Networks of innovation and architectures of participation

Thanks to Cory Sorice for pointing me to an article, Heres an idea: Let everyone have ideas, in the New York Times, March 26 which reports on Rite-Solutions a technology company who have created a vigorous marketplace for ideas inside their company in what Tim O’Reilly calls an “architecture of participation”.

It is also very refreshing to hear executives say, and clearly mean, “we’re the founders, but we’re far from the brightest people here”

Cory goes on to observe:

From my experience, organizations, even innovative ones, have long worked using hierarchy as well as strategic and financial requirements for go/no go decisions for new concepts.

One of the greatest challenges for the corporate enterprise is finding ways to allow the most innovative employees to prove their forward thinking to senior management.

As we enter a much more open environment for collaboration and innovation, senior managers will have more tools on how to leverage their brightest minds, whether the ideas fit their strategy or not.

Rite-Solutions has tapped what is we see as the beginning of an exciting trend of allowing the most inventive people new ways to express themselves.
