Les réseaux intégrées ont deux avantages principaux. Tout d’abord, les partenaires au sein de l’alliance sont plus susceptibles de tenir leurs promesses. Si l’information circule librement entre les partenaires interconnectés, la façon dont une entreprise considère un partenaire est plus visible pour les autres partenaires à qui les deux entreprises sont connectées. De ce fait, si l’une des entreprises escroque un partenaire, d’autres le remarqueront et ne collaboreront plus avec l’entreprise en question.
Commute is more of a question than an answer: What if you could redesign the NYC subway system? Using handmade wooden dowels to depict train stations, users weave brightly colored ropes (subway lines) through the dowels and around the 5 wooden boroughs of New York to create their own unique subway map.
Trust, shared values, and a deep understanding of and commitment to a purpose-inspired mission are the three fundamental enablers of the self-governing behaviors that produce competitive advantage and superior performance.
The Governance, Culture, and Leadership Framework creates a foundation for disciplined analysis of the system of individual and collective behaviors that drives an organization forward. These behaviors constitute a critical operating system in an organization — call it the Human Operating System—that can be measured and acted upon as a deliberate strategy.
To reach the peak of a sustainable system of governance, culture, and leadership, we are going to have to tear down what traps us where we are (the ‘how much’ functional and hierarchical command and control mindsets and structures of the 19th and 20th centuries) and build toward the HOW mindset and frameworks of Self-Governance. To do so, we must be willing to move beyond our basic understanding of what worked in the past (B) and accept some uncertainty and confusion (C) as we struggle to gain a deeper understanding of what it will take to achieve long-term success in the new reality of the 21st Century (A).
Semantic Culturomics [is] a paradigm that uses semantic knowledge bases in order to give meaning to textual corpora such as news and social media. This idea is not without challenges, because it requires the link between textual corpora and semantic knowledge, as well as the ability to mine a hybrid data model for trends and logical rules. […] Semantics turns the texts into rich and deep sources of knowledge, exposing nuances that today’s analyses are still blind to. This would be of great use not just for historians and linguists, but also for journalists, sociologists, public opinion analysts, and political scientists.
Économie circulaire : les nouveaux “business models”
Les industriels vont devoir adopter de nouveaux business models, des business models qui gèrent les ressources en boucle grâce à la réutilisation, à la réparation, à la refabrication ou au recyclage : les business models de l’économie circulaire.
Complexity is one of the hallmark characteristics of systems innovation and transition challenges. Taking the role of complexity into account means that it the underlying content. It is not hard to imagine how some of the more problematic aspects of complexity might be visualized in a simple, accessible manner (see Figure). For instance, non-linear shifts in complex systems can be easily visualized by a sharp change in the slope of a curve. Robustness is often visualized with the ‘ball-in-a-cup’ metaphor; the deeper the cup, the lower the chances of the ball leaping out of the cup, and the more robust the system. Visualization can be used to improve the extent to which images are reflective of the underlying system’s complexity. Specific visualizations are chosen for their reflective accuracy, not their mobilizing power. The ball-in-the-cup-metaphor thus can be used to visualize a system’s robustness. The assumptions about systemic complexity that are inherent to an action experiment can be explored by using such visualizations. Collaboratively visualizing the future can thus be used to establish a more thorough understanding of the systems involved. This way, an experiment can escape false assumptions inherent to simple images.
