5 Ways to Develop Employees without Spending a Dime

5 Ways to Develop Employees without Spending a Dime | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

You’re busy, busy, busy. So is your staff. There are skills and competencies that they need (or want) to develop, but you don’t have the budget to send them off to some three-day training seminar.

What does your brand stand for? [infographic]

What does your brand stand for? [infographic] | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
A brand is like the lead character of its own story.  And like any story character, brands  have values and beliefs that become associated with them through their actions.  The challenge for marketers is to characterize their brands first before...

 

Here's a terrific infographic from colleague Jim Signorelli that will help you create a persona for your business. Once you have a persona, it becomes much easier to target your storytelling and marketing/branding efforts. And connect more forcefully with customers.

 

There are 2 ways of finding your persona:

Examine all of your stories and determine their common characteristics. Then look at Jim's infographic to refine and finalize those qualities. Create your persona based on your discoveries. Examine this infographic to determine which character/characters you think you/your business embodies most. Check it against your stories. Build your persona from there.

What is a persona? It is a descriptive profile of a typical customer that includes a character type/archetype, demographic info, and as much flesh and bones information you can collect to create a bit of a story about this customer -- their likes, dislikes, challenges, etc.

 

Thanks Jim for putting together this very helpful infographic.

 

And if you want to dig into this topic more -- and get even smarter about using archetypes for marketing/branding -- read The Hero and The Outlaw; Building Extraordinary Brands Through the Power of Archetypes by M. Mark & C. Pearson. It's one of my bibles :)

Mark Smiciklas believes in "the idea that organizations adopting the use of social technology, flattening their corporate structure and making the shift towards less siloed communication and operational models will be in a better position to achieve their business objectives as the marketplace becomes more digitally connected."

The idea or concept, social business is complex. The Dachis Group offer a definition: http://bit.ly/PH7Jh4.

Unfortunately through overuse and mis-definition, people have difficulty  connecting with its meaning and context.

In his post, The Connected Company, David Gray uses a series of “city” metaphors to clearly explain how a social business is a “complex, adaptive system.”

The post inspired Mark to create this information design, presenting a visual interpretation of these ideas.

From analog to digital: Transform the Business Model - John Jackson c.s. | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

   Continuously harvesting quick wins while keeping an eye on the framework you’re building for the midterm and for the long term is challenging, to be sure. But it will prove important for consumer-facing businesses wishing to stay at the forefront of the digital revolution.

   While the journey to a digital business model will vary by sector and company, there are important commonalities as well. No matter what business you’re in, managing multiple platforms, negotiating with numerous vendors and dealing with compatibility issues will consume time, money and energy.

   Businesses looking to gain advantage will need to clearly define how they will innovate, implement, manage and monitor the application of digital solutions throughout the organization—a significant change from working on separate solutions in various parts of the business.

   What isn’t possible is to design the perfect end state at the outset. Indeed, planning a companywide transformation and locking in decisions such as platforms, software and providers in advance is a mistake. Learning through iteration will yield better returns than orchestrating a huge and complex transformation, relevant only for a short time.

   Given the speed of innovation and technology change, the principle to adopt is being fast to failure. Begin by identifying appropriate pilots and applying proof-of-concept techniques to test different options. This concept of continuous beta versions is what helps digital companies learn quickly and remain agile, and it can do the same for analog organizations that wish to digitize.

So Good they Can't Ignore You - how people really come to love what they do!

   In his new book, 'So Good they Can't Ignore You', Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice. Not only is the cliché flawed -- preexisting passions are rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work -- but it can also be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping.
   After making his case against passion, Newport sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. This book will change the way we think about our careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.

Logic+Emotion: Technology Will Only Solve 1/3 of Your Social Business Problem | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

The problem with social technology solutions—even really great technology is that it's incomplete. It's no wonder why Salesforce is making a killing, because I've seen first hand how a business will freely invest in a technology platform thinking that they have purchased a turnkey solution only to realize shortly after that they've possibly invested in the wrong solution and most definitely underestimated the other two areas which require investment (people and process).
