Think Like a Fox
In the 20th Century, we had ideologies. In the 21st Century, we have DATA. Most of the problems we face today are simply a hangover from the 20th Century where ideologies dominated. Now we have emerging disciplines like design thinking. We must push past the noise of those who still shout about why their ideology is better than someone else’s. We must use data to collaborate, create and innovate.
I use the Fox and the Hedgehog story to describe a framework that is needed to advance human learning and society.
The fox framework is a pluralistic approach, like design thinking. It is multi-disciniplary. It embraces data. But primarily, thinking like a fox means that you recognize the complexity of problems and reject simplistic ideological explanations.
I try to use data as much as possible in this blog and in doing so, I may make mistakes. Please feel free to point out mistakes. We all make mistakes and we all need to learn from them.
The World Needs Foxes
The world needs Foxes. Especially these days. It’s a cliche, but technology and globalization are changing the business environment faster and faster, and Foxes are needed to lead change, help organizations adapt and find solutions to complex problems that demand multi-disciplinary involvement.
This blog is for Foxes.
I am not that smart, but I try to be a Fox.
I started this blog to help me organize my thoughts and experiences, collect the different disciplines of knowledge I try to keep track of and revaluate the lessons I have learned while working around the world.
I started this blog to help me be a better Fox.
Hopefully, it will help others too.
