The Plot Against France - NYTimes.com

The Plot Against France - NYTimes.com | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

For the plot against France — I’m being a bit tongue in cheek here, but there really are a lot of people trying to bad-mouth the place — is one clear demonstration that in Europe, as in America, fiscal scolds don’t really care about deficits. Instead, they’re using debt fears to advance an ideological agenda. And France, which refuses to play along, has become the target of incessant negative propaganda.

Anne Landreat's insight:

U.S. fiscal scolds turn out, almost invariably, to be much more interested in slashing Medicare and Social Security than they are in actually cutting deficits.

Europe’s austerians are now revealing themselves to be pretty much the same.

France has committed the unforgivable sin of being fiscally responsible without inflicting pain on the poor and unlucky. And it must be punished.

You know what kind of sucks about riding a bike? Other than all that pedaling? Bike helmets. Sure, they keep that overrated "brain" from getting splattered, but they take a lot of the open-air-joy out of things, and they're not comfortable.

80% Of Companies Don't Care About Company Culture--Do You?

80% Of Companies Don't Care About Company Culture--Do You? | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Some believe company culture can be mandated from the top down. Some believe it emerges on its own from the bottom up. A Design Executive Officer, or DEO, sidesteps this debate. He knows it must be built--iteratively, collaboratively, and over time--from the inside out.

 

 

Anne Landreat's insight:

Culture is the unique collection of beliefs and practices that communicates a company’s values, whether or not they’ve been formalized or articulated. A well-designed culture unites stakeholders in a shared understanding of “the right thing to do.” It becomes the unseen but firmly rooted infrastructure that coaches new hires and comforts old-timers. It’s the force that attracts like-minded talent and repels those with different attitudes or behaviors. A positive company culture can boost growth, while a negative or mediocre one can speed failure.

 

What about your company culture?

La communication d'entreprise sera émotion ou ne sera plus

La communication d'entreprise sera émotion ou ne sera plus | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Lorsque les modèles d'entreprise dysfonctionnement, lorsqu'on ne sait plus ni prévoir ni planifier, lorsque le changement s'impose face au chaos, lorsque l’incertitude domine et les phénomènes de repli et d’individualisme tendent à gangréner les rapports de travail, l'émotion devient un outil pour repenser l'avenir, mobiliser, créer et innover.

L'Etat fait la course aux scops | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

En toile de fond du mois de l’Economie sociale et solidaire (ESS) de novembre 2013, une nouveauté: la loi cadre dont le projet a été dévoilé en juillet par Benoît Hamon, ministre chargé du dossier, et qu'il présentait à l'Assemblée nationale ce 6 novembre 2013. Elle donne une plus grande visibilité à l’ESS et lui octroie de nouveaux outils pour que les entreprises du secteur puissent se développer et contribuer à la relance de l’emploi. La priorité consiste maintenant à ouvrir les accès à ces nouveaux outils, logés par exemple au sein de la Banque publique d’investissement (Bpifrance).

Complexity is increasing. People demand simpler messages. How can leaders deliver?
Anne Landreat's insight:

Increasing complexity creates a growing social appeal of simple messages and solutions.

When simplicity does not deliver solutions or when the stakeholders craves a simplicity that is not yet possible, how does a leader progress?

 

1. Converse, Don’t Communicate

2. Talk Purpose, Not Plan

3. Use Immersion, Not Information

4. Offer Confidence, Not Certainty

Ce sont les valeurs de l'innovation ouverte qui changent le monde ! - Les Échos (Blog)

Ce sont les valeurs de l'innovation ouverte qui changent le monde ! - Les Échos (Blog) | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Ce sont les valeurs de l'innovation ouverte qui changent le monde !

Le designer Massimo Menichinelli (@openp2pdesign) s’est intéressé aux Fab Labs parce qu’il s’intéressait aux processus de collaboration et à la conception ouverte (voir sa présentation). Il s’est notamment intéressé à comprendre en quoi les modèles open source avaient une influence sur la conception. Il a aussi commis un intéressant travail d’analyse de la communauté des makers italiens pour saisir sa structure et son fonctionnement.


Via Laurent SEBAUX
Anne Landreat's insight:

“Je suis bien consciente que la majorité des gens ne partagent pas ma vision du monde” que tout le monde n’est pas catastrophé par la perspective du réchauffement climatique, que tout le monde ne deviendra pas un maker du jour au lendemain… Oui, l’imprimante 3D, ce gadget appelé à changer le monde, ne sert pour l’instant qu’à créer d’autres gadgets… Mais l’important est l’esprit qu’il insuffle. “Face à l’urgence à laquelle nous sommes confrontés, l’accès libre permet d’aller plus vite et plus loin.”

Il faut continuer à le faire savoir, comme nous le fait savoir le succès des projets qui reposent sur ces valeurs, à l’image du stimulant Protei de Cesar Harada qui se propose de nettoyer les océans que nous avons pollués, ou comme le propose Wikispeed, la voiture open source qui ne consomme que deux litres aux cent…

Il faut continuer à diffuser l’innovation ouverte comme le font toujours plus de porteurs d’initiatives du quotidien et faire que les pouvoirs publics s’en emparent et relaient ces valeurs, conclut Anne-Sophie Novel. Ce sont elles qui changeront le monde, qui nous aideront à le réparer et à nous le réapproprier.

