Dynamic Curation: What Brands Can Learn From An Emmy Award Winner

Dynamic Curation: What Brands Can Learn From An Emmy Award Winner | Knowledge Broker | Scoop.it

This piece was published by Andy Jankowski for Enterprise Strategies.

The author has skillfully woven together a piece along with some videos using the strategy PBS Documentary Emmy award winner, Ken Burns.

 

"Corporate communicators are the Ken Burns of their organization’s content, helping move the story along through context and rhythm."

 

Here are 4 great tips with some wonderful takeaways:

 

Storyboard first

 

**Before you go digging for information, think about the message you want to convey

 

**What is the point of your communication? Who is your audience?

 

**Create a storyboard around this message.

 

Filter Intelligently

 

**Could I make this information richer or better by using information outside of my organization?”

 

**“Do infographics and video exist that would help my people learn this concept better?”

 

Don't Become Part of the Problem

 

**Identify good stuff

 

**Put it in the right collection

 

**Document it

 

Know When to Create and When to Curate

 

**Creation and curation should coexist. Curation is not in competition with creation.

 

**Instead, it is a form of creation.

 

**The creation process of a corporate communicator or internal journalist creating content is still happening

Hi Karen.
Wow! Scoop.it score of 91! I have my students starting their 10-week scoop.it project this week. If you you have a few sentences of advice, I would be glad to pass it on to them.
Best wishes.

Karen Dietz's comment, March 27, 2012 9:58 AM
Hi Ken! Yep, pretty proud of that score :) Here's my advice -- write reviews and add tags. Both are invaluable and make the distinction between an 'aggregator' of information and a curator who carefully selects, reviews, comments, and catalogs the articles to create a meaningful context for readers. Sounds like a fun class! Looking forward to hearing more about it.

Elevate communication between your colleagues

Elevate communication between your colleagues | Knowledge Broker | Scoop.it

 

The reality is that most leaders, managers, and employees within most organizations simply don’t communicate with one another very well. Communication is imperative for sound business operations, regardless of whether those conversations happen in person, by phone, through email, or from afar via virtual teams. And the need is not necessarily for more communication, but more effective communication.

Creativity with a small c

Creativity with a small c | Knowledge Broker | Scoop.it

 

Schumpeter's vision of the lone entrepreneur is so entrenched in our minds that we unconsciously tend to believe that entrepreneurial flair is a matter of genetics.

 

Many of the traits we assume to be genetically determined are in fact the product of one's environment. A famous study on identical twins aged between 15 and 22 found that while 80% of IQ differences were attributable to genetics, only around 30% of the performance on creativity tests could be explained that way.

The word "innovate" can be traced all the way back to 1440. It comes from the Middle French word "innovacyon," meaning "renewal" or "new way of doing things.


Exactly what innovations actually happened in 1440 (rounder oxcart wheels?) is anybody's guess, but whatever they were, it's likely they improved the quality of life for more than a few people.


These days, the "innovation thing" is something of a no-brainer. Every company worth its low-salt lunch has identified innovation as a core competency needing to be developed.
