  3. Alfonso Montuori & Gabrielle Donnelly (2013). Creative Inquiry and Scholarship: Applications and Implications in a Doctoral Degree. World Futures 69 (1):1 - 19.
    The doctoral dissertation is defined as an original contribution to a field. By definition, this makes the dissertation a creative product, and the result of a creative process. The creative process of doctoral work has historically not been highlighted. The same is true for education as a whole. While there is an increasing call for greater creativity in education, they remain aspirational. In this article we describe the underlying premises and some of the practices of a doctoral degree that has (...)

  5. Hillary Stephenson & Alfonso Montuori (2011). Creativity, Culture Contact, and Diversity. World Futures 66 (3):266-285.
    Recent trends in the understanding of culture contact, with concepts such as hybridization, cosmopolitanism, and cultural innovation, open up the possibility of a new understanding of human interaction. While the social imaginary is rich with images of conflict resulting from culture contact, images of creativity are far rarer. We propose the creation of an extensive research project to document cultural creativity, starting with obvious examples in the arts, and expanding into all areas of life in order to counteract the present (...)

  7. Riane Eisler & Alfonso Montuori (2007). Creativity, Society, and the Hidden Subtext of Gender: Toward a New Contextualized Approach. World Futures 63 (7):479 – 499.
    Conventional categories of creativity are being deconstructed after the so-called postmodern debate. This article takes this process deeper, to what we will show is the hidden subtext of gender underlying how creativity has been socially constructed. It also proposes a more contextualized approach to creativity that takes into account both its individual and social dimensions and how this relates to what Eisler (1987) has called a partnership rather than dominator model of society.

  10. Alfonso Montuori (2003). From Strategic Planning to Strategic Design: Reconceptualizing the Future of Strategy in Organizations. World Futures 59 (1):3 – 20.
    In this article I present an overview of critiques of strategic planning, focusing on their conceptualizations of the environment. I first outline the need for a more comprehensive understanding of the nature of the environment of strategy, and then outline some of the alternatives to strategic planning and their underlying bases in constructivism and the sciences of complexity. I conclude by arguing that Banathy's systems design methodology is eminently suited to the process of strategy formulation, and should be explored more (...)
