By: Dr. Charles Petrie - Senior Research Scientist, Stanford CS Logic Group ------ Title: The Conscious Organization ----- Abstract: Can organizations could evolve from being designed to run efficiently routine processes into organizations that respond to changing conditions? This would require some kind of "attention" mechanism to be built-in to the company. Such a mechanism or process would not only notice changes but focus resources on the appropriate response to the change. This is the current function of a CEO, but can we improve upon this model, or at least offer an "attention prosthesis"? What are the possibilities, as well as the barriers to overcome in implementation?
