Management theory was hijacked in the 80s. We're still suffering the fallout

Management theory was hijacked in the 80s. We're still suffering the fallout | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it

We know what makes companies prosper in the long term. They manage themselves as whole systems, look after their people, use targets and incentives with extreme caution, keep pay differentials narrow (we really are in this together) and treat profits as the score rather than the game. And it's a given that in the long term companies can't thrive unless they have society's interests at heart along with their own.

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

San Francisco Times-Star™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 12:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

The Use of the Cynefin Model for Innovation | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it

(Paul Hobcraft) Firstly a very brief explanation of the Cynefin Model and why I find it highly valuable for innovation. Innovation has many characteristics of a complex adaptive system as I have crudely  attempted to explain here.

The three primary states within the Cynefin framework are Ordered Systems (including Obvious and Complicated), Complexity and Chaos.

Order is split into two, as this handles a key difference in human knowledge between those states, where the cause and effect relationship is obvious and those where it requires greater analysis or expertise.

Organizations everywhere are struggling to keep up with the accelerating pace of change - let alone get ahead of it.

Social Technology and the Changing Context of Leadership | Building Innovation Capital | 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.

And, thus, conservatism becomes even LESS favored as a governing ideology and leadership trait.

 

Society is always on the move and our knowledge of the world is in constant flux.  It's like a treadmill that never stops and may change pace at a moment's notice.  If you keep doing the same thing or if you just try to stop, you're going to trip, fall flat on your face, and potentially take the whole of society with you.

 

The brain type of a conservative, regardless of which political party they may affiliate with, is unfit for leadership and was unfit for leadership in any century or millennium.  They push the same buttons, over and over and over again, without any learning, any observation of the consequences of their actions, and without any adaptation for when the function of those buttons change.  It is a ridiculous brain type, truly, no matter how functional or put together they may be individually and collectively.  And they're going to get us all killed if we allow them to remain in positions of power, consequence, and authority.

 

Think about it.

Why Germany Dominates the U.S. in Innovation

Three factors that push the country ahead.

Reading the headlines, you might think that the most urgent question about national success in innovation and growth is whether the U.S. or China should get the gold medal. The truth is: Germany wins hands down.

Germany does a better job on innovation in areas as diverse as sustainable energy systems, molecular biotech, lasers, and experimental software engineering. Indeed, as part of an effort to learn from Germany about effective innovation, U.S. states have encouraged the Fraunhofer Society, a German applied-science think tank, to set up no fewer than seven institutes in America.

True, Americans do well at inventing. The U.S. has the world’s most sophisticated system of financing radical ideas, and the results have been impressive, from Google to Facebook to Twitter. But the fairy tale that the U.S. is better at radical innovation than other countries has been shown in repeated studies to be untrue. Germany is just as good as the U.S. in the most radical technologies.
