Digital Transformation: A Documentary Film Project by Manuel Stagars - 0 views

  •  
    Digital transformation is a multi-disciplinary topic-perhaps one of the most complex and confusing of our time. The purpose of this film is to make digital transformation easier to understand and start a conversation about what kind of digital future we actually want. Is the future complicated and inevitable, or can each of us create the future they envision? Technology is a curse and a blessing, but this depends on each of us thinking about the future in a constructive but critical way.

Elevate CA - 0 views

  •  
    Californians know how to innovate, how to be entrepreneurial, and how to use technology to create well-paying jobs. The state's diverse regional economies reflect the nation and world. And our values - including our commitment to sustainability and social inclusion - inspire us to lead and position us to chart a course for parts of the nation paralyzed by economic stagnation and the ensuing political backbiting.

    TurboVote helps you vote - nothing more. We're committed to protecting your data, so it's only ever used to provide you with voting information and services. To that end, we encrypt your connection to our site, so your sign-up information stays just between us. We take precautionary measures to restrict access to only those partners and services we need to make TurboVote run. And we deliberately don't collect or store ID numbers.

    We also don't sell your information, or share any more than is strictly necessary to power the TurboVote services you know and love. And we're happy to answer any questions you have about our data and security practices.

Simplifying Complexity or Complexifying Simplicity: The Promise and Perils of Systems T... - 0 views

  •  
    A potential danger in a systems approach is that there is a risk of overjargonizing and getting lost in complex terminology, maps and paralysis by analysis.
    One of the key themes that emerged from the discussion is that many people are starting to experiment with systems thinking but that it can be daunting or confusing to explain, operationalize or find common agreement. Does system thinking imply a rigorous and dynamic mapping of key actors, power relationships and other factors in a community (Yes)? But then how does systems thinking differ from a solid context analysis (still needs more explanation)?

To Make an Impact in a World of Brutality and Strife, a Funder Embraces Systems Thinkin... - 0 views

  •  
    Systems thinking, according to HU, has two important dimensions. One is the establishment of a new paradigm that understands global issues as inherently complex, multi-dimensional, conflictive and open to outside influence and intervention. A problem like slavery, for example, may seem intractable because of the economic interests it serves; in fact, the institutional and organizational linkages-the supply chains-that comprise slavery's power structure are vulnerable. The first step in system thinking is to map those linkages to better understand how they fit together and pinpoint their likely weak points. The next step is to devise a strategy that combines public advocacy, coalition building, insider lobbying, and investigative journalism to target those linkages, forcing those implicated in slavery, wittingly or unwittingly, to reform, and weakening the larger circuit of power over time.
