"We all know that crystal clear feeling that comes after a spell of unplugged time, especially if that time is spent outdoors.  For over 20 years as a professional investor, I've relished these small windows of escape, and my work has benefitted from the clarity that they bring.  More recently I've wondered, what if that clarity could last longer than my sunburn does?  What if instead of being a place to escape, nature could become my personal and professional mentor?"

Management Innovation According to Nature’s Genius

Management Innovation According to Nature’s Genius | Biomimicry | Scoop.it

"The current industry model is broken. Our economy is built on a ‘take make waste’ model that negatively impacts environmental and human systems and is not tenable in the long term. It is time to reinvent. We are gifted with an array of genius examples in nature – mechanism and ecosystems that have evolved over 3.8 billion years and provide a blueprint for products, processes, and system organization that can be truly effective toward a healthier, resilient future. We propose that companies mimic nature and reinvent themselves around the fundamental science of Biomimicry’s seven Life’s Principles. This is Management Innovation According to Nature’s Genius."

Whether it is working out the best strategy to deal with economic recessions or contemplating the best way to lay out a new town, problem solvers are looking to nature for deeper insights. And little wonder. Over millions of years nature has managed thousands of interrelated components and living systems that collaborate to deliver a sustainable and self-generating system that benefit all its members. It is the way that nature organises itself to deal with this complexity that is the key for a new way of thinking about our problems according to Tim Winton, the founder of Pattern Dynamics. “Biomimicry takes the tactics of nature to make actual physical mechanisms, but Pattern Dynamics uses the patterns in nature to develop high level principles that can be used to build generative strategies,” he said."
