Some interesting research carried out by Google. Can you use any of this when planning your own development?
Definitely Worth Reading: We have often thought that what Google has discovered was/is the most effective way to lead others (going into my 3rd decade leading soldiers and engineers), and we think this is a skill development list worth thinking about if you are a manager or leader in any organization.

I like this small post + the 4-minutes video, it just made the planning transparent and dynamic... I guess, this one-page-plan is not really for the big organizations with operations in several countries, with HQ, etc. but rather for the smaller businesses... though it's not inventing the wheel, it helps to focus the changing efforts with its simple NOW-WHERE-HOW approach...
A very simple way to look at a business strategy.

In this article companies and small business revaluated how they allow their employee to make contributes to building a better brand. The question that was explored by most CEO's is, How to make this work environment a more engaging involvement for idea.
Well, some companies do this by creating a designated space where employees can be creative. Most office spaces, which are normally a sea of cubicles, have little room physically and emotionally where creativity and innovation can flourish.

Most small businesses that employ staff, find that the level of motivation in individuals can vary remarkably, and even for individuals their motivation levels can rise or fall dramatically over time.
