  • Why Agile Development (should) work

  • Harnessing the circular economy

    The combination of removing value-in-exchange thinking, understanding progress sought, and pulling the levers on the progress resource mix leads us to harnessing the circular economy.

  • Leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

    Leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

    Where does Artificial Intelligence fit in the progress economy? Generally it’s part of the proposition resource mix.

  • Progress Hurdles

    Progress Hurdles

    A progress hurdle is a factor that, if perceived as too high by a seeker, may lead them to decide not to start, or to abandon, a progress attempt. According to the engagement decision process, the seeker uniquely and phenomenologically determines if the hurdles are low enough. The six identified hurdles in the progress economy […]

  • Overview

    Our classic, economic and marketing, view of value is driven by the notion of value-in-exchange. Of successive manufacturers embedding or adding value. And of end users destroying/using that up; perhaps being able to restore/reclaim some value, but having to do so themselves. A combative world of manufacturers and users or customers; producers and consumers. Here’s […]

  • Markets in the Progress Economy

    EARLY DRAFT / thoughts group of seekers. with similar progress sought (not necessarily the same progress, but sufficiently similar). having access to the offering (this is why software has driven recent growth? AI democratising access to expert knowledge? ). Does deciding to engage belong in definition?disruptive innovation can be defined by market (group of seekers […]

  • Deciding to engage a progress proposition

    Deciding to engage a progress proposition

    Understanding why and how a progress seeker decides to engage with a progress proposition – the engagement decision process – is critical to unlocking growth and innovation. Knowing the hurdles, for example, gives us a zone for innovation to reduce them. Comfortingly, our engagement decision process builds on top of the progress decision process. It […]

  • Deciding to make progress

    Deciding to make progress

    The progress decision process identifies the decisions a progress seeker makes, and when, as they attempt to make progress on their own. That is to say without the help of any progress propositions. (For the more impatient…the engagement decision process builds on this process reflecting that progress propositions introduce additional progress. Reducing progress hurdles is […]

  • Progress, Service, and Innovation

    We find a deliberate, and pleasurable, progression in how progress, service, and innovation are expressed in the progress economy. Each including and building on the previous. Progress Progress sits, as expected, at the base. It is a process, i.e. a series of activities, that move over time move the progress seeker to a more desirable […]

  • Understanding Progress

    Understanding Progress

    So what is progress? It’s a verb, a noun and a state transition. At a high level, we say that it is: progress: moving over time to a more desirable state And we’ll call this more desirable state: progress sought. It comprises functional and non-functional elements, informed by context. Conceptually, a seeker attempts to progress […]
