Are We in an An Age of Collective Learning?

Are We in an An Age of Collective Learning? | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Social learning is not just the technology of social media, although it makes use of it. It is not merely the ability to express yourself in a group of opt-in friends. Social learning combines social media tools with a shift in the corporate culture, a shift that encourages ongoing knowledge transfer and connects people in ways that make learning a joy.

The End of Leadership--at Least As We Know It! | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
America is currently facing a crisis of leadership in business and in government. Yet at the same time – participation in leadership seminars and programs has never been higher. The leadership industry, with many of  its roots in America, is now a $50 billion industry. If America is so good at [...]

 

Kellerman explains that the current state of leadership is no better understood or produced than it was 40 years ago and that followers are becoming more and more disenchanted by those who are leading them.


Though the leadership industry thrives, leadership in practice is declining in performance.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 2:33 PM

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Deborah Verran's comment, March 29, 6:13 PM
Leadership is not just about having ability it is all about demonstrating that ability in practice i.e. standing up & accepting both responsibility & accountability
Gust MEES's comment, March 29, 6:40 PM

The Big Lie of Strategic Planning

The Big Lie of Strategic Planning | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

All executives know that strategy is important. But almost all also find it scary, because it forces them to confront a future they can only guess at. Worse, actually choosing a strategy entails making decisions that explicitly cut off possibilities and options. An executive may well fear that getting those decisions wrong will wreck his or her career.

 

The natural reaction is to make the challenge less daunting by turning it into a problem that can be solved with tried and tested tools. That nearly always means spending weeks or even months preparing a comprehensive plan for how the company will invest in existing and new assets and capabilities in order to achieve a target – an increased share of the market, say, or a share in some new one. The plan is typically supported with detailed spreadsheets that project costs and revenue quite far into the future. By the end of the process, everyone feels a lot less scared.

Content Marketers Could Become Their Own Worst Enemy - Rand's Blog

Content Marketers Could Become Their Own Worst Enemy - Rand's Blog | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
Content is powerful. It helps websites and companies earn traffic, earn amplification through social media, build trust with an audience, all at a cost far lower than traditional or online paid marketing channels. But, sometime in the next few years, I’m worried that it may become a more challenging, more risky, and less dividend-paying investment. …

[Slideshare] The impact of Innovation

Innovation is driven by hope and fear. By humans dreaming of a better place. Emerging technologies are maintaining scale and deflation, accelerating the pace of change, having a profound impact on how societies, institutions, businesses and individuals interact. The emergence of new identities, facilitated by technologies and enabled by new values, is the new revolution. A peer-to-peer revolution. - See more at: http://www.innovationexcellence.com/blog/2014/01/16/the-impact-of-innovation/#sthash.WKS2DYdX.dpuf

Tutorial for Info Power

Tutorial for Info Power | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 10, 6:24 AM

This detailed tutorial from California State University - Chico provides students with an opporunity to learn how to:'

* Investigate - What does this mean? To choose a topic you must first identify your topic. This section walks you through this concept, providing examples as well as having the student make decisions about specific areas based on what has been presented.

* Search -  Searching the web provides a vast amount of information that is unfiltered...so learn how to do effective and efficient searching, using key words and phrases, as well as learning about databases, scholarlly articles, popular articles and more.

* Locate - Finding information in a library or online requires that you undersand the system used to locate it and how to cite the resource. 

* Evaluate - Evaluating requires that you use higher order thinking skills and determine which information is accurate. The tutorial introduces the CRAAP test as a tool students may use. Is the information Correct, Relevant, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose. Each "clue" is explored and you are given information to evaluate for each.

* Use - Learning how to put it together, taking the information you have learned it is time to communicate this to others. The form may vary but you still must be alert to issues such as plagiarism and the need to cite information. Again there are interactive components in the tutorial for students to practice with.

This is a great resource but it is written for the college level. It could be used with high school students and you might use sections with students in lower grades as a class tool.

Excellent piece filled with stats and studies illustrating how content creation, distribution and curation are shifting...more consumer driven, from multiple platforms and players, and more automation. Companies will be challenged to stay on top of these trends, and continue creating high quality, consumer focused content that "surprises" its readers (vs churning out predictable content). Creativity and innovation will be even more critical as we move ahead...

Now the time has come for NEW INNOVATION: "First:  Simplicity of Set UP. The user could take the computer out of the box, plug it in, and be ready to go." Steve Jobs

The design of the product comes first, the development of the hardware had to follow to fit the design, never the other way around. Design goes into the very inner workings of a device.
