This blog started after the first Lean Thinkers Conference at the University of Applied Sciences HTW Dresden back in October 2007. The name of it stems from this time. Over time many different disciplines, perspectives, and approaches have accumulated, such as adding an intense part on Saxon State Opera Semperoper and the Semperoper Ballett Company, as well as fields like system dynamics.
After five years now, in the age of five, it seems that the "baby" has grown up to not just learn more, but to put learning into practice. In doing so, using modern information technology as the key enabler, that often comes a wall into sight, like "The Wall" that separated the "West" from the "East" and caused the "Cold War": people, and organizations stay in front of their own "mental wall" denying possible, not yet done changes in education, business, and civic engagement.
However 2012 being the 100th birthday of Alan Turing on 23rd of June (just two days before my own birthday) it enables the power of positive change towards abundance, leveling the inequalities of the world by the use of information technology across boundaries.
Peter Diamandis' latest talks about "Abundance - THE FUTURE IS BETTER THAN YOU THINK" have sparked various thoughts, and actions.
Get yourself sparked, and inspired to take action in our world of ABUNDANCE watching Peter in these two videos yourself:
If you'd like to add any thoughts, action points, or comments feel free to do so here.
PS.: Despite the fact "sailing through rough life waters" it is always great to be pulled forward towards one's own dreams. If you not sure what is driving me really that passionately, please ASK.
