The work presented explore the impact of cultural resources on productivity of the firm, in particular a network firm. Culture resources is considered a primary attractor of competences and generator of new knowledges. Our main aim is to compare formal organization with informal one oriented to bottom up mechanism to decision vs. a hierarchical mechanism of a formal organization. The first one is better represented by ecological mechanism where deliberate decision and unexpected consequences converge towards a new state of ecologies of value, adapted particularly to complex context (high uncertainty and complexity) as in case of a meta-corporation. That dynamic meta-corporation is sustained by communities of practice and epistemic communities as in case of H-Farm, a network - firm in north-east of Italy as a complex incubator of new emergent specialized sub-firms. Sharing value of meaning and horizontal and participating trajectories of decision sustain an emergent form of a meta-corporation higly adapted in a complex world of global innovation.
