Grow a VEO

December 01, 2005 | TD Magazine Archive

The article discusses how to grow a Vibrant Entrepreneurial Organization (VEO). According to Joanne Sujansky, founder and CEO of the KEYGroup, a VEO not only attracts the most talented people but frees and nurtures their inner entrepreneur. There are several steps that a company can follow to become a VEO. First, a VEO shares the big picture and has no secrets, which means, employees know where the company is currently, where it wants to go, and what values will be required. Next, a VEO illustrates the new face of loyalty and employees give more loyalty to those companies that view them as complete human beings. A VEO also supports high productivity while minimizing stress. Downsizing and scarce resources have stretched workers to the breaking point as a result of which mistakes increase, opportunities are lost, and productivity can actually decline. A VEO believes that communication is a critical factor in holding onto the intellectual capital that gives the company its value and which leads to employee retention.

The article focuses on a significant rise in mobile device adoption by professionals. In 2005, the number of U.S. mobile telephone users surpassed the number of traditional land-based phone lines. In addition to opening up new forms of real-time interactive communication such as text messaging and instant messaging, the adoption of mobile devices for the purpose of learning is starting to show greater adaptability. Technologies such as podcasting has just been initiated into the genre of prerecorded audio programming. With portable MP3 players and mobile games already capturing much early attention in the mobile learning arena, the real excitement these days continues to focus on the significant developments occurring in the mobile networking world. Mobile learning is for the purpose of those people who need access to information and performance support when out in the field or on the job. Mobile learning includes those strategies, practices, tools, applications, and resources that take advantage of ubiquitous networks and pervasive digital devices to realize the promises of anytime, anywhere learning.

Getting Up to Speed

Dan Sussman | December 01, 2005 | TD Magazine Archive

The article focuses on Atlanta-based Randstad North America, one of the biggest professional staffing companies in the U.S. Randstad North America is a subsidiary of Netherlands-based Randstad Holding NV, which is among the world's largest providers of professional staffing services. Randstad's success is largely dependent on the quality of its staffing agents as they are the ones who are dispatched to branch offices throughout the continent to bring in the clients and provide day-to-day service. Randstad started an onboarding program for its new agents but this program could not prove itself very effective. For one thing, most of the training took place in instructor-led classroom sessions that were time-consuming and resource-intensive which involved six weeks of concentrated effort by new hires. In addition, nearly all of the course materials used in training were on paper, making distribution and reproduction difficult. Meeting the challenges would require a substantial overhaul of the program, including improved methods of learning delivery, altered schedules, and better accountability.

Five Steps to Leading Strategically

Katherine Beatty | December 01, 2005 | TD Magazine Archive

The article presents five steps that can be taken to help an organization build leadership strategy. An effective leadership strategy not only encompasses an organization's values and culture but also addresses the role of systems in facilitating leadership and development, as well as strategies for improving the effectiveness of individuals and teams. The organization should have a compelling vision and clear mission. There's need to identify capabilities to implement business strategy. One organization that represents the power of clarifying aspirations and strategy is Catholic Healthcare Partners (CHP), which is one of the largest not-for-profit hospital systems in the U.S. The senior leaders at CHP embraced the importance of aligning the organization's strategic priorities with the critical leadership factors needed to meet them. The culture, structures, and systems at CHP have played a crucial rule in its success in enacting strategic leadership. It should also be checked whether the leadership development strategy incorporates multiple types of experiences, such as training, coaching, mentoring, action learning, and developmental job assignments.
