The re-imagining discipline / mindset / methodology isn’t content to stop at how new tools—of which Office 365 is but one example—impact work practice. Or that the product designer can now be a freelancer who lives a continent away, but is deeply involved in design meetings using OneNote and a Surface Hub.

Of course there are models for looking at the world that balance interior and exterior modes of seeing the world, including Ken Wilber’s integral models and others.
