It is a pretty cool video on management. And I agree that this original way of presenting information by RSA is very convincing. There are many more animated videos on their website or youtube channel. Great content and intriguing to watch. Thanks Richard for posting and thanks RSA for being a powerful and inspiring platform.

Founded in September 2006 by James Bridle, booktwo.org exists to investigate, analyse, catalogue and debate the future of literature and the publishing industry.
Booktwo.org was founded out of a frustration with the failure of trade publishing to engage with new media and technology, a frustration reflected in the first essay: Birth Pangs of a new Literature. Over time, the industry has started to change, but booktwo.org continues to champion and challenge new literary forms and new publishing models.
James Bridle worked in a number of roles within and outside the publishing industry, from publicity and marketing to editorial, and from online strategy to web application development and production. His personal site can be found at shorttermmemoryloss.com.

They constantly present themselves, in effect, with the framing question “What image do I see in my mirror?” and the reframing questions “How might I see it differently?” and “What am I blind to?” Those questions help them continually reframe and reinterpret what lies before them, behind them and within them. They clarify their passions, redefine their strengths and reinvent their business approaches. Full story at Forbes.com. (via Alltop)
“Is it worth it? Many of the problems that the internet of things is supposed to solve actually have simple, non-technological solutions.
