TechTarget: SearchEnterpriseAI – Ultimate guide to artificial intelligence in the enterprise




AI in the enterprise will change how work is done, but companies must overcome several challenges to derive value from this powerful and rapidly evolving technology.

By Linda Tucci

The application of artificial intelligence in the enterprise will profoundly change the way businesses work. Companies are beginning to incorporate AI into their business operations with the aim of saving money, boosting efficiency, generating insights and creating new markets.

There are AI-powered applications to enhance customer service, maximize sales, sharpen cybersecurity, optimize supply chains, free up workers from mundane tasks, improve existing products and point the way to new products. It is hard to think of an area in the enterprise where AI — the simulation of human processes by machines, especially computer systems — will not have a deep impact.

Fast Company – 3 must-haves to collaborate and brainstorm when your team all works remotely




By Sagi Eliyahu

The CEO of Tonkean says “Many of us took for granted just how many ideas were cooked up back when we enjoyed the luxury of working together, in person.” Here’s how to create space for the same spontaneous interactions.

Business leaders have learned a few things over the past two months about the way “work” actually happens inside their companies. One key lesson: A lot of the work that gets done—certainly more than we realized—requires direct human collaboration that includes decision-making, delegation, coordination, and strategy. And much of the progress we make in that work, the leaps in innovation, the light-bulb moments, happens without us consciously planning for it.

Instead, it happens serendipitously, sort of randomly, often over cups of coffee, before whiteboards, at lunch, amid impromptu conversations. You know, in situations that materialize naturally when teams are working together, in person. That in-person piece, it turns out, is important. I think of a conversation Steve Jobs had with his biographer, Walter Isaacson, about this very topic. “Creativity comes from spontaneous meetings, from random discussions. You run into someone, you ask what they’re doing, you say ‘Wow,’ and soon you’re cooking up all sorts of ideas.”

Inc. – Brain Expert Jim Kwik Teaches a Whole New Way to Take Notes and It’s Genius




By Minda Zetlin, Co-Author, The Geek Gap

In a new Inc. webinar, Limitless author and memory expert Jim Kwik taught the audience a new way to take notes so as to get the most value out of them. You should start using it immediately — I know I’m going to. It all begins with drawing a line down the center of the page.

I spend a lot of time taking notes and almost as much time thinking about how I could do it better. I switched from typing notes to writing them by hand when I learned research showed handwritten notes improve comprehension and retention. Once I started using a bullet journal a year or two ago, I began keeping important handwritten notes there (rather than in the notepads provided at every conference). That way I can always find them when I need them.

That was as far as my note-taking evolution had gotten — until I attended Kwik’s webinar and it changed my whole thinking about how to do it. Here’s what I learned.

CMSWire – Your Old Blog Content Is a Goldmine





March 12, 2020

B2B brands have realized the enormous benefits of keeping a regular blogging schedule. In fact, the Content Marketing Institute found that 80% of B2B marketers are using blogging as part of their content marketing strategy, and over half agree it’s their most critical tactic. That means many brands have amassed a considerable amount of content over the years that may or may not still be valuable to their customers.

With this in mind, we’ve asked B2B blogging experts whether brands should focus on old blog posts and if they had any tips for refreshing stale content.

Should You Forget About Old Blog Posts?

“Blog content is the backbone of any brand’s digital footprint,” said Pam McBride, director of product marketing at StackAdapt. By adding new content, brands continue to build up SEO, brand awareness and their overall authority within an industry. That’s why many brands focus on consistently publishing new blog posts, but they often fail to understand the best strategy for maintaining or removing their older content. “Unless posts are grossly outdated or inaccurate,” continued McBride, “pulling down old blog content does more harm than good.”
