In their 2007 bestseller, Wikinomics, Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams taught the world how mass collaboration was changing the way businesses communicate, compete, and succeed in the new global marketplace. But much has changed in three years, and the principles of wikinomics are now more powerful than ever.

In this new age of networked intelligence, businesses and communities are bypassing crumbling institutions. We are altering the way our financial institutions and governments operate; how we educate our children; and how the health-care, newspaper, and energy industries serve their customers.

In every corner of the globe, businesses, organizations, and individuals alike are using mass collaboration to revolutionize not only the way we work, but how we live, learn, create, and care for each other.

Once again backed by original research, Tapscott and Williams provide vivid new examples of organizations that are successfully embracing the principles of wikinomics.

Anthony D. Williams is a research director at New Paradigm. He teaches at the London School of Economics.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This book need more information! This is not a bad book but it seems like a consultant wrote this book as an outline but not as a book. There is plenty of cheer leading but no how did they do this.

Editorial Reviews

"MacroWikinomics takes the art of mass collaboration and breaks it down to a science with strategies for the rebuilding our institutions for this time of profound change." - Lazaro Campos, CEO, Swift"The MacroWikinomics assertion that 'there has never been a more exciting time to be human' is spot on. The new engine of innovation driven by collaboration, openness, stewardship and the power of the social web gives all of us an opportunity to drive even more rapid, meaningful change across global institutions. This is particularly relevant for the technology industry, which has always been about enabling human potential." - Michael Dell, President and CEO, Dell inc."Tapscott and Williams are the world's foremost thought leaders in the arena where human behavior, digital innovation and societal challenges intersect. Each of us—whether leaders of global institutions or individual citizens of the world—would be wise to follow their counsel as we attempt to mitigate the challenges and embrace the opportunities we collectively face." - Brian J. Dunn, CEO, Best Buy Co., Inc."MacroWikinomics connects the big picture of business, culture and society with what is really going on in the trenches of the new digital world. Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams re-affirm their authority by offering facts in the style of demographers and by storytelling in the manner of acute social observers. Leaders of the future must take their lessons on co-creation and authenticity to heart." - Brian Fetherstonhaugh, Chairman and CEO, OgilvyOne"When Tapscott and Williams released Wikinomics, it heralded a new era of collaboration —one that has had a profound impact on how business is done. Now with MacroWikinomics, they sow how business, government and civil society and people everywhere can leverage technology to work together in new ways to solve the greatest problems of our multi-polar world. Critical reading for those who want to help shape the new agenda." - Bill Green, Chairman and CEO, Accenture"Macrowikinomics sets out comprehensively and holistically, what it will take to reset the post crisis world, harnessing the power of the Net and the NetGeneration." - Ian Hudson, President EMEA, Dupont"Once again Don and Anthony nailed it. There is no better team to tell us what's coming next. This is a must read if you want to know how mass collaboration in a re-booted world will transform us." - Jeff Joerres, Chairman and CEO, ManPower"Like Lewis and Clark for the digital age, Tapscott and Williams have explored the borders, boundaries and landscape of the new interdependent world. They are the cartographers of the 21st century and Macrowikinomics is a map for the transformational voyage we surely must take." - Kevin Kelly, CEO, Heidrick and Struggles"A magnificent work, Tapscott and Williams guide us through the labyrinth of a new world where everything is being redesigned by collaboration on the Internet. MacroWikinomics follows the threads of collective intelligence as they reweave the fabric of our institutions." - Kevin Kimberlin, Chairman of Spencer Trask & Co"A provocative and powerful series of ideas and case studies which challenge every leader to seize the opportunity to "make a difference." The fresh perspectives in Macrowikonomics should inspire all of us to collaborate in new ways to leverage talent and ideas from every corner of the world and develop new solutions to meet the challenges we are facing today." - Craig Mulhauser, CEO, Celestica"A Masterpiece. An iconic & defining book for our time. Macrowikinomics shows us a future ready to be shaped (and saved) by a global network of extracurricular thinkers. Once again, Don and Anthony prove that in the new global economy it's much better to throw ideas than to throw elbows. Take heart and take heed, technology has shrunk the world so we can grow it anew. And the seeds are all in here." - Mark Parker, CEO, Nike Inc."Tapscott and Williams have crafted a blueprint to a better world for our children. Macrowikinomics defines the agenda for systemic change we need, and ignore at our peril." - Kal Patel, Executive Vice President, Best Buy"Majestic—breathtaking in its breadth, coverage, and richness of detail. Don and Anthony have taken the trends of collaboration, openness, sharing, integrity and interdependence, and placed them in pragmatic real-life contexts across a plethora of spheres covering government and citizenship, healthcare, education, transportation, media and banking. Thoroughly recommended for anyone who's interested in seeing how the world is changing." - JP Rangaswami, Chief Scientist, BT Group PLC"Tapscott and Anthony Williams' insights about the power of collaborative innovation and open systems, and their call to 'reboot' our institutions—usiness, education, media, government—hasn't come a minute too soon. Macrowikinomics inspires by chronicling these pathbreaking developments and pointing the way forward for all of us." - Eric Schmidt, CEO Google"A rich and expansive guide to not only adapting to but also mastering our digital future. A must read for any decision maker!" - Klaus Scwabb, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum"MacroWikinomics underscores the critical importance of transparency, participation and collaboration among business, government and citizens in addressing global challenges like corruption." - Nancy Zucker Boswell, Managing Director, Transparency International
