Think Anew

Complexity- based approaches are inherently messy in nature: we are dealing with non-linear problems and we need multiple methods and tools operating in different ways from which patterns can emerge that allow us to think strategically.

Trust Tagged

Trust tagging is a natural human phenomenon that is critical to knowledge transfer and the validation of authority as well as general problem solving. Here is an example. When you have a problem or need, you could contact a Jen, a colleague to see if she or anyone she knows can help. A day later you get a call from someone who knows Jen and he says he can help you. You have just been trust tagged in a network linkage.
