Cultural difference in business | Valerie Hoeks | TEDxHaarlem
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. One of the elements of the cultural difference between Europe and China is the importance that is given to relationships. In the West you would assume the importance to be the same, but there is a significant distinction. In China connections with the right people help you to get things done, to survive and to succeed. Whereas in the West content is predominant, in China the way people interact with each other strongly influences the working environment. 'Face' and long-term effects are taken into consideration. Valérie Hoeks (1982) studied Sinology at the Leiden University and has been active in China for over a decade as a traveller, a student and later as an entrepreneur. As soon as she set foot on Chinese soil she knew she would come back many times. In 2010 Valérie co-founded China Inroads in collaboration with with her Dutch and Chinese business partner. China Inroads provides a strong foothold for innovative companies that want to expand their business to the Chinese market.

Portfolio Analysis and Management with Decision Strategies
http://www.DecisionStrategies.com Bill Haskett, Senior Principal of Energy Strategy at Decision Strategies, addresses attendees of a portfolio analysis and management workshop. To develop successful portfolio management strategies, whether it’s to manage a set of business units, assets, or technologies you must understand two basic concepts. First, a portfolio is a mix of opportunities and risks. Second, business units and assets must be aligned to support your company’s overarching strategic goals. Viewing a portfolio as a set of independent entities leads to missed opportunities and maximize reduction in the value the portfolio provides to the organization. Decision Strategies helps you: Identify, evaluate, and manage risk, uncertainty and opportunities Align portfolio strategies with the overall business strategy Balance multiple objectives Maximize efficient use of resources (people, capital, materials, etc.) Create and maintain competitive advantages Focus and align efforts through communication of priorities Establish an objective process for selection decisions Maximize portfolio value Bill Haskett Bill is a Senior Principal based out of Decision Strategies’ Houston office and is the proud recipient of the 2012 SPE International Award for Management and Information.

Cross-Functional teams
Cross Functional Teams in Project Management Imagine a strategic plan by the CEO of a car manufacturer to come up with an answer to a new product introduced by his competitor. The competitor has built a new car that runs on electric batteries. The CEO starts this endeavor by meeting with the engineers to come up with a prototype for his new car. Months go by until the prototype is created. After the engineering department is done with its part, the finance department has to estimate what the costs would be involved in such a project. Raw materials, labor and other costs are estimated and more time passes by. The finance department then hands off the data to the marketing department which does a competitive analysis. Department after department does their part as this initiative takes months to research, analyze and bring online. In fact it takes so long that by the time the company is ready to build this car on its assembly line the market trend has changed and now cars that run on solar power are the new trend. The project is cancelled. What's an alternative to this sequential approach? How to Manage Cross Functional Teams? I'm Nathan Ellison (please view my website www.nathanellison.com ). And today I will be discussing cross-functional teams and why they are a better approach than the scenario I just described. Let's imagine a different scenario. In this approach the CEO assembles a cross-functional team and becomes a sponsor for his appointed project manager. He charters a team formed with representatives of the engineering, finance, marketing and any other specialty needed for this product launch. From day one members of this team are collaborating. What is the best practice in Creating Cross Functional Teams or Keys to Effective Cross Functional Teams? The CEO is feeling awfully good about his new approach. There are a number of advantages with a cross-functional team. The primary advantage is speed. Rather than the initiative getting stuck in a department until it's ready to move on to the next department, all technical experts are exposed to the challenge at the same time bringing the breadth of skills and experiences from such a diverse group. The team members are no longer restricted to brainstorming within their own departments but can now have their ideas evaluated by technical experts in other disciplines. For example, engineers are made aware of customer preferences by the marketing and sales department. The Marketing and sales department are learning about costs and product variations from the engineers and financial analysts on the team. The CEO and project manager soon learn that cross-functional teams do not come without their drawbacks though. One of the challenges of cross-functional teams is that because these teams are constructed of such diverse specialties any poor interpersonal skills are amplified. Suddenly, members of these groups are required to figure out solutions with their colleagues who have completely different specializations, different ranks and perspectives? One solution to these issues might be in how work is rewarded. Instead of giving awards and incentives to staff for individual performance as is the case at many organizations, organizations would benefit from rewarding team members for sharing information and collaborating. As a project manager, try to persuade your sponsor to consider rewarding team members for being good team players. Another solution might be to set ground rules: Ground rules could be about: How team meetings should be conducted. For example, how often and on what days are meetings conducted? Would meetings be daily scrum meetings which are more common in Agile methodologies or would they be more traditional with action items and meeting minutes? The CEO and project manager also find out from the functional managers that another challenge with cross-functional teams is that team members have competing responsibilities. What are the Challenges with Cross Functional Teams? These team members are reluctant to participate on the team because they still have deadlines and responsibilities to their functional departments. As a project manager you need to negotiate with functional managers to reserve time slots for work that their staff needs to accomplish for the cross-functional team. Remember in every team interaction there are challenges to overcome and cross functional teams are no different. However for many projects, the benefits of cross functional teams out way the obstacles. I hope you've enjoyed my webcast on cross-functional teams. If you'd like to see my other webcasts you can visit me on my website: www.Nathanellison.com Thank you. Sincerely, Nathan Ellison

