Prosperity Council do? our questions for you "We can set our sights higher. We can choose to work together in creative and effective ways...

"How about if... organizations agreed on... priorities, then invested heavily in dollars and talent to make the kind of major impact that none of the parties could have produced on their own?

"A regional climate prosperity council can take many forms—but should reflect the unique characteristics of each region....

"To make this transition will require a support network and governance model that will maintain the momentum, mobilize action... , manage... implementation, and measure... progress over time....

"Create a regional green user exchange.

"...a regional climate prosperity dashboard."

How decisions made Leading strategist and business thinker Gary Hamel says that the "overriding problem for every organization is how to change, deeply and continually, and at an accelerating pace."

But lasting change is hard. People and organizations rightfully resist. And yet the challenges before us require bold new insight, creativity, and innovation. Conventional wisdom is turned upside down. There are no easy answers, quick fixes, or low-hanging fruit.

Hamel identifies three factors that are forcing all of us to rethink how we lead, manage, and organize:

"inescapable challenges that defy conventional management wisdom,
new social technologies that allow human beings to accomplish great things without the weight of bureaucracy,
and a new generation of employees who come to work pre loaded with antibureaucracy values."

Gary Hamel, "Three forces that will transform management"
McKinsey: What Matters, February 26, 2009
http://whatmatters.mckinseydigital.com/organization/three-forces-that-will-transform-management In a rapidly changing world, the knowledge that matters the most is tacit.... Accessing this kind of knowledge requires long-term trust based relationships and a deep understanding of context.

This often requires discussing publicly...issues you're wrestling with so others can become aware of them and seek you out if they are confronting similar issues. This can be very uncomfortable for most of us, because we are reluctant to expose provisional ideas and acknowledge that we are struggling with developing those ideas.
