Acquiring the essential skills to effectively run a successful business can be a time consuming exercise, and any means of short-cutting the process, deserves serious consideration. Identifying a single activity, that can effectively assist in the quick acquisition of several key business skills, would be especially beneficial to less experienced business owners. The activity identified in this article, can be undertaken by anyone, and will benefit even experienced business owners.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Strategic management | Scoop.it
Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students. When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways. It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

I have to admit that this is very true. I have worked for both male and female managers and my male manager was rarely seen by the employees. All of the interaction was via phone or email and in my opinion that sort of management technique can make you appear unapproachable.

Why Innovation Eats Strategy for Breakfast

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, September 3, 2014 1:35 AM

Love this, "To win in these challenging times, innovation has become your most powerful source of competitive advantage. Playing yesterday's game--even with brilliant strategy--is no match for the hurricane strength winds of creative disruption. Today, an entirely new set of skills and approaches are required to succeed. Simply put: innovation eats strategy for breakfast."

Man doesn't eat by disruption alone. Disruption is disrupting, so balance is always a good idea (not really mentioned in this post). Disruption has to COME FROM some place too. Even those who disrupt innovate on or in some space or meme.

Because the disruption feels from left field to some doesn't mean that is where the idea came from. Most disruptions were sitting on the ground staring up at whoever passed by. SEEING without the hypnotic drug of status quo thinking begins DISRUPTION. SEEING is the key then NOT rejecting the disruption, "Embracing the suck." to quote a movie I saw recently becomes critical because every muscle will cry to crawl back to the safety of the status quo.

Don't do that is our advice :). Do disrupt.

Ken Cooper's curator insight, September 3, 2014 11:15 AM

Actually, the Peter Drucker quote is, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." Of course, innovation is essential. However, innovation is a team sport, and it flows from culture. The key is to establish the kind of culture that will produce a steady stream of innovation.

Innovative Leaders Transformation Model

Innovative Leaders Transformation Model | Strategic management | Scoop.it
“Today any company that isn’t rethinking its direction at least every few years—as well as constantly adjusting to changing contexts—and then quickly making significant operational changes is putting itself at risk. But, as any number of business leaders can attest, the tension between needing to stay ahead of increasingly fierce competition and needing to deliver this year’s results can be overwhelming.”

— John P. Kotter, “Accelerate!”, Harvard Business Review, November 2012
Accelerating change continues to impact every facet of business. To thrive long term, business leaders must make implementing change a core competency in order to capitalize on our changing world instead of merely trying to adapt to it.
