Skills required in the coming professional environment are changing. What in the past adde value, tomorrow could be a burden. New concepts like crowdsourcing, hybrid workforce and holacratic organizations will start to gain traction and be among us before we even notice.
Large links harvest this month, both in number and in topics. More than the last ones. One of the largest, in fact. And I honestly have no clue on the reason. A good number of the links send us to texts worth a slow and deep reading. Some of these texts are worth an individual post with a deeper analysis, but I’m not sure to have the time to write them: These are the links: Your Company Doesn’t Need a Digital Strategy Technology doesn’t provide value to a business.

…Or when the customer is not always right. There is a legend that Henry Ford said that if he’d asked his customers what they wanted, they’d have said a faster horse. Something that goes against the fashion of “listening” and using Internet and specifically social media as massive focus groups. And even though it seems to be that there is no evidence that Ford said those words there are other people that say loud and clear that “maybe” there is no need to listen to customers that much and we’d rather focus in our own…read more
