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.
"It's the Spanish painter and inventor of Cubism to which new Apple employees today pay design homage," Snow notes, referencing the computer giant's internal training program. So what can the master painter teach you about creativity? Snow lays out several lessons, including:
After a long wait, we finally have the future of Android. It was first unveiled as “Android L” in June 2014 before being officially named Lollipop (I was hoping for Licorice but oh well). There are some small changes and some big changes with some entirely new inclusions as well that make Lollipopmore than just a bug fix update; it’s a proper overhaul of the entire operating system. Let’s dive in!
We’ve seen a number of great keyboards for iOS emerge after Apple finally added support for third-party keyboards in iOS 8.
You can get everything from the ever-popular SwiftKey to GIF keyboards or even an auto correcting emoji keyboard. Crimson, however, brings a unique way of typing to the iPhone that builds on the familiar iOS keyboard and improves on it.
Two months ago, we told you that Adobe and Google were hard at work bringing Photoshop to the browser. Essentially, this version would run off of a server, allowing you to use as weak of a machine as you like, since the program isn’t relying at all on your computer’s processing power.
Microsoft hopes to put the kibosh on that with Microsoft Sway, its new presentation app.
Sway lets you drag and drop photos, videos, files from your computer, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or cloud storage. It works via a web browser or an app for your phone, and the presentation is stored on the web.
Social media was not a part of the business landscape when most boomers and Gen Xers hit their stride. But today, regardless of role, industry or seniority, being social media savvy is a major advantage for both personal branding and for doing your job better.
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.
Kuinka mobiilikuvaus ja visuaalisempi viestintä auttavat menestymään verkossa? Sosiaalisessa mediassa hyvä kuva on paras keino erottua päivitysvirrasta.
Tiivistetysti haluamme nähdä kuvia, joissa on tarinaa ja tunnetta. Arkikuvakin toimii somessa hyvin, jos siihen liittyy napakka tarina tai nokkela 140 merkin kiteytys. Kuva jää elämään etenkin silloin, kun se on osa isompaa kokonaisuutta. Päivityksestä toiseen tunnistettava tyyli, mieleen jäävä visuaalinen linja ja kuvakerronta ovat tapoja erottua verkossa meitä ympäröivästä visuaalisesta metelistä. Ylipäätään isot ideat kantavat.
We love the Web. Seriously, we do. But sometimes, achieving what you want is a little harder and takes a little longer than you’d really want. It’s for that reason that we’ve put together a list of 27 of the most useful extensions for Google’s Chrome browser.
Working with my clients on their personal branding, I’ve noticed one common misconception. Too many executives believe their real-world personal branding activities are unrelated to the virtual world of digital branding. This mentality is not only extremely inefficient; it can also lead to mixed messages about your brand. To maximize the value of your personal branding efforts, your real-world activities should be synced with your social media actions. This creates powerful synergies and can amplify your message for an audience of millions.
Following up on my post around the 7 Principles of The Future Employee, I wanted to share another concept which is the 10 Principles of The Future Manager.
