University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting

University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting | How to set up a Consulting Services Business | Scoop.it
Around the world, participation rates in tertiary education are on the rise and one of the key challenges facing educators is finding ways to engage these students. We present the results of a project that assesses the impact of an engagement strategy in which a cohort of students entering their first year of university (1) establish and maintain a clear goal of their ideal future career and (2) make use of a web-based digital curation tool to research and present their findings.

The Power of Routines

Capabilities and competencies, we argued, don’t live in isolation (as they do on paper). Rather, they tend to show up together in key routines that differentiate the highest performing employees from average performing ones.  Trying to target individual competencies and discrete organizational capabilities, while novel and very clean on paper, bares little relationship to the world of work.

Why agility pays

Why agility pays | How to set up a Consulting Services Business | Scoop.it
No one would expect sluggish companies to thrive. It’s equally reasonable to assume that success achieved through breakneck speed, without stabilizing processes and structures underfoot, will be hard to sustain over the long term. Yet some executives might not only reasonably maintain that speed and stability pull in opposite directions but also hypothesize that they may be negatively correlated. Our latest research, however, confirms that the opposite is true.
