Effizienz mutiert vom Erfolgsmittel zum Fehlgriff
14.06.2019
Alle schwärmen von Effizienz. Energieeffizienz, sparsamerer Umgang mit Ressourcen, effizienter Arbeitsfluss, effizientes Management, ... scheinen Erfolge sicherzustellen. Lean gilt als Top-Instrumentarium, mit dem man Unternehmen und deren Management bestmöglich strukturiert, wettbewerbsstark, zukunftsorientiert, eben effizient auszurichten vermag. Effizienz als Erfolgsgarant Am Anfang der Effizienzmaschine stand der Wunsch, mehr Produkte und Dienstleistungen anbieten zu können, um den Mangel, den es durchaus einmal gab, beseitigen zu können. Ein so ...
 
Vom Digital Workplace als Enabler der Transformation zum Hub für die digitale Organisation - Einstiegsbeitrag zur Blog-Parade #digitalArbeiten
14.06.2019
Als Einstiegsbeitrag zu unserer Blog-Parade rund um die Fragestellung "Wie lässt sich das digitale (Zusammen-)Arbeiten in Unternehmen nun endlich voranbringen?" möchte ich an dieser Stelle nochmals quer durch die Ergebnisse verschiedener Studien sowie bisheriger Diskussionen ein Resümee aus unserer Sicht auf den Stand der digitalen Transformationen in der Zusammenarbeit und Arbeitsrganisation geben. Ziel dieser "kleinen" Beitragsübung ist es auch - die Gedanken hinter den Themenblöcken und offenen Fragestellungen unserer Blog-Parade etwas zu erläutern. ...
 
Die Angst vor der zufallenden Tür
14.06.2019
Das OMR Festival in Hamburg, ist ein ziemlich beeindruckendes Event, auf dem wir uns liebend gern inspirieren lassen. Neben frischen Infos und spannenden Speakern ist es insbesondere dieser Geist des Aufbruchs, der kreativen Schöpfung, des Experimentierens und des Gründens, der uns immer wieder anlockt. Peter lief beim diesjährigen Festival Anfang Mai ganz zufällig eine Bekannte über den Weg. Die letzte Begegnung mit ihr war schon ein paar Monate her und damals hatte sie geplant, ihren Job zu kündigen und ein Startup zu gründen. Mit funkelnden Augen ...
 
Why you should be focussing on "teamship"
14.06.2019
Companies may focus on performancebased individual development for their staff, but agile structures require more teamwork. So why is "teamship" training not a key part of every organisation's programme? As the focus on creating virtual and agile teams continues to grow in many workplaces, a key question has to be why learning and development programmes (L&D) remain so oriented towards the individual. The issue is if organisations wish to assemble flexible networks of project-based teams made up of different specialisms that are created and disbanded ...
 
Netwerkanalyse als startpunt van verandering
14.06.2019
Veel veranderingen in organisaties stagneren door onvoldoende goede informatie over de verandering of heersende negatieve normen over de verandering. Voor mijn afstudeerscriptie aan de opleiding Communicatie en Beïnvloeding bracht ik in twee organisaties de informatiestromen en de sociale normen in kaart met een sociale-netwerkanalyse. Ik vroeg me af hoe deze inzichten gebruikt kunnen worden bij interne communicatie rondom een verandering. Deze week presenteerde ik bij de International Communication Association conferentie in Washington D.C. de resultaten ...
 
Could Internal Communications take ownership of on-boarding?
14.06.2019
With all the talk about employee experience and the employee journey - one area that has long been seen as a problem by employees and employers is on-boarding. We think it is time for some serious rethinking and, potentially, a change of ownership. What is on-boarding? On-boarding is the process through which a newly hired employee is expected to be transformed from an enthusiastic recruit into a productive hire, ideally with no loss of enthusiasm. We are talking about more than just making a good first impression - we're talking about a critical time ...
 
Neuer SputnikSchock?! oder "Experimentieren bedeutet Regeln brechen"?
13.06.2019
Wer neue Wege, neue Produkte oder Services oder ganze Business Modelle finden möchte, braucht Innovation. Wenn plötzlich große Organisationen ernsthafte Probleme bekommen, kleine Startups zu echten Konkurrenten werden und sich Märkte so drastisch ändern, ist Handeln angesagt. Evolutionär oder Disruptiv? Unsere Organisationen, politischen Systeme, Bildungsapparate basieren weitgehend auf den Säulen "Hierarchie" und "Bürokratie". Mit einer 2000-jährigen Anlaufzeit sorgen diese mächtigen Werkzeuge für geregelte Abläufe, klare Strukturen, definierte Rollen ...
 
