We are all going: we are so focused on the daily life of our work that we do not see beyond the daily tasks. While we make small things do not look what is happening around us. Or beyond. However, it is vital for companies (and people) do not be so short-sighted. Having regard to the hyper-world in which we move, as you keep your eyes riveted on your homework “and” your table “and not wake up before you’re killing professionally.
If we make the effort to look away, we realize that there is information out of our environments potentially useful for developers: new trends, new technology, new articles and books, new professionals and people with interesting things to contribute, and old people and books to be reread. I’m not saying that companies neglect their daily chores. But set aside resources for their organizations to incorporate information explorers.
We need scouts who know the business well, the sector but have a broader view, they move to other worlds, other techniques, and other arts because of the variety and differences will emerge as varied and different. Companies may have browsers dedicated 100% to the task, or to encourage other departments (marketing, communication, for example) to which they are part time. But in any case the company must have the courage to let them have time and freedom to organize raids to hunt where good pieces of information. Should not be subject to discipline by the day or the small tasks, but leave them to hang out in libraries, read books and articles, attend presentations, procurement documentation center for the company to continue blogging, and monitoring the competition or companies that have nothing to do with what they are doing.
The discipline to which they must be subject to the scouts is to present useful results for the company, which are those that provide business value and also can act on them.
One possibility that occurs to me is that the browsers submit a report each month which then can be distributed throughout the company and on paper and via email. This work should come from the highest managerial novice to the technician over at least all that are on the same wavelength width. Miles may be the topics covered:
* News about our sector
* Things that happen in other sectors and could valernos
* Books that have come and we should take a look.
* Summaries of the books I’ve read, that might be useful, and I know that neither of coif to read because you never have time.
* Posts from blogs that might be useful (if also encourage you to follow the blog).
* Things that should go to
* People should continue to
* Other roads where you can explore information at will (this collection of books, such an organization, such people or country.)
* Conclusions: Summary of exploration + ideas and trends localized (this is the most important part of the report)
I believe that these documents would be very powerful as a laboratory of ideas. Obviously would not like pork, which is used throughout, but some knowledge would be transferred to the people and remain latent. As always be posted on the Internet can retrieve them later to rescue this good idea, look at where we suggested a year ago, the explorer of the company and now you see the utility.
This browser, or team of explorers would have to use your imagination, intuition, skills, tools and knowledge to get out the obvious, and organize and re-organized in multiple ways, in multiple ways, every month to bring a good game Pearls with the information to fill the treasury of ideas for the company. Hence can get new products, new creativity is multiplied exponentially when shared throughout the organization, the feeling of being in communion with the world and not like ants on small tasks that are not observed by the eye of anyone. I know that I am proposing a chimera: an employee or team of employees “released” as they engage in more creative things. And then they pay well. But are not we in an era of innovation? Well here’s a job well innovator. Both believe that if there were not receiving many resumes.
