Reawakening Idealism

Reawakening Idealism | organisational development | Scoop.it

In current times we need idealists to steward the conversation about the society we want to live in rather than leaving it up to greedy lobbyists, opportunistic politicians and reductionistic fortune tellers to set the direction.

The Lost Art of Thinking in Large Organizations

The Lost Art of Thinking in Large Organizations | organisational development | Scoop.it

Many executives in big companies attained their positions by excelling at getting things done. Unfortunately, a bias for doing rather than thinking can leave these executives ill-equipped for their new roles.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, August 26, 7:26 AM

A company becomes big by finding a successful business model — and then scaling it massively. This necessitates building a finely tuned system with highly standardized processes. To get promoted in such an environment requires an almost singular focus on execution. In other words, it requires action more than thinking. However, once executives are promoted to a senior level, these new business leaders must be able to think strategically. Ironically, the very skills in execution that led to their promotions often make these executives ill-equipped for their new roles, since their strategy thinking muscles have withered from disuse.

Chief Culture Officer Buys Success

Today, the one constant you can anticipate in business is change. Need proof? Just look around. Companies can rise and fall in under twelve months.
Katherine Prewitt's insight:

Aptly highlighting the need for organisations to leverage all human resources in order to adapt and innovate ('tipping point'), and for a explicit mandate & leading role (incl. Exec suite legitimacy) to understand the culture within the company and federate energy around innovation.

“Smashing up” e-learning methods with Twitter and multi-device learning

“Smashing up” e-learning methods with Twitter and multi-device learning | organisational development | Scoop.it

Nigel Paine, a thought leader in the fields of leadership, learning and technology and former head of people development at the BBC, reflects on “smashing up” old e-learning models to pull together chat rooms, Twitter, and uniquely interactive desktops for learners.

Katherine Prewitt's insight:

How corporate learning methods are evolving & how the concept of 'organizational development' is taking a back seat to 'innovation', 'customer sensitivity',' better logistics', 'operational excellence'  et al to help leaders transform the organisation into something more agile and innovative... (the transcript is perhaps more interesting to read than the video to watch).

How Google Proved Management Matters

David A. Garvin, professor at Harvard Business School, describes how Google used its own data to persuade skeptics. 
Katherine Prewitt's insight:

On how Google is employing engineer language and codes to move a highly skilled workforce, which doesn't value management, toward to a best practice managerial culture.  This with Project Oxygen a multiyear "research initiative". Fasincating.

The power of storytelling for change -- an article that matter-of-factly touches upon the notions of archetypes, collective consciousness, and "subconscious archetypal cultural energy" within companies to demystify why a well-crafted story from upper management can move hearts and minds of employees, and enable change.

The key findings from the survey are:


  • According to 78% of respondents, achieving digital transformation will become critical to their organizations within the next two years.
  • However, 63% said the pace of technology change in their organization is too slow.
  • The most frequently cited obstacle to digital transformation was “lack of urgency.”
  • Only 38% of respondents said that digital transformation was a permanent fixture on their CEO’s agenda.
  • Where CEOs have shared their vision for digital transformation, 93% of employees feel that it is the right thing for the organization. But, a mere 36% of CEOs have shared such a vision.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, November 21, 2013 4:54 AM

Interesting recent study report by MIT SMR and Capgemini on the adoption and usage of new technologies. The study suggests that there are four levels of Digital Maturity:

Digirati (15%), Fashionistas (6%), Conservatives (14%) and Beginners (65%)

 

The researchers found that "Digirati - the best companies at managing digital technology - get the best financial results", but that "most companies lack experience with emerging digital technologies."
