Great report, Will, sparking lots of thoughts. One of which is that it is not only a question of nature of the institution itself but the way in which that institution utilises the capabilities of the individuals within it. To paraphrase Amartya Sen, rather than questioning 'what company ought we create' it is to look at 'what companies we can create'. This shift requires a different approach to knowledge and its value within the company. Is it too much to ask us all (companies and individuals) to stop trying to use knowledge as power?

Was always interested to see if anyone took that earlier Demos report on Disorganisation a step further... will read with pleasure.

I'm not sure quite how much it builds on that one, Pat. But there may be connections I haven't spotted. Hope you enjoy it in any case.
