My top LinkedIn posts (you won’t BELIEVE number 77!) ;-)

I joined LinkedIn way back in April 2007, thanks to a colleague who came back from a course at the Harvard Kennedy School and told me that everyone in the US was on it. Around that period, and particularly from 2009 onwards, it was a good way to tell which public service clients were doing … Continue reading My top LinkedIn posts (you won’t BELIEVE number 77!) 😉

An outline approach to organisation or service review

What tools, approaches, perspectives do you reach for when you have to review an organisation, service, team, or department? Here's my 'go to' list when I am asked to look at a whole 'service', usually in public services. This is a sketch of methods and views we use to try to get a rounded view … Continue reading An outline approach to organisation or service review

What do you think when you see someone flying this flag?

My view is that the least British thing of all to do is to fly the flag, outside of very special ceremonies and very limited occasions. In the ‘Cool Britannia’ era, ‘progressives’ like me began to feel it was ‘safe’ — and maybe a good thing — to embrace a bit of patriotism. This was perhaps not unconnected to … Continue reading What do you think when you see someone flying this flag?

How to hack LinkedIn

Every Monday and Wednesday I do a LinkedIn post that I put some special effort into. I’ve been doing this religiously for some time and (including a few ‘normal’ posts that got a bit of traction, I’ve now done 176 such posts. The last few have had really good ‘viewing figures’: 34,875 Will you come … Continue reading How to hack LinkedIn

Will you come to a conference that doesn’t have all the answers?

Will you come to a conference that doesn't have all the answers? Requisite Agility Unleashed is next week. And while the internationally-renowned speakers and panellists have done deep, committed work to develop their approaches, theories, methods, and practices, we are coming together because it is the questions which are more important. We aren't asking 'since … Continue reading Will you come to a conference that doesn’t have all the answers?

Do you want a job in the future? Is my theory crazy?

I believe that the future of work is – no jobs. The idea of an ‘employment contract’ will fade away as we realise that the whole way we understand employment is paternalistic, hierarchical, and unequal. A 'job' isn't a contract between equals – it’s 'tied service and patronage', where ‘human resources’ exist to protect the … Continue reading Do you want a job in the future? Is my theory crazy?

What’s your most controversial view about digital transformation?

We should all just straight-up refuse to use the phrase "digital transformation" from now on. There's only organisational transformation. That was David Durant, a major #publicservice and #localgov digital guy https://twitter.com/cholten99/status/1461381436481552386 I'm stealing it, though, because I agree. Here I shared 'top tips' from 16 professional advisers: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/antlerboy_accelerating-enterprise-digital-transformation-activity-6865914557689421824-mLp2 This is what *I* think: 1) slow … Continue reading What’s your most controversial view about digital transformation?

What capability do public services most need in 2022 and beyond?

The degree of stress, pressure, and overwhelm seems to have been growing for the last twelve years, with crushing austerity accelerated by the twin crises of COVID-19 and “Brexit”. We have learned that we can rise to the occasion, as heroes – but the slow crises are even harder to deal with. The challenges of … Continue reading What capability do public services most need in 2022 and beyond?

The Liminal Web: Mapping An Emergent Subculture Of Sensemakers, Meta-Theorists & Systems Poets

Somewhere along the way I seem to have unofficially joined a subculture or memetic ecosystem that I’ve come to think of as The Liminal Web. While there aren’t any hard and fast edges to this international constellation of thinkers and theorists it becomes pretty clear you’ve joined the fray when at least thirty percent of all the intellectual media you consume tends to emerge from this particular noospheric relay.
