Town Slowly deformed by Plate Tectonics

Town Slowly deformed by Plate Tectonics | Bangalore Heritage Watch | Scoop.it

"The signs that something’s wrong are not immediately obvious, but, once you see them, it’s hard to tune them out. Curbs at nearly the exact same spot on opposite sides of the street are popped out of alignment. Houses too young to show this kind of wear stand oddly warped, torqued out of sync with their own foundations, their once-strong frames off-kilter. This is Hollister, California, a town being broken in two slowly, relentlessly, and in real time by an effect known as 'fault creep.' A slow, surreal tide of deformation has appeared throughout the city."

Stakeholder Mapping for Collaboration

Stakeholder Mapping for Collaboration | Bangalore Heritage Watch | Scoop.it

Collaboration is an important factor for successful innovation and change. Indeed, collaboration is an imperative for most organizations today, including any organization undergoing change. Innovation requires collaboration between individuals, as well as systemic forms of collaboration that span silos, networks and surprising connections. And yet collaboration cannot be mandated. Collaboration just doesn’t work like that.

#Collaboration #Innovation circle.

Claude Emond's curator insight, July 14, 2014 9:20 AM

Most stakeholder «management» tools and techniques are based on measuring (whatever it means) Power and Influence. This is mostly done without open discussion with the stakeholders and highly manipulative in its intent. It does not either consider meta game and alliance among unlikely collaborators. This model is thus a pace towards a better way, something that «engage» stakeholders instead of «managing/trying to manipulate» them.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 15, 2014 1:36 PM

Collaboration is an organizational necessity; effective organizations excel at and continuously strive to improve it

Lindley Amarantos's curator insight, September 5, 2014 9:17 AM

this can explain why it is important to NOT always rely on technology. It is good to keep your brain active and the spatial awareness that comes with reading a map is invaluable

Practiquem-ho a classe doncs!

Richard Thomas's curator insight, July 30, 2015 10:52 PM

Despite the gendered overtones of the article (that it's important for men to learn to read a map), this is some good advice, regardless of gender.  The vocabulary and concepts of maps can strengthen spatial cognition and geography awareness.  While GPS technology can help us in a pinch, relying primarily on a system that does not engage our navigation skills will weaken our ability to perform these functions.  While it intuitively makes sense, that the 'mental muscles' would atrophy when not used, it is a reminder that an overuse of geospatial technologies can be intellectually counterproductive.  So break out a trusty ol' map, but more importantly, be a part of the spatial decision-making process.
