The best articles of 2013
Honours for CEO’s article
We were delighted to discover last week that one of CEO Kevan Hall’s articles had been one of the most popular of 2013 on HR management site, PersonnelZone , and was included as part of their top articles list on inHR, their regular newsletter amidst a range of other fantastic articles, including some on appraisals and performance management. You can see the full article here: Organizational Development in the Matrix,
This lead us to take a look at our own top performers.
Global Integration’s best of January 2014
On our own site, our own picks of January’s blogs include:
- Why leadership development programs fail
- Creating a Common Culture in Global Organizations
- Do Virtual Team Members get the Leaders they Deserve?
Honourable mention must also go to cross cultural awareness pieces on Chinese New Year (甲午贺新春 Happy New Year by consultant TH Ong), and on Australia Day by consultant Tim Mitchell.

(Based on views during the month. Time sensitive logs on specific cultural events, charity events, conferences and celebrations were excluded for their lack of current relevance)
The most downloaded article of the year was People and Strategy: Revisiting Matrix Management
