The Power of Not Knowing

The Power of Not Knowing | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

When was the last time you said “I don’t know” in a business or organizational context, with the idea that your honesty would actually get you somewhere?

Stephen Dale's curator insight, March 20, 2015 7:42 AM

Memories can be considered dormant or stored expressions of energy. Thoughts can lead us in previously unimagined directions. So perhaps ‘knowledge’ is actually the power in not knowing, as well as realising that what we don’t know matters more than what we think we know. It is the practice of constantly becoming ‘knowledgeable’, or, developing the ability to send and receive knowledge, rather than having to own it or store it.

Great article which begins with a great question: How does what we know get in the way of what we don't know?

Design Thinking and Conscious Evolution | Rethinking Complexity

Design Thinking and Conscious Evolution | Rethinking Complexity | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Systems thinking is a holistic form of understanding, analysis, and problem solving. It's also a way to bring balanced, more impactful solutions to our businesses and social challenges. But what about design thinking?

Design thinking involves using design methodologies to address all of our important inquiries. There is an emerging notion of human-centered design brought into our consciouness by IDEO, the design firm in Palo Alto, California. In this form of design, we involve the recepients in the design process focused primarily on their needs. It sounds simple but most conventional design methodologies consider the needs of humans as an input, but not as the purpose of the design and much less involve them in the process.

Can we use design thinking to guide our evolution? Can design thinking help us build our global and sustainable future as a species. Is this type of thinking broad and deep enough that can tackle the biggest challenges that we have as civilization?

Mistakes Versus Experiments

One of the reasons that people try to avoid failing is that it seems like they’ve screwed up if they fail. This can certainly be the case, if your failure is major. But if you set up experiments to test ideas out, and you learn from them, then failing can be very productive.

Top 10 Project Management Trends for 2012

Top 10 Project Management Trends for 2012 | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

I found a great TOP 10 article that hits on us Agile PM’s as well as other PM trends foreseen for 2012 on ESI International’s PMO Blog. I am seeing all of this happen at my F100 clients, some moreso than others. The “Mixing of Agile with Traditional methods” is very very big in their quest to deliver value – especially for projects outside the software development area. Enjoy !

Disruptive Thinkers: Developing a Disruptive Mindset

Before you can be Disruptive, you must embrace a Disruptive mindset. This is one of those things that takes concerted effort and time. It also is not a widespread trait in general society. Yet even the most iconoclast of us can think in this manner if we truly want to.
