Building a Solid Library of Use Cases

Luis Suarez

I have been advocating for social software tools (as an opportunity to explore their huge potential in terms of how they help us become more effective at what we do by becoming more open, collaborative and innovative) from as early as 2000, when I was first exposed to different instances of blogs and wikis, whether inside or outside of the firewall, along with what today would be known as social profiles.

The revolution brewing in the world of work: Q&A with Rod Collins

Steve Denning

Is it also about management? Rod : The book is actually about both leadership and management. I used leadership rather than management in the title because there seems to be more interest these days in leadership over management. Perhaps this is a result of the popular notions that leadership is "in" and "management is "out" and that leaders "lead people" while managers merely "manage things."

Scaling knowledge

Harold Jarche

People who participate in structures like open source software projects can join and connect to others at will. Designers of these open organizational structures understand that in complex un-order, loose hierarchies and strong networks are best. Organizations that deal with complex knowledge and require creativity from workers need looser hierarchies to maintain flexibility in dealing with changing situations.

Once more, across that chasm

Harold Jarche

I also use a broader definition of technology; being the application of organized and scientific knowledge to solve practical problems. Open Source. … and that these probably wouldn’t get across, yet: Wikis (partially because of the name). Wikis were becoming more popular, especially those that replicated word processesors, like Writely , which was later purchased to become Google Docs, used ubiquitously today.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

” This is why I think personal knowledge management is so important. I want every knowledge worker to discover his or her own processes. I recently wrote about PKM and innovation and concluded that in order to address complex problems, businesses have to rely more on individual tacit knowledge, but this type of knowledge is never easy to convey to others. I discussed knowledge artisans in my recent white paper , and what follows is an excerpt.

Social Media Goals

Clark Quinn

Drupal is an open source CMS that’s been used for social media, and Elgg similarly started as an open source portfolio tool but has expanded. Vignette’s story about building on their core content management system supporting knowledge management makes sense from the point of view of mining value out of the discussions. A more direct measure, the knowledge grown, seems to be a really exciting opportunity.

5th Anniversary

Harold Jarche

Current areas of interest include social networking applications, like blogs, wikis and the use of RSS feeds, which is one reason why I have this blog; to practise what I preach. I’m also interested in the use of open source software platforms for learning. My personal knowledge base is now over 1,400 blog posts with +3,000 comments.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. This is something that gets discussed as emergent: see Emergent Knowledge Management , Direction of eLearning - Emergence or Big System , and Future Platforms for eLearning.

Last Year's Predictions For 2008, Reviewed

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Less-democratic processes will lead to a clearer distinction between expert-generated knowledge and the overwhelming quantity of information available everyplace, making it easier to discern information quality.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Sure, many of these efforts are naïve and overly-simplistic, but these people are smart, fast learners, so their lack of knowledge and understanding of education doesn't last long.
