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.

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. Leadership in networks is helping the network make better decisions, and this requires a focus on the best organizational design to meet the changing situations. 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. Plus ça change, plus c’est pareil.

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.

David Weinberger

Look at user needs to design services. 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.” His topic: “The Management of Knowledge Work and Innovation.”

mastery and models

Harold Jarche

Personal Knowledge Mastery. These disciplines have influenced my professional work which is based on individuals taking control of their learning and professional development and actively engaging in social networks and communities of practice. Personal knowledge mastery ( PKM ) is a framework I have developed over the past 12 years. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts as we build on the knowledge of others. The organization can help this knowledge to flow.

The Tale of Two Cultures

Jay Cross

I am going to use the concept to describe two different sorts of knowledge and the different way we learn them. #1 1 is intuitive knowledge and #2 is logical knowledge. Intuitive knowledge . Intuitive knowledge is what Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman describes in Thinking Fast and Slow as System 1. Intuitive knowledge works with patterns; it knows no words. Intuitive knowledge is also known as muscle memory. Rational knowledge.

Future of the training department

Clark Quinn

Really, we’re unmasking the chaos that we’ve been able to cover with observed patterns, and explain away the excepti0ns. Well, now the patterns are changing fast enough that we can’t expect to be able to plan, prepare and execute to succeed. Instead, we need to make sure everyone understands what the overall goal is, and have them work together to achieve it. Who is responsible for ensuring this works?

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.

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 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.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

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.
