This mindmap is a gathering of a few manifesto's and statements. Not intended to be complete or accurate, it never will. Feal free to add inspiration or enhancements.
I made this mindmap because I care about our World and where it is heading. Because of the visualized scope I have chosen and the corresponding complexity it will remain in eternal draft, will never be complete and will allways highlight only a very very tiny part of some of the relevant parts. It's only meant as an inspirational vehicle, nothing more. To prevent any kind of (commercial) (mis)use, this work is licensed as Creative Commons

The Stoos Statement
Reflecting on leadership in organizations today, we find ourselves in a bit of a mess.
We see reliance on linear, mechanistic thinking, companies focusing more on stock
price than delighting customers, and knowledge workers whose voices are ignored
by the bosses who direct them.
All these factors are reflected in the current economic crisis, increased inequity,
bankruptcies and widespread disillusionment.
There has to be a better way.
In January 2012, a diverse group of twenty one people including senior executives,
business strategists, managers, academics, and lean/agile development practitioners
from four continents, met in Stoos, Switzerland.
We believe that we uncovered some of the common characteristics of that better way.
For example, that organizations can become learning networks of individuals creating
value and that the role of leaders should include the stewardship of the living rather
than the management of the machine.
Most importantly, we committed to continue our work, both in-person and online.
A problem this size will require many minds and hearts.
We’d love to hear your voice and your experience.
Help move the conversation forward by joining our LinkedIn Group
and on twitter with hashtag #stoos.
Let’s start the transformation, before it’s too late.
A powerful global conversation has begun.
Through the Internet, people are discovering and inventing new ways
to share relevant knowledge with blinding speed. As a direct result,
markets are getting smarter—and getting smarter faster than most companies.
The Cluetrain Manifesto is a set of 95 theses organized and put forward as a
manifesto, or call to action, for all businesses operating within what is
suggested to be a newly-connected marketplace.
Towards a Better "Managed" World
Manifesto for Self-Organization
Manifestos are from an era when information moved slowly,
but at the speed of light, there’s no time to declare your intentions …
everything is made public as it happens.
Today a traditional manifesto arrives as a footnote to reality,
just in time to make sense of a motion that’s already transpired.
Our actions and the reactions they excite are now the only
meaningful declaration possible. The manifesto can no longer
be separated from the reality it hopes to manifest.

The Sabbath Manifesto
Manifesto for Free Radicals:Less
Paperwork, Less Waiting, More
We do work that is, first and foremost, intrinsically rewarding.
But, when we make an impact, we expect extrinsic validation:
We don't create solely for ourselves, we want to make a real
and lasting impact in the world around us.
We demand freedom, whether we work within companies or
on our own, to run experiments, participate in multiple projects
at once, and move our ideas forward. We thrive on flexibility
and are most productive when we feel fully engaged.
We make stuff often, and therefore, we fail often. Ultimately,
we strive for little failures that help us course-correct along the
way, and we view every failure as a learning opportunity, part
of our experiential education.
We have little tolerance for the friction of bureaucracy,
old-boy-networks, and antiquated business practices.
As often as possible, we question "standard operating procedure"
and assert ourselves. But even when we can't, we don't surrender
to the friction of the status quo. Instead, we find clever ways
(and hacks) around it.
We don't create solely for ourselves, we want to make a real
and lasting impact in the world around us.
We expect to be fully utilized and constantly optimized,
regardless of whether we're working in a startup or a large
organization. When our contributions and learning plateau,
we leave. But when we're leveraging a large company's resources
to make an impact in something we care about, we are thrilled!
We want to always be doing our best work and making the
greatest impact we can.
We consider "open source" technology, API's, and the vast
collective knowledge of the Internet to be our personal arsenal.
Wikipedia, Quora, and open communities for designers, developers,
and thinkers were built by us and for us. Whenever possible, we
leverage collective knowledge to help us make better decisions
for ourselves and our clients. We also contribute to these open
resources with a "pay it forward" mentality.
We believe that "networking" is sharing. People listen to (and follow)
us because of our discernment and curatorial instinct. As we share
our creations as well as what fascinates us, we authentically build
a community of supporters that give us feedback, encouragement,
and lead us to new opportunities. For this reason and more, we often
(though, not always) opt for transparency over privacy.
We believe in meritocracy and the power of online networks and
peer communities to advance our ability to do what we love, and
do well by doing it. We view competition as a positive motivator
rather than a threat, because we want the best idea – and the best
execution – to triumph.
We make a great living doing what we love. We consider ourselves
as both artisans and businesses. In many cases, we are our own
accounting department, Madison Avenue marketing agency, business
development manager, negotiator, and salesperson. We spend the
necessary energy to invest in ourselves as businesses – leveraging
the best tools and knowledge (most of which are free and online) to
run ourselves as a modern-day enterprise.
