Victor Jimenez's curator insight, January 10, 2014 7:58 PM

From the author....

"...successful collaborations rotated control of the project back and forth between [two] partners. This rotating partnership worked better than domineering or consensus-based approaches where a single partner controlled all phases of the collaboration or the partners shared control of every phase"

 

Would this concept simply be able to be mixed in with Agile Development process and rotate leadership through phases of the development lifecycle? Has this been tried before?

 

I'd be interested in hearing stories from teams who have applied this rotating concept. Please feel free to comment here on your story(ies) of this collaboration method.

If You're Hiring A 'Head Of Digital Innovation' You're Doing It Wrong | Techdirt.com

If You're Hiring A 'Head Of Digital Innovation' You're Doing It Wrong | Techdirt.com | Library Innovation | Scoop.it

Way back in 2006, we wrote about how silly it was that all of these old school media companies were suddenly hiring "chief digital officers" or "chief internet officers" -- and how that was a sign that they were in trouble. That's because "digital" or "internet" is not a separate silo. Companies that are going to succeed today on the internet need to get to the point where the internet simply infuses everything they do -- such that they don't even need to be thinking about it as a "separate thing." It's just part of what they do. Many of the companies who went down that route discovered that pretty quickly. Those top "digital" people often had no real power or no real authority, and with the companies hiring them, it made others believe that they didn't need to be thinking about the internet, because "someone else has got it covered."

I'm kind of surprised that any company is still thinking that way, but apparently Bloomberg has just hired a former GE exec to be its "head of global digital innovation." Bloomberg has been, somewhat notoriously, going through some turmoil lately in its news division, and setting up a separate silo to focus on "digital" seems like the exact wrong strategy, yet again. The company either is digital or it's not... and having to hire someone to focus on digital innovation suggests... it's not.

B2C - Get your digital marketing and customer feedback game on


B2B - "Physical components of a supply chain, such as trucks, pallets, warehouses, even individual packages, are being digitally-enabled with sensors and actuators that allow data and analysis for on-the-spot action. Companies that capture and integrate that information gain the ability to dynamically manage costs for serving even the smallest segments of their markets and the flexibility to determine the best inventory allotments based on supply and demand predictions. Using real-time data, these companies also can find the best transport methods by weighing predicted customer service outcomes against the impact on their carbon footprint."