Les femmes ne représentent que 3,7% des auteurs des manuels scolaires de Français

Les femmes ne représentent que 3,7% des auteurs des manuels scolaires de Français | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

“Femmes dans les manuels scolaires de Français : selon une étude, elles sont stéréotypées et sous-représentées

 

Où sont les femmes?”, comme dit la chanson ? Pas dans les manuels scolaires, en tout cas. Selon une étude, que s'est procurée en exclusivité Le HuffPost, du Centre Hubertine Auclert, qui a disséqué 17 manuels de Français de seconde générale, technologique et professionnelle, elles ne forment que 3,7% des auteurs. Les quelques femmes citées apparaissent comme les survivantes d’un raz-de-marée, par ailleurs empreint de stéréotypes et de clichés rarement expliqués ou mis en contexte, si l’on en croit cette étude.

 

D’où une question : faut-il réécrire les manuels scolaires?

Affligeant.

A Strategy That Makes Sense – Hiring Optimistic People

A Strategy That Makes Sense – Hiring Optimistic People | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

I look for management and hiring wisdom wherever I can find it, and sometimes, I find it in the The New York Times’ Corner Office column.

Although the advice can, on occasion, be silly or  a bit out of whack, it’s often insightful stuff worth some thought and consideration.

That’s why I found the comments from Katia Beauchamp, co-founder and co-chief executive of Birchbox, a beauty products website, pretty interesting. She tackled a topic that is near and dear to my heart — optimism as a workplace best practice.

Google : les salariés bousculent le mythe

Google : les salariés bousculent le mythe | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it
Le géant de l'informatique, pourtant auréolé d'une réputation d'entreprise modèle, est loin d'être un Éden pour ses salariés. Entre querelles d'ego et faiblesses managériales, leurs témoignages chamboulent les idées reçues.
Anne Landreat's insight:

Nul n'est à l'abri, et c'est ce qui s'est passé dans des entreprises aussi en pointes sur leurs marchés que Kodak, Nokia, General Motors ou Blackberry.

Des cultures d'entreprise qui, parce que dominantes jusqu'à l'hégémonie, se mettent à écraser l'individu, son génie créatif, son esprit d'initiative et sa capacité à sonner l'alerte au mépris de leur propre performance et, parfois, de leur survie.

Observez bien Google dans les années à venir. Vous pourriez avoir des surprises si la tendance ne s'inverse pas en interne.

Putting the I back in Team

Putting the I back in Team | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Mention the age-old adage “there’s no I in team” these days and you’ll likely get a roll of eyes and a few tired comments. Well, I hope that’s what happens. We are surely way past the days when individual talent, ideas and efforts are compromised to end up with a mediocre or easier to manage result.

Anne Landreat's insight:

Way past, really?.. Unfortunately, that's not what I experience or witness in most organizations I'm working with...

 

There is a long way to go still and these beliefs, even though completely outdated, have a hard time to die. And inhabit managers' or leader's heads as well as team members' themselves who too often censor themselves when diverging.

Coworking, Serendipity, And Why Size Doesn’t (Always) Matter

Coworking, Serendipity, And Why Size Doesn’t (Always) Matter | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Coworking breaks down the emotional barriers (and sometimes the physical ones too) that the traditional business world put up to keep us each in our place. Isolated. After working in this vacuum for a few years, its no wonder some of the best and brightest are striking out on their own, trading a little financial security for a lot of professional freedom. Coworking provides solopreneurs with exactly what they’re looking for: a place where collaboration and community are highly valued, where social capital is more important than currency, and where titles and profit margins take a back seat to the unique talents that each of us bring to the table.

Anne Landreat's insight:

Companies can alter their culture to become “serendipity machines”, places where these valuable encounters have no choice but to take place.

Innovation and Culture – Two Halves of the Same Coin

Innovation and Culture – Two Halves of the Same Coin | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it
There would be few organisations that did not cite innovation as a desirable quality in their workforce, whether as part of the whole organisational culture, or critical in one area.

Often, in fact, the catalyst for innovation can be tough times, when organisations have to find very different ways of operating. Perhaps, one day, organisations will look back on this particular environment with gratitude. The mother of invention is, after all, necessity.

But creating a culture of innovation, where people feel empowered to find better ways of doing things, is not an easy challenge. The way an organisation has operated for years, often very successfully, can make it difficult to get an idea off the ground. The result is frustration for employees and missed opportunities for the business. However there are a range of steps a business can take to put innovation at the heart of its strategy. The starting place is more often than not leadership.

Employee engagement problems? Deescalate them with ‘What’s working?’

Employee engagement problems? Deescalate them with ‘What’s working?’ | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Are you suffering from people-problem fact-attacks? Check to see if you have these symptoms: your people can tell you in great detail what the problem is with employee engagement, empowerment, etc; they have the data to prove they are right; they have enough anecdotal information to substantiate that they have the ‘facts’ to fix what they have decided is wrong.

Whether your organization is relatively simple or complex it usually looks chaotic. You’ll have plenty of people – staff, consultants, etc. – telling you that there’s a crisis. Do we need to know the real problem? Yes, but only to clarify it. There will undoubtedly be problems, some of them a crisis. If you run IT at a telco and your system is down for an hour – it’s a problem, so fix it. On the other hand, a people system, e.g., poor morale or disengaged staff is a problem that can more effortlessly be fixed another way.

Anne Landreat's insight:

As William James said, “The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.”
