About me & my work:

Our world is full. Some of this is good but much is bad. Business is a big part of both. How can we use scientific knowledge to help business make things better?

My vision is that business becomes a key enabler for the possibility for human and other life to flourish on this planet forever - business must create tri-impact by striving to be tri-profitable: financially rewarding, socially beneficial and environmentally regenerative.

As my contribution to this audacious goal I have convened a global team to create tools, design principles, methods, patterns and case studies to enable people everywhere to create flourishing businesses.
