Sustainability might not be sexy, but life depends on it
"That’s 5 million units a year, all which generate data, and all of which need energy and resources in their creation. Chris suggests that by 2030 most people will have 15 devices, all generating data because “everything computes at the edge and everywhere”. He’s seen research that suggests we will run out of gold by 2030. Yikes!"

The State of Recruiting Technology in 2019 — A Year of Consolidation, Growth & Innovation
"Oracle and IBM, in particular, are hemorrhaging market share (see above) and customers are now demanding that their core recruiting platforms do more than just process applicants. They must also become global marketing platforms that engage their audience (i.e. candidates), drive corporate initiatives such as diversity and inclusion, and support career and pay progression."

Google’s arrogance on display: burying the lede about its Google+ vulnerability and shutdown
"Google announced it would shut down its social network Google+ yesterday after revealing that it had given outside developers access to private data. At least that’s how the media is describing it. Google’s own statement just buries the news amid a whole bunch of other announcements, like a radioactive pellet"

Empty calories in the Whole Foods letter about becoming part of Amazon
"Whole Foods has loyal, upscale customers who might be nervous about its acquisition by Amazon, so the company sent people a reassuring letter by email. It’s one of the most vacuous communications I’ve ever read."

Uber just ensured that their toxic culture will persist - by @jbernoff
"Uber’s culture is aggressive with questionable ethics. Yesterday they announced the reforms they will make, and also said CEO Travis Kalanick would take a leave. Kalanick’s leave will ensure that none of the proposed cultural changes will happen."

Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s future: the spirit is willing, but the algorithm is weak - by @jbernoff
Great freaking blog title... "Analysis: Zuckerberg correctly cites filter bubbles and fake news as the big problems which may metastasize, as he suggests, into sensational, polarized conversation. He’s moved well beyond the statement minimizing the fake news problem that won the Bullshitty Award for most outrageous public statement by a corporate spokesperson. But Facebook moves carefully when shifting its algorithm, because such changes create not just public criticism, but shifts in member satisfaction and potentially, revenue."

Gartner Purchase of Corporate Executive Board Would Address Changes in IT Advisory Market
"Despite their big advantages, the big IT analyst shops face disruption. They face perpetual accusations of pay-for-play bias. Many techies say they know more about the topics than the analyst briefing them. A three-part podcast hosted by Kea Company describes how many smaller companies address these shortcomings."

Direct Material Woes: Seven Steps to Take to Improve Value - by @lcecere
"Today, less than one-in-four purchase orders are processed hands free. Minimize the time for vendor set-up and ensure that vendors can get the data they need. At one A&D manufacturer that I work with, they staff a hot line with an experienced engineer to answer quality of design questions from suppliers directly with experts. The focus is on making it easy for the supplier to get the right answers. Analyze your current processes."

6 reasons why an executive should care about writing without bullshit - by @jbernoff
"Every time you send an email, publish a policy, or write a report that’s full of equivocation, jargon that obscures meaning, and passive voice that hides responsibility, you are reinforcing a culture of obfuscation. Every time someone reads such a document, they think, “Ah, the people who run this company are full of bullshit.”

How Corporations Can Manage New Ventures and University Projects as Extensions of their Advanced Product Development - by @esimoudies
"Large corporations and small firms and even university projects are symbiotic, but there are natural barriers that keep them from working together. While this is a larger issue to solve with education and research, for action-oriented firms, the issues are really more about timing, building relationship, and overall portfolio based tracking."

"Business is all about getting the work done and the work is a flow. Most of our organiations have vertical application silos – ERP, CRM, Email, HR, Document Management and more. Then we are adding enterprise social networks like Jive, or extra collaboration tools like Slack. The digital workplace is getting more complex"

Lessons from the Dan Lyons HubSpot fable “Disrupted” - by @jbernoff

Mossberg: How to make Slack better
"Almost every single colleague with whom I spoke put threading of Slack posts at or near the top of their lists of desired features. Why? Well, today, a Slack interchange is kind of like conversing in an AOL chat room from the 1990s. You’ll be discussing topic A with a person or a few people, when somebody else suddenly introduces a totally unrelated topic B, and a third introduces topic C. Attention keeps shifting among them, and none comes to a logical resolution as quickly as it might."

The Automotive Industry’s Big Data Challenge (Part 2) - by @esimoudis
"There is significant fragmentation in the automotive world regarding data ownership. Automakers are not eager to share the data they have been collecting. Service providers in the automotive value chain have taken a similar approach. As a result, while we may have the opportunity to start establishing rich data value chains, we are not doing it."

The Automotive Industry’s Big Data Challenge (Part 1) - by @esimoudis
"In the not too distant future, automakers won’t be evaluated just on the physical, safety and performance characteristics of their vehicles. Instead incumbent and next-generation automakers will be evaluated based on the completeness of their solution along five dimensions: Electric, Autonomous, Connected, Mobility Services (EAC+MS), and Information."

How to Avoid Innovation Theater: The Six Decisions To Make Before Establishing an Innovation Outpost - by @esimoudis
"Establishing an outpost enables innovation but does not constitute innovation. Once a company has decided to open an Innovation Outpost, it has to choose: 1) how do they to leverage startup innovation in the cluster – will the outpost invest, partner, acquire, incubate or invent? And 2) what is the timeline to an ROI for Innovation Outpost? Again, the participation of the senior executives in these decisions is critical."

Seven Signs of Corporate Innovation Culture - by @esimoudis
"Based on my experience from the startups I built as an entrepreneur and the ones I funded over the past 15 years as a VC, I always claim that a company’s culture is defined by the first 10 employees, starting with the startup’s founders. Corporate culture is driven by leadership (and here); is based on performance management; and can only be achieved if there exists a common vocabulary among the individuals that live it."
