Where and When does Big Make Sense?

Where and When does Big Make Sense? | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

"An insider's view of the advance readers' edition of The End of Big: How the Internet Makes David the New Goliath by the super-smart Nicco Mele."

The book releases here in the U.S. on April 23, 2013. 


We are all struggling to figure out which big institutions make sense....And ...which are best torn down.


....While there are many exciting aspects of the end of big, ...there are also threats.   ....The rise of fringe groups such as the Tea Party and WikiLeaks are a result of the end of big because the Web rewards extremist views.

In journalism, if we no longer have big news gathering organizations, who is going to fund the big investigative story?


Without the Washington Post, would Woodward and Bernstein have emerged independently? Without the Watergate Scandal how would history have differed? These are questions worth asking.


The End of Big was not self-published. Nicco talks a lot about micro publishing but went with a big publisher (St. Martin's Press) for his own book.


But at the same time, Nicco is running EchoDitto his own small business and he also has a small publishing operation (his blog).

A thoughtful post, a 2013 book that provokes new perspectives on "right-sizing"economics and culture in an environment with volatile markets. ~  Deb

Why Apple, Academia, Tesla & VCs May Die, Disruption Guru Christensen Talks

Why Apple, Academia, Tesla & VCs May Die, Disruption Guru Christensen Talks | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

"Harvard business professor Clayton Christensen literally wrote the book on technology disruption...and he thinks Apple, Tesla Motors, venture capitalists and most of the nation’s colleges and universities should be afraid."

  

The author of The Innovator’s Dilemma said Wednesday that all of them could be killed by less advanced competitors in the same way that many once dominant technology companies have been in the past.

  

...He believes that and the commoditization of smartphones threaten Apple in the long run.

  

...“For 300 years, higher education was not disruptable because there was no technological core."

  

“But now online learning brings to higher education this technological core, and people who are very complacent are in deep trouble.'

...“there is a different business model that is disrupting this in addition to online learning. It’s on-the-job education. ...you come in for a week and we’ll teach you about strategy and you go off and develop a strategy.  


...You learn it and you use it. These are very different business models and that’s what’s killing us.”

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

I've posted this to BOTH Change Leader Watch & here.  On the Innovations & Institutions stream, I'll be adding examples of organizations that are adapting to this disruption in academe and the other industries mentioned.  ~  Deb

Thanks for your comments Marie. Knowledge Management is quite an industry, with various opinions of the traction it holds in business. I am most curious as to where it is headed.
