December 10 2015 Call with Tobias Fredberg Summary
by Marga Biller November 24, 2015
Tobias Fredberg is an Associate Professor at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweeden. During his presentation he stated that organizations are often good at solving complicated problems—often by taking an engineering approach: divide a problem into parts and then solve the component parts. But in organizations that are complex, complicated problem solving doesn’t work. Complex problems can’t be broken down. Instead, complexity translates into paradoxical tensions.
