2012 Cisco Connected World Technology Report - Gen Y: New Dawn for work, play, identity

2012 Cisco Connected World Technology Report - Gen Y: New Dawn for work, play, identity | Business change | Scoop.it
The first chapter in the 2012 Cisco Connected World Technology Report builds on last year's report by examining how Gen Y creates increasing loads of data while impacting everything from on-line shopping to mobile devices to corporate culture and workforce expectations.

At the heart of this year's study is the smart-phone and the constant connectivity it provides to work, entertainment, shopping, and friends. There are 206 bones in the human body, and the smart-phone should be considered the 207th bone for Generation Y. They view smart-phones as an appendage to their beings — an indispensable part of their lives, and yet they are concerned about data management and Internet security.

The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners

The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners | Business change | Scoop.it
I promised to curate the next article by Daryl Conner on the four types of burning platforms stories and how they are used in org change work. Well, here it is -- and it is really good.

Any leader, business, or consultant needs to know the particulars in this article. Here is a sneak preview -- the burning platforms stories are NOT really about creating urgency for change.

I appreciate Daryl for clearing up these misconceptions about this story. And don't forget to read his first blog post about the burning platform that I curated below.

This review is written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, December 11, 2012 9:01 PM

Karen Dietz curated this article by Daryl Conner on four types of burning platforms.  A burning platform is a concept leaders use to define the reason for change.  As Daryl points out this may be based on a negative problem  based appeal or a positive, future opportunity.


Which is better?


Research on personal change has reported greater long term success with positive images.    In most serious change projects, we usually use both. 


You cannot and should not hide business challenges from employees.  


However, once they understand the challenge they will then want to hear your reasoning about why they should consider giving more of themselves to the organization.   I would make it good.

How to survive disruption

How to survive disruption | Business change | Scoop.it

Maxwell Wessel is a fellow at the Forum for Growth and Innovation and a senior researcher at Harvard Business School. Clayton M. Christensen is the Kim B Clark Professor of Business Administration at HBS.

Disruptive innovations are like missiles launched at your business. For 20 years we’ve described missile after missile that took aim and annihilated its target: Napster, Amazon and the Apple Store devastated Tower Records and Musicland; digital photography made film practically obsolete.

And all along we’ve prescribed a single response to ensure that when the dust settles, you’ll still have a viable business: develop a disruption of your own before it’s too late to reap the rewards of participation in new, high-growth markets – as Apple did with the iPod, iTunes, the iPad and the iPhone. That prescription is, if anything, even more imperative in an increasingly volatile world.

Understanding the Science of Change

Understanding the Science of Change | Business change | Scoop.it

Change lights up an area of the brain, the prefrontal cortex, which is like RAM memory in a PC. The prefrontal cortex is fast and agile, able to hold multiple threads of logic at once to enable quick calculations. But like RAM, the prefrontal cortex’s capacity is finite—it can deal comfortably with only a handful of concepts before bumping up against limits. That bump generates a palpable sense of discomfort and produces fatigue and even anger. That’s because the prefrontal cortex is tightly linked to the primitive emotional center of the brain, the amygdala, which controls our fight-or-flight response. Kevin Sparks has been trying to get his staff to change the way it monitors and supports the data center ...

Research: 70% of Fortune 500 CEOs Have Absolutely Zero Social Media Presence | 60 Second Marketer | @AskJamieTurner | Business change | Scoop.it
Not long ago, the folks at Domo conducted research with CEO.com to evaluate the extent to which top business leaders are embracing social media.

 

Another study showing the incredible lag of social media use by the general public and CEOs.

 

Interesting that most studies peg CEO use of social media at less than 30 percent, but indicate CEOs believe this is a huge opportunity and predictions indicate that within 2-3 years, we'll see over 50% of CEOs engaged on social media personally.

 

Do you believe this to be true? Do you think CEO personal involvement in social media will ballon within a few years?
