The wonderful world of the wiki

Dave Snowden

There are some features of a wiki that provide very novel ways of working and I am now moving beyond Wikipedia to the wider potential for their use. But adoption is an issue, it is (like complexity) a different way of thinking and acting and people seem to love their inefficiencies.

Open Business – From Adoption into Adaptation

Luis Suarez

As I have mentioned in a recent blog post, you would remember how I have now moved into a new job role within IBM, as Lead Social Business Enabler for IBM Connections (both internal and external), where I am much more heavily involved with IBM’s knowledge workers’ own adoption efforts of social business and social technologies. At the same time, it has allowed me to witness how over the course of time those waves of adopters are getting narrower and narrower.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions. So, of course, I went to eLearning Learning and I looked at Wiki , Collaborative Learning with Wikis , Wikis and eLearning 2.0 , Wikis Corporate eLearning , Social Learning with Wikis , Wiki Security and a few others. Here’s some of what I found: Why a Wiki? I wanted to collect a few resources around this topic for use in these discussions.

Wiki Owner

Tony Karrer

Stewart Mader points us to Sarah Denman's look at the four groups most likely to be involved in a wiki or other enterprise 2.0 From Masie's recent social learning survey it appears that there is a lot of adoption by learning professionals. Why are we not seen as a player when it comes to Wiki or Enterprise 2.0 implementations. The list is: IT HR - and no it doesn't include learning or training - it's more the compliance side of HR.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

You can find all sorts of interesting resources via eLearning Learning around Adoption. Not surprising, the terms most closely associated with Adoption are Adoption of Social Software and Adoption of Enterprise 2.0. There are some great resources on this such as: Ten tips for choosing & using social software Adoption of Web 2.0 Revisited Social Media - The Challenge of Adoption - Rob’s Dummies Guide The secret sauce to successful Enterprise 2.0

In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 However, I think the answer about adoption rates is going to be quite different for these things with Wikis and Mashups being adopted at a very high rate. RSS and Blogs have much slower adoption. We will dump Dreamweaver and RoboInfo in favor of Wikis.

Use of Wikis as Compared to Other Tools

Tony Karrer

For an upcoming panel session that will be looking at where eLearning is going, I was trying to get a ballpark sense of how much eLearning is being done with various tools as an indicator of where we stand in terms of adoption of eLearning 1.0, One thing I would say is that I would expect that we'll see adoption of Wiki tools a lot more - but many of the uses will be more as a replacement of web page creation than as a eLearning 2.0

The revolution brewing in the world of work: Q&A with Rod Collins

Steve Denning

When leaders are bosses, organizations naturally adopt the disciplines of top-down hierarchies to assure that the individual intelligence of the leaders is properly leveraged across the work of large numbers of people. When leaders are facilitators, organizations adopt the disciplines of self-organized networks that are designed to leverage collective intelligence. Steve: The title of the book says we live "in a wiki world."

Dave Snowden

Quotes also act as linguistic aporia so I am also storing them on the Cynefin wiki for the common good. I recently tweeted it as a possible reason “why people adopt SAFe, 6 etc.”

Dave Snowden

Yesterday I raised the question of boundary conditions that will arise with our shift to an open-source, wiki-driven approach to methods and also concepts. Those are the most coherent and the least risky approaches we can adopt.

Flexuous flight

Dave Snowden

Remember that the Alpha and Beta points are all about ambiguity, early adopters creating something with exciting capabilities. I have been very busy with the above-mentioned wiki and other matters so the blog has been neglected.

George Siemens

Martin, as chief Moodler, has contributed enormously to the adoption and development of learning management systems (with Moodle 2.0 apparently being a significant step forward in social networked learning: site-wide cohorts, portfolio support, external blog feeds, updated wiki, community hubs, etc) in education. We (as in TEKRI ) are sponsoring/organizing the upcoming Moodlemoot in Edmonton from May 1-5, 2011. Stephen Downes and Martin Dougiamas are keynote presenters.

e-Clippings (Learning As Art): Now this is how it is supposed to work!

Mark Oehlert

The podcast is about the use of blogs and wikis within Motorola. Three quarters of the company participates by posting toblogs, wikis, forums, and FAQs. Any public-facing blogging or wikis(e.g., the CTO has a blog, there is a wiki for the Q) are somethingseparate.

FAQ 32

Adios Ed Tech. Hola something else.

