Gen Y and the workplace • All ideas compete on an equal footing • Contribution counts for more than credentials • Hierarchies are natural, not prescribed • Leaders serve rather than preside • Tasks are chosen, not assigned • Groups are self-deﬁning and - organizing • Ressources get attracted, not allocated • Power comes from sharing information, not hording it • Opinions compound and decisions are peer-reviewed • Users can veto most policy decisions • Intrinsic rewards matter most • Hackers are heroes

Kill Email It‘s killing your productivity.
Email is 40+ years old now
„Trapped“ in Emails are • Knowledge • Tasks • Files" • Hierarchies, Secrets, Power etc.
Email is THE„killer“-app • Email is always intrusive, always „Push“ instead of „Pull“ • Email is used very wrong VERY often (Chat, cc: deleted etc.) • Email is killing time • Email is killing productivity • Email is very often the wrong solution for the job to be done • Email is generating silos of knowledge • Email can easily lead to misunderstandings regarding tone • Email is the opposite of transparency • Email has no built-in fun feature (no gamiﬁcation included)
Killerfeature: No mailclient ;)
Email is NOT the only choice
