About this blog

Brain cropped“The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking” (John Kenneth Galbraith)

With Galbraith in mind, this blog is about getting people thinking!


Who’s it for?

This blog is aimed at people who have an interest in improving their organisation through ‘Systems Thinking’ and are curious enough to read and engage.


Why me?

I won’t claim to be an expert* (you can verbally abuse me if I do) but, given my role as a Business Consultant, my experience to date & my ongoing massive interest in the improvement arena, I have the motivation and a level of knowledge to write what I consider to be relevant posts.

* every time I learn something new, I realise how little I actually know.


What do I want from you!

Not a lot!

  • ‘sign up’ to receiving my posts if you wish;
  • read these posts, with the mindset of how it might assist in make your organisation better at delivering value to customers and improve your working lives; and
  • where you find value in doing so – use the comments facility (below each post) to:
    • provide constructive feedback to me; and/or
    • extend the post by sharing a relevant insight relating to the message

Caveat: whilst I am really keen on ‘stimulating thought’ and I will post on things which will contradict much of ‘modern management’, please bear in mind that I am writing as much for me as anyone else and am simply exploring ideas in a (likely) amateur fashion. As such, I make the obvious request to please be respectful in your comments and suitably gentle in your (no doubt) justified critique. Thanks.

  1. Who are you? Do you have a name? A face? A linked-in profile, perhaps?

    Is any of that appear anywhere on this blog? Or are you deliberately being ‘mysterious’?

    Or perhaps in some kind of a “witness protection program”?

    Make it easier to find out who you are ……. please…… 🙂

    Thanks !!!

    • Haha! No, I’m not ‘on the run’ from someone, or something…or trying to be ‘mysterious’ 🙂

      I’ve just chosen to remain anonymous (so far), though many of my friends and colleagues know that the blog is my writing.

      My reasoning is that I hope people read my posts simply for what they are, and think about them accordingly….and that attributes such as ‘who I am’, ‘where I’ve been educated’, ‘who I’ve worked for’ etc. are (mainly) irrelevant.

      However, I’m more than happy to ‘say hello’ to anyone who wishes to make contact. I will send you a quick private email accordingly.

      Cheers,
      Steve
