Exploring the Practice of Antifragility

An Antifragile Antifragility Book!



In Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder (2012), Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) introduces Antifragility.

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.

Panel/Webinar Conversations – Practice Beyond the Rhetoric

Throughout 2015, various conversation panels focused on exploring the practice of antifragility (that is, Practice Beyond the Rhetoric) — hosted by Barry Bettman (@barrybettman), Si Alhir (@SAlhir), Russ Miles (@russmiles), and Ross Girardi (@Consciousmgt) — as well as share experiences and offer perspective on how to apply antifragility through the following questions:

  • How have you interpreted Taleb’s concept of Antifragility?
  • How have you translated your interpretation into practice?
  • What are the results and impacts of your efforts?

All the recordings are freely available — featuring:
