Antifragility: A User’s Manual

I’ve just returned from a two-day program for senior management run by the NECSI as part of the Executive Education programme.

The program’s strapline was ‘Learn to thrive in a volatile and complex world by creating Antifragile organizations that thrive on stress and disorder’ or put slightly differently ‘When strong winds blow, don’t build walls, but rather windmills: there is a way to turn every bit of adversity into fuel for improvement.’

The 2 days were hosted by Nassim Nicholas Taleb and Yaneer Bar-Yam.

These posts are my take on the ideas presented. There are in no way an accurate or complete and where possible I’m using examples from my own context rather than the examples given by Nassim or Yaneer.
