1 Bst Cperatin in Slidarity ecnmy WeZer glbal white paper Sybille Saint Girns Assciatin Valeureux WeZer is an pen surce platfrm built t make businesses and cmmunities mre effective. It is a prduct f Valeureux, The Factry f Cmmn gds Wealth Actualisatin Tls, which is studying, designing and teaching fr many years abut cperatin and sharing value. As a sftware prduct, WeZer aims t bring many tls nrmally fund separately int ne envirnment, where they will be mre effective, mre integrated, and easier t use. versin 1.0, August pages. Persnally r in rganisatins yu are invlved in: D yu have ideas that can make a better wrld? D yu challenge t cllect resurces needed t manifest them? D yu need mre participative prcesses while nt knwing hw t escape frm hierarchical r chatic systems? As a platfrm, and a distributin f Od (ex Open ERP), anyne is invited t cntribute plugins. Are yu fed up f sharing pinins, and wish t create effective slutins? As a tl, WeZer supprts the latest thinking in rganisatinal management and cllective intelligence. Is that yu can n lnger stand t see attentin put almst nly n cmpetitin, glry and shrt term prfits? WeZer is mre than a tl, it s a full device cmpsed by a web app, an implementatin jurney, a cmmunity and a research prgram. WeZer is a systemic slutin t bst cperatin, t dynamise the We! In the case yu ve replied Yes t sme f them, WeZer is fr yu and yur rganisatin!

Unfrtunately, in ur current western wrld, these essential wrks are nt receiving resurces, expertise, tls, visibility and impact they deserve and need t make it happen. Mainstreams d nt respect scial mvements, which are thus unsupprted and unattractive. Mrever we all think smewhere inside f us that these peple are utpian, irrelevant, needy, charity washers, burdens, crazies Even amng them Scial rganisatins need cnstantly t cmprmise, t cmpete, what islated them. They have t make miracles with tape and scissrs, t cpe with high staff turnvers and cnstant grants cut and all these disperse their energies. As slidarity actrs we dive frm hpe and energy, t dubt and depressin. As daily citizens we cmplain and hpe smene, smewhere will change The System. Hw much psych-sci-ec damages are needed t shift? Hw lng will we wait t dare t include quality t quantity, feminine t masculine, subjective t bjective and frm there, create empwering slutins t live well all tgether? Hw d we manifest ur prfund wish?

3 Technlgical slutin chice Discncerted by this diagnstic, we chse t listen and fcus where it s the mst empwering, impactful and feasible. Cperatin appears as a MUST t bst benevlent actins impact. Decades f designing and engineering cperative tls1 (IT and human) shws us that Innvative pstures, rganisatins and relatins request a daily-rted system t manifest what is learned during cperatin wrkshps. Smething is needed t help us being cngruent between ur intents and ur actins. We then decided t equip ur belved cmmunities with a pwerful all-in-ne web platfrm as pwerful as big cmpanies and as cperative as pssible. We believe that a crdinated effrt arund ne handy platfrm might be prductive, and usable fr all the actrs cncerned. Technlgical slutin prblem This decisin came after having tried several existing web apps, nt finding smething effective and accessible, even fr ur wn team. Many slutins prvided bth by Silicn Valley finance and by lne scripters are mnfunctinal, and mst attempt t be glbal in scpe, but shallw. They try t build new cmmunities with peple arund a single tl, technlgy r issue. Users are tired f remembering passwrds, and filling in user prfiles fr every new tl that cmes alng. These tls are nt integrated with each ther f curse, and they knw nthing abut the rganisatinal cntext f their users, such as their appintment diaries, rles in their rganisatins, supply chain lgistics, reputatin systems, etc. Thse wh are wrking, ften fuelled by passin, are thus disempwered and demtivated by a sftware ecsystem which arse frm an bslete capitalist ideal which required that sftware cmpanies shuld cmpete rather than cllabrate. Here are issues we bserve in the current attempts t reply t these needs with a sftware: sil effect inaccessibility ld paradigm apprach Many web apps prvide marketplaces fr gds and services (Ebay, Priceminister, Task Rabbit, Zelc ) which help needs t be satisfied. Here it is still necessary t have resurces befre needs are satisfied, either in the frm f fficial currencies, r gds in case f swapping system (MyRecycleStuff), r trust in gifting exchanges (YuGiveGds, Dnnns). In additin, sil effect wrks here, making yur space f exchange very specific, and thus yu feel scattered as well as yur reputatin. There are als sme gd marketplaces with cmmunity currency included (Cmmunity Frge, CES, Cycls ). Here islatin is cming als frm discnnectin frm daily administrative wrk, such as sales, accunting, supplying, shipping, making it difficult t integrate within an rganisatin. Mrever, mst f them prpse nly ne currency, whereas we prmte mre diversity. Multitude f crwdfunding platfrms exist and succeed. Nevertheless, pwer f crwd is nt yet fully activated due t restricted rules and ephemeral campaigns with n cnnectin t cmmunities real life. Here prmting skills verpass rightness f the calling prject. Furthermre very few apps prpse quality indicatrs, either t evaluate a transactin r t weight prjects glbal benefits. Fcusing nly n quantities factrs will nt make apprpriate actins nr cllective trust t emerge. Different aspects f cllabratin are helped by web apps, sme free (Facebk, Ggle Apps, Basecamp, Trell, Ddle..) and ther payable (Cisc, SalesFrce, Ltus Ntes, MS Prject ). The first are handy 1 See presentatin in bigraphy Sybille Saint Girns 3 / 17

