100 Websites You Should Know and Use (updated!) | TED Blog

100 Websites You Should Know and Use (updated!) | TED Blog | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

posted by Jessica Gross

 

"In the spring of 2007, Julius Wiedemann, editor in charge at Taschen GmbH, gave a legendary TED University talk: an ultra-fast-moving ride through the “100 websites you should know and use.” Six years later, it remains one of the most viewed TED blog posts ever. Time for an update? We think so. Below, the 2013 edition of the 100 websites to put on your radar and in your browser.

 

"To see the original list, click here. While most of these sites are still going strong and remain wonderful resources, we’ve crossed out any that are no longer functioning. And because there are so many amazing resources out there, please add your own ideas in the comments. Happy surfing!"

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"Failure to see and appreciate the interdependence or interaction among key factors -- strategy, structure, incentives, controls, coordination, culture, change, etc. -- is a costly mistake that detracts from strategy execution success. "

Knowmad Society

Knowmad Society | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
Knowmad Society explores the future of learning, work, and how we relate with each other in a world driven by accelerating change, value networks, and the rise of knowmads.

Via TD, Lynnette Van Dyke
Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"In other words, knowmads are extensions of Drucker’s (1992) knowledge workers concept, embracing the convergence of accelerating technological change and globalization."

 

"Knowmads are valued for the personal knowledge that they possess, and this knowledge gives them a competitive advantage. Knowmads are responsible for designing their own futures. This represents a massive shift from agricultural, industrial, and information-based work in which our relationships and responsibilities were clearly defined by others."

Building a Culture to Embrace Millennials

Building a Culture to Embrace Millennials | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
Adopting a Millennial Culture The more statistics, the more it all just blends together. Maybe it is just me. When looking at the numbers above, they just don’t matter. Remove the the statistics, and the narrative is vital to a vibrant organizational culture. Career progression Personal development and training Work abroad Receive feedback in real time A comfortable and inspiring environment Collaboration with clarity of purpose and goals What these elements mean for an organizational culture include: Clear career plans and rotations to develop the next generation of leaders (including a global perspective, if possible) Solid training and development offerings to include a professional and personal focus and betterment Timely feedback where frequency and meaning are essential; annual reviews become just a milestone New workspaces to enable interaction and familiarity, meaning ease to work together (around a “kitchen” table or an individual space, for example) Clarity in purpose and goals to empower collaboration and inspire the work to be done The reality: this is a culture most generations want. The difference is it can no longer just be words on a wall. This is the culture the next generation of leaders will demand and put in place as leaders. It is a culture of words-in-action. It is a culture we need to be building now.