Introduction to Lean Six Sigma Methodology
LEAN SIX SIGMA is a management concept used to effectively improve business processes based on the combination of the different tools & principles of Lean and Six Sigma. Organizations face rising costs and increasing competition every day. Those ones that implement Lean Six Sigma correctly, achieve significant benefits that contribute to competitive advantage and to changing the culture in an organization from reactive problem solving to proactive problem prevention. Specifically, the proven benefits are diverse. First, Lean Six Sigma achieves faster processes by removing all forms of non-value added work according to the seven types of waste. Secondly, Lean Six Sigma aims to realize higher quality in terms of process stability and capability through the reduction of variation and the elimination of defects. Since the methodology involves a strong focus on customer needs and requirements, another significant benefit of using the tools and concepts of Lean Six Sigma is an increase in customer satisfaction. But the primary desired benefit of all process improvement activities within the scope of Lean Six Sigma is a reduction in costs. By achieving streamlined processes that are completed faster and more efficiently, less resources are required, resulting in decreased costs. In addition, less variation and defects lead to less cost of poor quality. Cost of poor quality includes costs that arise due to the gap between the desired and actual product or service quality. On the other hand, Lean Six Sigma increases revenue by enabling an organization to do more with less. Finally, a major benefit of Lean Six Sigma is an increase in employee engagement and effectiveness. Lean Six Sigma not only reduces costs and increases revenue, it positively affects people by engaging them in improving the way they work. By involving employees in Lean Six Sigma projects, they gain a greater appreciation for the impact of the work they do on bottom-line business results, as well as an appreciation for how the work of other employees and departments also contribute to success. And once employees get comfortable with Lean Six Sigma skills learned through trainings or projects, they can proactively continue to improve their business processes based on a well-established methodology.

Gallup’s Q12 Survey Predicts the Performance Outcomes That Matter Most
The following is an excerpt from Gallup’s 2013 State of the Global Workplace report: Gallup measures employee engagement based on workers’ responses to the Q12 survey, which consists of 12 actionable workplace elements with proven links to performance outcomes. To identify these elements, Gallup spent years conducting thousands of interviews at every level of various organizations, in most industries, and in several countries. Since Gallup finalized the Q12 question wording in the late 1990s, the survey has been administered to more than 25 million employees in 189 different countries and 69 languages. The 12 questions emerged from Gallup’s pioneering research as the best predictors of employee and workgroup performance. Although measuring employee engagement is an increasingly common practice, Gallup’s Q12 employee engagement metric is distinct in that it is backed by rigorous science linking it to nine integral performance outcomes. Gallup administers the Q12 to workers in various companies, nonprofits, and other organizations worldwide in an effort to help its clients improve their employee engagement. Meanwhile, Gallup researchers continually study findings from research on the Q12 to learn more about employee engagement’s impact on organizational and team performance. Every two to four years Gallup completes meta-analysis research — a statistical technique that pools multiple studies — on the Q12. By conducting this research regularly over time and increasing the number of business units analyzed, Gallup stays on the cutting edge of how well employee engagement predicts key performance outcomes. When sample sizes allow, Gallup establishes links to new outcomes that companies can measure and manage to drive organizational performance through employee engagement. Gallup knows of no other company that backs its employee engagement survey with such extensive research. In 2012, Gallup conducted its eighth meta-analysis on the Q12 using 263 research studies across 192 organizations in 49 industries and 34 countries. Within each study, Gallup researchers statistically calculated the business/work-unit-level relationship between employee engagement and performance outcomes that the organization supplied. Researchers studied 49,928 business/work units, including nearly 1.4 million employees. This eighth iteration of the meta-analysis further confirmed the well-established connection between employee engagement and nine performance outcomes. The 2012 meta-analysis once again verified that employee engagement relates to each of the nine performance outcomes studied. Additionally, Gallup continues to find that the strong correlations between engagement and the nine outcomes studied are highly consistent across different organizations from diverse industries and regions of the world. Visit https://q12.gallup.com/?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=12-questions-video&utm_campaign=Q12-YouTube to learn more about the Q12 survey and how it helps companies measure & manage engagement.

Leadership in a Complex and Uncertain Environment
Accenture research on business agility shows that leaders stand apart from other companies on nearly every dimension of agility—they actively build seasoned and diverse management teams, prioritize strategic decisions, speed up decision making, prepare their ecosystems to act quickly, and invest in and use analytics to run their organizations. As part of this research we asked industry leaders to share their thoughts on traits of truly agile businesses. The issue of globalization is big for businesses today and, for leaders, it means addressing numerous challenges in an uncertain and complex environment.

