142), emphasizing that change transpires and diffuses step by step. Through gradual expansion of the adjacent possible, large-scale changes emerge over time. As Cilliers (1998) noted, local interaction “does not preclude wide-ranging inﬂuence— since the interaction is rich, the route from one element to any other can usually be covered in a few steps. As a result, the inﬂuence gets modulated along the way. It can be enhanced, suppressed or altered in a number of ways” (p. 4). Therefore, the behavior of the system is not a direct result of the number of interactions among individual elements but of the patterns that emerge from these interactions.
In contrast, Poole et al. (2000) pointed out that true chaos involves iteration of the same simple algorithm or behavior over and over, and thus true chaos is characterized by very few degrees of freedom. In fact, “the presence of chaos in observed organizational states is characteristic of an organizational system where, either through control and/or cooperation, independence and autonomy between individuals has been lost” (p. 334). , 2001). Thus, whereas chaotic systems have few degrees of freedom, complex systems have many (McKelvey, 2003).
However, the irreducibility of a complex system raises serious problems for crisis planners. As we discuss later, traditional crisis planning that schematizes and simpliﬁes potential crisis situations into their generic components runs counter to the need to situate complex systems in terms of history, context, and relationship networks. In order to deﬁ ne complex systems clearly, we have laid out seven separate principles: interacting agents, adaptability, self-organization, instability, inﬂuence of history, permeable boundaries, and irreducibility.
