  13. 13. DifferenFated  Knowledge   Wealth   As  informaFon  is  shared  globally  and  insight  is   commodiFzed,  the  best  returns  go  to  those  who  can     produce  non-­‐standard,  differenFated  knowledge  
  14. 14. Corporate  LEGO   Security   With  more  free  agents  and  outsourcing,  non-­‐core     funcFons  within  organisaFons  are  interchangeable     and  easily  rebuilt  around  value-­‐creaFng  units
