How We Think
Tools for thinking well together when creating systems.
Defining Strategic Thinking
The value of every decision we make depends on the context in which we make it. Frodo’s journey to destroy the ring is meaningful inside the context of Middle Earth. Otherwise, he’s a short, hairy guy with apocalyptic hallucinations.
In this podcast episode, Diana and Andrei talk about partnering with people who are good at covering your blind spots, the process of structuring change and the essential quality called trust.
Why You Need Systemic Reasoning
We are conditioned to think linearly. Valuable things (like software) have emerged from linear thinking. The challenge is that linear thinking is also, assuredly, our biggest blocker when we are systems building.
The Hard Skills?
In the world of “digital transformation”, software is becoming systems. Unfortunately, we don’t think in systems. IT professionals need an emerging set of systems leadership skills.
