30min for your development #34

This playlist has very interesting content. We will start the readings with a paper to explore Organizational Culture and how by addressing its gaps organisations can increase its profit; following a reading from MIT about the AI and the Competitive Dynamics of Disruption and the last paper talks about Remote Work and how the global pandemic is changing the way organisations approach to it. We also have courses in Innovation and Resilience, two topics to prepare yourself for when the pandemic ends. Finally, a selection to learn from experts about working remotely, those people have been always working remotely and now we can learn from their experiences. Now that majority of us stay at home we can spend time in our development. “Self 2.0”.


When Culture Makers Lead

A new report from Accenture reveals that there’s a substantial gap between what leaders think is going on in workplace culture and what employees say is actually happening — and that organizations could see a $3.7 trillion increase in global profits by halving the gap. Other notable findings: The proportion of employees who do not feel included in their organizations is a whopping 10 times higher than leaders believe, and younger employees are more concerned than older workers about workplace culture.

The New Competitive Dynamics of Disruption

In the age of AI, traditional businesses are under attack from highly scalable, data-driven companies. As Harvard Business School professors Marco Iansiti and Karim Lakhani put it, “The collisions between innovators and established players are forcing leaders of existing companies to reexamine how they do business in environments where new players follow radically different rules.”

The Coronavirus May Transform Remote Work — And Not Temporarily

As the number of COVID-19 cases rises worldwide, companies previously reluctant to embrace remote work arrangements are now being forced to rethink their approaches. Each day brings news of more companies promoting remote work amid the coronavirus crisis — but once the virus wanes, the return to onsite work may be slow, if it happens at all.
