Venturing forward.

So now with intellectual models for aligning a venture around a purposeful response to a deep calling, and for designing a viable organizational system it begs the question - now what?

Investment. Investment of capital... intellectual, social, and financial.

In ideal clean slate this might look something like this:

  1. identify a calling
  2. gather a group of diverse though leaders and community members to explore/deepen the calling
  3. conduct an 'externalities analysis'
  4. reconvene a modified group to:
  5. conduct an 'internalities analysis'
  6. design the viable system
  7. reconvene a modified group to:
    • craft strategic directions
    • establish near-term action plans
Of course this cannot be a rigidly linear/sequential process but rather is an iterative co-creative one. It is also a continual process of capital investment: intellectual, social, and financial... done in an integrated co-creative style. And that's what I'm working on now.
