Within the Complexity Space™ Framework, it is our belief that complex systems always exist within a context. That context both shapes, and is shaped by, a number of variables.
In our view, all Ecosystems share the following properties:
- Operates at multiple layers simultaneously
- Not immediately visible
- Not predictably influenced
- Inputs/outputs not proportional
- Exists in the context of a particular place and point in time
- Open to external systems
