STRATEGIC agility in the ever-changing world

"When we attribute behaviour to personality, we lose sight of how the structure of the system shaped our choices."

John D. Sterman, MIT, Influencing structures and beliefs

Offer guidance on

  • Engaging people, by bringing together their rational and their intuitive thinking, giving them a new experience to influence their mindset,
  • Growing communities, by stimulating and fostering discussions around the thinking models, encouraging feedback, creativity, empathy, transparency and truthfulness,
  • Nurturing profound change, and
  • bootstrapping the change by triggering new behaviours.


“...if you want to get people to coordinate or change their behaviour, you have to first and foremost deal with the existing web of relationships, rather than treat people as isolated individuals.”

Alex Pentland, Social Physics: How good ideas spread

Manage the delay!

"Don't push change, remove the factors limiting growth."

Peter Senge, the fifth discipline: The art and practice of the learning organization

The delay between acting and observing the results creates tensions (e.g. polarity, discouragement, disorder and time pressure).

The common thinking model causes blindness to the existence of this delay.

Every unresolved tension hinders building a shared understanding, thus becoming a seed of future failure.

Create a network for change

Successful change is based on a healthy network of peers that influence each other in a positive way.

Genuine Engagement of people can be measured as a network effect; vitality and retention.

Bootstrapping, who moves first?

Peers trigger new behaviours of peers. Peers can challenge , offer experience, give reasons and arguments that sometimes trigger new intuitions.

In order to develop new intuitions one needs to experience and engage in new thinking. Initially Simulation, sharing experiences and observing action can trigger new behaviours. These are catalysts solving the bootstrapping problem; 'who moves first?'.

"Intuitions come first, strategic reasoning second"

Jonathan Haidt, the righteous mind
