Phoebe Tickell is a biologist and systems thinker developing methodologies and approaches  suited for a better world. She is an innovator with a background in the biological sciences, technology, social entrepreneurship and systems design. She left the scientific academy with the knowledge that an understanding of complex systems could be applied to real world pressing issues and that bridges were needed to stretch from theory to practice.  She works across multiple societal contexts applying a complexity and systems thinking lens and has worked in organisational design, advised government, the education sector and the food and farming sector. She is a co-founder of the DGov Foundation – a community of distributed governance practitioners – and Member of Enspiral, a community that innovates in decentralising power and developing decentralised tools and technologies to do so. She also created Moral Imaginations in 2020 to push the frontier of research and implementation of research-backed collective imagination exercises and training to inspire change and find new solutions in an era of unprecedented disruption and potential for transformation. It’s clear that society needs direction when it comes to change, and in today’s episode we explore how imagination gives us the ability to think beyond traditional frames. Join us as we delve into training a new breed of activists, mapping unintended consequences, how to coordinate at a massive scale – and accounting for future generations with the choices that we make.     A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/phoebe-tickell/   Key highlights we discussed: > Why imagination has become central to building the future > The moral elements of new ways of organising > How diverse teams or communities can work from shared principles > Why we need to stay connected to our local communities > Why coordination is not ‘everything’ for DAOs    To find out more about Phoebe’s work: > LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/phoebetickell/  > Twitter: https://twitter.com/solarpunk_girl  > Website: http://www.phoebetickell.com/  > Moral Imaginations: https://www.moralimaginations.com/  > Moral Imaginations Twitter: https://twitter.com/moral_imagining  > Moral Imaginations Substack: https://moralimaginations.substack.com/    Other references and mentions:   > Indy Johar, A Development Future: https://medium.com/hub-engine/a-developmental-future-21bf6412625e   > The Manifesto for Moral Imagination: https://medium.com/moral-imaginations/a-manifesto-for-moral-imagination-dbf62f0cb7aa  > Trans-contextual Organizing: Shifting Perceptions — with Nora Bateson: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/nora-bateson/  > Daniel Schmachtenberger: https://civilizationemerging.com/about/  > Kevin Owocki, The Green Pill, with Phoebe Tickell: https://greenpill.substack.com/p/12-solarpunk-girl-phoebe-tickell?s=r  > L.

Jon Alexander began his career in advertising, winning the prestigious Big Creative Idea of the Year, before making a dramatic change. Driven by a deep need to understand the impact on society of 3,000 commercial messages a day, he gathered three Masters degrees, exploring consumerism and its alternatives from every angle.   In 2014, he co-founded the New Citizenship Project with Irenie Ekkeshi to bring the resulting ideas into contact with reality. Since then, they have been on a mission to figure out how to use our skills - not just to sell stuff - to Consumers, and involve people in the decisions that affect their lives as Citizens.   In this engaging conversation, Jon shares some great insights from his latest book Citizens: Why the Key to Fixing Everything is All of Us. We also explore how we can move away from being a passive consumer to being an active agent, how collective power leads to exponential results, the responsibility we have to build our own systems, and what a Citizen democracy means for the government.   A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: boundaryless.io/podcast/jon-alexander/   Key highlights We discussed: > Defining Citizenship > The Subject and Consumer stories versus the Citizen story > How leaders of organizations can help to empower people to be Citizens > Becoming active agents of change and investing in the future   To find out more about Jon's work: > Twitter: twitter.com/jonjalex > Website: www.jonalexander.net/ > New Citizenship Project: www.newcitizenship.org.uk/ > Jon Alexander, 'Citizens: Why the Key to Fixing Everything is All of Us', 2022: www.amazon.com/Citizens-Why-Key-…ing/dp/191245484X   Other references and mentions: > Ouishare Fest: www.ouishare.net/fest > Arlie Hochschild, The Deep Stories of Our Time: onbeing.org/programs/arlie-hoch…tories-of-our-time/ > Dark Matter Labs: rethinking organizing #BeyondTheRules - with Indy Johar and Annette Dhami: boundaryless.io/podcast/dark-matter-labs/ > Gov0 in Taiwan: g0v.asia/ > Rob Davies, Phasing out Russian oil: how UK consumers can help the war effort, 2022: www.theguardian.com/environment/202…-the-war-effort > Better Reykjavik: citizens.is/portfolio_page/better_reykjavik/ > The Liège Food Belt: communitiesforfuture.org/get-inspired…elt-belgium/ > Why Blockchain should be plural: Cosmos and Inter-Blockchain Communication - with Ethan Buchman: boundaryless.io/podcast/ethan-buchman/ > Rebecca Solnit, 'A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster', 2010: www.amazon.com/Paradise-Built-He…es/dp/0143118072/   Find out more about the show and the research at Boundaryless at boundaryless.io/resources/podcast/ Thanks for the ad-hoc music to Liosound / Walter Mobilio.

