Effective Strategy of Adaptation

The Authors have been able to propose an Effective Strategy of Adaptation to the end of helping the strategic management of organisations, and most particularly of business entities, deal with uncertainty. 


Under the name of Chaodynamics of Uncertainty, the Authors have housed and summarised the entire theoretical body that they have introduced as a result of their lengthy analysis of uncertainty.


Chaodynamics of Uncertainty is most useful while an organisation is being designed or reengineered since it lends itself properly to the erratic, complex, and fractal perspectives of new ventures and entrepreneurship.    


The Labyrinthine Path and the Daedalean Experience being the emblematic expressions of Uncertainty, they can also be considered to be the emblematic analytical concepts of Chaodynamics of Uncertainty and, consequently, of new ventures and entrepreneurship.


Chaodynamics of Uncertainty is the reflection of a resolutely existential and human-centric theoretical body. It is built upon the assumption that the relevant strategies are those that call on the actors of an organisation as human beings, capable of judgements and initiatives, and not as holder of titles or representatives of an institutional position.


Chaodynamics of Uncertainty shows that a management of uncertainty is possible. That management is made possible if a broadening of the very idea of rationality is considered. A rational behaviour in the face of uncertainty is then both intellectually conceivable and practically possible. But such a management can be implemented under a specific condition, which can generically be stated as follows:  “One has to adopt strategies that are likely to take uncertainty as a positive resource while designing and implementing its management”.


According to the Authors, management of Uncertainty has to rely on the following three interrelated analytical concepts:


ü Partnership-Based Adherence – mode of interaction between the members of a community in which a common strategy can actually be assumed by all and everyone


ü Constant Structure of Permanent Adjustment – institutionalised opportunity of space and time where the partners meet to share their feelings of Uncertainty and deprivation, to set about implementing a consensual management of their differences and antagonistic views, and to make the necessarily temporary adjustments of the system, which must perpetually be redefined


ü Paradoxical Coexistence – one must allow the paradoxical coexistence of an assertive individual in a group and the integration in the organisational system in such a manner as it is not prejudicial, neither to the individual nor to the organisational group 


As a by-concept deriving from the main interrelated analytical concepts, the Authors have also introduced a notion that the Founder has deemed especially useful in the field of private equity:


ü Partnership-Based Relationship of Reciprocal Reliance – the Authors state that reliance is a notion that goes farther than interdependency because it adds a dimension of reciprocal trust between the parties; the reciprocity of the trust, as well as the need of the other, guarantees the respect of the identity of the partner
