What will the product of the future be like? Part physical, part virtual...connectable... What else?

As we moved forward through history and as technology evolved, our products and devices got more complex. The supply chain and the number of people and skills involved in production kept growing – as did the number of supporting factors that needed to be in place for the device to work. It’s hard to see that this trend towards greater complexity and connectivity should not continue. Large supporting infrastructure An old-fashioned pencil doesn’t ...

Wonderful post that shows the evolutionary patterns for organizations as well as pointing to its main tenents.

The Future of Management Is Teal! 
~ by Frederic Laloux / Reinventing Organizations​

“The whole notion of competition makes no sense,” says de Blok. “If you share knowledge and information, things will change more quickly.”

Organizations are moving forward along an evolutionary spectrum, toward self-management, wholeness, and a deeper sense of purpose.

Postmodernity brought us another world view. The Green stage stresses cooperation over competition and strives for equality, solidarity, and tolerance. Historically, this perspective inspired the fights for the abolition of slavery, and for gender equality, and today it helps combat racism, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination. Green organizations, which include many nonprofits as well as companies such as Southwest Airlines, Starbucks, and the Container Store, consider social responsibility the core of their mission. They serve not just shareholders but all stakeholders, knowing that this often results in higher costs in the short term, but better returns in the end.

Like previous leaps to new stages of management, the new model comes with a number of important breakthroughs:

• Self-management. Teal organizations operate effectively, even at a large scale, with a system based on peer relationships. They set up structures and practices in which people have high autonomy in their domain, and are accountable for coordinating with others. Power and control are deeply embedded throughout the organizations, no longer tied to the specific positions of a few top leaders.

• Wholeness. Whereas Orange and Green organizations encourage people to show only their narrow “professional” selves, Teal organizations invite people to reclaim their inner wholeness. They create an environment wherein people feel free to fully express themselves, bringing unprecedented levels of energy, passion, and creativity to work.

• Evolutionary purpose. Teal organizations base their strategies on what they sense the world is asking from them. Agile practices that sense and respond replace the machinery of plans, budgets, targets, and incentives. Paradoxically, by focusing less on the bottom line and shareholder value, they generate financial results that outpace those of competitors.

Becoming a Teal Organization

Every stage of organizational evolution is more mature and effective than the previous stage, because of the inherent attitude toward power. A Red leader asks, How can I use my power to dominate? An Amber leader asks, How can I use it to enforce the status quo? An Orange leader asks, How can we win? A Green leader asks, How can we empower more people? A Teal leader asks, How can everyone most powerfully pursue a purpose that transcends us all?
Organizations are ready for their next evolutionary step: a step toward self-management, wholeness, and a new sense of purpose.

General Discussion  - 
Network (CERN) are international collaborative networks of researchers who share an interest in theorizing, discussing, representing and ultimately enacting new visions of economy. By making multiple forms of economic life viable options for action, these diverse, engaged scholarly and activist efforts aim to open the economy to ethical debate and provide a space within which to explore different economic practices and pathways.

These projects grew out of J.K. Gibson-Graham’s feminist critique of political economy that focused upon the limiting effects of representing economies as dominantly capitalist. Central to the project is the idea that economies are always diverse and always in the process of becoming. CERN and CEC developed as ways of connecting and coordinating the work of researchers and activists who document and theorize the multiple ways in which people are making economies of difference and in the process realizing their interdependence with others.”

The CEC website hosts a range of resources that will be of interest to researchers and educators on the Commons and Social Economy.

"The money system operates very much like a pyramid scheme, with all its attendant social dislocation and the constant, nagging feeling that one is constantly being ripped off. ... It is time, past time, to adopt a new mythology and a different model of giving and receiving... the sacred power of the circle"

Imagine a shift away from the current centralised city model to a distributive model that focuses on local production, together with consumption in that same place. Rather than a capital city with sprawling suburbs and outlying districts, we would imagine our cities as a connected network of local communities with no special centre of greater advantage. 

Great post on how to design cities based upon small local communities fully sustainable and fully thriving.  Circular Economy at its best!
In 1930, at the onset of the Great Depression, the economist John Maynard Keynes imagined the distant future in his essay, “Economic Possibilities for Our Grandchildren”. Keynes imagined that by 2030 the standard of living would be so high that people would be liberated from want and that we, his grandchildren, would work no more than fifteen hours a week. He believed that this liberation would be driven partly by technology—that technology would free us from work.
Keynes also suggested that the economic pessimism of the time was not justified and that: “We are suffering, not from the rheumatics of old age, but from the growing-pains of over-rapid changes, from the painfulness of readjustment between one economic period and another.”
In this article I discuss this readjustment—what others have called The Great Transition—from a linear to a circular economy and from a centralised to a distributive city structure.

The experience for me was like visiting a jail of amazing beings desperate of their situation. Yes there are incredible snakes and turtles and reptiles. That makes it worse. Really constrained spaces for each. I got out of there feeling very sad that humans accept animal suffering with such ease.

The food is fabulous. Everything we tried was great. I would ask for mild spicy next time as medium is hot. The service is awesome. We didn't give 5 stars because the place needs decor. Not cozy.
