Joseph Jaworski and Otto Scharmer interviewed leaders from around the world in the research project ”Dialogue on Leadership” to explore and understand the inner process that leads to ”the source of creativity and renewal. Brian Arthur described to them the process that evolved into the internationally distributed ”U-Process.” The theory has been reproduced in the books Presence, as well as Theory U, to name two.

Brian Arthur Brian Arthur has been considered one of the world’s leading thinkers in complexity and economics (see link World Economic Forum). Also, he does one or more Nature Quests annually.
