Share Best Practices - Patterns

Tony Karrer

What works in my marriage won't necessarily work in -- and may even damage -- yours. The comments are also interesting but focus primarily on the word "best" vs. "leading" or "better" … overall the suggestion was to be very careful about assuming because something works in one situation it will work in others. Making sense generates cues and allows one to recognize patterns, both in the nature of the problem and response.

State of the Net 2012 – People Tweet Tacit Knowledge – Part Two

Luis Suarez

This time around though by one of my favourite thought leaders and KM / Complexity mentors, the always insightful and incredibly knowledgeable Dave Snowden , whose blog , along with Euan’s , are two of my most essential, critical reads of the day, every day. Thus when I bumped into Dave’s recording of his keynote “ Tacit Knowledge “ I just couldn’t help finding some time and watch through it. Knowledge is basically collective in nature.

cooperation makes us human

Harold Jarche

Automation of procedural work is accelerating. What was considered knowledge work yesterday will be routine tomorrow, and workers will be replaced by software and machines. They can help us see patterns. We should not try to work more like machines in order to compete with them. In a world where our social networks provide the safety net once afforded by institutions and organizations, a different form of work behaviour is needed.

Man, Machine, and Work

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The June, 2015 issue of the Harvard Business Review includes a spotlight on Man and Machine: Knowledge Work in the Age of the Algorithm. Others are dismissive of such dire concerns while agreeing that we must work hard to ensure that our complex AI systems do what we want them to do. . Similarly, how can we now learn to adapt to and work with our increasingly smart machines? But a lot of brain work is equally valuable and also cannot be codified.

change the system, not the leader

Harold Jarche

We need organizations and structures that let all people cooperate and collaborate to get work done. Strong networks, combined with temporary and negotiated hierarchies to get work done, become the simple building blocks for an organization in a state of perpetual beta. Let people do work worth doing, the tools to do it, and recognition of a job well done. willing cooperation = lessening the emphasis on teamwork and collaboration and encouraging wider cooperation.

It’s interesting at the end of the year to go back through blog posts to see what my Best of 2009 is.

The Continuing, Transformative Impact of IT

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

And while not as well known and possibly not as impactful, the next four IT trends are likely to also be widely embraced over the next decade: automation of knowledge work, integrated digital/physical experiences, me + free + ease, and the e-volution of commerce. . Major technology innovations and global collaborations are needed to help us evolve to an economy based on more sustainable production and consumption patterns.

What is the Important Work?

Clark Quinn

Not surprisingly for regular readers, I think that the nature of work is changing. In essence, to do the important work faster. Call it knowledge work, call it concept work, the point is that execution will only be the cost of entry, innovation will be the necessary differentiator. The fact is, our brains are really good at pattern matching, and bad at rote work. Training people to do rote work is a dying enterprise.

[liveblog] International Conf. of Univ. Libs: Morning talks

David Weinberger

We should reinvent our spaces, from social spaces to high-tech knowledge commons. We generate lots of data, which allows us to be strategic, looking for patterns of use. The way knowledge, culture, and science are created, distributed, and consumed is changing. Identify, normalize, render visible the knowledge that our universities are producing.” Identify, normalize, render visible the knowledge that our universities are producing.

A new model for training

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

To be effective today they need to be constantly probing and trying out better ways of work. Management’s job is to assist this dynamic flow of sense-making and to respond to workers’ needs, within a trusted network of information and knowledge sharing. The main objective of the new training department is to enable knowledge to flow in the organization. Sensing patterns and helping to develop emergent work and learning practices.

Future of the training department

Clark Quinn

Entreprise Collaborative , a cross-cultural endeavor bridging English and French to provide a jumping off point on organizational collective intelligence (and co-led by my Internet Time Alliance colleague Harold Jarche ), is launching a blog carnival. The first topic is: the future of the training department in the Collaborative Enterprise. Really, we’re unmasking the chaos that we’ve been able to cover with observed patterns, and explain away the excepti0ns.

