From the Ted Talk by Jack Dangermond: How a geospatial nervous system could help us design a better future

Unscramble the Blue Letters

JD: It's very deliberate. Again, when I was a student, I got the vision or thghout that we could actually do entnnremavoil planning and design and development better by thinking holistically. Bringing all the factors together. And when I launched Esri, we were siantrtg to do projects better because we could itgnrteae all of the factors into the design projects. Then as we started building systems, they were first small, focused systems for a particular department, like an engineering department in a city or a planning dentmreapt, or a forest mgmneaeant organization or an oil company. They could do their work better by considering all the factors. Then — And that transformed the way projects were done, and it transformed human activities in these different departments. From there, we settrad to move on to the idea of transforming entire organizations. This meant etirne enterprises. So from ptojrces to systems to organizational transformation where you could actually have organizations by intention look at all the factors. And we have so many examples of this.

Original Text

JD: It's very deliberate. Again, when I was a student, I got the vision or thought that we could actually do environmental planning and design and development better by thinking holistically. Bringing all the factors together. And when I launched Esri, we were starting to do projects better because we could integrate all of the factors into the design projects. Then as we started building systems, they were first small, focused systems for a particular department, like an engineering department in a city or a planning department, or a forest management organization or an oil company. They could do their work better by considering all the factors. Then — And that transformed the way projects were done, and it transformed human activities in these different departments. From there, we started to move on to the idea of transforming entire organizations. This meant entire enterprises. So from projects to systems to organizational transformation where you could actually have organizations by intention look at all the factors. And we have so many examples of this.
