4 20 th C to 21 st C Science Capacity to analyse, control, predict behaviour (20thC) Messy, unpredictable, chaotic A few simple rules Doing things right or doing the right things?

5 Messy, chaotic …most people feel lost in the organisation of which they are a part. Managers are overwhelmed by too much information, too many rapid changes, and too many conflicting demands… Senge, Fifth Discipline

6 Messy, chaotic … from an early age we are taught to break apart problems, to fragment the world. This apparently makes complex tasks and subjects more manageable but we pay a hidden, enormous price. We can no longer see the consequences of our actions..we loose our intrinsic sense of connection to the larger whole.. Senge, Fifth Discipline

7 Messy, chaotic … core learning dilemma – we learn best from experience, but we never directly experience the consequences of many of our most important decisions…

8 Messy, chaotic … when asked what they do for a living most people describe the tasks they perform everyday, not the purpose of the greater enterprise in which they take part… most see themselves within a system over which they have little or no influence. They do their job put in their time and try to cope with forces outside their control…

9 Messy, chaotic …previously we focused great effort on allowing people to do their jobs better.. We saw learning how to do the job better as the principle driver of quality…in this new era where information plays a greater and greater competitive role, the question becomes notcan I do this job better, but What should I do? What is the right thing to do
