Butterfly Effects

by Heather Oxman
Prediction and control are impossible in [Complex Adaptive Systems], and the best we can hope to do is anticipate and influence. We can never know how our actions will combine with other system dynamics to create huge impacts or to completely miss the mark and cause no impact at all. Prediction and control are impossible in Complex Adaptive Systems, and the best we can hope to do is anticipate and influence. We can never know how our actions will combine with other system dynamics to create huge impacts or to completely miss the mark and cause no impact at all.

Sometimes the system just seems poised to respond in exponential ways to whatever conditions are present at the initiation of an event. This is the source of “butterfly effects.” Given the right initial conditions, a small move in the beginning can trigger a huge response—like when a small amount of information can trigger a landslide shift in feelings across a system. Other times, initial conditions can damp any attempt to bring about huge changes.

This model reveals the essence of how public relations and marketing professionals do their work. The best of them know that the success and wide popularity of their products has less to do with the product itself and more to do with the conditions (Container, Differences, Exchanges) in the environment that shape the patterns of engagement and spending at any given point. Given that two versions or models of any product are generally essentially the same, the successful marketer will know that it is the demographic data (Container and Difference questions), the timeliness and quality of the service or product (Difference and Exchange questions), and the attractiveness and "hook" of the message (Exchange and Difference questions), that will make the difference between a product becoming a trend and its becoming a bust. YouTube videos that go viral do so because of the Butterfly Effects. Their popularity is generally less dependent on quality of the video than on the audience; their needs, interests, and cultural contexts; and the ways in which the messages are carried.

In these times of global social, economic, and political upheaval, individuals and groups who are in power and those who want power are seeing the "butterfly" impacts of their decisions and actions, even. In the spring of 2011, one young woman who said she would not be left homeless because she lost her job in an economic recession turned into nation-wide peaceful rebellion that resulted in public national debate about political and social equity and discrimination. Rebellion and revolution in one country ignites local voices in another country.

Wise practitioners and professionals who want to be intentional in their work build a brand or create political or social upheaval by taking advantage of this phenomenon. Knowing that they can't predict or control their exact impact, they use Adaptive Action to 1) see, understand, and influence patterns of decision making and interaction that frame the engagement of their products and ideas in the greater community and 2) make continuous adjustments over time as they see and gauge the impact of each cycle of action.

Boundaries

by Heather Oxman
A boundary exists in a complex system whenever same and different meet. A boundary can be:
- Physical (fences, building departments, walls, belts) These boundaries physically separate the diferences, holding the similarities together.
- Emotional (affiliation, love, hate, fear) Emotional boundaries draw people or repel them without physical limitations. - Emotional (affiliation, love, hate, fear) Emotional boundaries pull people in or repel them without physical limitations.
- Geographic (state or country borders, mountain ranges, oceans) These may be seen as physical boundaries, but they are natural boundaries separating geographic areas of the globe.
- Cultural (traditions, taboos, rituals) Cultural boundaries hold the community together and set them apart from others by the coherent patterns they generate within the community. - Cultural (traditions, conventions, beliefs, rituals) Cultural boundaries hold the community together and set them apart from others by the coherent patterns they generate within the community.
- Based on any relevant difference in the system - These separate teenage and neighborhood cliques, for instance, setting them apart from others who are otherwise just like them.

Sometimes boundaries are permeable--things can pass through them easily. Boundaries between parents and children exist primarily due to age and role differences, are most often permeable as they share information, resources, chores, and other resources of value within the family.

As connections have become more global and countries have become less regional, all parts of the globe are becoming more diverse. This diversity is forcing boundaries to become more permeable as groups that used to be isolated and strongly bound are finding they are interdependent with other groups around the world. Sometimes, however, those boundaries remain impermeable, causing conflict and bias between bounded groups..

This diversity is forcing boundaries to become more permeable as groups that used to be isolated and strongly bound are finding they are interdependent with other groups around the world. Sometimes, however, those boundaries remain impermeable, causing conflict and bias between bounded groups.

Sometimes boundaries are explicit, as in a culture's use of surnames to shape identity. In earlier times, the tribe or community to which you belonged defined you, both inside and outside the group. Your last name was an explicit statement of the boundary where you stopped and the "other" started. That particular way of defining difference between self and other has continued through centuries fo cultural development, even though its evolution has taken slightly different paths, depending on local culture.

