“If you don’t understand people, you don’t understand business.”

- Simon Sinek

___________ 

Search “technology” or “innovation” or “computer” and “founded/er, ” and you’ll come up with lists of people who have launched tech companies. You might find lists dedicated to women, all non-U.S. born innovators, or non-tech people who started companies. You aren’t going to find a single story of an organization created, funded, launched, and nurtured by a computer. That’s because, for all the things that technology can do for us, it can not replicate the value and power of human judgment, instinct, or empathy that are so vital to the health of our workforce, our organizations, and our global marketplace.

Terms like globalized, interconnected, and hyper-empowered are so trumpeted across the infinite 24-hour news hour cycle and media barrage that they have become part of the din – rather than the call to action that they should compel. But, at their core, what has spawned from them?

 

Hyper-connectivity, globalization, and massive volumes of information that are available (and accessible) have created and connected markets, people, and ideas. This growing network has generated incredible opportunities for people, organizations, and nations to collaborate and extend their influence. But it also has generated all kinds of new vulnerabilities. And only a small minority of our thought leaders and influencers is actively considering how to balance the two.

For entities striving to be Future Proof®, it is fundamental. The process of organizational learning typically takes one of two forms – individuals and groups either learn from their experiences or they learn from the collective.
