About Sir Ken Robinson talk “Bring on the learning revolution!” (posted by Fabien Villard)

An amazing, and funny, TED talk from Feb 2010

“Innovation is hard because it means doing something that people don’t find very easy for the most part. It means challenging what we take for granted, things that we think are obvious. The great problem for reform or transformation is the tirany of common sense. [...] It’s very hard to know, by the way, what it is you take for granted. And the reason is that you take it for granted.”

“So I think we have to change metaphors. We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people. We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recongnize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process, it’s an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development, all you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they would begin to flourish.”

This is very compatible with principles expressed in the Enterprise Transformation Manifesto.
