Unprecedented levels of change and complexity are making our age-old managerial and operational approaches obsolete.

This site is dedicated to an emerging generation of online knowledge sharing and problem solving solutions that offer new ways of getting things done.

Today’s organizations need a new set of knowledge and decision tools that will help with extreme change and socio-technical complexity. The tools must be virtual, cross discipline and scale small or large for:
  1. Strategy and planning
  2. Decision making
  3. Problem solving
  4. Organizational learning
  5. Risk mitigation and preparedness

Next-Gen Knowledge and Decision Tools

StackOverflow is an explosive platform that "came out of nowhere" and built a huge passionate user base because it has superior knowledge collaboration technology that is not available from SAP, Oracle, IBM or the usual suspects.

Next-gen knowledge and decision tools are going to turn the software industry upside down over the next few years… it’s already started.

Mindmeld building blocks

StackOverflow is just one example of a whole new family of synergistic knowledge/decision platforms that intelligently integrate:

  1. Knowledge Management
  2. Social Media
  3. Behavioral Analytics
  4. Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS)
  5. Workflow engines
  6. Messaging, feeds and alerting
The new world of knowledge and decision tools contains several different approaches that each support "group mindmelds" in unique and complimentary ways:
  1. Knowledge Exchanges
  2. Group Intelligence software
  3. Group modeling and mapping spaces
  4. Social / knowledge workflow management
Collaborative decision and knowledge platforms (Mindmeld Tools) can insulate teams from the risks of extreme change rates and socio-technical complexity.
This site approaches complexity and change from the standpoint of new and exciting virtual tools. But for each use of a collaboration platform, there must also be a method that applies the tool correctly.

Fortunately there is an emerging body of new collaboration methodologies coming from government, academic and enterprise thinkers who are combining the latest in cognitive science with various behavioral and KM best practices.
