Collaboration in large professional companies

March 23, 2008

Great podcast by David Maister:

David Maister

how to improve collaboration in large organizations.

‘I am going to read off a list of the “network collaboration” tactics that large multisite professional companies consider in attempting to induce more cooperation in their networks.

The top-tier tactics:

  1. Cross-staffing
  2. Rotation of staff
  3. Reorganize around people we want to collaborate more
  4. Information-sharing (Real-Time Knowledge Management) (…) ‘

In my opinion, Real-Time Knowledge Management is supported by Web 2.0 platforms.

David Maister video – ‘On Careers: Dynamos’

March 22, 2008

Great video on careers, management and coaching

On Careers: Dynamos 9:51

‘In this video clip we’re going to look at the issue of energy, excitement, and ambition in a different way and talk about the different states of drive that you and I might experience at different stages of our career.’

There are three catagories of people in your organization:

  • Dynamos
  • Cruisers
  • Losers’

‘Your job as a manager is to make sure that your people are excited about something’