Lucía is an expert in Platform Economy and New Emerging Trends. She has been working with organizations of all types in applying platform-ecosystems strategies. She has participated in research with global organizations and helped to design public policies related to short rental accommodation within the European Commission, IDB, and some local governments.    In the last two years, Lucía has been studying the intersections between regenerative design and platform design in order to help public and private organizations in adopting a regenerative platform-ecosystem mindset.   In this conversation, we delve into the roots of regenerative thinking and why the movement is gaining momentum. It was fascinating to learn from Lucía’s expertise about what we can learn from nature, how regenerative thinking is a process – not a goal, redefining ‘abundance’, and some new organizations that are emerging in the platform economy.     A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website:  https://boundaryless.io/podcast/lucia-hernandez/     Key highlights we discussed: > What is regenerative thinking and where does it come from? > Lucía’s six key principles of regenerative design > The ultimate aim of the regenerative thinking movement > The role of place-based economies > The abundance versus scarcity mindset > Community wealth and investing     To find out more about Lucía’s work:   > Twitter: https://twitter.com/luciahdez3    > Website: https://luciahernandez.co/  > Lucía Hernandez, Regenerative Platform Design Principles: https://luciahernandez.co/2021/12/15/regenerative-platform-design-principles/  > Lucía Hernandez, Regenerative Platform Business Models- The next generation of platforms: https://luciahernandez.co/2021/04/26/regenerative-platform-business-models/  > TEDx talk on regenerative tourism (in Spanish): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qqoTXOr--U&ab_channel=TEDxTalks   Other references and mentions:   > Buckminster Fuller (1970).

What does it mean to create convivial organisations and platforms? Today we explore the relationship between technology and society with L. M. Sacasas – and what we can learn from the philosopher Ivan Illich (1926-2002).  L. M. Sacasas is the associate director of the Christian Study Center of Gainesville, Florida and author of The Convivial Society, a newsletter about technology and society. Michael has written for The New Atlantis, The New Inquiry, Real Life Magazine, Mere Orthodoxy, Rhizomes, The American, and Second Nature Journal.    Ivan Illich was a philosopher, Roman Catholic priest, and critic of the institutions of modern Western culture, who addressed contemporary practices in education, medicine, work, energy use, transportation, and economic development.    In this episode, we explore what we mean by conviviality, having tools to empower – not de-skill – humans, the necessity of limits, re-envisioning the good life, and how Ivan Illich has such a big global following in today's society.      A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/l-m-sacasas/   Key highlights we discussed: > The meaning of conviviality and the influence of Ivan Illich on L. M.

