We post this manifesto in what feels like a moment of calm before the storm. It is February 2012, just a few weeks into a year rich with social, political, and spiritual significance. In the US, of course, it's an election year, with all the media-induced madness this will spawn. According to the Chinese calendar, it's the Year of the Dragon, a symbol of dynamism and power. In the ancient Mayan calendar . . . well, we know about that.
L'Art Intégral fait irruption dans la grisaille parisienne,, vendredi prochain 17 février 2012, pour toute la journée,à l'Université Intégrale. Mais qu'est-ce que l'Art Intégral ? En voici une certaine vision, subjective bien sûr...
On a recent visit to San Francisco I met up with Brian Burt CEO of Maestro Conference – an innovative conference call and remote education platform. It was also the first project I worked on as Product Manager where I applied Agile. We made a lot of mistakes back then but managed to successfully launch a product in very trying economic times. More importantly we learned how to work together.
Brian became so enamored of Agile that he has now adopted a corporate governance system called Holacracy which is based in part on Agile. In this short video Brian walks me through his system. Enjoy.
I believe it is time to shift our community’s focus from 'map' to 'movement.' But is there really an Integral Movement? What defines a movement? Can the so-called Integral Movement become a real movement?
Ken Wilber is calling for our integral leadership. Here's why he believes it's essential for our world now more than ever...
The time seems ripe for change. Do you feel it too? Perhaps it's the 2012 phenomenon. But whatever it is, the signs are all around us:
Last year's Arab Spring (and the continuing tumultuous transformation in that region)The Occupy Movement that started in the U.S. and has spread worldwide with its conflicting perspectives and the growing number of painful clashesThe current U.S. presidential election cycle that highlights the alarming culture wars in this country and abroadAn increasing need many of us feel in our own personal and professional lives to "Occupy" in some way—to take a stand for what we believe in, what we care about, and what we know is possible
For many of us, the need is obvious and the urgency is palpable. We intuit that our integral understanding affords a uniquely helpful perspective on the host of problems that our loved ones, communities, and organizations face.
Yet we often hesitate.
We ask ourselves, "How can I actually make a difference? How do I put my integral perspective into practice in a way that actually influences change?"
To explore the answers to these crucial questions, Integral Life and Integral Leadership Collaborative have partnered to offer a series of talks culminating in an international integral community conference call later this month.

The Time Has Come for Integral Leadership (Ken Wilber)

TED Talks Have we used up all our resources? Have we filled up all the livable space on Earth? Paul Gilding suggests we have, and the possibility of devastating consequences, in a talk that's equal parts terrifying and, oddly, hopeful.
Author Dave Logan talks to Ken Wilber about the five levels of our professional tribes, offering a glimpse into the values and strategies of the world's most effective leaders—and some of the ways you can become one of them.
A few days ago I discovered an article in the New York Times about "Open Science" that strongly resonated with me. It covers a topic that I have been chewing on for some time: the potential for scholars and specialists of all sorts to leverage the power of the Internet to revolutionize the way knowledge is created, accessed and legitimized. Then a question came with it: why isn't the integral community more active on the open web(1)?
Corey DeVos from Integral Life says to Integral Chicks that before Integral Naked (2006), the Integral community had trouble finding itself and interacting with each other, whereas today the problem has changed: dialogue happens mostly within the community and we need more dialogue with the exterior. We can find Integral content online—mostly "pop integral" I would say—but in many ways the Integral discourse is de facto closed due to obstacles like monthly fees and premium memberships. Technically it's on the web, but not openly so. As to the scholarly discourse(2) in particular, it seems almost absent(3). And this is the discourse I'm interested in for this post.
I just finished a book: The Lean Startup. It's a model for building successful new products/startups extremely efficiently, developed by startup entrepreneur Eric Reis. No genius needed, just a method. I have to say I'm impressed: the theory and the case studies are very convincing.
Fairly quickly into the book, I started to draw mental connections with another lean model: Holacracy. No surprise here, both share a similar Agile inspiration. They both emphasize a "dynamic steering" management style based on direct feedback from reality, as opposed to grand strategies based on assumptions.
How about putting Lean Startup and Holacracy side by side to see how they compare? That's the fun exercise this post is about.
-Let's start with a quick and dirty overview of each model,
-Then I'll suggest a way Holacracy and Lean Startup fit together
-Then I'll give a table comparing characteristics of each model
