The Big Ecosystem

“It isn’t that they can’t see the solution. It is that they can’t see the problem…” wrote G.K. Chesterton. An ecosystem is a tricky thing to draw because every ecosystem is different. I guess it’s a borrowed term that points to a bunch of things that are related to each other and therefore impact each other. In the context of solving a technology problem, it’s essential to have an understanding of the big picture as you can only really solve a problem when you can see it clearly. So draw out a visual landscape of all the parts, and see how many questions, gaps and misunderstandings pop up…

This Thinkery was captured live during a series of workshops by We Are Open, for Catalyst.
