How to Align Employees with Your Company's Vision
Tech Cocktail
Alex Raymond: Most companies aren't aligned because executives and managers don't spend the time necessary to communicate the company's mission, vision, and goals to all employees.

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, October 6, 2013 10:57 PM

There are two interesting parts of the article for me...


First, Kapta has data that nearly 50% of employee activity is not aligned with an organizations goals


Second.  Alex Raymond's four part framework for effective goal setting:


  • Clear: There should be no business jargon or crazy acronyms in the goal. Plain English that anyone can understand is best.
  • Ambitious: The goal should be bold and exciting, something for people to rally around. Not impossible to reach, but still aggressive.
  • Inclusive: Everyone in the company needs to understand how they contribute to each goal. Otherwise, employees can lose motivation and clarity.
  • Defined: Goals need to have specific metrics and deadlines to be effective. Don’t be too detailed, but at least make sure you know what success looks like.

Report: 76% of Professionals Using Curation Saw an Impact on Business Goals

Report: 76% of Professionals Using Curation Saw an Impact on Business Goals | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

During the first quarter of 2014, Scoop.it conducted a survey of over 1,500 professionals who had been using content curation as a part of their content strategy over the previous year. While it’s old news that more marketers are turning to content marketing and curation & making more space in their strategies for both, we wanted to find out what actually happened once these professionals had taken the proverbial leap.

Content Curation and its importance in business

Lynn Pineda's curator insight, April 11, 11:00 AM

This survey shows how curating content has helped business professionals, no matter what your profession is, as it's not just for Real Estate. Keeping up with content needs can sometimes be challenging and curating content can help us to reach our goals. Scoop.it needs to be included more in my strategy, that's for sure!
