Designing for a Regenerative Future

We sit down with you and your team and co- design of your regenerative future using the principles of Holistic Management and the Regenerative Framework. As we are dealing with living systems the key difference in our approach is the use of living system design based on the foundation key insights and principles from living systems science.

This Regenerative Framework serves as:

• A Design Framework as a way to design using living system principles
• A Process Framework to reflect the flow within the organisation with the emphasis first on being clear on our purpose and what we want our entity to be
• A Decision-making Framework so decisions can be made with the whole in mind and for the health of the whole, not just the problem, issue or outcome which is top of mind and may not be in the bests interests of the whole

Regenerative Framework

The emphasis is to first set the conditions for health which then inform the entire decision-making process and generation of outcomes. The organisational context defines the boundary within which the entity is to operate or the whole, the expectations of the members of the whole and how they behave to each other.  These behaviours enable or disable organisational health.

The elements of organisational design (or ecosystem processes in the case of land) put health at the core and create the conditions for potential of land and/or people to show up.  The structures created to support system health are designed first to enable the health of the system and then as a platform for the collective work.

Designing without such a framework with focus only on the planning, tools and outcomes becomes a mechanistic design process and does not consider the principles of a living system.

By applying these principles to the design of our systems, be that ourselves and families, farms, businesses, organisations, communities, and government, we create the conditions within those entities which deliver health, abundance and resilience to all parts/members and potential beyond what can be predicted. The structures we create to complete the work, the work plans and the work itself is then completed first with the health of the system in mind and then the specific outcomes of that work.

EOV (Ecological Outcome Verification) or OHI (Organisational Health Index) provides the information to ensure the design process is relevant to your context.
