Complexity – What’s new?

Complexity – What’s new? | Strategic & Systemic thinking and tools | Scoop.it

The existence of complexity in human systems is not new; we have simply become more conscious of it. We now know that we can distinguish complex systems from ordered systems and engage purposefully and productively with complexity.

The Business Model Gallery is a growing database of curated business models canvases gathered from a diverse set of companies operating in different sectors.


For each company you can analyze its updated "business canvas" in which you can see at a glance the key value propositions, its partners, revenue streams and all of the other key business building blocks.


Business models can be easily searched, filtered and compared across specific building blocks you are interested in. 


Coming up are also a PDF and PowerPoint export option as well as a dedicated iPad app.


A free trial is available and pro plans start at $9/month and go up all the way to $29/mo according to the number of features you want to use.


My comment: The Business Model Gallery offers a truly excellent gallery of valuable business models which can be extremely useful for anyone studying, researching or working on creating a successful new company.


Furthermore this is a great living example of how, curated collections of best of breed examples, are going to have a go as very useful business services in the coming months and years.

I've been using business model tool for years now. This gallery is truly amazing and I believe will be very useful for business architects and managers as they define their own corporate strategy because they will be able to easily compare with what others are doing.

Socrates As Management Consultant? Why Executives Are Embracing Philosophy

Socrates As Management Consultant? Why Executives Are Embracing Philosophy | Strategic & Systemic thinking and tools | Scoop.it

Imagine yourself in the office of a senior executive of a big company, such as Nestlé or UBS. But instead of typing on his computer’s keyboard, the man just sits still, chin resting on his fist and gazing as if lost in thought. Like a modern thinker, he invokes Aristotle and reflects on the meaning of authority.

 

This image of manager-as-philosopher might seem unrealistic. And yet, a new approach is spreading fast among top executives of Swiss companies, thanks to specialized university lectures and intellectual seminars of ancient and modern philosophy.

 

Surfing the wave of enthusiasm generated by several magazines and TV programs on the topic, more and more consultants have taken to quoting German philosopher Immanuel Kant and French philosopher Edgar Morin in their coaching sessions. The aftermath of the financial crisis has, to some extent, led to a return of moral values — and with it a search for meaning in the workplace and beyond.
