Manufacturing Reboots Talent Engine In A New Age Of Digital Disruption – via Techcrunch

Whether a company makes clothing, household cleaning products, cars, healthcare or nearly anything else, it needs people with the right skills. Like other businesses, today’s manufacturers are going digital; operating in an era of change and volatility that has made flexibility critical to their success.

skills

[…] Companies need to place a greater emphasis on defining what skills their organization needs. These requirements can include any combination of technical expertise, professional certifications, previous work experience and so-called “soft skills,” including communications and leadership skills.

However, it is important for companies to remain realistic throughout this process and consider that it may not be possible for one candidate to possess all of the skills they are seeking. In that case, it may be more important to identify reliable, hardworking, inquisitive people who demonstrate a work ethic, willingness to learn and the flexibility to adapt in a changing work environment.

Once companies have a firm sense of the skills they desire, there are two main ways to go about cultivating talent: Tap the power of an organization’s existing workforce and build those skills from within, or develop new talent externally with a trusted network of partners.

Of course, developing skills, whether internally or externally, requires a company to make a significant investment. The skills gap took years to emerge and it will not be fixed overnight.

Addressing the situation is important. Disrupters play the stronger offensive game in today’s volatile business environment. Talent can play an important role in helping companies execute that offensive strategy. But only with the right skills for a new business reality on the offensive team can a company swiftly respond to changes as they arise in today’s global business world.

Build an Innovation Engine in 90 Days – HBR

Practically every company innovates.But few do so in an orderly, reliable way.

R1412C_A

In far too many organizations, the big breakthroughs happen despite the company. Successful innovations typically follow invisible development paths and require acts of individual heroism or a heavy dose of serendipity. Successive efforts to jump-start innovation through, say, hack-a-thons, cash prizes for inventive concepts, and on-again, off-again task forces frequently prove fruitless. Great ideas remain captive in the heads of employees, innovation initiatives take way too long, and the ideas that are developed are not necessarily the best efforts or the best fit with strategic priorities.

There’s an important intermediate option between ad hoc innovation and building an elaborate, large-scale innovation factory: setting up a minimum viable innovation system (MVIS).

What it will require is senior management attention—most critically from some member of the top leadership team.

Creating an MVIS won’t miraculously turn you into Pixar or Amazon, but it will help you make tangible progress in increasing the predictability and productivity of critical investments in future growth.

Why Bureaucracy Must Die – Forbes -HBR

A terrible epidemic, writes business guru Gary Hamel in a pair of articles in Harvard Business Review, is afflicting a large part of the human race. Its name isn’t Ebola. It’s called bureaucracy.

Burocracy-URN-Sardinnya

“Strategy gets set at the top. Power trickles down. Big leaders appoint little leaders. Individuals compete for promotion. Compensation correlates with rank. Tasks are assigned. Managers assess performance. Rules tightly circumscribe discretion.

Bureaucracy “constitutes the operating system for virtually every large-scale organization on the planet. It is the unchallenged tenets of bureaucracy that disable our organizations.”

It is akin to Soviet-style centralization, gripped by“the ideology of controlism”and “is the enemy of resilience… If they are unwilling to adapt and learn, the entire organization stalls”. It’s hostile to “the irregular people with irregular ideas who create the irregular business models that generate the irregular returns,” and so “cripples organizational vitality.” It “shrinks our incentive to dream, imagine and contribute.” It causes our organizations to “remain incompetent at their core.”

“We need challenge common beliefs and ingrained interests. We need to stop pulling each other down by the tail and instead build up our ideas together.” Nilofer Merchant, a writer and entrepreneur and a lecturer at Stanford, says.

Today, technology is creating human challenges.

Today, says Nayar, “the winning formula has become: Innovative Ideas + Delivering Unique Experiences + Enabling Leadership.
