Becoming a values-driven company requires commitment. It may even come at a short term cost. Before saying you will, ask yourself questions like:
Are you willing to hire/fire people based on whether they fit your core values? Fire, even if an employee adds a lot of value in the short-term?

#CultureHacking   #OverTheFence

Just had a great call with +Karen Schmidt from Berlin, thanks to fairy-connector +Belina Raffy

So work is going collaborative and interdisciplinary. Karen uses a lovely metaphor to get people to consider other ways of seeing, in the context of projects. You might call it "Neighbors & Fences".

"Peeking over a fence" means opening yourself up to a person's viewpoint when it differs from yours. You can do that as a first step. Then you could get closer to the fence, say hi across the fence, and maybe even chat across the fence! And then you might get bold and jump over the fence.

"Over the fence" happens to be the name of Karen's company -  http://overthefence.com.de/. They create technologies for better projects, the first of which is the Project Canvas, a visual tool which can be used to compare how different stakeholders see and understand a joint project. It can serve to let people "get on the same page" much earlier in the lifecycle of the project.

Karen has been growing a group of people who use the Project Canvas. I'm going to start playing with it and report back...

We're happy to see that working more hours doesn't correlate to increased productivity. Making sure employees work appropriate hours will lead to a happier and healthier employee and business!

I often struggle to find content on #FutureWork (or, whatever you call it). Does anyone have any decent links to blogs, feeds, twitter accounts etc that you follow that provides regular content?

I spend time trawling Psychology sites, or HR sites (sometimes that's hard work!), but am never truly satisfied. I find it hard to believe that the future of work is such a small community on the web, it's more likely that I just cannot find it!

Either that, or we are at the tipping point and it's our job to push it over!

A Peek Inside Alibaba's Corporate Culture

Insights: "Alibaba team has snowballed from the original 18 founding members to a giant of 24,000, some of the cultural elements from its earlier start-up days have been carefully retained.
...

First and foremost among those is transparency.
...

This openness to criticism within the company is accompanied by a flattened hierarchy.
...

A third characteristic of the corporate culture is a sense of family unity."
