Charting culture

This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes. A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble

.The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals. The visualization was created by Maximilian Schich (University of Texas at Dallas) and Mauro Martino (IBM).

The End of ‘Genius’

The End of ‘Genius’ | Culture Change | Scoop.it
The idea of the solitary creator is a myth that has outlived its usefulness.
Liz Rykert's insight:

Thanks June Holley for sharing this NYTimes article on the essence of the creative process. It is by author Joshua Wolf Shenk based on his forthcoming book The Powers of Two http://www.shenk.net/powersoftwo/


Fav Quote: "At its heart, the creative process itself is about a push and pull between two entities, two cultures or traditions, or two people, or even a single person and the voice inside her head. Indeed, thinking itself is a kind of download of dialogue between ourselves and others. And when we listen to creative people describe breakthrough moments that occur when they are alone, they often mention the sensation of having a conversation in their own minds."

Thanks June Holley for this Scoop! It looks like a great summary of the emerging importance of culture in the workplace, how it is generated and is shaped or changed over time. Nice set of rules. One thing that seems missing is any ref to Ed Schein and his book Organizational Leadership and Culture ??

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership | Culture Change | Scoop.it

Social technologies with their inherent democratic, anti-hierarchical quality easily transcend internal and external boundaries, suddenly creating a powerful thrust for horizontal collaboration and participation. They give each and every member of an organization a creative voice and enable real-time virtual connectivity in a way we have never seen before. This makes them a great catalyst for the organizational principles that are required by the new leadership context of the 21st century.

Liz Rykert, check this out! Panarchy.

Eli Levine's curator insight, May 25, 10:25 AM

An interesting article on how to bring about effective change.  I've always said, it's about changing the logic and perspective of people first.  This then influences culture, action, function and operation, which can then lead to appropriate personnel changes (if necessary) followed by changes in the architecture of the system stemming FROM the cultural and psychological changes.

 

Trouble is, I'm not sure how I can do this from where I am or with how I am at present.  I need greater access to the right people who are already in the system and I need to have enough bona fides and gravitas to be listened to seriously.

 

We'll see if I'll be able to complete my mission.

 

Think about it.

Foundations need to adopt a more emergent approach to strategic philanthropy.
Liz Rykert's insight:

Quote that got my attention:


"We have now come to the conclusion that if funders are to make greater progress in meeting society’s urgent challenges, they must move beyond today’s rigid and predictive model of strategy to a more nuanced model of emergent strategy that better aligns with the complex nature of social progress."

Liz Rykert's insight:

Nice piece in the NYTimes - focusing on strategies needed to solve things when a change in behaviour is needed to make the shift.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, June 29, 3:02 AM

"...people are the culture..." yeahhh, that's why it takes time to change it if you want to change the ingrained one (modify it slowly, gradually...)  If to change people individually is difficult (and goes only with their consent and highly charged motivation....), consequently to change culture is even more difficult because the system effect... and your best, most brilliant strategy will fail if it does not take into account the culture and if necessary, the change of it... the pure, aseptic oarding desk blueprints will never take the real "3D" form, they are umrealizable because of this....
