Reflections on ISPI 2010

Clark Quinn

I’m quite attracted to the HPT (Human Performance Technology) framework, and I’m ever curious. One surprise was that the technology awareness seems low for a group with technology in their prized approach. Some noticed the lack of tweets from the conference, and there wasn’t much of a overall technology presence (I saw no other iPads, for instance). Tags: design mobile strategy technology

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study. For the 2010 study , IBM held more than 1,500 face-to-face interviews with private sector CEOs (80%) and senior public sector leaders (20%) from 33 different industries spread over sixty countries. Capitalizing on Complexity is the title of the 2010 study. Ever since the advent of the Industrial Revolution , we have made huge progress in applying science, technology and engineering to physical products of all sorts.

CRM+VRM 2010 Follow-up

Doc Searls

It’s been a week since VRM+CRM 2010 , and there have been many conversations on private channels (emails, face-to-face, phone-to-phone, face-to-faces), all “processing,&# as they say. For example, the race is on (reportedly, over $40 Billion a year) to upgrade CRM technology to improve predictive accuracy so that 3% will go up. Project Vendor Relationship Management is the thought leadership evangelizing this premise and encouraging technology development.

2010 Shift Index - Passion and Performance

John Hagel

The release of the 2010 Shift Index. Late last week, we issued the 2010 edition of the Shift Index , updating each metric with new data.  Executives need to look at all of the institutional and technological barriers that frustrate employees and prevent these employees from seeking out challenges that will drive performance improvement. Over two years ago, John Seely Brown and I set out on a quest, one that experts called “valuable, but foolhardy.” 

The Top Ten Emerging Technologies of 2018

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For the past several years, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has published an annual list of the Top Ten Emerging Technologies that would be potentially disruptive over the next three to five years while also providing significant benefits to economies and societies. The Top Ten Emerging Technologies 2018 was released in September, 2018. The full report includes a longer, one-page description of each of these technologies.

Control Technology Choice, Not Technology Use

Andy McAfee

For me, the most interesting part of the conversation came as I gave him one of my standard pieces of advice: exercise tight control over technology choice, and as little as possible over technology use. Tight control over technology choice ensures that a big organization doesn’t wind up with hundreds of disjointed deployment efforts and fragmented technology environments. I talked a couple days ago with the CIO of a huge global organization.

Predictions for 2010

Clark Quinn

Several technologies are poised to cross the chasm: social tools, mobile technologies, and virtual worlds. I expect to see more inspired uses of technology to break out of the ‘course’ mentality and start facilitating performance more broadly, as organizational structures move learning from ‘nice to have’ to core infrastructure. Each has available technologies, best principles established and emerging, and real successes.

Technological Unemployment and the Future of Work

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Few topics are as important, - and as challenging to anticipate, - than the future of work given our justifiable fears of rising technological unemployment. One such discussion took place this past September at the The World Summit on Technological Unemployment in New York. I moderated a panel on Technology and the Future of Work, where MIT economist David Autor and NY Times reporter John Markoff talked about their most recent work.

SharePoint 2010: The New Employee Gateway?

Dan Pontefract

Enter SharePoint 2010, due to release in Q2 of 2010. As customers begin to appreciate the delta between previous versions of SharePoint and the 2010 enhancements, it’s my belief that more and more organizations will utilize it as a basis for becoming the ‘employee gateway’, or, as I wrote earlier, a window into the organization. SharePoint 2010 has better 2.0 Perhaps I am naively oversimplifying things, but take a look at the SharePoint 2010 screenshot below: .

eLearn Magazine’s 2010 Predictions

Jay Cross

Four members of Internet Time Alliance submitted their thoughts to eLearn Magazine’s 2010 Predictions. Jane Hart, social learning consultant at Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies. Businesses in 2010 will become faster-paced and more unpredictable. Several technologies are poised to cross the chasm: social tools, mobile technologies, and virtual worlds.

May Big Q: Workplace Learning Technology 2015

Clark Quinn

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question of the Month for May is “What will workplace learning technology look like in 2015?&# This is a tough question for me, because I tend to see what could be the workplace tech if we really took advantage of the opportunities. Mobile technologies are taking off, we’re getting real power in technology standards (and still some hiccups), and we’re crossing boundaries between reality and virtual worlds.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

Before I start with any of my actual predictions, let me throw in an overall prediction that the year is going to start off slow for most people, but by the end of the year, we will all be thinking: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” But when I do these predictions, I focus on the stuff that’s part of the bigger trends and the potential that these trends have for impacting workplace learning professionals especially around the impact that technology will have. eLearning Technology.

Flipping the technology transfer funnel

Harold Jarche

Most business ideas are a bundle of two or more of our capability components [tangible & intangible assets - technologies, processes, people, IP, relationships]. For example, even if a business idea is based on a technological breakthrough, the overall opportunity is likely to also include other differentiating components, such as processes (say, a specific marketing process). For example, technology transfer processes. Tags: Learning Technology

It's All About the Business Model, - Not the Technology

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

New technology alone, - no matter how transformative, - is not enough to propel a business into the future. The business model wrapped around the technology is the key to its success or failure. He’s been conducting research on business model innovation for over a decade, and in 2010 published Seizing the White Space. In 2010, Blockbuster filed for bankruptcy, a victim of Netflix’s new business models. Technology-enabled business models.

A generation growing up with touch technology

George Siemens

Gartner (a Swahili term meaning “first we will make you give us a bunch of data to register for our site and then we’ll charge you a few thousand dollars for simple research reports&# ) is jumping on the touch mania that will continue to grow as more companies release their tablets/slates stating that “50% of the computers purchased for children will have touchscreens by 2015″ I can certainly understand the value of touch over keyboard and mouse interfaces.

eLearning Innovation 2010 – Top 30

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation the other day about whether there’s that much new going on in eLearning here in 2010. That said – I’m still under the impression that my central eLearning Predictions for 2010 is going to come true. At the end of the year, we will be saying: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” But I also thought I’d cheat and use what eLearning Learning is telling me the hotter topics are for the first 3 months of 2010. eLearning Technology.

What’s the right technology for schools?

Clark Quinn

At the end of a conversation the other day, the topic turned to technologies in schools. I was asked what I thought about the iPad in schools, and as I thought it through, I saw both pluses and minuses. Let me, of course, make this generic to tablets and PDAs. And not smartphones, as there are problems with phones in schools that I don’t want to get into. Having a wifi PDA (e.g. iPod Touch) is good enough for the issues at hand.

Technology and the winding English Country Lane

Dave Snowden

Its how technology should be used, to augment human intelligence and enjoyment. Would that all technology usage recognised the need to focus on augmentation of human needs rather than the fetishistic attempt to replace human capability. About a month ago I indulged myself in an upgrade to an iPhone from the trusty Blackberry and also the purchase of a sat nav. The latter, christened Niles for reasons too complex to explain here is proving an interesting travel companion.

Choose with care in 2010

Harold Jarche

— Dr. Brian Arthur, in the book, The Nature of Technology , says that “… everything emerges out of technology. It’s technology that gives rise to both modern science and the economy, and we tend to think of it in reverse — that science gives rise to technology and the economy gives rise to technology. But technology is more fundamental than either one.”

Design and Technology, Sitting in a Tree…

Adaptive Path

One constant that has stood the test of time in new media/technology projects has been the tension between designers and developers. The seamless integration between design and technology is becoming increasingly vital to a product’s success. Many firms deal with design and technology as if they are self-contained/unrelated entities and resource teams accordingly. I have worked on many projects where there was a noticeable gap between design and technology.
