Open Collaboration - The Next Economic Paradigm

Open Collaboration - The Next Economic Paradigm
I’ve dedicated a lot of research over the last few years to understanding the deep trends that will define the next economy. As I’ve written elsewhere, the global economy goes through a creative-destructive cycle every 50 years. And now we’re in the midst of a collapsing paradigm that is soon to be replaced by something new. In this article, I will explain what the new paradigm is and how it will impact every sector of society — including business, government, education, and basic research. The old economic paradigm was a service economy built on the digital communications revolution that began in the early 1970′s. It is winding down now as financial capital has decoupled from productive capital and the global speculative bubble has burst. This systemic shutdown requires a new paradigm for economic production, one that has been incubating in the minds of lead innovators for several years now and is just beginning to get recognized as the next model for the burgeoning new economy.

World debt comparison: The global debt clock Microfinance and Microcredit Investment | Dispatches from the front lines of management innovation - McKinsey Quarterly - Strategy - Innovation The Management Innovation eXchange (MIX) is a Web-based open-innovation project dedicated to catalyzing the creativity of thinkers and practitioners interested in reinventing management. That’s not an undertaking for any one individual or organization—it’s everybody’s problem, which is why the MIX is designed as a collaborative platform both to surface bold ideas and make progress on a set of make-or-break challenges. Earlier this year, the MIX introduced the first-ever management-innovation contest, the M-Prize, around three such challenges: redefining the work of leadership, increasing trust, and taking the work out of work. MIXers from all over the world contributed hundreds of entries. Few of the submissions are world changing, some are half baked, and a couple are truly off the wall. But so many of them are bold and original, sometimes even audaciously imaginative, that they confirm our deeply held belief that everyone wins when everyone shares. Increasing trust at Microsoft

5 hacks para aprender um novo idioma melhor e mais rápido - Galileu | Life Hacks Você certamente já ouviu que aprender um novo idioma, principalmente depois de adulto, é mais difícil. Isso porque a plasticidade do nosso cérebro já não é mais a mesma. De acordo comRobert Bley-Vroman, em seu livro Linguistic Perspectives on Second Language Acquisition, encaramos o aprendizado como uma forma de resolver problemas, diferentemente de crianças quando aprendem a se comunicar. Mas isso não significa que tudo está perdido. E, falando em motivação, separamos hacks que podem potencializar seu aprendizado. 1. A ideia é revisar as coisas que você aprendeu em intervalos determinados. O diagrama abaixo mostra como a repetição pode ajudar a reverter a curva de esquecimento natural: Um app que te ajuda na questão da repetição espaçada é o Duolingo. 2.
