The Collaboration Curve

Dan Pontefract

and rephrase as Collaboration , I thought it would be a good time to introduce “ The Collaboration Curve ”. . Over a period of time, and as collaboration methods between citizens increase (employee to employee, employee to customer, student to faculty, etc.), so too will an increase be found in knowledge, engagement, networks and performance of said individual participating in the collaboration experience. Next up will be “The Collaboration Cycle”.

Why Don’t You Have an Internal YouTube Video Sharing Service?

Dan Pontefract

The average user spends 15 minutes each day viewing videos. Sure, much of the content on YouTube may be coming from traditional media (clips of TV shows or movies, music videos, commercials, etc.) We have passed the so-called tipping point of online video sharing and viewing. There is also the perceived security issue concerning videos being stored on the cloud for some CIO’s, etc. you can easily develop a video sharing system embedded into the platform.

Extending collaboration toward cooperation

Harold Jarche

Mostly for internal collaboration, according to an Ipsos study commissioned by Microsoft to survey 9,908 global information workers about how they use social tools to get work done, available at The Worldwide Watercooler. Notice how these stated uses generally align with the collaborative & cooperative competencies I identified in my post on cooperation in the networked workplace. Most people want to be collaborative as well as cooperative in order to do better work.

The New CEO Acronym: Collaborative, Engaging & Open

Dan Pontefract

Others may be fine economically and growth-wise, but their transformation is caused by internal employees self-organizing for the purpose of becoming more collaborative, more engaged and certainly more open. Either way, it’s my opinion that the CEO of any organization (for profit or not-for-profit) truly needs to become a leader that isn’t just a Chief Executive Officer, rather, he/she needs to be much more collaborative , engaging and open. Organizations are changing.

Open, Collaborative Trust Frameworks

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Open, collaborative approaches have been successfully applied to the development of some of the most consequential, disruptive initiatives of the past few decades, like the World Wide Web and Linux. In 2010, the World Economic Forum , - one of ID³'s collaborating institutions , - launched a project on Rethinking Personal Data. Our tweets, texts, emails, phone calls, photos and videos as well as the coordinates of our real-world locations.

Making collaborative work work

Harold Jarche

Tweet Everyone talks about collaboration in the workplace today but what does it really mean? It could be a regular blog; sharing day-to-day happenings in activity streams; taking pictures and videos; or just having regular discussions. Blogs and Wikis are inherently more transparent than email, where 90% of collaboration occurs. How do you get from here to there? Every snake oil salesman is selling social something: enterprise social; social learning; social CRM; etc.

Note that coordination here is not really needed, in contrast to other systemss of mass collaboration. 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. This leads to the exploration of the potential for modeling collaborative knwoledge through its networks structure. They create content collaboratively.

Prediction: Video-conferencing will help drive increased business travel

Trends in the Living Networks

Clearly a particularly pointed issue in the world of business travel today is the rise of video-conferencing, which many companies in recent years have latched onto as a substitute for travel, largely for cost-saving. In the first edition of Developing Knowledge-Based Client Relationships , which came out in 2000, I wrote in the chapter on managing communication portfolios that the ever-improving quality of video-conferencing would be accompanied by increasing business travel.

Collaboration and community skills are the new workplace skills

Jane Hart

OK, these skills are not actually “new” – they’ve always been present – but perhaps they have not always been as visible as they should have been, as Oscar Berg explains in The collaboration pyramid (or iceberg). But as for the new social and collaboration skills that workers require, well you simply can’t train people to be social!

Collaboration Tools

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).

At Adaptive Path we often talk about collaboration. We turn down work with prospects that don’t want to collaborate with us and cherish opportunities to work closely with clients that do. The Changemakers’ team and project was the quintessential collaboration between client and consultancy, resulting in a powerful redesign meeting the needs of both the client and user.

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. 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. This may seem radical, and change can be unsettling, but this is a key to becoming a Collaborative organization. Second post in a series.

Transmedia Storytelling and Collaborative Innovation

It reminds me of collaborative innovation , one of the most important concepts that many companies in the IT industry have embraced over the past decade. .
