Marty Koenig's curator insight, April 8, 11:48 AM

Change management best practices and principles in an organization is often ignored.


Yes, technology changes are typically managed well, but the human side of change leaves a ton of opportunity and money on the table at any size company. 


This article takes me back to my graduate degree program in management where we used tools to find the hidden influencers. 


Anyone at Director level and above should read this article, and review it during any change that affects people and the way the do things at the company.

Strategic Storytelling | Business Truisms

Strategic Storytelling | Business Truisms | FOOD SECURITY - Innovative Agriculture | Scoop.it
Every so often, a traditionally non-business word finds its way into the business world, fueled by an admirable desire to find new ways to think about old challenges. “Storytelling” has become one of those words.

 

What a nicely written article pointing to several truisms in business storytelling. Some you are familiar with (storytelling is a pull, not a push technology). I like the ones that I don't read much about:
1. Storytelling is a selfless, empowering act
2. Storytelling looks to the future

 

As the author Bill Baker (from Marketing Profs) says, "Successful storytelling respects the past and appreciates the present, but it also looks boldly into the future, moving people past “what is” to “what if?” Done well, storytelling helps people collectively imagine a vision of the future that is achievable and worth achieving, helping them to understand not only what they’re working on but also what they’re working toward." Yes!

 

And, "As you consider using storytelling strategically to give meaning to your brand communications or employee-engagement efforts, don’t do so simply because it is “the next big thing.” Do it because, if you truly listen and you are willing to be generous, authentic, emotional, and collectively creative— it works. As one senior client recently said, “This is a bit frightening. I feel vulnerable; but at the same time, because I’m being myself, I feel more confident.” If your organization is ready for that journey, there’s a great story ahead."

 

Love it. This is a quick post that is rich in insights & examples (ignore its clunky layout). Enjoy!

Reflection for Learning

Reflection for Learning | FOOD SECURITY - Innovative Agriculture | Scoop.it

Why Reflect?

 

"It is the language of reflection that deepens our knowledge of who we are in relation to others in a community of learners" (Carole Miller and Juliana Saxton, University of Victoria).

 

What are the pedagogical and physiological foundations of reflection for learning? Why is reflection important for learning? What does the literature say about how reflection supports learning?

Most of the poor communities cut trees for meagre economic activities: for charcoal used as source of energy and income, cut down the few remaining trees to cultivate the land for some food. Poor farming methods and lack of other source of income other than from selling charcoal impacts negatively on the environment.
Sam Sani Nzevela's comment, December 14, 2012 3:40 AM
Lack of proper leadership at the community level is also another source of poverty. Good leaders should be able to help the community to manage the resources and create meaningful wealth. If we engage the community to plant trees then we must provide alternative energy and other meaningful economic activities to support live. Leaders must be able to form effective community teams - like saccos to initiate and take ownership of economic processes/activities, attract funding and apply proper implementation, management, monitoring and evaluation of community projects

DROID DNA, HTC... review | FOOD SECURITY - Innovative Agriculture | Scoop.it

"HTC has gone all out with the DROID DNA, and it pays dividends: the new Verizon exclusive breaks records with its 1080p display, putting HTC back into the limelight with a legitimate flagship. A Full HD screen, 4G LTE, and a quadcore S4 Pro chipset tick the spec boxes more comprehensively than we’ve ever seen before, though big displays and fast processors do make us worry when the battery is non-removable. Has HTC redeemed itself with the best Android phone on the market, or are the DROID DNA’s ambitions simply ahead of their time?"

With Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, Windows Phone 7.8 and more the overall look and feel hasn’t changed dramatically, but this is an all new and more personal mobile OS."
