Digital Business Principle: 

The Internet of Things (#IoT) has rapidly become the next big thing. For the last 5 years, SocialTech has inexorably advanced from a cool new set of tools, through mainstream, and now into mandatory status. Meanwhile, the persistent question, “What’s next? What’s after Social?” has grown louder and louder. Clearly, circa 2015, the answer is #IoT and its intersection with Social, Mobile/Wearable/Cloud devices, #BigData and Human Dynamics.

Code Halos, by 3 Cognizant Leaders

Imagine

You’re in New York City and your lunch date cancels last minute. It’s 12:15pm and you sense an opportunity. Tapping your Code Halo Maps App, a search of nearby restaurants reveals where people in your Code Halo are currently eating. You look at the list. Two clients and one prospect are at Keens Steakhouse one block away. It also says that there’s a 75% chance another prospect will have lunch at Keens today. Keens is the place.  Read the rest of this entry »

Crowdsourcing the Meeting 

The Storify – some of the Social Media live from the meeting

The Tweetbinder – Social sharing stats, with only 10% of attendees sharing, still impressive

History

My first PIMA experience was the summer of 2005 at the Broadmoor, 10 years ago.  In promoting the brand new Blog, many inquired with a questioning look, “What’s a Blog?”. ☺ [See the original post here. Unfortunately the podcast doesn’t work. Rats!] Read the rest of this entry »

Joanna, so glad I saw your post. Very timely.

Sunset or Sunrise #Corporate #Future #SMAC

A Sunset or A Sunrise?

Just yesterday I had two separate, unrelated conversations with FinServ friends in CLE, one a rising star Millennial with a top-tier bank, and the other, a Web-savvy Boomer with a top-tier regional brokerage, both frustrated with their organization’s policy prohibiting the use of Social Media. The Millennial isn’t sure that his company, as much as he likes it, is the right place for him longer term. His concern is around his own professional growth in the context of a company whose actions, in spite of corporate words, clearly indicate that it doesn’t value staying current with technology and the culture it serves. The boomer spoke about the recent surge in turnover at the firm, good people in the middle of the org chart that are leaving because of inflexible policies around working from home and other cultural issues that cause them to not only see, but jump at other opportunities, and thus forcing the boomer to have to go to clients and introduce yet another client relationship manager, etc., etc., etc.

Your spot-on writing, and thanks for sharing, raises the issues. I’m going to write a bunch of stuff and then share this post with a bunch of people. I hope others do as well. It’s an urgent discussion. Read the rest of this entry »

In the insurance industry, there is SO MUCH energizing work to do to get ready for the next wave of technology heading our way. Re-inventing Web properties, getting serious about Social Properties, overhauling products given changing risk associated with advancing technology, developing an adaptive culture focused on learning and change, and so much more comes to mind.

In this context, I thought it might be helpful to discuss 10 Digital Business Must-Do’s in the next 24 months. Here’s my take. What are YOURS? I really want to know.

Meanwhile, I was asked to harness my time and talents for the benefit of an orphanage for Read the rest of this entry »