Working Out Loud: Better for Individuals & Better for Organizations
13.06.2019
It was in the corporate world when I heard about "Working Out Loud" for the first time. People empowering themselves. Diverse interactions within the whole company. New and deeper ways to connect with others. But it was not until a year after when I could experience it myself. Now. In 2019. Without even knowing that I was 'working out loud', I started developing a network of meaningful relationships and the connections kept supporting me and opening doors to meet new people with very similar interests and inspirations. As John Stepper, creator of the ...
 
10 reasons why you don't need "learning technologies" to enable learning at work
13.06.2019
So here are 10 reasons why you don't need dedicated learning technologies to enable and support learning at work. Can you think of any more? Learning is everyone's responsibility; not something to be controlled and managed centrally using specialist tools and platform. Learning technologies separate learning from the work and daily life. My 12-year longitudinal study Top Tools for Learning shows that the most popular and the most valuable tools for learning are multi-purpose; i.e. they can be used for many different reasons. Learning is not something ...
 
Discipline Beyond Obedience
13.06.2019
Children are awesome. And sometimes they are an awesome challenge. To be honest, our two daughters are this every single day - more than once. Young children in particular express their insatiable desire for self-determination without restraint. Especially when we as parents, for good reasons or because time is pressing, want to control them and demand obedience. However, they react to our threats and manipulation attempts all the more rigorously with refusal, the more forcefully we put these forward. This is exhausting, but in essence also very good, ...
 
Why Every Association Exec Needs to Read The State of Community Management Report
13.06.2019
Hellloooo there! Been about a million minutes since I last posted here-or anywhere, other than my journal-but I guess that's what happens when you become your own boss. It's been a wild year to say the least, but kind of an awesome one. I'll save the long story for another time, but short story: I'm currently self-employed (with a new website to show for it...still a work in progress) and my days either loving working from home or being super lonely working from home, or usually a mix of the two throughout each day. But more on that later because otherwise ...
 
8 Ways to Read the Books You Wish You Had Time For
13.06.2019
You need to read more books. When I tell people this, most say, "Oh, yes, for sure, yes." But then two seconds later, they say "I just wish I had the time." Well, you know what? I'm calling shenanigans on that excuse. Because the truth is we do have the time. A University of California report shows we're consuming more information now than we ever have before -- more than 100,000 words per day. Think about how many texts and alerts and notifications and work emails and personal emails and news headlines and fly-by tickers and blog feeds and Twitter spews ...
 
Wie aus einem traditionellen ein Social Intranet wird
12.06.2019
Wie überzeugt man Mitarbeiter von einem modernen Intranet, das mehr ist als die interne Webseite mit Kantinenplan und Glückwunsch-Posts? Der regionale Energieversorger enivaM hat gemeinsam mit der Intranet-Agentur Hirschtec ein modernes Social Intranet eingeführt. Im Interview erzählen sie, worauf es ankommt. Das Intranet wandelt sich derzeit von einer digitalen Mitarbeiterzeitung mit eingebautem Formular-Ordner zur Schaltzentrale für Unternehmen. In unterschiedlichen Geschwindigkeiten wird aus der oft drögen Webseite die zentrale Arbeitsplattform, inklusive ...
 
Becoming "agile"? is the solution for all problems!?
12.06.2019
The goals: We need to develop more customer/business focus. We need to become faster. We need to work better together. We need to make faster and better decisions. The solution: Let's become agile. Let´s introduce agile organizational structures & simply introducing "New Work". "Kanban" and "Scrum" will for sure help, and let's definitely do this "DevOps". Then everything will be better, faster and more customer oriented! For sure! Or not? The problems are recognized and the goals are well formulated? But before we go into implementation, ...
 
Why Your Team Is Not Working as a Team
12.06.2019
7 ways individualism is getting in their way. "Great things in business are never done by one person; they are done by a team of people."?--?Steve Jobs Organizations are full of paradoxes, and the notion of teams is a perfect example. Everyone worships teams. But, the way most companies operate, is not helping. That's why teamwork is sometimes an illusion. What happened to the US basketball team in the 2004 Olympics took everyone by surprise. The "Dream Team" was humiliated by the Puerto Rican underdogs. Having infinite resources including top individual ...
 
Innovating Without Permission...Is It Possible?
12.06.2019
Innovating by trying new processes, technologies, ways of working, or solutions comes somewhat naturally for me. Think of it like creating a new recipe - rarely do I make something from scratch, but you'll find me digging in old cookbooks, using the goodness of one recipe and combining it with another or adding new ingredients. Ask my husband - the recipe analogy is real! I've had major culinary successes and even bigger food fails. I believe the same is true with innovation. Breakthrough innovation is rare - I haven't seen many "eureka" moments where ...
 
