Future Filter -  Fuzzy Logic, Complexity and Chaos Theory

Steve Wille, Great-West Life

In prior sessions we looked at the People/Feelings Filter and the Security/Quality Filter.  This month we continue with the third part of 3-Filters Management, looking at the Future/Innovation Filter.  To maintain success over the long term, you need to go beyond leading people and improving quality.  You need to innovate and adapt to a change.  The future is not a simple linear extension of the present.  It is unknown, unpredictable, and unforgiving if you arenít prepared.  We will explore some great tools for dealing with ambiguity and complexity:

  • Collective Intelligence
  • Disorder and Order
  • Fuzzy logic
  • Independent Agents
  • Tipping point
  • The Herd
  • Fractals
  • Butterfly Effect

If you have heard Steve Wille speak at RMIMA before, you know this session is one you donít want to miss because he challenges us with new perspectives on old problems.  For 25 years Steve Wille has lead software development in the corporate world and has a clear record of success with complex, mission critical projects.  Several years ago he took a sabbatical from the corporate world to read, write, and teach, leading project management training sessions in corporations throughout the country.  He now works at Great-West Life as a senior applications manager.
