Die organisationale Transformation: unumgänglich, um zukunftssicher zu werden
18.10.2019
Die meisten Unternehmen haben inzwischen mit New-Work-Initiativen begonnen, Maßnahmen zunehmender Selbstorganisation im Einsatz und agile Tools in Gebrauch. Doch schon zeigt sich Ernüchterung. Viele Initiativen erfüllen nicht die Erwartungen, die man in sie gesetzt hat. Die große Frage: Warum? Manche reden bereits ein Scheitern von New Work herbei, um erleichtert zu den "gängigen" Methoden von früher zurückkehren zu können. Doch das ist von Allem der größte Fehler. Denn mit alten "Waffen" kann man keine neuen "Kriege" gewinnen. Und der Rückfall ins Gestern ...
 
So macht's: Bosch
18.10.2019
Wir begrüßen Monika Struzek von Bosch. Sei doch bitte so nett und stell Dich kurz unseren Lesern vor. Monika: Ich habe Anglistik, Politikwissenschaften und Medien- und Kommunikationsmanagement studiert und bin seit 2016 Chief Community Manager für den IT-Bereich bei Bosch.

The unique selling point of Enterprise Social Networks
18.10.2019
"This will go viral!" Have you ever heard this sentence before? You say it when you hope for a social media contribution to spread rapidly and thus achieve a high network reach in a short time. But how does it work? Social networks enable every participant to publish content. So far, so good. But if everyone can now publish content, how can we recognize which from these many contributions has more relevance than others? Virality separates the wheat from the chaff Well, (good) social networks make it very easy for participants to recommend (*like*) or ...
 
5 Mindsets That Will Boost Your Organizational Culture
18.10.2019
Your organizational mindset makes or breaks success. Develop a good one, and it will create a positive impact across the organization. What your employees think is what your organization becomes. Your organizational mindset, more than anything else, determines business success. A mindset is a frame of mind. The sum of your team's beliefs and thoughts shape the organizational culture. What people think about mistakes, conflict or leadership predetermines their behavior. Harmful mindsets stand between where you are and where you want to be. Upgrading the ...
 
Why Companies Do "Innovation Theater" Instead of Actual Innovation
18.10.2019
The type of disruption most companies and government agencies are facing right now is a once-in-every-few-centuries event. Disruption today is more than just changes in technology, or channel, or competitors -- it's all of them, all at once. And these forces are completely reshaping both commerce and defense. Today, as large organizations are facing continuous disruption, they've recognized that their existing strategy and organizational structures aren't nimble enough to access and mobilize the innovative talent and technology they need to meet these ...
 
Ihr wollt Innovation? - Dann bildet Communities!
17.10.2019
Employee Communities sind gleichermaßen Treiber und Ergebnis einer vernetzten Organisation. Manche sehen in ihnen DIE Organisationsform der Zukunft - Community beats Hierarchy! Dabei muss es meiner Ansicht nach gar nicht darum gehen, das eine durch das andere zu ersetzen. Fakt ist aber: In starren Hierarchien kann Vernetzung nur schwer funktionieren. Wenn Hierarchie, dann bitte dynamisch und rollenbasiert - dann klappt es auch mit dem Community Building! Was hat es mit Communities auf sich? Communities findet man in ganz unterschiedlichen Kontexten, ...
 
Neun "Lügen" über Arbeit
17.10.2019
Einige Glaubenssätze bestimmen HR und Führungsarbeit, als wären sie ewige Wahrheiten. Sind sie aber nicht, nur Annahmen. Die stimmen oder nicht. Ein neues Buch dekonstruiert neun solcher Glaubenssätze. Glaubenssätze mit Gesetzeskraft In der Arbeitswelt gibt es viele Annahmen, die quasi Gesetzeskraft haben: Menschen brauchen Ziele, sie wünschen sich ständiges Feedback und haben unterschiedliches Potential. Marcus Buckingham, der lange bei Gallup war und nun das ADP Research Institute leitet, nimmt sich mit Ashley Goodall, Senior Vice President Leadership ...
 
Die Angst vor der Un-/Abhängigkeit und worin Jürgen Klopp Vorreiter ist
17.10.2019
Den folgenden kurzen Beitrag verbreitete ich letzte Woche auf Linkedin. "Das Lustige und traurige zugleich. Wir wollen zusammenarbeiten - und haben verlernt zusammen zu arbeiten. Zusammen arbeiten heißt - sich zu unterstützen, - Hemmnisse aus dem Weg zu räumen, - gemeinsame Werte zu pflegen und zu verteidigen, - zusammen zu lernen, - zusammen zu feiern, - zusammen ein Ziel zu haben und es zu erreichen, - zusammen Erfolg zu haben. Es geht um die Basics und es geht um das Gesamtverständnis von Arbeit, Erfolg und Zukunft. Zusammenarbeit war gestern. Die ...
 
