Antifragile: “Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile. Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better.” Nassem Talib
There are apparent and not so obvious implications of this model. For example, our drive to make everything lean or optimized by the reduction of redundancies tends to blow up under stress. Take JIT inventory for example. What happens when the supply chain breaks down and the only inventory you have in reserve is on the shelves and not in a back room? Exactly where several retailers found themselves a few weeks into the pandemic.
