Abstract

When coherence arises via emergence it can be attributed to serendipity. What is seldom realized is that serendipity may not be luck but the coming together of affordance with sagacity, that is, preparedness. If one treats emergence and its impacts as only the product of luck, then miracles and nasty surprises are the likely results. The opposite of sagacity is a lack of preparedness: “The ingredients include risks that are erroneously thought to be vanishingly small, complex technology that isn’t fully grasped by either top management or regulators, and tricky relationships among companies that are not sure how much they can count on their partners” (Thayer, 2010). One purpose of this book has been to equip the reader with the sagacity required to better embrace and understand emergence.
