Eric Berlow – Is it complex or complicated in less than 3 mins?
Have you discovered TED? “TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It…brings together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.” This guy Eric Berlow is brilliant. He has been able to create a functional model that clearly demonstrates what it really takes to find simple solutions to complex problems. You have to step back not dive in.
So often in business, when the profit graph starts to looks like the pool side slide to the deep end, most executives dive in to work harder and harder vs step back to see where profit solutions lie. As Eric points out, when you focus on the “links” that are obvious, they are generally the more unpredictable ones.
Instead, step back and get the BIG picture of the entire company environment to see all the possible links and from that perspective hone in on the spheres of influence that are REALLY going to make the difference. “Zoom out to zoom in.” Sign up for TED. Don’t miss out on all these fresh ideas that can stimulate your creative solutions.
Weekly, 3-18 minute videos keep you abreast of innovative, imaginative, creative, inventive ideas, concepts and solutions.TED Fellow Eric Berlow illustrates how to break down complex issues into simpler forms, so we can understand and address them.
