What is the core you need to work on to direct the hundreds of emergent properties of your enterprise? Discover that now…
In post: “Architect Enterprise Peace?”, I introduced you to one emergent property of enterprises and the emergent architecture behind it.
How to architect for enterprise peace?
Have you ever thought about this question from the stance of your responsibility, when you create, work on and work with systems and organizations?
Enterprise Peace – the ability to drive order and harmony from your products, services, systems and organizations, is just one of many properties of your enterprise that are emergent.
What about other emergent properties of your enterprise? Consider the list:
- Performance – the ability to create business results from your systems and organizations
- Growth – the ability to expand your systems and organizations; your products and services, quantitatively and qualitatively, while servicing clients
- Adaptation – the ability to change your products, services, systems and organizations in response to changes in business circumstances
- Progress – the ability to be innovative and sustain in markets
- Autonomy – the ability to become a recognizable entity, gaining stature and brand
- Synergy – the ability to cooperate with other parties and multiply and surpass your influence
- Safety – the ability to secure, maintain, enable and sustain yourself, your staff, your clients, your environments by applying your products, services, systems and organizations
- Health – the ability to improve the health of your people and your clients by the usage of your products, services, systems and organizations
- Wealth – the ability to increase resources with your products, services, systems and organizations
- Happiness – the ability to drive joy from working with your systems and organizations
- Freedom – the ability to overcome hindrance or restraint with your products, services, systems and organizations
And this list can continue on.
And these are only the positive ones!
Enterprises also may overcome or they may instigate many negative emergent properties such as crises, cascades, busts, disruptions and even war in cases where we stretch the definition of enterprises to include country-states.
But that’s not the point I want to make. I expect you understand: there are emergent properties; that emergent properties are inherently neutral phenomena and you can have positive and negative ones. And I expect you try to stimulate the positive ones and mitigate the negative ones so you help in bettering the world.
There is another point I want to make.
Have you recognized the template I used in the list?
[value] – the ability to [desirable outcome] with your products, services, systems and organizations.
Enterprise Peace – the ability to drive order and harmony from your products, services, systems and organizations
Core in this template is ‘the ability to’
The point I want to make is the claim: your products, services, systems and organizations embed the ability to instigate, stimulate and maintain any kind of emergent property.
This means, when you work on your products, services, systems or organizations it is you who makes this emergent property happen; be it a positive or a negative property; be it peace or war.
Since you are responsible for your products, services, systems or organizations, for example because you are a developer or a decision maker concerning them, you are also responsible for the emergent properties that arise from them. You are responsible for the footprint your products, services, systems or organizations leave behind for both the betterment and deterioration of life of all.
And, I expect you are aware of this responsibility and you live up to it.
The point is, do you understand how emergent properties come about and are you able to guide them into desired directions?
