The Obsession With Silicon Everywhere

The Obsession With Silicon Everywhere | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
There are many commentators who argue that there is a bubble in Silicon Valley today. They may or may not be right, but there is certainly a bubble in places named after the preeminent global tech ecosystem. 

 

Along this line, realize that the most impactful change is going to come from bottoms-up ecosystem development. There is incredible money to be made in innovation ecosystems, and so there is rarely an incentive problem when it comes to the numbers. Often a change in culture is the first step to building these regions, and that will only come when the people decide it themselves."

How To Practice Good Design

How To Practice Good Design | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"I love design and startup and I firmly believe magical companies emerge when these two meet, e.g. Braun, Apple, Airbnb, Medium, YouTube, Square, and Nest. The critical mass of combined business, design and technical skills have made these companies incredibly successful.

But I always feel people overcomplicate design with their multiple principles and frameworks. Design should be simple, replicable and top of mind in a startup. At Mammoth we think of design as a state of mind, a simple yet creative approach to a problem. It’s how we think we will empathize with our users and unearth unarticulated opportunities. This is how we approach it." Ashish Krishna (@specx)

Saadia Asif's curator insight, May 27, 5:33 AM

A great reading list that you should focus on immediately.  It is diverse enough that you don't feel you are re-reading the same material and broad enough to address so many of the questions about the entrepreneurial process.

Geoff Feldman's curator insight, May 27, 8:42 AM

Treading articles and books (digital or paper) is essential to broaden your insights

Basta con tener curiosidad y acercarse a uno de los bares donde estos días se celebra Pint of Science, un festival que llega por primera vez a España con la intención de derribar esas barreras que separan la ciencia de la sociedad.

Context Is King: Why Today's MOOCs Don't Meet Corporate Needs

Context Is King: Why Today's MOOCs Don't Meet Corporate Needs | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
We need to return to the MOOC as originally envisioned: social learning. Best-in-class corporate education creates a place where colleagues can connect, form networks, and share ideas. It is increasingly important to engage learners socially, because they stand to learn as much from each other as from formal instruction. This does not require forgoing the best-in-class lectures, but rather re-packaging them as part of a broader pedagogical strategy that includes social learning as a core part of the student experience.

Millennials Are Destroying Banks, And It’s The Banks’ Fault | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Millennials are rejecting home ownership across the land. Millennials aren’t buying crap anymore, destroying businesses that, well, sell crap

 

I want a bank where absolutely everything can happen through my phone, and if I need help, I can ask a banker about something instantly through the click of a button. I want a concentrated set of services designed just for me, and not a menu with more than fifty options for services that aren’t even relevant for me.

 

I want to transfer money in ten seconds – not ten screens."

6 Myths About Empowering Employees

6 Myths About Empowering Employees | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

nt"When Dr. Stephen R. Covey visited the nuclear powered submarine I commanded, the USS Santa Fe, he told me it was the “most empowering workplace he’d ever seen.” It was a bit ironic for me, because I’m sour on the word empowerment and I’m sour on empowerment programs. To me, saying we need an empowerment program is like saying we need a swimming program. The implication is that swimming isn’t a natural occurring behavior for our people. So, what we are saying when we say we need an empowerment program is that the fundamental way we run our organization is dis-empowering, or is it de-empowering?" David Marquet
