Harish, what are your experiences with C2 builder? Do you use it?
Hans Duchardt's comment, October 1, 2013 11:02 AM
At my host I create an invitation page to invite visitors to write their own impressions/experience for a certain topic (mainly places in my hometown, a travel destination) and these "comments" of a minimum of 250-300 words plus pictures create a brand new page on MY site and adds quite some value. Content2 is something which should become soon main stream. It's catching on.

Dynamism and Discontinuity: Eight Trends in the Business Environment that will Shape Strategy | Business change | Scoop.it

The need for bold strategies to capitalise on the dynamism of our times has never been greater. Below, Mike Canning and Eamonn Kelly outline eight trends that are shaping the competitive futures of firms.

 

 

 

A CEO we were helping recently shared a disconcerting but all too frequent observation. It was clear to him that the success factors in his industry were shifting and that his firm’s strategy needed to be reexamined. But it was hard to even begin that process. As he put it, ‘Not only do I lack the right answers, my team and I can’t even figure out the right questions!’

Playing It Safe Is Riskier than You Think

Playing It Safe Is Riskier than You Think | Business change | Scoop.it

It’s time to aim higher. In a very real sense, the first job of leadership is to identify and overcome the costs of complacency. To persuade colleagues at every level that there are genuine risks for the failure to take risks—that the only thing they have to fear, is the fear of change itself.

Never waste a good crisis - the costs of complacency.
