I work with input variables - figuring out and finding the data and insight that goes into an organization in order to make it successful. Working with these problems I am sensing a gap - between what we want our organizations to become and what we put into our organization to get there. The premise is that our imagination is limited by the tools we use to understand the world around us. And that we are using old models to collect our data - and because we are using old models and methods we are only picking our data from the same pools of experience and information as we have done for decades past - serving us the same perspective of the world as we are used to seeing. The future is not directly in font of us - it’s outside. And so looking in the same direction only further, or in the same places only deeper, won’t help us listen to the right data in order to navigate towards where we are going. In this talk I shed light on this problem, that I am working on, probing and playing with. And I also try to explain why this is an important issue to solve right now - because of the changes in both the business models and practices that create wealth and customers behavioral patterns.
