FCW Insider: FCW radio show notes...talking collaboration with Prof. McAfee



I'm behind on last week's show notes for the FCW radio show that airs on DC's Federal News Radio AM 1050.

For the June 3 show, we talked to Harvard Business School Associate Prof. Andrew McAfee. McAfee specializes in the merger of the enterprise and technology, and he is credited with creating the term Enterprise 2.0. FCW profiled McAfee last year and last week we featured his blog as one of the five blogs worth reading. McAfee was also one of the keynote speakers at 1105 GovInfo's Government Leadership Summit earlier this month and did a really excellent job of laying the groundwork for our conversations about collaboration.

One other post I'll recommend:

FCW Insider: A question worth asking

Here is an excerpt of McAfee's blog post, headlined What I Said About the Revolution:


Later this week, the Management Lab is convening a group of academics and practitioners to "to define the “Grand Challenges” for 21st century management, and imagine possible solutions to them." The list of attendees is very impressive; I’m flattered to have been asked to participate and anticipate learning a lot.

As part of the preparation for the conference we we asked to "Briefly describe a “design flaw” or “impediment” that undermines the capacity of organizations to adapt, innovate, or fully engage the talents of their members." We were then asked to "Briefly describe a “radical remedy” that might help to counter or avoid the impediment or design flaw described above."

I liked people's comments about these questions.
