RBPEA: How to build a world beyond money

Beyond money. It’s how most of us already run the economics of our own households. It’s how most of us already run most of our day-to-day interactions at work. It’s how perhaps most of us would already aim to interact

RBPEA: Why imagine a world beyond money

In the previous two posts in this series on background behind futures for enterprise-architecture (see video), we explored the idea of a focus on value, rather than money, as the anchor for our architectures; and then set out to imagine a world

RBPEA: Imagine a world beyond money

After the previous post, we’re left with a question to explore: Does money really make the world go round? Or would our world actually be better without it? Let’s put it to the test… We know already that money doesn’t

Why the bottom-line doesn't come first in enterprise-architecture

Yep, it’s red-rag time, folks… 🙂 Sometimes I really do despair of ‘enterprise’-architecture that completely fails to understand the difference between enterprise and organisation, or that mistakes the concerns of a single stakeholder group for the aims of the enterprise as

Currency, value and trust

More enterprise-architecture stuff, this time about the relationship between trust, value and money. This starts from a Tweet by Swedish consultant Oscar Berg, which triggered off a back-and-forth flurry: oscarberg: The main currencies of business have always been information &
