Reaction of Irshad Rampersad on review of Carsten Rutz23 november 2012
I have also read this article. Allan does indeed discuss that the Adaptive Cycle paradigm also occur in natural resources. I agree with you that this article is not the 'state of the art' article to represent the Adaptive Cycle. I think most readers will have to read this article twice to understand what Allan discusses about natural resources and that their behaviour is similar to the phases of the Adaptive Cycle. One of my comments on this article is that there is a difference in the behaviour of the objects in the Adaptive Cycle. If we apply the Adaptive Cycle in an organization, humans are involved. If we apply the Adaptive Cycle in a natural 'organization', nature is in charge. The difference here is that nature can be helped by humans to achieve its 'goal'. I wonder why people are interested in natural resources that behave according to the Adaptice Cycle. I agree it is a phenomenon but not as that interesting because humans have influence in that process. What do you think? Would applying the adaptive cycle for a natural resources be more useful than in an organization, where large steps can be made because an organization provides a service for its environment. Let me know what your opinion is, so that we can keep this discussion open.
