New frameworks of 2011: Connected Success, Transformation of Business and Government, Crowdsourcing

Trends in the Living Networks

I believe strongly in visual frameworks as a way of communicating and engaging with complex ideas. I share these on the web, sometimes use them as central frames for my keynotes, apply them in strategy workshops, use them to shape my own thinking on the topics they cover, and sometimes create private custom visual frameworks for clients to define and articulate their strategy. I will be shortly launching a more complete review of all the public visual frameworks I’ve created.
