overcome by events

Harold Jarche

More workers will be used to getting what they need as they change jobs/contracts more frequently but remain connected to their online networks (online/offline won’t matter anymore). These changes will not be evenly distributed. I wrote the following in 2009 —.

On organisational change

Dave Snowden

It addresses the issue of organisational change using, in the main, a mapping and navigation metaphor. If we get heavy snow things will change, rivers can also flood but like all good walkers we have contingency plans and alternative routes we can follow.

Adapting to change

Clark Quinn

And, of course, that means many things have changed. I thought I’d just overview some of ways I’m adapting to change, so you can keep track and take advantage. This is a new online event conjured up by some colleagues to meet a need. We live in interesting times.

The making of meaning event (1)

Dave Snowden

Oh and there will be a chance to explore Mountains of the area on the weekend before the event for those interested. Not just in the here and now, and not simply through social media; the whole idea of Cynefin is that we sit within, influence and are influenced by, multiple constantly changing strands of connections which we can never fully understand. The post The making of meaning event (1) appeared first on Cognitive Edge.

Avoiding paralysis in major change

Dave Snowden

Firstly the Singapore foresight and horizon scanning event, then a steelworks in Australia followed by masterclasses and multiple government meetings in New Zealand. As those small actions start to build the underlying attitudes and beliefs change and then, maybe, the bigger initiatives will have impact and traction. The post Avoiding paralysis in major change appeared first on Cognitive Edge. Over the last three weeks I’ve been engaged in a diverse set of projects.

changing with change

Harold Jarche

“ To change with change is the changeless state. A good chair will help create a great experience for the speakers and the participants at the event. Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds. – Bruce Lee” via @janhoglund.

Habitual change

Dave Snowden

I went for a walk today, catching the five o’clock early eventing train from Bedwyn to Kintbury and then walking back along the Kennet and Avon Canal to my starting point. Then I had the Diabetes diagnosis and that triggered drastic change which allowed me to start the Round Wales Walk and return to the mountains of Snowdonia not to mention discovering the Brecon Beacons anew. Changing habits is difficult, but there seems to a point where it suddenly becomes easier.

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. As a process, I think about what I might do before, during, and after any culture change initiative. Culture change is a journey, not an event, after all ;). The post Measuring Culture Change appeared first on Learnlets.

Blog Post: Upcoming Knowledge Events

You will find a full list on my website where you can also subscribe to both regional e-mail alerts and RSS feeds which will keep you informed of new and upcoming events. I'll be speaking again at this event this year. NOTE THE DATE CHANGE.

JAC 2012 – Joint Alumni Conference Event Highlights

Luis Suarez

As you may have seen from my recent live tweeting from over the last couple of days, I am returning back home from Zurich, Switzerland, one of my favourite European cities, after having presented at, and attended, the excellent Joint Alumni Conference 2012 event on what I think has been one of the most inspiring events that I have attended in a while.

Social Business Forum Highlights – Reinventing Conference Events

Luis Suarez

As mentioned in previous blog posts, here I am, once again, putting together this particular series of articles detailing some of the various highlights from the recent Social Business Forum event held in Milan, Italy, on June 8th, that I attended and presented at. I mean, what are the chances of meeting up the same group of smart, talented folks at another tech event like that one? Well, the Social Business Forum event allowed for plenty of that and so much more!

Change in Education and What Needs to be Done

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Work Stream #4 – Speaking at Client Events

Luis Suarez

I guess there is another kind of unexpected thrill around freelancing that I didn’t think would be possible before, and yet it’s been one of the most rewarding I can relate to from my nearly three years long journey as an independent adviser on Social Business and Digital Transformation: speaking at clients’ events. That’s exactly how I feel about speaking at client events and why I treasure them to bits.

How technology is transforming events

Trends in the Living Networks

One of my speaking bureau just asked me to provide them with a few quick ideas on how technology is changing events, as one of their key clients is having an internal meeting to discuss their future use of technology in events. Before events: - Connecting with speakers and others attendees. Identifying who you’d like to catch up with at the event. Sharing content relevant to the event. Questions and discussion during events.

What do the events in Egypt mean for business?

Steve Denning

What do these events mean for business? Imperial administrations lack the agility to cope with an increasingly complex, rapidly changing world. Then some event sparks the collective consciousness and the intolerability of the situation becomes apparent to all. The advent of social media has made the situation infinitely more combustible and accelerated the pace of change. Once again, it is the economics that will drive the change.

Upcoming events

Dave Gray

I'll be participating in a number of events in the coming months. Here's an update on some of the events where I'll be speaking or delivering workshops. Working individually and in small teams, you will learn and practice visualization techniques that have been successfully used to improve innovation and accelerate change at some of the world's leading companies. At this event I'll give a short talk followed by an afternoon workshop.

