The Economics of Mass Collaboration
Businessweek publishes a series of articles by Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams on using the power of collaboration to reboot business and the world. The Harvard Business Review also has a podcast, featuring Don Tapscott on the same subject.
The articles in Businessweek are seven edited excerpts from their new book: “Macrowikinomics: Rebooting Business and the World”:
- No. 1: Rebooting the World
- No. 2: Opening Up the Financial Services Industry
- No. 3: A Decentralized, Mass Collaboration Model for Cars
- No. 4: How About an Open Energy Grid?
- No. 5: The Case for Collaborative Health Care
- No. 6: The Music Industry’s Deaf Ear to Digital
- No. 7: The Rise of The Citizen Regulator
In the Harvard Business Review’s podcast Don Tapscott declares that:
The Internet dramatically drops collaboration and transaction costs thus enabling corporations to orchestrate capabilities more efficiently. Collaborative innovation can yield dramatic results in meaningful new product designs, service delivery models, and customer satisfaction; potentially yielding an endless supply of “good ideas”.
