AIM Collaborative Enterprise: Anonymity, Mass Collaboration and the Social Organization

AIM Collaborative Enterprise: Anonymity, Mass Collaboration and the Social Organization | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
From the reading I was very interested in the successful CEMEX example from The Social Organization, where CEMEX “initiated a program called SHIFT that used social media to create a community around each of the company’s strategic initiatives” (Bradley & McDonald, 2011).I would be very interested in exploring the possibility of doing something similar in my organization, as we have five brewery locations – as well as a hundred remote employees around the United States – and engaging the entire company in discussions around sales, performance or production goals would most likely generate strong collaborative discussions.

Society 3.0: Roadmap for a Global Sharing Transformation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

When I quit my job as a corporate strategist in 2004 to pursue a new life based on sharing and collaboration, it was not the result of any external observation. It was something I felt in my bones — long hours, strained relationships, loss of a sense of place, and cutthroat competition were not making me happy, and I suspected neither were they contributing to a healthier world.

Call for Papers: Defining the Spatiality of Co-Creation, Collaboration and Peer Production in the Digital Age | Beyond The Beyond | Wired.com

Call for Papers: Defining the Spatiality of Co-Creation, Collaboration and Peer Production in the Digital Age | Beyond The Beyond | Wired.com | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

This session looks at novel models of creativity in reference to collaborative practices, co-creation and peer production focusing on their spatiality within a transglobal and digitally-fused environment. Within this context, creativity is understood as a synergy of spaces, practices and artifacts, interlinked in such a manner that their singularity(-ies) form an assemblage. We can consider creativity, and subsequent knowledge formation, as forms of social interaction rather than the outcomes of social activities. Whilst we commonly perceive creativity as the product of the individual artist, or creative ensemble, from this perspective creativity can also be considered an emergent phenomenon of communities, driving change and facilitating individual or ensemble creativity. Creativity can be a performative activity released when engaged through and by a community. Creativity, thus, can be also regarded as an emergent property of relations, of communities. As James Leach (2004), the British anthropologist, suggests creativity can be proposed as a collective becoming where the creation of new things, and the ritualized forms of exchange enacted around them, function to “create” individuals and bind them in social groups, thus “creating” the community they inhabit and generate new places in the landscape.

Human to Human (H2H) -- Collaboration is the New Competition - Huffington Post

Human to Human (H2H) -- Collaboration is the New Competition - Huffington Post | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Every day we're bombarded with evidence of our inability to solve issues from a collaborative standpoint. Nowhere is this more evident than within our political system. But the emergence and rapid growth of individuals and organizations who understand the benefits of collaboration over competition (and the results of a collective impact) are building a new business and societal infrastructure. This trend could bring about some promising solutions in more ways than one. And it isn't just about internal collaboration, which is important in itself, but of external collaboration between businesses.

Collaboration has been an industry buzz word for as long as I dare to remember. However, despite the hype, collaboration tools have on the whole under-delivered and underperformed. For a majority of users, collaboration platforms are low on usability, high on awkwardness and frequently fragmented.

Collaborative Pioneer: interview with Mar Alarcón, SocialCar - Collaborative Consumption

Collaborative Pioneer: interview with Mar Alarcón, SocialCar - Collaborative Consumption | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The P2P carsharing service was clear for us. The biggest challenge was to design the right process and tools to ensure safety and warranties for all our users, car owners and car drivers. The P2P carsharing was a totally unknown service in Spain when we launched. After hard work we reached the right flow to ensure warranties and security through a tailor made insurance product from a very reputable insurance company. But things were not over, and then we faced a huge population who had never heard about renting their own cars. Having always a “we all win” claim in our minds helped us so much to fit the concept into the media, who has turned into our best speaker. After two years of hard work and still acting solo we could say 30% of the Spanish population have heard about renting their cars to their neighbors, even those who tried the service get enthused and become our brand ambassadors.

Emily Rose Newton's curator insight, August 21, 2014 2:37 AM

3.

This interactive website provides a fun, different approach to CI by exploring the evolution of social collaboration. For those who can not stand to read long walls of text (such as the previous source) this website goes through the vast changes of CI, particular emphasis on the swiftness of developments since the introduction of the Internet. For assessment 3, this is a wonderful source in keeping things simple, entertaining and educational all at once. Furthermore, it does not try to push an agenda, rather explain the facts as they are.

Collaboration, Not Competition: A Winning Small Business Strategy - Fox Business | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Small business owners can sometimes feel like it's a dog-eat-dog world out there. If you fall behind, even for a moment, a more tech-savvy business with greater resources could swoop in and take your customers. But competition among businesses doesn't always have to mean war. Instead of viewing other companies only as competitors, entrepreneur Jay Bernstein thinks business owners should look at them as potential collaborators.

Open Innovation or Co-creation and Coexistence of Business Models | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Collaborate is not a simple consequence of a statement. It takes courage! To collaborate requires a different attitude that is, go beyond case studies or exchanges of good practices. Business facing the demands of a constant torrent of change, cannot be satisfied in transferring a solution from one company to another, or adapting existing models. To collaborate inside the increasing complexity that companies are facing is a destination that people who embrace inter-disciplinarity and who are not afraid to be wrong, wish (that exemplify the startups).
