Polytely (from Greek roots meaning 'many goals') can be described as complex problem-solving situations characterized by the presence of multiple simultaneous goals.

Modern societies face an increasing incidence of various complex problems. In other words, the defining characteristics of our complex problems are a large number of variables (complexity) that interact in a nonlinear fashion (connectivity), changing over time (dynamic and time-dependent), and to achieve multiple goals (polytely).
