Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, June 3, 10:15 PM

@Jay Cross gives a detailed and clear use case of how collaborative content curation can save millions to large organizations as it saves employee time while involving them in the process.


He also explains his content curation routine that he sees as a mandatory skill to be trained by modern employers.


He makes a great job at connecting two sides of content curation:


- the fact it's saving people's time to look for meaning in information overload themselves,


- the fact it's rewarding for content curators as it helps them build their professional brands. 


A win-win no-brainer for smart organizations.