Dark Matter Labs is a multidisciplinary design team developing new working methods for system change. Today we’re joined by Indy Johar and Annette Dhami to discuss their mission of discovering, designing and developing the institutional ‘dark matter’ that supports a more democratic, distributed and sustainable future.   Indy Johar is a founding Director of 00 and Dark Matter Labs. An architect by training, Indy is a Senior Innovation Associate with the Young Foundation and a visiting Professor at the University of Sheffield. He co-founded Impact Hub Birmingham and Open Systems Lab, and was a member of the RSA’s Inclusive Growth Commission. He is a thought leader in system change, the future of urban infrastructure finance, outcome-based investment, and the future of governance.   Annette Dhami spent over a decade building, operating and driving mission-led (and often place-based) organisations and networks, including Impact Hubs (Brixton and Islington) and the Plymouth Social Enterprise Network, exploring how we organise, finance, use buildings, build networks and create economies for shared benefit. Annette joined Dark Matter Labs in 2020 to focus more deeply on how we organise and operate (in theory and creating this in practice) for transition. She holds the organising and operational work of the international Dark Matter Labs ecosystem (read more about that here), and explores these organising questions more deeply in the multi-partner #BeyondtheRules project.     A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/dark-matter-labs/    Key highlights: We discussed: Dark Matter Labs’ ambitions for creating a real learning organisation. Governing by building learning capacity inside organisations. The theory of genius to make people accountable through care and learning. The ability to work diagonally across local and global dimensions. Creating markets and new theories of value.  The tension and spectrum between “patronising” governance and fostering autonomous (almost autocratic) entrepreneurialism. Making space for care and innovation at every point in the system.   To find out more about Annette Dhami and Indy Johar’s work:   > Website: https://darkmatterlabs.org/  > Annette’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/annette-dhami-1735554a/ > Indy’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/indy-johar-b440b010/    Other references and mentions:   > DM Notes Series: https://provocations.darkmatterlabs.org/ > The Beyond The Rules project: https://provocations.darkmatterlabs.org/beyondtherules-e3ab44f0dc3    > Organising #BeyondTheRules series: https://provocations.darkmatterlabs.org/organising-beyondtherules-at-dark-matter-labs-e59e4f5dd32f    Find out more about the show and the research at Boundaryless at https://boundaryless.io/resources/podcast/   Thanks for the ad-hoc music to Liosound / Walter Mobilio.

In this first episode of Season 3, we talk to Jack du Rose and Aron Fischer from Colony.io — an infrastructure for internet native companies and a key player in the evolution of Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (DAOs).    Jack du Rose is a former jeweller, current blockchain nerd, and founder of Colony. He is excited by the power shift our decentralized future brings. When not making $100m diamond skulls, or paradigm shifting social platforms, Jack enjoys sesquipedalianism, bathos, and a nice cup of tea and a sit down.   Aron Fischer graduated with a PhD in Mathematics in 2015. Since then he has been researching the computer science aspects of programming in a blockchain environment. He is fascinated by the interplay of mathematics, economics, technology, and human nature that is inherent in systems. He has worked for the Ethereum Foundation and the Swarm team, and is a co-author of the Colony whitepaper. He continues to be involved with DAOs in general and the Colony project in particular.   A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/colony/   Key highlights: Organizing is about distributing budget through reputation. Time-based self-executing makes organizations have more bias towards action.  New priorities: affordances make (human) capability building possible. Contribution accounting and making “reputation as currencies”. DAOs modules (decision making, consensus, and execution). Entrepreneurial work can’t be commoditized. Network effects lie in connecting practitioners.   To find out more about Aron and Jack’s work: > Website: https://colony.io/ > Colony’s Twitter: https://twitter.com/joincolony   Other references and mentions: > Collectively Intelligent Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/collectively-intelligent/id1577798978 > The EEEO Toolkit: https://boundaryless.io/resources/#toolkits  > ShapeShift: https://shapeshift.com/ > COLONY Technical White Paper, 2020: https://colony.io/whitepaper.pdf   Find out more about the show and the research at Boundaryless at: https://boundaryless.io/resources/podcast/    Thanks for the ad-hoc music to Liosound / Walter Mobilio.

