Mapping Ecosynomic Deviance and Impact Resilience

Leaders across all sectors have to address complex and large-scale social issues, as well as daily dysfunctional interactions

They find themselves severely constrained by the existing model of value capture and expression

Some leaders have a dramatically different and more successful perception of the value experienced and exchanged in human interactions

We are describing and framing how thousands of these innovative leaders, across the globe, are achieving much greater impact resilience and sustainable interactions




The Global Initiative will map, over the next five years, the social topography of the human agreements underlying the success of 5,000 positive ecosynomic deviants in 11 countries




[W]here we are [M]apping

The selected field sites maximize social-cultural-political diversity across the globe, where we have the support of local alliance members with ongoing projects

[W]hat we are [M]apping


What local-level agreement structures enable: greater engagement and choice; massive shifts in local-level agreements with multiple stakeholders; and greater impact resilience?


What generalizable and culture-specific factors differentiate positive and negative Ecosynomic deviance?


How do we scale the breadth and depth of the transformation of human agreements, within and across social systems?
