Working Papers [from the Archives]

These working papers are now slightly dated, but at the time they were the result of my collaboration with John Seely Brown and others to research the evolving interplay between new generations of information technology and new approaches to business strategy, operations and organization.

My new book, The Journey Beyond Fear, starts with the observation that fear is becoming the dominant emotion for people around the world. While understandable, fear is also very limiting.


The book explores a variety of approaches we can pursue to cultivate emotions of hope and excitement that will help us to move forward despite fear and achieve more of our potential. You can order the book at Amazon.
