The Matrix Mindset

The Matrix Mindset is a way of thinking that LEF believes everyone needs to understand, even at a basic level, to help them work effectively in modern, digitally enabled companies.

Technology is such a fundamental part of how we all work and live today that it is no longer acceptable to abdicate all technology innovation to IT. Those with the business context must be better informed and able to understand the impact of potential technology choices, so they can work alongside IT to build a better technology enabled future.

Based on observations of working with a myriad of companies, The Matrix Mindset defines eight capabilities where organisations need to prepare their people for the disruptive, technology-rich future that we will all be part of. 

Learn how to embed this thinking into your people. Evaluate your current position using our simple assessment, and start the journey into the Matrix era.

Emerging Technology Director and Distinguished Engineer
Glen helps create 21st Century Humans. Technology is constantly reinventing itself and keeping pace is a long-term investment. In his role as Emerging Technology Director for the LEF, Glen is constantly exploring the emerging technology advances that will augment our lives, changing the way we think about everything. Glen takes these learnings and delivers them to customers in the form of the Digital Experience Lab, or Xlab, which is part of the 21st Century Human programme. This haptic learning experience helps customers build confidence and competence in a vast array of digital tools that are available to them today. Using these responsibly to augment our lives in a positive way is the outcome of the workshops he runs, tasking attendees to consider their current level of digital maturity and injecting ideas for personal development and improvement through a more responsible, competent use of digital. Glen also arranges Study Tours where he facilitates tours of global technology hubs, immersing customers in the technology they seek to understand the impact of better. A frequent speaker at customer and industry events, Glen also leads the 21st Century Human community, is a STEM ambassador, a distinguished engineer for DXC Technology, passionate about the environment, and a very average surfer.
