He quotes from Tim Brown, CEO of Idea and the creator of Design [...]

Generation Flux is the name coined by Robert Safian, and unlike generations X and Y which were age-related demographics, Generation Flux is a state of mind. Generation Flux has the following characteristics: Chaos seen [...]

The video was made as part of the series of short films Conversas de Valor made by Sustentare [...]

  • I have had an interest in David Snowden’s Cynefin framework for understanding complexity for some years now, and so it has been really interesting to read his blogs on how he is updating the model and adding a finer layer of granularity. He has made the latest versions available on Flickr under a creative commons […]
