Slide 1: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za Studium Ad Prosperandum BMI BMI Voluntas in Conveniendum •• BUILDING RESEARCH BUILDING RESEARCH STRATEGY CONSULTING STRATEGY CONSULTING UNIT cc UNIT cc Reg. No. 2002/105109/23 Towards Reinventing the Strategic Forum through a profound new Paradigm Dr. Llewellyn B. Lewis March 2009 1 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 2: THE LANGUAGE OF COMPLEXITY www.leadershipreinvention.co.za  The pace of change has accelerated way beyond the comfort zone of most people  The rules that guided decisions in the past, are no longer reliable  The elements of change that are driving these momentous shifts, are based on the fundamental dimensions of the universe itself.  Time, space and mass (Stan Davis : 2001) 2 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 3: THE LANGUAGE OF COMPLEXITY  Connectivity is putting everyone and everything on-line in one way or another and has led to the death of distance, a shrinking of space.  Intangible value of all kinds like service and information, is growing explosively, reducing the importance of tangible mass.  Connectivity, Speed and Intangibles – the derivatives of time, space and mass – are blurring the rules and redefining our businesses and our lives.  What we see is a melt-down of all traditional boundaries. 3 (Stan Davis : 2001) © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 4: THE LANGUAGE OF COMPLEXITY  Since the economy and business are part of the universe, time, space and mass are the fundamental dimensions of them as well.  Until recently, this notion was too abstract to be very useful.  Now we are realising the extraordinary power this insight has to the business world.  Almost instantaneous communication and computation are shrinking time and focusing us on speed. (Stan Davis : 2001) 4 © BMI-BRSCU

