Recently I had the pleasure of joining the good folks at Spinsucks to talk about innovation, disruption, adoption, and the dreaded S curve as it relates to PR and Communications.
The added bonus was that I got to join the talented, strategic, insightful, bright business leader, Gini Dietrich -- who is also just a lot of fun to be with. I was so excited...I was standing on my head. Youll see. Oh, and the approach to the slides was also a little fun and different. You can see the different approach to slides at my channel on youtube, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFFcvm_Sn7DxAQGIlodYTLA

Hope you enjoy it

  • The shape of the online universe. This image shows the hierarchical structure of the Internet, based on the connections between individual nodes (such as service providers). Three distinct regions are apparent: an inner core of highly connected nodes, an outer periphery of isolated networks, and a mantle-like mass of peer-connected nodes. The bigger the node, the more connections it has. Those nodes that are closest to the center are connected to more well-connected nodes than are those on the periphery.


    The core: At the center of the Internet are about 80 core nodes through which most traffic flows. Remove the core, and 70 percent of the other nodes are still able to function through peer-to-peer connections.



  • Talent decisions have often been driven by the need of the moment, not a longer-term strategic discipline. The Social media and community competencies have not been developed, detailed or applied in ways that drive results and are thoughtfully integrated and built into our traditional business hierarchies.

    An example of a social skill representing the kind of change we face:

    a community manager who has responsibilities for a brand facebook page and related community of advocates. That community manager /Facebook page manager may not have the authority and/or budget to sponsor a post --give a little extra oomph – when they see it resonating with the community. And actually that Community manager is now also in effect the media buyer…and the ad media buying agency is not in touch with the FB community in order to be this agile

    Why is there a shortage of skill sets ( there may be lots of hiring focused on specialized skill sets, such as a social media person)

    …but the real issue is how do individual departments that are being tasked to leverage talent in more integrated ways build out their social capabilities.
    In some cases that means they have no choice but to retool - expand skill sets and grow from within -- and connect that skill development process with external resources.
    And as for the SM Leadership and overall business strategy how do you ensure that the skills are available and aligned to strategy right across business units and functions
  • Ill leave you with this slide to digest on your own…it is not pretty…..either the slide or the findings.

    Couple highlights:
    74% of business executives say their company has a digital strategy, but only 15% believe that their company has the skills and capabilities to execute on that strategy.

    Over 90% of the companies stated that they did not have necessary skills in the areas of social media, mobile, internal social networks, process automation and performance monitoring and analysis. The same survey notes Despite the skills shortage, only 46% of companies are investing in developing digital skills. Only 4% of companies interviewed are aligning their training efforts with their digital strategy.

    Ill let you read the rest




  • 1. In the first case, you can create a customized baseline that identifies specific skills/levels based on reviewing the social strategy….sort of a blind skill test
    forget our actual people for a second, to achieve this strategy I will need……x skill at base level and x skill at strategic level in customer support; in marketing I need ABC
    Now a formal assess actual skills in the org – by managers or employees themselves
    Map the skills you have against the dream to achieve strategy.
    Result: identifies skill and operational gaps. Options to alter course for success or change social strategy.

    2. The Straightforward Skill Assessment Model involves simply take a current skills inventory. Now you know the skills, build social strategy around the skills so you know you succeed or show gaps to identify needs for resources to do more. The Social Strategy and program options developed against capabilities -- adjust skills or strategy. Offers a sound Basis for cross department/function collaboration about how to move forward.

    The base result is actually measured and quantified skill inventory…..you have real data about the skills in and across the organization (and mapped to what you need or want). The gaps are clear.


    In either case:
    cross department understanding of skills and needs for success enhance program effectiveness and delivery
    avoid misaligned roles, responsibilities and ineffective programs
    Avoid people who feel unable to perform responsibilities or overwhelmed by a new task
