Halfway through this year, I swapped from my Tumblr blog to this new WordPress powered site. My recap of the top 10 posts for the year will be 5 from each six months.
Here are the Top 5 Posts by views for the second half of 2016
- Changing Work is Hard: Propelled by Tanmay Vora’s great infographic of another blog post, I looked at why work is hard to change
- Work Ahead for 2017: Lots of interest in my roadmap for helping individuals and organisations to be more agile, responsive and effective in 2017
- Email is a Problem but Meetings are the Collaboration Issue: Tackle our meeting problem and there is an immediate response.
- The Wirearchy Makes Your Hierarchy Work: The people do the work. The boxes just sit in a neat hierarchy.
- Chats, Conversations and Collaboration (& a Note on Communication): Unravelling the choices between a glut of new and older technology platforms (Yammer, Microsoft Teams, Slack, Workplace by Facebook, etc) by going back and considering human behaviour.
Here are the Top 5 Posts by views for the first half of 2016 from simonterry.tumblr.com. Two of these are prior year favourites that I regularly reuse and recommend. All these historical posts are now included in the archive on this site.
- Competency or Capability: Mindsets Matter: One of the first pieces I wrote 3 years ago and still stronger than ever. This year I updated the organisational perspective on this post which has revived interest.
- A Simple Visual History of Digital Transformation: A simple walk through Digital change. No surprise in its popularity. A video is available on my Youtube channel too.
- Working Aloud: Try Three Tiny Habits. Simple steps to be more effective in working out loud.
- Reflections on Facebook at WorkReflections on Facebook at Work (now known as Workplace by Facebook): There has been a lot of discussion of Facebook at Work this year. Here is one of my two contributions.
- Why Collaboration Value is Understated: I will talk more in 2017 about how to create the strategic value from collaboration. It is still badly misunderstood and rarely effectively realised.
One older post missed the top 5 in each but had enough traffic to be in the top 10 across both sites. The message still holds true: The Future of Work is the Future of Leadership.
My personal bonus: The most fun post to write this year was The Life Crushing Magic of Hierarchy.
