Enter Brand Reality on Open Space Piano Key; time to value passion 

Here's the latest addition to the Open Space Piano (if blog format mangles it lower down look to the European Union version here). Its interesting to see how Open Space and advocates of Brand Reality have been singing the same hymns for years now.

Research at the Claremont Business School led by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - guided by Peter Drucker - has come up with a really interesting model of productive people

More than any other factor (including genetics if I understand correctly) the value multiplying worker is explained by what % of your lifetime have you spent actively learning something that matches those talents you can most make a difference on or purpose that most interests you

We can then infer that the world's most productive organisations are those that match transparency around a deep human purpose that the world wants with maximising its workers' active learning ratios.

In different vocabularies this might be called:
Open Space - Valuing People with Passions enough to give them spaces to self-organise and participate in conflict resolution

Reality Brand Values - ref 0- Origin...1-Japan- a communications and identity system that maximises the company's communal pride in unique organising purpose and individual passion in accomplishment

In systems theory and intangibles valuation governance, self-organising system design and measurements that align this. Similarly for the connections between such policy making capitals as : human, social, intellectual

In a networked knowledge economy and society, shouldn't we be increasing the action learning ratios? Indeed, isnt this going to be the defining advantage between regions that prosper and those that decline relatively to where we were before the internet's connectivity?

please tell us what other disciplines you know of that marry up with this productivity goal? what are their methods or languages for promoting this?
