Patrick Verdonk's insight:

Interesting organizational control perspective on the adaptive cycle. With better feedback loops, we are able to better realize the upsides and minimize the time spend in the downsides. So, the better we get on the feedback loops, the faster the Adaptive Cycle will run. Technology -I believe- is an important factor in installing robust feedback loops. Technology is ever evolving, allowing ever more robust feedback loops, and thus an ever increasing speed through the adaptive cycles (ever increasing speed of change...).

 

Looking forward to the follow-up articles...

Patrick Verdonk's insight:
Inspired by business strategist Knut Haanaes' talk "Two reasons companies fail — and how to avoid them" at TED@BCG London. The perspectives on how much innovation is needed stopped at 10 years. I don’t think that is long enough, because it doesn’t match the average company life time -yet-. It left me wondering what happens after 10 years?

Today's business is about opening one’s mind to the possibilities and potential to do things differently, to experiment and learn, to apply learning to change, to show that today’s business can be run in highly diverse ways and that not all of those ways have crystallized – that they will probably never crystallize… Business life is no longer what we were used to back in the 90s!