Sometimes boundaries are implicit. In today's diverse culture, it is not always necessary or politically correct to make all boundaries explicit. For instance, in the US, employers cannot make employment decisions based on gender or age. Those boundaries that define who someone is as male or female, and those that somehow separate "young" from "middle age" from "old" may be differences, but they legally cannot be considered as differences that make a difference when US employers are hiring. Sometimes boundaries are implicit. In today's diverse culture, it is not always necessary or politically correct to make all boundaries explicit. For instance, in some countries, law dictates that employers cannot make employment decisions based on gender or age or physical disability. Those boundaries that define who someone is as male or female, and those that somehow separate "young" from "middle age" from "old" or an amputee, or blind or hearing impaired, may be differences, but they legally cannot be considered as differences that make a difference when those employers are hiring.

At the same time, there are individuals for whom particular characteristics are preferred. For them, race or religion or social class or background or life style may become an implicit boundary--one that is not spoken or described by law, but that is observed by tradition, action, and preference. This can be a productive preference when it strengthens a community or builds trust and a sense of belonging. On the other hand, taken to the extreme, this can also be the source of bias and prejudice. At the same time, there are individuals for whom particular characteristics are preferred. For them, race or religion or social class or background or life style may become an implicit boundary--one that is not spoken or described by law, but that is observed by tradition, action, and preference. When hiring a new scholar in a religious community, for instance, it would be essential to the Jewish community that their scholar be Jewish, to the Islamic community that their scholar be Muslim, and to the Baptist community that their scholar be Christian. Imagining otherwise would be an interesting shift in patterns and boundary permeability. This boundary condition of impermeability however, can be a productive preference when it strengthens a community or builds trust and a sense of belonging. On the other hand, taken to the extreme, this can also be the source of bias and prejudice.

Any boundary generates turbulence, but turbulence can be productive (like learning or love) or it can be destructive (like bias or war). The other conditions of the system (container and exchange) determine the nature of the turbulence at any given boundary.

HSD Magic 21

by Heather Oxman
In HSD, we believe that three conditions in the system shape the speed, path, and direction of self-organization--they shape the patterns that emerge in the system. In her ground-breaking research, Glenda Eoyang named these conditions as Container, Difference, and Exchanges. For thorough desciption of these conditions, please see visit the "CDE page":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/cde of this wiki.

The HSD Magic 21 is a way of using the CDE to focus in on particular patterns in your system as you engage in "Adaptive Action":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/adaptive_action.

In the "What?" phase of Adaptive Action, the Magic 21 helps you see specific conditions that are shaping patterns of your wicked issue. In the "What?" phase of Adaptive Action, the Magic 21 helps you see specific conditions that are shaping patterns of your wicked issue.

In the "So what?" phase of Adaptive Action, the Magic 21 helps you consider the impact of each conditions and identify informed, wise action to influence your patterns.

Architectural Model

by Heather Oxman
In HSD we consider the alignment among what we believe, how we work together, and the ways we support that work. This model is useful whether we need to explore new ways of working together and when we want to examine what currently exists. In building a home or office space, the purpose a room is to serve (its function) sets the parameters for the structures that create that space. Form (structure) follows purpose (function). There should be a similar alignment in organizations. Operational and functional structures and constructs that dictate the work should align with what we believe and how we function to live out those beliefs. In HSD we consider the alignment of what we believe with how we work together and the ways we support that work. This alignment is useful whether we need to explore new ways of working together or when we want to examine what currently exists. In building a home or office space, the purpose a room will serve (its function) sets the parameters for the structures that create that space. Form (structure) follows function (purpose). There should be a similar alignment in organizations. Operational and functional structures and constructs that shape the work should align with what we believe and how we live out those beliefs.

Complex systems require organizational structures that allow us to function in adaptive and responsive ways, according to the work we have to do and according to what we believe about the work we have to do. So we take the “Form follows function” saying to the next level: “Form follows function, which flows from what we believe to be important.” The model invites us to dialogue about the following questions:
# What do we believe about our work? Beliefs can be tricky to talk about. Using this model does not call for extended word-smithing about flowery belief statements. It’s just asking us to get clear about the basic beliefs or assumptions we carry about our work. What do we believe or value about customer service? What do we know from research about what constitutes effective practice? What do we consider to be important about how we treat people and get our work done?
# How do we need to function to live out our beliefs? Belief statements are only of value if they lead to action. So it’s important to move from the discussion of what we believe about our work to a discussion of what that means about how we function together to live out those beliefs. This is one reason we work with groups to identify their simple rules. Those are the brief, generalizable action statements that inform interactions and decision making to build coherent patterns across the whole.
# What organizational structures, constructs, and connections will allow us to function in those ways? A functioning system is made up of different types of structures that work interdependently to as we do our work. When thinking about structures in a system, think about 1) the content of the work we do; 2) the ways we share resources and information; 3) how and by whom decisions get made; and 4) who is accountable for what and how we hold each other accountable.
Step into the Architectural Model; use it to examine the structures in your system. What alignment do you find? Where might you shift your current structures or establish new ones that help you function in ways that let you live out what you believe about the work you have committed to do.

