33 HBR Blog Posts you should read Before 2013 - Katherine Bell @KatherineABell | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

The topics that most preoccupied our authors and readers in 2012 reflected our shared anxieties: the pressures exerted on our businesses by technology and the global economy — no end to economic uncertainty, the need to make sense of vast amounts of data, the problem and opportunity of disruptive innovation; as well as perennial personal worries — finding work that matters, never getting enough done.

 

We hope you'll find some insights here you may have missed the first time around, and that they'll help you make 2013 a productive and innovative year for your company and yourself.

The Future of StoryTelling 2012 - Empathy, Neurochemistry, and the Dramatic Arc [Video] - Paul Zak

   The emotionally charged story recounted at the beginning Dr. Paul Zak's film—of a terminally ill two-year-old named Ben and his father—offers a simple yet remarkable case study in how the human brain responds to effective storytelling.

   As part of his study, Dr. Zak, a founding pioneer in the emerging field of neuroeconomics, closely monitored the neural activity of hundreds of people who viewed Ben's story.

   What he discovered is that even the simplest narrative, if it is highly engaging and follows the classic dramatic arc outlined by the German playwright Gustav Freytag, can evoke powerful empathic responses associated with specific neurochemicals, namely cortisol and oxytocin.

   Those brain responses, in turn, can translate readily into concrete action—in the case of Dr. Zak's study subjects, generous donations to charity and even monetary gifts to fellow participants.

   By contrast, stories that fail to follow the dramatic arc of rising action/climax/denouement—no matter how outwardly happy or pleasant those stories may be—elicit little if any emotional or chemical response, and correspond to a similar absence of action.

De grote transformatie van de wereldeconomie - Anna Stupnytska

De grote transformatie van de wereldeconomie - Anna Stupnytska | Mapmakers | Scoop.it
Goldman Sachs verwacht dat de wereldeconomie tot het einde van dit decennium jaarlijks met gemiddeld 4,3 procent zal groeien. Dat groeiniveau ligt aanzienlijk boven het gemiddelde van de afgelopen drie decennia. De drijfveer voor deze sterke economische groei zal de ontwikkeling zijn van acht landen die wij tot de ‘groeimarkten’ hebben gedoopt: Brazilië, Rusland, India, China, Mexico, Zuid-Korea, Turkije en Indonesië. De eerste vier zijn de welbekende BRIC’s en de overige zijn de vier sterkste landen van de groep die door Goldman Sachs is gedoopt tot ‘Next 11’ – de elf landen die de BRIC’s volgen qua ontwikkeling. Deze acht zullen volgens onze schattingen tussen 2011 en 2020 ruim 15 biljoen dollar aan extra groei genereren, dat bedrag komt globaal overeen met de huidige omvang van de Amerikaanse economie.