Slide 6: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za 5 Years Facebook I pod Cell Phone 38 Years Mark Zuckerberg Born May 14, 1984 (age 24) White Plains, New York, U.S. Occupation: Founder and CEO of Facebook Net worth ▲ $1.5 billion 6 7 Years 14 Years Television 89 Years Telephone © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 7: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za 7 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 8: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za The Net Generation’s modus operandi is networking. Young people dominate many of the huge on-line communities, from Facebook to MySpace, where millions of youths socialise and collaborate to do everything from evaluating companies’ products and services to providing entertainment and services on their own. Zuckerberg is intensely focused on connecting the entire world on Facebook – only now his vision goes well beyond the site as a digital phone book. It becomes the equivalent of the phone itself: It is the main tool people use to communicate for work and pleasure. It is the central place where members organise parties, store pictures, find jobs, watch videos and play games. It will be the place where people live their digital lives - - 8 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 9: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za The principles of Wikinomics is based on mass collaboration which is changing how companies and societies harness knowledge and capability to innovate and create value. It affects just about every sector of society and every aspect of management. A new kind of business is emerging – one that opens its doors to the world, co-innovates with everyone (especially customers), shares resources that were previously closely guarded and harnesses the power of mass collaboration. Don Tapscott: Author of Wikinomocs At BMI-BRSCU we believe that information must be strategically empowering, therefore the old secrecy paradigm of “knowledge is power and must be held close to the chest” must be challenged. If openness, transparency, freedom, flexibility, expansiveness, engagement and access are the language of the new net empowered world, then these are the values that we must espouse and practice. 9 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 10: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za 2009 is the year in which we will develop and REINVENT our Strategic Forum and eclipse the old top down way of information management. The Difference?  With our Web site we intend to launch vibrant communities;  We discard the building of walled gardens of information. We intend to build a public square;  We intend to innovate internally and with our users;  We won’t jealously guard our data and software interfaces. We intend to share them with everybody. 10 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 11: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za The New Web’s cutting edge phenomena and themes.  The Blogosphere;  Collective Intelligence;  The New Public Squares;  Emergent or serendipitous innovation The Blogosphere: The World’s biggest Coffeehouse  The blogging phenomenon points the way to the most profound changes the new Web will wreak on the economy;  Blogs have been describes as the biggest coffeehouse on earth;  They capture a moment-to-moment picture of people’s thoughts and feelings about things happening right now, turning the web from a collection of static documents into a running conversation;  At BMI-BRSCU we intend to develop Blogging Patforms for all our Associates and to encourage strategic dialogue on them in open system, Coffeehouse. 11 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 12: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za Collective Intelligence.  The aggregate knowledge that emerges from the decentralised choices and judgements of groups of independent participants;  James Surowiecki calls it “The Wisdom of Crowds” and traces the application of collective wisdom across domains such as science, politics and business;  The ability to pool the knowledge of users in self-organising fashion demonstrates how mass collaboration is turning the new web into something not completely unlike a global brain;  Smart companies are now harnessing this potential to develop powerful new business models and systems;  By sharing just about all that we do at BMI-BRSCU (reports, Powerpoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets and models) some protected and some open, we invite our customers to partner with us in engaging with the information and to add value where they can, but in particular to use it in innovative ways to improve their strategies and competitive positioning. 12 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 13: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za The New Public Squares. We want to position our Strategic Forum like a public square (on the web of course), a vibrant meeting place where our customers interact, engage, question, make suggestions, extract and add value and come back for rich and engaging life long learning experiences, which is not only information based but holistic and systemic. It is based on the fundamental premise that relationships are, after all, the only thing that cannot be commoditised. 13 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 14: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za Emergence and Serendipitous Innovation.  Another consequence of mass collaboration among people is emergence – the creation of attributes, structures and capabilities that are not inherent to any single node in the network.  We want to explore the new economics of intellectual property that is emerging, where increasingly, and paradoxically it is being discovered that maintaining and defending a proprietary system of intellectual property often cripples the ability to create value. Smart firms are treating intellectual property like a mutual fund – they manage a balanced portfolio of IP assets, some protected and some shared.  In applying some of the new Wikinomics principles to reinventing our business of information arbitrage, we want to move away from the restrictive paradigm of walled gardens of content, proprietary databases and closed source software.  It is of course based on a new cultural orientation of trust and respect for each others’ property. It is about making clear that we are open and that we are not building walled gardens of content or trying to hold our clients hostage in any way. 14 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 15: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za As stated by Tapscott and Williams (Wikinomics: 2007) the Web is no longer about idly surfing and passively reading, listening or watching. It’s about peering: sharing, socializing, collaborating and, most of all, CREATING within loosely coupled communities. 15 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 16: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za NEW BUSINESS RULE FOR COMPETITIVENESS: COLLABORATE OR PERISH!  The coming together of a global platform for collaboration, a generation that grew up collaborating, and a global economy that enables new forms of economic cooperation is creating the conditions for a perfect storm that will drive deep changes in the strategy and architecture of firms;  The old, ironclad vessels of the industrial era will sink under the crashing waves, while firms that create highly nimble and networked structures and connect to external ideas and energies will gain the buoyancy they require to survive;  Companies that anticipate and lead these changes will win important advantages in their industries. 16 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 17: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za NEW BUSINESS RULE FOR COMPETITIVENESS: COLLABORATE OR PERISH!  At BMI-BRSCU we want to harness all the latest ideas and tools, such as sharing of our data base, some open and some closed, to encourage added value contributions;  We want to develop a new approach to Stakeholder Collaboration through blogging and instant messaging;  We want to create a net-based version of the Public Square or market place for ideas, innovations and uniquely qualified minds that thrive on collaboration;  The Website must be a vibrant meeting place where our customers interact, engage, question, make suggestions, extract and add value and come back for rich and engaging life long learning experiences, which is not only information based but holistic and systemic; 17 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 18: THE STRATEGIC FORUM www.strategicforum.co.za NEW BUSINESS RULE FOR COMPETITIVENESS: COLLABORATE OR PERISH! We want to create a different kind of professional and social networking environment based on Facebook where members can list their experience, expertise, interests and the issues they are most concerned about;  Subscribers can link to other members’ profiles when they share similar problems, issues or interests and these can create connections that lead to new friendships or projects; These are some of the ideas for REINVENTING our Strategic Forum and for taking it to a new level;  Subscribers are invited to collaborate and share ideas with us in this journey. 18 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 19: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za 19 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 20: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za The World Café is a conversational process based on a set of integrated design principles that reveal a deeper living network pattern through which we co-evolve our collective future. As a conversational process, the World Café is an innovative yet simple methodology for hosting conversations about questions that matter. These conversations link and build on each other as people move between groups, cross-pollinate ideas, and discover new insights into the questions or issues that are most important in their life, work, or community. As a process, the World Café can evoke and make visible the collective intelligence of any group, thus increasing people’s capacity for effective action in pursuit of common aims. 20 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 21: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za The integrated design principles have been distilled over the years as a guide to intentionally harnessing the power of conversation for business and social value. When used in combination, they provide useful guidance for anyone seeking creative ways to foster authentic dialogue in which the goal is thinking together and creating actionable knowledge. As a living network pattern, the World Café refers to a living network of conversations that is continually co-evolving as we explore questions that matter with our family, friends, colleagues, and community. The metaphor of the "World as Café" helps us notice these invisible webs of dialogue and personal relationships that enable us to learn, create shared purpose, and shape lifeaffirming futures together. In this sense, the World Café is also a growing global community of people, groups, organizations, and networks using World Café principles and processes to evoke collective intelligence and link it to effective action in pursuit of common aims. 21 © BMI-BRSCU

