Antifragile Systems DesignAntifragile – Designing the Systems of the Future

Breakfast seminar

The seminar will give an introduction to Antifragile Systems Design – a set of techniques and practices that allow us to design resilient systems under conditions of volatility and uncertainty – perfect for companies that need to build modern systems in fast changing markets on quickly evolving technology platforms.  

Based loosely on the book ‘Anti-fragile’ by Nicholas Nassim Taleb, we look at how his theories on fragility and the ability to withstand shocks can be interpreted to help us design, produce, and manage better systems that can help us deal not only with failures, but also with rapidly changing markets and expectations in modern software development.

  • Agenda
  • Understanding volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity as the major inputs to design
  • The role of Systems Engineering in architecting modern solutions
  • Why we need to spend more time on system behaviour and less time on System Functionality
  • The role of architectural decision making in the resulting behaviour of a system

What you will take with you from the lecture: 

An understanding of what Antifragile Systems Design involves, and how it can be leveraged to build better and more flexible systems, and the next steps you need to take.
