in: 00 The Future

Reaching our full potential - as a civilization, society, organisation, or community - requires goals that challenge us to exceed that potential. Unfortunately, in this most instrumental of ages, daydreaming is unfashionable. An educational system inherited from the industrial era teaches us to keep our attention on the task at hand; the drive for upward mobility focuses our creativity on immediate problem-solving and practical matters of management. The age of deconstruction awards more points to critiques than to castles in the air.

Given these barriers, little wonder that people are uncomfortable with the verbs "vision," "imagine," "dream." If not for the cases cited in recent leadership and management literature which underscore the utility of vision for motivating exemplary performance, it would be difficult to convince professionals to engage in visioning. Yet it is something humans do naturally, that in fact we must be trained not to do. Reinstating visioning as a powerful creative tool is simply re-balancing our internal environment: giving equal pride of place to intuition and imagination next to logic and calculation. Envisioning a preferred future requires them all.

in: 17 the future of Developing Countries

Current trends seems to predict another period of creative destruction as a well-known economist once described it. Economic development in Asia and elsewhere is creating strong enterprises that, like in the case of Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, before them will want to conquer market share also on the European markets. Producers in the European Union will face stiff competition. Their very existence may sometimes be at stake. In my analysis outsourcing is a way of dealing with this process. It is a win-win strategy: it creates prosperity in third world countries and it secures a sustainable future for our production base.more....

In democracies, like any endeavour under the stars, it may pay off to set rules and guidelines. This observation is based on the fact that human knowledge and behaviour are usually flawed. In other words, we should be able to start every new venture with a clean sheet of paper; otherwise the word new is meaningless. more....

in: 12 the future of Energy

The pathways shown illustrate the scale and complexity of the change needed, as well as the progress that has to be made through to 2050. Our “checkpoint” in 2025 gives a measure of this progress and demonstrates the urgency to act early to shift to a sustainable emissions trajectory. more....

in: 32 Business Meetings

This paper gives an overview of pro-active meeting assistants, what they are and when they can be useful. We explain how to develop such assistants with respect to requirement definitions and elaborate on a set of Wizard of Oz experiments, aiming to find out in which form a meeting assistant should operate to be accepted by participants and whether the meeting effectiveness and efficiency can be improved by an assistant at all.more....
