Watch the video and see the numbers. I like the numbers. I like the message. And I keep wondering: If this is all happening to the hardware and software around us, how does this effect our behaviour and our ways of being together? If these are all technologial upgrades happening…what about our “social software” upgrades? What does this development mean for education? For adult learning? For the way we meet each other face to face? For having great conversation? For figuring out how to solve complex challenges? What do we need to be aware of? Who will invest in these social software upgrades? How? What (& who) risks being left out/behind? And what new possibilities are out there? And will be coming to a city near you soon? What a journey!
Our friends at Xplane just sent out a newsletter with the above big picture showing the Cap Gemini Accellerated Solutions Environment. This concepts originated from our heroes of MG Taylor and has since also been a key ingredient in what our heroes at The Value Web does. And here is a good quote for everyone in business to take in:
“The power that a single image has to convey an enormous amount of content is underappreciated in business today. However, the ability to create such a piece that is simple, clear and elegant is a real art”.
Chip Saltsman, Vice President, Americas Leader, Capgemini Accelerated Solutions Environment.
This was said in connection to the above Xplanation. We will here take the liberty to broaden it out as a statement around the field of graphic facilitation, visual dialogue and communication.
