Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Retailers and Customers

John Hagel

Almost a decade ago, I detected an intriguing pattern regarding the unbundling and rebundling of firms (purchase unfortunately required). Of course, the pace and trajectory of unbundling (and related rebundling) differs across industries and geographies – the patterns are complex and fractal. When I first wrote about the broader unbundling pattern in the late 1990s – there was one big anomaly that many people kept pointing out to me – the Gap.

You might want to do a search on ‘Mending Walls’ both on this blog and the wider internet if you want more of the background. It is important to realise that boundaries are often designed to be crossed. As I dropped out of the cloud to the east of Winder the evening sun provided warmth that was spiritual as well as physical and the pattern of light on the pasture at the valley floor gave hope. That became a boundary that had to go, hence the shift to making them open.

Each of these networks has its own unique style, functionality and patterns of usage.

Because LinkedIn is designed for professional networking, there’s a greater emphasis on building a reputation and connecting to employment and business opportunities.

Well, a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of delivering the opening keynote presentation at the Community 2.0 As a result, much of this investment was wasted, consistent with the broader pattern of the dot com bubble.

Sense-making with PKM

Harold Jarche

We constantly go through a process of looking at bits of information and trying to make sense of them by adding to our existing knowledge or testing out new patterns in our sense-making efforts. A stock exchange is designed to help capital flow and we need to use knowledge exchanges to allow ideas to flow. For centuries, knowledge exchanges were limited to elites but we now have access to world’s largest and most open exchange ever created. OS = open source.

Its also worth noting that the evidence for the success of scenario planning is largely anecdotal, and the anecdotes are from restricted sources in the main Shell. The diversity of participants in the process is also an issue and there are inherent dangers of pattern entrainment in workshop processes. Managing future uncertainties was fundamental to its design. A small number of people in a workshop are too easily subject to pattern entrainment and cognitive bias.

Beyond Assessment ? Recognizing Achievement in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I did a talk just downstairs on open content. This addresses the specific question of assessment in open learning and in informal learning. Is open online learning or the MOOC, the massive open online course, or informal learning in general doing the sort of thing that we need? Nonetheless, MOOCs and open online learning generally are shifting the definition of education away from its historical roots to a skills based, instrumentally defined enterprise ??

Another option, if you want to share within your organisation, would be to use an open source social bookmarking system and bring it inside your company’s firewall, but that would take some cooperation from the IT department.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. You can begin to see a pattern developing here. This enabled a more fine-grained presentation oflearning content than traditional sources such as textbooks and universitycourses.

What I mean is: knowledge itself, to know something, is to be organized in a certain way, to have a certain pattern of connectivity in the mind, a certain neural connection in the mind. To learn on that theory is therefore to acquire that pattern of organization. To learn is therefore not to have things pushed in your head but to grow and to develop in a certain way and specifically to grow and develop in such a way that you are able to recognize patterns in the environment.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road.

Test your proposal with your colleagues (I don't recommend putting them online ahead of the selection process because it may impede the process - I personally prefer openness but many conference organizers do not, and may react badly).

And, as he notes, ““There is one and only one social responsibility of business – to use it[s]resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition.” At the same time, it is argued that “Codes are not designed for ‘bad’ people, but for the persons who want to act ethically” (Ibid: 7). Another source of error is misinterpretation.
