How Strategic Is Your Board?

How Strategic Is Your Board? | Career Advancement | Scoop.it
In a world where business models are evolving rapidly and new competitors can emerge almost overnight, strategic thinking — especially at the top of the company — is more important than ever to a company’s survival. Unfortunately, boards of directors have no clear model to follow when it comes to developing the strategic role that is best suited to the company they oversee. At one extreme, the board does little more than rubber-stamp the CEO’s decisions, while at the other, the board constantly second-guesses the executive team. Neither extreme adds value.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Many corporate boards lack clarity about their role in strategy. A structured assessment of the board’s strategic responsibilities — and how these should evolve if the company’s competitive context shifts — can change that.

Social Media is Now a Paid Marketing Platform. And That’s Great.

Social Media is Now a Paid Marketing Platform. And That’s Great. | Career Advancement | Scoop.it
In 2012, an industry observer covering Facebook’s upcoming IPO wrote this about the company’s future: “Facebook needs to make money for their shareholders to make money… [So] how is Facebook going to make money? They have begun testing a feature where certain posts can get highlighted for a fee.”

That statement captured the expectation of most Facebook investors—the company had done a brilliant job of building a massive user base and now it was going to somehow cash in by charging advertisers to reach its audience.


Today, it’s clear that this assumption was correct and that Facebook’s execution of the strategy has succeeded spectacularly. In the second quarter of 2014, the company posted revenue of $2.9 billion—most of it coming from those “highlighted” (promoted) posts it had been testing two years ago.

Of course, for the shift to work, Facebook needed to make sure paid posts were more effective than organic posts. After all, if marketers could reach users by attracting Likes to their Pages and then messaging their fans directly, they would never need to pay Facebook to advertise.

Why Taking A Vacation Can Make You Better At Your Job

Why Taking A Vacation Can Make You Better At Your Job | Career Advancement | Scoop.it

A 2014 Oxford Economics Assessment of Paid Time Off in the U.S. showed 42% of employees with paid time off finished the year with unused days, leaving an average of 8.1 days unused.

Small business owners are especially bad at taking time away. According to the 2013 Sage Reinvention of Small Business Study, 43% of small business owners are taking less vacation time than five years ago.

 

The fact that we don't use all of our vacation time isn’t all that surprising. After all, getting away for a few days or weeks can be overwhelming when it feels like stepping away from the office will create a painful backlog of work when you return.

 

But what if stepping away from the daily grind made you better at your job?

This is a good one! Nothing like a vacation, a week away from work, with your family or your co-workers. What matters is the change, change of atmosphere, the adventure activities, the star-studded sky above you, and the fresh air you breathe, enough to recharge your batteries, and yes inspire you with new ideas and thoughts!
