Reflections on the Whistler process

Dave Snowden

The theme of design was always there from the intiail conception, but the increasing comodisation of design into the linera process of much design thinking creating a context for the programme. We need to look at a non-linear process, one which engages a wider group of people.

Blockchain and Business Process Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

One of the most important such lenses is the impact of IT on business processes, that is, on how work is actually done across the various functions of an organization. . Business process automation. Process reengineering and management.

An Agile, Incremental Approach to Business Process Automation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

I was reminded of IBM’s e-business strategy when recently reading about Robotic Process Automation (RPA), a technology for automating business processes based on emulating the manual actions of a human at a keyboard. Most jobs involve a number of different tasks or processes.

Blockchain and Business Process Transformation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

One of the most important such lenses is the impact of IT on business processes, that is, on how work is actually done across the various functions of an organization. . Examining the impact of IT over the past several decades through a process point of view, one can identify three distinct phases: first came process automation in the early years of IT, followed around the 1990s by enterprise-wide process reengineering and management. Business process automation.

Personal processing

Clark Quinn

I was thinking about a talk on mobile I’m going to be giving, and realized that mobile is really about personal processing. So the question then became “what doesn’t make sense on a mobile” And my thought was that industrial strength processing doesn’t make sense on a mobile. So, for instance, while word processing isn’t really CPU intensive, for some reason mobile word processors don’t seamlessly integrate outlining.

The Process

Sensory Processing and School Underachievement

Eide Neurolearning

Disabilities that occur often without obvious physical signs, like sensory processing disorders or dyslexia, are often harder to 'prove', harder to qualify for accommodations, and often faulted as being due to laziness, poor effort or motivation, or retardation.

Job-Killing Processes

Martijn Linssen

I’ve been wrestling with a thought lately – if organizations are complex systems, and complex systems are continuously self-organizing, then why do we believe formal processes make these complex systems more efficient?

A Competent Competency Process

Clark Quinn

In the process of looking at ways to improve the design of courses, the starting point is good objectives. We then need good processes, so I’ve talked to a couple of educational institutions doing competencies, to see what could be learned. And it’s clear that while there’s no turnkey approach, what’s emerging is a process with some specific elements.

Social Cognitive Processing

Clark Quinn

In an earlier post , I tried to convey the advantages of social activities in formal learning from the cognitive processing perspective, but my diagram apparently didn’t work for everyone. And you do some processing to generate that product.

IT Doesn’t Matter. Business processes do

Jay Cross

Consultants Howard Smith and Peter Fingar shot back a month later with a paperback retort entitled IT Doesn’t Matter – Business Processes Do. In 120 pages, Smith and Fingar skewer Carr, show why IT will matter more than ever, and explain how business process management creates riches.

Types of meaningful processing

Clark Quinn

What I’m looking for is ways to get learners to do processing in ways that will assist their ability to do. It has learners monitor the process, and then they can turn that on themselves to become self-monitoring. This processing of the rules in context exposes the underlying issues in important ways. Rather than present them with the models, I’m again looking for more meaningful processing.

Visual Processing & "Fixing My Gaze"

Eide Neurolearning

Like many with visual processing disorders, Dr. Barry heard the old saw that she was past the critical period for retraining her vision, and that nothing could be done to recover it, but frustrated by increasing vision problems in her 40's, she went to see a behavioral optometrist.

The Quinnovation eLearning Process Survey

Clark Quinn

My interest is in finding out about the processes used in designing and delivering elearning. In the interests of understanding where the market is, I’m looking to benchmark where organizations are. Sure, there are other data points, but I have my own questions I would like to get answered. So I’ve created a quick survey of seven questions (thanks, SurveyMonkey) I’d love for you to fill out.

Survey 107

Meaningful processing

Clark Quinn

I’ve talked previously about social processing, so I’m going to focus specifically on individual processing. So, for instance, coloring a poster with the associated words doesn’t do the necessary processing, you need to activate the necessary concepts with connections to relevant things. You need to semantically process the terms again and again. So can we start focusing on learning activities that generate meaningful processing?

ABIDE - overview of process

Dave Snowden

Picking up on yesterdays post on ABIDE. As I suspected forcing myself to teach the idea produced some innovation and resolution of problems. Thinking back nearly everything original I have developed (including the various Cynefin representations) have been achieved on my feet in front of an audience. Some people are visual thinkers, some written, I think I reflect the oral tradition I come from, the interaction with an audience opens up new channels of thinking.

Explicating process

Clark Quinn

I think supporting performance is important, and that we don’t do enough with models in formal learning. To me, another interesting opportunity that’s being missed is the intersection of the two. Gloria Gery’s original vision of electronic performance support systems was that not only would they help you perform but they’d also develop your understanding so you’d need them less and less. I’ve never seen that in practice, sad to say.

