Pratap Nambiar, Executive Chairman of Singapore-based Leadership Coaching & Consulting Company Thought Perfect, addresses the issues of complexity and competitive advantage.
As businesses become more complex, leaders need a more complex way of thinking to deal with them effectively. Making decisions based on the past will not provide the right answers, nor will a cause and effect mode of thinking.
Dealing with complexity requires leaders to look at things from completely new and unexpected perspectives. A more complex mind is a more developed mind and will be able to distinguish between the complicated and the complex problems to find a simple solution.
