Gary Hamel  has some thoughts about how Gen F ( Facebook Generation) will shape the workplace. No change that – ARE shaping the workplace. It’s just that some companies are a little slow on understanding what is needed to attract the new generation. Portfolio workers pretty much understand this already. Take a look at the WSJ for more detail. Hat tip to John Caswell.

  1. All ideas compete on an equal footing.
  2. Contribution counts for more than credentials.
  3. Hierarchies are natural, not prescribed.
  4. Leaders serve rather than preside.
  5. Tasks are chosen, not assigned.
  6. Groups are self-defining and -organizing.
  7. Resources get attracted, not allocated.
  8. Power comes from sharing information, not hoarding it.
  9. Opinions compound and decisions are peer-reviewed.
  10. Users can veto most policy decisions.
  11. Intrinsic rewards matter most.
  12. Hackers are heroes.
