Roger and Sue Mitchell have developed 2mt as their response to the need for people and organisations to bridge significant gaps in today’s world such as
- The cultural gap – between modern and postmodern approaches to understanding and communicating
- The organisational gap – between systemic thinking and appropriate ‘chaotic’ creativity
- The resource gap – between statutory providers, the voluntary sector and the changing needs of local communities
- The personal gap – between a settled, historical worldview and a pluralistic individualism
With a background in working with radical and socially relevant Christian initiatives, over 30 years they have developed penetrating insights into historical, social and cultural change and its effect on understanding and learning across all areas of society. At a practical level, this has usually included resolving the conflicts which arise when social change meets inflexible structure or systemic thinking. They are ideally equipped to resource fresh thinking, new learning communities and flexible organisational structures ‘suitable for tomorrow’.
