Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, March 3, 2013 2:45 PM

Great blog on linking Martin Scorsese's POV on his way of working to general Project Management and Leadership: "As I read the list of 7 questions that plague Mr. Scorsese, I had an a-ha moment: if Martin Scorsese deals with these same questions that I do, it makes encountering and tackling them that much easier to deal with."

 

The writer refers to an interview in FastCompany (http://www.fastcompany.com/1793518/martin-scorsese-vision-hollywood)

They also provide sustained learning to enable the acquisition of new habits of mind and behavior (repeat) and the development of new frameworks aligned with the innovation (reframe)."

Daniel Watson's curator insight, January 30, 2013 8:40 PM


Business owners seeking to introduce major changes to their business operations, need to be conscious of the high failure rate of major change initiatives, and take steps to prevent the common causes of such failures.


Vast volumes of literature can be read to determine why change initiatives have such high failure rates, yet for small business owners it is more important to accept that this is the case, and look for easy to understand advice on the key steps to take, to reduce the chances of failure and prevent the associated high costs.


This excellent article, suggests that the final step in making any important business transformation is to make the changes a permanent part of the business operations, and it recommends five key tasks that need to be effectively completed to ensure that the changes required become the normal way of doing business.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, January 26, 2013 3:59 PM

From the article:

"It’s a plague

Victimization is so prevalent today that it has become a defining characteristic of our times, yet it is sometimes difficult to see the devastating effect it has on individuals, organizations, and the whole of society. We live in an era where we hardly notice when people shirk their responsibilities, expect something or someone else to take care of their problem, or go underground with their complaints and suggestions because it would be too expensive to openly try to do something themselves. Victimization is becoming our norm, in part, because we are adjusting to its commonness. The tolerance for capitulating to this kind of mindset as an acceptable standard has reached unprecedented highs.

In virtually all aspects of society, the level of courage and discipline required to be an influencer seems to be in short supply and is becoming more rare all the time. At its current rate of growth, the victim mindset may become dominant in some settings where the majority of the people feel marginalized—including those in leadership positions. The result would be victims leading victims…not a formula for an optimistic outlook for our species."

Trailblazers: 11 People Changing Business

Trailblazers: 11 People Changing Business | Business change | Scoop.it

A trailblazer is a special breed in business. Fortune set out to identify entrepreneurs whose very young companies -- they had to have been officially launched in the past five years -- are already disrupting industries or changing the way businesses or consumers behave. But this isn't just a group of innovators. They're business leaders: Each of these founders is also the CEO (or equivalent) of his or her company. At a startup, that often means setting a vision and a strategy while managing the business, winning customers, motivating employees, and crucially, figuring out ways to remove the challenges that stand in the way of the company's success. And isn't knocking down barriers the very definition of trailblazing?