How Do We Design Workplaces For Maximum Productivity
12.06.2019
Workplaces are supposed to be productive. Being productive is not a straightforward concept. In simplest terms, being productive is defined as the rate of output per input unit. However, in a workplace, this cannot be so accurately measured particularly when it comes to human performance. Depending on the kind of organization, there are several other factors that impact this such as cost, efficiency, and value. Department of Labour describes workplace productivity as "Productive workplaces are built on teamwork and a shared vision of where a business ...
 
9 Ways to Say No to Busywork and Unrealistic Deadlines
12.06.2019
The difference between living a life of peace and productivity versus a life of stress and resentment could lie in one simple skill: Learning how to say no. Saying no makes the difference between a packed schedule and an open one. It makes the difference between having too many tasks and having just the right amount. It makes the difference between working crazy hours and hitting deadlines without stress. But saying no can be tough. You might feel uncomfortable saying no because you worry about upsetting people, looking like you can't handle your workload, ...
 
Transformationsprozesse: Wenn Unternehmen sich auf eine Reise ins Unbekannte begeben
11.06.2019
Die großen Transformationen Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Organisationen stehen vor vielfältigen Herausforderungen und großen Umbrüchen. Alte Paradigmen und Regimes verlieren an Bedeutung, neue Ansätze gewinnen an Zugkraft. Viele Unternehmen begeben sich gegenwärtig auf eine Reise, um sich grundlegend zu erneuern. Sie wollen digitaler, agiler, kundenzentrierter, mitarbeiterfreundlicher, diverser, innovativer, partizipativer, grüner ... werden. Die Art, wie viele Organisationen diese Transformationen angehen, unterscheidet sich deutlich von einem bisherigen ...
 
9 Gebote - damit Enterprise Agility gelingt!
11.06.2019
Die Herausforderung für Unternehmen wie auch für Volkswirtschaften lautet, das Bestandsgeschäft erfolgreich zu führen und gleichzeitig innovatives Neugeschäft zu entwickeln. Der Schlüssel dazu ist gerade in Deutschland "Enterprise Agility" oder Innovation auf Basis einer systematischen Evolution der Organisation und ihrer Teilorganisationen. Nach den neun Grundwerten der Enterprise Agility präsentieren wir hier die neun Grundregeln beziehungsweise die 9 Gebote, bevor wir dann auf einzelne Teilkonzepte eingehen werden. Deutschland auf der Suche nach dem ...
 
(Digital and Social) Avengers Assemble
11.06.2019
SocialNow, Lisbon, 6 and 7 June 2019 There was a moment on Saturday afternoon under the blue skies of Lisbon, where it felt like a moment from the first Avengers movie. Something to do, perhaps, with the angular lines and balconies of the venue (imagine Captain America and Black Widow chatting about the end of the world up there), but more due to the assembled team of crack digital evangelists, social business advocates and deep thinkers chatting and sharing stories into the early summer evening. To continue the Marvel analogy, with a click of his fingers ...
 
How to get employee recognition right
11.06.2019
Employee recognition is the secret ingredient to successful engagement, but it is difficult to master. When Terry Virts, commander on board the International Space Station's 2015-16 Expedition 42, discovered fellow astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti would miss the one thing she really looked forward to, her six-monthly couture haircut, he decided to do something about it. "We specifically want our managers to really get to know staff, so on-the-spot recognition feels authentic and appropriate to them." Before blast-off, he secretly took lessons from Cristoforetti's ...
 
Why Good Enough Is Better than Perfect
11.06.2019
The simple psychological shift to free you from perfectionism. Perfectionism is not striving for excellence but being impaired by it. "My life has been nothing but a failure," perfectionist Claude Monet once said. In 1908, after three years of working on a new series of paintings, Monet felt many weren't up to his standard. It was right before the opening of a new exhibition in Paris. With a knife and a paintbrush, the French artist destroyed 15 of the would-be masterpieces. The exhibition, of course, had to be postponed. "I know well enough in advance ...
 
If Your Managers Aren't Engaged, Your Employees Won't Be Either
11.06.2019
Many CEOs and CHROs list "culture change" as a top priority. They know their organizations need to become more agile and adaptable to rapid transformations and they want to be able to make good decisions and execute them quickly. Furthermore, they especially want to attract and retain the biggest stars. Building and maintaining a good corporate culture is key to all these aspirations. Yet many CEOs and CHROs ignore the most important factor in building the culture they want: managers. Too often, the very managers upon whom organizations depend to create ...
 
