The part of the text in the book "tactical management needs flexible support in flexible processes" leads to a conclusion that businesses have to practice adaptability and test their capabilities often in order to maintain healthy operations. This element reminds me of the one of the most important elements in project management as well, the flexibility.
What is this about?
Welcome to the HUB for research <> practice of tactical management in complexity!
In terms of core disciplines, it is founded on management - information systems - complexity, with the aim to cross-fertilise any domain. The next level is its combination with Harvard's CID's Problem Driven Iterative Adaptation (PDIA) - as strategy for complexity!
In terms of industries, it has been established and proven in banking, consultancies, governmental and non-governmental sector ... circular economy, air pollution, ...
In terms of academia, it has been born in the research between Ghent University Belgium and University St. Kliment Ohridski North Macedonia, and continues its expansion by building bridges with affiliates in the Western Balkans region, Europe and the world.

Coronavirus: Commission hosts a European hackathon to develop innovative solutions to fight the outbreak
As of tomorrow and throughout the weekend, the Commission will host the pan-European #EUvsVirus Hackathon, under the patronage of Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth. The hackathon, led by the European Innovation Council and in close collaboration with the EU Member States, will connect civil society, innovators, partners and investors across Europe to develop innovative solutions aimed at fighting the coronavirus outbreak. Commissioner Gabriel said: “The #EUvsVirus Hackathon is a great example of the European cooperative spirit I so admire. When times get tough we come together, work together and we will beat this virus together for everyone. I thank all those that have given their free time, boundless energy and expertise to make this a reality. Tomorrow is just the beginning - the solutions will be the true reward.” Together with Commissioner Gabriel, interventions at the opening ceremony tomorrow are foreseen at highest level from representatives of EU Institutions, namely Luca Jahier, President of the European Economic and Social Committee, Apostolos Tzitzikostas, President of the European Committee of the Regions, and Cristian-Silviu Bușoi, Chair of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy ITRE at the European Parliament. Over 12,000 participants have registered to the hackathon, which is structured around several categories of problems that need short-term solutions in relation to coronavirus health and life, business continuity, remote working and education, social and political cohesion, digital finance and other challenges. All 27 EU Member States are taking part as well as other countries. The winning solutions will be invited to join a European Innovation Council COVID Platform, which will be launched here on 27 April, to facilitate connections with end users, such as hospitals, and provide access to investors, foundations and other funding opportunities from across the EU. Participants can still register on the EUvsVirus Hackathon website. The event will be streamed live on this webpage. The Commission is committing hundreds of millions of Euros in research and innovation actions to develop vaccines, new treatments, diagnostic tests and medical systems to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. More information is available here. (For more information: Johannes Bahrke – Tel: +32 229 58615; Marietta Grammenou - Tel.: +32 2 29 83583)
This segment of the book is an astonishing reminder that people from practice should have a voice in the decision making process. Listening and communication tend to be the strongest issues in companies. It is my strongest believe that encouraging leadership bottom-up is one of the essential factors in ensuring success in the company's operations.
In the book "Tactical Management in Complexity" the company research points out to one of the most important elements in every action that we commit, the vision. Both in companies and in life in general, the clear vision and mission give clear perception of the goals that need to be set. This element, as this book shows, often falls in a shadow in the companies. The tactical management brings out the importance of having a clear vision up front, and building on its basis towards achieving the goals and success.
