The Future of Work is Already Here - Seven powerful models for work in the connected, collaborative, creative, Big Data economy

The Future of Work is Already Here - Seven powerful models for work in the connected, collaborative, creative, Big Data economy | The Social Web | Scoop.it

There is a lingering notion in the world of business and beyond that organizations are things with four walls, that employees are people who report to work inside them every day for years on end, that work is a matter of executing on defined “KPIs,” and that success is a product of climbing ladders and exerting an ever-greater span of control. But the fact is, we’re in the midst of a great reshuffling of the talent deck.

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Stephen Dale's insight:

Organizations and leaders today must focus on unleashing human capacity—designing environments and systems for work that inspire individuals to contribute their full imagination, initiative, and passion every day—and on aggregating human capability—leveraging new social, mobile, and digital technologies to activate, enlist, and organize talent across boundaries.

 

The Management Innovation eXchange (MIX) launched the Unlimited Human Potential M-Prize to unearth the most progressive practices and boldest ideas around those two challenges. They recently announce the winners of the M-Prize, selected from over one hundred entries from every kind of organization and every corner of the world.

Meet the winners (in alphabetical order):

OU Digital Tools: Inoreader: Remix Your Own RSS Feed ... with social network content

"The ability to remix RSS is very cool (remember YahooPipes?), but Inoreader takes that even farther because it also harvests non-RSS content from social network feeds at Twitter, Google+, and Facebook, rendering them as RSS. It's magic: you can recombine any of the content in Inoreader to send back out as an RSS stream, including social network content that is normally not available as RSS. Want an RSS feed of your Twitter? Facebook? Google+? Easy-peasy: you just subscribe to your feed with Inoreader, and then send it back out again as RSS."

Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, February 9, 7:21 PM

This is Chapter 1 from the soon-to-be released book, Putting Stories To Work, written by my colleague Shawn Callahan. 


There are a number of books on the subject of storytelling for leaders, but few that provide both theory and practice.  Shawn's book is  the exception.  It is replete with scientific evidence as well as practical advice on why and how oral storytelling is the best tool for motivating, inspiring and influencing others. Whether you are leading a large company, managing a small team, or you are in sales of any kind, if your success depends on your skills as a communicator, this is a "must read." 


The book will be available soon both in hardback and ebook form.  In the meantime you can get a peek under the tent of what I'm certain will become the seminal work on oral storytelling for business.  


This article was curated by Jim Signorelli, President and Founder of Story-Lab, conducting storytelling for business workshops throughout the U.S.

When we decided that the internet needed to be funded with our eyeballs and not money, when we gave every person a camera told them they were gifted, when we made publishing easier, when we invited everyone to participate, when every brand thought it had a story to tell, we created the greatest depository of absolute crap the world has ever known, the internet in 2016."

What Are the Required Skills for Today's Digital Workforce? | The Social Web | Scoop.it

Are there new ways to think about our digital workplace skills that allows us to take our thinking up to a new plane, the next meta-level of thinking and working where we have much higher leverage, can manage change that is an order of magnitude or greater in volume than today, work in fundamentally better and smarter new ways — and perhaps even work a bit less — yet produce much more value?

Key points: "Collaboration is becoming the most important strategic activity in organizations, even becoming a vital top-level corporate strategy and major fast-growth new business model as well. Workers today must be experts in digital collaboration techniques, know all the relevant platforms, and maintain an understanding of the current collaborative “channel catalog” at all strategic levels."

It’s become pretty clear that one of two things is going to happen in the future workplace: The world will continue to pull ahead of the average workplace, as our internal rates of change are greatly exceeded by the marketplace. We will steadily become irrelevant and ineffective, eventually replaced by digital startups and better-adjusted competitors. Or we’ll find entirely new ways of improving our capabilities in a way that allows us to maintain some kind of parity with progress in the world.

You should identify topics that resonate with your followers and share content that will help your audience relate to your business. While content creation is a more time-intensive process, content curation need not be so.

The stuff from real people, not robot accounts. The signal to noise ratio seems to be getting ever smaller, i.e. the noise is winning, Social media was always meant to be a human and personalised experience before the algorithms and bots took it over. OK rant over.

Has our faith in data been misplaced?

Stephen Dale's insight:

It’s relatively easy to collect information, aggregate it and apply standard algorithms to derive insights, but much harder to understand where the data comes from, what type of analysis is being applied and what types of error are involved.  Insights, even when powered by impressive technology, never come easy.  To get full value from data, you must understand it. 

 

Data leads to information, and information without context can lead us down may false avenues. The need for critical thinking is essential when presented with "evidence" manufactured from algorithms we don't understand. Look out for:  


Harvard economists published a working paper which warned that US debt was approaching a critical level. As it turned out, they had made a simple Excel error.
