3 Signs Members of Your Team Do Not Know How to Collaborate from @TedCoine

3 Signs Members of Your Team Do Not Know How to Collaborate from @TedCoine | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Very interesting article on collaboration from my friend Ted Coiné through the eyes of an anonymous contributor. I can just imagine why this person stays anonymous when discoursing on such an important topic for organizations' success. Why did I like the article? It clearly looks good to talk about collaboration particularly when you are a manager. You look good but how do you foster collaboration if any. For me this is an integrity issue for all leaders. If you behave consistently you build trust. If you keep surprising people perhaps you are not. What does that do? Just a minute there are too many skeletons in the closet...

Social Network Analysis: Making Invisible Work Visible

Social Network Analysis: Making Invisible Work Visible | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

While companies know that social networks are important, most managers don’t understand how these networks really work. These social networks don’t appear on any formal organisation charts, yet can significantly affect performance and innovation. The problems is, how can leaders manage what they can’t see?

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.

 

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.

 

As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.

 

Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.

 

Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.

 

In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand.

 

*** If you would like help setting up a Scoop.it traffic generator for your company. Contact Brian at 1-888-535-9139 or Email Me ideas@marketinghits.com ***

luiy's curator insight, January 17, 2014 9:29 AM

My own clan — the economists — is particularly inclined in this direction. There are a thousand economists working on partial equilibrium problems for every one working on a general equilibrium problem. This is despite the fact that no one would contest that general equilibrium clarity is the most valuable knowledge by far. Why? Because it is really difficult to specify any general equilibrium cause-and-effect relationships.

 

Instead, most of the guns deployed in modern knowledge advancement are aimed at narrow problems for which the cause-and-effect relationship is specified with the famous “all other things being equal” proviso. Each narrow knowledge domain develops analytical tool-sets that deepen the narrow knowledge domain. Each narrow domain develops ever more algorithmic knowledge, and those developing the knowledge are extremely confident that they are right because they are so specialized within their own domain. The liver expert is completely confident that he or she is correct even if it is the interaction with another condition that threatens your health most.

This approach has created another kind of complexity: inter-domain complexity. Every field is segmented into multiple domains, each with deep algorithmic knowledge, specialized tools, and experts in the domain who think they are absolutely right. And they are indeed right, as long as we ignore the reality of detail complexity.

According to a new study in Advances in Strategic Management from Jason Davis at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, companies can synchronize their product development work in three ways:


1. By deliberately collaborating with partners;
2. By reacting to signals from other companies; and
3. By combining these two strategies into a hybrid approach.

Should we share the ideas we don’t fund so they could benefit from the collective intelligence? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

"In other words: Let’s say someone submits an idea to Pioneer and it’s not a good fit for us, for whatever reason. What if that idea were posted on our website, where a community of researchers, practitioners and the other highly creative and intelligent members of our network could view it? What if someone connected the dots between an applicant’s idea and another project underway somewhere – and what if that yielded a partnership that helped bring the idea to fruition? What if someone had feedback or a question about the idea that helped the applicant sharpen the project’s focus, or see its potential in a new light?

 

Of course, there would be challenges, and plenty of questions to answer before we could proceed in such manner. I explored some of these questions with Drs. Kevin Volpp and David Asch, co-directors of the Foundation’s Behavioral Economics Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania, in the first episode of the Pioneering Ideas podcast (listen here at 4:35)."
