Here are some pictures Rob La Gesse sent me– people at Rackspace who downloaded my cartoons off the web, printed them out and hung them on their walls.
“Crap jobs are created by other people, dream jobs you make yourself” and “Life is short, Make it amazing”.
No “Reason Why” to buy the Rackspace product. No top-down mission statement.
Nope. Instead I tried to talk about stuff that ACTUALLY MATTER to people inside and outside the company.
Like I said in my last post, ALIGNMENT is where the action is.
“A brand’s first job is to be interesting”. Aligned brands are far more interesting than brands that just want somebody else’s money.
Just because you work for a big company doesn’t mean you don’t have to think about REAL human values. In fact, it’s more important than ever.
Think about it.

The wit here seems like an agent of cubical renewal. Subscribed.
Can you explain alignment further? Vision-purpose-execution-creation?
I’m not sure what it says about me/the compnay I work for but my desk decorations are 3 plush/stuffed Angry Birds, the XKCD maps of the internet and a slide about the Heirarchy of Robot Needs (last step, self actualisation, destroy all humans). It could just mean I spend too much time on the internet
