Managing For Disruption

Managing For Disruption | MM | Scoop.it

Tradition embraces stability.  Time honored principles get that way because they have strong track records of success.  The tried and true, extrapolated into the future, often looks like a sure thing, while deviating from historical norms can look downright foolish.


Yet the funny thing about the future is that there’s no guarantee that it will look like the past.  Contexts change and when they do, old rules no longer apply.  Following them blindly does not honor the past, but diminishes it by confusing fealty with wisdom.


Since 1960, the average lifespan of a company on the S&P 500 has fallen from more than 60 years to less than 20.  The power of technology will increase as much in the next 18 months as it has in the last 30 years.


Clearly, technology cycles have begun to outpace planning cycles.  We need to learn to manage not for stability, but for disruption.

I can only agree: Micromanaging is a killer for virtual teams. Trust and delegating responsibility are key factors for success in virtual teams.

Clare McNamara's curator insight, March 18, 2014 7:24 AM

I especially like the point about the need to gain feedback twice as often if you are leading virtually: stop texting, stop reading and responding to emails and listen.

ScienceDirect.com - Computers in Human Behavior - Does my comment count? Perceptions of political participation in an online environment | MM | Scoop.it

Highlights

•1006 adults in a nationally representative sample completed an online survey.

•Online and offline political behaviors are often seen as occupying separate spheres.

•Research shows the most common online behavior was signing a petition.

•The most common offline one was voting.

•Conclusions suggest most citizens perceive political acts as communicative.

 

Abstract

Since the infancy of the Internet, scholars have posited that the medium would mobilize and engage citizens, yet the reality has proven it to be more nuanced and complex. This project examines citizens’ motivations to engage in politics online, assessing how people are driven by both a desire to influence government as well as to communicate political ideas to others. We explore the ways these two behaviors are perceived by citizens in online versus offline contexts. We also examine how such perceptions can predict certain behaviors, such as “friending” a candidate and messaging with friends about politics. We find that these behaviors are indeed perceived differently among citizens, and that perceptions predict the likelihood of participating in online political forums.

Change Leader, Change Thyself | MM | Scoop.it

Organizational change is inseparable from individual change. Simply put, change efforts often falter because individuals overlook the need to make fundamental changes in themselves. Anyone who pulls the organization in new directions must look inward as well as outward.

An American Management Association study of Fortune 500 companies found that “…less than 50% of changes in their organizations were successful, and that employee resistance was the main reason for failures.”  This is why it's necessary to focus on the person.
