Assembling complexity and changing the game

Creating There

exercise 1

It is 2002. You're planning for a celebration and presentation. You are being interviewed for a feature article in Fortune Magazine. Your enterprise has made remarkable changes over the past few years ... changes that have brought significant value -- not only to the bottom line -- but just as importantly to customers, employees, and vendors. You too, are well satisfied: some of the goals you feared too far reaching (and "soft") have been accomplished. You muse over your interview. What is it you want to say?

What are you most proud of?
How do customers, employees, vendors, stockholders interact?
Success didn't come easy; there were several stumbles along the way. What were they? How did you compensate for them and turn crisis into opportunity?
You look back 3 years and realize how different your enterprise has become from just a few years ago. What has caused this difference?
What role did you play?

Bringing There to Here,
