Abstract

There is little knowledge in regards to the influence of complex systems thinking on the strategic modelling of stabilization operations. To better control the impact of information asymmetry in such context, this study focuses on gaining an understanding on how concepts and principles operate in theory and practice. Particularly, this study explores how the complexity of the environmental conditions influences stabilization operations as complex systems. Second, it addresses subsequent influences on a system’s required self-organizing ability to differentiate and integrate its various sub-systems, their organizational resources and competencies. Third, this study regards the development and adjustment of condition-dependent capabilities as key to reaching a state of dynamic equilibrium while processing, distributing and exchanging information. The aim of this study is both theoretical and practical: offering complex systems thinking as an alternative for the strategic modelling of stabilization operations and supporting the debate over the extent to which integration is feasible and desirable.
