Judith Rodin’s Required Reading

Judith Rodin’s Required Reading | Business change | Scoop.it
In August 2005, a few months after Judith Rodin was named the first female president of the Rockefeller Foundation, Hurricane Katrina slammed into the U.S. Gulf Coast. In the days, months, and years that followed, the critical importance of resilience — the ability to prepare for systemic disruptions, survive them, and transform them into opportunities for growth — became evident.

Since then, Rodin, an academic by training and a nonprofit leader by profession, has adopted the concept of resilience as a core focus of the Rockefeller Foundation. She is deploying the philanthropic organization’s US$4.2 billion in assets to promote and develop the resilience of cities, organizations, and communities.

The Change Management Cheese

The Change Management Cheese | Business change | Scoop.it

I cannot believe it has taken me this long to create a post on the New York Times business bestseller by Dr. Spencer Johnson, “Who Moved My Cheese?”. This is a brilliantly written parable, which in the most simple way, has succeeding in inspiring millions. “Who Moved My Cheese?” has been an unbelievable success because of its easy to understand metaphors and its relatability.

The story involves four characters who live in a maze: the mice Scurry and Sniff, and two ‘little people’, Hem and Haw. Each one represents a different character trait and shows the various reactions of people to change. Within the personalities of the protagonists, Johnson succeeds in capturing the entire human spectrum of emotions and reactions to change.

As a change manager, it is easy to see why this book is a must read. I personally recommend it as a must read for department managers and upwards in the company’s hierarchy. Understanding the psychology of change is vital. But if you don’t take my word for it; there’s this expert analysis.

Secrets of the Beehive

Secrets of the Beehive | Business change | Scoop.it
Much innovation springs from collaboration in the current age. No longer do the talents required to develop new products, services and processes reside within a single individual, discipline or department. 

In some circumstances, companies need to collaborate with people they don't even "own" or control as innovation turns to the "crowd" for ideas, insights and imagination, such as in Unilever, Innocent and Virgin do. This requires a completely different approach to the management and motivation of such people. HR and OD must respond with strategies and tactics that make horizontal co-operation as important as hierarchical management.

In this brief extract from my new book "Leading Innovation, Creativity and Enterprise" I explore a more organic outlook on OD and Structure, rather than the industrial models that have characterised the last 150 years of thinking on the topic. Here's the slightly whimsical introduction to the chapter on Organisation Structure and Collaboration:

Organizing for the future | McKinsey

Organizing for the future | McKinsey | Business change | Scoop.it
Workforce platforms are therefore likely to provide considerable stability in changeable environments. Agile companies tend to have more fluid structures, in which day-to-day work is organized in smaller teams that often cut across business lines and market segments. Platform-based talent markets might provide a solid structure to help supplement and even replace traditional hierarchies. They could also greatly alter how matrix organizations work.

As the old view of hard and dotted lines begins to fade, companies might choose to group employees by their strongest activities and skills. From this functional home, they could be “rented,” via a talent market, by business-line and project leaders. The result would be at once more stable, since employees would be associated with familiar homes, yet more dynamic, as pla

How To Reinvent An Entire Industry

How To Reinvent An Entire Industry | Business change | Scoop.it
Many companies have already gone through digital transformation in the enterprise, and have even expanded digital initiatives to a wider business ecosystem, but what about extending digital transformation across an entire industry? To reinvent an industry through digital innovation, you need to rethink every component of the business model.

Redesigning a digital ecosystem can take companies and industries in entirely new directions, where they have to alter the ways that they have traditionally done business, affecting resources, processes, costs, revenue structures, and customer value proposition.

In the whitepaper, Ctrl-alt-del: Rebooting the Business Model for the Digital Age, Capgemini Consulting highlights five different approaches to business model innovation that can affect industries:

Three Lessons On Innovation I Learned During My 12 Years At Apple

Three Lessons On Innovation I Learned During My 12 Years At Apple | Business change | Scoop.it
Before Apple Music, before the iPad, even before the mp3, I had a front-row seat and backstage access to the digital music revolution.

During my 12-year tenure at Apple, from the late ’80s and to the early 2000s, I helped lead the team that launched some of Apple's earliest innovations in music and entertainment. We developed the strategies, marketing initiatives, and relationships with content creators and media companies—across music, film, and TV—that laid the foundations that iTunes and subsequent innovations were later build upon.

Since then, my friend and colleague Dave Ulmer has literally written the book (or one of them, anyway) on innovation and corporate culture. Drawing on his work in The Innovator’s Extinction, here are three key lessons that characterize my experience at Apple and strike me as more relevant than ever today.

