An idea can change everything

This week I had the opportunity to participate in a “preview” of  the webinar  Applying Social-Political-Technical Design to any Purpose no Matter How Complex with Bill Smith, and I can say, I’m truly excited about it!

Bill’s ideas are really innovative, and I’m really looking forward to hear more about how every system can be understood in terms of purpose and power, and how we can design more effective interventions.  Join the Socio Technical Systems community on March 22nd at noon EST!

Webinar: Design and the Expression of Human Aspirations

Join our colleagues Don de Guerre and Bernard Mohr in this free webinar/dialogue for Plexus Institute, tomorrow  Friday Jan 13 at 1 pm EST.

Design and the Expression of Human Aspirations”


When people who work in organizations help create the design and structures that align with organizational purpose and values, the result can be centers of creative energy that are also productive and enjoyable places to work.

Bernard Mohr, who notes design is a verb and a noun, is co-author of  a new book, Co-Creating Humane and Innovative Organizations. His colleague Donald de Guerre, who believes workplace environments impact society at large, wrote the book’s chapter  “Open System Theory and the Two-Stage Model of Adaptive Action.”  De Guerre writs that treating workers as cogs in a big impersonal machine begins a process that “over time creates a dissociated superficial society in which fewer and fewer people vote and we are vulnerable to a new kind of feudalism.”
