La démocratie dans l'entreprise

Peut-on instituer une véritable démocratie dans l'entreprise ? Y a-t-il des similarités avec la démocratie politique qui nous est familière ? Quelles sont les solutions proposées par les coopératives et les mutuelles implantées depuis longtemps en France ? Quelles sont les limites de ces modèles ?
La MAIF, le Crédit Coopératif et le Groupe Up (anciennement Groupe Chèque Déjeuner), en tant que mutuelle et coopératives, sont engagées depuis longtemps dans le maintien d'une gouvernance partagée.
Les Présidents de ces trois organisations partageront leurs expériences au cours de ce panel.

Connecting Diversities: Migrants, Social Innovation and Collaborative Inclusion

We must change the way we think about migrants. With their diversity and mobility they can help us to make a much-needed cultural shift: to move from the traditional idea of living in solid and homogenous societies, toward the recognition that we already are experiencing open and dynamic — and therefore fluid and changeable — social forms and structures. A condition in which, in many ways, we are all mutually strangers.

The question then becomes: how can people who consider each other strangers live well together? How do we achieve connection within diversity? The answer is collaboration: the exchange of time, experiences, and expertise in order to achieve a mutually recognized result.

Even in contemporary society, with all its contradictions and complexity, collaboration is possible. Already we see collaborative social innovation in action between migrants and citizens — whether it’s organizing soccer games, playing music together, or starting up enterprises. Diverse people are able to meet and collaborate. And, doing so, to produce values for themselves and for the whole community. The task of design must be to create ecosystems where these forms of collaboration can grow and thrive, generating models that go well beyond the issue of migrants to improve social cohesion as a whole.

Blockchains: The End of the Corporation or its Reinvention?
The Internet has enabled decentralized exchange of information, but until know, any exchange of value had to rely on a trusted third party, even in the digital economy. With Blockchain Tech, even transactions can be managed in a completely distributed fashion, removing the need for any intermediary at all: it is "the Ultimate Uberization". Does this mean corporations will eventually disappear, or morph into blockchain-based DAOs - "Decentralized Autonomous Organizations" ? Or in the contrary, will the transparency and efficiency of blockchain technology open a whole range of possibilities for businesses to reinvent their industry, hopefully for the better?

New Kids on the Blockchain
The Ups and Downfalls of the Internet and what the Blockchain can change

The internet and world wide web started as decentralized technologies. Nevertheless very quickly the centralized models and structures from the industrial age hijacked this originally democratic vision of decentralization. In fact we saw a catalyst effect injecting steroids into multi national organizations and turning them into global mega platforms. With the advent of the blockchain it seems we get another chance to restructure our economical and societal models. Questions that arise are: Who will be affected by the Blockchain the most? Looking at startups, organizations and governments: What opportunities will be created or closed off? And how can we as individuals become more empowered? How can wealth be more distributed? What question comes to your mind... ?

From Seed to Mouth: how open source and decentralization can transform our food system

Our food system today is controlled by a handful of companies, that influence a lot regulations through lobbying in order to protect their financial interests. The power has shifted over the past decades from the producers to the food corporations, who control the whole food chain, from seeds to retail, leaving the farmers under pressure, and resulting in countless negative externalities: greenhouse gases, nutrients decrease, soil and water pollution, health consequences, dead marine zones, antibiotics resistance, farmers suicides. Patents on life filed by those corporations are not only a threat for global food sovereignty, but also, an important cause of destruction of the biodiversity of our planet. How can decentralized, open source and collaborative initiatives in farming practices, equipments and distribution transform our food system for the better? That's the question we are going to debate in this session.

Networked Models for 21st-Century Organizations

How can we structure an organization so that it keeps up with the complexity of its environment? Many of tomorrow's organizations (or is it today's?) will have decentralized activities, based on many different contributors in and out the organization itself. Products and services will need to be continuously adapted, giving organizations a strong entrepreneurial feel. Workers will seek short or long-time project engagements while keeping a strong affiliation to one or more communities. Can we still talk about organizations or should we talk about networks or communities? What changes does that entail? How can traditional organizations be inspired?
Some organizations are already ahead of times and experimenting with the most innovative forms of operating. Come meet them! Lab.coop from Hungary, Faircoop from Spain, and Esnpiral from New Zealand (and beyond) will introduce their model before discussing them.

Bossless Organizations in Practice
Last year at OuiShare Fest 15, we explored the lessons learned from "building self-managed organizations". This year we move the discussion forward by asking startups and traditional companies how they have deployed a range of practices for autonomy in their own context. Some have been experimenting with a range of practices while others have been going through widespread organizational transformation.
Does a "bossless" organization mean the end or a transformation of hierarchies? What opportunities has it created for the people involved? What practices should be recommended? What should be avoided?
Participants from 3 companies will share their experiments: 
  • Poult is a French industrial biscuit company which is famous for being one of the pioneers, decades ago, in experimenting with autonomous management. 
  • Buffer, an app that helps you manage your social media visibility, has tried out self-management before backing out and coming back to more conventional hierarchies. 
  • A Little Market is a marketplace for crafted products which recently set up rotating leadership among its teams. 
  • Cocoon Projects is a distributed collective experimenting with agility processes. 
As autonomous management is picking up, it's time to learn from experience!

From Making to Manufacturing: the future of production?

Manufactured products form the foundation of most economic systems. Government, industry and individuals develop and produce products in the form of goods and services to meet the needs of those in society. The desire for low cost goods has been met through economies of scale and mass production. This forced consumer to compromise their wants or needs with what is available.

In the meantime, the needs of consumers have evolved with the development of technologies that have driven consumers to higher levels of expectation. Also more attention is being put on sustainability issues. These factors are changing the way products are conceived and brought to market, from idea to delivery and subsequently to post consumption. The recent digital transformation and the new means of production is leading to transformation of our industries. It’s called rapid response advanced manufacturing.

