  • Very interesting and ambitious project. The big challenge is that many of the solutions to the big problems of this world are complex but not out-of-this-world, but their execution is what is out-of-this-world given the human side of things, involved with politics and interests. This could be part of the framework, but may need to involve some of the parties who have the execution in their hands, to get the full insights and support.

  • 7. TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY SOLUTIONS WILL HAVE TO EXTEND BEYOND BEYOND BEYOND DEVICES BORDERS BELIEFS TO SOLVE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY CHALLENGES
  • 8. SOCIAL ORGANIZATION, FROM THE CORPORATE SILO TO THE NUCLEAR FAMILY, IS A PROBLEM SOLVING STRATEGY. THE COMPLEX CHALLENGES FACING US AHEAD DEMAND WE WORK TOGETHER IN NEW WAYS.
  • 9. IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY TRIBES ARE A DANGEROUS MODEL FOR SOCIAL ORGANIZATION IF SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS ARE TO SOLVE REAL PROBLEMS.
  • 10. SLOGANS, NOT SOLUTIONS, SPREAD WITHIN TRIBES BECAUSE THE SURVIVAL OF THE GROUP IS VALUED OVER PROBLEM SOLVING.
  • 11. LONG-TERM SURVIVAL IS NO LONGER ASSURED AT THE COST OF ALL OTHERS.
  • 12. “ NO LONGER CAN ANY INDIVIDUAL NATION COLLAPSE. WORLD CIVILIZATION WILL DISINTEGRATE AS A WHOLE. COMPETITORS WHO EVOLVE AS PEERS COLLAPSE IN LIKE MANNER.” – Joseph A. Tainter
  • 13. THE RECENT HOUSING CRISIS DEMONSTRATED WITH CASCADING DESTRUCTION JUST HOW INTERCONNECTED AND INTERRELATED ALL OF INDUSTRY AND HUMANITY TRULY IS. TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY PROBLEMS WILL CONTINUE TO ELUDE TWENTIETH CENTURY SOLUTIONS.
  • 14. WHAT’S OUR MISSION? TO SOLVE THE WORLD’S MOST MASSIVELY COMPLEX CHALLENGES CHALLENGES THAT WILL REQUIRE COLLABORATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING AND A COMMON UNDERSTANDING OF HOW A MORE COMPLEX WORLD WORKS
  • 15. AND WHAT’S OUR STRATEGY? TO DEVELOP A NETWORK OF TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY PROBLEM SOLVERS ARMED WITH A COMMON UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO COMPREHEND, COMMUNICATE, AND CONFRONT COMPLEX CHALLENGES
  • 16. WHAT’S THE FIRST STEP? WE’RE DEVELOPING A GUIDEBOOK THAT WILL HELP YOU MAKE SENSE OF A MORE CONNECTED & COMPLEX WORLD TO ESTABLISH A COMMON UNDERSTANDING, INTRODUCE NEW TOOLS, AND SPREAD A FUNDAMENTALLY BROADER UNDERSTANDING OF THE CHALLENGES YOU FACE BOTH PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY
  • 17. AND WHAT THEN? USE YOUR NEWFOUND UNDERSTANDING AND OUR NETWORK OF PROBLEM SOLVERS TO MAKE THE WORLD AROUND YOU A BETTER PLACE ONCE WE SHARE A COMMON UNDERSTANDING AND THE ABILITY TO CONNECT, THERE’S NO LIMIT TO THE CHALLENGES WE CAN FACE TOGETHER
  • 18. WAIT A MINUTE. WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? IN THE FUTURE, UNDER HYPOTHETICAL AND SIMPLIFIED CIRCUMSTANCES
  • 19. WELL, WE’D NEED A CHALLENGE. LET’S SAY THAT WE NOTICE RETIREMENT INVESTING AMONG FAMILIES IS AT AN HISTORIC LOW
  • 20. FIRST, WE BEGIN BY MAPPING THE SYSTEM THIS IS CALLED A CAUSAL LOOP DIAGRAM, AND IT’S JUST ONE OF THE TOOLS THAT WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND A MORE CONNECTED & COMPLEX WORLD EXPECTATIONS DISCRETIONARY OF THE FUTURE INCOME RETIREMENT INVESTING HEALTH OF CLARITY THE FAMILY OF OPTIONS
  • 21. WE WANT TO CONNECT THE DOTS BETWEEN OUR OBJECTIVE AND ITS INFLUENCES AND HOW THESE ELEMENTS INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER TO FORM THE STRUCTURE AND BEHAVIOR OF THE OVERALL SYSTEM EXPECTATIONS DISCRETIONARY OF THE FUTURE INCOME RETIREMENT INVESTING O S S HEALTH OF CLARITY THE FAMILY S S OF OPTIONS ABOUT THE MAP: The lines show how one element may be related to another, and the letters ‘S’ and ‘O’ describe how they affect each other. S for Same, O for Opposite. For example, here we think as the health of the family increases, so will the likelihood of retirement investing. So these elements move in the same direction.
  • 22. UNDERSTANDING THE SYSTEM ALLOWS US TO IDENTIFY POINTS OF LEVERAGE TWO GOALS HERE: TO IDENTIFY MULTIPLE PRESSURE POINTS INSTEAD OF A SINGLE FOCUS, AND TO STUDY THE SYSTEMIC IMPLICATIONS OF ANY CHANGE WE INTRODUCE EXPECTATIONS DISCRETIONARY OF THE FUTURE INCOME RETIREMENT INVESTING O S S HEALTH OF CLARITY THE FAMILY S S OF OPTIONS
  • 23. NEXT, OUR NETWORK GENERATES A SUITE OF SOLUTIONS FOR EACH LEVERAGE POINT FROM THAT MOUNTAIN OF IDEAS, WE CULL UNTIL WE DESIGN AN ELEGANT PROGRAM OF SOLUTIONS TO ACHIEVE OUR OBJECTIVE RETIREMENT INVESTING O S S HEALTH OF CLARITY THE FAMILY S S OF OPTIONS
  • 24. AND THOSE SOLUTIONS THAT ARE ENACTED AND PROMOTED WILL BE BRANDED ALIKE SO THAT REGARDLESS OF AUDIENCE, GOVERNMENT/COMPANY/CITIZEN, IT’S UNDERSTOOD THAT ALL SHARE A COMMON GOAL AND EACH REQUIRE PARTICIPATION RETIREMENT INVESTING O S S HEALTH OF CLARITY THE FAMILY S S OF OPTIONS
  • 25. FINALLY, AS OUR SOLUTIONS ARE TESTED IN THE REAL WORLD, WE’LL MEASURE THEIR PERFORMANCE WE’LL DO OUR BEST TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE ENTIRE SYSTEM, TO CATCH ANY NEW TRENDS OR UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES EARLY IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT RETIREMENT INVESTING O S S HEALTH OF CLARITY THE FAMILY S S OF OPTIONS
  • 26. THIS IS HOW THE MOST MASSIVELY COMPLEX CHALLENGES OF THE FUTURE WILL BE SOLVED. THROUGH THE COLLABORATION OF PROFESSIONALS WHO SHARE A COMMON UNDERSTANDING, VISION, AND FUTURE.
  • 27. TODAY, WE’RE PREPARING THE FIRST STEP OF THIS VISION – A GUIDEBOOK* THAT WILL ... • GIVE YOU THE TOOLS AND KNOW-HOW TO FACE COMPLEX CHALLENGES IN YOUR OWN LIFE • GRANT YOU ACCESS TO A NETWORK OF PROBLEM SOLVERS TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE • ESTABLISH A COMMON UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN FUTURE MEMBERS SO THAT WE CAN SOLVE THE MOST MASSIVELY COMPLEX CHALLENGES TOGETHER * BOOK IS POTENTIALLY A QUAINT WORD OF YE OLDEN TIMES FOR WHAT’S IN MIND.
