"We have reached the end of problem solving as a mode of inquiry capable of inspiring, mobilizing, and sustaining human system change.

The future of Organization Development belongs to methods that affirm, compel, and accelerate anticipatory learning involving larger and larger levels of collectivity."

"Our first response to overcome problems is part of the very mindset that generated them. Fragmentaion, competition, and reactiveness are not problems to be solved; rather they are frozon patterns to be disolved.

The solvent we propose is a new way of thinking, feeling, and being; a culture of systems. Fragmentary thinking becomes systemic when we recover 'the memory of the whole,' the awareness that wholes actually precede parts."

--- Peter Senge, Otto Sharmer, etc.
