Bradford & Barthel, LLP is pleased to announce their partnership with Spherical Models, LLC. Headed up by Futurist and Chief Technology Officer - Eric Hunter, this business is a global futurist advisory built to focus on the future of human behavior, technology, business model evolutions and strategies for managing disruption.
Spherical Models teaches how to recognize, create, and leverage new business and process models in leading organizational change through the current reality of global business model disruption.
“Each collaboration point within varying aspects of business are intersecting and overlapping spheres of communication. The spherical model builds on itself, with continual workflow innovation potential.” - Eric Hunter, Futurist and CTO.
The key to implementing behavioral change through emerging disruptions such as: augmented/virtual realities, artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotic automation, hosted high performance/advanced scale and quantum computing while leveraging predictive analytics and resulting process modeling into our global busines strategies, international governmental strategies, climate evolution strategies, and our overall evolving way of life; lies within the thinking of what we call Spherical Models.
“Have you ever read the book Flatland, by Edwin Abbott?” This is a question we often ask audiences. For those that haven’t, it’s a book in part about a race of two dimensional creatures. At one point in time, a three dimensional creature in their midst is able to convince one of the two dimensional creatures to rise up out of three dimensions and experience the world in an entirely new perspective.
Successfully driving a future in behavioral change, and developing a strategy around leveraging emerging disruptions and the resulting business model innovations within global business strategy requires a similar change in perception.
It’s a different way of thinking, a different way of managing perception, and it’s something we’re beginning to understand and apply in businesses across the globe.
And as we do, we’ll wonder how we ever approached global business differently.
