His Last Bow: Sherlock Holmes and Embracing Chaos To Build Compliance Programs


I thought about this final Holmes short story when I read an article in the November edition of Fast Company, entitled “Secrets of the Flux Leader”, where author Robert Safian engaged in an interesting discussion how of brilliantly managed chaos can lead to success in a wide range of companies and enterprises. If there is one thing about Sherlock Holmes his mind brought clarity to the chaos of a crime scene and all the attendant evidence, both real and imaginary. Safian, who coined the term “Generation Flux” in a previous article, explained “how the dizzying velocity of change in our economy has made chaos the defining feature of modern business.” He described Generation Flux people as those who will thrive best in this environment of rapid change. “It is a psychographic, not a demographic–you can be any age and be GenFlux. Their characteristics are clear: an embrace of adaptability and flexibility; an openness to learning from anywhere.”
