Fordcastle is taking on today's global disruptions
TODAY'S PROBLEMS REQUIRE CONCERTED PUBLIC-PRIVATE INNOVATION AND SYSTEMS THINKING
The 2015 book, No Ordinary Disruption explains how the mega-trends of urbanization, demographic change, exponential technology and globalization are disrupting society. The book notes that each trend alone would be game-changing; taken together their impact could be some 3,000 times that of the Industrial Revolution.
Amidst massive change and uncertainty, many voters feel with good reason that today's increasingly unequal system is not working for them.
How we work
The Fordcastle team believes addressing these unprecedented disruptions requires a new approach which underpins our values.
Recognizing that our societies, economies, lives are all interconnected. Solutions require engaging all stakeholders across society, in particular private and public sector, but also academia, non-profits, and people themselves.
Humans are social animals and collaboration is not a weakness, it is a competitive strength. Building solutions for the long term requires a mindset of partnership, which is what we look for in our clients and partners.
Starting with the end in mind, and that usually mind how is the life of a certain group of people going to be made better, and how will we be able to measure this.
