  • Managing that Matters: Lessons from Planet Google

    Management guru Peter Drucker called the creation of the computer the birth of a new basic civilization in which managers would take on entirely new roles and work would be organized in unforeseen ways.

    What efforts have worked and what has been a dead end

    Pointers on how communications technologies are used to market internally and externally, winning loyalty and inspiring people

    A look ahead to what management approaches to expect next from the technology leaders

  • Community, Contagion and Capitalism: Technology and the Future of Society

    The communications revolution has not just sped up our lives; it has changed the way we think about politics, companies and even national power. If you are under the impression that this type of revolution is a new experience for humanity, think again.

    In todays business climate every business, institution and household faces the same problem: Whom should I trust and how do I get people to trust me? In the age of Bernie Madoff and the derivatives debacle, it seems like everyone on Wall Street is suspect. Meanwhile, good businesses cannot get loansthanks to the credit crunchwhile a culture of cynicism is fed by gotcha journalists and quick-hit bloggers. This should, can and will end. Quentin Hardy has reported on Japanese financial collapses, the dotcom bubble and todays financial woes. He shares:

    His perspective on the technological roots of the problem

    Insights on the universal practices of trust that must be re-invented

    How to build better management and business structures that avoid historical repetition
