Leading Virtually

Does such diversity help a team address different and, oftentimes, competing team performance expectations that are typical for many teams? Are there any ways in which this diversity can be managed so that it benefits rather than hinders team performance?

The ‘attentional commons’?

Neighbourhoods

In the process, we’ve sacrificed silence — the condition of not being addressed.’. Go back further in history and reflect on any urban context, and you have to wonder how we can have come to assume a right not to be addressed.

The advantages of moving from one kind of poverty to another

Neighbourhoods

Do we want our policy makers to assume that the misery of poverty can be ameliorated more readily by a programme of physically moving some families around, than by addressing economic inequalities? It’s great that we now have some evidence of the impact of living in unsafe and stressful environments; but we still need to see some action to transform such places, and to address the increasing problem of poverty itself.

Up the wrong tree? Social exclusion in the network society

Neighbourhoods

If it wasn't about access to information sources; and it's clearly not about appropriate content if it ever was; and for all the rhetoric about 'digital divide' it's no longer significantly about access to the kit or connections; is there still a sense in which people who experience exclusion are constrained in their use of information and communication technology to address their own circumstances?

The ‘Sisterhood’ Goes Missing at Board Level

Governance in a Networked World

Board diversity has been a hot topic in the corporate world for some time now. Diversity is commonly interpreted as ‘more women on company boards’. So wouldn’t the ‘old girls network’ be the best vehicle for addressing the board diversity issue?

“But what about naysayers?”

Chris Corrigan

Complex problems (unknowable and ever changing problems and unpredictable but multiple emergent ways of addressing them). In complex problems like addressing social, cultural and economic systemic problems, no one has the right answer. For sure, the worst thing you can do in addressing complexity is create an agreeable environment that stifles conflicting views and difference. Diversity is required for a resilient and collectively intelligent approach.

Abstract: Tweet Tweet Retweet: Conversational Aspects of Retweeting on Twitter.

Collaborative Thinking

A structured analytical framework helps categorize the diverse use of retweeting and the implications it has as a conversation practice on authorship, attribution, and communicative fidelity. While a free form addressing syntax enables people to direct (“@”), group (“#”), and forward (“RT”) messages, such constructs remain imperfect. Since messages are bounded to that communication channel, message awareness and access is limited to people on its address list.
