16 Concepts of CAS In Business High Probability Scenarios –Multiple Factors –Frequent Iteration –Random Disturbance –Short Cycle Times –Many Possible Solutions Practical Expectations –Know Your Potential Business Value –Optimization of What? –Actionable Results What Do You Know? –Business Process Models –Entities and Attributes What Are The Key Factors How Do They Behave

17 Concepts of CAS In Business What Is Knowable –Butterfly Effect –Answers Vs. Tendencies Data Access Architecture –Global View –Business Processes –Technical Fragmentation Research And Development, Not Systems Development –A New Understanding –Iteration –The Right To Not Reach The Objective The Breakthrough Result –Counter-Intuitive Solutions

18 OBSERVATIONS State of the Science: -Stus Cambrian Explosion Model -Limited Modeling Vocabulary Attitudes: -Assumptions -Expectations -Precedent -Status Quo Business Value: -Counter Intuitive -Value Proposition -Lack of Self Knowledge -Lack of Data Access Methodology: -R&D vs. Systems Development -Systems Development Life Cycle Methodology Meets The Scientific Method
