COVID-19, Sustainable Transformation and Creating Integrated Value


This lecture will reflect on the lessons of COVID-19 from a systems thinking perspective (including exponential growth, feedback loops, overshoot and collapse, convergence and emergence) and explore how these could be applied to achieve sustainable transformation in the post-Corona era. The Integrated Value framework will be introduced, which shows how we need to move from areas of systemic breakdown (the five forces of fragmentation: disruption, disparity, degradation, disconnection and discontent) to pathways of systemic breakthrough or innovation (the five forces of integration: secure, shared, sustainable, smart and satisfying).
