Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

social networking can facilitate work, to actually analyze and distill some underlying principles. In his presentation on The Landscape of Collective Intelligence, he comes up with four characteristics of design patterns (or genes, as he calls them): What (strategy), Who (staffing), How (structure & process), & Why (incentives/alignment). This is a really nice systematic breakdown into patterns tied to real examples.

organizing for the network era

Harold Jarche

The network era, with digital electric communications, changes this. Organizations today should be designed more like the internet ( small pieces, loosely joined ) and less like attractive prisons. Last year I described several of my principles and models for the network era and showed how they related to each other. The network era needs new structures, not modified versions of obsolete models. Organizing Principle: Network Management.

Collaborative intelligence

Jay Cross

The title of her session: Evolving Collaborative Intelligence. Once a month, sixty or so people convene at SAP Labs for nibbles, networking, an invariably fantastic presentation, and discussion. Zann covered so much ground and presented so many provocative frameworks that I can only offer you a few sound bites from my notes: Collaborative intelligence is more important than collective intelligence. What if life itself is a pattern recognizer?

Mass Collaboration Workshop, Day Two

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

An example is social tagging networks. Note that coordination here is not really needed, in contrast to other systemss of mass collaboration. The tags establish a network of connections among the resources and the tags, and among the resources themselves, and the users who read them. 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.

If Your Enterprise Social Network Is a Ghost Town It’s Probably Due To Your Corporate Culture

Dan Pontefract

We deployed our enterprise social network last year, but it’s a ghost town. They’re windowless and the carpets look as though designers around the world have colluded with one another to see who can come up with the most bizarre patterns possible. I withdrew my gaze that was stuck on the purple, yellow and reddish-turquoise diamond patterned carpet to the audience, and return volleyed a few queries of my own. enterprise social networks leadership esn

Complexity and Collaboration

Harold Jarche

Collaboration is the only chance for a solution.&# The Internet changes the patterns of connectivity and makes possible new enriching variety in interaction. Our focus should be on the communicative interaction creating the continuously developing pattern that is our life. Collaboration Is More Important Than Ever by @elsua.

distributing power for the network era

Harold Jarche

We are in the early stages of an emerging era where network modes of organization dominate over institutions and markets. Networks naturally route around hierarchy. Networks also enable work to be done cooperatively, as opposed to collaboratively in institutions or competitive markets. What would an organization look like with looser hierarchies and stronger networks? In a complex and networked economy workers need more autonomy.

Designing for an uncertain world

Clark Quinn

My problem with the formal models of instructional design (e.g. Note: I let my argument lead where it must, and find I go quite beyond my intended suggestion of a broader learning design. However, most of our design models are predicated on knowing what we need people to do, and developing learning to deliver that capability. Instead, we should be doing pattern-matching and decision-making. Now think about learning design. We are seeing richer design models.

How Autism can Influence Design: In conversation with Steve Silberman

Adaptive Path

The book, a sweeping history of autism in both science and society, contains some powerful implications about designing for human cognition and what “normal” really means. Judy was a member of an early online network for autistic adults at the time that the diagnosis had become available to adults for the first time. JJG: This notion of building a better world for autistic people is where the work that we do as user experience designers really comes into play.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The talk is called "Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World" and I want to begin with a story that came across the wires recently and I thought was very appropriate for this venue. Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model.

Why Organizations Don’t Learn

Organizations need to conceptualize themselves as networks of individuals and teams who perpetually strive to create more value for customers.

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.

Principles of Networked Unmanagement

Harold Jarche

Collaboration is working together for a common objective, while cooperation is openly sharing, without any quid pro quo. In networks, cooperation trumps collaboration. Collaboration happens around some kind of plan or structure, while cooperation presumes the freedom of individuals to join and participate. As we shift to a networked economy, our organizational frameworks have to change. In a network you have to be perceived as having some value by many others.

The social Web before social networks: a report from 2003

David Weinberger

The Web was social before it had social networking software. It just hadn’t yet evolved a pervasive layer of software specifically designed to help us be social. The two talks, especially Clay’s, serve as reminders of what the Internet looked like before social networks. Here’s what for me was the take-away from these two talks: The Web was designed to connect pages. This is an incredibly powerful pattern. But it’s a pattern.

Harold Jarche

This is the great societal learning challenge today — sensemaking in a networked world. Our existing education and training systems are not designed for this task. The open-source sharing of energy will give rise to collaborative energy spaces, not unlike the collaborative social spaces on the Internet. We may discern some patterns from the past but our current challenges — as we shift to an electric-digital-networked age — are unique.

change the system, not the leader

Harold Jarche

We need organizations and structures that let all people cooperate and collaborate to get work done. It puts too much power in the hands of individuals and blocks human networks from realizing their potential. Depending on one person to always be the leader will only dumb-down the entire network. In the network era, leadership is helping the network make better decisions. Leadership is an emergent property of a network in balance. Network Era Management.
