The concept of systems of denial was introduced in a paper by Andrew Hill and Stephen Gerras about strategic resistance to military innovation. They explored how successful organizations focus organizational energy and attention on refining their dominant theories of competition, often resulting in dysfunctional organizational responses, or systems of denial, to strategic anomalies - inconvenient information - that contradict assumptions.

The behavior patterns of these systems apply not only to successful armies, but also to e.g. IT-departments, businesses and the public sector.

When implementing a new business application, most organizations feel they need to choose between “build” versus “buy”. Building your own application means everything is possible, but building complex applications is a risky venture. Buying a standard application provides all the advantages of pre-configuration, but has limited flexibility. Although most organizations prefer standard applications, they end up adapting them, leading to high cost of ownership, and long change cycles.

However, a third approach has emerged, reconciling the differences between build and buy. Model-driven applications come with an out-of-the-box configuration, as would be expected of a packaged business application, yet it can be adapted without development effort.

Organisaties opereren in steeds sneller veranderende omgevingen. Veranderingen in klantengedrag, wet- en regelgeving, technologie en marktomstandigheden maken hun omgeving steeds complexer en hebben een verlammend effect op de wendbaarheid. Organisaties moeten methoden vinden om weer wendbaar te worden en om te kunnen gaan met continue verandering.

Many commercial and public organizations are caught in a negative bureaucracy spiral. They have numerous points of interpretation, decision making, transfer, translation and evaluation in which the meaning of regulatory and business requirements is lost or becomes eroded. Dependencies are overlooked and anomalies surfaced only after high-risk decisions have been taken. The result is a vicious spiral of frustration and demotivation, stakeholder irritation and considerable financial loss.

For most product manufacturers, delivering adequate documentation is a constant challenge. The increasing complexity of products and the stricter regulations for product documentation often lead to extensive documentation sets with 500+ pages manuals on-line or in print. The question is: how effective is all this documentation?

Instruction manuals, users guides, and other types of documentation have always been the way manufacturers distributed the how-to information about their products to customers, as well as sales and support staff and other employees.  This kind of catch-all, one-size document forces every user to sift through irrelevant information, applying their own context to find solutions to their problems. Even when they are successful, users remember the experience as painful and tedious.

Policies expressed in legislation are the basis upon which public services are built. Therefore one would expect that legislation and innovative use of legislation is a key element in eGovernment initiatives. However, it almost seems that policies and their expressions in legislation live in a parallel universe of the eGovernment universe.
