  5. 6. Co-creation
  6. 7. “ The people who say ‘ I can’t come because I’m at work’ are missing the point. This is work!&quot; Lloyd Davis, Tuttle Club
  7. 8. Passion
  8. 9. ” People are treated as people again. When they come to work, their colleagues are no longer talking to a person who’s doing a job. They are talking to a person who’s got emotions, a private life, a husband, kids, whatever. Social software provides a much more accurate persona.&quot; Luis Suarez, IBM
  9. 10. Learning
  10. 11. “ These days, your partners are also your customers, are also your competitors - all at the same time. It’s a much more dynamic environment.” Matt Glotzbach, Google
  11. 12. Openness
  12. 13. “ We’re a news organisation, essentially.&quot; Scott Monty, Ford
  13. 14. Listening
  14. 15. “ Consumers and line workers are the people who know how the business should run. In hierarchies you have a lot of problems. The people who are good at climbing up the career ladder, they’re good at climbing up the ladder and not much else. That’s why hierarchies are dysfunctional. Try and stay flat!” Craig Newmark, craigslist
  15. 16. Generosity
  16. 17. “ There’s a growing realisation that, in lots of cases, having less control and giving a wider access to what you’re working on, there’s a benefit: you learn from the mistakes of others just as they learn from your mistakes.&quot; James Boyle, Creative Commons
