Mobile Monday Madrid: being part of innovation

Mobile Monday Madrid

Mobile Monday Madrid

Today I had the opportunity to attend once again to the Mobile Monday Madrid. The topic for this meeting was Mobile Internet Platforms. For this occasion we had a great panel of speakers and also a great audience. The session was opened by Enrique Dans and after that we had speakers from the GYM (Google, Yahoo and Microsoft) who told us about their efforts to be the next biggest platforms for mobile devices.

After listening to their presentations about how they consider that the “new” connected life will be, and how they are positioning themselves to be the center of those connected lives, I was thinking about their strategies and took some notes that I would like to share with everyone.

The quest for the Lovework

Lovework coverA couple of days ago, I came across a book entitled “En busca del Lovework” written by two brothers Joan and David Elías. As it happens with many things I read, I would like to express my opinions about it and share them with everyone.

As a first impression, I have to say that it’s a short and easy reading that exposes a subject that is of utmost importance for companies in the current knowledge era. In spite of that, I think that the concept of “Lovework” is not being clearly defined and, in my opinion, that can confine the book to the sad category of “enterprise self-help” for those managers who need to have the worng freeling that: “there’s nothing you can do to motivate your employees, because they need to come motivated to work”, what basically means that it’s “not their problem”.

I think that is not the idea that the book tries to transmit, and I would like to extend the concept some more with my opinions. Sigue leyendo

En busca del Lovework

Lovework coverHace unos días llegó a mis manos el libro “En busca del Lovework” de los hermanos Joan y David Elías. Como me pasa con muchas cosas que leo, quisiera intentar dar mis opiniones y compartirlas con todo el mundo.

Como primera impresión, debo decir que se trata de un libro corto y de fácil lectura, que expone un tema sumamente importante para las empresas en la actual era del conocimiento. Sin embargo, creo que no se expone claramente el concepto del “Lovework” y, en mi opinión, eso puede relegar al libro a la categoría de “autoayuda empresarial” para aquellos gerentes que necesitan quedarse con la idea erróneamente simplificada de: “no se puede hacer nada por motivar a los trabajadores, sino que ellos deben venir motivados desde casa”, es decir que el “problema” es de los empleados.

Creo que esa no es la idea que se pretende transmitir en el libro, y me gustaría ampliarla un poco más con mis opiniones. Sigue leyendo
