Secrets you know you know but were afraid to acknowledge to your sponsor.

Now you can get ahead with this great playbook on #Agile change, scope, and time management.
Agile project management is no longer just for software projects, find out the reasons why agile works for traditional projects that most don't know.

Being social is about being connected. Too many look at an intranet as a shared drive, not a shared experience.

Very good deck sharing possibilities.
Within the next 10 years, the workplace will change. The workforce will decline, more work need to be done with less people. The Work-Life-Balance will be a status-symbol. Companies won't recruit workers, but workers recruit companies. The Social Intranet helps with the transition to the future workplace where a flexible workforce (where and when I work) and shared knowledge is made possible.

Nice client-friendly overview and talking/tracking points
 
5 Things Business Owners Should Look for in Google Analytics

"Google Analytics reporting for business owners has become some kind of digital enigma to many, which is understandable considering the vast amount of data in the dashboard.

Traffic, funnels, tracking codes- it’s a lot to handle for the average human which is why we’ve taken the top pieces of data in Google Analytics and explained why its important, what it tells you and what it doesn’t tell you."
Google Analytics has a ton of data available, but what's really important? Here are 5 things you should be paying attention to in GA.

Inbound marketing drives change from outside in, to get it right, organizations need to reengineer from inside out

To meet new metrics, new models, and new capabilities marketing reengineering requires a new approach to both external, customer relationships and internal, company relationships.

#Projects rely on teams. Teams need an easy way to collaborate, not a chore of process/procedure. Don't let IT design your project portal, tell IT what you need instead.

Here's a list of #SharePoint tools to get a handle on what's possible to design what's needed.

Great review, thanks. Went and bought it and listen to not missing Keith Moon, but your review comments along with the album, funny stuff.

Thanks a lot Toby, it was a great listen, would have been nice to have had Daltrey make an appearance to liven things up maybe. Glad you enjoyed and really hope you subscribe for more!

A lecture is not effective training. A good deck to share with IT 
There is a science when it comes to learning. Dr. Britt Andreatta shares the latest research from top scientists at Harvard, Stanford, University of Wisconsin, and New York University––on how the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system work together to create and retain new knowledge and skills.

#OneNote is a great sync and share app. Top-notch #Microsoft tool for #PC and #Mac with smart phone apps.

I am not used to a Microsoft product with good users's experience, perhaps #UX is making inroads.

Why digital is forcing IT to rethink infrastructure http://shar.es/1fDeJ4

#InformationTechnology should not be forced back to relevance, but enable the business capability.

But I appreciate #IT preparing (provisioning) the table.
Changing customer behaviour, driven by explosive growth in mobile, social, data and cloud, is radically transforming IT infrastructure

Is your service value perception same as your customers? Here's a +Deloitte  study shows self-rater bias is alive in your company as much as in individuals. 

Perception is always the easiest path for lazy people to collect data.

The results indicate that outsourcing as a business practice continues to see growth across all functions surveyed
