Published on

The author seeks answers to several questions, some of which are:

  7. 7. Main Observations (1/2) 01 Dec 2011 7Copyright © 2011 – Irena Rezec - WOTRA d.o.o. (Ltd.) - SLOVENIA • People are at the centre, no longer companies - people and not companies are connected, which on the one hand poses a real threat to companies, as they might lose their best talent or inside know-how; on the other hand however, these personalized relationships could provide completely new positive perspectives, challenges and opportunities. In all previous partnership models there are problems of involving people at different levels into the partnership process, there might be problems of involving companies - employers of those connected people. Companies will need to pay much more attention to appropriate award systems for the most talented and loyal workers. • Everyone is a source of something to someone. Every mobile user and/or everyone with access to the Internet has access to virtual networks and platforms as many of them are open to everyone. You can sell or share whatever you know or whatever you are able to offer and buy whatever you need. Language is no longer a barrier to collaborating globally.
  8. 8. Main Observations (2/2) 01 Dec 2011 8Copyright © 2011 – Irena Rezec - WOTRA d.o.o. (Ltd.) - SLOVENIA • The purpose of the majority of virtual/on-line platforms is too general (meeting whoever and sharing whatever), however new platforms, which are on the horizon, are much more goal/objective oriented. • Countries with competitive advantage will be those who will be able to quickly adapt their educational, legal, financial and business support systems to new business models that are already present and even more to those which are on the horizon. Many countries are not yet ready for these new, extremely diverse and sometimes very complex global virtual collaboration models which open the door wider to the virtual economy. 0 20 40 60 80 100 purposes types of cooperation recognised legal entity forms standardized financial and accounting systems success
  9. 9. Our main development challenge Today’s trend of a “connected world of everything and everyone from everywhere” will initiate many changes and many challenges. We see our challenge in developing and spreading appropriate types of business, leadership, management, organisational, research and business support models, methods and tools. All these in such a way as to create added value for one or more of our target groups to enable them to survive, win and even enjoy the world complexity, diversity and heterogenity. We can learn enormously from the newly shaped connected world, and we can overcome many of today’s problems by combining purposes and talents with processes and technology. We believe global knowledge sharing and the development of a collaborative culture will bring a better and more balanced world. Our goal is to contribute to this with all our knowledge, experience, intelligence and a positive spirit. 01 Dec 2011 9Copyright © 2011 – Irena Rezec - WOTRA d.o.o.
