Data Ethics: Renegotiating Human Agency in Industry Data Innovation

In the wake of a rapid technological development in which digitally collected, stored and procesed data have become defining factors in society, human and ethical dilemmas emerge. This study explores a social process that is taking place to negotiate global standards, roles, rights and responsibilities to create a new trust system to manage the risks of a data-saturated environment with an emphasis on ethics, human empowerment and agency.

Do You Have A “Leaver” Data Problem?

Do You Have A “Leaver” Data Problem? | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it
Everyone leaves the company eventually. Better opportunities, reduction in workforce actions, termination, or your manager has the IQ of un-popped popcorn…, no matter the reason, everyone eventually leaves. In the UK, these people are referred to as “leavers.” In the U.S. they’re called departing employees or ex-employees, and depending on the circumstances, more colorful names.…
RuthEastham's insight:
Ensure you have an exit process that ensures the company knows where all employee data is before they leave, and, migrate all of that ex-employee data to a central repository for long term management.

Be useful.Failure comes in threes. Let the client see the clients. Keep it short and punchy. Two formats – 800-word articles (63%) and 300-500-word blog posts (57%) – are preferred more than any other.It’s complicated. Facebook, the professional network? Monday lunchtimes matter. The C-suite ignore most of what you write. Readers want to be creators too.

How to establish a defensible deletion policy

How to establish a defensible deletion policy | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

Control risk and manage expenses associated with employee documents and email. Not only can you defensibly delete your legacy data, but you also should do so as a responsible member of your organization.

RuthEastham's insight:
Implementing a defensible deletion methodology not only manages long term risks and liabilities related to enterprise data assets; it also saves time and expense to support ongoing litigation and e-discovery efforts and reduces data center budget spent on storing and managing data that is no longer useful.

RuthEastham's insight:

Some of us worry about personal health records being “made open”. Some confuse commercial and personal data, or mix up “big data” with “open data”. 

Data exists on a spectrum

The spectrum ranges from closed to shared to open.

To Get More Creative, Become Less Productive

To Get More Creative, Become Less Productive | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

There is a fundamental tension between productivity and creativity, and managers won’t get more of the latter until they recognize it.

Productive people move through the tasks they have to accomplish in a systematic way. They make steady and measurable progress toward their goals. They make effective and efficient use of their time.

Creativity… doesn’t.

Creativity needs time and space to grow. Although we can systematically engage in activities that are related to creativity, it is hard to systematize creativity itself. In particular, creativity is fundamentally about knowledge. Nearly all creative ideas involve people finding new uses for existing knowledge – some novel configuration of old insights. James Dyson developed his vacuum by drawing a parallel to sawmills. Fiona Fairhurst designed a faster swimsuit by understanding shark skin. George de Mestral invented Velcro by understanding cockleburs.

That means people need to have the time to learn things that are not obviously relevant to their jobs, so that they will have a broad and deep knowledge base to draw from when they need to be creative.

Moreover, creative enterprises rarely involve steady and measurable progress. Instead, being creative involves trying lots of different possibilities, struggling down several blind alleys before finding the right solution.
