What will change in 2010?
Jay Cross's Informal Learning
DECEMBER 19, 2009
Now, innovation often goes the other way. Who needs to be confined by the likes of SharePoint when you can easily see how everything is related? Tags: innovation I nnovations in computing used to trickle down from business and government to consumers.
Go straight to the finish line
JANUARY 29, 2010
Incrementalism is the worst enemy of innovation. It is thus imperative to reach out to other parts of the company, sit down with their management and technical leaders and see how the new innovation you are leading can help their existing business.
Reflecting on my 2011

Where innovation comes in. Crowd-inspired innovation. Topics include Sharepoint, Jive, learning+working, rough drafts of articles, resource lists, and notes for various articles.
LearnTrends Conference is no more
DECEMBER 31, 2011
LearnTrends, the Corporate Learning and Innovation Conference, is going off the air. In 2007, 2008, and 2009, we hosted free online conferences to push the envelope in learning innovation.
I Know It When I See It
JANUARY 27, 2009
Whether from the large familiar vendors, or the smaller innovative ones, the goal is to demonstrate value to the business, otherwise they won't spend the money. Simon Carswell February 9, 2009 at 3:56 am I think one of the problems with of Sharepoint is that it attempts both to be a structured, workflow type system at the same time as a Web 2.0 For example, one the first comments by Mr. Carswell is that Sharepoint is excluded because it imposes structure.
Business of Learning
JUNE 15, 2009
Don't I just use SharePoint? As one example of the challenge, Upside Learning ( disclosure ) who often works for training companies to help them build innovative eLearning solutions has what they call an Innovation and New Projects Team. This is a very strange time.
Social Networking: The Benefits Outweigh the Constraints
AUGUST 24, 2012
s SharePoint has been spectacularly successful in delivering enterprise control but loose, flexible apps and freedom for individual employees to choose where to go, if they have permission. Peter Drucker, in frustration at the over-complex definitions of innovation in companies came up with his own simple and straight forward rendering. Let us return to Peter Drucker and his definition of innovation: change which creates a new dimension of performance.
Once more, across that chasm
MAY 27, 2010
Geoffrey Moore’s analogy of “ crossing the chasm ” is that any new technology is quickly adopted by innovators and early adopters, but there is a chasm to cross in order to get the more pragmatic majority to adopt the new technology. I spend much of my time watching the innovators, and.

Familiarity breeds usefulness
NOVEMBER 6, 2009
Of course technology embodies human knowledge, but that embodiment by its nature stabilises knowledge at a point in time, it limits innovation shifting the balance from exploration to exploitation.
Collaboration is work
NOVEMBER 2, 2010
The pragmatic reality is that innovation happens at the intersection of learning and cultivating diverse connections. Networks literally become learning disabled if the connections become too homophilous and without learning, no innovation is possible. We place new labels on the issue (it’s not KM anymore, now its collaboration); new products emerge (SharePoint: “it does everything ), and all too often forget the lessons of the past.
Your social wishlist

Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and Fast Company had already told him that brainpower has become the engine of innovation. increase the level of innovation. How will you take advantage of your in-house social network? Use networks to create services and share collective intelligence.
Is Enterprise 2.0 a crock?
NOVEMBER 5, 2009
Big benefits come from useful apps (like Excel Tips and Tricks), timeliness (realtime competitive information), and innovation (through crowd sourcing). People were gathering data sheets on SharePoint, Notes, and lots of undifferentiated collaboration tools.
A Window Into The Org
JULY 2, 2009
Can it be argued that as we continue to prove Moore’s Law correct, and we introduce more innovative ways in which to collaborate, that we (ironically) are going backwards? Think about Microsoft Sharepoint (particularly the 2010 release), Jive , Drupal , Blogtronix , Telligent , amongst many others as that window. Through the introduction of Web 2.0
AUGUST 3, 2009
During a recent presentation and workshop to eLearning leaders from across a large organization, it dawned on me that we were making Getting Started with eLearning 2.0 a lot harder than it really needed to be. This organization was not unlike many other large organizations.
2009 Predictions How Did I Do?
DECEMBER 9, 2009
Corollary: if you have SharePoint installed, you will be using SharePoint a lot more this year. While there are some definite challenges facing New Learning Solutions , I believe that we are seeing some real innovation.

Learning and KM: Separated at birth?
NOVEMBER 15, 2009
Speakers paint a compelling vision of the future knowledge innovation highway. Organizations that want to succeed in the global knowledge economy must transform into an enterprise of the future, one that continually learns and innovates.
Learned about Learning in 2009
DECEMBER 14, 2009
During the year, I’ve had fantastic conversations through LearnTrends around SharePoint , Examples and Tour of Different Kinds of eLearning , Social Learning , and the Business of Learning. This was hosted by the learning organization, but it looked more like a research, innovation project than a learning event. It’s always fun at the end of the year to go back and take a look at what you’ve been working on, what you’ve learned during the year.
