Gary Hamel’s Hierarchy of Employee Traits for the Creative Economy

Over on the Spigit blog, I published Gary Hamel: Hierarchy of Employee Traits for the Creative Economy. It’s notes from his talk last week at the Spigit Customer Summit. The post has the full details, but I wanted to share this graphic from it:

Gary Hamel - Hierarchy of Employee Traits for the Creative Economy

The key point is this: the traits that will determine success in the Creative Economy are different than those that govern the Information Economy. They are much closer to the Enterprise 2.0 ethos than that anything we’ve seen previously. The top three traits are something that employees themselves bring to the job. As Gary Hamel says, they cannot be commanded.

Check out the post for a full description of what Gary Hamel talked about.
