Here are three beliefs I hold that underpin nearly everything I do in my work.
I might be wrong about them and I’m certain that there are plenty who would disagree with them. Nor do I have any data that would prove that these assertions are true … yet.
But I’m committed to creating the change that will make these seem obvious — in hindsight.
I believe that we are entering a golden age for digital journalism
I believe news organisations have commercial, civic and artistic imperatives and it’s possible to for an organisation to fulfill all three
I believe these are the ways in which newsrooms can thrive financially and do better journalism:
- By conversing with our readers instead of broadcasting to them
- By having well-managed small teams doing projects alongside a ‘production line’ of news
- By breaking down traditional silos of editorial, commercial and technology
What are your assertions?
Thanks to my altMBA alumni, particularly those in the intrapreneur slack channel, for the prompt that led to this post.
