Hi, I'm Michael Yacavone.

I'm a humanist, experimentalist, and whole systems strategist.

It goes without saying that the interconnections of the world are transforming the work of people and institutions. As a guiding philosophy, I believe success requires moving from a mental model of managing stocks to one of managing flows – from thinking about fixed quantities to thinking about rates of change – and that business collaboration and design around these systemic flows demands vastly increased cooperation.

What I Care About

For fun, I enjoy experimenting with the psychoacoustics of high-resolution audio systems, and optimizing everything in sight for better human experience. I'm also the husband of a beautiful, generous, and loving woman who is a professor of sociology and social psychology, so I enjoy convivial conversation.

Spreading the Word

People say nice things when working together…
