By Simon Robinson for Enlivening Edge Magazine Seven years have now passed since Frederic Laloux published his seminal Reinventing Organizations in 2014. The book is now required reading for any forward-thinking leader seeking to transform their organisations, with its three central breakthroughs of self-organisation, wholeness and evolutionary purpose being embraced and implemented across the globe. If we look at how the world is today compared to seven years ago, one of the most significant changes has been the emergence of Deep Tech, which is creating a revolution which has implications for every aspect of an organisation, resulting in new opportunities …

New uses for sensors are being created all the time; from marinas using them to increase safety by guiding yachts boats into place to taps in the public toilets. Animals are also being used as sensors. There’s a type of bird whose migration pattern can predict when hurricanes will hit months in advance. Estimates based on these birds’ migration patterns are even better than that of meteorologists.  As humans we rely on our senses to understand the world around us.

I originally intended to publish this post way back in May and got all the notes together but a mixture of work pressure and ill health (a bad foot infection now resolved) have hit the backlog.  If you have to spend two weeks with your foot elevated and iced taking strong anti-biotics its too easy to neglect things but they never go away!.  When that follows a pivot in your own company’s strategy with new staff to take on it gets even worse in terms of time to reflect and write.  But I’ve been making notes in this draft post …
