Maximilian Journey created an extraordinary rendering of one of Sir Ken Robinson’s talk on Education: “The Power of Imagination“. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywtLnd3xOVU&feature=youtu.be)
Sir Ken Robinson’s Insight is so crisp and so detailed that I felt creating a BOLT diagram of its content would be a great way to show how BOLT works, how it can be used to help communicate, align insight and ultimately reach the desired outcomes.
One of the key originalities of BOLT diagrams is that they capture “states” (a.k.a. outcomes) and the lifecycle that ties them together. This presentation shows brilliantly how simple changes in the endeavor of being educated can make a huge difference into the outcomes for society at large.
This 5 min talk delivers a powerful “Call to action” message, which can be represented in a single page diagram. However, that kind of transformation is massive and present its own challenges: limited amount of resources, very large amount of people involved over fragmented periods of time, even the topology is a challenge. All these characteristics are common to most if not all non-profit efforts. This is why it is important to be able to communicate and align everyone’s insight to respond effectively to a call to action and reach the desired outcomes. This is, I believe, what BOLT can deliver.
