My guess is that we can’t really imagine it before we turn it into a prototype. But maybe we can explore what we’d like to see EE becoming a prototype for?
In my imagination, EE can become a prototype for:
• a new form of cooperative enterprises, where the members care for and support each other’s well-being and fuller potential as much as their own
• collective sensing and meaning-making organs of social movements, which augment their collective intelligence, wisdom, and impact
• an ecosystem of EE-branded, self-organizing, Teal media organizations that pursue their evolutionary purpose in a variety media, engaging the power of synergy, cross-marketing, and transmedia storytelling
Of course, that list is not complete. Why not share the fruits of your imagination about what you would like to see EE becoming a prototype for?
Whatever we imagine, I recommend that those of us are or want to be engaged in the prototyping use the questions associated with the 5 dimensions outlined by Otto Scharmer below.
