This is much inline with my readings on the zero marginal cost society. Being able to print your own car may not be practical of cost effective today but once it is and car 3D models are available free or low charge on the web, where will the car industry go? I understand why Tesla is building huge battery manufacturing plant as they may have seen that providing key components may be the future of the car industry?

Your employees are your brand

In this talk, Mark Burgess brings to our attention how employees, through social media, are changing how companies market to, and engage with, customers and prospects. With the transparency and opportunity for personal connections that social media offers, pushing fabricated, unauthentic sales pitches doesn't work anymore. Instead, we are witnessing the rise of the social employee who creates a win/win proposition by leveraging their personal brands to build trust and increase the digital "surface area" of the brands for which they work. The result is nothing short of a revolution.

"A social employee... is engaged... they believe in the values they work for... employees are the brand of the company..."

Marius Monen's curator insight, July 17, 2014 7:57 AM

Inspiring talk that shows how to achieve synergy between the personal brand of the "social employee" and the corporate brand. This coincides with another trend I see, which is that individuals see themselves less and less as  (lifte time) employees, and more and more as autonomous professionals with a strong personal brand, embedded in a lasting professional community.  In that perspective the employer and his corporate brand are only temporarily relevant to the professional "social employee": the professional will contribute to it with his own personal brand, but the employer and the corporate brand are only passers-by, only relevant for the time that the professional wants to work for the employer.

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, August 7, 2014 12:29 PM

Businesses really need to understand this point and shout it from the mountain tops.  Employees are your brand! Period!  You can have the best product but if your employees make it difficult to purchase or get support, it won't sell, unless it is so unique that there is no competition.  My only comment there is just wait a few minutes!

(From the article): Reading can also make you more effective in leading others. Reading increases verbal intelligence (PDF), making a leader a more adept and articulate communicator. Reading novels can improve empathy and understanding of social cues, allowing a leader to better work with and understand others — traits that author Anne Kreamer persuasively linked to increased organizational effectiveness, and to pay raises and promotions for the leaders who possessed these qualities. And any business person understands that heightened emotional intelligence will improve his or her leadership and management ability.

How to Help an Underperformer

How to Help an Underperformer | Visual Science | Scoop.it

Don’t ignore the problem


Too often these issues go unaddressed.  “Most performance problems aren’t dealt with directly,” says Weintraub. “More often, instead of taking action, the manager will transfer the person somewhere else or let him stay put without doing anything.” This is the wrong approach. Never allow underperformance to fester on your team. It’s rare that these situations resolve themselves. It’ll just get worse. You’ll become more and more irritated and that’s going to show and make the person uncomfortable,” says Manzoni. If you have an issue, take steps toward solving it as soon as possible.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 24, 2014 12:36 PM

The assumption often is that poor performance is  result of some problem with the performer, but it would be wise to examine the circumstances closely because is it a common bias for people to attribute others failures to them and de-emphasize the situation factors that may be contributing.   Compounding this, we as managers often are biased in seeing our own success as the result of our efforts and failures as a result of happenstance and not our shortcomings— making it still harder for us to see how we might contribute to others' poor performance. 

Tony Phillips's curator insight, June 24, 2014 9:25 PM

A great article worth practical ways to improve performance. ALL managers should be coached to do this type of thing.

1. Clarify your purpose

2. Identify your voice

4. Build an active online presence

5. Be a mentor.

The Emerging Science of Computational Anthropology

The Emerging Science of Computational Anthropology | Visual Science | Scoop.it

The increasing availability of big data from mobile phones and location-based apps has triggered a revolution in the understanding of human mobility patterns. This data shows the ebb and flow of the daily commute in and out of cities, the pattern of travel around the world and even how disease can spread through cities via their transport systems.

 

So there is considerable interest in looking more closely at human mobility patterns to see just how well it can be predicted and how these predictions might be used in everything from disease control and city planning to traffic forecasting and location-based advertising.

Today we get an insight into the kind of detailed that is possible thanks to the work of Zimo Yang at Microsoft research in Beijing and a few pals. These guys start with the hypothesis that people who live in a city have a pattern of mobility that is significantly different from those who are merely visiting. By dividing travellers into locals and non-locals, their ability to predict where people are likely to visit dramatically improves.

luiy's curator insight, June 10, 2014 1:49 PM

The question that Zimo and co want to answer is the following: given a particular user and their current location, where are they most likely to visit in the near future? In practice, that means analysing the user’s data, such as their hometown and the locations recently visited, and coming up with a list of other locations that they are likely to visit based on the type of people who visited these locations in the past.

Zimo and co used their training dataset to learn the mobility pattern of locals and non-locals and the popularity of the locations they visited. The team then applied this to the test dataset to see whether their algorithm was able to predict where locals and non-locals were likely to visit.

 

They found that their best results came from analysing the pattern of behaviour of a particular individual and estimating the extent to which this person behaves like a local. That produced a weighting called the indigenization coefficient that the researchers could then use to determine the mobility patterns this person was likely to follow in future.
