How Not to Adopt an LCMS

Xyleme

Companies that adopt a new LCMS are challenging the status quo, reimagining the way content is typically authored, created and delivered. Here are some of the most common mistakes organizations make when adopting a new LCMS: Trying to shoe-horn existing process into a new system. One of the reasons organizations adopt an LCMS is to increase efficiency by streamlining processes, which often requires reimagining — and even removing — some of the existing processes.

Exploring Business Types and Business Models

John Hagel

But I’ve also written a lot about business types/roles, including a popular Harvard Business Review article almost 20 years ago. Many of you have approached me to ask, so what’s the difference between a business model and a business type? And, if there is a difference, what business models should each business type adopt? And, not to keep you in suspense, there is a difference between business models and business types as I use them.

Facilitating Adoption of Web 2.0 Tools

Tony Karrer

Nancy White just posted Second Wave Adoption where she discusses various aspects of helping adoption of Web 2.0 type approaches. This is definitely an interesting question and something I've written about before: eLearning Technology: Adoption of Web 2.0 Nancy's post has some ideas (slides) about how to facilitate adoption and she points to a few other posts: Focusing , Stimulate people's imagination , trigger inventiveness.

Adopting The No Asshole Rule: Don't Bother If The Words Are.

Bob Sutton

A Cool Old Study » Adopting The No Asshole Rule: Dont Bother If The Words Are Hollow. Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Adopting The No Asshole Rule: Dont Bother If The Words Are Hollow : Comments. I'm just wondering who "polices" the rule if a company adopts it. or, what if the boss is an asshole but understands enough about human nature - is enough of a narcissist - to adopt the rule so he looks good but then applies it selectively?

Never Underestimate the Power of Education and Enablement

Luis Suarez

When thinking about education and enablement in a corporate environment around a social business adaptation programme that may well be underway across the organisation, there are typically two different types of initial reactions as to how most businesses would confront the whole topic of enabling the workforce.

The straw man fallacy

Confession of sin, moving to the mercy seat and whole scale, and unthinking adoption of the new is expressed very much in the language of conversion. One of the things that most irritates me on social media is the complete ignorance people seem to have of the Straw-man fallacy in logic.

My objection to Taleb’s anti-fragile for example is not that the idea doesn’t have value, but systems that grow stronger through failure have been known for a long time and in my reading are seen as a type of resilience.

AI Technologies Are Fundamentally Changing How Work Gets Done

Is Blockchain Ready to “Cross the Chasm”? Lessons from the Internet

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Earlier this year, IBM conducted the largest study to date on the state of adoption of blockchain. With such technologies, you typically have a relatively small number of early adopters. A larger number of followers are waiting to learn from the early adopters’ experiences, while the laggards are not yet sure what the technology is about or if it applies to them. The Internet’s early adopters arrived in two phases.

It has yet to cross the chasm from a market dominated by early adopters to a wider mainstream market. Such blockchains will help create new markets by expanding the types of assets that can monetized and exchanged as digital tokens.

My/Our research …

Dave Snowden

They saw no issue that each fad was supported by the same type of data. You know have a figure, a statistic to drive people to adopt your idea. I’ve long pointed out to over enthusiastic proponents of ‘story telling’ that the phrase has a double meaning in English and the most dominant one is to tell a story.

Flexuous focus (1)

Scrum was becoming increasingly abstract, codified, and focused as well as being fairly new and if you look at this history of Agile its sudden growth and adoption is critical to the diffusion power of Scrum.

Adaptation: The Key to Become a Socially Integrated Enterprise

Luis Suarez

Earlier on in the week, my good friend, Eric Zigus , put together a rather thought provoking blog post that surely has got me thinking big time about the whole topic of adoption of Social / Open Business and about the different techniques that fellow practitioners get to employ to help other knowledge workers embrace new technologies, whatever those may well be.

Five Steps to Making Your Content Mobile Ready

Sales-type employees require mobile learning for different types of quick content consumption. So, it''s a popular concept, but I don''t think the adoption for learning our technology inside to supplement for their jobs is quite there yet.”. It can come in phases, just like adoption. It seems that almost every day we are inundated with more stats about how mobile is becoming an even more integral part of our lives.

The Productivity Paradox: Digital Abundance and Scarce Genius

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For example, McKinsey recently conducted a global online survey on the current state of AI adoption, garnering responses from over 2,000 participants across a range of business functions, industry sectors, geographical regions and company sizes. Overall, the survey found that the business world is beginning to adopt AI, but only 21% reported using AI throughout their companies.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

But, despite its market acceptance, a recent McKinsey report found that AI adoption is still at an early, experimental stage, especially outside the tech sector. Based on a survey of over 3,000 AI-aware C-level executives across 10 countries and 14 sectors, the report found that 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 still waiting to take their first steps.