4 while time cnsuming and visibility restricting due t their scattering. The secnd are t expensive in mney and time t implement int slidarity rganisatins. Enterprise resurces planning is served by big ERP (SAP, Sage, Oracle Crpratin ) while SMEs and nn prfits must satisfy themselves as best with Ciel r EBP, and as wrse with Excel r Open Office. Furthermre cnventinal accunting, sales and supplies management accept nly cnventinal currencies and hierarchical prcesses. Innvative rganizatinal ways are served by participatry innvatin platfrm (Tinkuy, Imaginatin Fr Peple, IdeasMine) and demcracy platfrm (Delibera, ClicknSign ). Beynd their usefulness, they are als islated and discnnected frm the real life f the prjects. Sil effect creates a functinality centred view, where user s wealth is sucked frm frtunate startup basting their free services while frgetting t tell us what they d with ur data. Internet fatigue is emerging, peple being tired t replicate their prfile everywhere while having n glbal visin n their actins, nr their fellws. Sme very prmising apps came alng and disappeared. We were lucky t have used them and get lessns frm them. BetterMeans2 was a gd attempt fr cllabrative wrkflw.

6 The pillars f WeZer Cperatin matrix as explained abve has been wven by 20 years f research. It can be seen as an rganic matrix where cells live, resurces flw, tensins are prcessed t get mving actins and creativity. Svereignty empwerment is included in the DNA. Each members and grups can define their wn gvernance and plicies: data transparency rules, means f rewards, fcus, dashbards, access rights Respnsibility, as capacity t respnd, is ur main drive here. Le plus imprtant [ ] n'est pas de gagner mais de participer. Pierre de Cubertin Emergence matrix System is an rganic way f structuring energy t fcus n gals. It can be seen as a ludificatin17 framewrk where winners are the best invlved. It allws cmmunity members t create indicatrs abut what they attune n: what is essential fr their rganisatin, fr themselves, which values, behaviurs, intents, actins they wish t prmte. Then they define rules as usages, levels, rewards, and algrithms using bth quantitative and qualitative metrics. Data are thus cllected and prcessed thrugh flws mnitring and participatry inputs, transfrming them int qualified infrmatin. Awareness is then spntaneusly attracted n what is prmted. Mtin is needed t reach an bjective, and sme infrmatin shw steps dne (number f actins dne, vlume f currencies exchanged, sales amunt ). We call them activatrs. Nevertheless, t be sure t aim the gal, we need aligners. Quality and alignment evaluatins frm users give ways t encurage fcus. Thus we g frm data t infrmatin then t knwledge Emergence matrix applies in mst cntents, such as transactins, prpsitins, demands, wants, best practises, ideas r any flwing infrmatin. It is a System because it s ffering a cmbinatin f several emergence matrix linked by custmisable algrithms. Assessment / Feedback tls. T ften in rganisatins the exuberant is the mst recgnised either persn r cntent. By encuraging users t recgnise each ther's qualities and smetimes rate each ther's actins, the real value creatin is better expsed. Mutual acknwledgement encurages tasks t g t their best likely executrs. By allwing users t subjectively express their feeling f quality, data will be transfrmed in infrmatin, ging ut f Facebk nise t reach Wikipedia s wrth. Supprting wrkflw is critical because this is hw tasks can be shepherded acrss the rganisatin frm cnceptin t realisatin. Even the best supprted rganisatins drp balls because f pr wrkflw prcesses. Here we prpse usual status flws (draft, published, accepted, paid, abrt) and mre cmplex slips. A prject Task can becme a Demand, an accepted Reply may create a Task, an Invice and Accunting recrds, an event may be an Offer Using wrkflws save data entry cnsuming time and give cnsistency by traceability. It als allws innvative flws t be integrated in frmal business, fr instance sales and accunting in cnventinal currency and in cmmunity currency. A multiple custmisable currencies framewrk is set in Marketplace, and sn in all functinalities implying mney such as invice, expenses and accunting. Cmmunities can chse their means f exchange and acknwledgment amng cnventinal and alternative mechanisms. Three categries are ffered: rare, sufficient and abundant. Currencies can be issued within the platfrm r tracked. Members 17 Ludificatin mre than gamificatin, using the whle play dynamics t emulate rather than nly cmpeting rewards Sybille Saint Girns 6 / 17

We bet that a multi-currencies exchange system prvides an effective crwdsurcing tl. Grups, such that all the members f the platfrm will be able t frm and jin fr specific purpse. Frm a cllective intelligence perspective, grups are the 'rgans' f the Cmmunity rganism. Seven types19 f fractal grups allw cmplex ecsystems t be hlarchically structured. Custmisatin is available fr each grup, such as scpe, membrane crssing rules, members duties and rights, managers, wallet Finally 'Rms' plugins, where each rm has the tls fr a grup t d different kinds f activities. An API extending the basic grup will allw develpers t build rms aware f the whle system. The first rms envisaged are: - Deliberative rms prpse cllabrative dcument editing with rles, evaluatins, cmments, side discussins, versining - Decisin making rms with prcess types, rles, evaluatins, cmments, side discussins, alerts, prject cnnectin - Prject actins rms - Standard meeting rms with rles, minutes and actin pints Bernard Lietaer: an ecsystem is viable when efficiency and resilience are balanced.

10 Od is a cmplete framewrk with thusands f integrated mdules including sales, prjects and supplies management. Accunting mdule brings a lt t the prject because it allws us t trace the currencies respecting the state f the accunting art. Here we are way ahead f cncurrence, because mney management is difficult t maintain, in terms f develpment, if it is nt based n sufficiently prven functinal basis. These mdules als pen ur utlk because we can easily integrate the mst interesting features thereafter, such as internal instant messaging (livechat), billing r CRM.
