    Management Decisions - The Death of the 9-to-5
by Alexandra Levit and Jenna Connour - Apr, 2015
Working flexible hours. Telecommuting. Job sharing. These are all examples of flex schedules, which are becoming increasingly popular for many companies and businesses.

  IT Leaders: 5 Reasons to Encourage Citizen Development
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
IT leaders who “teach employees to fish” may be feeding the business for a lifetime. Many IT leaders and even CIOs today are missing an opportunity. Their teams spend all day catering to business needs when in fact the business managers can and should be empowered to solve problems themselves. There is an old saying that goes: “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lif...
  Building Business Within a Community
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
The seeds of community can be critical when it comes to choosing a location for a new brick-and-mortar business, and small-business owners are likely to rely on personal connections to develop and sustain a strong customer base. Local ownership and even word of mouth, however, only go so far. Physical businesses should continually remind the community of their existence and engage in community outreach to help ensure a pipe...
  Managing Workplace Conflict in a Small Business
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
When a small business grows and adds new employees to the team, inevitably there can be some friction. For entrepreneurs who may have worked on their own for a while, staff conflicts are new and not necessarily welcome developments. The incidence and implications of workplace conflict have troubled leaders for a while. Back at the end of the last decade, Myers-Briggs publisher CPP Inc. commissioned a major study that found...
  Are You Properly Leveraging Your Retiring Boomers?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
I've observed an interesting phenomenon. Condo sales in the town where my in laws live, West Palm Beach, were picking up. As someone who studies workforce trends, this is the opposite of what I expected to happen. The baby boomer generation, I thought, does not want to retire to Florida and play golf and mahjong all day. They want to stick around and keep contributing. It turns out I had only part of that right. Boomers wan...
  The Next Generation of Employee Monitoring
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
Last summer, I wrote about a Rackspace/University of London study that assessed productivity levels in 120 employees outfitted with wearable monitoring technology. The participants were equipped with one of the three devices – the GENEActiv high-velocity accelerometer wristband, which measures movement and activity; the NeuroSky Mindwave portable biosensor EEG, which monitors brain activity; and the LUMOback posture and activi...
  What Caused the Worldwide Productivity Slowdown?
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2015
At a time when business productivity should logically be speeding up, why is the opposite is happening? While skimming the paper of my youth, the Washington Post, I came across the intriguing headline: Productivity mysteriously goes bust Writer Robert Samuelson goes on to say this about the apparent worldwide productivity slowdown: What’s especially baffling is that, superficially, outside forces seem to favor fast...
  Why Boomers Are More Likely To Succeed as Entrepreneurs
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2015
A study by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation reported that the highest rate of entrepreneurial activity over the last few years is not Gen-Y upstarts, but Baby Boomers in the 55-64 year age group. In fact, Boomers are actually driving a new entrepreneurship boom as they retire from their traditional corporate jobs and seek more meaningful sources of work. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 60 percent of th...
  4 Leadership Principles Every Business Requires
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2015
There is a formula for leadership success, and it’s spelled FAST. Too often, policies, procedures, and bureaucracy can slow necessary changes to a crawl, and negatively affect a company’s bottom line. Leadership expert and Fast Track friend Gordon Tredgold has written a new book in which he shares his four essential principals of leadership. Using the acronym of FAST (for Focus, Accountability, Simplicity, and Transparen...
  The “Smart Creative” – Creating a Culture of Problem Solving
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2015
Innovative companies, it turns out, are mostly built by one type of employee. Google exec Eric Schmidt is famous for pioneering a very particular hiring process at the tech behemoth. In his book, How Google Works, Schmidt lays out his vision of the ideal Google employee. Called the “smart creative,” this employee represents the future of high performing knowledge workers. Loads of organizations are trying to emulate Goog...
  CIOs Share Rapid App Development Strategies
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2015
The world of the CIO has changed drastically in the last 5 years. How are they coping? At Intuit QuickBase’s recent #EMPOWER 15 conference, product marketing manager John Carione convened a panel of customer CIOs to discuss how cloud-based low-code platforms and citizen development are transforming the way IT is executed. We heard from Isaac Sacolick, CIO of financial consulting firm Greenwich Associates; Francois Tricot, C...
