JLW CEO Summit "Strategies for a Complex Business World" Hayes Mansion San Jose, Ca September 26 and 27, 2013
Dr. Ted Lewis and Dr. Rodrigo Nieto-Gomez on "Complexity Theory"
The old world is gone. The new world is a highly connected global system full of surprises that make 20th century planning and strategy obsolete. Lewis, author of Bak's Sand Pile, and dozens of other books on technology and business, explores the role of complex systems thinking in modern business. How do small companies like Apple Computer rise to dominate their industry? Why do market leaders stumble and fall? The answers lie deep inside of complexity theory – a theory once confined to the physical sciences but now being applied to socio-political-economical systems.
Complexity theory gives the 21st century executive a new way of analyzing the shifting sands of global markets, shifting demographics, disruptive technologies, and unbounded opportunities enabled by technology and emerging societies. This understanding will give you a "leg up" on competition, because success in the 21st century depends on understanding the highly interconnected, global, non-linear, disrupting modern world.
Learn about the Strategy of the Strong, Strategy of the Weak, how to gain market share from your competition, and how to turn the tide of disruptive technology in your favor using the Borg Strategy. Get the deep insights you will need to be a successful competitor in the new world.

The Dark X Prize: Darwinian innovation at the Border.
A "Dark X Prize" at America's border has created the most unregulated and most effective networked-for-profit organizations in the history of mankind. The borders of North America are the gateways that interconnect our economy with the rest of the planet and represent huge business opportunities for American corporations. Globalization has made our borders with Mexico and Canada the number 1 and 2 most crossed borders in the world, and our production and supply chains are now fully interdependent, resulting in a highly networked complex system.
But at the southern gateway of the United Sates, a unique confrontation between clandestine actors and governmental agencies is taking place in the context of the so-called "war on drugs". While the media often talks about it, it does it in a way that completely ignores something incredible that is occurring right now in this strategic territory: deviant innovation. This innovation has created the most Darwinian business environment in the world, where adaptation can be observed in real time!
The government strategy of building and maintaining walled fortifications the way the United States has been doing since the 90s has provoked a response by the clandestine actors who are fighting to penetrate them. A live or die innovation effort has made the borderlands of America a place where competitive conflict and friction cannot be ignored, nor forgotten. It is very simple; for drug smuggling organizations, the price of losing the clandestine innovation wars is often paid for with their own blood. Survival of the fittest is not a metaphor.
In a process that can only be understood as a complex adaptive system, border fortification actually increases the incentives to penetrate it, rather than decreasing trans-border smuggling. The more effective the governmental response, the more the criminals are encouraged to break it, because interdiction increases the value of the smuggled product. As value increases, so does innovation and competitive conflict. This deadly game is a kind of Dark X Prize.
The famous X Prize Foundation rewards "radical breakthroughs" by "creating and managing large-scale, high profile, competitive prize incentives that stimulate investment in research and development." The complex adaptive trans-border system has created a similar environment - the Dark X Prize - that rewards clandestine actors to permanently innovate in their attempts to defeat the border defenses.
What can positive globalization learn from this Darwinian criminal ecosystem? How can American corporations learn to innovate as if their lives depended on it? (Guess what?...it does!). Learn how your company can innovate as fast as a drug cartel.

Never has there been a more compelling time to commit to the process of finding your life's purpose – that work that provides your reason for being and generates a state of bliss and fulfillment. All over the world, a shift is taking place. On one hand, the world seems to be in a dire situation – our ecology is more fragile than ever and wars and hunger take the lives of many people each day – on the other hand, humanity as a whole is awakening to the understanding that our lives can and should be more than just a constant struggle for survival.
Just imagine: An 'on purpose' world where people are too preoccupied living according to their true purpose to bother waging wars, stealing from one another, or committing countless other abuses. It IS possible to make a better world. And YOU are a vital part of this change.
It is my firm and passionate belief that if people become serious about seeking and living their life's purpose, it will produce a ripple effect on this planet, the likes of which we have never seen. It could even play a huge part in ending poverty, war and hunger.
