You mean I would actually have to think about and declare my intentions ... at least to myself?

An interesting aspirational article including an interview with John Smart.  I believe, as the article says (in part) that we'll use digital assistants for decision making long before we hand over decisions in their entirety.  This is the logical next layer on top of social networks, as we move from text (like this) to interactive complex systems Decision Intelligence models that allow us to build, visualize, track, and keep our models up-to-date.

I hadn't realized this!  Bad decisions often come from unintended consequences, and most of those can be seen as arising from a lack of ability to see the entire system.  Ergo: solve them through better systems thinking.


We seem to be suffering from an epidemic of hindsight, judging the situation by the data, not the system.  It's like trying to predict where the elephant will walk based on  her footprints (or maybe something else she leaves behind) rather than actually understanding elephants themselves.


Many of the bad decisions in this articlecan be seen a consequence of this lack of deep systems knowledge / systems navigational ability: the firing of Steve Jobs, Bank of America's purchase of Countrywide Financial, Fed moves that led to the Great Depression, and many more.


Wow.  Hadn't realized.  Let's fix this together, OK, friends???!!

Using Systems Thinking methodologies to tackle cultural issues is gold! Systems Thinking is highly suited for use when working through complex and messy issues. What better way to commence a transformational program to change cultural norms using these techniques. Good article.
