James L. Ritchie-Dunham

ISC President

My vision for ISC’s potential: 

Looking out thirty years, I believe a completely different set of agreements can exist among all peoples, agreements in which people can strive towards their own deeper potential. I believe that we will look back to 2014 as a time when the work of a few began to support the emergence of this new set of agreements, in critical, high-leverage ways, and that the Institute for Strategic Clarity played a key role in that work. It will have been through the “naming” of the foundations of the new agreements, what we now call ecosynomics, that people began to identify what they were learning and to connect with each other in support of the new agreements.

My recent professional work and key accomplishments:

Over the past decade, I have bridged the world of practice and the world of academia. In practice, as a partner in a consultancy (SDSG then GEP), I have supported leaders, in organizations across business, government, civil society, and global networks, in bringing greater strategic clarity to their large-scale social changes. In academia, as president of the Institute for Strategic Clarity and adjunct faculty member at the ITESM and Harvard, I have explored and documented the foundations of strategy, large-scale social change, and ecosynomics, as well as teaching graduate classes on strategic design and modeling.

My main interests and other voluntary activities:

When not hanging out with my wife Leslie, I am playing with my kids Jackie and Conor. To be active in their school community, I served for many years on the board. I have also served on the board of the Wimberley Art Institute, and been active with local charitable groups.

Vibrancy s founder, Ritchie-Dunham, PhD., an entrepreneur, advisor, and academic researcher, named the emerging science of abundance-based agreements Ecosynomics and wrote a book of the same name, Ecosynomics: The Science of Abundance. Based about his over 20 years of analysis, encounter, plus knowledge using groups of differing compositions at all degrees of vibrancy, he has built a framework rooted inside economics and also the sciences of human contracts. But, not based about scarcity, Ritchie-Dunham s foundation takes a preliminary presumption of wealth along with a wider see of the human being. His analysis showed which groups beginning with this basically different supposition, not just function at better degrees of potency, efficiency, plus innovation, however, love what they are doing too! In 2011, based on his observations, he created a survey to test these ideas. The survey, taken by over 2,200 people in ninety countries, and the data told an interesting story. In some of the groups, survey participants experienced total scarcity (on a continuum from scarce to vibrant), in others some scarcity and some vibrancy, and in still others they experienced deep vibrancy. Participants indicated that in the groups where they experienced greater vibrancy, they also experienced a higher quality in the group s leadership. Participants also cited that where they experienced greater overall vibrancy, they experienced a greater score on the vibrancy assessment across all key measures. Ritchie-Dunham started the organization and research with the vision that putting a name to this growing global movement would help to bring together higher vibrancy groups already working around the world, giving them a common framework and language both to understand each other across industries, vibrancy levels, and cultures, as well as to better understand what they are doing to create and maintain their own higher levels of vibrancy and success.