The Lively Disorder of Agile Organizations
17.10.2019
The biggest hurdle for companies undergoing an agile transformation is the perceived loss of control. At its core, agility means self-organization. The more decentralized decisions are made, the more flexibly the organization can react to new situations and the more adaptable it is as a result. So far, so good. But the more decentralized decisions are made, the messier things appear for the existing management and especially for the management in companies with a high proportion of engineers, as is often the case in Germany. However, this disorder is ...
 
The seven deadly sins of organisational transformation
17.10.2019
Pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, sloth, I've experienced them all this week. And that's just while trying to get my laptop rebuilt. In this article I'm going to cover seven sins/anti-patterns of organisational transformation observed at a variety of organisations. The hope is that companies on a transformation journey recognise the dynamics at work and avoid them completely or take corrective action before it is too late. In time I'll expand this out to cover positive patterns in the same manner as DevOps Topologies but ...
 
Fünf Schritte zum digitalen Arbeitsplatz
16.10.2019
Um den digitalen Arbeitsplatz mit Leben zu füllen, braucht die Unternehmenskommunikation Unterstützung. Wie diese aussehen kann, weiß unser Gastautor. Wenn der digitale Arbeitsplatz oder Modern Workplace in einer Organisation mit Leben gefüllt werden soll, braucht es die Unterstützung von (freiwilligen) Helfern. Die Unternehmenskommunikation alleine kann diese Mammutaufgabe nicht bewältigen. Immer mehr Unternehmen setzen daher auf Multiplikatoren, die andere Mitarbeitende dabei unterstützen, digitale Tools und Arbeitsweisen für sich zu entdecken und ...
 
Dem Big Data Hype ein wenig Erdung einverleiben
16.10.2019
Hypethemen der Wirtschaft, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) oder Unternehmens Core Data Warehousing (CDW), um nur zwei der nahen Vergangenheit zu nennen, werden zu Beginn ihrer Entstehung extrem hoch gejubelt. Erwartungen werden in sie gesetzt, die sie so meistens nicht erfüllen können, da diese zu hoch gesteckt sind. Diese Hypethemen haben auch häufig einen Mantel der Technologie um, weil wir Menschen sowieso sehr häufig in der Technik unser Heil suchen, wie im Rahmen der Digitalisierung unserer Gesellschaft, mit der Wirtschaft als Teil davon, schön ...
 
Change takes time and effort
16.10.2019
The idea that generalists and soft skills are needed in the modern workplace seems to be hitting the mainstream of HR, L&D, etc. I have written about these for the past decade or more, and I think it's necessary to clarify some of the discussion. 1. Wicked problems need neo-generalists Neo-generalists defy common understanding. They cross boundaries, and some break them. They see patterns before others do. They go against hundreds of years of cultural programming. I doubt this is what most employers in large organizations are looking for. But neo-generalists ...
 
How to Upgrade Your Mindset for Success
16.10.2019
Overcome the beliefs that limit your potential. Success and happiness are all about mindset. What you think you become. Your mindset doesn't just affect how you see the world. It shapes your responses and actions even if you don't realize it. Developing the right mindset is crucial to succeeding in anything. Here's how to upgrade yours. What is a mindset? Mindsets liberate or limit our potential Before you change your mindset... Right or Wrong? Victim versus Accountable? Comparing to others versus being your own standard? Scarcity versus Abundance? Stuck ...
 
Would You Survive a Merger with AI?
16.10.2019
The cost of brain enhancement may be your identity. The idea that humans should merge with AI is very much in the air these days. It is offered both as a way for humans to avoid being outmoded by AI in the workplace, and as a path to superintelligence and immortality. For instance, Elon Musk recently commented that humans can escape being outmoded by AI by "having some sort of merger of biological intelligence and machine intelligence."1 To this end, he's founded a company, Neuralink. One of its first aims is to develop "neural lace," an injectable mesh ...

