A Users’ Guide to the 21st Century, Second Decade

We are in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century. We are also in the middle of significant transformations in the way we live and organise our daily lives, yet some organisations are still operating with the models and values they were using in the 20th century. A world of data richness, high connectivity, resource pressures and rising citizen competence is driving significant modal shifts – shifts not in what we do, but in the way we do things. These modal shifts are the death knell for some businesses and services and also the launching pad for new enterprises. This workshop guides you through five areas of our daily lives that being transformed and helps you reorient what you do to fit the future context.

What does ‘A Users’ Guide’ cover?
Using concrete examples of change already underway, this seminar explores five sites of transformation in our daily lives and provides the context to consider what this means for you, your organisation and its work.

  • Personal, portable and precise – the new normal
  • See through – authenticity, transparency, accountability
  • The new DIY – democratising production
  • Crowding the box – the de-institutionalisation of everything
  • Beyond Externalities – the enterprise beyond the your enterprise
