A consommer sans modération :) Best crowd funding sites First, Let's Fire All the Managers Management is the least efficient activity in your organization. Think of the countless hours that team leaders, department heads, and vice presidents devote to supervising the work of others. Most managers are hardworking; the problem doesn’t lie with them. The inefficiency stems from a top-heavy management model that is both cumbersome and costly. A hierarchy of managers exacts a hefty tax on any organization.

Stop Competing to Be the Best - Joan Magretta by Joan Magretta | 12:09 PM November 30, 2011 With Cyber Monday, the tablet wars kicked into full swing. Which one is the best? Is it the iPad? Lemnarama Lemnarama, s'entraider sur facebook devient simple et amusant 3 à 15 fois par semaine, nous nous posons des questions pour lesquelles des recherches sur Google sont moins pertinentes que les conseils d’amis qui nous connaissent. Les réseaux sociaux pourraient devenir alors des outils très puissants s’ils n’étaient pas si bruyants. Les 500 millions d’utilisateurs de Facebook publient en effet plus de 70 millions de statuts chaque jours et il en va de même sur Twitter : la tendance s’accélère avec le développement de l’internet mobile. A l’état brut, il devient alors impossible de suivre toutes ces conversations dans leur intégralité : comment alors faciliter l’entraide entre personnes qui se connaissent et sont à même de s’apporter quelques coups de pouce…ces petits gestes «gratuits» qui changent la vie ? Derrière ces pratiques de social gaming, nous souhaitons installer une monnaie complémentaire virtuelle, dédiée à l’échange amical.

La démocratie par tirage au sort Campagne présidentielle ou non, le couple démocratie-élections s'impose aujourd'hui comme une évidence. D'autres systèmes de sélection sont pourtant possibles, notamment le tirage au sort, comme le rappelle Jean-Paul Jouary, chroniqueur iconoclaste. Le suffrage par le sort est de la nature de la démocratie ; le suffrage par choix est de celle de l’aristocratie. – Montesquieu. Il peut paraître choquant aujourd’hui de se demander si suffrage universel et la démocratie sont identiques, tant le droit de vote a été difficile à acquérir, et tant il est évident que les peuples qui en sont privés sont pour cela même privés de démocratie.

danone.communities Maker's Schedule, Manager's Schedule July 2009 One reason programmers dislike meetings so much is that they're on a different type of schedule from other people.

Cradle-to-cradle design Cradle to Cradle design (also referred to as Cradle to Cradle, C2C, cradle 2 cradle, or regenerative design) is a biomimetic approach to the design of products and systems. It models human industry on nature's processes viewing materials as nutrients circulating in healthy, safe metabolisms. It suggests that industry must protect and enrich ecosystems and nature's biological metabolism while also maintaining a safe, productive technical metabolism for the high-quality use and circulation of organic and technical nutrients.[1] Put simply, it is a holistic economic, industrial and social framework that seeks to create systems that are not only efficient but also essentially waste free.[2] The model in its broadest sense is not limited to industrial design and manufacturing; it can be applied to many aspects of human civilization such as urban environments, buildings, economics and social systems.
