To shape a better future, we must be able to see through the lens of new perspectives.  Emerging patterns are frequently invisible through the lens of current metrics, and while more data seems like the answer, it frequently leads to other problems: Situational blindness and a false sense of security. There is a solution, and it lies in the ability to re-imagine in different perspective and realize that the quality of our answers are dependent on the nature of our questions..

Mission teams, engineering teams, surgical teams, audit teams, judiciary panels, and advisory councils develop unspoken norms - group heuristics if you will – patterns of communication so deeply hidden that they are invisible even to those within the group.  These patterns become the lens through which the group makes all interpretations - the way it lives, breathes and learns. It controls how the group communicates, solves problems, and recognizes the environment - these patterns are the most powerful influence on group effectiveness.
