Influence: What Are Tools Like Klout Really Measuring?

Influence: What Are Tools Like Klout Really Measuring? | The Social Web | Scoop.it

A very interesting comparison of several measurement tools and what they really measure. [note mg]

 

For marketers, PR professionals and customer service teams, personal influence measurement tools can save time and help facilitate business decisions. Tools such as Klout, PeerIndex, Kred and TweetLevel are being used by brands to rank the relative importance of customers and prospects, prioritize customer service responses, and identify groups of influencers to target with perks and product sampling promotions.

 

But what are these personal influence measurement tools really measuring? Are they really an effective way to understand which of your customers are more influential?

 

It is easy to understand influence as a concept; if you can get other people to do something, you have influence. But it’s not at all easy to define how you would measure influence. As Nathan Gilliatt has pointed out, there is no such thing as a “unit of influence” – an observable, measurable event that reflects influence.

Social reputation and social influence are becoming as important (if not more important) than your paper-based CV and your real-world network. But can they be empirically measured, and if so, what does your score actually mean? This article gives an overview of some of the products/services that purport to give you an influence score. Whether you take it seriously is entirely up to you!

Companies are (at last) catching up with the technology and beginning to take on board the true power of the social tools available to them.


Having spent the last 5 years or so adapting their external marketing mix to absorb the power of social media, they are beginning to realise the full potential of internal social tools which are capable of speeding up business processes and breaking down silos,  allowing employees to collaborate more effectively and at greater speeds.


But they also have to realise that widespread adoption of these new tools is less about the technology and more about people and behaviours.

Can People Collaborate Effectively While Working Remotely?

Can People Collaborate Effectively While Working Remotely? | The Social Web | Scoop.it

As more workplaces become knowledge based, more companies will experience the tension of helping employees work together effectively while allowing them to do their jobs from almost anywhere.


One of the most important questions regarding the ability to work from anywhere is the effect it has on employees' engagement levels. On the one hand, working remotely offers employees a measure of autonomy that helps them feel better equipped to do their jobs well. On the other hand, employees must have positive, trusting relationships with their managers and coworkers to stay engaged, and such relationships may be more difficult to sustain with fewer opportunities for face-to-face interaction.

 

Gallup's extensive employee engagement research - presented in its recent State of the American Workplace report -- suggests that the ability to work remotely corresponds with higher engagement, but primarily among those who spend less than 20% of their total working time doing so.

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Stephen Dale's insight:

Gallup found that overall, remote workers are sllighlty more engaged (32%) than employees who work on site (28%). But there is a point of diminishing returns for engaging remote workers: Those who spend less than 20% of their time working remotely are the most engaged (35%) and have the lowest level of active disengagement (12%). These employees likely enjoy an ideal balance of both worlds opportunities for collaboration and camaraderie with coworkers at the office and the relative sense of freedom that comes from working remotely. #socbiz #agile

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, March 15, 5:33 PM
Findings form Gallup's extensive employee engagement research: 

  • Among those who never work remotely, 28% are engaged - meaning they are emotionally involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work -- while 20% are actively disengaged, meaning they are unhappy at work and tend to disrupt their coworkers' productivity. The remaining on-site workers fall into a middle category -- not engaged.
  • Among employees who spend up to 20% of their time remotely, 35% are engaged - but engagement levels drop as employees spend more time off-site.


Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 15, 7:38 PM

It could be we need to find what works best and when it works best. It might be less about working remotely or working side-by-side and doing both at appropriate times.

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, January 25, 7:16 AM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.

 

Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.

 

There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.

 

Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.

 

PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.

 

N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.

Stephen Dale's insight:

The surface web - what we see using our standard browsers - represents a mere 4% of what is really out there. The other 96% is what is knowln as the "Deep Web" or "Dark Web" and consists mainly of peer to peer networks. You need to use a dedicated web browser to access the deep web - TOR (The Onion Router) being the most popular. 

 

The Deep Web is where Bitcoin (a digital currency) is used for most e-commerce transactions. 

 

Users include the military, police, journalists.....and criminals.

