What Have People Read in the First Half of 2021
Blog: Jim Sinur
Thanks to all who have read my posts and especially for the feedback. As momentum swings up in this shift from the lockdown mentality to near full speed, the topics are shifting ever so slightly. There is still a big emphasis on hybrid work and results-driven collaboration, but the demand for top talent is forcing a shift in management attitude as I tried to capture in corporate culture and leadership style posts. The top topics in the last year are Customer Experience/Journeys, Management Improvement, Trends in Digitial, Digital Business Platforms (DBP), Better Ongoing Data Management/Data Mesh, and Real-Time Business Response. See Figure 1 for the last 12 months running.
The first half of 2021 has all of the trending topics included, but a couple of new topics have popped up. Most organizations want to be more aware, so the interest in Management Cockpits and Real-Time Fast Boards is increasing. Also, organizations are concerned about the direction and progress towards digital transformation. In other words, “Is my digital progress on point?” “Are Management Disciplines Keeping Up with Better Learning?” See Figure 3 for the first half of 2021. Figure 2 identifies the most active countries for the first half of 2021 outside of the US which dominates the number of hits to date (not shown). Let me know of any topics you would like me to address and I will try unless they are way out of bounds for me.
