The practice of crafting strategy, based on principles of complexity theory, is a fascinating emerging discipline which could consume vast time and energy in a project.

However, we know that in complex situations (rather than complicated ones), the emphasis needs to be on continual cycle of probe-sense-respond. From my experience this constant “fast thinking” cycle needs to be paired with what Daniel Kahneman [66] calls “slow thinking” which enables synthesis of the results of the fast cycles.

The more we build up these 'fast cycles', the more important advanced documentation becomes, to retrieve and action the insights for "slow thinking" synthesis.
