"Under New Management Podcasts
Under New Management is an innovative initiative within our Division to translate current, rigorous empirical research findings into practical management guidelines. Each podcast produced is an audio interview with the lead author of an OB study recently published or in-press in one of our area's top journals. The interviews typically last 8-15 minutes and consist of four parts: Introduction of concepts of the study Brief explanation of methods Explanation of findings Practical implications for managers

Identity, persona, essence and promise, are the new kings and queens of the branding kingdom, thanks to technology and the deeper connections it opens up between brands and consumers.
Markets, consumer behavior and how businesses connect with customers are all directly impacted by technology.
The increasingly important role of technology, combined with global economic unrest, means a company’s brand is more important today than it has ever been. Consumers, in search of certainty, rely heavily on a brand’s symbolism and significance.
Brands that fail to instill this level of confidence in consumers run the risk of falling to digital Darwinism.
The brands that survive this era of economic disruption, will be the ones that are best able to evolve because they recognize the need and opportunity to do so, before their competitors .
Everything begins with embracing a culture of innovation and adaptation — a culture that recognizes the impact of disruptive technology and how consumer preference and affinity is evolving.

Curriculum -- Across education, the very notion of curriculum is changing in a number of ways. We are seeing a shift to newer literacies and are even beginning to entertain significant changes to what core content needs to be taught/learned.
With the amount of information that is available on the internet, it's important for teachers to filter through websites to find relevant information in a timely manner. As a blogger, I believe we "curate" the web automatically to help keep things organized and to convey information in as detailed and easy a way as possible.
Now, with the addition of dedicated websites, people can curate the web and save information on their own while sharing this vital information with others.

This is an excerpt from the article by Steve Rosenbaum and published by Huffington Post.
"The idea of SXSW as a metaphor for the growth and overwhelming abundance of the web is more than apt. No matter how you cut it, the volume of panels, talks, conversations, parties, gatherings, bands, and food trucks is hard to manage.
Digital abundance, in the absence of a powerful set of blinders, can be as frustrating as it is fulfilling. And SXSW has the same puzzle. The solution to Digital Overload at SXSW isn't to shut down the potpourri of choice any more than the solution to solving the signal to noise problem on the web is to legislate less tweeting or Facebook friending.
The solution is better tools, and more empowered humans. The solution to Digital Overload both in Austin and online is curation. Curators are the new superheros of the web. And at SXSW, I'd sure have benefited from a few folks who's been willing to curate the content, and share their selections and schedules.
In the absence of a curatorial choice to navigate the massive offering, people default to poor planning and then a 'follow the crowd' behavior into the presentations and panels with the biggest known names. While popularity is certainly one way to find content, often the most interesting and relevant material for you isn't the panel in the biggest room, or the presenter with the biggest name.
Be a curator, or find one. Next year at SXSW, Steve is going to curate and publish his digital content roadmap."
Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to let your scoop.it content to reach more people and to get discovered by those who are not yet aware of you, the new Pinterest integration in Scoop.it should certainly be a welcome addition.
With this new addition, not only you can share your curated stories inside your Scoop.it newsradar with your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Tumblr and Wordpress friends, but you can also "pin" selected ones to create alternative "collections" on Pinterest.
One potentially good approach is the one of leveraging Pinterest to do what Scoop.it is not (yet) so good at. For example, after you have been curating a newsradar for a while, you can easily create "greatest hits" collections out of the best ones, or sub-thematic digests on specific topics, and Pinterest is a perfect tool to do that.
In essence you can "re-curate" your own curated news, in alternative ways which take advantage of Pinterest strength in building "visual collections" rather than news channels.
N.B.: To access the new "Pin it" button on Scoop.it, click the sharing button below any scoop and you will find it there next to the G+ one.
