Dated video with Khalid explaining the trend in Digital for Business. Quote research in Forbes magazine, how most companies have not seen digital as central to their business model, so as such place themselves at high risk when considering what is taking place in the market place. https://youtu.be/367J-Hm1NG8

London School of Economics/RSA’s joint Reinventing Work Networking Event – October 2017

Those in attendance, were either Fellows of the Royal Society of the Arts or soon to be, all of whom were evidently from the round of introductions, high achievers with practical experience of implementing change towards the new panacea of nurturing organisations to mitigate the corporate ills of self interest, power, inefficiencies in structural hierarchy, processes, communication, blurred lines of accountability, autonomy, role and boundary.

Self Management, and Distributed Leadership are some of the concepts that are the thread of the RSA’s reinventing work network; thinking outside the box to reconcile organisational development, using Fredric Laloux’s Opus Magnum, Reinventing Organisations as the standard bearer for reshaping the organisations of tomorrow. ( See a summary Frederic Laloux thinking in the video below)

Imagine a new model of thinking that spans management practice, community empowerment and the conceptof an authentic voice, that facilitates the optimisation of clear and creative thinking through a coherent methodology and practice framework. With traditional organisational structures having to recognise the challenge of globalisation, and the need to innovate to sustain themselves or die; digital transformation has increasingly become the priority focus as most sectors are at the mercy of technological disruption via new software development such as the latest significant advances in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Machine Learning, 3D Printing. If you are one of those companies not looking at digital transformation, this means that your enterprise is behind the curve and at risk.

Why Software is Eating The World? An essay written 6 years ago by Marc Andreessen stated that “every company needs to become a software company”. Co-author of Mosaic the first widely used browser and co-founder of Netscape the pioneer internet browser that the first generation of internet users used even before Internet Explorer ever saw the light of day; (the days way before Chrome, Firefox and Safari) Andreessen, now of Andreessen Horowitz a mega successful Venture Capitalist from Silicon Valley, in his seminal Wall Street Journal article was bringing attention to the fact that business’s leveraging internet technology through the development of software were already the biggest companies in the world and there were more on their way. Changing the face of the way business was being done and would be done forever more.

https://youtu.be/26ComR0HZQE Professor Joanna Mair from Stanford University outlines that whilst economists look at value and sociologists focus on values, social enterprise lies somewhere in between and have been in existence ever since. Her time graph which highlights published articles using  specifically the term “social entrepreneur” over time uncovers how the growth curve post 1990’s are by practitioners where as most of the previous century spikes were from academia.

Having been invited to take part a training course in the Netherlands entitled “talent development as a positive approach towards capacity building for youth (at risk) in order to prevent youth unemployment” in Spring of 2014; part of the application process was to describe my own experience in delivering programs to young people.

I have always thought carefully about the interventions I make in different forums. In the early years it was always based on heartfelt emotion, and the truth of the matter. Working within an organisational context, it becomes a little bit more sensitive to the surroundings and those in front of you. I am and have been guilty of trying to overload the discourse, with sometimes a little bit too much information. Recently hearing about the…

Community Development, Non profits and Voluntary Sector organisations are beset with that obvious challenge to their sustainability, “Where’s the money coming from?” Providing the much needed services that these organisations are set up to deliver are always dependent on the individuals involved and the connections and track record they have. Many are often beguiled into thinking these types of organisations are not businesses, when they are. They are incorporated as businesses, operate as legal entities,…
