The Third Wave of the Digital Economy - Promises and Challenges

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

“The next wave of digital innovation is coming. Countries can welcome it, prepare for it, and ride it to new heights of innovation and prosperity, or they can ignore the changing tide and miss the wave,” writes Robert Atkinson in The Task Ahead of Us.

Monocarpic banality

Dave Snowden

I’m starting to think that it is only a matter of time before I graduate from being merely curmudgeonly and cynical to full blown cantankerousness. Now these are commonly seen as negative words. Johnson defined a curmudgeon as “An avaricious churlish fellow; a miser, a niggard’.

“the strategic and purposeful production of ignorance”

Harold Jarche

“ You will not achieve an informed public simply by making sure that high quality content is publicly available and presuming that credibility is enough while you wait for people to come find it.

Surprise and safety

Clark Quinn

As I reflect further on the improved surprise model, I realize there’s one thing I missed. The model gives a motivation for learning, and an implication for design. But there’s one thing more in the model, and one more implication for design. And this has to do with safety.

beyond the solutions at hand

Harold Jarche

“There is a need to deal with the problem independent of the solutions at hand. We have a tendency to define the problem in terms of the solutions we already have. We fail most often not because we fail to solve the problem we face, but because we fail to face the right problem.

Competencies for L&D Processes?

Clark Quinn

We have competencies for people. Whether it’s ATD, LPI, IBSTPI, IPL, ISPI, or any other acronym, they’ve got definitions for what people should be able to do. And it made me wonder, should there be competencies for processes as well? That is, should your survey validation process, or your design process, also meet some minimum standards? How about design thinking ? There are things you do get certified in, including such piffle as MBTI and NLP.

movements and rackets

Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds. “Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” ?Eric Eric Hoffer, The Temper of Our Time.

Muddling along

Euen Semple

Over dinner last night someone used the phrase "muddling along" to express optimism about the future. It seems a particularly British, or to be more precise English, phrase and attitude. It goes with the landscape. It goes with the weather. It goes with the "nation of shopkeepers" image. I have often thought that one of the greatest strengths of The Church of England is it's non-dogmatic, village fete, muddling along attitude.

Celebrating sameness

Euen Semple

I used to worry about the homogenising effect of modern culture - the fact that every shopping malI the world over is selling the same brand dominated tat - and I would still bemoan the loss of diverse and fascinatingly different cultures. And yet.here I am, sitting on the harbour front in Hong Kong, watching Chinese girls wearing ripped jeans taking selfies, and wondering if this will make it harder to start wars with countries whose daughters also wear ripped jeans

workers are already mature

Harold Jarche

“Growth is not linear and it doesn’t happen in discrete phases marked by convenient external characteristics” — which is why maturity models are wrong — according to Christiaan Verwijs , specifically looking at agile models.

Wherever you go, there you are.

Euen Semple

It feels odd that I will set off for Hong Kong tomorrow. That I will think it sensible to sit in a metal tube, speeding through the air, thousands of feet off the ground. And then I will be there, somewhere else. Or will I? more than likely I will be stuck in my head - just like I am here. The odd truth of this always strikes me in the context of mountains. I spend a lot of my life wishing I was climbing a mountain. On the way up I wish it would end because it hurts so much.