The helix organization
15.10.2019
Separating people-leadership tasks from day-to-day business leadership can help organizations strike a better balance between centralization and decentralization, reduce complexity, and embrace agility. Separating people-leadership tasks from day-to-day business leadership can help organizations strike a better balance between centralization and decentralization, reduce complexity, and embrace agility. The CEO of a major global business, deeply frustrated, took time out recently as a large company-wide reorganization was stumbling toward its conclusion. ...
 
From training to learning
15.10.2019
While social learning may be one the currently hot new trends in the education and training fields, we have known for a while "why tried-and-true training methods don't work anymore", as discussed by Brigitte Jordan (1937-2016) in the mid-1990's while working at the Institute for Research on Learning. Here are the highlights -- From Training to Learning in the New Economy. Based on the idea that training consists of the transfer of authoritative knowledge from expert instructor to novice learner, it capitalized on the notion that knowledge can be packaged ...
 
3 Reasons It's So Hard to "Follow Your Passion"
15.10.2019
How many times have you been told to "follow your passion?" It's a message that appears in everything from graduation speeches to job ads. We even say it ourselves. When I surveyed a recent class of Columbia Business School MBA students, over 90% of them listed "pursuing their passion" as an important goal for their future jobs. But according to a recent Deloitte survey of 3,000 full-time U.S. workers, across job levels and industries, only 20% say they are truly passionate about their work. Research that I and others have conducted show that many--if ...
 
At Work, Expertise Is Falling Out of Favor
15.10.2019
These days, it seems, just about all organizations are asking their employees to do more with less. Is that actually a good idea? [...] Minimal manning--and with it, the replacement of specialized workers with problem-solving generalists--isn't a particularly nautical concept. Indeed, it will sound familiar to anyone in an organization who's been asked to "do more with less"--which, these days, seems to be just about everyone. Ten years from now, the Deloitte consultant Erica Volini projects, 70 to 90 percent of workers will be in so-called hybrid jobs ...
 
Office 365 ein Selbstläufer? Was funktioniert und was nicht
14.10.2019
Wer ist verantwortlich und wer übernimmt Verantwortung - IT, Personal oder Marketing? Viele Unternehmen fragen sich: Wie bereiten wir vorhandene und über Jahrzehnte gewachsene Strukturen auf eine "neue Welt" vor, die sich permanent verändert? Eine Welt in der die einzige Konstante der Wandel ist. Wir hören ständig von VUCA, New Work, Digitalisierung, Agilität, ... Mittlerweile sind es nur noch Buzzwords. Leider gibt es auf diese Frage kein einfaches Rezept und trotzdem viele Antworten. Wir benötigen einen gangbaren Weg, der dem Einzelnen bei seiner täglichen ...
 
Does Teams really save you from email?
14.10.2019
Email is a blessing and a curse. At work, it is our main connection to other organizations (blessing) but, when it comes to working inside the company, it can feel inefficient and messy (curse). In search of relief, more and more organizations and individuals are moving their internal work out of email and into Microsoft Teams. But does it actually help? Does Teams save you from email? Here's something i hear (often enough to write this article): "Everyone is saying Teams will reduce my email, but doesn't Teams just mean I have a new place ...
 
Connecting the curious
14.10.2019
Why do students often ask -- will this be on the test? It's because they have figured out the game called education. They are told what to study, what is important, and for how long. Each school year they play the game anew. Why are some -- a significant percentage -- employees not motivated to work? They too have figured out the game. Venkatesh Rao, in The Gervais Principle describes this large base of most companies -- the losers. "The Losers are not social losers (as in the opposite of 'cool'), but people who have struck bad bargains economically ...
 
How to Lead in Uncertain Times
14.10.2019
Uncertainty is not a threat: It is creative and powerful. When leaders can learn to lean into and embrace unpredictability then they will infuse the same throughout their organisation. My question is how organisations can lead us not toward some predictable goal, but toward a greater and greater capacity to handle unpredictability, and with it, a greater capacity to love and care about other people. - Margaret Wheatley Margaret Wheatley, one of the most prescient of systems thinkers and organisation development writers, wrote this twenty years ago in ...
 
Digital Transformation Is Not About Technology
14.10.2019
A recent survey of directors, CEOs, and senior executives found that digital transformation (DT) risk is their #1 concern in 2019. Yet 70% of all DT initiatives do not reach their goals. Of the $1.3 trillion that was spent on DT last year, it was estimated that $900 billion went to waste. Why do some DT efforts succeed and others fail? Fundamentally, it's because most digital technologies provide possibilities for efficiency gains and customer intimacy. But if people lack the right mindset to change and the current organizational practices are flawed, ...
