Stuart Henshall reports a Dave Snowden keynote. Very clever stuff though I did get lost in one or two places.

What sticks with me most is Dave’s question: What’s the odd one out from chicken cow and grass. Here in the West most of us would say grass but in much of the world they’d say chicken. That’s because we’re trained to filter by categories; elsewhere they filter for relationships. Dave then elaborates on how this profoundly affects they way organisations are run (favouring boxes and isolationism). But the world’s changing and it’s relationships we need to focus on now. That’s my shorthand version but see what you make of it.
