Covering some 10 years of practical solutions to business problems driven by complexity science techniques, we will run through a number of scientifically interesting case studies, mostly taken from successful projects at Eurobios. Ranging from airlines to factories to postmen, many lessons can be drawn on why such techniques worked, and what new developments were required to make those techniques work.
These cases neatly illustrate an unfortunate gap between much academic work in these areas and the understanding required to analyse and deal with business applications. Crossing that gap is an exciting, scientific challenge for the field of complexity science.
