With so much change happening in the world right now, it can be difficult not to get caught up in the immediate effects without considering which dominos will fall later down the line. It's the beauty of hindsight mixed with the pragmatism of forward planning.

Also known as second and third-order thinking. In this episode, David and Mark discuss the theory in light of the current coronavirus pandemic and question: what will the second and third-order effects be on the way we work?
Sharing examples from their own history running an agency, where focusing too much on the first order had a detrimental effect in other ways. Plus, looking at how remote work and social distancing will affect the future office, where people choose to live and how access to WiFi could even change how we perceive each other.
