“When I feel that something I’m writing is going well, everything in my life is good and the things in my life that aren’t good are completely manageable. If it’s not going well, Miss America could be standing there in a swimsuit handing me a nobel price and I wouldn’t be happy about it”
Aaron Sorkin

Bryan Ungard – Deliberately Developmental Organisations

n

This came to me via Richard Bartlett and:

  1. Listening to it while reading Christopher Alexander’s A Timeless Way of Building feels almost eerie … as if Bryan is looking over my shoulder and re-whispering the book in my ear recontextualized from the architecture of buildings to the architecture of organizations.
  2. I felt a deep sense of relief and gratitude and a strengthening of trust in the world … that this view is taking root in an actual organization.
  3. I appreciated a sense of grounding coming from Bryan, rooted, I believe, in the fact that he is speaking from EXPERIENCE … that he’s attempted to apply, made mistakes, adjusted course … this is living knowledge.
  4. I love that there is a title “Chief Purpose Officer” and that someone like Bryan occupies it.

Thank you, Bryan, for this heartfelt & thoughtful manifestation of purpose.
