Essence is an attempt to offer such advice and complement the contributions of other writers such as my good colleague, Jeremy Rose (Rose, J. (2010). Software Innovation: eight work-style heuristics for creative software developers. Aalborg, Software Innovation, Aalborg University).

The Content Economy by Oscar Berg: There's no shortcut to the fu inShare0 On several occasions, on this blog and elsewhere, I've discussed why and how culture matters for Enterprise 2.0 to happen. In my most recent posts, I've specifically discussed how certain values and cultural characteristics are pre-requisites for Enterprise 2.0 to happen: My main point is that there is no chicken or the egg situation: Sure, a culture change can be supported and accelerated by technology, but there must always be a spark somewhere - a culture or subculture (a social group that shares certain values and behaviors) - that initiates this change.
