Futures of Automation !? – Futures for our foot-, hand-, and mindprints

Filed under: Uncategorized — Heiner Benking @ 11:25 am

I am reporting today from the Daimler Annual Meeting of Daimler will be held on April 8, 2009, at the Messe Berlin, in Berlin, Germany.   For me it is like a dejy vue of topics dear to me in the nearly 80ies as a management cosnultant here at the ICC when it was just opened here in Berlin and we had the WCGA looking into visualisation and mangement, and in the early 90thwhen we were with UN stateplanners in Beijing and were discussing national and sectoral strategies for countriesand how to bring appropriate technologies for the building and transportation sectors to anchor chountries and “developing countries!

The proposals and answers have to do with the change in mindsets or metal models and attitudes, not júst footsprints, handprints, and mindprints… – and not just on how to communicate “rebound effects”. Maybe visit:, and

I feel the issue why our colleague Hualin Guo  in China did not succeed or why new and “out-of-the-box” thinking and acting – even when appealing nwords like “glocal” were created at that incident (see Manfed Lange here in the Wikipedia) and why new thinking is ignored – not attact ! and what that means for the much needed “old&new thinking“.
