Transformation starts with agile leadership | McKinsey

Transformation starts with agile leadership | McKinsey | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Agile organizations require a fundamentally different kind of leadership. Recent research confirms that leadership and how leadership shapes culture are the biggest barriers to—and the biggest enablers of—successful agile transformations....

 

...Leaders need three new sets of capabilities for agile transformations. First, they must transform themselves to evolve new personal mind-sets and behaviors. Second, they need to transform their teams to work in new ways. Third, it’s essential to build the capabilities to transform the organization by building agility into the design and culture of the whole enterprise.

To fully transform yourself, several shifts will be necessary—and leaders will need to make these changes in a disciplined way.

There is an increasing, and welcome, trend to see organisations as living systems that respond dynamically to change rather than moving linearly from state A to state B. Critical to making this move successfully is leadership oprating in a fundamentally different way. Useful article here on developing mind sets and processes that help to make the shifts meaningful.

The main reason, why a lot of business owners are not as productive as they should be, is that they don't plan to be productive. A daily plan that keeps you on task, is a sure fire way. to increase your personal productivity. This article, outlines five steps to follow, to create your own weekly productivity plan.

CCM Consultancy's curator insight, October 8, 1:44 AM

A to-do list is simply that – a list. It’s an unorganized ledger of tasks that need to be completed at some point, by someone. While they codify objectives to execute, they do little else. In contrast, a plan is a strategy for execution. It comprises all the resources – including your own efforts and tasks – to tactically achieve an objective.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 19, 4:21 PM

My colleague Peter de Jager of Technobility pointed me to one of his webinars on the 7 core questions to ask/answer in any change effort, and I think it's right on.

 

As someone who used to be in change management, the 7 questions really work. What is even more important to recognize is that these questions generate stories. And when it comes to change management of any time or size, blasting out information doesn't work. But getting people engaged in listening to and sharing stories does work.

 

As a leader, if you want to smooth out the rocky road of change, then this video is a great place to start.

Here is a robust interview with David Ulrich, the author ofThe Why of Work: How Great Leaders Build Abundant Organizations That Win who shares specific steps about how leaders can both think better about their work, increase purpose and meaning for employees, and operate from a place of abundance.

 

Storytelling is a part of this, as you will read. Ulrich used the anecdote of the bricklayer/cathedral builder, which is no overused. But the point remains valid.

The cornerstones of large-scale technology transformation

The cornerstones of large-scale technology transformation | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

Even companies that devise sound strategies are likely to encounter two formidable obstacles to using advanced technologies at a transformative scale. The first challenge is the sheer number and breadth of technology solutions required to truly transform an enterprise, often in the hundreds. The second one might be called the “last-mile” challenge: redesigning a company’s processes to capture the value of new technologies, in line with their strategic goals. Both sound technical, but they play out far from the traditional IT organization and create headaches for the business leaders who will need to guide their people toward new patterns of thinking and operating.

A playbook for overcoming these challenges is starting to emerge across industries. In this article, we’ll explore five cornerstone practices underpinning the progress of successful companies:

Develop technology road maps that strategically focus investments needed to reinvent their legacy businesses and create new digital ones.
Train managers to recognize new opportunities and build in-house capabilities to deliver technologies.
Establish a modern technology environment to support rapid development of new solutions.
Overhaul data strategy and governance to ensure data are reliable, accessible, and continuously enriched to make them more valuable.
Focus relentlessly on capturing the strategic value from technology by driving rapid changes in the operating model.

Why the Future of Work is Learning

Why the Future of Work is Learning | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

On the occasion of our upcoming Future of Work Tour, we sat down with Heather McGowan – one of the key experts of the tour – to talk about how technology and globalization are reshaping how we live and work. It quickly became clear that the issue of identity is foremost on Heather’s mind. She elaborated: “Higher education went from being a rare pursuit of creating new knowledge to a factory pipeline aimed at creating a deployable and skilled workforce. Then, from the late ’60s to early ’90s, we started on a pathway of creating a fixed identity. We asked people to choose an occupation and a future self, and to study and work hard to realize that identity. We still ask children what they want to be when they grow up. We ask university students to pick their major before they have taken their first course. Yet more than half the work we’ll be doing in future doesn’t yet exist and the other half of those work tasks may become automated.

Three considerations for Modern Training Design

Three considerations for Modern Training Design | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

With all of the options available to accommodate individual learning objectives, many practitioners assume, “Oh! I’m only creating microlearning. I don’t need ADDIE or SAM or any complicated framework.”

However, when thinking about flipping your classroom to a more modern program, our team offers one critical reminder: instructional design becomes more important than ever. Standalone courses do not exist anymore, and neither do standalone training resources. Everything connects to everything else, making thoughtful design a critical piece of your blended learning puzzle.

During her recent ATD Webcast Blended Learning: A Five-Dimensional Puzzle, Jennifer Hofmann shared the factors she considers when embarking on a new design project. Whether you design, facilitate, or manage training programs, these three elements provide a foundation for understanding modern blended learning.

Why Gender Stereotypes Are So Hard to Fight at Work

Why Gender Stereotypes Are So Hard to Fight at Work | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
Changing people’s conscious and unconscious beliefs about women is hard, and programs to do so have limited impact. Research on diversity and unconscious-bias trainings also bear this out: Trainings are mostly ineffective at changing behavior and can even backfire, especially when trainings are mandatory and participants resent being sent to the course. Diversity trainings may also fail if they create the illusion that the organization has now fixed its diversity problems.

How investing in AI is about investing in People, not just Technology

How investing in AI is about investing in People, not just Technology | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it

How is your organization preparing for artificial intelligence (AI)? Ask this question of businesses investing in this field today, and the answer almost always comes down to "data"-- with leaders talking about "data preparations" or "data science talent acquisition."

While there would be no AI without data, enterprises that fail to ready the other side of the equation-- people-- don’t just stunt their capacity for good AI, they risk sunk investment and jeopardize employee trust, brand backlash or worse.
