Watch “Shift Happens”
This video was created around 2005. Thus the information presented in it is 17-18 years old. As you are watching it, keep these two thoughts in mind (How have things changed; exponentially? How have things stayed the same?) This is import for understanding how some problems are always problems with no solution, and the only thing that changes is our ability to accept the problem as normal (or not a problem). Sometimes the solution is acceptance and not change.

2. Watch “Simple Rules for Governing Complex Systems”
The purpose of this video is to show how the solutions to complex problems do not need to be complex. That no matter how complex the problem, small things can have significant influence.

3. Read “Are You Solving the Right Problems?”
Are you solving the right problems.pdf Download Are you solving the right problems.pdf(Harvard Business Review by Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg)
