Guidelines for Posting

This is not a “business as usual” business community, so please read these guidelines before you post here.

The Focus
The focus of this community is “business as a force for good in the world.” This community does not cover generic business topics like management, leadership, marketing and so on. There are other communities on Google+ for that, and if you post it here, it will be taken down - usually without explanation. The topic categories on the left side of the community page list the topics we cover here. We will soon post a more detailed description for each category.

The Goals
This community is to help members learn about “Good Business” topics and connect with others who share this interest. Learning and connecting are the goals.

No Spam
If you post blatant spam in the community, you will be banned and reported to Google. Boom.

Link Dumping & Promotion
Link dumping is posting a link without contributing additional thoughts. If you link dump, your post will be removed without explanation. This community is not just a place to market/promote your work. Constantly posting your content and nothing else is generally frowned on. If you want to talk about your work here, please do so in a way that adds real value to the community we are trying to build here.

This community has a group of “Contributors” - people with a demonstrated, an ongoing, commitment to sharing high-quality, relevant content. Contributors have more license to share their own content and other material. We will soon have a post introducing our Contributors and their primary areas of topical focus. Here are the guidelines for being a good Contributor:

We have a great group of moderators in this community. Please help them out as much as you can, and remember: they’re not paid to do this work - so treat them nicely. :) Here's a bit more about them:

Changes in manufacturing to offer greater personalization to consumers could also lead to reduced consumption - and that could be very good for the planet. 
This piece starts with an overview of "Industry 4.0" and his people will be at the center of it. Then, it goes in an important different direction, looking at how the personalization of production will change production processes in a way that dramatically reduces waste and the problems of over-consumption.

Finnish retail #cooperatives
#OatsAndChocolates Thank you Alepa Kauppakassi (grocery delivery service)! Some of the products we ordered yesterday had their packaging slightly damaged - with contents intact. Nevertheless today they brought another package of every item free - plus three extra packages of Fazer chocolates (not shown in the picture). We had ordered four and only one package was superficially damaged. They still brought four new. That's one kilo extra.

Alepa is part of the S Group, so as members we get 5% bonus back of everything we buy there. On top of that we get 5-20% annual interest for our membership deposits. All our family members have joined 14 different retail cooperatives that are all members of the S Group. In total that is €4200 euros in deposits that generate about €500 profit annually, basically risk free. In other words, they pay us high interest so that we can get at least 5% discount of everything we buy. Their pricing is competitive even without the discounts, and of course they have also other offers, discounts at many restaurants, cruises, hotels, etc.

The S Bank accounts and credit card are also free - without any service fees direct or indirect - and they actually pay you 0.5% back of everything you buy in their stores (on top of that 5%). It's not some obscure loyalty point system. They pay it all in cash. You can even invest it automatically to any of the S mutual funds that have zero transaction fees, so you can invest any amount, large or small, or withdraw it at any time at no cost.

You get all your receipts directly to your smartphone if you like, so you can get rid of paper receipts completely. Even the guarantee receipts are separated automatically and kept electronically for future reference.

Leaders of the S Group are democratically elected.

It's often cited that money is the source of all evil. Well, it's actually a bit deeper than that.

It's competition itself that is rooted deeply in the origins of life. That is the true origin of all lies, bias and partisanship. Even primitive life forms try to fool their predators and competitors. Even insects and microbes fight at the scale that is possible for their form.

On the other hand, origin of all good is in communication and cooperation - between individuals of the same species and also between species. Even higher good, looking after whole ecosystems, becomes possible for higher developed understanding.

This is why what we perceive as evil or selfish stupidity and shortsightedness is so difficult to root out. It's grown deep in the primitive instincts of animals and all life, even plants. One doesn't need a brain to be shortsighted or to lack vision. The evil comes from a time when there literally was no understanding and each organism acted strictly in its own immediate environment trying desperately to compete for scarce resources.

However, the deepest form of cooperation is even deeper than the competition. The initial form of communication was the exchange of genetic code that is nowadays otherwise known as sex. With more complex animals the instincts and emotions of love developed around it.

Looking back at money from this perspective, it encompasses both the elements of competition and elements of communication and cooperation. It's a medium of exchange, but what makes it fundamentally different from DNA - the natural medium of exchange - is that money per se does not encode information of what works in cooperation or competition. It's just a scalar whose value is determined by human arbitration. Whether money, works as a means of evil or good, depends on whether we use it for ruthless competition or balanced cooperation.

The source of all evil is ruthless competition: Focus on maximising growth via profit. Think in terms of risk and profit. Be bold, proud, ruthless, aggressive, passionate and do not hesitate. Disclose information on need to know basis. Do not disclose strategic information. Use misinformation to confuse your competitors and your prey. Never trust. Be evil.

The source of all good is mutually beneficial cooperation: Focus on security via balanced diversity. Think in terms of caution and continuity. Be wise, humble, compassionate, patient and understanding. Think and discuss. Openly share the truth in public. Never lie. Trust. Be good.

It takes higher intelligence to even begin to understand why the good will prevail over the evil. Especially note that good does not win, because it does not compete. It just prevails.

Paradoxically both the good and the evil see each other as stupid. The difference is that good people admit they are quite limited, and in that way stupid, whereas the evil see themselves as smart. So both are right about the other, but the evil are mistaken about themselves. That is narcissism.

Many people simply do not believe in the good, because they lack the required level of understanding. This type despises the altruist, their caricature for good that they perceive as childlike. This is how you can detect the evil mindset, either in others, or in yourself. However, you can only change it in yourself.

You have the good in you, so you will respond to evil with good. Just be cautious with the evil. It's primitive and doesn't understand itself, similar to a wild beast. The evil is predictable. You know it's going to try to lie to you. You can trust it will try to compete you. The trick is to make it believe you are a friend, and then be a friend, without turning evil yourself in the process. Finally, always maintain caution when being friends with the evil, because they are predictable to test your patience from time to time.

These are not supernatural forces. The good and evil are simply attitudes, instincts, emotions, behaviors etc. found in our minds, evolved as a part of life. They are real activity of our central nervous system.

My new article "Reputational impact of operational and compliance risks". The business reputation is the final consequence of how the ethical values permeated the corporate culture to be visible to stakeholders. Corporate values need more than be self-proclaimed to improve the image perceived by stakeholders.

Most of us alive today grew up believing in a certain inevitability when it comes to technology. We sense — incorrectly— that the way we relate to technology today is the way we will relate to it in decades to come. We believe — mistakenly — that what is cold and alien today will only be more so tomorrow. We buy into the idea — though that is all it is — that the primary purpose of technology is to make money for its owners.

Companies control the code behind the code of today's technology. What would it take to build tools with deeper purpose?
If we want technology that embraces our humanity, we need to start asking for it.
