My point of view?

  1. These are the top-10 decks from 2012. Some very, very classics still relevant (like Carlota Perez, Roger Martin or McKinsey). Number of views of some documents are five digits, the lower positions four digits. Quite impressive numbers.
  2. I love SlideShare. It is a very effective way to keep up with developments in any professional field.
  3. I really appreciate everybody who is willing to share documents on the internet. Whether we can call this collaborative consumption, sharing economy or access economy, it is an excellent way to transfer knowledge, opinions, insights and data. Thanks to all institutions, organizations, professionals and persons who were willing to upload the documents somewhere in the internet. And also thanks to those who have a fine nose for picking up relevant content.
  4. Being a Dutchman, I include Dutch decks and papers. For the first time, a Dutch paper from Berenschot and Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (i studied management and marketing of services at the RUG, which is merely coincidence) is included in the annual top ten.

Fieldstudio social design methods menu by Luciy Kimbell and Joe Julier

[slideshare id=15451201&doc=fieldstudiosocialdesignmethodsmenu-121202085739-phpapp02]

Written and edited by Lucy Kimbell and Joe Julier, it is a resource for social innovators and entrepreneurs who want to use approaches based in design and ethnography.

Sharing this menu is an intervention into current debates about the extent to which toolkits can really help communicate practices based in design and ethnography and make them available to non-specialists. Other recent toolkits and resources to support design and innovation include Frog Design’s Collective Action Toolkit, and NESTA’s Prototyping Framework, and IDEO’s Human Centred Design Toolkit, as well as other resources which focus more on products such as the d-school’s Bootcamp Bootleg.

Where the Social Design Methods Menu is distinctive is
– its combination of approaches from design, management and the social sciences
– its testing and iterating in the field in particular through teaching MBA students at Said Business School as well as social innovators and entrepeneurs
– its view that a toolkit probably can’t do much on its own, without new behaviours, cognitive frameworks and new values, and an attention to leadership and collective action, accompanied by a recognition that using tools changes the user and vice versa

This document is in perpetual beta – we welcome feedback and may eventually release a future version, should resources allow. In the meantime please share with us your uses and modifications and criticisms.

trendwatching.com’s 10 CRUCIAL CONSUMER TRENDS FOR 2013

2013 will be the perfect storm of necessity and opportunity: some economies will do OK(-ish), others will be shaky, but in whatever market or industry you’re in, those who understand & cater to changing consumer needs, desires and expectations will forever have plenty of opportunity to profit. A remapped global economy, new technologies (or ‘old’ technologies applied in new ways), new business models… hey, what’s not to like?

Hence this overview of 10 crucial consumer trends (in random order) for you to run with in the next 12 months. Onwards and upwards:

My point of view: check it end 2013 and yes Europe’s is still depressed but some of these trends really emerged, appeared and disappeared.
