Companies and Movements

John Hagel

Movements and companies – what’s the intersection between these two? Sure, there are movements against companies – we all can name dozens of boycotts against specific companies for a variety of reasons, ranging from unfair labor practices to the politics of the countries they’re from. Even the labor movement that gave rise to Labor Day was at one level a movement against companies. But, what about companies that are catalysts and drivers of movements of their own?

The Rise of the Global Superstar Company

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The September 17 issue of The Economist included a special report on the rise of so called superstar companies. “Disruption may be the buzzword in boardrooms, but the most striking feature of business today is not the overturning of the established order,” notes The Economist. “It is the entrenchment of a group of superstar companies at the heart of the global economy.”. The current rise of large companies is somewhat unexpected.

Dan Pontefract

I’m here to defend the term, “Company Culture” But first, a bit of a background to the author. ” Is there no “company culture” present in Japan? Greg eloquently depicted what true “company culture” ought to be about. They surfaced evidence that “company culture” will often reflect the personality of its CEO.

Disruptive Innovations and Large Companies

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A few weeks ago I gave a seminar at an executive management class for a large, global company. The class consisted of up-and-coming executives, roughly in their late 20s and early 30s with 5 - 10 years in the company. Given my long career at IBM, as well as my more recent involvement with Citi, it is not surprising that I am particularly interested in entrepreneurship and innovation in large companies. It is different with large companies.

Choosing the company that you keep

Euen Semple

I have no problem unfriending them and avoiding their company in just the same way as I would in real life. I like having a large group of online friends and the variety of viewpoints that I am exposed to as a result. I am also very sensitive to the risk of avoiding criticism or dissent, only hearing views that I agree with, and ending up in an echo chamber. However.

Good company

Dave Snowden

So its the second day of the new year and I am on my first flight of 2012 to Zurich. Its the 0725 flight so with long term parking needs I ended up staying near Reading and accepting a 0430 alarm call which was not welcome after a post Rugby match arrival at 2330, but better than going home and getting up even earlier. It was a welcome flight though as it is to spend a couple of days with Simon Bennett, Steve Freeman, Joseph Pelrine and Karl Scotland.

The Connected Company Review

Harold Jarche

I received a copy of Dave Gray’s The Connected Company from O’Reilly books and must say that Dave has done a great job. The book also includes a lot of detail (almost 300 pages) on how to shift to becoming a connected company as well as how to lead one. So what is a connected company? A connected company is a complex, adaptive system that functions more like an organism than a machine. A connected company is a learning company.

The connected company

Dave Gray

Do you know what the average life expectancy for a company is? In a recent talk , John Hagel pointed out that the average life expectancy of a company in the S&P 500 has dropped precipitously, from 75 years (in 1937) to 15 years in a more recent study. Why is the life expectancy of a company so low? I believe that many of these companies are collapsing under their own weight. The company grows beyond a certain point. Wouldn’t you like that for your company?

Should Companies Allow Facebook at Work?

Dan Pontefract

Late last year I was at a dinner with a Board I won’t mention by name. There were roughly 50 people at the event. Tables were pre-assigned and I found myself sitting across from a chap in his mid-50′s whose professional job was an accountant. He worked at a rather large firm as a partner. And no, I won’t insert any accountant jokes at this time. About halfway through the meal, the conversation at the table of 10 shifted to social media.

Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Large Companies

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A disproportionate number of entrepreneurial companies are, indeed, small start-ups. But the article then went on to define entrepreneurship as something that applies not only to new or small companies. The defining characteristic of entrepreneurship, then, is not the size of the company but the act of innovation.” Quite a few people think that entrepreneurship in large companies is an oxymoron.

Should Your Company Get on the Blockchain Learning Curve Now or Wait?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger
