How Not to Adopt an LCMS

Xyleme

Modern learning organizations understand that, in order to provide learners with the resources they expect (such as content personalization, mobile learning, microlearning, and just-in-time support) new technology tools are no longer a “nice to have” — they’re a necessity.

Design Thinking and the Workplace Experience

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Design has long played a major role in product innovation. But in the last few years, a shift has been underway bringing design to the very core of the business. “ The Evolution of Design Thinking : It’s no longer just for products.

How to Transform a “Big, Old” Company into an Agile Digital Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

“As consumers, we take digital technologies for granted… We don’t wonder why these things are possible; we simply expect them,” said Designed for Digital a recently published book by Jeanne Ross , Cynthia Beath , and Martin Mocker in its Preface. What does designed for digital mean?

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

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the past few years, the necessary ingredients have come together to propel AI beyond the research labs into the marketplace: powerful, inexpensive computer technologies; advanced algorithms and models; and most important, oceans and oceans of data. AI is now seemingly everywhere.

Human + Machine: The Impact of AI on Business Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Last week I wrote about the impact of blockchain technologies on business transformation. The book reminds us that technology has long been transforming business. This is quite different from using technology to automate specific tasks in a job or workflow.

Embedding Learning in Work: The Benefits and Challenges

Charles Jennings

If people learn as part of the workflow then this learning is more likely to impact performance in a positive way. By their very nature informal and social learning is embedded in the daily workflow. ADDIE (or some other instructional design approach) ruled.

Re-thinking Workplace Learning: extracting rather than adding

Charles Jennings

One clear finding presented was that: “t hose activities that are integrated into manager and employee workflow have the largest impact on employee performance, while those that are distinct events separate from the day-to-day job have less impact.”

Start with the 70. Plan for the 100.

Charles Jennings

Extending Learning into the Workflow Many Learning & Development leaders are using the 70:20:10 model to help them re-position their focus for building and supporting performance across their organisations. They are finding it helps them extend the focus on learning out into the workflow.

Human + Machine: The Impact of AI on Business Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Last week I wrote about the impact of blockchain technologies on business transformation. The book reminds us that technology has long been transforming business. Like electricity, IT and the Internet, AI is becoming one of, if not the most important technology of the next few decades. A recent McKinsey study found that AI adoption outside the technology sector is still at an experimental stage, with few firms having deployed it in production at scale.

IT Doesn’t Matter. Business processes do

Jay Cross

The big argument is that “Business process management (BPM) systems can, for the first time in the history of business automation, let companies deal directly with business processes: their discovery, design, deployment, change, and optimization.” Imagine the potential of: Workflow learning.

Is it time for a BYOL (Bring Your Own Learning) strategy in your organization? #BYOL

Jane Hart

In April 2011 Forrester Research estimated that 47% of users were self-provisioning technology and expected the number to rise to 60% by end 2011, and Jensen & Kline (around the same time) estimated that between 1/3 and 2/3 of employees were meeting their needs by working around L&D).

Enterprise 2.0 transition

Harold Jarche

The discussions focused on how and in what manner OD and HR can support adoption & transformation processes. That may mean reducing the number of managers; empowering people who are customer-facing; or significantly opening up the workflow and making it more transparent.

What is innovation?

Harold Jarche

It turns out that to develop a ‘cumulative culture’ – technology that constantly ratchets up in complexity and diversity – a species needs to be able to share information very accurately. Knowledge artisans not only design the work, but they can also do the work.

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

All-in-all the implication for L&D professionals has been to make their traditional offerings of carefully designed, time-consuming and often slowly developed structured modules, courses and programmes relevant to fewer and fewer stakeholder needs.

Adaptive Path

Recently, I lead a project that included “designing the future of X”. Existing technology. Impact of workflow change on users. Adoption incentive. Brandon talks about this at UX Intensive’s Design Strategy day. They will guide your design process just as much as your great ideas. Any time you have these kinds of projects, the sky can be the limit. But, without limits, the chances of success are often low.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Reusable Learning Resources The initial development of online learning technology began at scale with the development of the learning management system (LMS) in the mid-1990s. These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Major LMS companies such as WebCT, Blackboard, Angel, Saba and Desire2Learn all adopted standards originally developed by IMS. which is essentiallythe cMOOC design).

Five Myths of Social Learning

Xyleme

Social learning is bi-directional and user-generated content and feedback can be a valuable asset for instructional designers to develop more compelling and timely learning, whether that learning is published to a formal course, a non-formal podcast, or an informal blog. So while implementing social media tools provided by an LCMS or LMS vendor may ensure departmental adoption, experience and today’s market show us that enterprise adoption of these tools is not a likely reality.

Time for the Training Department to be Taken Seriously

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model.

Increasing “Jointness” and Reducing Duplication in DoD Intelligence

If these negative trends continue and a new “joint” business model is not adopted wholesale, the promise that sparked IRTPA is in danger of being unrealized. The underlying assumptions regarding the prevailing finished intelligence workflow have not been questioned.

Toward a Pattern Language for Enterprise 2.0 : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

Andy McAfee

work — from how knowledge workers used technology to get their jobs done before all these weird (and wonderful) Web 2.0 I’ve had for some time now the vague sense that the iPhone, Twitter, Gmail, Googling, Facebook, Wikipedia, Delicious, and other runaway successes are trying to tell us something about how we want to use technology in our lives and in our work, and if we enterprise technologists listen carefully we’ll hear what that something is.

I Know It When I See It

To put some flesh on each of these terms… Freeform means that the technology does not in any meaningful way impose, hardwire, or make and enforce assumptions about - Workflows - Roles - Privileges - Content - Decision right allocations Instead, people come together as equals within the environment created by technology, and do pretty much whatever they want. I’d want that system to have a standard order-to-ship workflow that was very hard to deviate from.
