The constructal law is a shout from the rooftops: Everything that flows and moves generates designs that evolve to survive (to live) (…)
that nothing operates in isolation; every flow system is part of a bigger flow system, shaped by and in service to the world around it.
The design of flow systems must evolve to enhance the flows within the system or they will die.
Auszüge aus Design in Nature: How the Constructal Law Governs Evolution in Biology, Physics, Technology, and Social Organization, zusammengefasst von John Hagel, der wieder einmal betont, wie sich derzeit Wissen von Silos zu Flows verlagert. Er selbst führt es in folgendem Fazit zusammen:
The bottom line
So, what does this mean for all of us? The message is simple and compelling. If we are not enhancing flow, we will be marginalized, both in our personal and professional life. If we want to remain successful and reap the enormous rewards that can be generated from flows, we must continually seek to refine the designs of the systems that we spend time in to ensure that they are ever more effective in sustaining and amplifying flows. As the authors observe, “it is not love or money that makes the world go round but flow and design”
