      KEYNOTE   6:00  MICHAEL VAN GESSEL Action: Transforming the Present

                       Assignments are more and more about transformation of the present. What exists
                       now is more than a great guide as to what ought to be. In real transformations old and
                       new merge and grow into a new whole where old and new can hardly be distinguished
                       from each other. What is important in these processes are the rules and strategies.
                       How does the new merge with the existing? How do they combine to inspire and
                       encourage the future? And how can they regulate the future without determining it?