Adaptive Capacity

by Heather Oxman
Adaptive Capacity is the ability to see, understand, and influence patterns in human systems. In HSD, we think of it as the set of skills, abilities, and insights that build resilience and sustainability in individuals, couples, groups, organizations, and communities. The ability to engage in ongoing and multiple cycles of Adaptive Action is core to the degree to which any system has adaptive capacity. We use the core principles and metaphors of HSD, as they are described and applied throughout this Wiki site to work with people to build their individual or collective adaptive capacity. Adaptive Capacity is the ability to see, understand and influence patterns in human systems. In HSD, we think of it as the set of skills, abilities, and insights that build resilience and sustainability in individuals, couples, groups, organizations, and communities. Adaptive capacity depends on the ability to engage in ongoing and multiple cycles of Adaptive Action; the more a system is able to engage in those ongoing cycles, the more adaptive capacity is present within the system. We use these essential principles and metaphors of HSD, as they are described and applied throughout this Wiki site to work with people to build their individual or collective adaptive capacity.

These "essentials of HSD" form the core from which all other models and methods are derived. It is our belief that building facility in the use of these ideas and concepts builds adaptive capacity. These "essentials of HSD" form the core from which all other models and methods are derived. Building skills and comfort in the use of these ideas and concepts increases adaptive capacity.

Adaptive Action Experiments

by Heather Oxman
People around the world are using "Adaptive Action":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/adaptive_action to work more productively in all kinds of complex situations. They face challenges that are old and new, but they are all wicked challenges because old paradigms, traditional approaches, and complicated tools do not work on them. In any other frame, these problems are simply intractable. From the HSD point of view, using Adaptive Action, new options for action emerge. These stories tell the tale. People around the world use "Adaptive Action":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/adaptive_action to work more productively in all kinds of complex situations. They face challenges that are old and new, big and small, daily and long term. Now, no matter the size and duration of a challenge, each becomes "wicked and sticky" because old paradigms, traditional approaches and complicated tools do not work on them. These problems are stubbornly unyielding to other devices and ways of working and can come back to trip us again and again. With the HSD point of view, using Adaptive Action, new options for action emerge. These stories tell the tale.

Adaptive Action

by Heather Oxman
Adaptive Action Planning is an iterative planning process
involving three questions.

# *What?* – We gather pertinent data from across the environment to develop a picture of the underlying dynamics of our current status. What are the patterns we see and what do we know about their impact on the system?
# *So What?* – We examine data to make sense of it. We come to understand what the “picture” of our current status means and begin to explore and plan next steps. We explore the impact of the system patterns on the whole, part, and greater whole; the conditions (CDE) that generated those patterns; and options for action that can shift the patterns to make the system more adaptable, more sustainable, more fit.
# *Now What?* – We take action and then pause for a second check to measure our impact. By following up and asking where we are now and what is to be done next, we start the next cycle in the iterative process.

Progressing through the three steps to collect and analyze data that informs next steps becomes an ongoing cycle that can be carried out at all levels of the system. This sounds and looks much like the "Plan-Do-Check-Act"-type models that are used in a number of approaches to change. There are, however, fundamental differences that set Adaptive Action apart.
--What? So What? and Now What? questions examine the dynamic patterns of decision making and interaction.
--Analysis of those patterns focuses on understanding the conditions (Containers, Differences, Exchanges) that generate those patterns.
--Some options for action can emerge from decisions to amplify or damp current patterns by influencing environmental conditions.
--Other options for action can emerge from decisions to shape new patterns by shifting environmental conditions toward greater sustainability and fitness.
--This approach to planning is intended to be iterative or nonlinear, meaning the cycle never ends. Each "Now What?" returns to a new "What?" to launch a new cycle.
--This constant cycling through means it can happen as in the span of a heartbeat or across the arc of a longitudinal study.
--The constant cycling through also requires that the we remain in a stance of inquiry, always watching and remaining open to what we can learn from the dynamics that swirl around us.

