Precepts are value judgments (including rules and continuous process) that networks are locally and globally designed around. Transformation precepts are those we need to search out and 7 billion people need to collaborate around if planet and peoples are to be sustainable out of every local community -literally we need to mediate gamechangers from being led towards exponential destruction to everyone passing through a conflict barriers at the same time to innovate producing and demanding around a rising exponential.**
This 12 minute training modules provides some examples of TP. Your most important exercise to start the second after the next 12 minutes is choose a TP that make sense to most of the people you network with both socially and in making a living (or if you are a student in your idea of what you would most like to do to make a living). Report back to all of us how you word the conflict that needed innovating beyond- and what experiments if any a mass of people in your network want most urgently to test
1 The clearest example may be afforded by why the majority of us are not doing relevant things to transform to abundant clean energy instead of being trapped in carbon's value chains. The main precept of changing to clean energy mimics nature's evolution rule-
TP1 one system's waste is another system's energy input
|.................................................................................Do you know of a Fortune 1000 ceo or a national leader who walks this talk? At valuetrue.com we have been searching for such leaders for 25 years. My search began at Big 5 global accountancies in 1989 helped by my father who was "retiring" from writing 3000 leaders for The Economist to do other writing including a biography of the greatest systems modeler he had ever met John Von Neumann - for many the father of the open computing age. Ironically war led John into dying before hos tie in testing the dirtiest energy ever (nuclear) instead of the most peaceful photosynthesis.
Among the 1500 biggest decision-makers in the world, I can tell you from quarter of a century of network searching, those that walk the talk on Transformation Precepts are incredibly scarce. Back in 1989 I was one of the first to develop a process for brands to marry each other as they needed to integrate local and global meaning. I know all the people who made unique contributions to the emerging practice of brand architecture. The number 1 challenge we tried to prevent was greenwashing - so far we haven't succeeded.
Mass media "creatives" found it easier to make money in the short-term by advising brands with the greatest reality problems to greenwash. Worse they were supported in concocting brand valuation algorithms by the Big 5 accountants raced to preserve the measurement monopoly in the biggest boardrooms with metrics that devalue sustained change on the altar of short-term extraction.
|TP2 there isnt a single global profession that values Transforatuon Precept 1- this gives us a clue for another precept :
- TP2 we can define the most valuable chnane beyond industrial revolution as one where there is zero tolerance for externalising risk- unless leaders making the biggest decisions (be the nation's place servants or ceos of biggest companies in each global sector) are advise by professions that value multi-win models -mapped to be bottom-up and borderless in how they multiply human trust and purpose - instead of externalising risks from the biggest to those with the elast , humans will be expoentially racing to destroy the futures of our next generation - this precept was first theorised by Einstein when he was advising gandhi on how to design more sustainable rules than those chained by the English's empires professional classes; its be poivotal to the genre of entreprejeurial revolution founded by father in The Economist since 1972 when he first saw hundreds of youth collaborating around an early digital network- enetrepreneur has since become one of the sexiest words in both society and business- if you are passionate about a type of entrepurial movement ask yourself if it unites people who act on zero tolerance for externalsiation
WHOS THE NET GENERATION'S GREATEST GOODWILL MULTIPLYING CEO OF THEM ALL?
There used to be the US ceo Ray Anderson of Interface Sustainability but he died recently (his role to show that even an industrial sector like carpets could map a half-generation plan to go profitably negaive carbon); If there is a living US CEO who most gets it- who would you say that is? John Mackey (Whole Foods and h conscipus capitalis movement is one nomination. Who else would you say?
TP3 and this gives us a clue for dr yunus' dream:
TP3 that a best for youth university could be free and online- it needs to doublecheck the whole truth of every curriculum it examines students on by whether its professors can collaboratively map how their teaching sustain next generation. Previously India had a president who was also one of the country's leading scientists- he love dialoguing with youth. His web oromise to collate questions that youth dared to ask and that most of India's senion bureaucrats had not yet begun to innovate an answer to. When Kalam's presidency was nearing its close- he issued a wish India 2020. Youth please connect together tear up by 2020 any curriculum you are taught that isn't exponentially sustaining the future.
Media note- is it possible to invite thousands of highly cflicted people to join in innovation through which they all pass through a conflict barrier and broken systems at the same time. The method was invented in the early 1980s by Harrison Owen, It is caled Open Space. There is a peculiar finding from the first 500000 open spaces that Harrison has cataloogued with thousands of alumni. The yiunger you are above the age of 9 the easier you find it to truly and interactively participate in such a transformation celebration and collaboration
