Harvard Library adopts LibraryCloud

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. New data can be added relatively easily, and because LibraryCloud is workflow based, that data can be updated, normalized and enriched automatically. Thus the LibraryCloud Harvard has adopted is a good distance from the initial vision of a single API for accessing multiple libraries.

The connected enterprise adoption curve

Harold Jarche

You have the enterprise social technology and you may have even developed training programs, in conjunction with supporting collaboration aligned with the workflow. These are the early adopters. [First.]

The Holy Trinity: Leadership Framework, Learning 2.0 & Enterprise 2.0

Dan Pontefract

And finally, corporate communications, marketing and even perhaps splinter social media teams are all either contemplating or incorporating social media, social networking and/or social learning concepts into their workflows. I find myself in the center of an intellectual tempest.

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.”

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. The majority of learning occurs naturally as part of the workflow.

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

from our 702010 towards 100% performance book) If learning is embedded in the daily flow of work, rather than away from the workflow, the idea that we need to develop ways to ‘transfer’ that learning into practical use disappears.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

Charles Jennings

To achieve these three targets, we need to think out of the traditional learning and development box – beyond the class/course and eLearning module approaches towards embedding a culture where learning becomes recognised as occurring within the workflow. Most people get it.

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.

SUNY Initiatives Supporting Online Learning Panel

Demonstration of lead processing workflow - feeds into existing 'Campus Connect' online lead system for individual campuses). But it will sit inside the SUNY federation, so students will already be in the system, and will provide a workflow-type functionality.

It takes time to be social

Harold Jarche

I think that one of the underlying reason is that these platforms, like KM and elearning platforms before them, are not integrated with the workflow. For example, email, frustrating as it may be , is part of most business workflows.

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.”. AI is now seemingly everywhere.

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. Initiatives such as Danone’s help open up more people to adopting and building development mindsets.

What Does the Training Department Do When Training Doesn’t Work?

Charles Jennings

Learning in the workflow is the way forward. this is where I have seen the 70:20:10 framework, when used strategically, help organisations adopt new and more effective practices. The global training industry is large and in growth again post-2008.

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

Jane Hart

Adopting a BYOL strategy will however require a different approach to learning and development. So they should not be forced to adopt this approach – only gently encouraged to see the value in it over time.

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.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

Anyone who has even the most rudimentary understanding of chess knows that to adopt a strategy based on determinism is to often invite failure. We need to help our leaders, managers and workers to better exploit the learning opportunities in their daily workflow.

Don’t drink the informal learning snake oil

Jay Cross

A brief quiz tells you whether your organization needs to adopt formal or informal approaches. Informal learning needs to be embedded in existing workflow, not heaped on top of it.). The Tragedy of eLearning. We’ve seen this movie before.

Standalone LMS is Still Dead (rebutting & agreeing w/ Dave Wilkins)

Dan Pontefract

The holistic big picture needs to keep in mind the workflow of the employee; we can’t send them to disparate tools, applications, technologies or sites to do their jobs. What we need to do is ensure we weave a formal, informal and social learning workflow together.

Design Thinking and the Workplace Experience

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

As the authors argue, design principles should be applied within the management domain itself, to help rethink business processes, workflows and the overall structure of the organization and thus create what it calls a New Workplace Experience (NWX).

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.

sCRM, the M:M Customer Crush?

Martijn Linssen

To Really Drive Enterprise 2.0 Forward We Need A Behaviour Change

Dan Pontefract

Laurie Buczek writes “ the big failure of social business is a lack of integration of social tools into the collaborative workflow.” They forget adoption occurs only when people behave in a way that allows collaboration to manifest across an organization.

Human + Machine: The Impact of AI on Business Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

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. This is quite different from using technology to automate specific tasks in a job or workflow.

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.

The reception has been warm, but the adoption has been slow, primarily because Design Thinking and Systems Theory need to take a dose of their own medicine and adapt to be relevant and resonant with this new audience.

Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS) for Managing Course Assets

Tony Karrer

They also handle asset management, but I really have not been seeing the kind of large scale adoption of LCMS products for that purpose. This is what Dawn Poulos talks about in How NOT to adopt an LCMS. You still do get back to the core questions: Are people using an LCMS to manage content assets and workflow across the enterprise? I received an inquiry from a reader at a large company that is continuously working on large projects with lots of course content running around.