Change or die

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

He travels the world, but increasingly delivers presentations and events in real time over the web. This is a total phase change. There are some companies that haven’t changed their core philosophies and management practices in 100 years and they never will. There are others that are hiring new kinds of leaders, and they are changing in a big way. We are in a rapidly changing, mind-blowing overly complex world out there today. Change Informal Learning

Changing the landscape of health

Dave Snowden

To manage a complex system we need to changes the dispositions of populations and small level social interactions. People are fundamentally influenced by the micro narratives of their day to day lives, rather than grand narratives of change and admonishment. I can already give my dietician access to my calorie counting app so she can check weekly and advise rather than rely in my reporting behaviour after the event in a consultation.

When Context Transcends Change Management

Luis Suarez

What if everything we have been told about Change Management over the course of the last few decades was all just … plain wrong? What if research keeps telling us, over and over again, how ’ most change efforts fail ’ ? What if we have been approaching change initiatives from the wrong side of the spectrum and we never realised about it till now when it might be a bit too late already? Isn’t it time for us all to shift gears and, at long last, change ?

The Paradox of Preparing for Change

John Hagel

Here’s an example: the best way to prepare for change is to decide what isn’t going to change. The theme of the gathering was “Changing the Game.” They gave me exactly three minutes to offer some thoughts on the best way to prepare for change. Talk about preparing for change! Well, I learned that change can be really, really exciting – it was an awesome opportunity to explore the globe at a very young age and experience so many diverse cultures.

Leadership in a Changing World

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

What are the critical competencies needed to lead in our fast-changing business environment? The key challenge confronting CEOs, - and senior executives in general, - is the relentless pace of change. But, w hile speed is the major dimension of change, it’s not the only one. Is the change evolutionary or revolutionary in nature? While ignoring major changes is bad, acting before understanding its implications could be worse.

Climate Change, Waste & Festivals: a collective fight needing a common understanding

Dave Snowden

it also has the potential to mobilise momentum and drive change through the sharing of stories about what people are doing to make the world a better place. Building small, incremental change has always been the complexity mantra. When thinking about change and transformation, we were particularly interested in the idea of apathy, simplicity and the importance of time, e.g. are people thinking ahead or are there “more important things to do”?

People, Events and Ideas

Harold Jarche

Average minds discuss events. The comments to John’s post have some name suggestions for the group of people who have the education and the communications tools to change society. Social media provide a way for this new “Yeoman&# class to act individually and collectively for change and self-determination. The ideas of others, events that we watch or are involved with, and the people we meet and interact with; all provide the context for our own ideas.

#e2conf 2011 Highlights – 10 Reasons Why I Enjoyed the Event

Luis Suarez

Let’s see all of those reasons… The Conference Venue: In the last few years, the #e2conf event used to take place at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel and although the venue may have been rather appropriate, by moving it this year to The Hynes Convention Center, the difference has been tremendous!

Dealing with Increasingly Improbable Events

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The essential idea in psychohistory, says the Wikipedia entry, is that “while one cannot foresee the actions of a particular individual, the laws of statistics as applied to large groups of people could predict the general flow of future events. Psychohistory relied on extremely advanced models which enabled a purely mathematic approach to predict future events. However, it was not able to cope with totally unpredictable events. How do you deal with such an improbable event?

Shhh… Jay attends “secretive” event

Jay Cross

You must know someone in the so-called club to get invited—conference organizers change annually and the event is not promoted. The event was invitation-only but hardly secretive, as more than 500 photos on Flickr will attest. Business Week tells you “what went on at the clandestine affair.&#.

Pragmatic change in the Now

Dave Snowden

The final day of the Supporting Agile Adoption event in Portland made for an interesting morning followed by a three hour drive to the Red Lion Hotel in Olympia (strongly recommended by the way) to get me close enough to Seattle for the 0715 flight tomorrow to London by way of a six hour layover in JFK. One of the other ideas I brought into play which got traction was to change or direct the narrative around IT in general and Agile in particular.

Changing the very essence of learning in the organisation

Jane Hart

Transformation will only come from changing the very essence of what learning means in the organisation. This means designing and faciliting events and experiences that support knowledge sharing and knowledge building, collaborative problem solving and relationship building throughout the organisation, ones that take place either face-to-face or online, but are much more in tune with the way people learn for themselves: experiential, participative and collaborative.

70:20:10 – Above All Else It’s a Change Agent

Charles Jennings

“Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” Formal learning - classes and workshops and online events - is the source of only 10% to 20% of what we learn at work.” That’s a large variance, not an exact number, but it does suggest that we need to look beyond formal learning if we’re to help create a step-change in performance. A 70:20:10 L&D strategy is a good starting point for this change process.
