Second Life , for the uninitiated, is a virtual world that allows anyone to join and participate for free and create and own any kind of clothing, vehicle, building or other object. Linden Lab makes most of its money by charging players use fees for virtual land they buy and build on. There are also 42,400 &quot;premium&quot; accounts now in use. These are required for users who want to own land, and which cost a minimum of $9.95 a month. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZ2cNrO6h0o
The things in green, As I mentioned, the iconic companies of the 20 th century were rich in those items in red, today, we’re more interested in Google than general motors. Case in pointy, Alcan and Alcoa, the worlds two largest aluminum companies and both F50 companies are talking about joining. The combined giant would have over 200,000 employees and over $50 billion in revenue. Google by comparison has about 10,00 employees and only $12 b in revenue. Which organization do you think is worth more, Google or Alco and Alcan combined? Google is worth $150b, the combined Alcoa and Alcan would have a market cap of less than $55b. Talent is what bring the items in green to companies. The items in green account for at least 75% of the market value of publicly traded companies in this country. That’s why we say we’re in an Age of Talent. Before I talk about an Ag of Talent, it might be useful to define talent. Inside organizations the meaning really varies. Some take a traditional approach limiting the term to executives and critical, skilled professionals. Others define is as anyone ho is making a contribution or has the potential to. For the purposes of this presentation, talent is really the intangible part of an organization. The part that contributes intellect, knowledge, courage, ambition and agility and the part than generates goodwill, innovation, brand and teamwork. The other valuable component of an organization is its tangible assets – inventory, equipment, buildings, land, etc. Why are we in an Age of Talent? …