If you’ve heard any of the terms “open source software”, “web 2.0”, or “government as a platform”, you’ll be familiar with today’s guest – Tim O’Reilly – who has helped popularise these big ideas.     Tim is the founder, CEO, and Chairman of O’Reilly Media, the company that has been providing the picks and shovels of learning to the Silicon Valley gold rush for the past 35 years. The company's online learning and knowledge-on-demand platform at oreilly.com is used by thousands of enterprises and millions of individuals worldwide, and has a long history of convening conversations that reshape the computer industry.  Tim is also a partner at early-stage venture firm O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures and on the board of Code for America. He is the author of many technical books published by O’Reilly Media, and most recently ‘WTF?: What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us’.    He is a visiting professor of practice at the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose at University College London, headed by Mariana Mazzucato – mentioned more than once in this conversation – and is working on a new book about why we need to rethink antitrust in the era of internet-scale platforms.   In today’s episode, which is the Grand Finale for this season, we explore the future of internet-enabled organizations, and how to think about value creation and regulation of these tech-companies.  Listen on to find out what we can learn from the Golden Age of the internet, how platforms like Google and Amazon have lost their way over the years - and are now breeding their own competition - and what Tim thinks about Government-funded innovations. As the software industry is becoming more at the heart of everything in society, we need to create systems that enable more value than they capture.    If you want to hang on a bit after Tim’s final words, the co-hosts bring a brief wrap-up of the season and let you know the next plans for Boundaryless research activities. It’s been quite a ride this season too, and we are so grateful for both our loyal listeners and every guest who are pushing the boundaries of the future of organizing.   Remember that you can always find transcripts and key highlights of the episode on our Medium publication: https://platformdesigntoolkit.com/podcast-S2E21-Tim-O'Reilly    To find out more about Tim’s work:   > Website: https://www.oreilly.com/  > LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/timo3  > Twitter: https://twitter.com/timoreilly   Other references and mentions:   > Brad Stone, Amazon Unbound, 2021: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Amazon-Unbound-Brad-Stone/dp/1398500968 > Tim O’Reilly, ‘Why Elon Musk Is So Rich?’, 2021: https://www.oreilly.com/radar/why-elon-musk-is-so-rich/ > Tim O’Reilly, ‘The End of Silicon Valley as We Know It?’, 2021: https://www.oreilly.com/radar/the-end-of-silicon-valley-as-we-know-it/ > Tim O’Reilly, WTF?: What's the Future and Why It's Up to Us, 2017, https://www.amazon.co.uk/WTF-Whats-Future-Why-Its/dp/0062565710/ >  Adam Smith, Supermoney, 1972: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Supermoney-Wiley-Investment-Classics-Smith/dp/0471786314/r > Time O’Reilly, ‘The End of Silicon Valley as We Know It?’, 2021: https://www.oreilly.com/radar/the-end-of-silicon-valley-as-we-know-it/ Find out more about the show and the research at Boundaryless at www.platformdesigntoolkit.com/podcast   Thanks for the ad-hoc music to Liosound / Walter Mobilio.

It’s undeniable that the role of software in any modern organisation is essential – untangling software from the organization is almost impossible today. With new solutions emerging as part of the low-code or no-code movement, what’s the best way to organise around software effectively? Why is it so important to remove hand-offs between teams and to ensure that self-directed teams can be enabled by platforms? What are the overlaps between the world of DevOps and the work we’re doing at Boundaryless around ecosystemic, and entrepreneurial organizations? To better understand these questions, we bring on Matthew Skelton, co-author with Manuel Pais of ‘Team Topologies: organizing business and technology teams for fast flow’. It’s a seminal text that speaks about how to build the best team structure around the role that software has for your specific organisation. Matthew is recognised by TechBeacon in 2018, 2019, and 2020 as one of the top 100 people to follow in DevOps. He curates the well-known DevOps team topologies patterns at devopstopologies.com. He is also Head of Consulting at Conflux and specialises in continuous delivery, operability, and organisation dynamics for modern software systems.  In this conversation, Matthew helps highlight the real impact of digital transformation on companies, and what it means for team coordination. Join us as we explore key insights from his and Manuel’s book ‘Team Topologies’, low-code development platforms, API-drivenness, observability, and the impact of market validation and software-centric ways of organizing.

