Reducing the complex to the complicated

The key to solutions to large scale, complex human challenges is to find a sufficient superordinate goal among all stakeholders to allow us to state the multi-element complex problem as an approximately non-complex—though perhaps massive—complicated problem.

“Complex” problems befuddle us, but “complicated” problems are solvable if we have a map that explains in which direction each piece needs to move, and we can apply enough resources to manage enough of the moving pieces in a coordinated fashion.

We propose a new framework that combines disciplines and new technologies to produce this map.
