- The network of ‘myceleum’ could be our team members, but they are not connected
- If each ‘change’ like the forester, affects the landscape forever – need to be careful
- We need to always know what the time horizon is for each decision, you optimise differently for strategy, legacy and tactical needs
- You need to understand the parts of the eco-system (team) then trust the others to know how to grow given a common view (not all do everything)
- Ash Die Back – there are external factors, we know it is happening
Using the three trees story – we need to create a consistent narrative and just have a view on it, not just questions
In space and time – guided discovery to the woods talking through the land and view in front of us from Glaciers to Silurians and St Govan
Coppiced wild wood
walk inside the system of a very old wood, probably always was a wood.
- What is the biggest organism in the wood?
- Which tree is most valuable?
- If this is a ships timber, how many ships can these 10 acres build?
- The soil test.
- How much wood should be ‘cropped’?
The Orchard System
explore the layout of the Orchard
- How do apples get produced?
- Where are the boundaries of the ‘system’?
- How sustainable is the crop?
- Where do we intervene?
These two sessions are designed to invoke different perspectives which the team then relate to their organizational system.
- What is our system?
- Where are the boundaries we lead?
- How sustainable is it?
- What are we optimizing?
- What is hidden to us at the moment that is not being considered?
