‘Betweenness’ : a way of being in the world

Escher’s lithograph is one that Iain McGilchrist often uses to discuss the paradox of linear analysis. At the beginning of this year my colleague Mariana Funes and I published a paper in which we argued for ‘both/and’ thinking, as opposed to ‘either/or’.

Prototyping and strategic planning

Chris Corrigan

We have to be careful about the tools we employ because some are great for linear, predictive planning and others require us to work on challenges differently. Visioning and goal setting vs. scenario planning. Goals and objectives vs. probes and prototypes.

Pattern entrainment is one of our biggest problems

Chris Corrigan

Further Reflections on Dave Snowden’s Resilient Organization

Portals and KM

Rather than taking a linear, deterministic approach to finding content through seeking repeatable patterns on the Web with an external framework like page rank as done by Google, we use Correlation Rank™ to find non-repeatable patterns in Web content that come and go in real time.

Disintermediated sensemaking

Chris Corrigan

And it is dominated by a world view of linear rationalism that says that we can learn something by determining whether or not you achieved the goals that you set out to achieve. in other words, where you have replicable results, linear, summative evaluation works great.

Reflections from 2011 – Is Employee Engagement Still a Myth?

Elsua

Yet, we keep failing drastically, and rather miserably, in achieving that long term goal of keeping employees motivated and all of that due to a very simple reason that most organisations seem to keep ignoring or neglecting big time: we consistently don’t ask them what they really want!

Complexity and movements change culture

Chris Corrigan

The key thing to notice here is that culture is changed by evolving movements, not linear programs. Movements are not led TOWARDS a goal, but rather emanate from a set of connected and coherent stories, actions and intentions, and self-correct, fail and adapt as they go.

This complex world is hard.

Chris Corrigan

And no amount of rational and linear planning will address that feeling. Sitting down and deciding on a vision, goals, objectives and plan just defers the pain, because it fools you into thinking you are in control but it sets up a false ideal against which your progress will always be measured to be short. Just off a call with a potential client today and we were scoping out some of the work that we might do together, with a small organization facing unprecedented change.

Portals and KM

Snowden looks at the basic principles and drivers of the shift from robustness to resilience and outlines new methods and tools to move strategy from a linear process developed and implemented over months to dynamic real type approaches with rapid adjustment of objectives, funding, and resources. You create achievable goals and adapt to what happens.   We need to move from scenario planning and linear process toward engaging everyone in continuous assessment.

For a world that is addicted to measurable outcomes and a linear progression of competency that leads from beginner to expert, this seems absurd. But there is no goal. We talk about the Art of Hosting as a practice. It is a way of being with self and other. This is sometimes a difficult concept to understand, because the world is full of lots of instructions about what to do. Telling me what to do is very useful in situations where I am doing things that can be repeated.

The core of facilitation is to serve the group and assist it in reaching its goals or purpose. The distance to the hard cold ground varies with the community or group goals. The purpose is often driven by the site owners goals. For groups with their own goals who choose to interact online the facilitator may be the convenor, team leader, outside facilitator, instructor/teacher, or simply an interested member. Their purpose is focused on the groups needs and goals.