Slide 32: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za 32 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 33: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za There is an old saying that if you don't know where you are going any road will get you there. When you have a clear idea of the what and why of your Café then the how becomes much easier. Here are a few questions to ask yourself and those helping you plan: What is the topic or issue we want to address or explore? Who needs to be invited to participate in this conversation? Who represents both the conventional and the unconventional wisdom? How long do we have for the inquiry? What line(s) of inquiry do we want to pursue? What themes are most likely to be meaningful and stimulate creativity? What is the best outcome we can envision? How might we design a path toward that outcome? Set The Context 33 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 34: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za Create Hospitable Space When we ask people where they have experienced their most significant conversations, nearly everyone recalls sitting around a kitchen or dining room table. There is a easy intimacy when gathering at a small table, that most of us immediately recognize. When you walk into a room and see it filled with café tables you know that you are not in for your usual business meeting. 34 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 35: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za Clarify the Purpose We Pay attention early to the reason we are bringing people together. Knowing the purpose of your meeting enables you to consider which participants need to be there and what parameters are important to achieve your purpose. Create a Hospitable Space Café hosts around the world emphasize the power and importance of creating a hospitable space — one that feels safe and inviting. When people feel comfortable to be themselves, they do their most creative thinking, speaking, and listening. In particular, consider how your invitation and your physical setup contribute to creating a welcoming atmosphere. 35 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 36: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za Explore Questions that Matter Finding and framing questions that matter to those who are participating in the Café is an area where thought and attention can produce profound results. Our Café may only explore a single question, or several questions may be developed to support a logical progression of discovery throughout several rounds of dialogue. In many cases, Café conversations are as much about discovering and exploring powerful questions as they are about finding effective solutions. Encourage Everyone's Contribution As leaders we are increasingly aware of the importance of participation, but most people don’t only want to participate, they want to actively contribute to making a difference. It is important to encourage everyone in our meeting to contribute their ideas and perspectives, while also allowing anyone who wants to participate by simply listening to do so. 36 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 37: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za Connect Diverse Perspectives The opportunity to move between tables, meet new people, actively contribute your thinking, and link the essence of your discoveries to everwidening circles of thought is one of the distinguishing characteristics of the Café. As participants carry key ideas or themes to new tables, they exchange perspectives, greatly enriching the possibility for surprising new insights. Listen for Insights and Share Discoveries Through practicing shared listening and paying attention to themes, patterns and insights, we begin to sense a connection to the larger whole. After several rounds of conversation, it is helpful to engage in a whole group conversation. This offers the entire group an opportunity to connect the overall themes or questions that are now present. 37 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 38: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za After each table has had the opportunity to share their insights, the whole group may wish to take a few minutes of silent reflection and consider: What is emerging here? If there was a single voice in the room, what would it be saying? What deeper questions are emerging as a result of these conversations? Do we notice any patterns and what do those patterns point to, or how do they inform us? "Share Collective Discoveries" What do we now see and know as a result of these conversations? 38 © BMI-BRSCU

