To support as many corporations as possible in the transformation process from PUSH PROGRAMS to PULL PLATFORMS “ Pull platforms harness their participants passion, commitment, desire to learn, thereby creating communities that can improvise and innovate rapidly.”
Push and Pull Push Programs Pull Platforms Demand can be anticipated Demand is highly uncertain Top down design Emergent design Centralized control Decentralized initiative Procedural Modular Tightly coupled Loosely coupled Resource centric People centric Participation restricted Participation open Few participants Many diverse participants Efficiency focus Innovation focus Limited number of major Rapid incremental innovation re-engineering efforts Zero sum rewards Positive sum rewards Extrinsic rewards dominate Intrinsic rewards dominate *John Hagel and John Seely Brown - 2005

“ Far more powerful and enduring is to align people with a purpose beyond profit. A hope that their endeavours at work are meaningful in the big scheme of things. It's not as if we are short of opportunities to make positive changes to our world, is it!” Tom Peters
Three tools to change Purpose Driven Innovation Contribution Marketing Holism
1. Purpose Driven Innovation Production is oriented on input/output. It basically answers the “what” question. In the current meaning seeking market as a corporation you first need to answer the “Why?” question. The why gives purpose . Be honest. What would your customer think of your answer? The formulation of the “why” answer should take into account all stakeholders. It requires that the creators look beyond the traditional profit or growth motivation.
Corporation Consumer Answer the “why” question! Products do you want? Trends do you follow? Channels do you shop? Category do you fit? Are you here? Do want my time? Do want my money? The analysis of data will not by itself produce new ideas – Edward de Bono
“ We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit “Aristotle
2. Contribution marketing Wish Choose your “object” of excellence Create a Purpose Statement Believe your Purpose Statement Facilitate on open platform(s) Co - create
Choose your “object” of excellence
Create a Purpose Statement
Believe your Purpose Statement
Facilitate on open platform(s)
Co - create
Marketing as a Service “ We need to use marketing as a chance to do something for people, not an excuse to say things to them” - Zeus Jones

3. Holism " We came all this way to explore the moon, and the most important thing is that we discovered is the Earth. “ Bill Anders (Apollo 8)
