Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 31, 12:00 PM

Here's some handy new research reported in Harvard Business Review that points out how important social skills are to your personal bottom line. And storytelling skills are front and center because it's your highest leverage point in building relationships, rapport, trust, credibility, believability, and meaningful interactions. 


Storytelling builds skills in deep listening, improvisation, design, focus, empathy, influence, impact, and the like. It's a gateway to creativity, innovation, and flow states that generate higher productivity and greater well-being.


What I like about the report is that the research documents how much social skills will affect your ability to generate more income. This income generation is not about transactional storytelling (tell me a story and I'll buy your product), but about relational storytelling (sharing stories for connection and the ability to get work done through people).


I'm chalking this research up to another example of storytelling ROI. This is a good read which I'm sure you'll enjoy. Now get working on your storytelling skills!

Yet another reason why technology is a problem but of course we can't even imagine life without it. I too believe that social skills are becoming way more important than they used to be. I just started my first retail job and it completely changed the way I talked to people for the better. Now I have more job opportunities!

Gartner on Medical 3D Printing - 3D Printing Industry

Gartner on Medical 3D Printing - 3D Printing Industry | iNNOV8 | Scoop.it
Market research firm Gartner has laid out its thoughts on the future of 3D printed medical devices and bioprinting with the 2015 Hype Cycle on 3D Printing.

Richard Platt's curator insight, August 29, 1:30 PM

Gartner is widely regarded for its ability to analyze technological trends, relying heavily on their now famous Hype Cycle.  And the market research firm doesn’t just get into the technology, but the society surrounding it, even predicting that there would be widespread social upheaval in one report.  More recently, the firm created a specialized model for outlining specific trends in 3D printing, with the 2015 Hype Cycle for 3D Printing outlining various applications within the industry and their point of maturity versus popular expectations.  And, with this tool, they have determined that medical 3D printing has just hit the Peak of Inflated Expectations, meaning that, soon, we’ll no longer be wowed by 3D printing in the medical space, as the tech is legitimately incorporated regularly in specialist medical applications.    Bioprinting for transplantable organs is listed as a separate category, that is also listed as 5-10 years from maturity, but is further from pure hype inflation.  Michael Shanler, research director at Gartner, says of this specific application, “Some of these R&D systems are already capable of printing cells, proteins, DNA and drugs, however there are significant barriers to mainstream adoption.” He adds, “The sheer complexity of the items to be printed and the high maintenance requirements of these systems mean that initial deployments will be mostly limited to specialist service providers. We see mainstream adoption increasing as the systems become more diverse in their functions.”  3D Bioprinting Solutions may believe they can 3D print an organ in 1-2 years, but, even if they do, there won’t be a top 10 list of organ printers for another 5-10.   Outside of medicine, however, Gartner believes that there are a number of spaces in which the technology is only two to five years from becoming mature that will, in turn, see 3D printing move from specialty uses to broader usage. These include 3D scanning, service bureaus, and 3D printing software, says Basiliere.  With CAD software being made simpler for consumer use, coupled with repositories of 3D printables, consumers have greater access to 3D models.  3D scanners, too, give consumers a wider range of printable options, as they drop dramatically in price.  And, because they can use service bureaus to have this objects printed, rather than on a home machine, they can experiment with the technology more and more.  Basiliere explains, “Advancements outside of the actual printers themselves may prove to be the catalyst that brings about widespread adoption. Technologies such as 3D scanning, 3D print creation software and 3D printing service bureaus are all maturing quickly, and all — in their own way — have the potential to make high quality 3DP more accessible and affordable.”

Jake D'Imperio gis's curator insight, August 30, 2:28 AM

This article explains the predicted prevalence of 3-D printing in the medical field. This will make surgery with bones easier and less expensive and will save and improve the lives of many.  This is exciting news as the normal cost of hip replacement is thousands of dollars and the cost will be significantly reduced.

Listening to all the talk about innovation makes me feel like Hamlet listening to his mother insist, “The Lady doth protest too much.” Numerous products promise to deliver it, unalike companies claim to embody it and competing politicians guarantee to take us to it. We have a ubiquity of expressions, but an uncertainty over meanings.
