While most people were away on holidays, the TomorrowToday team was busy blogging – throughout the Christmas and New Year holidays, we continued to scan the new world of work for news, reviews and signs of change. We can’t help ourselves. When we relax and try and take a break, our minds have some space and start to collate data we’ve stored away. Out pops information, and we have no choice – it spills out onto the blog. Or something like that…
Anyway, if you weren’t watching the “New World of Work” blog closely over the last few weeks, you might have missed some really brilliant contributions. Here are my favourites:
- The biggest global challenges in 2011
- My top story of the year: The reaction to the reaction to Wikileaks
- What is really happening in the US? – an analysis by Sir Jeremy Greenstock, our contributor from Gatehouse Advisory Partners group, who analyse global political trends.
- Are you the tallest amongst dwarfs or do you walk with giants? – a new year’s thought about benchmarking against your industry competitors vs trying to be the very best in the world
- Book Summary: From Strategy to Execution – some key trends shaping the new world of work
- The Difference: 2000 & 2010 – a short, but important, thought bullet from new contributor, Pete Laburn. He gets us thinking about whether we should be looking for business continuity or novelty in these turbulent times. (By the way, one of the most read posts on our blog in the last month was this infographic on how things have changed from 2000 to 2010).
- The 5 Most Dim-Witted Leadership Strategies – have you been guilty of any of these? A thought provoker by our Canadian contributor, Dawna MacLean.

I hope they’re as fun and informative to read as they were to write. Have a great new world of work 2011.
