Instant Project Visibility | LeanKit | Business change | Scoop.it
LeanKit is a simple, visual project and process management tool that allows organizations to easily visualize and manage the flow of their work, while collaborating with team members to consistently deliver results.

 

Online, Visual Project Boards

 

In LeanKit, you map your organization’s processes onto virtual whiteboards. On each board the process steps are represented as vertical and horizontal lanes. Cards represent work items, which team members update and move from across the board as they complete their share of the work.

 

Rather than having to ask for status reports, managers and customers can just look at the board. Board updates are visible in seconds around the globe and e-mail alerts and RSS feeds are available, so you and your team can take immediate action to resolve issues before they turn into serious problems.

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?

The Innovation Bottom Line

The Innovation Bottom Line | Business change | Scoop.it
A BCG–MIT Sloan Management Review survey found that 23 percent of companies are not only profiting from their sustainability efforts but also changing their business models to generate that profit.

 

Sustainability is paying off for a growing number of companies, according to our fourth annual survey of executives and managers, conducted jointly with MIT Sloan Management Review. Thirty-seven percent of respondents say that sustainability-related actions have added to their company’s profit, up 23 percent from the previous year.

 

This increase owes much to business model innovation. Nearly half of the companies have changed their business models as a result of sustainability opportunities—a 20 percent jump over last year. This type of innovation addresses the fundamental choices a company makes about what it is offering to whom, as well as how it leverages its value chain, cost models, and organization. Such changes are significant, but no less so than the changes facing businesses.

Je mets en avant ce qui me plait dans l'article : "To understand what it takes to make sustainability a boon rather than a burden, it helps to look at the companies that are not only profiting from their sustainability efforts but also changing their business models to generate that profit. We call them Sustainability-Driven Innovators, and they make up 23 percent of our survey respondents."

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."
