An online community for systems innovation in finance
So What’s the Plan?
We are developing a network for systems innovation in the context of finance - a community of practice for those interested in new approaches based upon systems thinking. “A community of practice is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.”
Why are we doing it?
Behind the scenes, our industrial age financial system is not feeling so well, it’s a machine of incredible complexity that makes it slow, expensive, lacking in transparency, and is thus prone to fraud, promotes speculation and instability. But the challenge of developing new forms of decentralized digital finial systems is a complex one. A new systems innovation approach will be needed to develop finical systems fit for the 21st century.
Financial systems innovation?
As our financial systems become ever more complex and the need for more sustainable outcomes rises, systems innovation, is emerging as a promising new approach to enable the much-needed systems-level changes. It’s an approach characterized as being more holistic, taking account of all relevant factors, more networked, working with connectivity, more emergent, working with bottom-up processes of self-organization, more dynamics, dealing with processes of adaptation and evolution.