Slide 40: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za Shaping our futures through conversations that matter Our scenarios for building activity to 2020 is shown in the following slides. Give us your view. Just draw on the graphic the way you see the building and construction industry evolve to 2020. Our view is that the next upturn will commence in January 2010 and continue until May 2015 (64 months). This will be followed by a short duration mild downturn to December 2017 (20 months) and then an upturn through to December 2010 (23 months) (but it could last until 2022). More important - what is your view? 40 © BMI-BRSCU

Slide 44: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za 44 The home of Jenny and Llewellyn is an ideal venue for a Knowledge Cafe. The environment is spacious and pleasant with a view of the garden and the sound of water splashing into the pool from the conche in the mouth of the brass mermaid. It is a place of tranquility and beauty providing a background conducive to thought leadership and Socratic Dialogue, © BMI-BRSCU

Slide 46: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za At the Knowledge Cafe the conversation centred on the Scenario Outlook for the Building and Construction and Property Markets to 2020. The RISK AVERSE policies of the Banks EXCACERBATE the cycles: •When the House Price Index (HPI) rises Banks lend more freely leading to property speculation; •For existing Homeowners it is wonderful because they can trade up! •Then credit starts to become scarce as interest rates rise; •House prices drop, building activity declines; •Credit criteria of Banks become more stringent as they insist on lower Loan to Value (LTV) ratios and the National Credit Act suppresses demand. 46 © BMI-BRSCU

Slide 48: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za A possible scenario for Political Development: •Zuma Government will get Cosatu/Communist Party to toe the line; •Possibility that DA/COPE will merge in next election; •We don't understand the Black tribal culture; •The problem of Africa is TRIBALISM; •COPE is gathering middle-class Blacks, urbanised workers, lowincome people are less sophisticated, vote ANC regardless and don't know better. Cement usage is as follows: • Non Residential 20% • Residential 55% • Construction 25% •The CBA market research information indicates that production has decreased by 40% in response to reduced demand. This does not match the statistics on BPP and BC for 2008 versus 2007 (some 5% down in total); •However it could mean that the downturn has taken effect rapidly after the end of 2008, particularly in Clay Brick intensive segments like Flats and Townhouses and Dwellings > 80 m2. 48 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 49: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za 49 © BMI-BRSCU
Slide 50: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za  The Banks are becoming increasingly RISK AVERSE and are applying strict credit criteria like insisting on 20% deposit;  Some 40% of Mortgage Loan Applications are declined and this is a self fulfilling prophecy;  In the longer term affordability will increase because of lower interest rates and because salaries are increasing at double digit historically high inflation rates;  Therefore risk profile is declining;  The Middle Income demand for housing is large and growing - time is the big player.  A sign that mortgage advances are under stress is that impairments are escalating;  9% of the mortgage book are payments in arrears;  Mortgage advances are back to 2003 levels. 50 © BMI-BRSCU

Slide 53: THE STRATEGIC FORUM AND THE KNOWLEDGE CAFE www.strategicforum.co.za The creation of hospitable space is important in a successful knowledge cafe. The idea is to encourage strategic conversations that matter whilst establishing important network relationships in the process. This is best achieved around a Coffee Table where the contribution of everyone is valued. Some of the insights emerging out of the discussions: • Crime is the REAL KILLER. • The refusal of an entry visa to the Dalai Lama is an emotive issue - a lame excuse. • Taxi protests cause disruption (and is a blow to confidence). • There is denial, no accountability on the part of Taxi Operators to accept the responsibility for violence. • The same applies to BEE Companies - 1 out of 10 will accept responsibility for things that go wrong. 53 © BMI-BRSCU
