Great article that reinforces without a culture of trust in an organization, success is impossible. Particularly like the statement, "It is the relationships we forge—and the trust we create—that matters most to our success at the end of the day."

What Will Global Manufacturing Look Like in Five Years? - Billee.ca | Accounting | Scoop.it
Many divergent opinions exist on the future of global manufacturing. All else aside, electronic funds transfers, and a switch to the digital economy probably have a lot to do with the future of manufacturing.
Billee's insight:

Though the Wall Street journal recently ran a feature on this issue, they forgot to talk about the importance of electronic funds, digital economies, and the confluence of alternative monetary strategies in the global manufacturing sector. The impact could be more important than you think.

The Workforce in the Cloud

The Workforce in the Cloud | Accounting | Scoop.it

FOR translating a 22-minute video from English into Spanish at short notice, 7Brands Global Content, a professional-translation firm based in New York, quoted “approximately $1,500”. This fee seems in line with the local going rate for the job from a firm which boasts membership of three professional associations and clients such as Chase and Bank of America. Not so long ago, paying the local rate was the only option. Today anyone seeking to get this sort of job done is only a click away from the whole world of professionals competing to do it far cheaper.

That same translation job was advertised on Elance.com and oDesk.com, the two busiest among several newish online marketplaces for work, or “talent exchanges”. On Elance it soon attracted 25 bids, from individuals in 15 countries. For around half the bidders, this would be their first job, which raised questions about how good their work would be (especially the Uruguayan who promised to “translate your interview perfetly”). But some seemed competent. According to his Elance page, “oswaldo g”, from Colombia, has already completed 31 jobs, earning a combined $4,193 and a satisfaction rating of 4.9 (out of 5). He quoted a tempting $16.44 an hour—though not as tempting as the five bids on oDesk (three of them by five-star-rated workers), from Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico and the Philippines. Each of them offered a flat rate for the completed job, ranging from $33.33 down to just $22.22.

“Talent exchanges” on the web are starting to transform the world of work.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, July 3, 2013 3:53 AM

There is a new rise in online companies, which can offer cheaper and faster services, with the smart use of talent (often freelancers and temps) "in the cloud", for all kinds of online work such as translation jobs. Examples are Elance.com and oDesk.com "the two busiest among several newish online marketplaces for work, or “talent exchanges”." Moreover, "the exchanges are providing opportunities not just to do one-off jobs, but to build a business."

A DIY Guide to Making a Professional Business Video | Business 2 Community

A DIY Guide to Making a Professional Business Video | Business 2 Community | Accounting | Scoop.it

Quality is of paramount importance when producing a video for your business. A lackluster production, or just a poorly inspired concept for either a training or a sales enablement video can mean more than just a lost opportunity for business or growth, it can also be a public relations liability. Case in point is the now infamous Star Trek inspired training video created by the Internal Revenue Service. Produced to the tune of a 60 thousand dollar tax payer funded price tag, that video should serve as the gold standard of what NOT to do when creating internal training videos or marketing collateral that uses video....

VIDEO is a key component of the digital marketing mix, especially if it is posted on Youtube and embedded on a website, thereby enhancing SEO performance.

Good advice here. I particularly like the information regarding audio quality. There is no bigger turn-off in a corporate – or any other – video than poor sound.

Jeff Domansky's comment, May 7, 2013 1:58 PM
Totally agree David. Audio quality makes the difference between OK and great!
