The Collaboration Cycle

Dan Pontefract

In a previous instalment entitled “ The Collaboration Curve ”, I discussed the basic premise that over a period of time and as the use of collaboration methods increase, a user’s knowledge, engagement, network and ultimately their performance would increase. The various increases, however, occur one after the other, and is somewhat dependent on both the use of collaboration methods and the speed at which each stage occurs. How should one actually collaborate ?

Reflecting on Potential Workplace Trends

Thanks to the kind folks at SAP, my thoughts on topics such as “What is Shared Leadership?”, ”, “What If There Were No 9-5 Jobs?”, ”, and “What If We Never Meet Co-Workers Face-to-Face?”

Try Implementing Flexible Work Options to Increase Employee Engagement

Dan Pontefract

We are in the midst of one of the greatest eras of technological, social and cultural change. Today, mobile and other technologies keep us constantly connected, and this shift has affected how we interact with our families, how we spend our leisure time, and naturally, how we work. This change is creating an opportunity for companies to shift how they think about and conduct the daily practice of work. I work at TELUS , and have done so since late 2008.

Going Forward to the Past: Management Yahooliganism & No Longer Working From Home

Dan Pontefract

has mandated any Yahoo employee currently working from home (full-time or part-time) must relocate their fingers and keystrokes back to the office by June. That’s right … if a Yahoo employee was able to work from home, it’s no longer in the employee contract. Three lines irked me greatly in this memo missive: “Speed and quality are often sacrificed when we work from home.” Related Posts: I Am A Corporate Floater flat army book Ya, I Cry at Work.

Five Essential Tips to Effectively Work from Home

Dan Pontefract

Being a mobile worker means I can work from the road, a TELUS office, hotels, the odd coffee shop … and yes even at home. Several years ago TELUS introduced a concept called Work Styles where 70 per cent of its team members will work 100 per cent of the time from home or – like me – will work from various locations, including their home. 56 per cent said that having a flexible work option would motivate them to work harder.

Building Your Headquarters To Boost Employee Engagement

Dan Pontefract

When an employee spends 40 hours a week in a building that is not only lackluster, it is damaging employee commitment and morale, then perhaps it is time to rethink your organizational culture strategy. But when an organization does indeed create an office environment and atmosphere that emits harmony, collaboration and a sense of vitality throughout its confines, there is an undeniable and infectious culture that manifests. My place of work, TELUS, is another example.

“Oh, you’re one of those. You want to work anywhere, anytime.”

Dan Pontefract

I’d like to be able to move around, work from home, be in different buildings and generally work from anywhere.” You want to work anywhere, anytime.”. I want to work anywhere, anytime.”. I really wish I could work anywhere, anytime.”. These days at TELUS, more people than ever before are working anywhere, anytime. And that type of operating culture is paying dividends in many facets of our overall customer, business, team member and community strategies.

Redefining the Social Employee

Dan Pontefract

These days, with the advent of collaboration platforms, remote work styles and the quest to define an external digital DNA at sites like LinkedIn, BranchOut or Quora, the social employee has taken on a diversified definition. The company’s headquarters, where she works, has seen a population increase of 10 percent whereas the other eight employee sites are up anywhere from 20 percent to 135 percent. collaboration Culture employees engagement social

The Crisis of Meaning in the Knowledge Workforce

Luis Suarez

to me, are all part of the knowledge workforce and, if anything, instead of talking about different generations at work, I always tend to think that it is mostly about embracing and facilitating different working styles within the workforce. But what happens when each and everyone of those work styles don’t have a meaning, nor a purpose, for what they usually do? Collaboration Communities Enterprise2.0

A New Style of Work

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Tom Foremski , a journalist blogger and friend who reports on the business and culture of innovation in Silicon Valley Watcher , wrote an interesting comment in my blog: “In some ways, I see your post-retirement life as being somewhat futuristic, in that it will be the way many people will be working in the future. In some ways, this is the way Hollywood has been working for decades. The Web has now essentially become my primary work infrastructure.

Four Principles for the Open World by Don Tapscott #hippie2.0

Luis Suarez

More than anything else because of a single key concept that permeates throughout the TED Talk and which I have been advocating for a long while as one of the biggest advantages of making use of social technologies, whether for work or for personal use: Openness. As a network, or as a community, interacting and collaborating with one another. Still think your organisation could live by without breathing a collaborative corporate culture?

Loose hierarchies for knowledge management

Harold Jarche

This makes sense when you consider that knowledge sharing is deeply personal as well as social, so it reflects the larger culture and the particular workplace. The regression model showed that different organizational factors – especially Ba, work styles, and organizational control – were responsible for the resulting KM profiles of each local office: formal Ba in the U.S. Leadership Work Knowledge-sharing practices are highly contextual.

Looking Back on Four Decades: My Top 40 Learning Moments

I’m still working on being less abstruse. Higher Education professors who have never actually held a paying job in the corporate sector and opine about organizational design, culture or engagement will never be invited to my house for dinner. Having my direct reports physically around me was rule number one; that rule was thrown into the bin in favour of 100% flexible work styles. The more money you make, the less likely it is that you’ll actually collaborate.
