WELCOM to the world's leaders Facebook

 

WELCOM   A few of the world's leaders (the auditorium doesn't look particularly packed) have gathered in Davos this morning to learn more about the World Economic Forum's new Sharepoint based social networking system, WELCOM.

It's been designed to help the participants connect and collaborate after the event and to help them give the world 'a fundamental reboot'.

Trust and Social Capital

 

    Just before Christmas, I reviewed David Thompson's new book, Trust Unwrapped.  Having a bit of time over the break, and seeing the growing importance of trust at the moment, I have also been reading another book on trust that I've been meaning to read for a few years: Francis Fukuyama, Trust: the social virtues and the creation of prosperity.

The book is really about national economies and cultures, but it makes some insightful points about trust and social capital which apply to organisational performance as well.

Collaboration in 2018

 

    Happy New Year.

You'll have seen many sets of predictions for the new year / following decade.  I'm not going to make any others, although I still think work will develop in the direction described by this, and my HCM blog.

However, I will reference Workforce magazine's predictions for 2018 (NASA's target date to return to the moon) which suggest that collaboration will be key by 2018.
