Using Video to Reach the Distracted Millennial Man

KZO Innovations

With 70% of millennial men using social networking sites, according to Nielsen, the opportunity is clear. The endless torrent of posts across social channels can help people discover – or rediscover – that video. Millennial males spend 2 hours and 15 minutes a week watching videos online, according to Nielsen, which is more than any other demographic. If you’re marketing to younger men, a robust online video strategy should definitely be part of the plan.

How to replace top-down training with collaborative learning (1)

Jay Cross

Businesses around the world are transforming into extended enterprise networks but their training departments are stuck in the previous century. They have to keep up with a torrent of new products and services, not just their own but also their competitors’. To keep things simple in our following exploration of how corporate learning needs to change, let’s call the industrial-age (old school) companies Hierarchical and the network-era (2012) companies Collaborative.

How do I talk to my IT department?

Trajectory IQ

If an existing project is already in your network, IT will have a hard time countering a similar approach. Assume that they don’t have time to listen — this is quite often the case because someone is ALWAYS troubleshooting a “critical security issue” or maybe they’re busy downloading an illegal torrent file (true story). Chip the IT Guy — Source: [link] Dumpster fire. Train wreck. Nightmare.

Sun, Elite, and the future

Jay Cross

They’re adept at keeping up with torrents of information, volatile situations, extreme flexibility, and real-time responsiveness. What we’re really doing is building networks to help us all work more effectively. College kids are different these days. Awash in multiple distractions, most have the attention spans of gnats. They lack the discipline to put in the hard work to learn things the way you and I did when we were in school.

Weapon of mass detraction

Learning with e's

On the conference's social network site the conference backchannel tool Twitter is announced as "what it means to embrace a truly free and open stream of communication in the digital age." Very quickly the harsh comments began to pop up on the Twitter stream, and very soon they became a torrent of abuse, disparaging remarks that took on a more and more personal hue, turning the event into a 'car crash keynote'. It became a phenomenon in 2009. No, not Twitter.

70 years on and still relevant: The Sabre-Toothed Future

Charles Jennings

Some of the younger men of the New-Fist breed forgot what they had been taught in their formal training, began to think in a radical and practical manner and developed new ways to catch fish (one even developed a NET - a NETWORK wouldn’t be far away, I’m sure). It is something that endures through changing conditions like a solid rock, standing firmly in the middle of a raging torrent.” This first post is a long one. I certainly expect my regular jottings to be more succinct.