 

There may be a wealth of information on the Deep Web, but you should be careful about what you look for. Just like Alice, the deeper you go, the more trouble you could find yourself in.

Lessons From Great Storytellers: LinkedIn Speaker Series with Nancy Duarte

Lessons From Great Storytellers: LinkedIn Speaker Series with Nancy Duarte | The Social Web | Scoop.it
Great ideas can change the world. But, they can only do so when effectively communicated. A powerful story is one of the best ways we can share our world-changing ideas.
Stephen Dale's insight:

Nancy Duart explains the art of storytelling, distilling it down to 3 key points:

 

1. Build a structure to your story. The shape of great communication follows a simple 3 act structure – beginning, middle and end. And, it has an undulating structure moving back and forth from what is to what could be, ending with a new bliss.

2. Understand what will resonate. Great storytellers send signals that resonate with their audience. They talk to audiences at their resonant frequency in a way that moves them. And they make the audience their hero with the goal to move their audience from one state to another through the power of story.

3. Imagine and poetically describe an amazing future. Great storytellers take a step back from their current reality. They declare the future using their prophetic imagination, and craft their words well. Their speeches are expansive and also contemplative, giving their audiences space to dream.

Stephen Dale's insight:

From the article, the future of work key aspects:

 

1. The evolution of the business/worker: We are on a trajectory that has taken us well away from lifetime employment; both companies and individuals are much more autonomous.
2. Social enterprise: Companies and their workers must be thinking about the bigger picture, e.g. sustainability, environmentalism, corporate social good/responsibility - requires a very different mindset in our workforce than our traditional organizations typically have cultivated in the past.
3. New modes of management and workforce collaboration: The collaborative economy that is remaking very concept of how business works for the digital era.
4. New transformative workplace technologies: Everything from wearable tech to mind/machine interfaces and increasingly commonplace social business tools are changing how we will work. Businesses are also becoming platforms in every sense of the word, becoming technologies in their own right.
5. New approaches for addressing diversity and inequality: Expect enormous investments made through the rest of the decade by businesses, government, and other institutions to start tackling the structural issues in the global economy. We’ve increasingly learned and come to accept how much they impact business performance and the bottom-line.
6. A shift in the fundamental relationship between workers and business: The flourishing of vast numbers of self-organizing online communities. People can just come together online and create shared value without an intermediate organization that would otherwise have to the resources required to meet their needs. The classical enterprise clearly isn’t as necessary as before for many purpose.
7. Co-evolutionary changes in society and global/regional culture that impact the workplace: Technology improves what’s possible by dramatically lowering the effort, time, or cost of doing something. This sets expectation and enables/encourages new types of behavior in people and society as a whole. We need to better understand where this co-evolutionary process is taking us, as well as anticipating how these new directions will impact - it will affect our businesses.

Can A Big Old Hierarchical Bureaucracy Become A 21st Century Network?

Can A Big Old Hierarchical Bureaucracy Become A 21st Century Network? | The Social Web | Scoop.it
Can a big old hierarchical bureaucracy become a 21st century networked firm? My interview with Rod Collins, former CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal Employee Program. Many firms would often rather die than change. For some, a hybrid approach may help.
Stephen Dale's insight:

Excellent article  from Steve Denning, based on an interview with

Rod Collins, author of the book, Wiki Management .

 

Collins is clear that for an organization to survive it must  shift to a network-based management with peer-based accountability,


There are three basic options. The choice will depend on the organization's particular history:


The  lattice option has no hierarchy, no bosses, and work is self-organized.

The campus option, modelled on Google, where there is a loose hierarchy. They have managers but the reporting relationships are so spread—about a 60:1 ratio—that it is impossible for the managers to micro-manage the work.

The hybrid option, which is more likely what a big old firm is going to use. Hybrid options are transition options, blending network features with a hierarchical structure. 


In the end, it comes down to: Are you planning and controlling? Or are you iterating and co-creating? If you’re doing the former, you are probably on a path to death. If you’re doing the latter, you have the capacity to manage at the pace of change.
