Looking for Influencers in Your Company? Look to Content Before Metrics

Viewing Influence in Your Enterprise Social Network - Look to Content Before MetricsIf influence is vague -- encompassing anything from peer pressure to marketing (cults, hazing, “As Seen On TV” ads, political campaigns, protests for peace and love, regrettable fashion trends) -- then influencers are powerful. By their definition, one can assume they have influenced more than once. They have achieved buy-in, trust and a reputation that results in more than the ability to spark passing fads.

Too bad they're damaging their careers — and your brand — in the process.

Complexity, Competitive Advantage and Embracing the Intangible

In 2014 Business Will Embrace the IntangibleIn 2014, business will embrace the intangible.

The first step is to measure whatever can be easily measured. This is OK as far as it goes. The second step is to disregard that which can't be easily measured or to give it an arbitrary quantitative value. This is artificial and misleading.
