Harold Jarche

Complexity is the new normal. We are so interconnected today that many cannot imagine otherwise. Almost every person is connected to worldwide communication networks.

Navigating From the Industrial Age to the Contextual Age

John Hagel

In the Industrial Age, scalable efficiency drove value creation. The bargain of the Industrial Age was that, if consumers wanted affordable products and services, we would have to settle for standardized products and services – one size fits all. It’s the reason we described the previous era as the Industrial Age, rather than the Machine Age.

Anticipating the Future of the IT Industry

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

How can we best anticipate the future of a complex, fast changing industry like IT? What can we learn from the IT industry’s 60-year history that might help us better prepare for whatever lies ahead? A major way of anticipating the future of any economic or social entity, - be it a company, industry, university, government agency or city, - is to explore and learn from its history.

How the personal data extraction industry ends

Doc Searls

The main takeaway for me, to both Elizabeth’s piece and Jon’s book, is making clear that Google and Facebook are at the heart of today’s personal data extraction industry, and that this industry defines (as well as supports) much of our lives online. Even the biggest personal data extraction companies are also not utilities on the scale or even the importance of power and water distribution (which we need to live), or the extraction industries behind either.

Compliance of an industry

Harold Jarche

Mandated training is a standard response by industry regulators when dealing with human performance issues. The training industry (internal or external) then develops the training and as more compliance training gets loaded onto organizations we have an excellent excuse to buy some technology systems to manage it. That mindset also permeates the training industry. So why doesn’t the industry raise a fuss over wasteful and ineffective training?

Lessons from a Very Mobile Industry

Economic structural change is NOT industry compositional change
