Your Revenue Driver
This article does an excellent job of describing the pros and cons of the GIG economy.
During the "transition" from employment models to "gig" models we may be guilty of expecting that our managers know how to manage contractors and that contractors know how to be managed?
It may be harder or easier than managing employees or being an employee - but I believe it is different and that it represents an emerging skill requirement that may be addressed by traditional training models.
This is an interesting example of understanding data first and then seeking correlations.
This may be a method of preventing our biases from causing us to miss important information. I remember being educated by Gene Pease on this concept. He was well ahead of his time and I appreciate what he taught me.
The diagnostic questions in the article relate directly to Workplace Learning - and reflect "digital transformation" - 1.0.
The article did offer a thinking model for DT 2.0
"Decision 1: Where your business should go
Decision 2: Who will lead the effort
Decision 3: How to “sell” the vision to key stakeholders
Decision 4: Where to position the firm within the digital ecosystem
Decision 5: How to decide during the transformation
Decision 6: How to allocate funds rapidly and dynamically
Decision 7: What to do when"
Another useful framework for Workplace Learning:
Identify a problem and market yourself as the solution
Be creative and negotiate
Keep talking and show results
Creating a culture around outcomes
Determining which EBPs to include
Implement the right technology
Select a partner to analyze the data (this is vital - are we willing to do so?)