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging. Using SharePoint before, during and after courses This typically takes the form of sharing best practices, code examples, templates, links; posting announcements; having discussions; showing calendar items; supporting student profiles; supporting student project work; sharing notes, documents; providing course content. I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint.

The Seek > Sense > Share Framework

Harold Jarche

Simple standards facilitated with a light touch, enables knowledge workers to capture, interpret and share their knowledge. Personal knowledge management is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. But what we loosely call knowledge, using terms like knowledge-sharing or knowledge capture, is just an approximation. Good curators are valued members of knowledge networks.

Learning for the 21st Century

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Learning is the process of figuring out how the world works. Neurons in the minds of learners forge pathways and form patterns that convert the booming, buzzing cacophony bombarding our senses into the simple vista we call reality. It’s a dog’s breakfast of acquiring skills, information, knowledge, savoir faire, and more. THE CHANGING NATURE OF WORK. In a knowledge company, you are paid to think; that’s where intangible assets come from.

Organizations and Complexity

Harold Jarche

Knowledge-Based View. Knowledge Acquisition. Knowledge Capitalization. Humans work in complex environments and we are by our very nature unpredictable. I have met new friends, business partners and clients with social media, and like the authors of Trust Agents , I would say that a “no sales” approach works best in the long run. Corporations have shown that loyalty to the enterprise does not work both ways. It is how knowledge work gets done.

The Future of the Training Department

Harold Jarche

Before industrialization, work was local or industry meant cottage-industry. About three hundred years ago, work became an organizational matter. Factories require groups of people working together. Clocks measure working hours instead of the sun. Frederick Taylor uses time-and-motion studies to find the one best way to do individual pieces of work. That works when the world is stable, and things remain the same over time.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

Adoption in the Enterprise - It's Personal Adoption Pendulum As I do presentations where I discuss Tools and Methods for Knowledge Work , I find myself wondering about adoption levels of these tools, and the following pendulum definitely describes how my feelings swing back and forth: Social Software Deployment Levels Over the past few years, there's definitely been greater deployment of social software in the Enterprise.

Thriving in the Net-Work Era

Management in Networks

Harold Jarche

In networks, cooperation is more important than collaboration. Collaboration is working together toward a common objective. Implicit in many workplaces is that if you are not focused on the objective at hand, you are not doing any real work. This emphasis on collaboration blinds managers. They cannot see the potential of social networks for enabling sense-making and knowledge-sharing. Knowledge networks differ from company hierarchies.

Workplace Learning Professionals Next Job - Management Consultant

Tony Karrer

But there was another significant trend in the answers… Learning and Work Converge In a world where Knowledge Work and Learning is Inseparable , finding ways to support and improve work is the same as finding ways to support and improve learning. Jay Cross in Ten Years After puts it: In a knowledge society, learning is the work. Who in an organization is responsible for supporting and improving work?

Please, Hamel, Don't Hurt 'Em

Andy McAfee

blog “ The Facebook Generation vs. the Fortune 500 ,&# an entry in which he spelled out: “12 work-relevant characteristics of online life. Back when there was a thriving finance industry many of my students, including some incredibly bright, talented, and ambitious young people, wanted desperately to work in it. The Web works in strange and wondrous ways, and has a lot to teach any of us who are interested in making companies work better.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

As I got to work and tried to deliver results and benefits as quickly as possible, I’d be guided by a set of principles, many of which I’ve discussed in this blog: The company ‘knows’ the answers to our questions. The knowledge required to answer them exists within the workforce. This knowledge is widely diffused, constantly changing, and not contained in the mind of any single person (As Friedrich Hayek pointed out many years ago), but it is out there.

Working Smarter eFieldbook $12

Jay Cross

Working smarter is the key to sustainability and continuous improvement. Knowledge work and learning to work smarter are becoming indistinguishable. The accelerating rate of change in business forces everyone in every organization to make a choice: learn while you work or become obsolete. The infrastructure for working smarter is called a workscape. It’s not a separate function so much as another way of looking at how we organize work.
