Irving Wladawsky-Berger

What are the critical competencies needed to lead in our fast-changing business environment?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Luis Suarez

In short, once you joined the company collaboration is a natural task / activity and, by default, you are pretty good at it.

Mass Collaboration Workshop, Day Three

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Darren Gergle Understanding and Bridging the Wikipedia Language Gap There is an extensive literature on Wikipedia, everything from collaboration to participation to embedded bias to the uses of Wikipedia data structures by AI and natural language processing application.

Measuring the Forces of Long Term Change

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

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.

Dan Pontefract

A joint effort of Capgemini Consulting and the MIT Center for Digital Business resulted in a wonderful report recently published entitled, “ Digital Transformation: A Road-Map for Billion-Dollar Organizations ”.
