The emerging workplace is both a space and a place. We no longer need to be side-by-side, but it does not preclude this from happening. Too often, people use digital technology to send a message when they could walk down the hall.

What CEOs Have Learned About Social Media

What CEOs Have Learned About Social Media | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
Research has shown that executives with social CEOs say their CEOs’ social media presence makes them feel inspired (52%), technologically advanced (46%), and proud (41%). Sociability shows that a leader is listening, open to engaging in two-way dialogue with stakeholders, and comfortable with change. And in today’s battle for talent, social CEOs also help to attract and retain employees.

The Plain-Vanilla Accountant Goes Out of Style

The Plain-Vanilla Accountant Goes Out of Style | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
Tighter regulation, automation and an increasingly complex business landscape require even entry-level accountants to possess a wider range of technical and communications skills.

More CFOs say they want people who have initiative and can do things like analyze data and present their findings coherently to colleagues. But demand is outpacing supply. The U.S. unemployment rate for accountants and auditors was 2.9% in the first quarter. That compares with an overall jobless rate of 5.4% in April.

Leadership, forecasting, strategic thinking, cost management and financial reporting are the skills where the gaps between demand and supply are the widest, according to a survey of 173 finance and human resources hiring managers.
Tom Hood's insight:

"Hard is soft and soft is hard" - Tom Peters


The talent war is heating up and soft or 'success' skills are showing up as the differentiator. It is what we have been working in for the past fifteen years with our Business Learning Institute.

Too Many Infrastructure Projects Go It Alone

Too Many Infrastructure Projects Go It Alone | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
There is one best way to get big projects done. It has nothing to do with the technical side, and everything to do with people and relationships. Systemic problems that affect everyone but are beyond the ability of any one person to solve require collaboration skills. To renew and reinvent our aging transportation infrastructure, we must turn our attention to coalition-building. Classic leadership lessons apply.

To create the conditions that support innovation, leaders need to build connections across companies, industries, and sectors.

Via David Hain
Tom Hood's insight:

Collaboration - Vision - Communication .."it is not enough to convene people only once to ask for their support, nor can leaders assume that just because something has been said, it has been heard and agreed to. Frequent communication and reminders of the vision keep coalition members engaged throughout often-arduous processes with numerous ups and downs. When projects accomplish many things at once (like the Miami tunnel did), coalition-building is easier."

Digital Badges: A More Viable Currency for Returning Adult Students? | Kyle Peck

Digital Badges: A More Viable Currency for Returning Adult Students? | Kyle Peck | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it
Higher education is based largely on the assumption that students want degrees, and therefore they want the courses that are required to earn those degrees. And that assumption has been valid. Degrees have been a “ticket” that offered the possibility of admission to a desirable career (if it wasn’t sold out). But as more and more people sought and received degrees, the increasing number of tickets available decreased the probability that the ticket would guarantee admission. And, as more and more institutions were printing tickets based on their own criteria, it became more and more difficult for the gatekeepers to know which ticketholders should be admitted. Many of the applicants already possess what appears to be a valid ticket, and the tickets carry very little information: Name of institution/Name of degree. That’s it. In the next few years, I predict we’ll see more and more adult students interested in accumulating digital badges, as opposed to wanting course credits or degrees. Digital badges are more modular, they do a much better job of describing what the badge holder can do, and they can be assembled in ways that highlight how an individual stands out from the crowd. They can illustrate how he or she has the core qualifications required for consideration, and also has a series of related skills, perspectives, and attributes that add up to competitive advantage. And the quality of each badge can be interrogated with a single click of the mouse.

Tom Hood's insight:
Another example of the 'shift change' happening as McCormick works on leadership, learning, and the workplace (no doubt technology and generations are involved as well). "It's about consolidating the administrative buildings in Hunt Valley," said Jim Lynn, a company spokesman. "We're in the early stages of a long-term, multiyear project ... to develop a more effective workplace. Our primary objectives are to increase employee collaboration, engagement and efficiency in a more open and centralized location." And note the emphasis on collaboration, the number 1 skill needed according to IBM's global CEO study.

Or is it fuel learning through collaboration?

 

Both! ,


Insightful post from Michelle Humes writing for HBR.


 "The key to successful collaboration for an innovative team is really “learning” – learning from feedback, from one another, from experiments, from mistakes. Learning in this context refers to learning that is embedded in the workplace and integrated with daily work."


We use lots of structured collaboration in our learning and believe collaboration and facilitation skills are critical in today's rapidly changing world. We use structured collaboration in our strategic planning work, leadership development and many of our learning programs. We also deploy several technologies like conferences.io and ThinkTank by Group Systems to give us stronger engagement for remote and virtual work.

