  • HR Performance Metrics & Earning that Seat at the Executive Table HR Performance Metrics & Earning that Seat at the Executive Table Anisa Aven, CEO of TurnKey Coaching & Development Solutions with Sri Chellappa, President of Engagedly Recorded: Jan 18 2017 30 mins
    What it really means to be a strategic HR leader.

    HR leaders who want a seat at the executive ​"​strategy planning​"​ table need to become Human Resources critical thinkers who align their people plans (HR strategy) with the strategic goals and profitability of the company. (Look at any HR discussion forum, and you’ll find some version of this question: How can HR get a “seat at the table” and become a strategic business partner?) But most HR leaders find themselves occupied in a problem-solving role as employee reactionaries; "we need a new hire"... "we need disciplinary help" "We have a problem employee"... "We need our managers to get training on the new compliance laws." Far too often, people-pleasing HR leaders fail to cultivate the mindset necessary for creating strategy that adds value to the overall organizational success. This not only stems from traditional HR expectations which focus on people, compliance, and problems but also from HR leaders not managing their own strategic value and ​intentionally ​building their department​ and initiatives ​​​​​on a profitability mindset.​ ​ Companies that want to ensure future success will look to HR to furnish better succession plans, more effective methods of retaining employees, programs to improve employee engagement, and refined performance management and training processes. (If they don’t find what they need from HR, they will reduce budgets, outsource, and shift responsibilities to other service departments.)​ HR departments won’t see improved budgets or more power and responsibilities until there’s a shift in HR mindset and a focus on HR Strategy that aligns with business needs. ​

    This relaxed chat addresses how HR leaders can earn that seat at the table by focusing on profitability, innovation, and the growth of the company.

  • Exploring Mobile VR: Insights and Strategy Exploring Mobile VR: Insights and Strategy David Mullett, Virtual Reality Content Innovator, Virtualize: david@virtualizevr.com Recorded: Nov 30 2016 36 mins
    Mobile VR is going to be far and away the largest market for virtual reality in both the immediate term and as the VR market expands. This is where VR is going to come in and disrupt entrenched competition in the digital landscape. Currently less than 1% of PCs worldwide are powerful enough to run the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, so producing VR for low end hardware specs on Mobile VR is going to be the best strategy for accessing large numbers of consumers. 5G and expanding wifi is going to explode current bandwidth limitations and be the backbone for next generation Mobile VR experiences. Together with the new WebVR format, 5G and Mobile VR will be the place to build your disruptive VR application and open up a whole new realm of solution, acquisition, and engagement. Through social VR, sharing, avatars, and solutions-based VR, Mobile VR is going to be the brand of VR that changes the world. What can you build in VR that has the same value, or more value, than non-VR applications?
  • Augmented Construction: How Virtual Environments are Impacting the Physical Augmented Construction: How Virtual Environments are Impacting the Physical Rob Charlton, CEO, Space Group & Adam Ward, Director, BIM Technologies Recorded: Nov 30 2016 48 mins
    In an age of perpetual advancing technology, it’s often difficult to keep up with what’s going to be the “next big thing”.

    Traditional construction methods are fast being overtaken by modern building processes, and what we’re now terming; digital construction.

    As industry innovators, we’re championing the leap from digital construction to augmented construction. There is scope for augmented reality to play a major role in helping construction teams in the field understand how various systems and components fit together during production. But more importantly, it can facilitate a route for architects to take their designs into a virtual environment before the high risk move to construction.

    The current process for a structure is that it is designed in 3D, transferred to 2D documents and then built in a virtual

    3D format. The transition from 3D to 2D and back again can often lead to errors, therefore, what if we could cut this middle step out altogether?

    Just imagine being able to put on an AR headset and see exactly which line on a 2D construction document corresponds to a given object, such as a section of pipe or cable network. Being able to bring drawings into a physical model, giving a sense of scale, proportion, form and space.

    In this webinar, we’ll take you through the following:

     What is Augmented Construction

     Technological advancements and what benefits they bring to the industry

     How to use AR effectively

     What role does data play in this?

     Example projects, who’s using this now

     The next step
