A New Style of Work

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Tom Foremski , a journalist blogger and friend who reports on the business and culture of innovation in Silicon Valley Watcher , wrote an interesting comment in my blog: “In some ways, I see your post-retirement life as being somewhat futuristic, in that it will be the way many people will be working in the future. My work processes are essentially web-based processes. Let me review some of the key ways that the web-based cloud office enables my new style of work.

Job Creation and Entrepreneurship

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Companies are able to do their present work with fewer people, as a result of advances in IT-based productivity. How about the dramatic scientific and technological advances that we see all around us, including information-based intelligence , smart cities solutions , nanotechnologies, bioinformatics and new clean energy initiatives. Could they lead over time to a golden age of innovation and all kinds of jobs in new industries that we can barely being to anticipate today?

Given the major changes we are going through, including a transition to a new kind of information society and knowledge-based economy , we may well be in truly unchartered territory. And none of us can predict when a new golden age of innovation will finally arrive leading to many new jobs and industries. Over the past few decades, the most prominent centers of entrepreneurship have been high-tech innovation hubs such as those in Silicon Valley and the Boston-Cambridge area.

Knowledge sharing, one at a time

Harold Jarche

“Every amateur epistemologist knows that knowledge cannot be managed. Education has always assumed that knowledge can be transferred and that we can carefully control the process through education. While knowledge cannot be managed, we can work at managing our own knowledge.

Knowledge Mobilization and Knowledge Translation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

One of the things I wanted to see Tom Carey explore in his talk today is the concept, suggested in this title, of knowledge mobilization. From iisd , "Knowledge mobilization addresses how external knowledge (outside of the organization) is sought out and combined with internal knowledge to create new knowledge that meets the needs of target users/clients." We see this at work with knowledge translation. What do I mean by knowledge mobilization?

Of course, since I'm truly believe that the form of what we will be building in the future is changing and things like RLOs and Courseware are going to become much less important, then my current knowledge base seems diminished. So, there has been some innovation.

The Evolving Social Organization

Harold Jarche

Innovation abounds in the early stages and knowledge capitalization is aided by a common vision of the business. Current management wisdom – based on Robin Dunbar’s research ; the size of military units through history; and the work of management experts such as Tom Peters – considers the ideal size of an organization to be around 150 people. However, knowledge, and the acquisition of new knowledge, are still key factors for innovation and effectiveness.
