Irving Wladawsky-Berger

David Weinberger

As those inputs change, you can change LibraryCloud’s workflow process once, and all the apps and services that depend upon those data can continue to work without making any changes. Thus the LibraryCloud Harvard has adopted is a good distance from the initial vision of a single API for accessing multiple libraries. According to a post by the Harvard Library , LibraryCloud is now officially a part of the Library toolset.

The survey asked about their progress in deploying nine major AI capabilities, including machine learning, computer vision, natural language text and speech processing, and robotic process automation.

How Not to Adopt an LCMS


Companies that adopt a new LCMS are challenging the status quo, reimagining the way content is typically authored, created and delivered. But it’s not as simple as installing a piece of software, and may necessitate a realignment of the learning and development team’s processes in order to be fully effective.

How to Support the Widespread Adoption of AI

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Surveys with thousands of executives, showed that most firms are only using AI in ad hoc pilots or applying it to a single business process. Only 8% of firms are engaged in practices that support widespread adoption. To support the widespread adoption of AI, companies must make three fundamental shifts.

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. I’ve found his 5 Factors most useful not near the completion of a program of work, but from the very start to consider onboarding and adoption just as much as a part of the experience as everyday use.

Halfway through each training, after describing the process, I always asked the same question: Why won't this work for you? Embrace Chaos This reminds me a bit of the adoption trick of letting everyone know how chaotic things are going to be when the new system rolls out. Make it half a solution or a partial solution or a flexible solution so that it can be adopted in ways that work for the individuals who have to do it.

IT Doesn’t Matter. Business processes do

Jay Cross

Consultants Howard Smith and Peter Fingar shot back a month later with a paperback retort entitled IT Doesn’t Matter – Business Processes Do. In 120 pages, Smith and Fingar skewer Carr, show why IT will matter more than ever, and explain how business process management creates riches. As long as there’s innovation, there’s room for making processes better. To optimize a process, the right hand must know what the left is doing.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

Can innovation be promoted through better processes? I have not been able to find any regular correllation between well adopted innovation processes and actual innovation outcomes, and I’ve been looking pretty hard. I want every knowledge worker to discover his or her own processes. Empowering knowledge artisans to use their own cognitive tools creates an environment of experimentation, instead of adherence to established processes.
