Discovering Gold through Innovation by Tim Kastelle
One of the weird trends in spam comments now is that through services like mechanical turk people are getting paid to make marginally relevant comments that link back to some spammy site. This makes getting rid of spam a lot harder. However, while I was running through a recent batch, I ran across a comment that got me thinking (I still trashed it though). It was: “I agree. Ideas really are like commodities now.”

The Importance of Organizational Design and Structure by Gill Corkindale via @ralph_ohr
One of the wonderful things about being a coach is that I meet hundreds of executives who freely share their business and leadership challenges with me. As well as helping me understand how hard it is to run an organization, they show me how they are managing to adapt — or not — to changing organizational structures.
Invention without Commercialization = Extinction, not Innovation by Deb Mills-Scofield
My job at Bell Labs was to invent and create. We dreamed up all sorts of wonderful solutions to problems that did and didn’t exist. But how did we learn about these problems? Some we just thought up. Some came from AT&T corporate product management & marketing. But few came from seeing customers firsthand, so we ended up using ourselves as ‘examples’ – not good. AT&T corporate product managers and marketers were supposed to commercialize our inventions; to decide if it met the market needs or if there even was a need.

Welcome to the Age of Dilemma by Umair Haque
Another week, another potentially destabilizing global mini-crisis. This time, it’s (yet another) global food crisis: food prices are set to skyrocket and the FAO’s food price index is already spiking. It’s likely to ignite even more political instability and social turmoil — in layman’s terms, that’s riots, panics, protests, and violence.
HOW TO: Build & Maintain A Talent Community by Heather R. Huhman
A talent community is not a list of candidates on a web page or in a spreadsheet; it is an environment consisting of people who can share ideas for the purpose of career networking or social recruiting of candidates.
Because it is time you take Customer Service seriously.. by Wim Rampen
Despite the economic crisis, the rise of the “Social Customer” and the popularity of Customer engagement strategies through Social Media, I sometimes get the feeling that managers in Customer Services put in a lot more effort to ensure the company does not get bad press, or negative “buzz” in stead of providing a better then expected Customer service experience. We know companies do not always take Customer service seriously. I think though many managers of Customer Services should start taking their discipline a lot more serious than they are doing today..
I hope you have enjoyed this!
Have a great week!
