working collaboratively and learning cooperatively

Harold Jarche

Collaboration + Cooperation. Two types of behaviours are necessary in the network era workplace — collaboration and cooperation. Cooperation is not the same as collaboration, though they are complementary. Cooperation differs from collaboration in that it is sharing freely without any expectation of reciprocation or reward. Collaboration is working together for a common objective, often externally directed by management or a client.

Clark Quinn

Exposing the invisible and annotating the world were familiar, but collaborative editing of spatial representations resurrected one of the most interesting (and untapped) potentials of virtual worlds. Helen Papagiannis kicked off the second day of the DevLearn conference. She explored the possibilities of AR with exceptional examples. She went through a variety of concepts, helping us comprehend new opportunities.

Blockchain - the Networked Ecosystem is the Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Getting to scale - Collaborating with competitors to create value for the industry. Governance is the biggest challenge in creating such industry networks, which requires collaborating with other industry players, including otherwise fierce competitors. It requires the close collaboration of its various stakeholders, including existing financial institutions, startups, merchants, government regulators, and individuals around the world.

reflecting on the future of knowledge

Harold Jarche

But, another equally important goal is to provide appropriate technologies for collaborative work in a complex global environment. Much less effort is put into helping people connect, in spite of collaboration technologies. In too many workplaces, people do not have time collaborate and share deep knowledge, much less cooperate across silos. At greater levels of abstraction, knowledge work becomes more challenging, increasingly collaborative and social in nature.”

ILT is not Dead

Xyleme

In fact, according to the 2019 Brandon Hall Study , ILT remains the primary form of learning delivery in organizations – a whopping 94%, as opposed to eLearning at 77%. Face to face interaction also lends itself for a higher level of collaboration. Organizations continue to focus on implementing new and innovative ways to implement digital learning. While this trend continues to grow, statistics are showing that instructor-led training (ILT) is not dead.

workplace learning — yesterday, today, tomorrow

Harold Jarche

Ten years ago — workplace learning in 10 years — I wrote that in 2019 much of the workforce will be distributed in time & space as well as in engagement. Today, we are using the PKM framework to improve collaboration at a global financial corporation. I also projected that work and learning will continue to blend while stand-up training will be challenged by the ever-present back channel.

from training to learning

Harold Jarche

In a fundamental way, all work is about learning: it is about learning to fit in and to collaborate, about learning to take initiative when appropriate, it is about really understanding customers, about acquiring intimate knowledge of the products and services the company sells and how they can fit into customers’ lives.

Will Humans Be Better Off in an Increasingly AI-Based Future?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Improve human collaboration across borders and stakeholder groups. After decades of promise and hype, artificial intelligence is finally becoming one of the most important technologies of our era. As AI continues to both spread and advance, will it enhance human capacities or will it lessen human autonomy and agency? By 2030, will most people be better or worse off than they’re today?

What is innovation?

Harold Jarche

Innovation requires both goal-oriented collaboration and opportunity-driven cooperation, because complex problems cannot be solved alone. In writing almost 100 posts on innovation since 2007, it’s time to put the core observations together into a cohesive narrative. Here goes. Innovation is fifteen different things to fifteen different people.

connecting leadership

Harold Jarche

We need organizations and structures that let all people cooperate and collaborate to get work done. It can be summed up as — inclusive, trusting, and collaborative. Optimizing for any single institution or market to collaborate better is not enough. What is leadership ? In the past year I have written many posts on the subject from a variety of perspectives. Much of it is about ‘connected leadership’ — where people must be both teachers and learners.

How to Support the Widespread Adoption of AI

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

From siloed work to interdisciplinary collaboration. Learning to create a new smart workplace, where humans and machine collaborate to attain major increases in business performance will take time and considerable reskilling.

