As far as I can recall, I first came across the name of John Maeda from this beautifully succinct quote:
A decent introduction to anyone, I think you’ll agree. Particularly when you have spent years trying to convey the need for and merits of TRANSPARENCY; the costs associated with AMBIGUITY and risks created by excessive COMPLEXITY.
John Maeda is President of the Rhode Island School of Design and is a Member of the Global Agenda Council on New Models of Leadership.
Discussions this year from the Global Agenda Council on New Models of Leadership culminated in a white paper, which describes a set of competencies for leaders in the 21st century. A central thesis of our work is the need for leaders to be agile in what are increasingly volatile and complex times.
