About the challenges of staying open and having an environment build on trust and knowledge of each other. Yesterday, in a discussion with our homeschooling friends we talked about schools. About socialisation as a big part of what happens in a school, even when everyone talks that schools are about education.

Collaborative Thinking

Fusing internal and external thinking and approaches towards innovation has become more the norm, leading to an “innovation renaissance” influenced by social media trends. However, contributions from non-traditional participants (customers, employees) presents its own set of challenges in terms of community management, decision-rights, and business alignment.

Well, yes, kinda, sorta, Pat

Endless Knots

A fawning post on another blog led me to Lencioni's short piece on the three blunders of virtual teams , in his view: they underestimate the challenge of being virtual; they waste their face-to-face time socializing too much and/or going over details; and they don't know how to hold good conference calls. In all my days in this field, I've yet to meet a team that UNDERestimated the challenges of being virtual.
