Career Advise – Listen to the Wisdom of the Linkedin Crowd – Big Data and Hr

January 17, 2013

Who is more likely to become the next CEO in a company – the CFO, the COO or the CIO ?

Well, ask the Linkedin crowd. There are now more than 200 Million Profiles on Linkedin and even most of the Senior Executives of the Fortune 500 companies have setup their profile. Now is the time to use the wisdom of the Linkedin crowd and start planning your career.

Of the current CEOs on Linkedin:
No.1: 110 000 have been the CIO in the past
No.2: 46 100 were the CFO in the past and
No.3: 37 400 had the COO Role in the past.

Well, guess what you might want to consider studying before going for your MBA or EMBA ?

Lately there has been a lot of research on crowd wisdom or swarm intelligence.
And it is a key source for great insights and forecasts. Just lately the swarm intelligence research of Peter Gloor MIT helped to predict correctly the outcome of the US presidential election in 2012.

The Linkedin Crowd will also tell you what university or business school to choose if you aspire to be the next CIO, CFO or COO….

What else would you like to ask the Linkedin Crowd ? Leave a comment and I will ask the Linkedin crowd for the answer…
