Anciently, (though not quite prehistorically) in what we now call the Lawlerzoic period, the continuum was the tool of choice. For example, leadership was framed in terms of task oriented to people oriented leaders.

Our Evolution

As Port’s students evolved and grew more sophisticated, during what historians now call the Rickasic period, 2x2 matrix models walked and then ruled the earth.

Finally, as students reached the zenith of intellectual development and evolution, a period that modern writers label the 3G period, 3D boxed out the simple and matrixed minded to extinction, and complex contingency dominated the modern landscape!

The legacy and our place in the world
The Legacy and Our Place in the World

  • The greatest challenges faced by the students of the enlightened 3G period were not the 3D theoretical models but the 3D identity framework.

  • The Lawlerzoic and Rickasic periods had left a complex 3D identity legacy.

  • On one dimension was how research was done--methods. They ranged from “wild & crazy” things like ethnography to “straight laced too tight” approaches like surveys.

  • Another dimension was what was researched--content. Content ranged from out in “left field” to “main stream.”

  • The third dimension was the volume of research published. Volume ranged from an article published once in a “blue moon” to “every 2nd Tuesday.”

  • 3Gers struggled with their place in the world. Was one a wild, left, blue mooner, or a straight, main, 2nd Tuesdayer? Or some other combination?

Conclusion
Conclusion

  • The top of mind issues and challenges for 3Gers had less to do with scholarship and more to do with identity.

  • Consequently, the legacy of the Lawlerzoic and Rickasic periods extended beyond scholarship. The greater legacy was identity perplexia for 3Gers and beyond.

  • Unfortunately, 3Gers leave little legacy except that they can say they were the last--the last to work personally with the man who started it all.

  • And that legacy--Port’s legacy--will continue long after many in this room have gone the way of the early Porter student dinosaurs.
