Organising Modern Learning & Networking Events

Jane Hart

This workshop looks at how to organise 4 different types of learning and networking events that use experiential, participative, collaborative and technology-supported approaches. Week 3: Networking Events.

The Collaborative, Sharing Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A few weeks ago I wrote about my recent participation in the 2013 Roundtable on Institutional Innovation , an Aspen Institute event that took a close look at the impact of digital technologies on the evolution of companies and other organizations. One of the most intriguing was The Collaborative Economy , by Jeremiah Owyang , a partner and analyst at Altimeter Group , whose research focuses on the changing relationships between companies and their customers. .

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.

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!

Meaning Conference Highlights – A Collaborative Future #lawwe

Luis Suarez

Not long ago I mentioned over here in this blog how one of the many reasons why I went through that extended blogging hiatus towards the end of 2012 was due to a rather intense business travelling schedule that took me on a tour of several different European countries to participate, as a speaker, on various conference events, customer meetings, enablement workshops and so forth. What an amazing event! Something other conference events should mimic and learn from a great deal!

From Social Learning to Workforce Collaboration

Jane Hart

Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed that I’ve changed this blog’s title from “Learning in the Social Workplace” to “Workforce Collaboration” Why? So, since people learn from one another as a consequence of working together, rather than focusing exclusively on the learning, I think it is about helping them work collaboratively and enabling learning to take place as part of that process. Collaboration Social learning

Who should be your Chief Collaboration Officer?

Jane Hart

There have been a couple of posts recently on the topic of whether organisations need to have a new role of a Chief Collaboration Officer (CCO). This is something close to my heart as I am in fact Senior Director of Collaboration in the Internet Time Alliance , and I have been working recently with a few organisations as they grapple with what it means to support a collaboration culture across the whole of their business.

Collaborative Modelling in AR (and VR)

Clark Quinn

And one that I thought was intriguing was co-creating, in particular collaboratively creating models that were explanatory and predictive. And, we know that collaboration is more powerful than solo ideation. So, a real opportunity is to collaborate to create models. What I was thinking of, extending my thoughts about AR in general , that annotating the world is valuable, but how about collaboratively annotating the world? They might even collaborate on doing that.

#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! Yes, I know you could say there was a bit of everything for everyone, which, I guess, is what every conference event should be aiming at eventually, don’t you think?

Snap Bird – Experimenting with Curation of Live Tweeting at Conference Events

And to that extent I think it is now a good time to help introduce a new experiment I have been playing with in the last few months and which I think may be of benefit to others as well, specially, if you are into finding out about highlights from the hundreds of conference events out there, mainly, in the Social Business space that we get to attend or not.

The Evolution of Collaborative Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For over a dozen years now the concept of collaborative innovation has been at the center of much of my work. The Internet, and all the social media platforms and applications in its wake have been one of the major enablers of collaborative innovation the world has ever known. In any event, IBM and its partners would provide support for the Linux-based offerings we sold regardless of how they were developed.

Collaboration and activation: the nub of the merger of physical and digital retail

Ross Dawson

In partnering with IBM for the second year the intention was to extend the impact of the event beyond the week and to drive ticket sales and in turn sales by tapping the social currency of influencers. Ticket sales have been considerably higher than last year, with 4 of the events sold out. Retail strategies for merging physical and digital are best envisaged and implemented on a large scale, tapping collaboration and activating buyers.

Technologies for collaboration and cooperation

Harold Jarche

I find the model useful to look at what kinds of social tools are most suitable for the type of collaboration or cooperation we’re trying to foster. For instance, there is a big difference between Sharepoint and Facebook, though both enable some kind of collaboration. Structured, goal-oriented collaboration is typical of what happens inside the firewall in a controlled access environment.

“collaboration is extremely important”

Harold Jarche

The Internet is an extinction-level event for the traditional firm. 3) We are now in a new phase of disruptive management innovation … (6) Continuous improvement in the previous wave of disruptive innovation is now the collaborative intelligence of the second.

Social Collaboration Services: the missing piece in the L&D jigsaw

Jane Hart

In the Workforce Development Services Framework there are 4 key service areas although there is a high level of overlap in the activities provided by the different service areas: Training/Instructional Services focus on designing, delivering and managing training, e-learning and/or blended learning events. Social Collaboration Services focus on supporting collaborative working and the building of internal networks, communities and collaboration spaces.

SWITCH festival shows the power and potential of cross-industry collaboration

Ross Dawson

I first met Mark Zawacki when I did the opening keynote at the ANZA Technology Conference in Silicon Valley in 2004, and Mark was also a speaker at the event. More recently I have met Catherine Stace , CEO of Cure Brain Cancer Foundation , who has brought inspiring and truly disruptive approaches to medical research philanthropy, by focusing on making research far more collaborative and effective rather than simply funding antiquated research models.

Collaboration Tools

Tony Karrer

As I mentioned in Real-Time Collaborative Editing , I had a fantastic experience participating in group editing of a Mind Map of collaborative tools during a session at Learn Trends. You can see the result below. But it was interesting to see the results exported which I've embedded below. I would expect the document to continue to grow and change, but thought it would be worth having it available in a text format as well (so I can find it when I need it).

Open Business – From Document-Centric to People-Centric Collaboration

Luis Suarez

Instead, I keep pondering about how we can transform and redefine the way we do business through our day to day workflow(s) and if there is an idea that keeps coming back stronger by the day is that one of perhaps facilitating the transition from document-centric collaboration into a people-centric one. Lately, I have been thinking quite a bit around the topic of Social / Open Business Transformation.
