Carol Bartz will turn Yahoo around What is it about human nature that so many people lead to go for the negative right away? Carol Bartz' appointment to CEO of Yahoo is new news - hot off the press - and the Reuters news title is New Yahoo CEO lacks Web and deal-making chops . They do credit her business skills but go straight to her lack of Internet experience and that she has a history of doing small and medium deals - implying she doesn't have the chops for Microsoft. Frankly, I think Carol's a great pick for Yahoo.

Hildy Gottlieb’s latest post has got me to thinking more about the so-called generational leadership gap in nonprofit organizations. She and I agree that there is not really a “gap” in leadership. What we really have is an ongoing disconnect around the myth that young people aren’t yet “ready” to take the reigns from current leaders . . . when it’s clear that we absolutely are. This inability for many older leaders to pass the torch is partly what causes young people to become disenchanted with nonprofit work and often underperform in their current roles. Many young nonprofit professionals are waiting until they get the title of “Director” to lead. They are waiting until their older colleagues deem them “ready” to lead instead of emerging as leaders in the here and now.

by Dan Pallotta | 11:47 AM December 22, 2009 Anyone who has thought about it for more than a nanosecond agrees that "nonprofit" is about the worst possible summary we could give of ourselves and our work. As I wrote recently , the word "profit" comes from the Latin noun profectus for "progress" and the verb proficere for "to advance." Thus, "nonprofit" means, etymologically, nonprogress. This is not a simple case of mistaken meaning.

The role of influence is changing and diversifying and with it, the rules and responsibilities of engagement are also reshaping. While PR, analyst, and investor relations were clear yesterday, the rise of new influencers , tastemakers and authoritative users and customers becomes both pervasive and uncertain. As such, new opportunities for engagement emerge; creating new opportunities for cultivating distributed relationships. However, each new connection requires management, a support infrastructure, including a dedicated host. The democratization of content production, publishing and distribution has extended the authoritative legacy of existing experts (media, analysts, pundits, online reporters) and also paved the way for a new genre of savants to join the fray.
I had the pleasure of recording a podcast led by Michael Krigsman with Naomi Bloom entitled Enterprise unplugged: Riffing on failure and performance . Michael Krigsman is CEO of Asuret, Inc. , a software and consulting company dedicated to reducing software implementation failures and writes the popular ZDNet blog on IT Project Failures . I have been most impressed by his steadfast dedication to cataloging in great detail the root causes of IT project failures in an effort to ensure a higher success rate. If you are a practitioner in any aspect of project implementation, including Analytics, Business Intelligence, and Performance Management, his blog is a must read.
