The Innov-A-team

The Innov-A-team

Use this:

In 1972 a team of open workers was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. This team promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the global underground. Today, still wanted by the bad guys, they survive as members of a worker’s co-operative. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the Innov-A-Team…

(If that all made no sense, then I’m guessing you either weren’t around in the eighties, or had better things to do with your time…)

Happily created for this WeAreOpen blog post.

The Seven Co-operative Principles

You may not know that there are Seven Co-operative Principles. Yesterday, I was at Mozfest, hosted by Ravensbourne College in Greenwich, facilitating a visual conversation all about co-operatives. In fact, Mozfest is so chock-full of conversations, you can easily spend an hour getting to the right floor, bumping into interesting people you half-know. And that’s not because the lift/elevators are confusing. Which they are, but anyways…

I’m a founding member of WeAreOpen, a worker co-operative set up to help a few of us combine our skills, networks and voices.

A co-operative state of mind

When a friend of mine asked if I’d be interested in forming a Co-op, I had to admit, I’d never considered it as a viable vehicle for business. Having come to the conclusion that there was no reason not to be a part of the adventure, I jumped in. I’d come across co-ops briefly having come from a farming background, but even in digital consultancy sphere it now makes total sense to me. This thinkery is my attempt at illustrating why…

This doodle was drawn without looking up the interwebs following a comment at the recent get together of WeAreOpen members. I’m pretty sure I must have drawn it as a kid. I remember noticing that this type of van with its fat wheels and wide wheelbase wasn’t seen on the roads of Northern Ireland. Which makes me think – the B team must drive a white Ford Transit…
