Are You Leveraging the Experiences, Skills and Creativity of Your Employees and Partners?
We work with you to mobilize the power of the people working and partnering with you. Historically, businesses and individuals often benefited from carefully guarding their ideas, staff competencies and knowledge closely to them, so that they would not lose competitive advantage. Organizations have often limited the ability of staff members to contribute intellectual capital based upon their level in the organizational structure.
Technology has first facilitated and now mandated that we add value to our customers and clients by connecting the abilities of all of our employees and partners to develop and deliver the best services. Malcolm Gladwell makes the case for how individual inspiration and genius is being replaced by the power of collaboration. In Wikinomics, Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams don't just make the case, but show us how massive collaboration is changing how we do business and provide the most benefit to our customers. More yet, in a recent article in Wired Magazine, futurists describe how the google inquiries, blog entries and YouTube contributions are adding up to a "One World Machine" containing and building human knowledge and information connection.
Your ability to leverage this changed and changing environment, empowering staff and accessing external resources in smart ways, contributes to your current and future success. The great news is that we need not struggle alone. We can leverage the experience and passions of people who share our passion and interest. In fact, if you have not joined LinkedIn, give it a try.
