Five Ways People Adopt And Love Change

Adaptive Path

Luckily, a communications expert named Everett Rogers looked deep and long at how human beings actually look at and choose to adopt something new and innovative. I love this because Rogers doesn’t look at what sells, but at what actually gets adopted and really, truly used.

Are Instructional Designers Making Themselves Irrelevant?


So what does that mean for the poor instructional designer when over 70% of the learning they create delivers poor customer experiences? The easy thing for an instructional designer to do is to rely on simple instinct and maintain the status quo.

Grand Unified Theory of Service Design, Systems Design, and Organization Design

Adaptive Path

I sat down with Jeff to pick his brain on putting the ‘service design’ in software-as-a-service. One is that I specialize in helping IT organizations and digital businesses bring together agile, DevOps, and design thinking in order to adopt new methodologies and be able to deliver more continuous value, so I’m really interested in the relationship between design and engineering and design and IT in particular.

There is a veritable blossoming of projects to help people learn about and adopt social media these days. The resulting curriculum which will live on this wiki and will also cover important organizational adoption issues, strategy, ROI analysis, as well as the tools.

Carrying forward

Clark Quinn

During my presentation in Minneapolis on future-looking applications of technology to learning, the usual and completely understandable question came up about how to change an organization to buy-in to this new way of acting in the world: to start focusing on performance outcomes and not courses. Then, of course, designing a solution for the real problem. design social strategy technology

Artificial Intelligence is Ready for Business; Are Businesses Ready for AI?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

There’s generally a considerable time-lag between the time we start reading articles about their exciting potential and their adoption by companies and industries across the marketplace.

Is Blockchain Now Transitioning to a More Mundane and Useful Era?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Most potentially transformative technologies go through the kind of adoption cycles that Orcutt has (metaphorically) compressed into three years. Blockchain was created around a decade ago as the public, distributed ledger for the Bitcoin cryptocurrency.

The ‘Least Assistance’ Principle

Clark Quinn

He was disagreeing with “buying rapid development tools to bash out ill formed ‘e-learning’ to an audience that will not only be unimpressed but also none the wiser - or more productive&# , a point I want to nuance. In The Nurnberg Funnel , he documented how this design led to 25 cards, 1 per learning goal, that beat a 94 page traditionally designed manual hands-down in outcomes. Tags: design

Artificial Intelligence is Ready for Business; Are Businesses Ready for AI?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

asks McKinsey in a recently published report - Artificial Intelligence: the Next Digital Frontier. “AI adoption outside of the tech sector is at an early, often experimental stage,” is the report’s succinct answer. “Few firms have deployed it at scale.”. Only 20 percent of respondents had adopted AI at scale in a core part of their business. 40 percent were partial adopters or experimenters, while another 40 percent were essentially contemplators.

In praise of Texture

Dave Snowden

It is a similar story-telling convention adopted in the Game of Thrones, where the white walkers are an enemy that do not tire, that are death personified (the COVID-19 virus has been identified to be a bit of a zombie virus ; there is nothing to kill as the virus is already dead).

Towards a Trusted Framework for Identity and Data Sharing

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For example, to buy alcohol, all you need is proof that the individual is over the legal drinking age. Current firewall, event sharing, and attack detection approaches are simply not feasible as long-run solutions for cybersecurity, and we need to adopt an inherently more robust approach.

The Big Shift From Engagement to Passion

John Hagel

You may buy yourself some time by expanding employee engagement, but it won’t be enough to keep up with markets that are demanding more and more rapid performance improvement. This isn’t an accident, but the deliberate product of the scalable efficiency model that all of our institutions have adopted. I’ve written elsewhere about the need to redesign work environments with the primary design goal of accelerating learning and performance improvement.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Diversity University started out as an educational MUD; Walden University was also an early adopter, and a whole bunch more. My contributions included this effort in learning design. I had designed OLe so that it used free-standing 'modules', and the IMS-LOM was perfect for this.

It also lowers training costs, and promotes a quick adoption of products. Was the first car you ever used borrowed, or did you buy it for yourself? This allows workers to have a hand in the design of their training program. It ensures a quicker adoption of products.

There’s generally a considerable time-lag between the time we start reading articles about their exciting potential and their adoption by companies and industries across the marketplace. You could track the status of your packages, access the latest sports results, check the weather of any city in the world or buy from an online catalog with nothing more than a browser and an Internet connection.

Reinventing Relationships

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Forty years ago, for example, the computer industry consisted primarily of expensive mainframes and supercomputers that only larger institutions could afford to buy and operate. As MIT’s Erik Brynjolfsson explained in a recent book he co-authored: “The companies with the highest returns on their technology investments did more than just buy technology; they invested in organizational capital to become digital organizations. In addition, the design objectives are quite different.

Should Knowledge Workers have E2.0 Ratings, Part 3

Andy McAfee

Many of the comments I received relate to the eternal debate over optimal incentive design, and whether it’s desirable (or even possible) to measure and reward effort vs. activities vs. outcomes. We’re also assessing the sociological impact of having such metrics available on adoption rate and other end user behavior. tools, but I’m not sure I buy that activity does correspond to value.

OER Lebanon - "Our mission is to ensure that the benefits of open educational resources reach every school and university in Lebanon and to foster equal access to quality education through the adoption of OER." He writes: "In the new context of inclusive access models, arguments about 'reducing the cost of college' and providing students with 'day one access' are increasingly ineffective at persuading faculty to adopt OER because publishers have completely co-opted these messages."

Scaling: merge, match & masticate

Dave Snowden

At the same time in the Agile community we have the controversies over SAFe where scaling seems to mean ​how do I get senior IT management to adopt Agile practice rather than how do I scale success per se. It still assumes a defined need at a level of granularity that will gain sufficient buy in to get resource allocation and with enough evidence of possible use to support that (reference here to the complex domain model ). Scaling as a subject seems topical at the moment.
