The Monthly Systems Wisdom Summary: Converting from Mechanism to Systems Paradigm June 2020

 Success in the digital world demands Systems thinking, the systematic approach to manage the business, and the multi-disciplinary understanding of the digital business ecosystem.

Systems Thinking is about understanding interrelationships between parts and the whole. It helps digital leaders and professionals discover the interconnectivity and interdependence of the digital business ecosystem, help them get behind the "surface" validity and give them deeper insight into the nuances of why and how, and ensure that the digital business as an organic system growing and evolving with its environment in harmony.

Converting from Mechanism to Systems Paradigm  

Converting from the Mechanistic Paradigm to the Systems Paradigm It is true that information technology grows exponentially even in the case of the paradigm shift. It is also true that the growth of technology may trigger a paradigm shift. Those who look through the lens of the previous era see their own reality very differently from those who use the lens that the new era has crafted.

Design a Digital Organization from Multiple System Perspectives Running a digital organization is to connect the old and new, mix the solid and fluid to enforce digital confluence, foster innovation, and achieve people-centricity. Organizations generally consist of varying intersecting and interacting systems. But the strictly mechanic business architecture framework perhaps does not know how to address the business and people system dynamics. How to leverage flexibility as a guiding principle to design a highly responsive, self-adaptive, and high-performance digital organization from multiple systems perspectives?

Digital Shift: From a Mechanical to Sociological System From a philosophical perspective, all things serve a purpose. We may not understand the purpose, but all things serve one. Modern organization has a transcendent business purpose. Humans demand to be served, so they create mechanistic and sociological systems to serve them. Enterprises demand to be served, so they create positions of employment and mechanistic systems to serve them. These systems have a purpose for which they act to fill the purpose. The digital paradigm that is emerging is the sociological organization, which is alive, holistic, vibrant, energetic, responsive, fluid, innovative, and resilient.

How to Leverage Systems Thinking in Digital Paradigm Shift Just as the industrial revolution did a century and a half ago, the digital revolution is reshaping the way we live our lives and the way we work. It’s forcing a fundamental digital transformation of business and our society. Success in the digital world demands Systems thinking, the systematic approach to manage the business, and the multi-disciplinary understanding of the digital business ecosystem.

Is the New Age of Digital Paradigm Associated with Deep Ecology A definition for paradigms generally found is A worldview underlying the theories and methodology of a particular subject. A digital paradigm is an emerging digital ecosystem of principles, policies, and practices that set limits or boundaries; and also offer guidance for problem-solving or creating something new under the digital rules. It is the transformation that is reshaping our thinking and recasting the way we view ourselves, the systems of which we are the part of the environments in which we live, and the way we view the world.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 3 million page views with about 6800+ blog posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
