  Without further ado, let’s pick up where we left off last week! We ended the post on a series of questions, which we can now start to follow up on, and let’s start from one that focused on an outlier:       Do people who have positive expectations from business see responsibility differently? […]

Just before Christmas 2015 I posted on the subject of What’s in a name?  That was the first time I used the term anthro-complexity in writing and I stated that it was the front runner to name a field. Previously I had used social and cognitive complexity but the former had been used elsewhere and […]
