Radical openness – Innovative or destructive force?


13 September 2015

All over the world, the way people connect and collaborate is undergoing an astonishing transformation. Smart organizations are shunning their old, secretive practices and embracing transparency. Companies are widely sharing intellectual property and releasing patents. And movements for freedom and justice are exploding everywhere as organizations like Wikileaks spread information faster than ever before. Though these movements may differ, they all share one idea: radical openness. 'Radical Openness', Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams' (2013) book, forecasts a game-changing view of the world. This session invites participants to share their understanding of radical disruption within real estate, for themselves, their employees and customers. How is radical openness already changing the workplace? How might it change the future workplace and city? In what ways does this impact the future strategy of corporate real estate? Emergent ideas featured in the UK project 'Art + Science of Workplace' co-funded by Cushman & Wakefield, RBS, and CoreNet Global UK Chapter will be shared during this thought-provoking session.