We explore how entrepreneurship within cooperative movements help to drive community ownership in the online economy. We’re excited to be joined by Nathan Schneider, a professor of media studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, who we know from the early days of the platform coop movement, when he participated in the first ever Ouishare Fest in 2013.    The very fact that Ouishare Fest brought Nathan together with Trebor Schultz for the first time is telling of what a powerful space that Ouishare Fest provides. And this year, Ouishare Fest is back, organised next week right at the outskirts of Paris - from 23 to 25 June. Check it out at http://ouisharefest2021.com/.      Currently, Nathan Schnieder directs the Media Enterprise Design Lab, and he has written books on cooperative enterprise, the Occupy movement, God, and the Internet. He is truly fascinated by the chronicling of ideas, of perfect worlds, of ordinary imaginations in practice. With his experimental attitude, Nathan believes that every word is a hypothesis and a test.   Tune in to this episode as we explore the cooperative movement and the different forms of community opportunities it provides. We also discuss ‘benevolent dictatorship’, levels of community participation, multi-stakeholder structures, and what we mean by community.   Remember that you can always find transcripts and key highlights of the episode on our Medium publication: https://platformdesigntoolkit.com/Podcast-S2E19-Nathan-Schneider   To find out more about Nathan’s work:   > Website: https://nathanschneider.info/ > MEDLab: https://www.colorado.edu/lab/medlab/    Other references and mentions:   > Ouishare Fest: https://www.ouishare.net/fest > Start.coop: https://start.coop/ > Stocksy United: https://www.stocksy.com/ > Nathan Schneider, Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition That Is Shaping the Next Economy, 2018: https://www.amazon.com/Everything-Everyone-Radical-Tradition-Shaping-ebook/dp/B078W6L1V7   > Loco: https://loco.coop/ > Morshed Mannan and Nathan Schneider, Exit To Community: Strategies for Multi-Stakeholder Ownership in the Platform Economy, 2021: https://georgetownlawtechreview.org/exit-to-community-strategies-for-multi-stakeholder-ownership-in-the-platform-economy/GLTR-05-2021/ > Nathan Schneider, Mediated ownership: capital as media, 2020: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/0163443719899035 > S2 EP. 18: Software and Protocols for a new way of Organizing — with Bryan Peters, Rob Solomon & Sascha Kellert: https://stories.platformdesigntoolkit.com/software-and-protocols-for-a-new-way-of-organizing-with-bryan-peters-rob-solomon-sascha-710b858dd77b > The Metagovernance Project: https://metagov.org/ > Nathan Schneider, Primavera De Filippi, Seth Frey, Joshua Z.

In our research at Boundaryless on the concept of the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Enabling Organisation, aka EEEO or 3EO, we’ve been wondering if a common approach to organizational development is emerging from the success stories of several pioneers, such as Haier Group, Amazon, Buurtzorg and others. In this conversation, Simone is joined by several guests who have experience to share in this field.   The first one is Bryan Peters, co-founder at Sobol.io - an app that helps teams visualize and manage dynamic organizational accountability structures - and is focused to explore what opportunities live at the intersection of human collaboration networks and decentralized technologies like the Ethereum blockchain.    We’re also joined by Rob Solomon, founder of Cone, which is an application that enables companies to organize themselves as a platform, where teams operate and interact with one another in a marketplace as if each were its own autonomous startup. Rob also worked with ConsenSys, Zappos, and The Downtown Project on various experiments with Holacracy and marketplace dynamics.    Finally, we’re joined by Sascha Kellert, the Founder of Rekursive, a venture-backed startup building the ownership economy aimed at making it easy for platforms and creators to make any person a co-owner in their business – simply through the web without lawyers or notaries.   In this episode, we discuss the 3EO ecosystem concept and the impact of the ownership economy. Tune in to learn more about how crypto can help design powerful new incentive structures and visual tools, and striving to work from a shared grammar.   Remember that you can always find transcripts and key highlights of the episode on our Medium publication: https://platformdesigntoolkit.com/podcast-S2E18     To find out more about their work:   > Bryan's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/bryan-peters-3125373/  > Sobol: https://sobol.io/   > Rob's Twitter: https://twitter.com/robmsolomon  > Cone: https://www.cone.network/    > Sascha's Twitter: https://twitter.com/kellert  > Rekursive: https://rekursive.org/    Other references and mentions: > Viable Systems Model by Stafford Beer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viable_system_model  > Last mover advantage: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/last-mover-advantage   > Phantom equity: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_stock   > Corporate Rebels Articles by Rob Solomon: https://corporate-rebels.com/rebel/robsolomon/  > EEEO Toolkit: https://platformdesigntoolkit.com/eeeo-toolkit/  Find out more about the show and the research at Boundaryless at www.platformdesigntoolkit.com/podcast  Thanks for the ad-hoc music to Liosound / Walter Mobilio.

