C L I O S System ± Structural complexity ± The number of components in the system and the network of interconnections between them ± Behavioral complexity ± The type of behavior that emerges due to the manner in which sets of components interact ± Evaluative complexity ± The competing actions of decision makers in the system who have alternate views of “good” system performance ± Nested Complexity - The interaction between a complex “physical” domain and a complex “institutional” sphere Complex
