  3. 3. "How  to  make  intellect  the  resource  of   [Ukraine's]  development"             What  kind  of  future     Are  we  talking  about?   04-­‐10-­‐2013   Hank  Kune  /  New  Club  of  Paris  
  4. 4. A  Knowledge  Society?     A  Learning  Society?     Rapid  and  accelera*ng  pace  of  change     Complex  and  turbulent  socio-­‐economic  environment     Ineffec*ve  future-­‐orienta*on  and  short  term  focus:                right  now  and  not  next  year     Changing  nature  of  work  and  work  spaces         Stressful  working  and  thinking  environments     Difficulty  to  introduce  new  ways  of  working  in  tradi*onal   ins*tu*ons     Inability  to  put  new  ideas  into  prac*ce     Compartmentalized  work  and  defending  your  turf     Our  ins*tu*ons  are  outdated  
  5. 5. Is  the  system  broken?   A  structural  disconnect  exists  between:     •  the  infinite  growth  impera*ve  and  the  finite  resources  of   planet  earth;   •  the  Haves  and  the  Have  Not's;   •  the  financial  and  the  real  economy;   •  technology  and  real  societal  needs;   •  ins*tu*onal  leadership  and  people;   •  gross  domes*c  product  (GDP)  and  actual  well-­‐being;   •  governance  mechanisms  and  the  voiceless  in  our  systems;     •  actual  ownership  forms  and  best  societal  use  of  property.   O`o  Scharmer  (2012):   Leading  from  the  Emerging  Future:  From  Ego-­‐system  to  Eco-­‐system  Economies

  10. 10. Report  on  Intellectual  Capital  of  Poland   In  2008  Poland  produced  a  Report  on  Intellectual  Capital  of   Poland.  This  ini*a*ve  was  intended  to  call  the  a`en*on  of   poli*cians,  the  media  and  opinion  leaders  to  the  importance  of   the  quality  and  level  of  intellectual  capital  in  the  long-­‐term   development  of  Poland.

  12. 12. Renewal  Capital   How  well  a  country  or  organiza*on  can  u*lize  its   human,  structural  and  rela*onal  capital  in  order  to   foster  con8nuous  learning,  innova8on  and   development,  in  order  to  sustain  its  compe**veness   even  in  changing  condi*ons  
  13. 13. “CLOSING  THE  INNOVATION  DIVIDE”   OPINION  of  the  Commi>ee  of  the  Regions   July  2013     “We  cannot  address  societal  challenges  through  minor   adjustments  and  conven*onal  management  methods.   BoosJng  renewal  capital  is  cri*cal  to  success:  crea*vity,   innova*on  and  the  confidence  to  innovate  and  reform  are   also  the  keys  to  success  for  local  and  regional  decision-­‐ makers.”     “Regions need new arenas as hotspots for innovation co-creation. These could be described as "innovation gardens" and "challenge platforms", which together form a prototype workspace for inventing the future. These are needed to address challenges - from small local challenges to major societal challenges at global level.”
