Innovation, Complexity and Social Business – Part 2 | Social Enterprise Today

Innovation, Complexity and Social Business – Part 2 | Social Enterprise Today | Social Business and Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

A striking change of focus in the social business arena occurred during the last five years. Despite the fact that Andrew McAfee’s original definition specified its scope as «within companies, or between companies and their partners or customers», infant Enterprise 2.0 was mainly concerned by internal collaboration. The teaser from one of the major events of this early period, the Boston 2007 Enterprise 2.0 Conference, talked about “(…) the technologies and business practices that liberate the workforce from the constraints of legacy communication and productivity tools like email“.

When an Enterprise Social Network Gives More Tricks than Treats

When an Enterprise Social Network Gives More Tricks than Treats | Social Business and Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
It’s that time of year when employees come to work dressed up in Halloween costumes of all types. On October 31, you’ll inevitably see zombie bosses, animals galore and a myriad of other getups meant to bring a bit of adult fun to a favorite childhood holiday. But what if I told you that I knew the secret to changing your workplace identity the other 364 days of the year? What if I told you that I can help you create a costume so convincing that, even without doing much work, you wi Topic: Social Business.

...communications is no longer a role for one department but for all the company.

Why is this important? Because it is often Internal Comms that has been the department that has introduced intranets to their employees as a communication tool for all the company. They have made sure intranets looked good, that people got training and that the corporate news got the best real estate on the homepage. 

Most of them have realized that the intranet is no longer only a communication tool, but a tool to do your work. In that respect, it may be time to hand over the ownership of the intranet to a different part of the organization, and the digital workplace team may be the best candidate. They can take care of a proper technical installation, governance, training, app selection and development, usability etc. (which, incidentally, apart from the technical installation, are all things I really like to do

The network of global corporate control

The structure of the control network of transnational corporations affects global market competition and financial stability. So far, only small national samples were studied and there was no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic "super-entity" that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers.

Go ahead. Give your employees yet another state-of-the art, fresh off the cloud (or out-of-the-box) solution for collaboration and communication. Odds are few of them will use it anyway … unless you do two not-so-shocking things. Can you guess what they are?

Come portare lo smart working in ufficio vincendo le resistenze

Come portare lo smart working in ufficio vincendo le resistenze | Social Business and Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
Numerose sono le aziende che in Italia stanno avviando progetti di Smart Working. Stanno ridisegnando il layout degli spazi di lavoro, adottando nuove tecnologie a supporto di una comunicazione e collaborazione più efficace e allineando le policy organizzative con quelle che sono le nuove esigenze di business e di work-life balance delle persone.  

Spesso però, le iniziative di Smart Working faticano a superare una fase iniziale di sperimentazione scontrandosi con le resistenze e le paure di perdita di controllo da parte dei manager. L’Osservatorio Smart Working ha sviluppato una metodologia di change management basata su un modello di maturità degli stili manageriali che consente ai manager di confrontarsi con 4 principi di leadership ispirati allo Smart Working e definire in modo condiviso le nuove leadership practice per abilitare il cambiamento.

The connected employee : chosen of suffered moments ?

The connected employee : chosen of suffered moments ? | Social Business and Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
New ways fo working made possible by the internet, most of all because it allows to get rid of time and location constraints, raise many questions for businesses. These questions are about two main areas.

First, human relationships. Will we stop having face-to-face meetings ? Will virtual meetings replace all physical interactions ? And, if yes, for the better or the worse ?

Second, work-life balance and the blurring frontier between life and work. At the beginning we used to talk about balance, now it’s about integration. There’s no frontier anymore but we must still learn to make both cohabit all day long.

[1306.3422] Spontaneous centralization of control in a network of company ownerships

In a recent work it has been shown that the empirical global network of corporate control is marked by a central, tightly connected "core" made of a small number of large companies which control a significant part of the global economy. Here we show how a simple, adaptive "rich get richer" dynamics can account for this characteristic, which incorporates the increased buying power of more influential companies, and in turn results in even higher control. We conclude that this kind of centralized structure can emerge without it being an explicit goal of these companies, or as a result of a well-organized strategy.

Up to 87.7 percent of America’s workforce is not able to contribute to their full potential because they don’t have passion for their work. Less than 12.3 percent of America’s workforce possesses the attributes of worker passion. This “passion gap” is important because passionate workers are committed to continually achieving higher levels of performance.
