My Reflections on the Mobile World Congress

Nancy White

In reflecting on the event there were some definite pluses: The keynotes and sessions were excellent although many rooms were over-filled and could not hold all those interested. Over my career I have become a technology "conference veteran" beginning with Comdex in the 80’s. This event grew to over 220,000 attendees and over 20,000 vendors. For several years I was privileged to be a judge for Best of Comdex, so became very familiar with the conference.

Dave Snowden’s reflections on a theory of change

Chris Corrigan

Dave is working on a theory of change, which I think is a good thing. In this latest post he has a nice summation of the way to move to action in complex situations (like cultures): So where we are looking at culture change (to take an example), we first map the narrative landscape to see what the current dispositional state is. That allows us to look at where we have the potential to change, and where change would be near impossible to achieve.
