THE DARK SIDE OF BEST PRACTICES by Michael Wade via @ariegoldshlager

How can you possibly argue with best practices? These practices are, more often than not, superior to your own. Indeed, best practices embody how the best firms within an industry conduct business.

The Power of Synthesis and the Problem with Experts by Greg Sattel

How much do we need specialized experts for the information economy?

The Rotman Design Challenge: A Review by Helen Walters

In recent years, calls for a more creative or innovative approach to, well, pretty much everything but our financial instruments, have become more pointed.

Insultants not Consultants: Balancing Mastery and Questioning by Jorge Barba

In the 21st century, the UK’s economic competitiveness and social wellbeing will increasingly depend on our ability to innovate. A significant part of the innovation process revolves around ‘creativity’ – the ability to generate new ideas, or to restructure and redeploy old ones.

 

When Customer Rebellion Becomes Open Revolution by Umair Haque

Art and design in service of our world by John Maeda

I’m on a video call with the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Councils that links together experts across the world in response to global challenges. The topic of our call is centering around the situation in Japan.
