2013 Reflections

Clark Quinn

It’s appropriate to look back at the year, here at the end of it. Reflection is a powerful and all-too-neglected tool. My year started off with a bit of travel and ended up with a lot of thought, writing, and preparation. I started off with a bang, with two separate trips for presentations in Saudi Arabia with a few weeks of each other (phew!). The second included a paper that was a stab at rethinking formal learning: Redesigning Design (warning, PDF).

Complex domain: April 2013

Dave Snowden

I've been using the complex domain model for some time now since I first published it. One of my main aims was to move away from a simple categorisation of methods which is the all too frequent use of Cynefin into a more nuanced and varied understanding of complexity. There is a lot more to do here, but it's going in the right direction, Its gone through some minor changes but I don;t intend to repeat the descriptions of the dimensions here - read up on the link.

Autotelic: The Word of 2013

Dan Pontefract

To be absorbed in meaningful work is the quest for 2013. That’s right … autotelic is the word of 2013. Fast forward to 2013. Whatever the scenario, I hope you have the opportunity to become autotelic in 2013. Those that frequent this space will know I started a tradition in 2011 by instituting a “ word of the year “ In 2011, I urged people, teams and organizations to demonstrate reciprocity.

PKM in 2013

Harold Jarche

“The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” ” - Thierry de Baillon. Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. But what we loosely call knowledge, using terms like knowledge-sharing or knowledge capture, is often just an approximation.

HowTheLightGetsIn 2013

Dave Snowden

I've managed two days at the HowTheLightGetsIn festival this year which is a shame, last year I made the whole ten days. It all got a bit messy as we planned to organise a Cognitive Edge event around it and worked with the organisers late in 2012. However the price to be a part of the event, issues with transport and general workload meant that did not happen.

Although I tweet links to interesting resources as I find them, and collate them in my 2013 Reading List , the important thing for me about curation is also taking some time to analyse what I’ve found to try and make sense of it all, and consider how it adds to my own thinking and practice.

PKM Workshop 2013

Harold Jarche

That’s what I have been offering for a few years, and once again, due to several requests, a PKM Workshop from 28 October to 22 November 2013 is scheduled. There are a few ways to develop skills to be an effective sharer of knowledge in a networked enterprise. You can start, as I did, by researching sense-making and online cooperation in knowledge networks, try out different methods, and then develop your own. My own journey with personal knowledge management began in 2004.

The Drucker Forum 2013 edition that was recently held in Vienna, Austria –14 and 15, November — was one of those moments for me. There’s nothing wrong with national nepotism when one is glowingly referring and referring to Roger Martin and Don Tapscott (numbers 3 and 4 on the 2013 version of the Thinkers 50 list ) while being 8000 kilometers from home. Once in a while, you get inspired by events in your life that seem to be a precursor to real societal change.
