      • Employee Engagement is a Leading Indicator of Financial Performance for a company
        • engaged employees are more productive, more profitable, more customer-focused, and safer
          • In average organizations, the ratio of engaged to actively disengaged employees is 1.5:1.
          • In world-class organizations, the ratio of engaged to actively disengaged employees is near 8:1.
        • Within the U.S. workforce, leading estimates show the cost of disengaged employees to be more than $300 billion in lost productivity alone
      • Customer Engagement- Organizations that optimized engagement outperformed their competitors by 26% in gross margin and 85% in sales growth.
        • Their customers buy more, spend more, return more often, and stay longer.
  • 5. Harvesting the Wisdom of Crowds (J. Surowiecki)
      • Large groups and populations possess some surprising decision-making advantages over experts including:
        • Better predictive forecasting and estimating capability
        • Richer brainstorming and ideation capacity
        • Ability to rapidly distill and prioritize meaning from large volumes of information
        • Better capability to identify non-traditional risks
          • Institutional Experts perpetuate institutional assumptions and practices.
        • Quantifying the “will (and conflicts) of the people”
        • NEW LEADERSHIP, NEW MGMT MINDSETS AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES allow for capturing this wisdom in ways that were heretofore not possible
