The phenomenon of ‘digital Do It Yourself’ (DiDIY) has much to offer to creative society. By ‘creative society’ we mean the levels of creativity in society – which are vital for both personal well-being and economic growth. The rise of online communication has meant that for many years now creative people have been able to share ideas, have conversations and inspire each other via the internet.
The DiDIY phenomenon shakes organizational roles by enabling disintermediation of experts. This is a key assumption of the project, and the specific subject of the sub-project (work package) named “DiDIY impact on work and organizations” (work package leader: Aurelio Ravarini, LIUC)
By exploiting the availability and ease of use of Digital Technologies, organizational roles typically dependent on experts (internal or external to the organization) can carry out - autonomously - innovative practices.
