Wikinomics in Berlin

After attending Don Tapscott's great presentation in Brussels on Tuesday November 6th 2007, organized by The Lisbon Council, I was very happy to find this video of the writer of Wikinomics on the web.

Since a project manager is used to working without formal authority and in a flexible team, I am convinced Don's approach of massive collaboration he talks about in his book is a very powerful way of realizing more successful projects. Think about it, you would have to create such and enticing vision that people actually join your project out of their free will (this is what is happening at Boeing in their R&D department for new ides by the way). This also means a Wiki is a very powerful tool for co-creating your project, so please consider setting one up for your next project.

It is referenced by his own website, so you can hardly call it a bootleg! Sit back and relax, this is easily one of the best speakers I have seen in the circuit over the last months.

  1. Perhaps this podcast from Harvard Business Online with Don Tapscott is also of interest for you:

    Much shorter, simply explaining the basics of wikinomics.
