Games seem to be always the same. There are some winners and many who lose. It does not have to be like that. Can you imagine games with more winners and less losers? Do you see paradigm shifts in our economic logic?
Enter a new paradigm! Change the Game is based on the idea of paradigms as sets of rules for problem solving. By changing the rules we create innovative problem solving strategies. Be a part of the solution instead of being a part of the problem.
Be innovative! Change the Game is an innovation hub, a living community that creates profitability by innovation. We share knowledge, enhance awareness and combine innovation and ethics for profitability and prosperity. But according to Albert Einstein "No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it." Our method is dialog, listening to others, and thinking together to create innovations that really make a difference.
Be linked! Change the game is a network of knowledge. Entrepreneurs, leaders, executives, managers, controllers, civil servants, researchers, journalists, consultants, free agents, and artists meet within the Initiative. Some own businesses. Some work at companies, governmental agencies, non governmental organizations, non profit organizations, universities, research labs, media, local & world communities. Some have studied business, sociology, psychology, history, philosophy, communication, informatics, mathematics, biology, or arts. Some simply learn a life long. Everybody who wants to share information and recombine ideas is invited to be part of this open knowledge project. We want to facilitate results in research and science in interrelation with business strategies and models leading to innovative concepts and applications for scientists, practitioners, companies, organizations and societies at large equally.
Create the new! Innovation without ethics is blind. Ethics without innovation is lame. Change the Game is business innovation integrating moral intentions. Innovation in combination with ethics creates values, profitability, and sustainability.
Be inspired! The unique inspiration by sharing our ideas, information and knowledge leads to new perspectives. Change the game will inspire innovations in economic logic, leadership and management, organizational design and strategies, information and communication technologies, business intelligence, future markets, products and services.
Create profit for life! Change the game wants to create profit, but it is focused on the quality of life. Our aim is to share, create and innovate knowledge for social, ecological and economic sustainability. We combine business intelligence, science and business ethics to create intelligent business.
We are a living online- and real world-community of leading thinkers and business leaders.
The Change the Game Initiative is organized on three interdependent levels:
The name of the Initiative was inspired by a quotation of Joel A. Barker in his book Paradigms - The Business of Discovering the Future: "Don´t wait for the trends to develop. Instead, watch for people messing with the rules, because that is the earliest sign of significant change. And, when the rules change, the whole world can change."
We invite you to mess with us with the rules, be one of those innovators who lead to significant change!