Thinking about design ‘thinking’

Dave Snowden

I’ve been thinking about the whole approach we are adopting to design thinking as the Whistler retreat approaches. It allows me to identify four types of practice that apply in different circumstances. We started a journey on this at the same location last year and we are currently shifting into a formal method with associated tools and training.

Separated by a common language?

Dave Snowden

Often when I see people (particularity in the Agile world) use the Stacy Matrix they actually use the simplification adopted by Brenda Zimmerman. So our third key distinction is that Cynefin retains an assumption that adopting natural sciences as a constraint gives us greater confidence and anticipatory capability under conditions of uncertainty.

5 ways tech startups can disrupt education

George Siemens

Once an organization has settled into a revenue stream that provides some security, it’s almost impossible for that organization to adopt approaches that harm or cannibalize that revenue stream (Blockbuster and video rentals, Microsoft and Office). Or, if learners prefer greater autonomy, more flexible paths can be adopted. What type of tool, or functionality, do you think would disrupt education? What types of tools would teachers need to disrupt education

Development Mindsets and 70:20:10

Charles Jennings

I’m sure we have all looked around us at colleagues and family members and seen these different mindset types – or people behaving in these very different ways. These type of people are are more receptive to continuous learning. Development Mindsets I have been focussing on the important role of development mindsets as an starting point for adopting the 70:20:10 model for some time.

Learning is Behaviour Change: why is it often so hard to help it happen?

Charles Jennings

People fail to adopt healthy lifestyles even in the face of certain curtailment of life. 90% of patients with heart disease in a study at Johns Hopkins University failed to adopt a lifestyle change in spite of major heart surgery. We certainly can only effectively measure learning by observing and determining changes in behaviour, or allowing people to demonstrate the nature of changes in behaviour brought about through some type of learning activity or another.

Yet another study by Bersin & Associates (now Bersin by Deloitte) published in March 2012 reported that “ Organizations with strong informal learning capabilities, including the adoption and use of social learning tools, are 300% more likely to excel at global talent development than organizations without those competencies.”

The second type would be priced at a more reasonable rate for the hard back version which would be held for a bit before the paperback version. The third type in my experience gives rise the problem implied by the heading.

On the other hand, this approach can be used to monitor the ebb and flow of data in real-time, outliers are seen as potential signals to explore rather than inconvenient data points to remove, and the raw, unprocessed, and disintermediated data is kept in its original form for as long as possible in order to hold on to its meaning (UNDP’s Regional Innovation Center is diving into capturing exactly this type of data with partners from Governments in Asia Pacific).

Automation and the Changing Demand for Workforce Skills

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Leadership and human resources will also need to adapt: almost 20 percent of companies say their executive team lacks sufficient knowledge to lead adoption of automation and artificial intelligence. Almost one in three firms are concerned that lacking the skills they need for automation adoption will hurt their future financial performance.”.

Unfortunately, the evidence suggests that failure to be effective happens five times more often than success.” Such a high incidence of failure can be found across industries and countries regardless of the objectives of the digital transformation, including customer experience , the most common type of transformation. The digital age was born around 25 years ago with the public release of the Netscape browser in 1994.

Mastery and competence

Dave Snowden

In one of the breakouts today a few of us spent three sessions working on a wider education initiative around Agile adoption. The big problem in this type of case based learning is that people try and repeat the end point of an evolutionary process, failing to take account of history. My point was not to challenge the success, or the value of what had been achieved, but I am more cautious about its adoption.

‘Form’ing learning

Clark Quinn

While there are a number of steps to take (including how you work with SMEs, the details you attend to in your content, etc), their internal vocabulary talks about ‘knowledge checks’ and the goal was to do those better as they migrate existing courses to a new platform with a suite of assessment types. First we worked through the different types of assessment types (moving from true/false to more complex assessments like ‘submit and compare’).

The Collaboration Commons Idea

Dan Pontefract

If we want online collaboration to happen, if we want adoption and participation to increase, if we want true interaction and if we want people to become interlocutors , perhaps we start thinking (or re-thinking) the physical layout of our libraries and offices. And yes, there are loads of examples out there today … libraries and offices already in positions of strength by already acting on this type of thinking.

Scaling: the perversion of order

Dave Snowden

To put it simply it's all about what you can manage, and what types of things give you indicators of propensities and dispositional states. A permeable boundary is a type of enabling constraints in that you have to achieve a certain status of capability to pass through it. It is about variety of numbers, but also of type. Sick Stigma, SAFe, many evaluation programmes based on gamed outcomes and so on all represent that type of perversion.
