Luis Suarez

How Narrating Your Work Helps You Become More Effective by Saving Precious Time

Luis Suarez

But it looks like, apparently, there are some potential risks along the way: mainly, knowledge workers not wanting to participate (through blogging or microblogging, as primary examples) due to lack of time , since their day to day workflow seems to be interrupted abruptly due to that lack of integration of social technologies into where the real work happens.

Reflections from 2011 – A World Without Email – The Documentary

Luis Suarez

Well, 4 years ago if people would have asked me that very same question, I would have probably said that email would be dying a very painful and slow death over the course of time, as the Social Web and Enterprise Social Software tools continue to take by storm the corporate world as the preferred methods for knowledge sharing and collaboration.

I heart Activity Streams.

IBM’s Social Business Jam – Are You Jamming Yet?

Luis Suarez

I am sure at this point in time you are very familiar already with the concept of IBM Jams , since we have been running them since 2001, but in case you may not have been exposed to them just yet, they are these massive online collaboration platforms a la Forums where a bunch of people gather around to share their ideas on a given topic and discuss, learn and nurture further conversations as a result of interacting with other fellow participants.

Reflections on 15 years

Clark Quinn

We also have rich new ways to interact from microblogs to wikis (collaborative documents). There is also recognition that the model of individual innovation is broken, and that working together is far superior to working alone. The critical component for organizations to thrive is to couple optimal execution (the result of training and performance support) with continual innovation (which does not come from training).

Jay Cross

Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and Fast Company say collaboration and collective intelligence are the engines of innovation. We rely on colleagues and social networks to separate the signal from the noise; their advice makes our experiential learning productive. Collaboration is the key to success in both working and learning; they usually take place simultaneously. Richer cross-department contamination and collaboration.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

2000 – Learning Objects Also: Portals, CoI I wrote my paper 'Learning Objects' in 2000 - it was the product of a presentation I did on IMS-LOM a few months earlier, building on a lot of the idea people like Dan Rehak had already developed. What made my paper different, I think, was that I had already worked out a number of the practical applications (and problems) with OLe, and so I was in a good position to present the full case from principle to product.

Generations, Social and Enterprise: adopt vs adapt

Martijn Linssen

Social Business is taken or rather defined by Muhammad Yunus of the Grameen Bank & Nobel prize awardee fame. ;) Collaborative Enterprise makes more sense IMHO. Though triggered by tech usage patterns, these will be reliant more on the mental model innovation rather than tech innovations that the various vendors claim to be doing. Yet who would argue 20 years later that the virtual standardization around Microsoft Office has resulted in a huge increase in productivity?
