Denken nach Illich A Manifesto for Agile Strategy: oxymoron or innovation? « Made by Many You can talk and think about stuff for ages and ages before doing something or other. Why not just do something straight away and learn from that? London was basking in unexpected sunshine and Tim Malbon (aka @malbonster) and I were wolfing down some fish and chips in Soho. ‘Doing over planning‘ might be the simplest way to summarise the Agile philosophy that Made by Many so fervently pursues (a great non-tech articulation of the Agile approach to web apps is Getting Real by 37 Signals). I was further prompted by Stuart's excellent recent post exploring some of the differences between "Agile" the philosophy and "agile" the adjective, in which he concludes: Two of the most interesting questions for me is how is Agile going to scale beyond a team level? So this is the question that has been haunting me: what role can or does strategy have in an Agile world? My short answer to this, is most definitely. 1. 2. 3. Deep research and immersion in complex problems is all good and well. 4.

The Beginner’s Guide to Zen Habits – A Guided Tour | Zen Habits Post written by Leo Babauta. Follow me on Twitter. While some of you have been following Zen Habits since its early days (beginning of 2007), many of you are fairly new readers. To help you through the fairly overwhelming archives, I’ve compiled a beginner’s guide. Kind of a Quick Start guide. First, a note: Please don’t try to go through this all at once. Take it in small chunks. Where do you start when you have a thousand posts to read through? So here they are: The All-Time Most Popular Posts on Zen Habits But those are just the stars of the All-Star team. Or you can go through a few compiled guides I’ve hand picked for some of the more popular categories: And if that’s not enough for you, here’s a month-by-month Best of Zen Habits: By now, you might want to know more about Leo, the guy who writes this blog … well, here’s more than you ever wanted to know: Whew!

Remapping your strategic mind-set - McKinsey Quarterly - Strategy - Globalization Senior executives need better mental maps to navigate our unevenly globalized world. Although a wide variety of metrics show that just 10 to 25 percent of economic activity is truly global, executives disproportionately embrace visions of unbounded opportunities in a borderless world, where distances and differences no longer matter. In several articles and books, I’ve tried to describe the true nature of globalization and suggest ways for executives to structure their thinking about distance and difference effects (see sidebar, “Understanding the world and measuring distance”). Here, I want to focus on the potential for a special kind of map—one I call a “rooted map”—to help leaders enhance their intuition about the opportunities and threats inherent in our semiglobalized world. Rooted maps correct a misperception reinforced by conventional ones: that the world looks the same regardless of the viewer’s vantage point or purpose. Using rooted maps to understand opportunities Exhibit 1

The Future of Learning Start-up Strategy: To Change the Game, Change the Economics of How It’s Played (photo: laffy4k) Several weeks ago, I found myself in the passenger seat of a car going nowhere fast. My friend, Peter Sims, who had earlier introduced me to the Stanford D.School, was leading the charge into the unknown, hurtling us (hopefully) towards dinner in exotic Burlingame, where people from SF and Palo Alto compromise to break bread. The “us” included Alan M. Alan was co-founder of Fast Company magazine and former editorial director of the Harvard Business Review. More specifically related to this post, Alan developed a very interesting habit more than 20 years ago, when he began to carry a supply of 3 x 5 index cards wherever life took him. His new book, Rules of Thumb, is a collection of 52 truths he’s culled from these notes specifically related to winning in business. Here is Rule #24, one of my favorites. RULE #24 – If you want to change the game, change the economics of how the game is played. Except for the Grateful Dead. So What? How do you do it?
