Entrepreneurship and 3 Factors to Survive in the Post-Job Economy

Entrepreneurship and 3 Factors to Survive in the Post-Job Economy | Talent and Performance Development | Scoop.it

"A knowledge era is a fine thing, it sounds great … for a minority of people. So how do we (re)find a balance between jobs and people having them?""  How do people adapt to a post-job society?  


One of my clients is an educational institution and I was heartened to learn that they are moving away from job preparation to a focus on entrepreneurship. They see the numbers. Their graduates are not getting jobs. Creating our own work will be the only option for many of us.


Ross Dawson provides some good advice on what we can do to prepare for a post-job economy.


As I often say, in a connected world, unless your skills are world-class, you are a commodity.   However there are three domains in which individuals and organizations can transcend commoditization and push their value creation to the other end of the spectrum, where they can command their price and choose their work.


The three domains are:

    • EXPERTISE
    • RELATIONSHIPS
    • INNOVATION

The post-job economy is hitting the unemployed and the millennial generation hard.  There will be reinvention, but how?  This is one of a number of posts I'll be scooping this year with the tag "post-job" and "post job economy" to explore this concept in depth in 2014.   ~  D

Business & Talent Building: Problems With Incubators, and How to Solve Them

Business & Talent Building: Problems With Incubators, and How to Solve Them | Talent and Performance Development | Scoop.it

"Financing isn't success, and office space isn't value...  there are over 7,500 business incubators around the world. Most of them fail."



The first business incubator in the U.S. opened in 1959 and is still operating. In the last couple of years, we have seen a renaissance in the incubator business. Pioneered by YCombinator, Silicon Valley's flagship incubator led by Paul Graham, incubators have come back with a vengeance.


____________________

...incubators ...need to overcome two pitfalls: they need to provide real value, not just office space, and they need to measure success in more than just outside funding.

____________________

YCombinator has seen some significant successes...[and] has fueled ...an incubator bubble.... Incubator are now a global phenomenon, and there isn't a major city in the world where an incubator isn't cropping up.


For incubators to live up to their full economic potential, they need to overcome two pitfalls: they need to provide real value, not just office space, and they need to measure success in more than just outside funding.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

A management quote I have adapted seems to fit here: "If it can be measured with the right measures at the right time with the right tools and by the right people, it can lead to new productivity, motivation and high performance."  

Ownership of good data can power incubator success, entrepreneurial spirit and innovation.  ~  Deb
