Search

Tony Karrer

This post likely will be quite a bit different because I'm convinced that most people have used different search tools enough that they are pretty comfortable with their current search behaviors. My intent here is to possibly expand the options for the average knowledge worker to be able to search a bit better than they do today. Yes, I personally use Google 95%+ for searching. But I do sometimes jump to other search engines. Search.

working collaboratively and learning cooperatively

Harold Jarche

Collaboration + Cooperation. Two types of behaviours are necessary in the network era workplace — collaboration and cooperation. Cooperation is not the same as collaboration, though they are complementary. Cooperation differs from collaboration in that it is sharing freely without any expectation of reciprocation or reward. Collaboration is working together for a common objective, often externally directed by management or a client.

Blockchain - the Networked Ecosystem is the Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The essence of blockchain, notes the report , is that the unit of competition is the networked ecosystem , no longer a single enterprise. “As blockchain adoption continues to gather momentum, organizations must approach their blockchain strategies with the same rigor and commitment as any other new and transformative strategies.

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.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

In other words - How do we collaborate together in remote work teams to be as effective or even more effective than a team that works down the hall? Let me admit that I'm likely in over my head when talking about methods and tools for collaboration. So while I'm listing the following because they are good initial choices, there are a lot of Collaboration Tools out there. Teamwork Tips and Skills Are We Really Collaborating?

Network Learning: Working Smarter

Harold Jarche

We need to re-think workplace learning for a networked society. Formal, structured learning plays only a small role in getting things done in the networked workplace. Making sense of information, both personally and in networks, is becoming a key part of work. Social learning is about getting things done in networks. Network Learning. Network learning is an individual, disciplined process by which we make sense of information, observations and ideas.

How to replace top-down training with collaborative learning (1)

Jay Cross

Businesses around the world are transforming into extended enterprise networks but their training departments are stuck in the previous century. But this way of learning – autonomous searching and social collaboration – has not yet been re?ected To keep things simple in our following exploration of how corporate learning needs to change, let’s call the industrial-age (old school) companies Hierarchical and the network-era (2012) companies Collaborative.

Organizational Learning in the Network Era

Harold Jarche

Value from this knowledge is created by groups and spreads through social networks. Learning must be an essential part of doing business in the network era. Searching the Web and social media. Connecting in social networks and communities of practice. Learning and working are interconnected in the network era. If I’m looking for great examples of collaboration and social learning, do the folks in Training & Development model them?

How to Replace Top-down Training with Collaborative Learning (2)

Jay Cross

A wise Collaborative organization focuses its efforts where they’ll have the most impact. They have set up social networks for alumni and help them keep up with new developments. Collaborative organizations outpace hierarchies when the future is unpredictable and change is rampant. Companies accomplish the transition from Hierarchy to Collaborative by handing over more control to those that are closest to the customer. Second post in a series.

Learning through social networks

Harold Jarche

Education – a process with its main aims of socialization, a search for truth and/or the realisation of individual potential. All value is created by teams and networks. Learning really spreads through social networks. Therefore, social networks are the conduit for effective organizational performance. Blocking, or circumventing, social networks slows learning, reduces effectiveness and may in the end kill the organization (my conclusion).

The role of informal social networks in building organizational creativity and innovation

Trends in the Living Networks

For the last decade I have examined and applied social network analysis in and across organizations, for example in large professional firms , technology purchase decision-making , high-performance personal networks , and other applications. The more time you spend with the analysis of social networks in organizations and those firms that have applied the techniques, the more evident the power of these approaches. Use social network analysis to uncover creative leadership.

Building a collaborative workplace (or community. or network)

Nancy White

It is out today on the Anecdote site –> Anecdote – Whitepapers – Building a collaborative workplace. From the introduction: Today we all need to be collaboration superstars. The trouble is, collaboration is a skill and set of practices we are rarely taught. An organisation’s ability to support collaboration is highly dependent on its own organisational culture. Some cultures foster collaboration while others stop it dead in its tracks.

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. You create standardized descriptions, standardized search mechanisms. I searched yesterday. It''s rather more like a mesh network, in which each starling is reacting only to the seven starlings around it. The hashtag is a way of creating self-organizing networks.

Social InFormal – it’s the network!

Clark Quinn

We can start, however, with formal learning, because I see learning as a continuum from formal to collaboration. While our individual learning might involve a portal with resources and search engines, our social learning goes beyond this. We again see expressing ideas and adding feedback to others, but now it’s very task-focused, particularly in collaboration. are our network. It’s about what the network can add to our ability to do.

Social tools for networks

Harold Jarche

For example: Social bookmarks let me tag and search a wide array of bookmarks and by making them public they are shared with others, but through no extra effort on my part. Just providing access to knowledge creation and capture tools is a relatively easy first step in moving the organization to Enterprise 2.0 ; an essential step in working in complex networks versus complicated markets. During the initial implementation of these tools, there is no need to talk about collaboration.

The Smart Worker : relies on a trusted network of friends and colleagues

Jane Hart

The networked enterprise and learning support

Harold Jarche

Training is often a solution in search of a problem. Almost all value is created by teams and networks of people. Every node in the networked enterprise is unique but the network itself is even more important. Social learning is how we get things done in networks. My recent post on the value of the LMS stems from the perspective that the networked enterprise is a new organizational form that needs different support mechanisms.
