Presentation by Brian (Ponch) Rivera


Everything that moves is a flow system and has two features: The current that is flowing (for example, information, value, mass) and the design through which it flows.

In today’s VUCA environment, Innovation, Agility, Resilience, and Safety are often treated as disparate organizational problems to be solved with disparate currencies (for example, Design Thinking, Safety Differently and Safety II, Human and Organizational Performance, Scrum, Resilience Engineering, Operational Excellence, Kanban, Lean Agile, Six Sigma, DevOps, and a growing family of rigid Frameworks). To move away from these high-energy and expensive islands of disconnected effort approaches, organizational leaders need only to focus on (eco)system configuration and rhythm—design for flow.
