A week in Tweets: 6-13 Sep 09

Another week of Tweets and links – several pages’-worth, so click on the ‘More’ link for the full list.A discussion on the ‘social’ element in business and its relation to business-purpose:

  • oscarberg: successful social business design requires insight that business has always been social // the difference now from then in business design is that we now can overcome communication barriers more easily = much greater reach // business has always been a mix of transformations, transactions, relations and conversations // Today its harder to create competitive advantage in transformations & transactions => relations & conversations are more important // Correction: relations and conversations BECOME more important for creating competitive advantage
  • tetradian: RT @oscarberg: business always a mix of transformations, transactions, relations and conversations <<also shared purpose
  • oscarberg: @tetradian shared purpose is the foundation
  • richardveryard: @oscarberg @tetradian How much shared purpose? Many orgs are uneasy coalitions of groups with overlapping but not always identical purposes.
  • oscarberg: @richardveryard @tetradian I think orgs with a strong overall shared purpose (such as IKEA) are more successful
  • richardveryard: @oscarberg @tetradian Cause or effect? For as long as an org remains successful, people are willing to align themselves to its purpose.
  • oscarberg: @richardveryard @tetradian For IKEA, it is definitely cause. They have struggled at times, but always had a clear purpose to cling on to.
  • tetradian: @oscarberg @richardveryard “Cause or effect?” – the obvious answer is ‘Yes’ 🙂 tho’ more ’cause’ in more successful orgs
