Literally Virtually: Making Virtual Teams Work
We are all remote workers. Who today doesn’t use technology to communicate with our families and coworkers? We email, text, leave voice messages, video conference with friends, children, and grandchildren and participate in social media to both share and receive news from those who are important to us.
Even though we leverage the power of virtual communication, we often default to doing so as if we are always face-to-face. There’s a difference. Literally Virtually is filled with best practices to help you and your virtual workforce members not only survive but to excel, including:
📌 How to build trust from a distance,
📌 Best practices to leverage communications technology,
📌 How to avoid underestimating cultural differences,
📌 How to align virtual members behind the team’s purpose and vision,
📌 Creating and maintaining virtual team engagement, and
📌 An introduction to the Long Distance Leadership™ model
Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing Our Digital Future
In The Second Machine Age, Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson predicted some of the far-reaching effects of digital technologies on our lives and businesses. Now they’ve written a guide to help readers make the most of our collective future. Machine | Platform | Crowd outlines the opportunities and challenges inherent in the science fiction technologies that have come to life in recent years, like self-driving cars and 3D printers, online platforms for renting outfits and scheduling workouts, or crowd-sourced medical research and financial instruments.
Uber. Airbnb. Amazon. Apple. PayPal. All of these companies disrupted their markets when they launched. Today they are industry leaders. What’s the secret to their success?
These cutting-edge businesses are built on platforms: two-sided markets that are revolutionizing the way we do business. Written by three of the most sought-after experts on platform businesses, Platform Revolution is the first authoritative, fact-based book on platform models. Whether platforms are connecting sellers and buyers, hosts and visitors, or drivers with people who need a ride, Geoffrey G. Parker, Marshall W. Van Alstyne, and Sangeet Paul Choudary reveal the what, how, and why of this revolution and provide the first “owner’s manual” for creating a successful platform business.
Platform Revolution teaches newcomers how to start and run a successful platform business, explaining ways to identify prime markets and monetize networks. Addressing current business leaders, the authors reveal strategies behind some of today’s up-and-coming platforms, such as Tinder and SkillShare, and explain how traditional companies can adapt in a changing marketplace. The authors also cover essential issues concerning security, regulation, and consumer trust, while examining markets that may be ripe for a platform revolution, including healthcare, education, and energy.
The Business of Platforms: Strategy in the Age of Digital Competition, Innovation, and Power
The Business of Platforms is an invaluable, in-depth look at platform strategy and digital innovation. Cusumano, Gawer, and Yoffie address how a small number of companies have come to exert extraordinary influence over every dimension of our personal, professional, and political lives. They explain how these new entities differ from the powerful corporations of the past. They also question whether there are limits to the market dominance and expansion of these digital juggernauts. Finally, they discuss the role governments should play in rethinking data privacy laws, antitrust, and other regulations that could reign in abuses from these powerful businesses.
