How is complexity affecting your role as an ethical leader?

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Complicated problems differ from complex ones in important ways: 

Complicated Complex
Might have many moving parts, but interactions are linear and able to be modelled Interactions are dynamic or "emergent" and often hidden
Outcomes are reasonably predictable Outcomes cannot be accurately predicted
Systems can be de-constructed Elements are interdependent, and can't be untangled
Results are reproduceable Applying the same "solution" will generally yield different results 

Although complicated problems are challenging to solve, once solutions are found, they generally stay solved. Complex problems, on the other hand, are not solvable by applying static algorithms, rules and processes.

How is complexity in the professional environment impacting the role of CPAs as ethical leaders and trusted advisors?
