These are times of rapid change. Innovative technologies—from the latest social media platforms to high-tech automated warehouses—reinvent the way we do work every day. Globalization and new nonlinear career paths continually transform our workforce. You know you must adapt, but simple awareness of these sweeping changes is not enough. How can you go beyond merely understanding this new world to creating unique new opportunities?The answer lies in being "plugged in"—not just to new technology, but also to processes and people, and, most crucially, to the way these elements fit together. The Plugged-in Manager presents and easy-to-understand and share framework, explained through three core practices:Stop-Look-Listen: What do you already know and have access to that will help you with this project?Mixing: How do you create a recipe that works for your situation?Sharing: How can you do more by getting others to join in this approach?
