There is logic behind any problem, the more complex the problem is, the more important to clarify nonlinear logic underneath.

With rapid change, fast growing information and frequent disruptions, a new paradigm arises out of advanced mindsets, updated knowledge, and structural approaches. 

It is transformational to “step outside” of the business system for having interdisciplinary perspectives to gain an in-depth understanding of the business dynamics, break down silos, handle different complexities at a different time or dimension to solve complex problems and achieve business coherence.

Crealogic (Creativity + Logic): Nowadays, the world becomes hyper-connected and interdependent, logic is the clue underneath complex problems. Intelligence is defined as capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, creativity is about figuring out alternative ways to solve problems. It is important to build a creative environment in which people will genuinely feel good, be open-minded, willing to share ideas, get involved with commitment to co-solve problems and unlock collective performance.

Logic enables us to uncover patterns and understand the interconnectivity underneath the surface. Creativity is consciousness with a sort of logic that allows people to see how all things can be both connected or disconnected to create completely new forms, ideas. Creative logic is usually nonlinear and multidimensional. So people who present creative logic can get themselves and others into “creative mode” to unleash creative potential, and demonstrate unimaginable contribution to innovation excellence.

Simplexity (Simplicity + Complexity) : When a business becomes overly complex, people get frustrated and annoyed by not being able to accomplish things productively. Over-complexity perhaps hides simple and innovative ways to achieve high performance because people involved often get lost, become an order taker, get stuck at old ways to do things, don't have the time to step back from the complexity, clarify the logic underneath, optimize the process to make improvement.

In the core of simplicity lies complexity. Often, the simpler people perceive in any problem is inherently more complex. This drives the search for simpler concepts and methods. The art of “simplexity” management is not to complicate things, but to eliminate unnecessary complications via multilateral consolidation, integration, and optimization, for reaching the next level of digital maturity.

Anathesis (Analysis + Synthesis)
: Either making tough decisions or solving complex problems, there’re multidimensional logical processes that get involved. Analysis is a procedure to break down an intellectual or substantial whole into parts or components. Synthesis is an opposite procedure to combine separate components to form a coherent whole. For complex problem-solving, it’s important for applying both analysis and synthesis to gain in-depth understanding and integrating a holistic perspective to solve it holistically.

Analysis answers the ‘what’ and ‘how’ questions while synthesis answers the ‘why’ and ‘what for’ questions. Analysis help us break things down into their components, gain the “know-how” knowledge technically; synthesis involves not only putting the bits together but blending them in such a way that the emergent whole is somehow more than the sum of its parts; not only focusing on technically right “big picture,” but also pondering what could be via multidimensional lens, anthropologically, ecologically, philosophically.

There are all sorts of problems and there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. The science of problem-solving is that there is logic behind any problem, the more complex the problem is, the more important to clarify nonlinear logic underneath, take multistage scenarios and select the right people for solving problems in the right way consistently.
