Acting into uncertainty, ambiguity, and complexity requires continuous rational cognition, discernment, action, reflection, and adaptation. Bruce Waltuck shares his story of acting to create change without the awareness of the optimal patterns and methods for acting into complexity, and the consequences that followed. Each of you reading this will bring your own experiences, knowledge, understanding, and insights. As is the case with truly complex situations, we are compelled to look back at what we have done, and what we think happened. We hopefully learn in retrospect, and with new knowledge and understanding, consider what we might have done differently- and will do differently in the future.
