Unintended Consequences • Working for water – Eucalyptus trees • Bread wrapper – biodegradable • The TOYOTA Catastrophe • What really did take place? • Complacency? • Arrogance? • Complexity? • Western style of management? FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE SYSTEM
Counter-intuitiveness • Actions which are intended to produce a desired outcome may in fact generate opposite results • The Welfare System in South Africa was meant to alleviate hardships for the deprived • Counter-intuitively it has attracted poor families to the region. It has reduced the incentive to work

Characteristics - Wicked Problems Have No Stopping Rules No Definite Formulation WICKED PROBLEMS Planner Has No Right to Be Wrong You Don’t Understand The Problem Until You Have Developed A Solution Solutions Are Not True-or-False, But Better Or Worse
Part of the Pain • Part of the pain is a misunderstanding of the nature of the problems at hand. • More precisely, the pain is caused by working on a special class of problems – wicked problems – with thinking tools, and methods that are useful only for simpler (“tame”) problems.

The Black Swan unexpected can be predicted by extrapolating from variations in statistics BELIEF THAT THE WORLD BEHAVES AS A BELL CURVE
The Hard Questions? • Why with all the sophisticated forecasting and planning processes did the world not predict the global economic fall out? • We suggest that the reason for this lies in the planning processes which are based on FORECASTING, AND ANALYSIS. • THE REALITY IS THAT THE WORLD AS WE NOW UNDERSTAND IT IS AWASH WITH WICKED PROBLEMS
Dealing With Wicked Problems • The bottom line is that you cannot solve wicked problems – you can only dissolve such problems • Dissolution can only be achieved through re-designingthe system • Re-design can only be achieved through an understanding of social systems
What Is A System? • A system is a construct that the designer creates by assembling interactingparts of the world ( either concrete or abstract) for the purpose of design. This assemblage must satisfy two conditions : • The assemblage must exhibit emergingproperties that are not exhibited by any of its parts and will somehow be diminished if any of the parts is removed; • Each part must be interacting with at least one other part.
Social System Thinking • In a system problem the performance of the whole is derived from the interactions of the parts. • A system problem cannot be solved by focusing on independent parts. • The parts do NOT always perform in ways that are expected.
