But here’s the thing: the history of social media actually goes back a lot further, and its roots can be found in blogging, Google, AOL, ICQ, the beginnings of the world wide web and, perhaps surprisingly, CompuServe.

How Startup “Joiners” Are (and Aren’t) Like Founders

How Startup “Joiners” Are (and Aren’t) Like Founders | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

“Joiners are individuals who are drawn toward startups because they offer greater autonomy and more exciting work activities relative to large firms. But joiners are more interested in technical or functional work activities rather than in managing and building the company. In other words, they want to be part of the entrepreneurial process, but they don’t necessarily want to be ‘the boss.’”

This is an interesting article that outlines 10 observed traits that appear to be common to the majority of successful entrepreneurs. If you are not the successful entrepreneur that you envisaged when you set out on your entrepreneurial journey, this may help to get you on track, or it may help you to decide once and for all, whether the entrepreneurial journey is the right path for you to continue along.

Starving for Answers

Starving for Answers | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

In May, the United Nations announced that while globally there are 200 million fewer hungry people than there were 25 years ago, twice as many African countries are now suffering food crises. Moreover, Pacific islanders’ access to sanitation facilities is declining, and just over half of that population has potable water. When it comes to the world’s food and water, the question remains of power and agency—who gets to control the resources on which human survival depends. Former U.N. special rapporteur Olivier De Schutter challenges the agency’s claim on hunger, stating that numbers, if anything, have remained steady and explains why local responses, not solely international actions, will defeat hunger.

Art & Leadership | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

It is commonly accepted that art represents the world of the spiritual, while business represents that of the material. But they can be more similar than not. Indeed, at a time of constant change and turmoil in so many industries, the business leader can learn much from the artist.

#Strategy, not technology, drives #digital transformation- a study by @mit @deloitte

#Strategy, not technology, drives #digital transformation- a study by @mit @deloitte | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte’s 2015 global study of digital business found that maturing digital businesses are focused on integrating digital technologies, such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud, in the service of transforming how their businesses work. Less-mature digital businesses are focused on solving discrete business problems with individual digital technologies.


The ability to digitally reimagine the business is determined in large part by a clear digital strategy supported by leaders who foster a culture able to change and invent the new. While these insights are consistent with prior technology evolutions, what is unique to digital transformation is that risk taking is becoming a cultural norm as more digitally advanced companies seek new levels of competitive advantage. Equally important, employees across all age groups want to work for businesses that are deeply committed to digital progress. Company leaders need to bear this in mind in order to attract and retain the best talent.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, July 24, 1:45 PM

A survey by MIT and Deloitte on the maturity of organization regarding digital yields useful insights on the state of digital in corporations in 2015.


WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT?

Over 75%of corporations are digitally immature so there is room to improve in the future. Also, I expect that as individuals (especially older generations that are still in leadership positions) mature in their digital understanding and their own digital maturity, this will help organizations grow as well.

Schools should be more like farms, not factories

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield. Why not apply the process to education?

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 30, 9:32 PM

He is correct, schools are not factories that create duplicate models of a prototype.  Schools are also not a business, where the latest organizational model makes the system effective.  Schools are more like a community, where everyone works together to accomplish the goals developed collaboratively by all stakeholders in the community.  Notice that state and federal politicians are not in the community.
