The Cost of No Decisions May Be Greater Than We Think
"Customers making the decision to do nothing implies that they may be making a smart choice–they aren’t confident they will succeed, so they put their energy elsewhere.

But we are seeing the opposite. It appears that confidence is contagious. As “failed” buying efforts multiple, confidence in other purchases that do happen seems to erode. What is causing this?"

The Power of Alternative Perspectives
"And yet, it’s easy to ignore. For example, the recognition of the value of diversity continues to grow–but can we quantify the impact? And do we integrate it into our processes? Maybe we make a focused effort to hire more women, or more minorities, or more experienced (older) people, or veterans–but what next? Embracing diversity is a mindset. But do you take the next step and integrate diversity into your practices (for example, making sure that review, brainstorming, and team efforts always include diverse participants? Do you look at how your technology (or if you even have technology) that helps make this easier to do–and to prove the value of? Do you ever invite people from other departments to product meetings?"

Lecko on collaboration and Microsoft on Teams at SMILE - by @dt
Consider me skeptical about the Yammer part... "Later in the day Rich Ellis of Microsoft talked with Marc about the new Teams product and how it fits in to their strategy. Rich was at Yammer before they were acquired, and was very clear in explaining that “Yammer is going nowhere!”. There were a few chuckles around the room, but he went on to explain Yammer is a key part of their strategy and onward development, providing broad collaboration across work groups. He commented that Satya (Nadella, the Microsoft CEO) jumps in to Yammer to connect and join in the conversations happening across the company."

We had the opportunity to attend the satellite location of the Microsoft Teams l... - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, Microsoft is.. Microsoft. Users who for whatever reason want to escape the vendor’s products will always be at hand. A lot of the success of the chat collaboration solutions has been the desire to ‘do less email’ – but ultimately everything gets pulled back to email. Thorough, deep innovation in email (Outlook) is what is the long game, if not the war for productivity suites. AI, Robots, voice all play a role to get business users to new productivity levels. By taking the fight to point solutions, Microsoft may lose the eye on the real prize – collaborative productivity across all channels that the 21st century knowledge worker needs."

Microsoft Teams and Slack point to the future of collaboration - by @dt
"Slack’s success highlights a key problem for our existing collaboration software options. They are more difficult to use than they should be. On top of that, the digital workplace is a mess. Alongside whatever we use for team collaboration, we access a whole host of disparate corporate systems with differing interfaces to get the job done. Slack has the ease of use and frictionless set up of the consumer apps we all used to on our smartphones and tablets."

11 Ways To Manage A Remote Team - by @scottgerber
"Some companies go for an all-remote approach, which brings its own challenges. Others have team members working in a central location alongside remote workers. It can be a special challenge to manage both a remote and an in-house team. With that in mind, I asked 11 business owners from YEC to share their own idea—from basic communication strategies to specific working processes—for managing remote workers."

You Want Disruption? Can You Handle it? - by @jeffnolan
"This is why I don’t think about disruption. The great case studies for disruption in our business are all a result of executing really well against an idea that was well conceived and not impaired by compromise. Disruption happens when you don’t have anything to lose, and in every case disruption is the result of bringing together extraordinary people unified by a sense of purpose. Put another way, disruption is not a strategy, it is a consequence."
