  • Hello 2000…..………2002…………..2004……………..2006……..…..2007…… 2008.. I am an organisations and communities consultant and ‘blended facilitator’. In other words, I help groups of people do the things that they want and/or need to do.
  • Hello
  • Two books http://www.amazon.co.uk/Enough-John-Naish/dp/0340935901/ http://www.wethinkthebook.net/home.aspx
  • … and a quick quote “… This is a world that knows how to organize itself without command and control or charisma. Everywhere, life self-organizes as networks of interdependent relationships. When individuals discover a common interest or passion, they organize themselves and figure out how to make things happen. Self-organizing evokes creativity and results, creating strong, adaptive systems. Surprising new strengths and capacities emerge from new relationships…” Leadership of Self-Organized Networks; Lessons from the War on Terror Wheatley, Margaret J. Performance Improvement Quarterly, 20(2) pp.59-66

    • Lots of time spent fiddling with all this stuff
    • Infinitely expandable, but not coherently

    • Review
  • So, in review
    • Software is not a ‘solution’, it’s a tool to realise the patterns we need
    • Design and plan the model before going near ‘technology’
      • centrally and openly to wider stakeholders
    • Model needs to afford multiplicity and centricity, publicity and privacy
    • Facilitation is required and should be taken seriously from design phase
      • physical and virtual, marketing and community building
    • ROI – big question – must generate results:
      • quantitative, qualitative
      • actual cash opportunities for actors in system
      • potential tie-ins with health/activity targets
