Defining a Regenerative Commerce System

Regenerative Commerce is a system based on a broader understanding of what it means to develop technology and business. I propose that, using these principles, a region’s economic system can revitalize itself and perform beyond today’s assumptions and expectations. The following represent shifts in awareness of the models we use to create and innovate within enterprise. Note that a ‘shift’ means we are including new information that expands existing models and does not mean that we are replacing them.

A Shift …

1:  A Shift From Single -> To Triple Bottom Line Management

Developing Evolved Organizing STRUCTURES

2:  A Shift From Building Mechanistic Systems -> To Growing Living Wholes

Advancing Technological PATTERNS

3:  A Shift From Linear Sequencing -> To Nonlinear Cyclic Closed Loops

An Integration of Value-Web PROCESSES

.’s long term objective is to create a global network of innovation learning centers. Each interdependent center will incubate innovative technologies and companies that can work for a our emerging globally conscious community.

This concept, known as ‘Regenerative Commerce‘, will act as an integrating framework for incorporating principles of sustainable innovation for the realization of business products and services that work for a post-industrial society.

In the near future, the PRINCIPLE PRACTICE POLICY model ( 1 * 2 * 3 * 4 * 5) will be integrated into the Regenerative Commerce concept.

Here, the policy body acts as a ‘governor’ that monitors the effectiveness of predetermined guiding principles via the principle body, and provides feedback to the overall system so that adjustments can be made as the chosen principles play out in a practical way within the practicing body.

What is missing in today’s model for community design and development, based on this 3P’s model?
