David Hain's curator insight, October 21, 2013 12:17 PM

"At P&G, Lafley opened up everything. He wanted his leaders to be more collaborative, and just as importantly, he wanted his employees to be open. As a results, magic happened. He branded this open architecture “Connect and Develop” or “C&D.” The framework reached across all employees, regardless of title, and it drove not only revenue and profitability, but also employee engagement."


Given that the published engagement figures have rarely moved over the last 10 years, we need more people to investigate how to be flat army commanders!

Trevor Hudson's insight:

Great opportunity to test the impact of yoga and similar complementary therapies and exercise designed to promote holistic wellness. There may be some bias that this article is based on a health insurer but equally their reputation is on line if the study is bunk!

Driven by data: moneyball recruitment takes away the guesswork | Intelligent Performance | Scoop.it
Some may find the concept of reducing people to an algorithm difficult to swallow, but a new way of analysing employee data could be about to transform the basis on which we hire and promote.
Trevor Hudson's insight:

Here we learn that users of Chrome and Firefox are probabaly smarter than IE users. And the evidence suggests they also make better employees. Such is the power of 'moneyball' recruitment - go data!!!

The more that teachers develop students to think and be meta-cognitive the more they can become independent learners who drive their own learning.
