New Work - Zukunftsmodelle der Arbeit
17.05.2019
Fraunhofer IAO und BMAS analysieren vielversprechende Ansätze in Deutschland Das vom Bundeministerium für Arbeit und Soziales (BMAS) geförderte Projekt »New Work« analysiert die Erfolgsfaktoren für neue Formen der Arbeit und hat dafür in ganz Deutschland interessante Beispiele beschrieben. Wie und über welche Maßnahmen Mitarbeitende in die Managementprozesse einbezogen werden können, hat das Fraunhofer IAO in einer begleitenden Studie untersucht. Die attraktive und zukünftige Gestaltung von Arbeit in deutschen Unternehmen wird in der Öffentlichkeit viel ...
 
Laut arbeiten macht agiler und digitaler: Working Out Loud
17.05.2019
Kürzlich bin ich Umfeld von Agilität, Flexibilität und Cultural Change über die «Working Out Loud»-Methode gestolpert. Working Out Loud - laut arbeiten - was soll das sein? Und wo ist der Zusammenhang zu Agilität und neuen Arbeitsformen? Mithilfe dieser Fragen habe ich versucht, mich ein bisschen schlau zu machen. Ich denke, es ist auf jeden Fall eine interessante Idee für alle im Umfeld von Organisations- und Personalentwicklung. Wir leben in einer vernetzten Welt Auch in immer mehr Unternehmen werden starre Hierarchien langsam von Netzwerken abgelöst. ...
 
Accelerating the Value of Collaboration
17.05.2019
Accelerating the value of collaboration remains the key issue for many organisational leaders. The Value Maturity Model of Collaboration and the extended tools and practices that it has shaped have been a useful guide to adoption practice for leaders and community managers. It has also inspired a range of other applications of the ideas including its use by Swoop Analytics to shape the analytics leaders and teams can use in these networks and a range of extended applications by others, including this recent post by Harold Jarche on its application in ...
 
Organizations as Communities - Part 1
17.05.2019
The very definition of organizations has changed. The impact of digitization is going far beyond a few collaboration tools and platforms. Today's organizations are no longer defined by fixed workplaces, nine-to-five working hours or even a set of homogeneous employees. Organizations have become boundary-less and often, location agnostic and virtual. Operational and business models have been turned on their heads with the advent of enterprises like Uber, Airbnb, Etsy and Amazon. And no industry is immune to this disruption -- from education to retail, ...
 
I have a dream!
17.05.2019
The yearning for a new and better form of respectful and thereby profitable cooperation between people is greater than ever. Industrialization and Taylorism have transformed humans into resources. Initially only the labour of the unskilled worker was in demand, and Henry Ford even complained that he always got also a brain with every pair of hands. Today, in the age of knowledge work, the demands upon and roles of the knowledge worker have differentiated in many ways. However, the basic principle of treating organizations as machines and using employees ...
 
How Timeboxing Works and Why It Will Make You More Productive
17.05.2019
Five years ago I read Daniel Markovitz's argument for migrating to-do lists into calendars. Since then, my productivity has at least doubled. That momentous (at least for me) article describes five problems with the to-do list. First, they overwhelm us with too many choices. Second, we are naturally drawn to simpler tasks which are more easily accomplished. Third, we are rarely drawn to important-but-not-urgent tasks, like setting aside time for learning. Fourth, to-do lists on their own lack the essential context of what time you have available. Fifth, ...
 
Are You Suffering from Mind Wandering Deficit?
17.05.2019
The lack of idle time is a growing concern?--?just like sleep deprivation. How often do you let your mind wander? Your brain may be your most precious resource, and you are only using a small portion of its capacity. We confuse being always on with being productive. But, busyness doesn't make you prolific?--?it just keeps your mind working. You are pushing the engine to the limit, but not getting its full power. Jonathan Schooler, a professor of brain sciences at the University of California is concerned about this growing syndrome: "In the same way ...
 
Tools sind wichtig. Mindset ist wichtiger.
16.05.2019
Immer häufiger wird man mit dem Begriff Mindset konfrontiert. Es ist u.a. zu hören: Wer in agilen Arbeitswelten kein agiles Mindset hat, sei falsch am Platz. Doch was heißt das konkret? Haben Sie das richtige Mindset für die Bewältigung der Digitalisierung? In der Digitalisierungswelle ist es anscheinend notwendig, das richtige Mindset zu haben, bzw. entsprechend rasch aufzubauen - egal ob es um ein Corporate-Mindset, Team-Mindset, Personal-Mindset, etc. geht. Mindset scheint wie die Begriffe smart, lean, agil, ... ein relevantes, erfolgskennzeichnendes ...
 
"Wer New Work will, muss auch neue Entlohnungsmodelle diskutieren!"
16.05.2019
Am 21.11.2019 startet nach zwei komplett ausverkauften Ausgaben endlich wieder Work Awesome, die Konferenz zur Zukunft der Arbeit in Berlin. Von künstlicher Intelligenz bis zu data-driven Human Resources, von radikal neuen Arbeitsformen bis zum Office der Zukunft: Work Awesome verknüpft die TeilnehmerInnen mit den neuesten Ideen und den spannendsten ExpertInnen rund um die Arbeitswelten der Zukunft. Heute beginnen wir eine ganze Serie, in denen wir den Speakern, die wir am 21.11. auf der Bühne haben werden, schon einmal vorab einige spannende Fragen ...
 
Auf dem Weg zu einem neuen Verständnis von wirksamem Wandel
16.05.2019
Wir brauchen dringend ein neues und vor allem gemeinsames Verständnis davon, wie wirksames Verändern wirklich funktioniert. Nur dann werden mehr Veränderungsvorhaben erfolgreich sein. Nur dann werden weniger Menschen unter schlecht gestalteten Veränderungsprozessen leiden. Nur dann werden wir die Möglichkeiten neuer Technologien, Geschäftsmodelle und Ansätze für neues Arbeiten nutzen können. Und nur dann werden wir die gesellschaftlichen Herausforderungen erfolgreich bewältigen. Ich nenne es #New Change. Daher arbeite ich seit 2 Jahren mit Kolleginnen ...
 
Selbstorganisation funktioniert nicht? Oh doch! Wenn man es richtig angeht
16.05.2019
Die meisten Unternehmen haben inzwischen mit New-Work-Initiativen begonnen, Maßnahmen zunehmender Selbstorganisation im Einsatz und agile Tools in Gebrauch. Denn niemand will sich nachsagen lassen, neue Arbeitsweisen nicht unterstützen zu wollen. 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. ...
 
Putting change communication into practice
16.05.2019
Communication is an essential part of effective change. There are key differences between how change communication works compared with our broader experience of organisational communication. At its heart, change communication consists of two core elements: information and involvement. In practice, each of these provides vast territory to explore and expert guidance is needed to ensure time and effort is not wasted or misdirected. Here's six defining features of a successful change communication approach: Put people first Frequency matters Make it leader-led ...
 
How to find, engage and empower your internal influencers
16.05.2019
Follow this guidance to unleash the full messaging might of your hidden heavy hitters. We are all under the influence of influential people. The workplace is no different. When influential, charismatic colleagues speak out, others listen. The more respected and trusted they are, the more powerful their words and actions prove to be. How do you get these internal influencers on your side, and how can communicators use their clout to enhance corporate messaging? First, you must identify them. Here are five key traits of organizational influencers: They ...
 
KM Improves Content Findability
16.05.2019
Once your KM program starts to gain momentum, you should never be satisfied with the status quo. Constantly evaluate it, solicit suggestions for improvement, and implement as many of them as possible. Your goal is to make all components of your program easier to use, more efficient, and more effective in order to yield even better results for your organization. Take your ideas and submitted suggestions, implement them, and then iterate and repeat the cycle. Never stop doing this. One early KM program win (and big improvement that is usually very popular) ...
 
Keine Angst - das Arbeitsparadies bleibt 'out of reach'?
15.05.2019
Es dauert lange mich zu desillusionieren. Doch ich muss sagen, so langsam macht sich Resignation und Trauer bei mir breit. Wenn ich mich, so wie mehrfach in der letzten Woche, über einige grundlegende Dinge wie organisationale Glaubenssätze, die tief verinnerlichten Menschenbilder und die damit verbundenen Wertemuster mit Menschen (von 23 bis 60 Jahren) auseinandersetze, dann graut es mir mehr, als das ich Hoffnung hege. Was ich in diesen Diskussionen oft höre, erinnert mich an die Welt der Medien. Schlechte Nachrichten und Beispiele machen die Masse ...
 
Führung in Zeiten der Disruption
15.05.2019
Glauben Sie auch, dass Führungskräfte immer eine "ruhige Hand" bewahren sollten und ihre Teams damit zu konsistenten und vorhersehbaren Erfolgen führen? Ja, die braucht es auch heute noch, damit das Kerngeschäft läuft und ein Unternehmen auch eine ordentliche Wertschöpfung liefert. Doch wenn es um Führung in Zeiten der Disruption geht, dann benötigt eine Organisation ganz bewusst auch andere Typen oder erweiterte Kompetenzen bei Führungskräften, die ordentlich für Unruhe sorgen. Schluss also bitte mit der Blaupause stereotyper angepasster Führungskräfte, ...
 
What Employees Always Want From Their Intranet
15.05.2019
Every intranet should be unique to the organization it serves. But some themes recur so frequently that they feel fundamental for an intranet to address. My company regularly does discovery work for intranet and digital workplace strategy. The team decided to look back across all the data we'd gathered in the last six years to see what patterns emerged. The sample covered nearly 8,000 survey responses and over 300 focus group participants, representing around 400,000 employees in all. Most companies are headquartered in Europe with a proportion of staff ...
 
Four intranet and internal comms takeaways from the Interact Live event
15.05.2019
This week Chris Tubb and I presented our Spark Trajectory skills matrix at Interact Live, a one day mini-conference themed on internal communications, organised by Interact, the intranet software providers. We thoroughly enjoyed speaking to a mainly comms practitioner audience and there were some very interesting speakers. For a free event this was excellent - very well organised, the venue in central London was good and the Interact team were friendly and helpful. Although there were opportunities to view the Interact software there was no real pushing ...
 
Protecting Company Culture Means Having Rules for Email
15.05.2019
A new study out of Virginia Tech University confirms something that just about every knowledge worker already knows: Dealing with after-hours emails produces anxiety that is damaging not only to the worker, but to their family. One particularly striking finding of this study is that it's not just the amount of time taken up by reading and answering emails after work that's stressing out employees (and their partners). In fact, what's creating more anxiety is just the expectation that an employee will be available for work outside the office. Take this ...
 
The Power of Hidden Teams
15.05.2019
The most-engaged employees work together in ways companies don't even realize. Two nurses. Same job; different hospitals. One provides great care for patients, the other doesn't. Why? Jordan has worked at Stanford Health Care as a clinical nurse in the orthopedic department for the past three years. In a recent interview with us, she described how thrilled she is to be in a role whose entire purpose is helping people get better one by one. In particular, she loves what she calls the interdisciplinary approach, in which the family, the case manager, the ...
 
Sie ist da: die New Work Charta
14.05.2019
Warum eine New Work Charta? Die Zukunft der Arbeit und der damit verbundene Umbruch der Arbeitsgesellschaft sind in aller Munde. Innerhalb der Unternehmen fordern die Digitalisierung von Geschäftsprozessen, neue Wertschöpfungsketten, aber ebenso veränderte Werte und Erwartungen von Mitarbeitern und Führungskräften neue Impulse für Management, Zusammenarbeit und Führung. Außerhalb der Unternehmen verändern sich deren Märkte teilweise extrem schnell, Produktionszyklen verkürzen sich, es herrschen komplexe Verhältnisse und fehlende Planbarkeit. Die aktuellen ...
 
From Individual Entities to Coordination and Reaped Synergies
14.05.2019
Is your collaboration with external stakeholders coordinated? Learn how to act as ONE organization in your external collaboration! The Challenge The country unit of an intergovernmental organization was on a mission to streamline the way it collaborated with external stakeholders. The unit consisted of +200 people divided into 12 different entities that all relied heavily on external collaboration. The organization knew that several entities were collaborating with the same external stakeholders, but they did not have clear overview of who was collaborating ...
 
Discover the Magic of Top-down and Bottom-up Communications with a Social Intranet
14.05.2019
op-down vs bottom-up... what is it? I often discuss these two terms and the magic that they create inside a community-based intranet.? "Top-down" refers to the traditional intranet messaging originating from corporate communications, HR, IT, and other business units. It includes C-suite leadership and vision messaging, policy updates, and additional key information to keep employees aligned with the companies goals and mission.? "Bottom-up" is the ability for employees to leverage a collaboration platform to self-organize their work in ways that make ...
 
What "Facilitation" Really Means And Why It's Key To The Future Of Work
14.05.2019
Being a good facilitator isn't the same as knowing how to manage people or run a meeting. It all comes down to understanding the tools-and structure-that help people collaborate. What comes to mind when you hear the term "facilitator"? A task manager hogging airspace up at the front of the room? Or thoughts like, "Ugh-okay, how do I get out of attending this workshop?" But done right, facilitation isn't about boring presentations. It's a process for getting groups of people together to solve any problem. Good facilitators know how to jump right in, establish ...
 
How to Speak Up When It Matters
14.05.2019
Speaking up is hard to do. You see something ethically questionable. Notice someone not being included. Run up against offensive speech. Disagree with an opinion that's all too quickly become consensus. Want to add a different idea to the decision-making process. While we'd all like to think that if we saw something, we'd say something in these situations, we are strikingly bad at anticipating how we'll feel in future circumstances and, for a whole host of cognitive reasons, it can be incredibly difficult to speak up in the moment. In fact, research ...
 
Zur Destruktivität von Idealen! Sollen Organisationen Sinn stiften?
13.05.2019
[...] Der Fokus für diesen Artikel beschäftigt sich mit dem Konzept, welches mit dem Begriff "Purpose" oder "purpose driven organisation", die Idee verfolgt, Organisationen sollten und könnten einen wertvollen Zweck ausmachen, der die Arbeit der Organisationsmitglieder mit Sinn ausstattet. Man verfolgt im Prinzip ein Ende von "entfremdeter Arbeit", welche vom Mitarbeiter die Erfüllung einer vorgeschriebenen Aufgabe im Austausch gegen Entlohnung verlangt. Schaut man sich etwas das Thema des diesjährigen Berliner Change-Kongresses "Romantic Renaissance ...
 
Five Lessons On Changin Your Culture
13.05.2019
I am on my way back from a technology services conference - #TSW19 - in San Diego. Lots of talk about the Tech Industry being disrupted. The list of 'disrupters' included Artificial Intelligence (AI), SaaS and the Cloud. One of the big additional problems the Tech Sector has is that they are adapting (or not) while simultaneously working with their customers, who, in turn, are struggling to adapt. This means the term "digital transformation" was ubiquitous at the conference. And, right at the heart of this digital transformation discussion was the belief ...
 
Team Work: The Bare Essentials
13.05.2019
The email detox experiment we are running generated a very positive response. So, here we share more on our experiments. The focus this time is on working rhythm and the tools we use. I can tell you: for a bunch of people who don't like structure, this is as structured as it gets! Structure for the structure-less We constantly adapt. We learn from the best, put it to the test, and figure out what works for us. Through experimentation we try to get better at how we do what we do. Our way of working is not perfect. It never will be. We're allergic to meetings, ...
 
Why your digital workplace needs microservices
13.05.2019
The idea of microservices has been around for over a decade, but it is only recently that it has started to have an impact on digital workplace design. My hope is that this non-technical introduction will help intranet and digital workplace managers understand why it can be helpful in their objectives and improve the digital employee experience. For example Wells Fargo, the multinational financial services company, has a leading-edge intranet, called Teamworks. They have used microservices extensively as a design principle, creating a solution that genuinely ...
 
The Most Important Skill to Thrive In the Future of Work
13.05.2019
Be curious --?learn and think like a 4-year-old. Learning is a force for change. Thriving in the future of work is not about the skills you have but about the skills you can achieve. Learning how to learn is your most important skill. But, we got it all wrong. We keep teaching kids to think like machines. And machines to think like adults. For years, scientists have been trying to replicate the wrong mind?--?that of an adult. Teaching machines to defeat a chess master is easy-- but machines cannot think like a 4-year-old. The father of computer science ...
 
Before You Set New Goals, Think About What You're Going to Stop Doing
13.05.2019
Remember your new year's resolutions? Are you still doing them? If the answer is "no," most likely you fell into the trap that stops most individuals from accomplishing their resolutions: not consciously taking old activities out of their schedule to make room for the new. It's the equivalent of trying to stuff more papers into a file drawer that's already packed tight or going into debt to cover additional purchases. You can take the pinch for a little while, but soon you're stretched too thin and need to recalibrate to get back to a sustainable lifestyle ...
