Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work - Brian Solis | Business change | Scoop.it

When it comes to the future of work “late adopter is equivalent to out of business.” The question that you should be asking yourselves is what is your organizations doing about these five trends to make sure that you can succeed in the new world of work? If your organization doesn’t think about and plan for the future of work then your organization will have no future.

Tells a good story of a disastrous change management approach and explains why it failed. Alas, this story is a universal one and I still do not understand why most people «managing» changes still insist on doing the same mistakes over and over again. You just cannot decide for anybody when, how and how much they will change; they will just fight you back !...as you will do yourself if someone tries this «change recipe» on you, right ?

The Strategic Value of Saying No

Pursuing initiatives that are "off" strategy lowers your chances of being successful. To execute strategy successfully, you must say NO!

Don Dea's curator insight, August 19, 11:58 PM

Try it again. This time with conviction: “NO.”

Strategy is inherently about saying “no.” It’s about the choices we make and the choices we don’t. I’ve seen plenty of strategies completely derailed due to an inability to say “no” to that incremental initiative that’s kind of “on strategy” but not really.

Good strategists are great at leading the thinking (and I believe leading the thinking is so critical to leadership that it has its own entire section in my bookOne Piece of Paper – click here to get your copy). As a leader, your job is to lead the thought processes and strategic efforts of your team. That requires you to invest time in thinking about your strategy.

The Innovation Steering Committee as a Guiding Coalition to Change Culture

The Innovation Steering Committee as a Guiding Coalition to Change Culture | Business change | Scoop.it

Today, meetings consume close to 40-50% of executive time. That’s 100 days per year! By some measures 80% of meeting time could be better invested in closing business, developing talent, recruiting new customers, conceiving new products or improving operations – just about anything other than gathering for another conversation without productive outcomes.

Error reduction interferes with gaining insights

Error reduction interferes with gaining insights | Business change | Scoop.it

Is your organization  focused on merely reducing errors or is it also promoting ways to improve insight?

"Fifty-eight of the top Fortune 200 companies bought into Six Sigma, attesting to the appeal of eliminating errors. The results of this “experiment” were striking: 91 per cent of the Six Sigma companies failed to keep up with the S&P 500 because Six Sigma got in the way of innovation. It interfered with insights." – Gary Klein

David Hain's insight:

In complex change (most of it!)  you need to understand the environment - the Cynefin framework helps.

Great scoop here via @CelineSchill.  


I really agree with this statement:


Momentum is one of the hardest aspects of change: you can easily create disturbance, but like ripples on the water, it soon fades away. True change requires momentum over time, and that can only be generated from within the community, not input from outside.


It's socially created and socially moderated, so almost by definition, it requires engagement from the community.

Change Management is dead: Long Live Change Leadership | Business change | Scoop.it

I remember back in the 1990's when I became a project manager. I especially remember my first project management course, in 1991, where the instructor dramatically announced that more than 50% of projects fail.

And today, in 2014, not much has changed. CIO magazine reports that the failure rate remains about the same.

Constant change is the new normal

Constant change is the new normal | Business change | Scoop.it

Business is becoming ever more complex and according to several major studies less than half the global CEO population feel their organisations are able and prepared to handle the level of complexity they are facing – let alone the level they expect to face in the future.

Many industries have had some tough years with recession, increased competition, changing consumer behavior, rapidly shifting technologies and emerging disruptive business models.

What does it take to respond to these challenges?

(From the article): Many of the new changes and occurrences are both new and difficult to forecast which was not the case in the past, so businesses have to become more agile and robust to be able to succeed in the new environment. This too will become normal.

Can Creativity Be Learned? | Business change | Scoop.it

Prevailing theories on creativity focus on methodology, or amount of practice. But two new studies suggest artistic talent may be more hard-wired than we thought.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, July 17, 10:27 AM

The first study, published in a recent issue of Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, found that highly creative individuals have more activity in the part of the brain containing the ability to make original associations, to blend information from various scenarios and experiences (known as “conceptual integration”), and to understand complex metaphors and comparisons.


The second studypublished in the June 2014 edition of Creativity Research Journal, found that people who have brains that process information faster can also make more diverse connections and original associations, a hallmark of creativity. Because there’s not an obviously confounding relationship between information processing speed and creativity.