Today we’re joined by co-founder and co-Chief Regeneration Officer of Regen Network, Gregory Landua. Regen Network is a land ecological commons management platform and the backbone for a new approach to ecosystem service markets based on verified ecological state.   Their community of actors engage with ecological regeneration, ecological monitoring, verification, distributed computing and technology development, centered around Regen Ledger. Network members track specific changes of land, oceans and watersheds. By improving our understanding of ecosystems and enabling rewards for verified positive changes, Regen Network catalyses the regeneration of the earth's ecosystems.   Gregory embraces the practical aspects of regenerative agriculture design by being a tropical agroforestry farm owner and manager, and for many years worked to assist farms and communities in a variety of climate zones as a permaculture designer. He has studied marine and terrestrial ecology and evolutionary biology in the Galapagos Islands, translated for Amazonian rainforest guides, fought wildfires in the wilderness of Alaska, lived in established ecovillages, founded a successful work-live cooperative, and studied the nuances of ecology and ethics.   In this lively conversation, we explore the impact of making information available to all. Tune in to learn more about ecological state claims and assets, proof of work, ‘moneyness’, and the relationship between transparency and accessibility in blockchain.   Remember that you can always find transcripts and key highlights of the episode on our Medium publication: https://platformdesigntoolkit.com/podcast-S2E17-Gregory-Landua    To find out more about Gregory’s work:   > Website: https://www.regen.network/  > LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/gregory-landua-4953b29/  > Join the Regen Network Discord channel: https://discord.gg/HedKw7etJt > Key papers:  https://regen-network.gitlab.io/whitepaper/WhitePaper.pdf  https://regen-network.gitlab.io/whitepaper/Economics.pdf    Other references and mentions:   > Ep. 10 Indy Johar - Redrawing the Human Development thesis for the 21st Century: https://stories.platformdesigntoolkit.com/redrawing-the-human-development-thesis-for-the-21st-century-with-indy-johar-5d45d2770170  > RadicalxChange: https://www.radicalxchange.org/ > S2 Ep. 13 Nora Bateson – Trans-contextual Organizing: Shifting Perceptions: https://stories.platformdesigntoolkit.com/trans-contextual-organizing-shifting-perceptions-with-nora-bateson-5a2f233b9d23  > S2 Ep. 5 Dave Snowden – Building Scalable Organizations that can Deal with Uncertainty: https://stories.platformdesigntoolkit.com/with-dave-snowden-88ef04b7fadb  > Yuk Hui, The Question Concerning Technology in China: An Essay in Cosmotechnics, 2016: https://www.amazon.com/Question-Concerning-Technology-China-Cosmotechnics/dp/0995455007  Find out more about the show and the research at Boundaryless at www.platformdesigntoolkit.com/podcast   Thanks for the ad-hoc music to Liosound / Walter Mobilio.

Today’s guest is Jabe Bloom, in conversation with Simone and Emanuele Quintarelli, Boundaryless’ EEEO Micro Enterprise Lead.    With Jabe, we look into how, increasingly in an age of technologically powered organizations, thriving means the ability to enable “the three economies” of differentiation, scale and scope at the same time. The key question is: what’s the role of platforms and ecosystems in this shift?    During the chat we explore topics such as managing organizational commons, ensuring continuity between the organization and its ecosystem, decentralizing information, sympoietic versus autopoietic systems, maneuver warfare theory, cosmopolitan localism, the role of social practice and methodologies in institutional innovation and so much more. We focus on the interplay between these trends and organizational development.   Jabe Bloom is part of Red Hat’s Global Transformation Office, where he services as a senior director. He has been working to explore the complex interactions between design, innovation, development, and operational excellence in organizations for more than 20 years. Jabe is currently writing his dissertation in pursuit of a Ph.D. in Design Studies at Carnegie Mellon University (PA) – his research focuses on the field of Transition Design and informs an ongoing exploration of the practice of design and strategy with a select group of international clients.    Tune in to this informative conversation as we learn more about Jabe’s research, and his theories on organisational design and platform thinking.    Remember that you can always find transcripts and key highlights of the episode on our Medium publication: https://platformdesigntoolkit.com/Podcast-S2E16-Jabe-Bloom      To find out more about Jabe’s work:   > Website: http://blog.jabebloom.com/  > Twitter: https://twitter.com/cyetain   > Red Hat: https://www.redhat.com/en    Other references and mentions:   > Herbert Simon:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_A._Simon  > Paul Lawrence and Jay Lorsch, Organization and Environment: Managing Differentiation and Integration, 1968: https://www.amazon.com/Organization-Environment-Managing-Differentiation-Integration/dp/0875841295   > Bruno Latour: http://www.bruno-latour.fr/index-2.html > Elinor Ostrom: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elinor_Ostrom  Find out more about the show and the research at Boundaryless at www.platformdesigntoolkit.com/podcast   Thanks for the ad-hoc music to Liosound / Walter Mobilio.