Cognitions By Contexts

Clark Quinn

Social and Work is collaboration & cooperation, working together specifically on projects and also more broadly a willingness to contribute when/where/ever. I have, in the past, talked about the three cognitions: situated , distributed , and social. Similarly, I talk about aligning with the contexts: how we think, work, and learn. I then wondered about how they interacted. Naturally, I diagrammed it (surprise, right?). I created the 3 x 3 matrix, and then tried to fill the boxes.

Monocarpic banality

Dave Snowden

I’ve been singularly blessed with collaborators over the years and also with a strong of managers who gave me top cover. I’m starting to think that it is only a matter of time before I graduate from being merely curmudgeonly and cynical to full blown cantankerousness. Now these are commonly seen as negative words. Johnson defined a curmudgeon as “An avaricious churlish fellow; a miser, a niggard’.

more than re-skilling

Harold Jarche

Most work is done in groups and often collaboratively. Here is the advice of the co-founder of Degreed on a ‘ workplace self-training paradigm ‘ First, encourage them to think of reskilling as a game — one they now have more control over winning … Next, help workers manage their skills with regular checkups to evaluate their current expertise against market conditions … Finally, work with employees to pinpoint opportunities to put their new skills into action.

seeing the value of cooperation

Harold Jarche

It describes how a diverse group of mostly independent researchers who worked in their individual offices were able to cooperate and even collaborate due to a change in the built architecture. Before people can learn from each other or collaborate on issues, they need to build connections – that is, gain some understanding of who the other person is, including their skills, depth of knowledge, experience, and attitude toward others.

extracting human value

Harold Jarche

The organization is permeable, interconnected and collaborative and can change in shape. Automation + Capitalism makes for a perfect storm that many of us will not weather. Does ‘Artificial Intelligence’, the current top buzzword, really mean that we program our biases into automated decision-making systems, seal them in a proprietary black box, and let the status quo reign, with no illusion of ethics, morals, or humanity?

Harold Jarche

Social media can facilitate the sharing of implicit knowledge through conversations to inform the collaborative development of emergent work practices. The printing press changed the world. It introduced new forms of expression and enabled better and faster information sharing. Print enabled individual interpretation of the bible and resulted in the questioning of the established Christian church and later the Protestant Reformation. Written manuscripts became obsolete luxury items.

Most everyone agrees that such a culture entails five key behaviors: tolerance for failure, willingness to experiment, psychological safety, collaborative, and non-hierarchical. Collaboration but with Individual Accountability. “ People who work in a collaborative culture view seeking help from colleagues as natural, regardless of whether providing such help is within their colleagues’ formal job descriptions.”. Innovation has been a hot topic for the past few decades.

Building Trust

Clark Quinn

Using distributed tools, we’re able to coordinate and collaborate. Also, collaborating with relevant comments and revisions similarly has built trust. Some months ago, I talked about I was working virtually in a couple of instances. One team got together physically last week to get work done. And the outcome was intriguing about how we’d ended up building trust virtually that manifested in the real world.

solving problems together

Harold Jarche

Exceptions require cooperation and collaboration to solve. Most situations at work can be considered from the perspective of — is this a known problem or not? If it’s known, then the answer can be looked up or the best person can be found to deal with it. The answer may even have been automated or outsourced. Known problems require access to the right information to solve them. This information can be mapped, and frameworks such as knowledge management help us to map it.

PKM in action. Part 3

Harold Jarche

in order to work collaboratively, we have to learn cooperatively. In his book, Never Stop Learning , Bradley Staats describes eight elements that make up ‘dynamic learning’ Here are the highlights from a Knowledge at Wharton interview. “a willingness to try things, have them not work out, but learn from that and move on” 2. “if we don’t focus on the process, we’re never going to get to a good spot” 3.

discussions) and collaboration (group projects). So, in my last post , I talked about exploring the links between cognitions on the one hand (situated, distributed, social), and contexts (aligning with how we think, work, & learn). I did it one way, but then I thought to do it another, to instead consider Contexts by Cognitions, to see if I came to the same elements. And they weren’t quite identical! So I thought I should share that thinking, and then come to a reconciliation.
