Project Management and Leadership

 

What characterizes an innovatively organized and creative climate from a learning perspective? What implication does this have for management and leadership? Can one manage an open, insecure and unpredictable process? 

The aim of this paper is to describe how creative collective learning takes place in innovative transformation processes and how this effects changes in the process: Creative collective learning in transformation processes. The paper was presented at a European Conference on Creativity and Innovation i Lodz, Poland.

Futures Studies

 

Futures studies is the study of possible, probable, and preferable futures and the paradigms that underlie them.

 

The horse industry

 

In 2008 I wrote an extensive report in the form of a futures study, including three different scenarios for the Swedish horse industry. The study was commissioned by the Swedish Board of Agriculture as a part of the vision to strengthen the green sector. 

 

In order to have good animal welfare and strengthened entrepreneurship in rural areas, investments are acquired within the different niches including the horse industry. 

 

In May 2008 the horse industry was invited to a presentation of the futures study and round table dialogues in the presence of The Swedish Minister for Agriculture. More >>

 

The model used for the futures study and the scenario development process, is from The Vision Center for Futures Creation.

We know that we live in an unsustainable way. We know it probably will change, due to climate change, peak oil and a disintegrated world economy. Can we still be happy? Are we even particularly happy now? The relation between man and ecology is a complicated one. It is not just over consuming and the use of fossil fuel that have huge impacts on the ecological systems.  More >>

The term Gross National Happiness was coined in 1974 by Bhutan′s former king Jigme Singye Wangchuck. Since then Bhutan has seen profound positive changes in the socio‐economic paradigm.