At the same time digital fabrication tools became easily accessible. New types of consumer designed products with powerful user communities enter the market.  The underground hacker community forked in to Fablabs and makerspaces to form the maker movement. Open source, collaborative/web-based engineering developed in to a grass root proof of concept of fully personalized user centered, local manufacturing. Slowly building an infrastructure for agile, on demand decentralized production capable to 3d print their own homes. 

During this session we will try to answer the question of how to move from making and rapid prototyping to citizen production. Should we bring manufacturing back to the cities? Do we need to develop new supply chains? What industry can learn from today’s makers and what is the missing link? What wil be the role of makerspaces in distributed manufacturing? Should makers scale up and professionalize or the industry scale across?

Startups et grands groupes : quelle stratégie de partenariat pour quels objectifs ?
Depuis 5 ans les partenariats se sont multipliés entre grands groupes et startups de l'économie collaborative. Si les promesses de ses rapprochements sont nombreuses, la réalité a montré que leur réalisation n'allait pas de soi : différences culturelles, horizons temporels en décalage, gouvernance spécifique. 
La capacité à s'engager dans des partenariats est déterminante tant pour les startups que les groupes : les groupes bénéficient de l’agilité des startups pour trouver des relais de croissance et accélérer leur transformation numérique tandis que les startups bénéficient d'un terrain d'expérimentation, de financement et d'accélération.
Comment construire et réaliser une stratégie de partenariat efficace?

New ways of measuring and distributing value: experiments and stories

We can observe today an increasing number of initiatives experimenting with alternative ways of measuring and sharing value in companies, communities and networks.

Why should we explore alternatives? Which alternative models already exist? Are monetary rewards necessary? How could we create a new model that better serves a creativity and knowledge economy?

This session brings together representatives from 4 different organizations that are asking themselves these questions and trying to find answers by building various new models for measuring contributions and distributing value.

The following organizations will share stories and concrete examples of successes and failures in pursuing this:

  • Cobudget, a collaborative funding and participatory budgeting tool, being used by the Enspiral network and other organizations.

  • Gratipay, a platform that provides payments and payroll for open work. They have launched pilot projects where employees set their own salaries.

  • Thanks & Share: a human learning & natural intelligence network that enables founders and contributors to share the company’s equity with a model they have developed.  

  • Cocoon Projects: an open enterprise that starts, supports and accelerates value driven, innovative projects. They’ve developed the Liquido framework for open companies.

Future of mobility ecosystems
Last few years have seen a burgeoning of strategic shifts from a wide range of companies that were leaders in their ecosystem: automotive, public transport or automotive repair & maintenance services. They all now profess their love for the mobility ecosystem and ambition to be among those who matter.
What kind of transformation should these companies undergo? How could platform and collaborative business models impact their current activities? How do they build a new ecosystem and a new culture?

Platforms for mobility: overcoming growing-pains
Last few years have seen the emergence of disruptive business models and services in the realm of mobility. Some of them have attracted a growing public and media attention. They sometimes spurred concern among regulators, legacy stakeholders and even consumers.
How do these platforms handle their exponential growth. How high is the sky they consider their only limit to growth? How much impact should we expect from such business models? What are the conditions to a balanced sharing of benefits between consumers, platforms, service providers and society?

Learn from "Tech for Good" global programmes
Have you considered the impact of violence against women on business? Safety and wellbeing of women and girls is a key to peace-building efforts everywhere in the world. When violence against women stops, women can prosper and societies can flourish. In the UK alone it is estimated that the economy loses £15 billion annually due to gender-based violence, from start-ups to established corporations. This is why the Womanity Foundation is supporting collaborations that tackle the causes and effects of gender-based violence around the world. In 2016 its Womanity Award will invest in successful approaches that harness ICT and new media to prevent violence against women. This session will showcase 4 successful interventions that are being replicated and scaled up in different parts of the world, to positively influence and change attitudes and behaviours, and therefore catalyze social and economic progress. The audience will also be invited to learn from and contribute to the topic. Eventually, Yann Borgstedt, founder and president of the Womanity Foundation will announce the 2016 Womanity Award Winners, among the 4 teams on the panel.

Building Individual Capabilities for the Networked Era
We live in a time where nearly everybody has access to nearly all the information and traditional academies seem not being able to cope with complex environments we live: traditional curricula have lost most of their meaning.
New, experimental forms of educations are emerging giving new opportunities to the younger and also to those that are able to re-think themselves. What capabilities should be educated for now? How can we build our life long skills? What traits should companies look for in young leaders? Do these leaders still find interest in working in complex organizations?

The Power of Making

What is the power of thinking by making?

Making is the act resulting in something coming to be. The arts and crafts movement preceded today’s ‘maker’ culture.  ‘Traditional’ forms of making were passed down from master to apprentice, through years of repetition. Today we are witnessing a growing popularity of more experimental and innovative making: less rehearsed but also less reliable(?).

In reaction to globalized mass production, throw-away cultures, consumerism and the omnipresence of chain stores, new types of community spaces like fablabs, makerspace or hackerspaces pop up in our neighborhoods.  

Here we find community interaction and knowledge sharing on both local and global level, with the help of networked technologies. These social environments promote informal, peer-led shared learning often motivated by fun and self-fulfillment. People come to gain practical skills, learn how to repair, reuse, improve and tweaking designs.

The potential to enable more participatory approaches and create new pathways into important topics is clear, but this path is not for all of us.

Should we all make the shift and become makers?  It may be frustrating to master a new skill in this busy world. Should we take the time to move from frustration to pleasure and start to think through materials and skills?
