    Jason Lauritsen shines light on engagement with big data with Thug Metrics

    in Technology

    Jason never disappoints, great convo coming about engagement and being a Best Place to Work.


    Everyone meet Jason, Jason meet everyone.


    Jason:  Even when I was in grade school, I recognized when processes were broken. But, rather than complain about them, my instinct was to find or create a better way. I solved the problem. I facilitated progress. I never outgrew this. 

    As my career unfolded, it became clear to me that the experience of “work” wasn’t a good one for far too many people. And so it has become my calling to make work better. I believe that work can and should be an awesome experience (It happens, I’ve seen it.). I believe that people want to do great work. I also believe that leaders want their people to be successful. The challenge seems to be that we are stuck in outdated mindsets and beliefs about “work” that get in our way. My mission is to fix that.

    IT Life Radio: Get Rid of Annual Reviews

    in Technology

    Almost anyone who has gone through an annual review knows they can be a pain. If you're lucky, you've got a good relationship with your boss and you get a raise and maybe a couple of tips for a better performance. If you're really lucky your annual review isn't a surprise, because you talk regularly with your manager and get good feedback.


    But what happens if you don't have that relationship? One review every year is like asking someone to drive a car on a highway and they only get to look out the windshield every 10 minutes. Business changes every day. Our responsibilities and priorities change every day. Why should we only get feedback once per year?


    BetterWorks Co-Founder and CEO Kris Duggan thinks there is a better way. We should treat feedback as a daily, low investment, high frequency endeavor. Instead of slaving away for days on one annual review, we should rely on current technology to do small course correcting feedback every day. Duggan will stop by to talk about a better way for managers and employees alike that will make everyone happier and more productive. Learn how to:



    Reshape the way you give feedback
    Treat feedback like a Fitbit
    Get more out of employees and be a better a manager


    Kris Duggan is the CEO and Co-Founder of BetterWorks, an enterprise goals platform trusted by high performing companies to engage, empower and cross-functionally align their work forces. Prior to BetterWorks, Kris was the founding CEO of Badgeville which provides gamification and social engagement solutions to help companies measure and influence behavior. He has a master's degree in business administration from University of California, Irvine. He received a patent for customizable rewards systems in 2011 and wrote and published "Business Gamification for Dummies" in 2013. He currently resides in Palo Alto with his wife and two sons.

    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.


    Host: Jo Dodds
