John Michel's curator insight, May 26, 2013 9:19 PM

Your zone of genius is your unique power. It is a one-of-a-kind quality that you bring to your life and to your work and lets you do certain things better than almost anyone else. Often times this is at the intersection of your innate talents and passions and is often difficult to distinguish in yourself as unique or special because it comes so naturally. While we might share common skills, interests, or work styles with others — your zone cannot be replicated by anyone else.

The 25 Most Powerful Women Engineers In Tech

The 25 Most Powerful Women Engineers In Tech | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it
What glass ceiling?
Amy Ragsdale's insight:

From the article: "When a pregnant Marissa Meyer took over as Yahoo's CEO last year, the tech industry seemed to enter a new era: the end of the glass ceiling.

But the truth is, there's still an alarming shortage of women becoming engineers, particularly software engineers."

Amy Ragsdale's curator insight, May 17, 2013 9:25 AM

From the article: "less than 12 percent of computer science degrees earned in 2010-11 were awarded to women.

 

There's a lot of programs to encourage more women to enter the field from the Ladycoders seminars to the Anita Borg Institute (ABI), which today announced the winners of its 2013 Women of Vision Awards.

 

For the women who do choose a tech career, the sky's the limit. There's plenty of opportunity to become a power player, at big companies and hot startups alike."

In 1996, 51% of US employees were reported to be members of team.  By 2006, it had increased to 84%. As our world becomes more complex, the need for teams will continue to grow. Understanding the characteristics of effective teams gives you a target to shoot for and better prepares you to support your team’s development.

All great points... particularly # 3. Without trust, not much else can happen.
AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, May 15, 2013 1:17 PM

Tpotally agree with Don on item #5.  I also like #3.

 

Create an environment of trust.

Many organizations believe internal trust is nice to have but not a key factor for bottom line profitability. That simply isn’t true. Trust directly affects speed and cost. When trust diminishes, speed goes down and costs go up. These economic factors are usually disguised as other things, but when there isn’t trust between team members, or between the company and its customers, it is impossible to achieve real success. The myths are that trust is built solely on integrity, that you either have it or you don’t, that if lost it can’t be restored, and that it can’t be taught. The realities are that trust is a function of both character and competency, it can be both created and destroyed, it can be restored (in most cases), and be taught and developed into a measurable strategic advantage.

9 Qualities of Remarkable Entrepreneurs

9 Qualities of Remarkable Entrepreneurs | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

This article was written by Jeff Hayden for Inc. Magazine. I loved reading it, perhaps you can find yourself or people you know in his description of remarkable entrepreneurs.

 

"What separates the best from everyone else?

 

Remarkable entrepreneurs do more than make money. They are the few who possess qualities that don't appear on balance sheets but do make a significant impact on the lives of their employees, industries, and communities.

 

Here are nine qualities of remarkable entrepreneurs:

 

#1. They find happiness in the success of others

#2. They relentlessly seek new experiences

#3. They don't think work/life balance; they just think life

#4. They're incredibly empathetic

#5. They have something to prove - to themselves

#6. They ignore the 40-hour workweek hype

#7. They see money as a responsibility, not a reward

#8. They don't think they're remarkable

#9. They know that success is fleeting, but dignity and respect last forever

Amy Ragsdale's insight:

From the article: "There are authors and actors who only show up when they have something to sell, who hit the road to briefly entertain us, pitch us and then leave. If you love their work, then by all means, buy it! But the frequent blogger is here for another reason. He or she has something to share and is relentlessly showing up to teach and lead and connect."

#MobileDev : Test Early, Test Often, Test on Everything?

#MobileDev : Test Early, Test Often, Test on Everything? | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

Testing any mobile app presents a wide range of challenges. The often repeated but rarely followed software best practice of test early, test often is harder to adhere to than usual due to the fragmentation of the target environment and the relative maturity of tools. The increased acceptance of apps by mainstream consumers and intense competition have raised the bars for user experience and quality. There is more to test than ever, yet often very limited budget for doing so. Fortunately every challenge presents an opportunity and a vast array of tools vendors are racing to fill the gaps.
