Toby Elwin, competing values, top blogs, 2011

No competing values, whatsoever

Closing out 2011, I look back at the year’s most viewed posts as a chance to reflect on topics I blog about people view most.

Why were some viewed over others:  topic, time-of-year, day-of-week?

In descending order:

10. Competing values drives your organization out of business

A 2009 blog about organization culture’s impact on change and what happens when organizations who can not identify or manage culture get stuck, become irrelevant, and vanish.  This blog talks about a culture identification tool called the Competing Values Framework and has a follow-up blog The cost of culture, a 50% turnover of the Fortune 500 that appears in 2011’s top 5.

9.  4 Tips to use Twitter for project management

Written in January, 2010 this blog seems to have hit a note.  This was 1 of 2 blogs eventually highlighted on PM Hut [Project Management Hut], the other Project management is not a process, but a promise.

8.  Crowdsourcing your organization strategy, what’s to appreciate

What is the cost to strategy adoption that avoids organization involvement:  failure.  This blog ties Appreciative Inquiry with Competing Values [culture] to present a case for expanded involvement.

7.  The key to innovation may be better employee hygiene

Another blog written in 2010, this is about the demand for innovation while constraining more and more talent confidence:  will I have a job, who else will get laid off, reduction in benefits, to name a few.  This blog looks at hygiene from its organization behavior frame.
