Designs stabilise relations. They are communication channels and structures for agreements and values. We need them to deal with complexity and to bring our future desires and choices into being. Yet how we build our designs, structures and channels has a big impact on how we relate to each other, how we collaborate. To become aware of our patterns and create tailor-made designs influences our perspectives on norms. This, in consequence, influences our actions: e.g. when and how we create the future, how we include or exclude people, how we share, how and where we address our values, how and what we decide, and thus whether we reduce or increase our options, what focus we choose for our future, etc.
In my consulting work it is my role to support organisations and leaders to create something new. Such a process requires spaces that can be developed to create tailor-made designs. Tailor-made designs are essential for supporting intentions, strategies and goals in organised stages, as well as for arranging resources and managing power relations.
Throughout human history we have developed new designs and new forms. We have transformed, developed and grown collectively towards a shared future. No matter what position we are in, each of us deals with patterns of power and politics, markets and environments.