Wieviel digitale Kompetenz braucht Führung?
10.06.2019
Qualifizierte Mitarbeiter tragen maßgeblich zum Erfolg der digitalen Transformation bei. Das ist sicherlich keine neue Erkenntnis und daher sind auch viele Anstrengungen im Recruiting mit dem Zauberwort "Digitalisierung" verbunden. Doch wie sieht es eigentlich mit der Digitalkompetenz unserer Führungskräfte aus? Denn wenn es wirklich so ist, dass die "fehlende Digitalkompetenz Deutschland zu einer beispiellosen Aufholjagd im internationalen Vergleich zwingt", dann muss die Frage erlaubt sein, wieviel digitale Kompetenz eine Führungskraft überhaupt besitzen ...
 
Manager wollen die Welt retten - oder sich selbst?!
10.06.2019
Die Kompetenzen der Zukunft seien sogenannte Soft Skills, soziale Kompetenzen und kreatives Denken, sagen Zukunftsforscher und Personalfachleute. Im März 2019 schrieb Dr. Ferri Abolhassan, Member of the Board of Directors bei der Telekom Deutschland GmbH, über das Erfordernis von Empathie für ein erfolgsversprechendes Business in digitalen Zeiten. Doch eine Analyse der Führungskräfteberatung DDI ergab, dass nur 40% der Führungskräfte empathisch stark zu sein scheinen - 60% der Manager sind in Sachen Empathie anscheinend anderweitig unterwegs, bzw. verstehen ...
 
Gehen Sie nicht über Los...!
10.06.2019
tl;dr: Der Kapitalismus als Wirtschaftssystem steht zunehmend in der Kritik und womöglich vor seinem Ende. Brauchen wir ein neues System, um die Herausforderungen der Zukunft zu meistern? Ein neues Buch mit dem Titel "Quantenwirtschaft: Was kommt nach der Digitalisierung?" legt genau dies nahe. Kapitalismuskritik hat derzeit wieder einmal Hochkonjunktur, nicht nur aufgrund einer Debatte, die Jusovorsitzender Kevin Kühnert noch kurz vor der Europawahl angestossen hat. Eine, wie sich ja schnell herausstellte, notwendige und aufschlussreiche Debatte. Und ...
 
Sprecht alle miteinander!
10.06.2019
Katharina Krentz hat bei Bosch den "tollsten Job der Welt" - sie ist dort für die Methode "Working Out Loud" zuständig und hat damit schon über 4.500 Kollegen miteinander verbunden und ganz schön viel in Bewegung gebracht ... Hallo Katharina, wir haben dich gerade bei deinem Vortrag zu Working Out Loud (WOL) auf der re:publica19 erlebt. Das war fast schon wie ein Popstar-Auftritt. Der Raum war überfüllt, die Menschen total begeistert - von der Methode, aber ich glaube auch, von deinem Enthusiasmus. Warum glaubst du, gibt es diese Begeisterung dafür? ...
 
Speeding up Organizational Change
10.06.2019
All organizations must grapple with change, yet many conventional models of organizational change management leave me dissatisfied. I recently revisited some classic texts on change management and a few of them reminded me of Sleeping Beauty. Do you remember the fairy tale? In this era of constant change, the way a business delivers value today likely won't be the same tomorrow. Leading companies recognize the need to continually innovate in order to uncover new sources of revenue, create a sustainable competitive advantage and drive business growth. ...
 
The Reason Why People Leave Their Jobs
10.06.2019
A new study shows there are actually two This might be the best time to get a new job. Workers have the advantage right now. With the lowest unemployment rate in almost 50 years -- there are more job openings than people available to fill them. As the recent Payscale study suggests, none of us are paid enough -- it's a seller's market right now. No surprise then that the top reason people quit their jobs is for higher pay. But, that's just one part of the answer. Money can't buy employee's loyalty. People don't just want to earn more -- they might leave ...
 
Screw Long Hours And Endless Meetings
10.06.2019
For many people, working long hours is business as usual. Some are even proud of it. They think it shows ambition and dedication. Wrong! In our view, it's the opposite. If you are not in control of your own hours and working pace, it is a weakness. It means you are a slave to other peoples' priorities. Chill the f_ck down To cure these poisonous work cultures, progressive companies are experimenting with other approaches. They deliberately value calmness in their organizations. They free colleagues from unhealthy stress and work-life imbalance. Here's ...
