It’s been our job (and still is our job) to keep abreast of all of the productivity-type apps out there. As a result — and as a bit of a refresher — we’ve put together what we’re calling The Lifehack Big List to publish on a semi-regular basis when we want to provide you with an all-in-one resource for you to review at your leisure.
The LinkedIn Relationship tab is a convenient tool that shows you how you’re connected to someone. You can add information to remind yourself of important details about your relationship or set reminders for future interaction
I recently came across a provocative postby Peter Reinhardt where he illustrates numerous examples of companies that are creating software layers to manage people in industries that were traditionally purely based on human services. Reinhardt lists popular examples such as Uber and Lyft who created software layers in the taxi industry, 99designs in the visual design industry and Homejoy in the cleaning industry. These companies are now employing armies of human workers, optimizing their output, productivity and quality while driving prices down – all without managers to direct those who are performing the jobs. “Management” is almost completely done by machines and algorithms.
Ennen portfoliota tarvittiin lähinnä vain luovilla aloilla. Tulevaisuudessa portfolio tai blogi voi olla työnsaannin edellytys lähes kaikessa asiantuntijatyössä. Osaaminen pitää lyödä tiskiin tai muuten kukaan ei usko, että sellaista on olemassa. Läpinäkyvyys toimii, mystinen sumuverho ei niinkään
The year 2015 will see the advent of what I call “the consumerization of HR,” where employees expect an “intelligent mobile user experience” to guide their access to HR resources. Employees will increasingly expect their employer to have the same user experience as when they reserve a taxi on Uber or Lyft, pay their bills on the Bank of America mobile app, or order food on Seamless or GrubHub. The mobile interface will be the employee’s primary conduit to a host of personal and business applications;
If Adobe's experiment works, it could lead the way for the transformation of other sectors of the economy. The big story here is that Adobe is in a unique position to have a customer base in the growing millions of professionals who are both the creators and consumers of digital goods and services. By being able to act on both the supply and demand sides of this audience, Wadhwani thinks the company can build “the creative version of the sharing economy.”Before we all start singing “Kumbaya,” let’s confront the hard facts. Digital distribution of content has created massive new markets, but also pushed the unit price of products and services low—and this trend will continue.
The technologies of the past, by replacing human muscle, increased the value of human effort – and in the process drove rapid economic progress. Those of the future, by substituting for man’s senses and brain, will accelerate that process – but at the risk of creating millions of citizens who are simply unable to contribute economically, and with greater damage to an already declining middle class.
Tapa, jolla organisoimme työn ei ole muuttunut yli sataan vuoteen, vaikka maailma ympärillä on muuttunut harppauksin. Onkin selviä merkkejä, että teollisuusyhteiskunnan hierarkkiset, jäykät ja muurien ympäröimät organisaatiot eivät enää pärjää kilpailussa. Niiden ohi kirittää vauhdilla uusia verkostomaisella ja avoimella tavalla toimivia yrityksiä, jotka oppivat ja innovoivat ketterämmin.

How would you like to live in an economy where robots do everything that can be predictably programmed in advance, and almost all profits go to the robots' owners?
Meanwhile, human beings do the work that's unpredictable - odd jobs, on-call projects, fetching and fixing, driving and delivering, tiny tasks needed at any and all hours - and patch together barely enough to live on.
Brace yourself. This is the economy we're now barreling toward.

Verkko muuttuu kiivaasti ja jo vuodessa ehtii tapahtua paljon. Mobiilikäyttäjien räjähdysmäinen kasvu, sosiaalisen median leviäminen verkon joka sopukkaan ja käyttökokemuksen korostuminen ovat suuria pohjavirtoja, jotka heijastuvat verkkosuunnitteluun. Jos sivusto on suunniteltu 3-5 vuotta sitten eikä sitä päivitetä säännöllisesti, se ei todennäköisesti ole enää kilpailukykyinen.
Verkkosivustolla on nykyisin merkitystä enemmän kuin koskaan, sillä ostopäätös tehdään yhä useammin verkossa. Mitä sinun siis tulisi tietää verkon kehityksestä? Mitkä ovat verkkosuunnittelun trendit 2015?
The archaic Industrial Age system employed by most companies today would have you believe that a single manager is better at making decisions than the ten people who work under them. But in the emerging work world of the Participation Age, a company believes that the ten people most affected by the decision will be better at making it.
During the past few decades we have spent a lot of time talking about knowledge workers and knowledge work. However today knowledge is nothing more than a commodity and to be the smartest guy in the room all you need access to is a smartphone. This is especially true when we consider that more “smart assistants” such as the Amazon Echo, Siri, Cortana, and IBM’s Watson enter our professional and personal lives.
