‘Antifragility’ Learn Fast and Adapt, Or Die

Fragile systems are those systems that cannot adapt to unpredictable, volatile, and random. The term “antifragile” comes from Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s book “Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder.”   Antifragile systems or organizations are those that have a culture that enables them to learn fast from their environment and adapt to it. Biological systems are antifragile. Ecosystems are as well.  Human organizations are antifragile. There are cases were the act of predicting can actually cause the system to degrade.  Even if you could predict, you shouldn’t.