Professor Mauro Guillén: Isomorphism, impermeability, and institutional diversity
Held in conjunction with Oxford University Press, the Clarendon Lectures are designed to inform a general academic audience of important issues in management and the social sciences. Mauro Guillén presents The Architecture of Collapse: The Global System in the 21st Century The global system is both highly structured and predictable. And yet, crises and other episodes of abrupt change do occur rather frequently. These three lectures will develop a new theoretical framework to think about the evolution of the global system in terms of its interactive complexity and degree of coupling. These two variables will be examined at the level of the global network of nation-states, and within countries. Economic, political and social factors will be taken into consideration when it comes to assessing the structure of the global system and its evolution over time. The lectures will show how management theory and organizational sociology can be used to understand dynamics at the global level. Lecture 3 - Isomorphism, Impermeability, and Institutional Diversity Are isomorphic forces taking over the world? To what extent are nodes in the global system impermeable to them? What are the implications for institutional diversity? In this third lecture Professor Guillen will review the evidence when it comes to institutional convergence in form and in outcomes. He will introduce the concept of "impermeability" to account for different rates of institutional diffusion across national boundaries. He will use a variety of empirical examples to illustrate the problem, focusing on central bank independence and minority shareholder protections. He will also show that the world is not getting smaller, but actually more diverse.

Andy Hargreaves - Uplifting Leadership
What does it take to do more with less? How can you do better than before, or better than others? How do you turn losses into wins, or near-bankruptcy into strong profitability, or abject failure into stellar success? The power of uplift enables any organization to do more with less, beat the competition, and perform better than ever. Leaders who uplift their employees' passions, intellects, and commitments produce remarkable results. Based on original research from a seven-year global study, Uplifting Leadership reveals how leaders from diverse organizations inspired and uplifted their teams' performance. Distilling the six common characteristics of leaders at high-performing organizations across business, sports, and education, authors Andy Hargreaves, Alan Boyle, and Alma Harris explore the nature of uplift, its impact on performance, and the ways to achieve it within and beyond an organization's walls, revealing how leaders: Identify and articulate an inspiring dream that is coherently connected to the best of what the organization has been before Pursue that dream at a sustainable pace without squandering resources, incurring excessive debt, or burning people out Forge paths of innovation and improvement that others have overlooked or rejected Monitor progress by using metrics and indicators in a mindful and meaningful way Build teams that naturally pull people into change rather than pushing them through it Featuring case studies of organizations as diverse as Shoebuy.com, Fiat, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Marks & Spencer, Cricket Australia, Burnley Football Club, and the Vancouver Giants, as well as world-leading educational systems, Uplifting Leadership provides tools for leaders to incorporate these performance-driving strategies into their own. For leaders who want their people to try harder, transform what they do, reach for a higher purpose, and stay resolute and resilient when opposing forces threaten to defeat them, Uplifting Leadership provides a path to better performance across any organization. ANDY HARGREAVES is the Thomas More Brennan Chair in Education at Boston College. In 2014, he was ranked as one of the 12 most influential scholars on US public education policy. He has written or edited more than 25 books on leadership and change, including Sustainable Leadership (with Dean Fink) and Professional Capital (with Michael Fullan).

Enterprise Project and Social Work Management- A New Generation: Webinar Series 1 of 4
Recent trends have shown that businesses must embrace a new generation where employee engagement is crucial to the organization's success.  We must now foster a technology-driven work environment that closely mimics the social experiences that employees have outside of work.  As employees are empowered to share their knowledge, build relationships, execute on work in the way that works best for them, and act as community leaders and key contributors, businesses will begin to see that engaged employees produce more value.  They identify with corporate goals and care about business results.    How do organizations align with this new trend without introducing risks commonly associated to a behavioral shift across the workforce?  Organizations from all over the world are looking for Enterprise Project and Social Work Management platforms that support their diverse teams and promote collaboration and efficiencies across the business. These platforms offer a broad set of functionality allowing users the ability to create, organize and share information, as well as find, connect and interact with each other.   There are many benefits to adopting social disciplines across projects and work, but where do you get started and how do you gain adoption across your organization? Join EPM Live as we explore the ins and outs of Enterprise Project and Social Work Management in a 4 part series introducing the following topics:   1. Enterprise Project and Social Work Management begins with Community- Tips, tools and best practices for building communities within your organization.  2. Critical Capabilities Needed to Ensure Enterprise Project and Social Work Management Success- Social capabilities that are integrated with work processes and projects.  3. Social Collaboration Maturity Model- A roadmap to success; adopting to a new generation at a low risk pace. 4. Social Project Management- What is it and how is it changing the way we work today?