Tom Hood's insight:

Love the quote, today's leaders must be more "miners" than oracles - well said! This is why IBM's Global CEO study identified collaboration as the #1 skill needed in today's changing and complex world.

 

Also why we have integrated facilitation into our leadership development programs using our i2a: Insiights to Action Strategic Thinking System and implementing collaborative technology to make "crowd-sourcing" more efficient. 

 

Several recent projects are using these skills - Sage Vision to Strategy workshops and our recent facilitation of the Maryland Chamber of Commerce's Maryland Competitiveness Coalition using ThinkTank.

A taste for innovation

Cross-functional, self-governing employee boards help global spice company McCormick & Co. identify business process improvements and other innovations.
Tom Hood's insight:

Innovation is fundamentally about two things - collaboration & learning. The story of McCormick's "multiple management" is a great example of systemitizing innoavtion, collaboration and learning. It is also significant in that it features a CPA.CGMA, Ken Kelly who has been innoavtive in the financial and accounting community throughout his career (with MACPA and FEI to name two).

 

The key insight for me is that this was actually started back during the Great Depression, to me, that is innovation!

Excerpt from article: 


Connecting unexpected people, places, objects, and ideas provides a huge boost to your imagination. You can practice this skill by using provocative metaphors, interacting with those outside your normal circles, building on existing ideas, and finding inspiration in unlikely places. These approaches enhance creative thinking and are terrific tools for generating fresh ideas.

The End of Competitive Advantage

The End of Competitive Advantage | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

Virtually all strategy frameworks and tools in use today are based on a single dominant idea: that the purpose of strategy is to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. This idea is strategy’s most fundamental concept. It’s every company’s holy grail. And it’s no longer relevant for more and more companies...

The way she recommends dealing with it to become systematic about innovation and she offers a "playbook" framework. I agree with Christopher's caution about not changing for change's sake. That said, you do need to think agile in today;s constantly changing environment. Thanks!

Brilliant insights. Need to read this before reviewing/creating your organizational strategy

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, July 2, 2013 10:48 AM

Steve Denning discusses this intriguing new book called 'The End of Competitive Advantage'. According to the author Rita Gunther McGrath, all our current ideas about strategy and competitive advantage are based on the 'old economy'. The 'Creative Economy', however, requires a different strategy approach.


For example, "one of the biggest changes is “to stop thinking of within-industry competition as the most significant competitive threat. (..) Today, competition can come from anywhere. Now entire product lines—whole markets—could be destroyed almost overnight as customers defect in droves by “big bang disruption."

Thought for the Week - 04/28/13 | Thinking 'I' or 'We'?

Thought for the Week - 04/28/13 | Thinking 'I' or 'We'? | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say ‘I'. And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say ‘I'. They don't think ‘I'. They think ‘we'; they think ‘team'. 

They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but ‘we' gets the credit.... This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.

Welcome to the Collaboration Economy? Great article shared by Don Dea in the Digital Now Community and one I believe is on point!

 

Collaboration was identified as the #1 skill CEOs are looking for in the IBM Global CEO study and another article proclaimed 2014 as the year of collaborative advantage replacing competitive advantage (Business guru, Rita McGrath would agree and add it is the age of transient advantages, which needs constant customer and team collaboration to co-create the next advantages for your business). 

 

Clearly the #1 driver is the size, speed and scope of technology driven change, combined with the demographics changes and the "shift change" happening in the business landscape.

How Drucker Thought About Complexity

How Drucker Thought About Complexity | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

In the forces driving our age of discontinuity, he saw the need for management to change.

Tom Hood's insight:

John Hagel (@jhagel) on Complexity... and Drucker would have loved our L>C

 

"The pace of change is accelerating and the degree of uncertainty increasing. Perhaps a new rationale will be required to drive institutional success in the future. Perhaps we need to move from a rationale of scalable efficiency to one of scalable learning — designing institutions and architectures of relationships across institutions that help all participants to learn faster as more participants join."


And he finished with foure themes for dealing with this turbulence:


1) The importance of lifelong learning in a rapidly evolving information society (Drucker understood L>C)


2) The need to decentralize organizations around employees — viewing them as assets capable of expanding growth rather than as fixed costs to be eliminated — and to move away from standardized and tightly-specified process flows


3) The need for institutions to focus on building capability around core strengths — one of the reasons he was an early proponent of outsourcing as a way to simplify operations and to focus management on what really matters


4) The importance of focusing on the dynamics of evolving economic and social processes rather than on static equilibrium models.
