A complex look at task assignments

Clark Quinn

And I’ll be the first to acknowledge that it’s complex, as the diagram represents, but let me tease it apart for you and see if it makes sense. I’m trying to integrate meaningful tasks, meta-learning, and collaboration.

Organizations and Complexity

Harold Jarche

Tweet I’ve discussed this table before, but I’d like to put it all the links together to highlight what we need to do with our organizations and structures to deal with complexity. Complexity. How we can support emergent practices in the increasingly complex enterprise: COMPLEXITY. Patti Anklam , in discussing value networks and complexity states: Understanding of complexity provides a practical guide to managing context.

Diversity, complexity, chaos and working smarter

Harold Jarche

Complexity, chaos and enterprise-architecture ~ by @tetradian – via @DavidGurteen [explores the under-represented Chaotic domain of Dave Snowden's Cynefin framework]. It is accepted that rapid change and the complexity of overlapping issues is the norm.

Mass Collaboration Workshop, Day Two

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Note that coordination here is not really needed, in contrast to other systemss of mass collaboration. Response: I don''t think it is completely different - when you read an article, I understand some, I don''t understand some, I try to use it - I would lable this a collaborative process. Reefercne to a buncch of theories by title - complex systems, socio-cultural construction, situated learning, etc). They create content collaboratively.

Get outside the disciplinary box

Harold Jarche

Tweet A most interesting post by Nick Milton at Knoco got me thinking again about complexity. I like the 2 X 2 diagram showing how increasing complexity makes us dependent on creative individuals and increasing collectivity makes us dependent on more processes. complexity

The Connected Culture

Chaordic is any self–organizing, adaptive, non-linear, complex system, whether physical, biological, or social, the behaviour of which exhibits characteristics of both order and chaos or, loosely translated to business terminology, cooperation and competition. Collaboration & Learning.

Whilst I knew (and still know) a connected and engaged culture is critically important for today’s complex and complicated organizations, something was gnawing at me. and I came across this Venn diagram.

Autonomy and Value in Social and Workplace Learning

Charles Jennings

My colleague Jane Hart recently shared the diagram below on her blog. Learning in the Modern Workplace’ Model Jane’s diagram shows the increasing value that can be released through exploiting learning opportunities beyond ‘the course’ – or the curriculum.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

Human behaviour and the nature of organisations both tend to be complex and highly variable, and neither lend themself to deterministic approaches. When we’re dealing with human and organisational learning and performance we’re dealing with highly complicated and complex systems.

How to learn and learn-to-learn

Clark Quinn

I’ve also learned from collaborative assignments, working and learning together. What’s your top advice for someone who wishes to develop faster and learn complex skills in modern workplaces? . I was asked by a colleague to answer some questions for a project on how to learn.

A North American-centric market share diagram is available here. Synchronous teaching, learning, and collaboration tools have matured significantly during this time period. Well, technology is getting complex. Very complex. While Blackboard is unable to write a press release that includes clear statements like “we have purchased these companies&# , I have to give the company credit for the acquisition of Elluminate (and Wimba).

Driving results through social networks

Jay Cross

You could do a search-and-replace, putting “informal learning&# where they write “collaboration,&# and you’d end up with a practice guide to socially mediated learning. This matters, because managers must choose the optimal networks for their situation: Work and innovation are inherently collaborative endeavors, but as the need for collaboration increases, the demands on people’s time skyrocket.

I'm not capturing his increasingly complex diagram. But is it possible to create works of art collaboratively, he asks. Eli points out that schools of art have been somewhat collaborative; people at least influence one another. The closest he can find to a collaborative model are ssome string quartets and rock bands, but even rock bands are dominated by one person (he says).

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Real people are complex, integrated beings. By definition, this is a collaborative, community-based approach, for it’s others who help us define what is relevant. Know-when (process and project management skills, both self-management and collaborative group processes).

Connecting and Communicating through Effective Conversations

In other words, in adding to the volume and complexity of information systems, we have added relatively little value, and in some cases actually reduced value. What if a company creates an IT infrastructure but nobody uses it?

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

They may be papers, lessons, diagrams and images, videos, or anything else. But in any field, students will have to graduate from the simpler transmission mode of instruction to the more complex immersion mode of instruction. Now they compete worldwide – I just took part in an online WizIQ session, through a very nice collaboration tool built and run by Indian software engineers. The following is a set of responses to interview questions I answered over the weekend.

This is only a very partial chart of these language, and really, if you were going to draw a full chart of these languages, this is just the derivation of different languages from their sources, but if you were to map the influence from one language to another language to another language you would get a very complex diagram. I love this diagram. This is one of my favourite diagrams in the entire world. I have a diagram in Spanish, how about that?

However, even storyboards can be complex to create, hard to update, and even harder to develop from. New tools allow annotation, collaboration, and co-creation visually. To me, when you talk visual thinking, I normally think of the wonderful diagrams that people can create from your concepts (see Marilyn Martin's picture of my eLearning 2.0 There certainly is big value from being able to take concepts and turn them into diagrams, pictures, visualizations.
