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”.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions. So, of course, I went to eLearning Learning and I looked at Wiki , Collaborative Learning with Wikis , Wikis and eLearning 2.0 , Wikis Corporate eLearning , Social Learning with Wikis , Wiki Security and a few others. Here’s some of what I found: Why a Wiki?

Being clear on collaboration

Clark Quinn

Twice recently, I’ve been confronted with systems that claim to be collaboration platforms. And I think distributed collaboration is one of the most powerful options we have for accelerating our innovation. Now, true collaboration is powerful. By collaboration in this sense I mean working together to create a shared representation. It’s not new, it’s been the basis of wikis (e.g.

Making collaborative work work

Harold Jarche

Tweet Everyone talks about collaboration in the workplace today but what does it really mean? 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. For me boils down to three principles. Narration of Work: This means actually talking about what you are doing.

Workforce collaboration

Harold Jarche

However, this McKinsey Report on Using technology to improve workforce collaboration actually held my attention. The authors describe how companies can see large savings by using web technologies for collaboration (not a new concept). P&G increased its use of collaborative web technologies and in addition mandated that 50% of new product development come from outside the company.

Wikis at Work

Tony Karrer

Found via Big Dog Little Dog - It's information collaboration - discusses the use of Wikis within organizations. Some of the points it makes: Gartner predicts that by 2009 half of companies worldwide will be using wikis Examples of use Acronyms and industry terminology, best sales practices, case studies, client information, meeting minutes.

Identifying a collaboration platform

Harold Jarche

Step Two, or a concurrent step, would be to look at how to enhance collaboration. First of all, collaborative work tools must be simple to be effective. A collaboration platform that is over-engineered would be counterproductive. The key aspect of a collaboration platform is that should make work more transparent and rewards sharing. Connect the LMS to a collaborative work platform. Migrate learning to a collaboration platform and minimize use of the LMS.

Mass Collaboration Workshop, Day Two

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.

Workshop on Mass Collaboration - Day One

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Introduction to the Workshop - Ulrike Cress Why a workshop in mass collaboration? Nature article on massively collaborative mathematics (see the wiki PolyMath). Can we design mass collaboration? A Brief History of Mass Collaboration Allan Collins, Northwestern University Homo sapiens traded with others many miles away, while Neandrathals did not. As you get more and more collaboration, you get a speed-up of innovation. How about collaboration?

Wizardly Collaboration and HyperCard

Clark Quinn

Normally, when we talk about performance support and collaboration, we think of creating job aids. In content, we are using wikis as tools that are open for collaborative updating. The idea that occurred to me was to have collaborative wizards; wizards written in a simple but reasonably powerful language that are open for editing. Imagine having a collaborative HyperCard!

Barriers to Collaboration

Harold Jarche

In Why Businesses Don’t Collaborate , Stewart Mader and Scott Abel ask 523 workers about their information sharing habits. In reading through the responses and sample comments, it becomes obvious that there are two technologies that limit workplace collaboration - e-mail & meetings. Most of us who work with social media already know that e-mail can be replaced by more appropriate tools such as wikis, instant messaging, blogs or micro-blogs for a number of tasks.

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. I also heavily use Wikis, especially when the desired result is a set of web pages.

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. Think about how perhaps you could achieve that very same goal through the use of a blog post, or a microblog entry, or a wiki page, or just an activity.

eLearning Tools - Wikis, Blogs and More

Tony Karrer

Found via Donald Clark - Business Week article - The Wiki Workplace that discusses use of Wikis and Blogs and particularly their use. Many thousands of Geeks are using a growing suite of collaboration technologies to brainstorm new products and services, manage projects, swap service tips, and socialize with their peers. Geek Squad is a case in point.

How Wikipedia Works and Wikis in the Enterprise - HBS

Tony Karrer

At the bottom of the article, the author interviews Andrew about the use of Wikis in the enterprise. But an encyclopedia is only one of the things you can build with wiki technology. In my experience, Wikis often start (and sometimes end) as an easier-to-use replacement for simple web publishing (an intranet that's easy-to-edit). The new way is to use a Wiki and just click the edit button. The article later discusses: Silverthorne: Have you used wikis yourself?

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.

Some cultures foster collaboration while others stop it dead in its tracks.

The Future of Collaboration Lies in Human Resources AND Management’s Hands

Luis Suarez

“ Here we are, 2014 and still wondering what the future of collaboration is — as if we didn’t know already. Despite all efforts to trump it or get rid of it altogether in favour of other noble concepts like cooperation , the hard truth is that collaboration has always been here. It’s because all along, knowledge workers have been encouraged to compete with one another versus helping, caring or collaborating with one another.
