Going Beyond Openness: transforming Supply, Profit and Value Chains

The promise of open source will not work in the economy of tangible products, organizations and processes if we don’t activate in first person in the creation of something radically new. If we do not experiment beyond licenses, beyond openness.

The revolution of distributed, sustainable and abundant production requires more inventive in social forms, brand management, financial models, involvement of local communities.

Why also non Digital Brands will eventually become Platforms

To which extent, componentization will lead to the transformation of the very same concept of the brand? Transforming into Platforms is the next calling for brands and market co-evolution will define the winners.

Policies for Shared Innovation and Local Development

For some time now I’ve been making assumptions about what policies and changes the public administration should adopt in order to promote local development and long-term innovation. Despite these reflections are inevitably linked to the Italian scene, I think they might be generally helpful. These practices are also already being tested in some contexts (both nationally and internationally wide) with relevant results.

The Dharma, the Interconnected Mind and the Future of the Enterprise

Corporations can no longer hold back. Can not help but speak the same language of the people, get to the same questions and face the same thorny issue: fix the economy through a new relationship with resources and consumption. The price of not doing so? The forced end of the market and human development as we knew it.

Today I am optimistic in thinking that, in the end, our interconnected mind will pull out the problems we have to solve as a society. We may not to lose the Dharma at the end of the day and understand that giving up the change is, quite simply, a non-option.

On the role of Resources in the “Third Industrial Revolution”

Back from Barcelona, from the Panel with Catarina Mota we hosted as Ouishare at the Fablab. Great discussion about materials, supply chain and more in general about why this “Third Industrial Revolution” is about a more conscious and honest use (and relation) with resources