Two Assumptions That Block Change 

Two Assumptions That Block Change  | Business change | Scoop.it
“If people really didn’t like change, everyone would still be living at home with their parents. They wouldn’t change jobs, or even hairstyles. It is simply not true that people are anti-change,” Shea explains. In fact, he says, during the past decade, a body of scientific data has grown that shows humans have been remarkably adaptive over time, in very fundamental ways. “Our capacity to adapt may in fact be one of the key skills that separates us from other creatures. We are very change-capable, and can embrace change when we decide it is important.”

Brain Based Enterprises

Brain Based Enterprises | Business change | Scoop.it
Nearly 30 years ago, Fred Moody and Bill Gates recognized that the basis of competitive advantage had fundamentally shifted from the agrarian age to the industrial era to the information superhighway, when it was commented that Microsoft’s only factory asset is the human imagination. The corresponding shift is from what could be crudely called Brawn Based Industries (BBIs) to Brain Based Enterprises (BBEs).

Research has shown that our brains absorbed five times more information every day as compared with 1986. During our leisure time every day, each of us processes 34 gigabytes, or 100,000 words. In such a world, strategy changes from a long-range plan to a flexible posture, where the half-life of knowledge is in freefall and success depends on creativity as a key input and innovation a key output. Adapt, innovate or die has never been more true in an age of exponential information growth and discontinuity.

Disrupting beliefs: A new approach to business-model innovation 

Disrupting beliefs: A new approach to business-model innovation  | Business change | Scoop.it
Let’s face it: business models are less durable than they used to be. The basic rules of the game for creating and capturing economic value were once fixed in place for years, even decades, as companies tried to execute the same business models better than their competitors did. But now, business models are subject to rapid displacement, disruption, and, in extreme cases, outright destruction. Consider a few examples:

Bitcoin bypasses traditional banks and clearinghouses with blockchain technology.
Coursera and edX, among others, threaten business schools with massive open online courses (MOOCs).1
Tencent outcompetes in Internet services through microtransactions.
Uber sidesteps the license system that protects taxicab franchises in cities around the world.
The examples are numerous—and familiar. But what’s less familiar is how, exactly, new entrants achieve their disruptive power. What enables them to skirt constraints and exploit unseen possibilities? In short, what’s the process of business-model innovation?

In the beginning, you share your dream with others and persuade them to take a leap into the unknown.

So you act as a torchbearer, illuminating the path from here to there by helping them understand where they are headed and what the journey ahead will look like. You describe your vision vividly and compellingly so that your fellow travelers long to see it become reality.

Ten Habits of Highly Creative People

Ten Habits of Highly Creative People | Business change | Scoop.it

What exactly is creativity? So many of us assume that creativity is something we had as a child but we lost, or something allocated to rarified individuals that we can only admire from afar.
But science has shown that, in many ways, we are all wired to create. The key is recognizing that creativity is multifaceted—on the level of the brain, personality, and the creative process—and can be displayed in many different ways, from the deeply personal experience of uncovering a new idea or experience to expressing ourselves through words, photos, fashion, and other everyday creations, to the work of renowned artists that transcends the ages.
Neuroscientists who study creativity have found that creativity does not involve a single brain region or even a single side of the brain, as the “right brain” myth of creativity suggests; instead, it draws on the whole brain. This complex process consists of many interacting cognitive systems (both conscious and unconscious) and emotions, with different brain regions recruited to handle each task and to work together as a team to get the job done.

5 Reasons Why Most Change Management Initiatives Fail | CustomerThink

5 Reasons Why Most Change Management Initiatives Fail | CustomerThink | Business change | Scoop.it
While success is what we strive for, failure — at least initially — is what many of us experience.

Over the years, I have come across many companies that have a desire to change – they want to change organizational culture, improve customer service, increase employee engagement, and approach leadership in a new way. These companies have a common goal in mind – they want to change the way they do business in order to grow, remain competitive and be profitable.

They also share another commonality – they fail to understand the process of change management and how to make change stick.

Change is not an event, it’s a process that takes time, and making change stick starts with an effective change management plan. As I have stated previously in A NO EXCUSE Approach to Make Change Stick and Drive Employee Engagement:

“Making change stick is challenging, and keeping your team engaged and accountable throughout the process can be even more of a challenge. Framing change the right way, having a strong change management plan, allowing your team to provide input in how change will take place, and giving change time to take place will give it a batter chance to stick and keep your people engaged during the transition.”

The following outlines some of the key reasons why change management fails:
