ADVICE: For Effective Marketing Content, Start with the End Result. Ever say something in a meeting that the boss never let you forget? I did that about a year ago, but I think he’s over it now because since then I’ve learned something that now guides the way our Dallas marketing firm thinks about content.

The lesson is this: When creating content for marketing purposes, the first consideration isn’t the story you have but the result you want. I came to Internet marketing firms after a long career in newspapers. And newspaper reporters and editors, most of them anyway, work hard to present the incremental developments in an ongoing story without regard to the ultimate result. In Marketing, the Story is a Vehicle for Action I brought my journalistic approach to Idea Grove, and into an early client meeting in which I tried to leverage my newspaper experience in a self-deprecating way by saying, “I don’t know much about public relations, but I’ve consumed a lot of it.” New Priorities for Content: What, Who, How.

Five Discovery Skills that Distinguish Great Innovators. By Jeff Dyer , Hal Gergersen, and Clayton M. Christensen In their new book, The Innovator's DNA, authors Jeff Dyer, Hal Gergersen, and Clayton M. Christensen build on the idea of disruptive innovation to explain how and why the Steve Jobses and Jeff Bezoses of the world are so successful. This excerpt from Chapter One summarizes the five discovery skills that distinguish innovative entrepreneurs and executives from run-of-the-mill managers. What Makes Innovators Different? So what makes innovators different from the rest of us? But does research really support this idea? This is one reason that individuals who grow up in societies that promote community versus individualism and hierarchy over merit—such as Japan, China, Korea, and many Arab nations—are less likely to creatively challenge the status quo and turn out innovations (or win Nobel prizes).

Footnotes 6. 12 Guidelines for Deciding When to Persist, When to Quit - Rosabeth Moss Kanter. By Rosabeth Moss Kanter | 1:00 PM October 23, 2012 When you’re getting something new going, the difference between success and failure is often a matter of time: how long you give it before you give up.

Efforts that begin with high hopes inevitably hit a disappointing sag. It’s Kanter’s Law: “Everything can look like a failure in the middle.” In the messy middle, unexpected obstacles pop up because the path is uncharted. Fatigue sets in. Team members turn over. Impatient critics attack just when you think you’re gaining traction. That’s why persistence and perseverance are important for anyone leading a new venture, change project, or turnaround. Persist and pivot, and the effort could go on to success. Consider this real-time case. But a year might seem short to other people. Are the initial reasons for the effort still valid, with no consequential external changes?

How the People Economy is Playing Out Inside Organ... - By Matt Rizai, CEO, Workiva The past few years have seen a shift in the way people think about workplace culture. While culture was once viewed as something that emerged organically without thought or intention, there is a growing realization that culture plays a key role in the success or failure of organizations. Companies that are thoughtful in shaping their culture reap many benefits, such as the ability to attract and retain top talent and nurture loyal, satisfied customers.

People Over Process One of the biggest indicators of a vibrant workplace culture is the willingness of a company to place more value on its people than on process. Technology plays an important role in the people economy, allowing companies to explore new ways of working that meet the needs of today’s diverse workforce.

Trust and reputation systems: redistributing power and influence - People use social networking tools to figure out who they can trust and rely on for decision making.

By the end of this decade, power and influence will shift largely to those people with the best reputations and trust networks, from people with money and nominal power. That is, peer networks will confer legitimacy on people emerging from the grassroots. This shift is already happening, gradually creating a new power and influence equilibrium with new checks and balances. It will seem dramatic when its tipping point occurs, even though we're living through it now. Everyone gets a chance to participate in large or small ways, giving a voice to what we once called "the silent majority. " (Okay, I started with the bottom line.
