Mindful apps model human thinking as part of the business process of interest, use context, and deliver intelligence in the moment to augment the capacity of employees to conduct knowledge work. Mindful apps present information to users based on thinking patterns.
Mindflows are goal-driven thinking patterns—such as comparing, evaluating, and summarizing—used by anyone engaged in complex analysis and decision making. The journey to the goal potentially has many paths and unfolds in iterative divergence-convergence patterns.
The future of enterprise apps is to blend human and software intelligence by extending beyond workflows to mindflows and thereby bring human thinking (and humans) into the enterprise business process that is supported by apps.
