The ideas behind my forthcoming book, The Plugged-In Manager, are gaining traction. People are coming to see the value in considering people, technology tools, and organizational process as a mix. My evidence is the recent contact I've had with news sources, other blogs, and consultants.Some highlights:

Can you think of other opportunities to spread plugged-in ideas? Santa Clara's wonderful media relations staff help faculty think about op eds for the broader media. Ideally, I'd like to respond to a major news story that shows an extreme example of either plugged-in or "un-plugged" management. Let me know if you notice one or have other ideas. The more we share, the better able we will be able to implement our own plugged-in strategies.
