Management's biggest fear is disruption or biggest opportunity?  Disruption is a leadership trait for emotional intelligence not antagonism.
The BBC's Elizabeth Hotson explores the latest business buzz phrase -

Dumb, data-driven, marketing decisions, poker, and 7th grade math, what do they have in common?

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.

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.

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.

"Almost everything IT does can be considered a project -- from hardware and software upgrades to ongoing security patches, virus scanning and spam filtering to application development and rollout itself."

Here are the top 10 project management certifications.  I never knew there were 10, whither PRINCE2?

This looks like a real good book, best wishes.
Most attempts to scale Agile struggle because the IT leadership attempts to scale up (vertical) rather than scale out (horizontal). Scale-up is old school management. It involves context-free management by numbers, standardiz...

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

Words coming at you with an operatic singer does me in.  I would have loved full orchestral versions to flesh out the arrangements that The Who layered.

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.