In a human system, long-range change can happen as individuals and groups use multiple and connected cycles of Adaptive Action to shape their own patterns of productivity and performance to support the overall, agreed-upon goals of the system. This shared direction and action is what we refer to as "coherence":http://wiki.hsdlearning.org/coherence in the system and is a more effective and productive approach to planning than traditional strategic planning.

This shared direction and action is what we refer to as coherence in the system and is a more effective and productive approach to planning than traditional strategic planning.

Adaptive Action

by Heather Oxman
Adaptive Action Planning is an iterative planning process
involving three questions.

# *What?* – We gather pertinent data from across the environment to develop a picture of the underlying dynamics of our current status. What are the patterns we see and what do we know about their impact on the system?
# *So What?* – We examine data to make sense of it. We come to understand what the “picture” of our current status means and begin to explore and plan next steps. We explore the impact of the system patterns on the whole, part, and greater whole; the conditions (CDE) that generated those patterns; and options for action that can shift the patterns to make the system more adaptable, more sustainable, more fit.
# *Now What?* – We take action and then pause for a second check to measure our impact. By following up and asking where we are now and what is to be done next, we start the next cycle in the iterative process.

Progressing through the three steps to collect and analyze data that informs next steps becomes an ongoing cycle that can be carried out at all levels of the system. This sounds and looks much like the "Plan-Do-Check-Act"-type models that are used in a number of approaches to change. There are, however, fundamental differences that set Adaptive Action apart.
--It is assumed that the questions are based in the dynamics, examining patterns of decision making and interaction.
--Analysis of those patterns focuses on understanding the conditions that generate those patterns.
--What? So What? and Now What? questions examine the dynamic patterns of decision making and interaction.
--Analysis of those patterns focuses on understanding the conditions (Containers, Differences, Exchanges) that generate those patterns.

About

by Heather Oxman
What is Human Systems Dynamics?
Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) is an emerging field of theory and practice that uses principles from complex adaptive systems to inform action in any social context. The study and application of the principles of HSD help build adaptive capacity in individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities as they look for ways to live and work together in sustainable ways. In HSD, we function according to a set of simple rules that guides our decision making and interactions.
* Teach and learn in every interaction.
* Give and get value for value.
* Seek the true and the useful.
* Attend to the whole, the part, and the greater whole.
* Share your HSD story.
* Engage in joyful practice.

To learn the latest about what’s happening with HSD, join Glenda (@ GlendaEoyang) and/or Royce (@ rjholladay) on Twitter.

This site is organized to help you know what HSD is and what it has to offer you in your own journey to build and sustain healthy, resilient relationships at work, at home, and in your communities:

* "HSD Core":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/hsd_core
Human Systems Dynamics is a growing and emergent field of study that touches on a wide range of ways to see, understand, and influence patterns of interaction and decision making at all scales of human systems. At its core, however, are a very few, very powerful concepts that frame this new paradigm of thought an action. You can learn about the HSD core concepts and their applications in human systems. This section includes a glossary and links to other online resources that will help you learn about HSD, as well as the HSD Institute and all it has to offer.

* "Challenges":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/challenges
Our clients face huge challenges as they navigate today’s turbulent landscapes. They are overwhelmed by the diversity of thought, culture, opportunities, barriers, and human potential that faces them everyday. They stand against forces from multiple sources inside and outside their organizations—even as their own decisions have impact in places and ways beyond that they think they can know and control. Finally they work in a constant stream of data, information, and feedback that contributes to their learning and to the complexity of the work they face every day. Based on our combined years of consulting and service in public and private sectors, we defined this list of challenges that emerge as our clients have struggled to build organizational capacity for dealing with their organizational and professional challenges. Check out the "Challenges":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/challenges page to see a list of the basic challenges we work with clients to address. Each link then takes you to a page of specific information that explains how we see the challenge play itself out in human systems, a list of tasks for leaders who want to meet that challenge, a list of core capacities necessary for accomplishing those tasks, and a list of models and methods we associate more specifically with that particular challenge. As you move from one challenge to another, you will recognize the overlap in capacities and models and methods.


* "Arenas of HSD Practice":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/arenas_of_practice
One of the gifts HSD offers is its unique ability to explain underlying dynamics of human interaction. This has played itself out in two key ways as practitioners and professionals from around the world have come to use HSD in their work. First, HSD has contributed to highly effective practice in many different areas of practice and academic study. HSD Professionals come from a variety of field and sectors. The Practices page cites and explains a number of ways HSD principles show up in these rich and varied areas.

* "Applications":http://wiki.hsdinstitute.org/applications
Second, HSD helps us understand how a number of interventions and programs work, providing us with a more powerful path for inquiry and intervention. Associates who have been trained in HSD also use a number of useful and powerful interventions as tools for understanding and shaping patterns in systems. The Applications page links you to a number of those tools and describes how they are used to build adaptive capacity.

4 Truths

by Heather Oxman
We use this model to help us understand different perspectives in our work with individuals, groups, teams, and organizations. It describes 4 ways people see their “truth” in the world. We use this model to help us understand different perspectives in our work with individuals, groups, teams, and organizations. It describes four ways people see their “truth” in the world.

* *Objective Truth* is what exists and can be proved in this physicality. (A round ball of fire appears to cross the sky each day.)
* *Normative Truth* is what we, as a group, agree is true. (Our culture has agreed to use the word “day” to name that time when the sky is lit.) * *Normative Truth* is what we, as a group, agree is true. (English speakers agreed to use the word “day” to name that time when the sky is lit.)
* *Subjective Truth* is how the individual sees or experiences the world. (Today is a good day for me.)
* *Complex Truth* recognizes the validity of all those and chooses which one is most useful at any given time. (If today is a good day for MOM, then let’s take advantage of that and ask for ice cream for dinner.)

As a model, the 4 Truths represents the various perspectives or ways we claim truth. As a method, it becomes the basis for inquiry and questioning as individuals and groups seek to accomplish such tasks as
--identifying their similarities and differences,
--finding common ground for problem solving and decision making, and
--understanding others' perspectives and actions.

3 Kinds of Change

by Heather Oxman
Systems experience different types of change, and each requires its own approaches for support and leadership.

* *Static change* is the simplest, being two-dimensional, it depends on direction and force. It is also predictable. Static change is about moving from Point A to Point B by applying force or external motivation/incentive. In human systems, the following types of assumptions emerge from this perspective of change.
--Only the outcomes of a process or effort are considered, with little or no attention to how those outcomes are achieved.
--Incentives and rewards or punishment provide the motivation for change in behavior or performance. --Incentives and rewards, or punishment, provide the motivation for change in behavior or performance.
--Projects can be managed by tracking only the before and after.
* *Dynamic change* is more complicated, being multi-dimensional. It can best be described as moving along a smooth trajectory toward a predictable end point. Like water shooting out of a hose, if pressure and angle are known, you can predict height and distance of the arc of water. In human systems, the following types of assumptions emerge from this perspective of change:
--Change occurs according to developmental stages that can be described, tracked, and predicted.
--If people understand the stages of change they will experience, they will be more likely to move through those stages gracefully and smoothly. --If people understand the stages of change they will experience, they are more likely to move through those stages gracefully and smoothly.
--You can use externally-derived standards and benchmarks as incentives for change.
* *Dynamical change* is complex and results from multiple forces acting in unpredictable ways, generating surprising outcomes. Think about water dripping from a faucet. The rate of drops depend on too many factors to to predict, precisely, when each drop will fall. The amount of deposit in the pipes; the temperature, wind, and humidity in the room; and the amount of water in the pipe interact in unpredictable ways to determine when drops will fall—non-predictable and maddening in the middle of the night. In human systems, the following types of assumptions emerge from this perspective of change: * *Dynamical change* is complex and results from multiple forces acting in unpredictable ways, generating surprising outcomes. Think about water dripping from a faucet. The rate of drops depend on too many factors to to predict, precisely, when each drop will fall such as: the amount of deposit in the pipes; the temperature, wind, and humidity in the room; and the amount of water in the pipe. These factors and others interact in unpredictable ways to determine when drops will fall—non-predictable and maddening in the middle of the night. In human systems, the following types of assumptions emerge from this perspective of change:
--While you can neither predict nor control how change will happen, you can set conditions that will be more likely to shape the emergent change.
--Change on the large scale is dependent on change at the local scale.
--A short list of simple rules can help to shape change across a large system by establishing conditions that have the potential to shape the desired patterns.

Each type of change is present in a system to some degree or other. Human systems, however, are highly diverse, open to influence from inside and out, and have the capacity to learn from past events. These characteristics put them squarely in the realm of dynamical change. Leaders who understand this shape their decisions and interactions to take advantage of this complex nature of the systems where they work and play.
