I'm working on a presentation I'll be giving at the Experience Service Design
event in Finland.
I'm trying show how change is a constant, it is how we grow, learn and survive. Change is life.
And the only real thread is not changing.
For one part of my presentation I'm compiling a list of threats to "business as usual". I asked people on Twitter to help me with this list. Which they generously did :-))
Please tell me if I'm missing something, or you just don't agree.
This is the list so far:
BUSINESS AS USUAL,
ACCEPTING THAT "BUSINESS AS USUAL" IS GOOD ENOUGH
RUNNING OUT OF FOSSIL FUELS
CHEAP AND EASELY AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY,
THE CORPORATE COCOON,
OUT-DATED BUSINESS MODELS,
THE WATERFALL METHOD,
WORKING IN CYLOS,
AGE OF INFORMATION,
NEED FOR SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS,
BEHAVIOUR OF THE COMPETITION,
CHANGING USER NEEDS,
SCARCITY OF RESOURCES / OIL/ METALS/ WATER,
CHANGES IN MANAGEMENT,
NOT BEING ABLE TO ADAPT TO NEW SCENARIOS,
JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS,
UNPREDICTABLE GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS,
NEW, RAPACIOUS TAXES,
PEAK CIVILISATION (THE FALL OF THE EMPIRE),
THE REWARD SYSTEM,
UNEQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH,
FAILURE OF MONETARY SYSTEM COMBINED WITH PEAK OIL AND COLLAPSE OF ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES.
