An International Art Project on Freedom

  • Alfred Mevissen
Part of the Future of Business and Finance book series (FBF)


The author shares his experience acquired in the international project ‘Pillars of Freedom’ on the topic of freedom outside the organization; some concepts appropriate for organizations can be deduced from these experiences. Radical rethinking is needed—from organizations characterized by safety considerations and strictly target-oriented behaviour towards cooperative approaches governed by possibilities that open up with project-oriented working and various connectivities. Mobile units with maximum decision-making power will be established and use the possibilities of digital cross-border cooperation with alternating partners. Compliance issues and health and safety training will be replaced by self-regulating mechanisms governed by transparency in action. Thus, organizations will be better prepared to keep pace with the speed of information explosion and changing starting positions.
