    Patrick… good work… this is well worth a review… when you download the power point and reveal a blank screen with only one blank slide in your deck numbering system, this does not change until you press the Play button.

    Universe, weather and then more local complex systems then chunk down in to patterns in my thinkbox and in a change context the need for a genie’s lamp to exchange new understanding on the patterns from the old ones.

    Pattern breaking and new sense making are key to change and Patrick is on the edge of sense making in part 1. Patrick makes a great contribution to LinkedIn Change with thanks from me and a recommendation to all.

      Hi Clive – thanks for the encouraging words :o) …also. thanks for the technical feedback.

      I am offering 2 different ways to view the ‘Part 1. Emergent Change’ video:

      1. I added a You Tube link to view the ‘Emergent Change .mwv video’. (easier)
      2. Re: the ‘Emergent Change’ PPT video. I added more emphasis on the site to your point about the blank screen and having to manually start it by clicking on the ‘Play’ button – all limitations of the current technology of LinkedIn, Word Press, etc.

      Hearing such words especially from yourself is most encouraging. I find the world of emergence fascinating especially as it relates to individuals, groups and organizations. I was always interested in what is on the horizon… and creating ideas into practical, concrete approaches for effective change that works.

      Thanks Clive – you have no idea what your words do mean to me in this journey…

      All the best, Patrick
