Home: Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century In 1994 the MIT Sloan School of Management launched a bold initiative in research and education called "Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century." The mission of the center was to not only understand emerging ways of working, but also to invent entirely new and more effective approaches and put them into practice. The genesis of the effort was found in a unique point in our history. Sweeping political, economic, social and especially technological transformations have created a fundamentally new era of business characterized by unprecedented complexity and rapid change during the 1990s. These sweeping changes have produced startling setbacks for what have been some of the world's most successful companies, and at the same time brought great opportunity for new types of organizations.

Kardashev scale The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring an advanced civilization's level of technological advancement. The scale is only theoretical and in terms of an actual civilization highly speculative; however, it puts energy consumption of an entire civilization in a cosmic perspective. It was first proposed in 1964 by the Soviet Russian astronomer Nikolai Kardashev.

The Commission on Wellbeing and Policy It is widely agreed that GDP is an important yet insufficient measure of national success. In an attempt to broaden the scope for public policy analysis, a lot of progress has been made on developing the measurement of individual wellbeing, but a lot remains to be done on how best to apply these data to policymaking. The Commission on Wellbeing and Policy works to fill this gap and explore how wellbeing analysis can be usefully applied to policy. Chaired by former UK Cabinet Secretary Lord O’Donnell, the Commission, which ran for approximately one year, produced a final report that illustrates the strengths and limitations of wellbeing analysis and provides original and authoritative guidance on the implications for public policy.

Scientix Innovation Plaza (Click for larger version.) The Innovation Plaza is a new initiative spearheaded by the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at the University of New Mexico (UNM). This program resulted from students at UNM and around the nation clamoring for more opportunities to see the topics presented in their engineering courses reinforced by physical demonstrations in a laboratory. Engineering students are often left to wonder about the “real world” applications of their studies and there are few, if any, opportunities to make connections to other disciplines.

Forget The Wisdom of Crowds; Neurobiologists Reveal The Wisdom Of The Confident Way back in 1906, the English polymath Francis Galton visited a country fair in which 800 people took part in a contest to guess the weight of a slaughtered ox. After the fair, he collected the guesses and calculated their average which turned out to be 1208 pounds. To Galton’s surprise, this was within 1 per cent of the true weight of 1198 pounds. This is one of the earliest examples of a phenomenon that has come to be known as the wisdom of the crowd. The idea is that the collective opinion of a group of individuals can be better than a single expert opinion.
