Complex systems are all around us, from software projects to government bureaucracies. Each complex system fulfills some requirement of our changing world. As new requirements are added, and old requirements shift, complex systems must be modified to suit. Often, these modifications are added in layers, with each new layer added so as not to interfere with those that came before. after all, changing an active system engenders a risk of interruption to current systems.
Layers of complexity build up, unintegrated into the prior layers. As unintegrated changes build up, each new change must interact with all previous layers. Despite one's best efforts, each new change begins to carry the very risk of interruption one wished to avoid! If this process continues, a complex system becomes too convoluted for any individual to understand fully, and changes too risky for any team to attempt.

Our team focuses on iterative techniques, stabilizing situations without disruption. All while simplifying systems, and eliminating the need for outside assistance. After all, we honestly enjoy seeing a healthy system.
