Human-Machine Work Teams

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Will there be enough work in the future? What’s the likely impact of our continuing technology advances on jobs? How will they impact productivity? These are all-important questions to reflect on as our increasingly smart technologies are now being applied to activities that not long ago were viewed as the exclusive domain of humans.

Blog Post: We live in a hyperconnected, socio-technical world

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen As I write my blook on Conversational Leadership , I find myself capturing fragments of ideas that I know will get refined and fit in somewhere in due course. Here is one such fragment: We are not separate from the world. We are integrally connected. We are each a node of one huge global network. It is as if we are all attached by a large number of elastic bands to a multitude of other nodes: people, things, places, and history.

the new networked norm

Harold Jarche

Our societies have grown from a collection of tribes, added institutions, and later developed markets. These aligned with revolutions in communications: from oral, to written, to print. The network era began with the advent of electric communications, though it is by no means completely established.

Providing individuals with the opportunity to take charge of their professional self-development in the workplace is not just one way to build a continuous learning mindset, but it also gives employees choice, flexibility and ownership of their learning.

Cognitive and Learning Sciences

Clark Quinn

You’ll see a lot of vendors/sessions/webinars touting neuroscience or brain-based. And you really shouldn’t believe it. Yes, our brains are composed of neurons, and we do care about what we know about brains. BUT, these aren’t the right terms!

2 0 years ago today I blew up my organization's 10,000 square foot national headquarters, with library, conference and seminar room, beautiful desks, an office for my secretary (that's what we called assistants back then), and my vision of an indoor fountain to welcome visitors from all over the world. People from Hong Kong, Australia, and across North American actually did travel to Manhattan, Kansas, to visit us.

Intimacy

Euen Semple

There is something profoundly intimate about the conversations that we have online. Our handheld devices are becoming extensions of our physical bodies and our interactions feel as if they are directly wired into our brains. These apparently trivial little chunks of text that we exchange rattle around inside our skulls like overexcited neurones. They affect our moods. They cause delight or distress. Collectively they bring to life Teilhard de Chardin's noosphere as never before.

How To 100

Context is key

Clark Quinn

Workflow learning is one of the new buzzphrases. The notion is that you deliver learning to the point of need, instead of taking people away from the workflow. And I’m a fan. But it’s not as easy as it sounds! Context is a critical issue in making this work, and that’s non-trivial.

Are Private Trains the Answer to Highway Congestion?

Nine Shift

The question was asked in a Today segment earlier this month with NBC's Kerry Sanders reporting. The short answer is No. Yes, trains are the answer to highway congestion, in fact they are the answer to highways, and are replacing cars for this century. We predicted this in 2005 on BBC worldwide radio. Private trains will operate on the tracks, but the tracks will be owned by the people, the government, the public sector.

A self-driven car is a concept that requires little explanation, something we can all quickly grasp. It wasn’t that long ago that the notion on an AV driving us around while we read or sleep would have felt like the stuff of science fiction.

Blog Post: Knowledge Management Matters: Creativity and Innovation

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen I mentioned a month or two back a new book Knowledge Management Matters: By Practitioners for Practitioners written by a number of well known KM practitioners and edited by John and JoAnn Girard. The book is free and you can download it from here. John Girard tells me that about 1000 people have downloaded a copy of the book already and that they are in the process of developing a series of companion videos, the first of which is now available on YouTube.

Nuances Matter

Clark Quinn

I’ve argued before that the differences between well-designed and well-produced learning, and just well-produced learning, are subtle. And, in general, nuances matter. So, in my recent book, the section on misconceptions spent a lot of time unpacking some terms.

Not fighting what is

Euen Semple

Not fighting what is I love mountains and I love climbing them. In the past, having to cancel our walk up Foel Fras in Snowdonia yesterday due to the thundery weather, would have left me in a very bad mood. I would have felt sorry for myself and resentful that the weather wasn't what I wanted. I would have spent the day with a metaphorical, self induced, cloud over my head.
