  1. 1. On a strategic level, we at Mindjumpers use a working process we call Tribesourcing. The next slides will give you an introduction to this process.
  2. 2. Why Tribes?
  3. 3. ”A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader and an idea. For millions of years, humans have joined tribes.” “Now the internet has eliminated the barriers of geography, cost, and time. All those blogs and social networking sites are helping existing tribes get bigger and enabling new tribes to be born-groups of ten or ten million who care about their iPhones, or a political campaign, or a new way to fight global warming.” Seth Godin: ’Tribes’, 2008
  4. 4. Social media is a new powerful tool in building valuable tribes. Definition of social media: Technologies that facilitate online interaction and conversation between people.
