Even though, or perhaps as a consequence of the fact that we have unprecedented knowledge in the world today, many carry the assumption that the only organization capable of solving the world’s unique and pressing problems of the 21st century is the government. Yet, this presentation argues that government cannot and will not solve these problems with a model of governance that was designed to deal with the less global problems of past centuries. Instead, we need a new paradigm of leadership for the 21st century.
