Megatrends shaping the future of workspace

Megatrends shaping the future of workspace | Business change | Scoop.it

he nature of work is changing. What we do during working hours, how we interact, exchange information, and the activities we perform at work are leagues away from the white collar worker of decades past.

 

We have closed the door on the industrial economy and have entered the knowledge economy. Our raw material is no longer tangible, it is made up of ideas and information.

 

Traditional work environments, closed cells, dull aesthetics and inflexible work areas no longer support the activities we conduct in the office, and consequently, the face of the ‘standard’ workplace is changing.

Is Content Marketing the Hot New Trend?

Is Content Marketing the Hot New Trend? | Business change | Scoop.it
More companies and B2B marketers are now recognizing the power of content marketing and the effect it is having on customer engagement and brand awareness. Even B2C Companies such as Coca Cola and American Express are embracing content marketing.

 

Why is content marketing so hot today?

 

As Jeff explains in his blog post, content publishing has been around quite some time. My partner and I have been blogging since it appeared on the Web. But it's only been in the last 6-9 months that the "distribution technologies" have made it possible to easily, quickly, and inexpensively distribute your content to your intended target audience.

 

Are you taking advantage of these "distribution technologies" Jeff refers to like Scoop.it?

Think Different? Real diversity means getting past groupthink.

Think Different? Real diversity means getting past groupthink. | Business change | Scoop.it
Don’t assume that meeting your diversity goals will help you avoid groupthink. People who look different may agree on pretty much everything.

 

Diversity was never supposed to be limited to skin color, gender, or ethnicity. It also promised to help generate a broader range of thoughts, opinions, and perspectives—and help overcome the curse of groupthink.

 

Any number of recent articles and books have urged executive teams and corporate boards to foster discussion and disagreement. Only from constructive conflict, we’ve been told, can out-of-the-box opinions and ideas emerge. In short, everyone—really, everyone—agrees that groupthink should be avoided like the plague and that new ideas are as good as gold.

 

But even though most big companies long ago established formal diversity goals and programs, initiatives aimed at creating fresh ideas, planting the seeds of greater innovation and fostering contrarian views that serve as a hedge against costly mistakes, have—with relatively few exceptions—failed.

 

Miserably.
