We Are Nuts!

"People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do." - Steve Jobs

Our Why

We live in a time of unresolved problems and for many people, out of reach opportunities and yet we are doing the same things year after year.

We need to become better ancestors to future generations by exploring the path of systems innovation, taking action and learning what works to dissolve problems and reveal possibilities.

The future depends on the crazy ones cultivating the ideas today that will produce the innovative, equitable and prosperous communities of tomorrow.

Our What

Doing Community is a creation space that helps impact teams learn faster together through action, feedback, and reflection and provides an organizational infrastructure that facilitates connection, coordination and collaboration.

A creation space:

  • Organizes regular gatherings of impact teams.

  • Provides opportunities to form teams of teams to collaborate on complex initiatives.

  • Offers education and training opportunities.

  • Frequently publishes what we are learning.

  • Provides and supports the organizational infrastructure.

Impact teams are network-centric organizations that:

    • Are organized as small cells of 3-9 people.

    • Develop deep, trust-based relationships between members.

    • Focus on finding pragmatic actions that will have a local impact while making progress toward our goals.

    • Experiment with many kinds of independent, autonomous and self-directed initiatives to learn what works best.

    • Connect with and between existing community resources.

The organizational infrastructure:

    • Facilitates asynchronous and real-time conversations.

    • Implements Systems Innovation, Strategic Doing & Objectives & Key Results (OKRs).

    • Organizes the teams' time using shared calendars.

    • Maintains a directory of community resources.
