Management 2.0 - What is really new?

Hello dear MoonShots!

We all have something in common, otherwise this group wouldn't have drawn us in, would it?

It is probably more "re-innovate" than "re-invent" the current flow of business and opensource is one of the drivers of today's most successful iniatives such as Wikipedia, Linux and building up new projects with diverse and distant project group -due to innovative use of the internet:-)

Even though this group is based in Dresden - it will focus on spreading across the globe based on the true believe in OpenSource - OpenContent - OpenEconomy

You are most welcome in joining.



PS.: If you have issues to be solved and yet your consultant hasn't given you the answers or advice that is useful over a longer time scale, then sharing your question here with others and let the swarm intelligence find the best way:-)

Thanks a lot for your encouraging words :-)

The forthcoming Global Entrepreneurship Week, starting 16th of November could be another global point of entry to start. What do you and others think?

Thanks again for your continuing work with Management 2.0. I think there's a lot that can be achieved through groups like this. If my dream were to come true, we would one day find a Wikipedia entry that traced some significant human advance to a conversation that started in one of the groups on Moon Shots.

For instance, working with a colleague of mine in New Orleans, with interests coming from the Eastern Caribbean to China, we are attempting a pilot project to build "Growth Base Stations." We see these transportable facilities as crucial technical component in an emergent global system of trade, we call it Managed Value Trade. Another missing technology component is an appropriate aircraft to plug isolated populations into the global containerized air cargo system.

Our hypothesis is that "Trade" is the key to sustainable growth -both social and economic. The current technology and trade policies fall short of being able to effectively connect needs with quotidian resources. This is partially a problem of transport and partially a problem of knowledge. Failures in both these areas has left us with a world in which 2/3rds of the world's population is effectively disconnected from the resources they need to grow and prosper.

In the meantime, the other third is curtailing its own production of needed goods and services purportedly due to a lack of demand. We have to be smarter than that! There must be more than one way to understand the problem and to formulate a solution. We hope efforts like Moon Shots are one way to see some small part of the solution emerge.

All over the world minds are driving toward solutions to seemingly intractable problems. Every now and then, there's a 'real' solution.

I view the 'miracle in Copiapo, Chile' as one such example. Weeks ago, nearly every reasonable person on Earth, many of them mining experts believed those 33 miners would die in that hole, a half-mile beneath the surface of the Earth. In a matter of weeks, technology was assembled in new ways to accomplish a task never before attempted. No one know how many people the world pushed ideas forward, nor how many of those ideas were discounted. Somehow, a set of ideas and actions advanced and won sufficient confidence from people with effective responsibility, to try and do the impossible.

We don't have the benefit of a riveting global event. We have folks like you, Ralf, who seem excited and eager to find and do something difficult. Thanks.

DresdenLabs - the home of LockSchuppen

We are welcoming supporters, investors, creative minds and entrepreneurs full of passion to make great things happen.

Are you with us?

LockSchuppen - it is CoWorking with a knowledge & people capacity visualization. The Intelligent CoWorking so to say, as a friend named it yesterday.

A way to foster city prosperation? What is your approach to engage citizens as they are architects, lawyers, designers, sociologists, .....?

Management 2.0 - does it happen naturally? Definitely not - would you change your actual habits just because somebody told you? I am not!

So changing into the new age of management will only happen step by step. The question will be: how do we go forward step by step together in a direction?

One stone for crossing the river of unknown from the management 1.0 side to the management 2.0 side is that we as a collaborative and heterogenous CoWorking tribe offer you a fresh and different view on your business issues.

Do you think that could help you?

.... just drop me a message and we can arrange an online conversation to talk about it a bit more.

Best regards, Ralf

We have gone into operation with LockOffice and we would like to invite all interested parties to get in contact - physically or virtually. Both means are great vehicles to get to know each other through conversations.

Have a great day tomorrow and a Happy New Year to all.

Hi Lucy, CoWorking is providing an open space where things can happen as people can play out their personal strengths (in the context of business and customer value). Entrepreneurs instead of doing their own stuff do it in a community of coworkers, increasing the collective knowledge building up the power to move things.
Comment by Lucy Garrick on October 20, 2009 at 19:32

Thanks for inviting me to this group. Can we talk about what you say more mean about what you mean by co-working? How is it different than collaboration and co-creating.

Also, I would like to share my latest blog post: Social Media Collaboration, Open, Closed or Somewhere In Between.

I welcome comments and questions.

just have come back from interview on LockSchuppen and CoWorking with German newspaper, TAZ..

There seems to be a rising interest in the field of CoWorking as the events of the past weeks have shown.

What are the activities in your area in this field?

Initiatives LockSchuppen is already actively communicating with:

What are your connections into the "new business world" and CoWorking?
