Conversations with Experts, Present & Future: Biomimicry Pt. 3 w/ Arndt Pechstein and Giles Hutchins

Highlighted often was the importance of using life systems thinking practically and effectively and not falling into the same trap of mechanistic thinking as we have so often in past iterations.


For our 3rd and final part on experts within biomimicry, our Editorial Content Editor Jordan Thorne brought both Arndt and Giles together for a joint discussion on all things biomimicry.

Arndt Pechstein holds a PhD in neuroscience and has expert backgrounds in Biomimicry, Design Thinking, Agile, Exponential Organizations, and digital business models. As an initiator of the Hybrid Thinking approach, he coaches and consults on change & transformation strategies to help organizations in their digital and agile transition and toward innovative business models.

Giles Hutchins is a speaker, author, strategist, and coach. After 25 years in business, formerly as a management consultant, he now specializes in applying living systems logic to leadership and organizational development.

We asked both experts what their understanding of biomimicry is and what the implications of biomimicry are when applied to real-life scenarios. We got an understanding of how they apply their own understandings of biomimicry to their own work and in helping others.

Highlighted often was the importance of using life systems thinking practically and effectively and not falling into the same trap of mechanistic thinking as we have so often in past iterations. It is key to commit wholly to applying the knowledge we get from nature and living systems and not merely using basic thinking as another tool or best practice to have at our disposal.

Both experts spoke to the importance of using this moment of society-wide change brought on and accelerated by COVID-19 to alter the way we approach problems and implement new and improved methods of thinking.
