Are you addicted to work? Take the test to find out

By its very nature, balancing tends to be kinda tough, so it’s perhaps no surprise that achieving work life balance is so challenging for so many of us. I mean it’s something that I’ve discussed on here many times, and the dichotomy is clear.

Crowdsourcing city guides

You might think that the crowd and travel guides are quite old bedfellows. After all, sites like TripAdvisor have been harvesting the opinions of travelers for years now about the places they’ve been and the hotels they stayed in.

Competition and its impact upon creativity

When it comes to social business, it’s rather easy to believe competition is a very bad thing. After all, it’s not easy collaborating with someone whilst at the same time competing with them. Such a scenario might prompt employees to begin hoarding information and looking out for themselves rather than the collective whole.

Is a social business born or made?

When working in the management industry a few years ago a frequent topic for debate would be whether managers/leaders are born or whether they can be made. Suffice to say, my employer at the time was heavily invested in them being made, although I wonder quite how honestly they really believed that.

Health Acceleration Challenge aims to spread innovation in healthcare

Science fiction author William Gibson famously opined that the future already exists, but that it is unevenly distributed. This notion that in any field there are pockets of excellence is something that was largely popularized by the work around positive deviance conducted by Richard Pascale.

Counting Chickens: Undone Work in Scrum

By definition, any work that has not been completed to the satisfaction of the DoD remains undone. Taking work off a Product Backlog just because it is on a Sprint Backlog is therefore precocious and a mistake.

Charities, celebrity endorsements and slacktavism

I’ve written a number of times about charitable use of social media, and just how effective it is in raising awareness of a particular campaign or issue. The general gist of the research is that whilst social networks, such as Facebook, can be effective, it’s generally only because of their sheer size. Other mediums offer much better return for your buck.

Did Social Media Kill the Marketing Funnel?

One central component of marketing is the idea of "the funnel." You can look at it in different ways, but essentially it teaches you how customers move through their interactions with a brand: typically it's something like awareness, interest, evaluation, trial, adoption/conversion, and advocacy.
