Hey everybody, Lou Hayes here from The Illinois Model.

I want to talk to you today about complexity. But not in the way the business blogs do. They tend to focus on things like emergence, patterns, volatility, uncertainty, unknowability. 

I want to talk about tension. What do I mean by tension? It's a tug-o-war; it's adversarial in nature between actors, values, beliefs, theories, positions, perspectives. 

In tension there will never be an answer. There will always be some sort of a sacrifice, a tradeoff, a compromise, an unintended consequence. 

Who's talking about these things with complexity? 

Drop me a line below. And let's continue this conversation!
