How best should IT and business executives close the gap on digital transformation? The two groups that have to come together to bring their organizations' into the future need to combine their strengths, resolve misalignment, plug key holes in their competencies. Here's how enterprises might do just exactly that (I also cite some recent concrete examples.)

http://www.zdnet.com/article/closing-the-gap-between-executives-and-digital-transformation
Summary:The two groups that must come together and bring their organizations into the digital future -- technology and business leadership -- tend to have divergent priorities and inclinations. How can we resolve this?

What Skills Does the Workforce of Tomorrow Need in the Digital Age? A very new and different set of abilities that we really haven't seen before. Here's my latest analysis of what it will take to thrive in the next-generation enterprise.

I also cite the excellent work of +Andrew McAfee +Jane McConnell +Harold Jarche +John Stepper  for their ideas in framing up this perspective.

More broadly my modest quibbles were driving towards the the incisive, time-tested aphorism of Marshal McLuhan, et al, to wit, 

"We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us."

This is particularly true in today's headlong flight to the digital enterprise.

To paraphrase Gibson, the digital enterprise is already here, just not evenly distributed. 

Again, IMHO the washouts won't be due to a skill deficit, but from a pernicious leadership vacuum.

People want to work in their preferred channels for sure. And it will be one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century for company's to be in all the places their customers want them. Unfortunately, that means #omnichannel for most organizations actually means #essentialchannel. cc +Brian Solis 
 
A new piece I wrote for Forbes on #omnichannel  vs. #DigitalRelevance. Hope you find it interesting! 
This article is by Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter Group. CMOs are prioritizing mobile customer experiences because they have to. Mobile is after all only becoming more pervasive in the digital customer journey. Accordingly, CMOs have widely accepted a “mobile first”-design mindset when approaching campaigns and other important digital initiatives. [...]

Bertrand suggests that we've reached the limits on what organizations can achieve with enterprise social networks as they stand. I tend to agree and would suggest that the monoculture of top platforms is part of the issue. Lack of enlightened leaders too. But it's really not as bad as all that. In my work, I see that many organizations are just getting work done with #socbiz tools of all kinds and not going out of their way to tout it.
 
[New Post] Collaboration in 2015 : between email and new interfaces

Email is dead, long live email. If many announcements were made in 2014 regarding to collaboration solutions, I guess few people had predicted that the rock star of the year would be the good old email we’ve been trying to eradicate for the last 8 years.…

Fascinating. Ive had an autonomous driven car for years : my wife always drives. She's a terrible passenger. Which meant that on holiday trips, i controlled the music, games, food, and general entertainment. Plus i got to look at the sights as we drove by'. I love it. Bring on the revolution.

What should boards of directors do today to address the pervasive shift to #digital? The gap between what companies need to do and what they are prepared to do is widening rapidly. For several key reasons, boards are the least aligned with this imperative, compared to most of the C-Suite. This is my latest analysis of how the trends are shaping up and what corporate leaders can do today to accelerate real change:

Self-driving cars are no more than a decade away. What other tech will operate autonomously? Planes? Trains? Ships? Armies? Governments?
 
Self-driving cars disrupt a lot of folks, this list, may surprise you.

Yesterday, I went to think tank event in Palo Alto on self-driving cars, at SVForum with experts from all over tech, auto, and investment space, it was concluded by most that self-driving cars will start to roll out in 5-10 years. Car sharing and ride sharing is teaching us, we don't need to "own" cars to get where we need to go, this paves the road, for autonomous vehicles to enter society.

Here's an (in)complete list of who's disrupted:

-Taxis compete with Uber, Google, Apple self-driving cars. Ride sharing was just the first blow.

-Ride sharing drivers at Uber, Lyft, Sidecar, BlaBlaCar will be disrupted as autonomous cars do a safer job at lower cost.

-Local couriers, like TaskRabbit, Instacart and bike messengers will be impacted.

-Mid range and long range transportation and delivery services would be impacted as local delivery becomes automated.

-Retailers may see a change in foot traffic as people order goods to be delivered to their homes by driverless cars.

-Auto and life insurance should be impacted, due to fewer accidents and the introduction of per-mile-based insurance.

-Paramedics may be impacted if victims choose self-driving cars to whisk them to ER for less than severe injuries.

-Car ownership could dwindle. Self-driving cars means fewer cars will be needed, as they’re efficiently routed as needed.

-Airbnb may benefits as urban areas convert garage spaces into living areas for short term stays.

-The parking industry could suffer, as lots are converted to other uses.

-Parking fines and local taxes could dwindle with fewer cars on road and robotic efficiency.

-Radio and podcasts could become less popular, as people play video games and watch videos in the self-driving rides.

-Short distance airlines could be suffer, as people choose to take a relaxing trip in a mobile living room.

-Communities or attractions not connected by rail could prosper as people easily travel there for business or pleasure.

-Auto repair could be impacted as self-driving cars automatically head for maintenance without the driver or owner present.

-Auto manufacturers are disrupted, as people use ride-sharing apps to summon vehicles on demand, in lieu of ownership.

-Hotels and motels could be affected as families are able to sleep in the comfort of a self-driven vehicle on the way to their destination.

Leave a comment, below, on who else might be disrupted.

We've come a long way with social business over the last half decade. We're now seeing a good number of large organizations get fully networked and really start rethinking their businesses, while getting measurable results. But for the rest of us, where should we be aiming our efforts to maximize shared value and make work more natural, human, and effective today? Here are the three major categories of value that I've found in my work.
Recently, I had the need to gather our latest research from research, clients, and case studies on the established performance of social business for the Future of Work master class I delivered in ...

Are you involved in online communities? If so, please contribute to +Rachel Happe's 2015 State of Community Management Survey, which just opened up.

The survey is one of the most vital resources we have to determine value, ROI, and get #cmgr teams what they need to succeed. I'm also involved this year and will be writing up what's uncovered on ZDNet and elsewhere. #socbiz

What is digital business? As we see an industry resurgence, at least from the traditional enterprise world, in seriously shifting to digital business, we are increasingly asked to define what exactly it means. Today, we see that digital business goes far beyond transactional capabilities like e-commerce. Here's my latest examination of what digital business actually consists of today:
