Unlock System Potential

Exploring our vision from unleashing human potential to system potential helps to create common rationale between perspectives, engenders new ideas, accomplishes multiplexing tasks, and amplifies the collective potential of our modern world.

Digital is the age of information overloading and fierce competitions, either individually or collectively, potentiality includes the overall ability to perform in the future by discovering the strength and building their core competency.

 Oftentimes, potentiality is “raw,” but it’s the worthy investment and hidden dimension to build unique capabilities, explore the emerging opportunities, design new business models, and investigate hidden paths for accelerating growth.

Systems potential: Human body is a system; every organization is a system; our world is a system; the system has emergent properties and keeps evolving. Thus, they have significant potential to grow and improve. There are symbolic systems; information technology systems, business systems, finance systems, education systems, etc. Systems Thinking is a way of understanding complexity and interconnectivity between the parts and the whole, in terms of its underlying functions and structures, its interactions with external systems, its components, the specific interaction among them, etc.

Cognitively, everyone performs systems thinking to some degree, whether they're aware of it or not. Thus, through the lens of systems potential, we can shape worldviews based on the realization of hyper-connectedness and interdependence; competition and collaboration; standardization and customization; etc. Because now there would be the likely competitive interests of the individual and the collective. Economic and political models provide some insight into the tradeoffs associated with either approach. Unleashing systems potential expands the new horizon for us to see and do things innovatively.

Symbolic system potential: There are symbolic systems such as language, beliefs, law, customs, culture, values, morality, etc. These kinds of systems may lead groups of humans to raise their consciousness about the need of organizing consistently their means (ideas), choosing to implement them according to their ends (goals) to develop individually and collectively their gregarious and cooperative features inherent in human nature.

To unleash symbolic system potential either locally or globally, we need to gain an in-depth understanding of numerous visible and invisible factors that perhaps influence the cycle of balance and growth. For example, symbolic systems are the most important subject for researching in global perspectives, which combined with a sense of responsibility and free decision would support altogether the manifestation of humanitarian societies aware of the role of human beings.

Information system potential: Because information technology is often the linchpin of differentiated competency, or the super glue to integrate process and capacity of the organization. The strategic value proposition of Information is how to capture the emerging trends, leverage resources and assets to create the optimal value and contribute to new business model development.

In fact, nowadays, information is the most time intensive piece of innovation management. So information system potential would directly impact on the innovation capacity of any other systems either smaller as each individual or larger as our shared globe. The Information Management System includes policies, structures, and programs, portfolios as well as the interwoven relationships between those elements, so managers can leverage them to drive world class innovations; unlock business performance and unleash their full digital potential by enforcing hyper-diversity and global wide collaboration.

Education system potentia
l: People are gregarious by nature, they tend to organize themselves and it gives rise to a collective set of attitudes, beliefs, educational systems, notions of time and space, society structures, ways of doing business, etc. Education is an amazing thing which provides individuals opportunities to discover their raw potential, train them how to think, besides instilling certain accumulated knowledge. Quality education should promote all positive perspectives of humanity such as the wonder of the unknown, freedom to imagine, confidence to create, empathy to understand, creativity to imagine, discipline to commit, skills to innovate. So a holistic education system in the creative economy needs to focus on unlocking the variety of human potential such as physical potential, intellectual potential, motivation potential, influence potential, etc.

We are what we think, rather than what we are taught. Encourage independent thinking and creativity. Today, there are both formal education and informal education; professional training needs to become an integral component of leadership/career development. The System lenses expand our horizon to fix the root causes of many issues within the systems or on the system; as well as understand the interdependent cause-effect of many complex problems facing our global society today. Therefore, the interdisciplinary approach can be applied to enable digital leaders to frame bigger thinking boxes, and approach education-related problems technically, culturally, and philosophically.

Exploring our vision from unleashing human potential to system potential helps to create common rationale between perspectives, engenders new perspectives, accomplish multiplexing tasks, and amplifies the collective potential of our modern world. As a society, we should be striving to create an environment that is inclusive enough to communicate within the spiral of conscious awareness; egalitarian enough to actualize our unique potential and encompass the collective human potential.
