Decision Making

Decision-Making in The New Reality: Complexity, Knowledge and Knowing

     by Alex Bennet and David Bennet (2013)

We live in a world that offers many possible futures. The ever-expanding complexity of information and knowledge provide many choices for decision-makers, and we are all making decisions every single day! As the problems and messes of the world become more complex, our decision consequences are more and more difficult to anticipate, and our decision-making processes must change to keep up with this world complexification. This book takes a consilience approach to explore decision-making in The New Reality, fully engaging systems and complexity theory, knowledge research, and recent neuroscience findings. It also presents methodologies for decision-makers to tap into their unconscious, accessing tacit knowledge resources and increasingly relying on the sense of knowing that is available to each of us.
Almost every day new energies are erupting around the world: new thoughts, new feelings, new knowing, all contributing to new situations that require new decisions and actions from each and every one of us. Indeed, with the rise of the Net Generation and social media, a global consciousness may well be emerging. As individuals and organizations we are realizing that there are larger resources available to us, and that, as complex adaptive systems linked to a flowing fount of knowing, we can bring these resources to bear to achieve our ever-expanding vision of the future. Are we up to the challenge?


“The original thinking and reality created in it is out of the box and brilliant. anyone that is part of any organization or any kind of community will greatly benefit from it.” –Susan Martin


“A bridging between KM and Neurosciences to help explain how learning occurs inside. The author makes complex issues understandable.” – Chulatep Senivongse


“Not only provides a map of the territory, but also explains key elements of interaction in that domain. I guarantee that when you complete your journey through this marvelous work that they have created, you will have the tools to decrease your anxiety and uncertainty, as well as help in more easily adapting to change, and dealing with all forms of complexity in any domain of choice.” –Boyd K.
