You get a lot of lame excuses in social media exchanges and not all of them are as blatant as the classic the dog ate my homework. Now I do understand this, social media is a very public forum and few want to simply say something along the lines of OK I was wrong […]
A week ago I put up what I thought would be a provocative post on LinkedIn on the subject of psychometric tests. It’s a subject I have addressed before. Once with a slight tongue-in-cheek suggestion that Tom Lehrer’s Poisoning Pigeons in the Park provided a role model in how to treat the cult end […]
Its been just over a week since I wrote my post on meta-muggleism, the title implying there is a lot less magic to Metamodernism than some of those appropriating the concept of metamodernity from aesthetics think there is. My original appearance on the Stoa excited some controversy and I ended up being hosted on a virtual […]
I’ve been to one of my favourite cities for most of the week, namely Copenhagen. I spent a lot of time there in IBM days thanks to the support of Hanna (I think I have the name right but its 25 years ago and I have lost touch with so if you are reading this […]
Tim Logan referenced our work in his recent post on Linkedin: Mining for the meaning beneath the jargon. Beth and I also had the privilege of working with him and Olli-Pekka Heinonen from the International Baccalaureate at the recent Festival of Hope. That in turn leads to a wider education theme this year with the Retreat […]
Before I return to my decision series I wanted to get a little bit of polemic off my chest. One of the most frequently misused statements on social media is the phrase “Research shows” and it rarely if ever comes with any reference to said research. I challenge the authors from time to time and […]
I’ve been expressing some irritation on social media over the last week or so with idealised approaches to getting agreement to how things should be with little attention to the journey. Also the linked guilt tripping that goes with a failure to buy in to the latest collection of platitudes. Discovering that for just over […]
My mother had a love for the work of Tom Lehrer so from a young age I grew up listing to his songs. To this day key phrases from his songs come to mind, especially when meeting some of the manipulative stupidities that attempt to pass themselves off as new methods and approaches to organisational […]
To continue from my post of yesterday, and with less intent to be polemical, but definite intent to disturb, I want to advocate an approach to design and development within organisations that is based on creating an ecology in which good things (some of which cannot be anticipated) are more rather than less likely to […]
