How Fragile is your Organization?
Jos Nieland, SIG Leader
In his brand new book 'Antifragile', Nassim Nicolas Taleb takes his method of dealing with Black Swans to a new level. No, you still can't predict Black Swans. These low-probability, high-impact events don't show up in any (historical) data and are unnoticed. And because of that, you can't measure or calculate their risk (neither their probability nor impact).

However, you can analyze - in a qualitative way - whether your organization (or any system or a country) will be harmed disproportionally by a Black Swan. By examining its FRAGILITY.
