Consilient Organizations

The level of complexity in our world is rising exponentially, and there’s no end in sight.  Our challenge is to evolve ourselves and our organizations to find new ways of working and being that enable us to find and realize opportunity in what sometimes looks like chaos.

Recently, IBM released their Global CEO Study summarizing the findings from face-to-face interviews with over 1500 CEOs and senior leaders around the world.  The study concludes that:

Our vision of a consilient organization is one that addresses these concerns by fundamentally shifting how we think about and go about working.  We defineconsilience as creating more generative and unified ways of thinking, working and being.  In practical terms, that means moving past the infighting and turf wars that drain so much creativity and vitality from our organizations, and getting people engaged in making a meaningful difference.

Through this blog we will explore the many facets of this evolutionary process of moving from command and control to consilience.  We look forward to being in dialogue with you to create and build upon our shared insights as we discover the possibilities of consilient organizations.
