Shervin Satareh on NGO-corporate collaboration

I subscribe to the European Baha’i Business Forum newsletter which often posts interesting articles and interviews about the relationships between business, corporate responsibility and social and economic development.  In his interview, Satareh discusses the need for closer collaboration between corporations and NGOs and how opening up this kind of discourse will contribute to advancing the corporate social responsibility (CSR) movement.

I found this intriguing in light of the BCI team’s current project of developing the OpenAgile™ Learning System™ and the corporate learning institute.

Esther Derby Writes about Trust Building

Five Ways that Team Members Build Trust.  The five things Esther mentions are all good and actually seem fairly comprehensive as categories.  I often think about trust and it’s relationship to Truthfulness.  I see truthfulness as comprising:

  • Integrity – acting on your principles with wisdom and without compromise.
  • Honesty – telling the truth as you understand it to other people.
  • Self-Awareness – knowing your capabilities and limits (being honest with yourself).

What else is required for Truthfulness and Trust-building?

What are Ways to Measure Productivity?

One of the most difficult aspects of doing Agile, is to find reasonable, do-able, agreeable ways to measure productivity.  Many organizations don’t measure productivity or only use very indirect indicators.

What do you do to measure productivity and how is it working for you?  If you don’t measure productivity, why not?
