Scientists generate 281-gigapixel cell map using electron microscope

Scientists generate 281-gigapixel cell map using electron microscope | @liminno | Scoop.it

Electron microscopes can produce incredibly detailed and even 3D views of sub-cellular structures, but often at the cost of losing the bigger picture. Researchers at Leiden University in the Netherlands, however, have leveraged a technique called virtual nanoscopy that enables researchers to observe the whole of a cell and its intricate details in a single image. With the method, the team stitches together nanometer resolution photographs of what's gone under the scope to create a map with adjustable zoom a la Google Maps. Their study created a 281-gigapixel image (packed with 16 million pixels per inch) of a 1.5-millimeter-long zebrafish embryo.

Inspiration Versus Aspiration: Two Approaches to Innovation Leadership | Innovation Management | @liminno | Scoop.it
Inspiring leadership is what we have all been led to believe creates successful businesses. The fact that history is dotted with examples of successful companies which businesses study closely for clues their own leaders can emulate, clearly shows that we believe there is a formulaic style of leadership which is key to a thriving business. If only it were that simple. Kate Tojeiro, founder of progressive leadership consultancy, X-Fusion, takes a closer look at two key types of leaders.

Shifting the Meaning of Hierarchy to Community

Shifting the Meaning of Hierarchy to Community | @liminno | Scoop.it

Over the last year or so, a fascinating bow wave of interest has been converging on a growing cadre of companies who appear to be doing something quite novel and seemingly new. Specifically, these organizations have apparently thrown off many of the traditional structures and processes of corporate management. Interestingly, all of these organizations are focusing on change through people first, technology second, if at all.

Are You Ready to Lose Control?

Are You Ready to Lose Control? | @liminno | Scoop.it

Control: It’s the essence of management. We’re trained to measure inputs, throughputs, and outputs in hopes of increasing efficiency and producing desired results. In a world of linear processes, such as in the factories of the Industrial Age, that made sense. But in today’s knowledge economy, where enterprises are complex, adaptive systems, it’s counterproductive.

 

The real problem is confusion between control and order. Control implies centralized control and hierarchical relationships. The person with control tells others what to do and whether they are successful or not. Order, on the other hand, emerges from self-organization. There may not be anyone telling others what to do, yet things get done—often with great efficiency and effectiveness. People know what is expected of them and what they can expect of others.

 

But how can this be true? Mustn’t an orchestra have a conductor? A dance troupe, a choreographer? A company, a CEO?

 

Not necessarily. Nature abounds with examples of what is known as swarm intelligence. Termites build intricate dwellings without the benefit of set of plans or engineers with advanced degrees. Birds migrate thousands of miles in formations where the lead position rotates to optimize their collective capacity. There are no marching orders or hierarchies dictating who leads. Massive flocks of starlings engage in intricate maneuvers known as murmuration with neither collisions nor confusion. There is order without overarching control. Indeed, our obsession with control helps explain why human-designed organizations fail to achieve such beautiful synchronicity.

This ties with the Belasco and Stayer thinking. Humans tend to seek control. Feeling out of control of ourselves and our lives can cause physiological effects. So passing it to others is tough.
Steve Bax's curator insight, April 23, 1:43 AM

Another stimulating scoop from Kenneth. This ties with the Buffalo and Geese theory from Belasco and Stayer. Passing control to others is not always easy.

Transitioning from globalization to Eco-Localism.

This is also what Blue Economy strives at,

So much is happening in this world

I like how Fritjof Capra writes it:

"

We do not need to invent sustainable human communities. We can learn from societies that have lived sustainably for centuries. We can also model communities after nature's ecosystems, which are sustainable communities of plants, animals, and microorganisms. Since the outstanding characteristic of the biosphere is its inherent ability to sustain life, a sustainable human community must be designed in such a manner that its technologies and social institutions honor, support, and cooperate with nature's inherent ability to sustain life."

John Payne's curator insight, July 20, 7:47 AM

I doubt the narrator of this video would recognize roboticists as allies, and also expect that many roboticists won't immediately see a connection. That connection is encapsulated in the word "attention".  In a world in which farmers are hard-pressed to find enough help at a wage they can afford, there isn't enough attention to go around, With the result that crops not requiring so much attention are substituted for those requiring more, and, where no subsidies exist, concern for environmental issues go wanting. Robotics can supply the needed attention, in the most basic sense for now, but eventually in all senses of the word.

I remember a few years ago, every conference I went to featured a talk about Design Thinking.

Then, user experience and digital innovation started grabbing the headlines, and Design Thinking started to fall by the side.

How to Manage Talented People by Not Bossing Them Around

How to Manage Talented People by Not Bossing Them Around | @liminno | Scoop.it
Getting rid of managers may seem like just another tech trend, but much of the skepticism around going “bossless” or flat is due to misleading terminology.
Gisele HELOU's insight:

Rather than assigning and approving tasks at every turn, then, management is about keeping people in motion and getting out of their way.

 

Power, leadership, and even hierarchy still exist in these alternative structures, but instead of running along career ladders and hanging out in corner offices, they tend to be decentralized and dynamic rather than static and top-down.

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction | @liminno | Scoop.it
In a workplace infused with top down, hierarchical, departmental silos, change management is the new requirement for leadership success. With a market comprised of fickle consumers and workplaces brimming with employee identity crises, leadership success requires more patience, poise, and time-to-think – and the ability to seamlessly connect the dots of opportunity. The marketplace requirements to compete are evolving so quickly that leadership is struggling to stay ahead of the course; unsuccessful efforts to be proactive and sustain organizational readiness will come at an extremely high cost. As such, the demand for leadership that is willing and capable of tackling change management head-on – already in short supply – is at a premium. Leadership in the 21st century not only requires the ability to continuously manage crisis and change – but also the circular vision to see around, beneath and beyond the obvious in order to anticipate the unexpected before circumstances force your hand. As you embark upon your change management journey, here are ten things that will challenge your capabilities as a change agent and potentially become defining moments along your leadership success path.

We are still early in assessing these types of organizations, but there is some evidence that they work. It is a matter of re-culturing, which takes time and patience. Semco is an example of the way this works.

 

One would think education would be a prime profession and organization for this to work in. Yet, I found it rigidly hierarchical and autocratic verging on authoritarian.

 

I attempted to use consensus in my classroom and it worked well with some students and others not so well, but over all it was successful with patience and perseverance. One challenge is teachers are often treated in ways that do not lead to consensus.
