John Shook: New Year’s Resolution Reflection

The transition to a new calendar year is an excellent occasion for general reflection, for asking: “how are things going?”

My first reflection this year is that in 2014 I didn’t do enough reflection! So, there’s resolution #1 – build in time for basic, fundamental reflection.  For specific reflection, here’s a sequence that often works well:

- Did the activity go as intended?
- If no, why not?
- If yes, was it useful (did it move the needle in the right direction)?
- If no, why not?
- What problems or issues? What improvement ideas?
- What are the aspirations for next time?
- What are the next steps?

So, tell us, why does your organization exist? What is the purpose of your work? What situational problems do you need to solve today? How can lean thinking help you attack them … respectfully one at a time.

Systems Oriented Design is a new version of systems thinking and systems practice that is developed from within design thinking and design practice. It is systems thinking and systems practice tailored by and for designers. It draws from designerly ways of dealing with super-complexity derived from supreme existing design practices as well as refers to established perspectives in modern systems thinking, especially Soft Systems Methodology, Critical Systems Thinking and Systems Architecting. Further on it is based on design skills like visual thinking and visualisation in processes and for communication purposes. Most central are the emerging techniques of GIGA-mapping. GIGA-mapping is super extensive mapping across multiple layers and scales, investigating relations between seemingly separated categories and so implementing boundary critique to the conception and framing of systems. In this paper we will present the concept of GIGA-mapping and systematize and exemplify its different variations. More>>

I have just finished reading a book: "Small Giants: Companies That Choose to Be Great Instead of Big" by Bo Burlingham. It was published in 2005 but I encountered it only this spring. It seems very important to me so below is my brief description of the book and its main idea. "Quietly and gradually … a new class of great companies has been forming …they have chosen not to focus on revenue growth or geographical expansion, pursuing instead other goals they consider more important than getting as big as possible, as fast as possible".

The Lewis Model Explains Every Culture In The World

A world traveler who speaks ten languages, British linguist Richard Lewis decided he was qualified to plot the world's cultures on a chart. He did so while acknowledging the dangers of stereotypes. "Determining national characteristics is treading a minefield of inaccurate assessment and surprising exception," Lewis wrote. "There is, however, such a thing as a national norm." Many people think he nailed it, as his book "When Cultures Collide," now in its third edition, has sold more than one million copies since it was first published in 1996 and was called "an authoritative roadmap to navigating the world's economy," by the Wall Street Journal.
