Comment on “Imagining the Future of Design and Collaboration”
The current primary bottleneck to accelerating design and collaboration results is limited individual and organizational process thinking capability, that is, the ability to work with and share mental models of processes. Until the machines get much better, the primary effort must be made in human minds. The predicted shortfall of hundreds of thousands of technology staff is ample evidence of the bottleneck, though the impacts of the bottleneck of limited process thinking capability extend far beyond technology.
Accordingly, the most effective single action point for increasing competitive advantage for both individuals and organizations is to systematically increase those capabilities. There are many approaches for accomplishing that. The starting point for all of such approaches is to contemplate the pain that is caused by the bottleneck.