George Siemens

Others have been more decentralized and unstructured – like blogs, wikis, and social media. My early interest was in blogs and wikis in learning. Two of our NSF grants are focused on language and discourse analysis and using big data to explore roles that learners adopt in variously configured knowledge spaces (Wikipedia, Stack Overflow, and MOOCs).

Performance Support

That’s how we use Google and corporate wikis and instant messenger. Jay does speak to this in his post, but I'm not sure that the adoption of Enterprise 2.0 He later asks: Overall, what are corporate blogs, feeds, aggregators, wikis, mash-ups, locator systems, collaboration environments, and widgets, if not performance support?

Flexuosity untangled

Dave Snowden

I’ve used Innovators~Early adopters~Early majority~Late majority~ Laggards with the various percentages over the years although I normally combine the first two and change the percentages a bit, based on that prior DataSciences work.

Tools Used

Clark Quinn

Twitter adoption is higher than I would have thought. Some things that jumped out at me: Clearly Education is ahead of Corporate adoption, otherwise the numbers are fairly well aligned. Then to compare with adoption by people in Government. Government is much more like Education in adoption than Corporations. Given many of the challenges they face, I would have thought that adoption would have been more like corporations.

Across the chasm

Harold Jarche

I’ve written before how I use the chasm model to explain my professional work of 1) seeing what is ready to cross the chasm by 2) staying connected to the innovators & being an early adopter so that 3) I can help mainstream organizations. Which ones are now being picked up by the Early Adopters (like me) and finally, which technologies and ideas are ready to cross the chasm to the Early Majority? Early Adopters. Wikis.

Training Method Trends

Clark Quinn

If someone can get to your online reference (stored on a wiki) through their smart phone's browser, is that mobile learning? Big winners: Communities of Practice, Wikis, Blogs, Podcasts. Warning that on Blogs and Podcasts, the numbers are so low that any adoption looks bigger than it really is. And I would expect that Wikis will continue to grow - actually my guess is that this is the fastest growing item over the next couple of years.

Wikipatterns - A Pattern to Emulate

Tony Karrer

Found this via a post on EdTechPost: Wikipatterns It provides patterns for various roles and adoption patterns. What's great beyond just finding out about Wikis is the beauty of how the information is presented - as patterns. FAQs are a great tool, patterns applied like this is also a good tool

On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a suit

Harold Jarche

Using wikis or Google Documents means that everyone can see what the others have contributed. I was able to look at the revision history of the wiki and show that they had not even contributed on those issues. From these widely dispersed groups we got blogs, wikis and micro-sharing as tools to help get things done. You see, on the Internet, nobody knows you’re a suit … and that’s a major barrier to adoption.

Wiki 196

Should Employees Be Incented to Use Social Technologies?

Dan Pontefract

Social collaboration technologies such as internal instances of blogging, micro-blogging, video sharing, discussion forums, idea sharing, wikis, and so on are all key aspects of being collaborative. Humans behave differently when incentives are on the table; rather than passively waiting for employees to collaborate or use social technologies, putting financial rewards on the table will expedite adoption.

A Review of SAP Jam

Dan Pontefract

We went live with Jam in late summer of 2013, and thus far I’d say we are relatively satisfied with what it can do, and where we’re at as an organization in terms of adoption and usage. Wiki pages created – 2455. Wikis. There must be a way to delineate between photos in the master view that are profile, wiki-based and knowledge/learning related.

Review 189

Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

Geoffrey Moore’s analogy of “ crossing the chasm ” is that any new technology is quickly adopted by innovators and early adopters, but there is a chasm to cross in order to get the more pragmatic majority to adopt the new technology. My consulting work is mostly bridging the chasm: I am an early adopter myself, and use this experience to work with the early pragmatic majority.

The Collaboration Curve

Dan Pontefract

We can include such opportunities as wikis, blogs, micro-blogging, user-generated videos and webinars, discussion forums, virtual worlds, mentoring, coaching, chalk talks, etc. It increases first because, typically, we are not obligated to give back – we can take all we want, and this is through the process of adopting (and adapting) to collaboration technologies and methods. . Now that I’m on a mission to merge the terms Social Business and Enterprise 2.0

Scaling the Edge: Cynefin™ as a journey

Dave Snowden

the mix of 360º feedback from peers and clients, narrative journaling and wiki-participation will all give us data that reflects many months of shared work and thinking that we can use to measure both theory and practice as a by product of network knowledge creation. In part that was to reflect a shift in the market from early adopters who love theory to a more mature need that wants method. For most of my life I’ve been working with various forms of symbiosis and synthesis.
