Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 25, 2014 5:15 AM

Here are the basic characteristics of an effective Big Opportunity statement:


  • Short. Written on less than a page, often just a quarter of a page. Short length makes it easier to share with others and to create a sense of urgency among large groups of people.
  • Rational. It makes sense in light of real happenings inside and outside an organization. A good statement concisely addresses issues of what, why, why us, why now, and why bother.
  • Compelling. It is not all head. There is heart in it. And it speaks to the emotions of all relevant audiences — not just to select people and groups, excluding others.
  • Positive. Because it is about an opportunity, it has a positive tone. It is less like a statement about a “burning platform,” which seeks to scare us out of our complacency, and more like a statement of a “burning desire.”
  • Authentic. It feels real. It is not just “good messaging” to motivate the troops. The senior leadership team that puts it together, or at least signs off on it, must genuinely believe in it and feel excited about it.
  • Clear. You can create a statement that is short, rational, emotionally compelling… but still unclear. A great statement makes people rush off in the same direction — not different directions.
  • Aligned. The statement is aligned with any important existing statements of strategy in the group or organization. Or at the least, it is aware of any non-alignment and the stresses and strains that will create, so leaders are prepared for it.

John Michel's curator insight, March 24, 2014 2:30 PM

Change management is no longer a term that denotes only operational improvements, cost efficiencies and process reengineering.    Change management has become a much bigger, more interwoven part of the overall business fabric – an embedded leadership requirement that plays into everything that we do, every day, and how we go about getting things done, regardless of hierarchy or rank.   In the end, every leader must be a change agent.

The Future Of Business: 4 Ways Companies Will Change

The Future Of Business: 4 Ways Companies Will Change | From here and there of little bits & pieces | Scoop.it
We've shifted to a business world where collaboration and connection are replacing hierarchy and bureaucracy. The outdated "alpha" notion of aggressive management has given way to the modern era of cooperative "beta" leadership.We're already seeing this take place as some companies take the lead in thinking about how, by giving up top-down control, they can actually get more work done. Here are some examples of what the future has in store for these beta organizations.

Judo strategy is an offensive marketing strategy suitable for small companies willing to take on larger opponents. It is similar to the martial art of judo where the smaller opponent uses the weight and strength of the larger opponent to its advantage. Judo strategy combines elements of other offensive strategies. The principles of a successful judo strategy are attack weakness with strength, flexibility, and leverage
