What they have in common is a repeating pattern that displays at every scale. If the replication is exactly the same at every scale, it is called a self-similar pattern. Fractals also includes the idea of a detailed pattern that repeats itself. For the IT community Object Orientated architectures and design methods are a real gift here but rarely used in organisation although they underpin the value and resilience of the app marketplace.

Statistical tails waging the dogs of truth

The general pattern of serious text books is to study a group of organisations that have a quality we desire or fear (and the boundary between those is more blurred that we think) and identify those aspects of the organisations which can be clearly identified by the researcher.

The diversity of participants in the process is also an issue and there are inherent dangers of pattern entrainment in workshop processes. One of the key points I have made over the years is that complexity based approaches are inherently messy in nature, we are dealing with non-linear problems and we need multiple methods and tools operating in different ways from which patterns can emerge that allow us to think strategically.
