  1. Hi Peter,

    Looks like it was a good presentation. I would have attended if I could have been at the conference this year.

    This topic is an area on which I’ve spent a fair amount of research and cross-disciplined study time.

    You mention “building” the teams you mention. I my experience, you really can’t build a complex adaptive system, you need to grow it. While this is may see like a subtle difference it is an important one.

    Management can apply constraints to the system but with the self-organizing nature of the system they can’t control the growth, nor should they try. Just constrain it so that it is focused on a desired end goal.
