Innovation: An Entrepreneurial Approach

A History of EntrepreneurshipAs someone who grew up with entrepreneurial parents, I can say without hesitation that there is no job experience that can completely compare with the rewards and perils of such a career path.  Although many would prefer to be employed, even employed by large or in the past, bureaucratic organizations, many of those employed in the U.S., as we all know, are employed with small business (using the basic standard of five hundred or less employees).  A quick look at…See More

The Boundaryless Organization – Fact or Fiction?

Way back in the early 1990s during my undergraduate business studies, we began learning about various predicted changes that were going to occur in the structure of leadership throughout corporate America, and all organizations.  Sixteen years later in graduate school, I was surprised at the universal nature of most of our experiences: the majority if not all of those above forty had not seen anything of the…See More

Par Excellence: Steve Jobs in His Own Words

While not every effective leader has the giftedness, skillset, mental horsepower or even the desire to be a CEO, many of the core strengths are one and the same.  First and foremost, a chief executive who proves to be an effective leader must be a radical visionary.  In Steve Jobs’ biography, Walter Isaacson describes visionary leadership as he has for decades,Some people say, “Give the customers what they want.” But that’s not my approach. Our job is to figure out what they’re going to want…See More

"Thank you Alan for the feedback and the valuable link.  When employees are engaged, it seems like there is nothing we can't get done, and unfortunately, the reverse is also true.  I think there is a real connection between leadership…"

"Scott I liked your piece. It made me think of Simon Sinek's Start with the Why Ted Talk. Having a compelling Why (i.e. Vision, Mission, Values) is more important than ever in the social world. People don't have the time and attention span…"

It’s the Social Era, and We Still Need Mission, Vision and Values

Recently I have found myself running virtually every business topic I consider though the grid of the social era.  This is particularly interesting to me since there are a number of principles in business that are timeless in nature, but undergo countless changes in their application due to sociological shifts.  Organizational change is no exception.  In fact, I would say a topic such as organizational change is amplified through the rapid shift in how business is done in the last few years,…See More

Innovation and Change, a Historical Perspective

A historical perspective of an organization, as those cited by Willem Mastenbroek from over a decade ago are not only interesting as an evolutionary history of organization and the firm, but also facilitate insight into early management and human behavior.  The examples also give a glimpse into what has necessitated change throughout history, motivated change and what facilitated change.  In other words, what does…
