Connecting with the new thinking that has happened, is happening today and will happen in the future is required because since the beginning of the industrial revolution thinking and technologies exist that make the thinking that we inherited obsolete. Thinking has matched what's happening but no longer - it is falling further and further behind because current thinking is no match for the emergent technologies, which includes the 'technology of language'.
New organisation is required if we are to be able to deal with specific problems in time. The application of technology needs to be handled by teams rather than by the whole organisation. This new hybrid organisational approach is about creating a future of new possibilities and not trying to fix the problems of the past.
We have to create the conditions that support The Natural Law of People so that work becomes a worthwhile experience for all.
Every new technology has a new language to match it. There is the technology that most people think of and the technology of language itself. We need to understand the emergent evolution of technology.
New technology on its own is useless until it serving human intelligence or performance.
Technology without purpose solves problems that don’t exist.
Book an in-depth business review call to understand how identifying and changing the right conditions in your organisation could rapidly improve performance, increase RoIC and improve the experience of work for all.
"“If the nature of the work is properly appreciated and applied, it will stand in the same relation to the higher faculties as food is to the physical body. It nourishes and enlivens the higher being and urges one to produce the best one is capable of. … It furnishes an excellent background for (one) to display one’s values and develop one’s personality.”"
In every case, a 'champion' took a stand and created a small team made up of different levels and knowledge bases that performed what could not be accomplished without strong cooperation.
The right time and the only time for Organisation Design 2.0 is when a leader emerges and decides to take a stand for a future that does not yet exist. We can help you bring the possible future into existence.
The second book of the series 'Stories from the Edge' is now available. It looks deeply into the role of management and identifies how the function of management needs to change for the business conditions today.
Management is a criminally underused resource. When the potential of the function of management is completely released, outcomes beyond your grandest dreams will be realised.
If you want to achieve extraordinary results, the first place to start is organisation design.
The first book in the series, Stories from the Edge, was published in 2022 and has had brilliant reviews.

"“The Buddhist point of view takes the function of work to be at least threefold: to give one a chance to utilize and develop one’s faculties; to enable one to overcome one’s own ego-centeredness by joining with other people in a common task, and to bring forth the goods and services needed for a becoming existence. …. To organize work in such a manner that it becomes meaningless, boring, stultifying, or nerve-wracking for the worker would be little short of criminal; it would indicate a greater concern with goods than with people …”"
Stories From The Edge is the name of our book series and the name of our community.
Both Mike and I have read many many books and no matter how good or informative they were they would always have questions. That is probably the same for all book lovers.
Our community, Stories From The Edge is our way of providing a direct connection with us and an opportunity to learn and develop together. The book is the starting point, the community is were the magic happens, where new ideas emerge and where you the members can share and learn together.
We are not proposing a revolution in organisations and we are recommending a seismic shift in how we design our organisations for the future. There is no single answer. What we propose is a framework of guiding principles and structures that will enable all types of organisations to create their unique organisation design for their unique vision of the future that does not yet exist.
Ultimately we have a simple mission:
To Make Work A Worthwhile Experience For All!
