The second of my coffee companions today helps organisations become more (little ‘a’) agile.
We talked about:
- how the Elizabeth Line’s changing of my mental model of London resulted in me being quite early
- the way in which new technologies often get introduced in remarkably sub-optimal ways and how it takes time for the world to catch up to them
- diesel steam engines
- how there are so many cognitive biases that it’s hard to know where to start
- the power of metaphors in explaining difficult concepts
- the danger of bad metaphors extending confusion
- flywheels, and how they might make transformational change harder
- partial metamorphosis (like a grasshopper) and total metamorphosis (like a butterfly) and how that maps to incremental continual improvement and fundamental transformation
- if organisations can transform without an existential threat?
- The Cynefin Framework
- Clocks and clouds
