Blockchain and Business Process Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

One of the most important such lenses is the impact of IT on business processes, that is, on how work is actually done across the various functions of an organization. . Examining the impact of IT over the past several decades through a process point of view, one can identify three distinct phases: first came process automation in the early years of IT, followed around the 1990s by enterprise-wide process reengineering and management. Business process automation.

continuous learning for collaboration

Harold Jarche

Team collaboration tools support the real social learning at work. How do I make sense of changing conditions and new knowledge? How can I collaborate better? You know you are in a community of practice when it changes your practice. Team collaboration. Collaboration is what happens when people work together for a common cause. To be effective, collaborative work needs to be done by cooperative people. They identified how work has to change.

Measuring Culture Change

Clark Quinn

Someone recently asked how you would go about measuring culture change, and I thought it’s an interesting question. So it’s plausible that you’d want to change, and if you do, you’d like to know how it’s going. Another indirect but more targeted measure might be the amount of collaboration happening (e.g. the use of collaboration tools) or even activity in social networks. Culture change is a journey, not an event, after all ;).

Being clear on collaboration

Clark Quinn

Twice recently, I’ve been confronted with systems that claim to be collaboration platforms. And I think distributed collaboration is one of the most powerful options we have for accelerating our innovation. Now, true collaboration is powerful. By collaboration in this sense I mean working together to create a shared representation. So one supported ‘collaborative conversations’ Um, aren’t conversations inherently collaborative?

Transmedia Storytelling and Collaborative Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Transmedia storytelling represents a process where integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience.

It reminds me of collaborative innovation , one of the most important concepts that many companies in the IT industry have embraced over the past decade. .

The Evolution of Collaborative Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For over a dozen years now the concept of collaborative innovation has been at the center of much of my work.

Intel co-founder Gordon Moore described what became known as Moore’s Law in a 1965 paper where he observed that the number of components in integrated circuits had doubled every year since their invention in 1958, and predicted that the trend would continue for at least ten years, a prediction he subsequently changed to a doubling every two years. The Foundation index has been growing at a ten percent CGR since 1993, and is the primary driver of all the other changes.
