Profits grew at nearly a 17 percent annual rate.In addition, Anderson oversaw Best Buy's expansion into China, Mexico and Europe, and he changed the company's focus with a program called customer centricity, in which the company developed a handful of profiles of its most typical customers and re-organized stores to cater to the most important profile at each location.Like Anderson, Dunn started on Best Buy's sales floor and rose up the executive ranks. Dunn joined the company as a VCR salesman in 1985. He has been president and chief operating officer of Best Buy since 2006. He is 48 years old.

    • 10. Marketing – the good old days…
    • 11. What’s happening today?– Pepsi’s Marketing
      "Consumers own the brands as much as we do, and they want to share their interests and likes," says Bonin Bough, director of social and emerging media for PepsiCo. “Twitter means we can react to something that happens and provide a platform for dialog. That's the key word. It's about engagement and building the relationship...”
    • 12. What happened to Marketing?
      • 14% of us trust advertising
      • 13. 78% of people trust peer recommendations

    • 25. You won't have to depend on the CEO anymore. We now have a
      whole pool of talent who can lead these working groups, like mini CEOs and COOs. We're growing ideas, but we're growing people as well. Where I might have had two potential successors, I now have 500.
      Proof – Cisco

    • 26. Scenario 1
      • Workers with specialized expertise on deep, complex and ever-changing subjects all around the country or even the world
      • 27. Performance is not you need; pockets of expertise lead to great outcomes in certain scenarios, but not others; whereas in other regions, the weaknesses are the strengths
      • 28. How do you normalize and then accelerate group performance?
      Example Industries
      Franchises
      Associations
      Retail chains or hospitality chains
      Any globally distributed manufacturing or mining company
      Exercise #2 (Group): Be a “social” Consultant
    • 29. Problem
      Results
      Background
      Geographically dispersed expertise
      Specialized products and product knowledge across a huge inventory
      Common roles, common needs but no way to capture knowledge
      Constant change and new info sometimes daily
      Independent owners
      500% ROI in under 6 months
      Weekly and daily use of the system
      Documentation of common issues at marginal cost
      Documentation of specialized knowledge at marginal cost
      Culture of sharing
      All 4400 Ace stores are independently owned and operated by local entrepreneurs, hard-working, passionate business owners who are involved with and, many times, reside in the communities where their stores are. There's a good chance you'll see your local Ace store owner at the grocery store or Little League game.
    • 30. Scenario 2
      • You are in charge of sales training and education.
      • 31. Your sales team needs more information about competitors: how they pitch, how they price, weaknesses, strengths…
      • 32. Organization doesn’t have the resources to do a deep dive on all of these competitors either initially or on an on-going basis
      • 33. How do you meet the sales team’s needs?
      Example Industries
      Any of them – who doesn’t have comptitors?
      Exercise #2 (Group): Be a “social” Consultant
    • 34. Problem
      Results
      Background
      Huge growth mode – 200+ branches in under two years
      Needed to capture knowledge of competitors that was shared by clients
      Need to capture & share best practices in a state of constant flux
      Standard training & communication wouldn’t work
      Weekly and daily use of the system
      Documentation of common issues at marginal cost
      Documentation of specialized knowledge at marginal cost
      Faster distribution of key information
      Culture of sharing & SN

    • 35.
    • 36. Things to think about...
      • Is this different than the Ace Hardware example?
      • 37. Is this knowledge management?
      • 38. If a trainer compiled this same information and delivered it in a course each month with a quiz at the end, does that change who owns it?
      • 39. What if the training group mentored the sales folks on how best to present what they know?
      • 40. What if the training group did a weekly lunch and learn summarizing the latest updates?
      • 41. How many of the silos between training, knowledge management, document management etc… arepurely in our heads?
    • Scenario 3
      • As a group, your clients and customers know more about your product or service than you do
      • 42. The cost of mining them for that information is prohibitive as the information constantly changes
      • 43. How do you share the expertise of individual clients with other clients and use their expertise to better inform your own team?
      Example Industries
      Software
      Complex Hardware
      Complex Systems
      Obsolesced Technology

      Results
      Background
      Bluetooth for the masses? YIKES!
      Average support call costs $8-$12
      Need to capture & share best practices in linking new Bluetooth devices which are in a state of constant flux
      Standard training & communication wouldn’t work
      As of last Spring, 10,000 active users and over 1,000,000 message views
      Painless rollout and adoption of the technology
      Documentation of common issues at marginal cost
      Innovation and product suggestions
      In January of 2007, Ford launched SYNC, a factory-installed, in-car communications and entertainment system developed by Ford and Microsoft that allows various portable digital music players and Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones to be operated with simple voice commands.
      Named one of the Top 10 “Most Brilliant Gadgets” of 2007 by Popular Mechanics.
    • 45. Things to think about
      • Is this different than the other two examples?
      • 46. Why? Because of the customer focus?
      • 47. If the organization learns from it’s clients or employees, is that learning any less valuable than what the organization pushes from the top down?
      • 48. If the leadership and experts tell you what to teach, then it’s clearly owned by L&D, but if the employees or clients tells each other or the leadership, then it’s not?
      • 49. We need to cast off old ways of thinking that limit us
      • 50. We need to re-imagine our role

      You become a support function.
