Technology: Are You A Loser?

Two new-but-different ways to aggregate your online life – social networks, email, photos, blogs – make it easier than ever to obsess over your relationship with your computer.

A New Dimension to Performance Management – Part 1

Most performance management systems focus on tasks and outcomes, clarifying what each individual needs to do or deliver, and what is the result. This is important. After all, that’s why we are employed. There is work to be done, and results are required.
However, for a creative team—and arguably for every employee— there is a critical dimension missing from the above simplistic approach to performance management. It’s the measure of behavior. You’re probably thinking, behavior…we’re not in grade school anymore!
Read this article by Steve Benfield, Senior Director, Corporate Communications and Creative Director, SAS Institute Inc. and Insource Board Member, and learn Steve’s unique approach to measuring performance.

Highlights from the InSource October 2007 Event – WHITE NOISE

Building a high-performance creative team with staying power in the corporate setting is a formidable challenge. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was the development of the new package design system for the Publix brand private label and the in-house creative team that moved this initiative forward.

Creative professionals who came together in October 2007 for the InSource Fall Event called “White Noise – How A Predominantly White Label Created So Much Noise For Publix And Its In-House Team” had the extraordinary opportunity to learn firsthand how this work has generated success for Publix. Hosted at the Publix Super Markets Corporate Office in Lakeland, Florida, this half-day event focused on major insights of this work from an in-house perspective, with an emphasis on various aspects that are relevant to other corporate creative teams.

A Thesaurus Is Not A Dinosaur

Tip from InSource Board Member, Ivan Boden
Digging around for creative inspiration can be time consuming, and all too often designers hit rock bottom. The hidden idea or meaning that connects is just not there.

No doubt we use eons of methods to inspire creativity, however there’s one tool that should not be forgotten. The thesaurus.

Design begins with meaningful words. Unfortunately we’re not always provided good ones to work with. The thesaurus can help!
