Get Off Of My Cloud: Sonar6 vs. Rypple Like a lot of HR pros who like to figure out ways to use technology, I'm a fan of Performance Management apps in the organization. Goal alignment, consistency in delivery, assisting managers in providing quality feedback and tracking are all good reasons to automate how you deploy performance management in your organization.

That means I had the freedom to experiment with newer, lighter, more nimble applications on the performance side of the house that I never would have had the opportunity to touch as an HR exec in the field for a Fortune 100.
Creating Bottom-Up Tech Tools to Fight Ebola Liberian youths flash their mobile phones in support of UNICEF's U-Report (UNICEF Liberia) The fight against Ebola in West Africa is far from over even if media attention has waned. While the virus has slowed in Liberia, down from a reported 100 cases per day to around 20, Ebola is a disease that spreads exponentially and could still easily spin out of control.

Southbeach Modeller . . . and TRIZ If you have spent a few minutes at Mind-Mapping.Org or on this blog, you will know that I like and use mind maps and concept maps. You may not know I also use more formal visual models like data models, object-role modelling, and process simulation models. I find these immensely useful in understanding the way businesses work, improving businesses and finding ways to solve problems. One modelling tool I learned about last year, Southbeach Notation, has grabbed more of my attention. Someone emailed me and asked why Southbeach Modeller was not in the Master List, and I slapped my forehead and asked myself the same question, because I had known about it for around a year.

Using Emergence to Scale Social Innovation, by Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze In spite of current ads and slogans, the world doesn't change one person at a time. It changes as networks of relationships form among people who discover they share a common cause and vision of what's possible. This is good news for those of us intent on changing the world and creating a positive future. Rather than worry about critical mass, our work is to foster critical connections.
