Serious long-term financial thinking

Everything here has serious financial implications

Pretend you’re a CFO back in 1950, 1970, 1990 …
and consider the decisions (and their financial implications) made or not made
by many prominent organizations.

We are already embedded in a knowledge society,
a society of organizations, and a network society


There is no reason to believe
that tomorrowS will be extrapolations
of yesterdayS

It is impossible
to work on things
that aren’t on one’s radar.

This is a mental radar loading system for tomorrowS

From computer literacy to information literacy
is a trail-head

… the organization of the post-capitalist society of organizations
is a destabilizer.

Because its function is to put knowledge to work
—on tools, processes, and products;
on work;
on knowledge itself—
it must be organized for constant change.

It must be organized for innovation;
and innovation,
as the Austro-American economist
Joseph Schumpeter (1883-1950) said,
is “creative destruction.”

It must be organized for systematic abandonment
of the established, the customary, the familiar,
the comfortable
— whether products, services, and processes,
human and social relationships, skills,
or organizations themselves.

It is the very nature of knowledge
that it changes fast and
that today’s certainties
will be tomorrow’s absurdities. — Peter Drucker
