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

Out of the Chaos: Talent and Performance Management Meets HCM with a Cool Tablet Tool

Out of the Chaos:  Talent and Performance Management Meets HCM with a Cool Tablet Tool | Talent and Performance Development | Scoop.it

The biggest miss for most organizations in the previous chaos was the connection between their workforce management, payroll, or HCM systems and their recruiting, succession, development, and planning processes.


 ...the ability to physically integrate a series of talent management processes on a proprietary but open platform device is potentially (bold mine, DN) a game-changer, 


At its annual customer forum this week, Ceridian  ...threw its hat into the integrated talent management ring, and from a strong position. ...Ceridian is rolling out more strategic, less transactional modules over the next couple of years, including succession planning, compensation and rewards, and performance management.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Systems are developing to a higher level than just record keeping & financials.  Analytics lessons from social media, e.g. Google, Facebook and YouTube analytics, have paved a path to get good as well as in-depth (Google) information, data input tools (devices) and data feedback to people.


IS this a GOOD thing?  Welll....  It may simply be the same old, same old repackaged into a shiny app on a tablet.  Success Factors is the partnership with Ceridian on the tool. 

The video on Ceridian's website features their payroll & timekeeping functions mainly.  It's pretty spiffy, for that. ~  D
