Tools, Schmools: It's Really About Community Management

Tools, Schmools: It's Really About Community Management | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
“What we really need is our own private company Instagram, or maybe a chat-app just for employees” said no reasonable manager ever. So why is it that we’re seeing those very tools pop up in the enterprise market? Modern enterprise collaboration leaders are on the hunt for mobile technology solutions that empower employees on the go. As knowledge workers spend less time at their desks, companies are scrambling to stay ahead in a BYOD, socially-fueled, cloud-based environment. B Topic: Social Business.

A cornerstone of IT leadership: Letting your teams have a voice

A cornerstone of IT leadership: Letting your teams have a voice | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
With the onset of new technologies such as hybrid IT, cloud and open source software, I think a cornerstone of IT leadership is to work with your people to ensure that they understand that their skills are relevant and transferable — and to let them have a voice. It’s very important to be engaged with your people, because if you’re not connected to them then a void opens up leading to turnover and employees may end up doing a lot of different things that are not aligned to your department or company goals.

Eliminating fear culture can save operational costs and jobs, says Pfizer

Eliminating fear culture can save operational costs and jobs, says Pfizer | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
Pfizer reduced costs 40% without cutting jobs at a facility in Sweden using an alternative approach to organisational and cultural behaviour, and hopes to do the same at its newly acquired Austrian plant.

What it means to be a corporate rebel. The interesting question is weather Pfizer will take this on board and deploy it, or, at least, deploy the principles at stake here, or reject the whole experience (and fire the guy).

Leadership: Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Leadership: Stupid Is As Stupid Does | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
I have long held to the belief that leadership exists to disrupt mediocrity. However my observation is that many in positions of leadership tend to protect the status quo (mediocrity’s best friend) at all costs.

Anne Landreat's curator insight, December 23, 2014 5:00 PM

Here’s the thing – if leaders are stuck in the past, their organizations will be forced to travel a very rough road to the future. Leadership isn’t destination based – it’s a continuum. Great leaders think beyond the outcome. They think about what if and what’s next. They don’t get trapped in the journey to a specific destination, but remain in constant search of discovery in order to seek new and better opportunities. Anything in business can be improved, everything can be reimagined, and many things can flat out be eliminated.

Beyond Hierarchies

Beyond Hierarchies | Acting for Change | Scoop.it
The way we manage our organizations is largely ineffective for the complex challenges we face, whether driven by the environment, demographics, economics, or politics.Hierarchies assume that management knows best and that the higher up the hierarchy, the more competent and knowledgeable that person is. But hierarchies are merely centralized networks. They work well when information flows mostly in one direction: down. Hierarchies are good for command and control. They are handy to get things done in small groups. But hierarchies are rather useless to create, innovate, or change. Hierarchies a
