    Show #114: Mapping Informal Employee Networks to Build Better Organisations

    in Business

    Special Guest: András Vicsek, Co-Founder and Head of Research at Maven7 and Designer and developer of social network analysis solutions based on the technologies of the future.

    Organisations are becoming more and more complex, more connected, and therefore more difficult to manage. There are multiple hierarchy levels, functions, projects, job roles, processes, products, etc, and thus a stronger role of informal networks, which affects organisational performance. The problems of organisations are increasingly complex as well. Many of them are trying to shift from silos and product or project-based teams to cross-functional collaborations.

    This is an era marked with rapid change (more frequent organisational restructuring, new IT system implementations, introduction of new strategies, more mergers and acquisitions, etc), which demands more from leaders and managers.

    Join us as we, through real life case studies, show how mapping informal employee networks will help:

    better manage and accelerate change initiatives
    identify previously hidden key employees (experts, high-potentials, change agents) and their positions in the organisational network
    build stronger, more cohesive teams
    boost overall organisational performance to benefit the bottom line

    András is a work and organisational psychologist, and is responsible for research and product development within Maven7. He is a management consultant and a trainer specialised in social and organisational network analysis.

    Show #113: Sparking Change in Organisations

    in Business

    Special Guest: Helen Walton, Founder of Gamevy and Spark the Change

    Helen Walton is a creative and marketing manager who has worked on an eclectic range of products – from writing a make-up column in the Daily Mail to a series of books on Agile. She is the co-founder of Gamevy – a tech start-up bringing TV gameshows online – a company that is employee owned with no bosses and a radical approach to self-management.

    Spark the Change was born out of a desire to create a community of fellow practitioners – other people who were experimenting, who were ambitious, who were a little bit crazy – and who wanted to challenge the lazy idea of ‘that’ll never work’.

    Spark brings people from across the business – people who know that company culture can’t be sidelined into ‘HR’s responsibility’ and who appreciate that it’s not something warm and fuzzy but a direct competitive advantage that powers your innovation and responsiveness. Although it is fun and inspiring – it’s main goal is action, not inspiration.

    Jo Dodds - Social Media and HR Consultant with Engage for Success

    in Business

    Jo Dodds is Social Media and HR Consultant with Engage for Success and which includes co-hosting with Jo Moffatt their radio show Engage for Success. Disclaimer: I was guest on their show. We had an excellent conversation about our shared passion: engaged employees. 

    Engage4Success, I’m quoting their site, is a voluntary movement committed to the belief that employee engagement is a better way to work. Over 1000 individuals from hundreds of organisations have contributed over £1million in time, expertise and resources, helping to bring the aims of our movement to life.

    While their efforts are focused on the UK, with social media and their devotion we can share and learn and maybe give back a bit. That’s what I hope to be doing here, sharing their expertise with this audience.

    Their site is chock-full of well-written, well-researched, articles and papers and profiles of their initiatives and case-studies on companies and their successes, or not, with raising employee engagement. We’ll talk with Jo about how she curates all this goodness and then shares it in a way that reflects their movement principles. And we’ll talk with her about some of the best initiatives from Engage for Success, what’s different, better or worse, with the two markets, UK and US, with regards to employee engagement and what trends she sees developing now.