Sensory Processing Disorders 2009 - Research Closing the Gap

Eide Neurolearning

Announcement: ** Sign Up is now Open** Eides/ Biel Sensory Processing Online Webinar Nov 12th & 13th 2009 Drs. Recent advances in sensory processing research are providing insights into why child and adults suffer troubling sensory sensitivities and behaviors.

Design the process, not the outcome

Dave Snowden

We don't design the outcome, we design the processes of interaction and monitor for emergence. Coevolution in biology occurs when two parties exert selective evolutionary pressures on each other as a result of which they are changed.

Negating the learner in the learning process

George Siemens

Yesterday, a Coursera course was closed after the first week of delivery. 40,000 students were left somewhat confused. I posted a few thoughts on this on our xeducation site. The interesting stuff is in the comments and that’s what I’d like to emphasize here.

Tools & Process v Networked Human Judgement

Dave Snowden

What are the implications of having an overwhelming array of tools and processes to help manage an overwhelming volume of tasks / activities? Unfortunately an all too common excessive obsession with efficiency, a desire to engineer all processes, and a wish to eliminate all uncertainty and complexity is not only burning out human resources but it's introducing risks into operating environments.

It’s the process, silly!

Clark Quinn

And part of it is in the knowledge and skills of the designers, but it’s also in the process. ADDIE isn’t inherently linear, certainly as it has evolved, but in many ways it makes it easy to make it a one-pass process. Putting in place processes that only use formal learning when it makes sense, and then doing it right when it does make sense, is key to putting L&D on a path to relevancy.

Sensory Processing, Postural Sway, Anxiety - Better with Occupational Therapy

Eide Neurolearning

** Last Day to Register for our 2-Day Sensory Processing Webinar with Drs. Interesting study that shows that the lines between sensory processing, emotional processing, and behavior are continuing to blur.

Advice as process

David Weinberger

And that larger sense of advice seems to me not to be a self-contained activity, but a process and a social interaction. Marginal Revolution has a terrific post about giving advice. I find myself conflicted about the topic. Although I am an occasional consultant and adviser, I don’t think of myself as giving advice.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

Can innovation be promoted through better processes? I have not been able to find any regular correllation between well adopted innovation processes and actual innovation outcomes, and I’ve been looking pretty hard. I want every knowledge worker to discover his or her own processes.

Finding Process Ideas From Our Networks

Nancy White

This linked set of tweets tells the story about why we don’t have to k now all the different processes we can use in groups, in our work. This is also a nice Twitter Story which I can point to when we are talking about Networks at CSIR in Pretoria next week!).

Processing Pages With Links

Tony Karrer

This relates to the strategies that I defined for how to process information in the posts Better Memory and Information Radar. If I have more time, right then, I will continue to skim-dive-skim the pages that I've opened and process them. Great post by Ken Allan asking - What do you do with a Fan of Links? This is all about what to do when you encounter a page that links to many other possibly interesting pages.

Creating your PKM processes

Harold Jarche

In Sense-making with PKM I described some personal knowledge management processes using various web tools. The overall process consists of four internal actions (Sort, Categorize, Retrieve, Make Explicit) and three externally focused ones (Connect, Contribute, Exchange).

Other PKM processes

Harold Jarche

It seems that Stephen Downes isn’t enamoured with my PKM process : My first thought was, do I do it this way? Take what you need, as there are no “best practices&# for complex and personal learning processes.

LMS Selection Process

Tony Karrer

So, first, what am I talking about: How to Conduct a Successful Learning Management Systems (LMS) Selection Process LMS Selection Background: I'm coming from a background of personally working and coaching on a bunch of LMS selection, installation and configuration projects and being heavily involved in the design and development of several custom LMS implementations. Most people only go through a few selection processes in their career. Getting agreement on strategy and process.

Thinking Context in the Design Process

Clark Quinn

I was talking to the ADL Mobile folks about mobile design processes, and as usual I was going on about how mobile is not the sweet spot for courses (augmenting yes, full delivery no).

News, process, webs and networks

David Weinberger

This one is on the news as a process — never done, never entirely right. Terry’s process view of the news is helpful because it reminds us that a news story is messily spread over time, with many hands touching, and thus contradicts the ol’ writing-boom-published timeline of yore. Nah, the news is always in process. The river of news as it flows past us is part of a continuing process, which has shape and some persistence because it is a network.

Designing Social Processing

Clark Quinn

In reflecting on the presentation I gave earlier this week, I realize that I didn’t make it clear that just making it social will make activities lead to better processing. First, the assignment itself needs to be designed to involve valuable processing activities. I’m glad they did, as I was able to develop a set of guidelines for them that subsequently smoothed the process.

Increased brain sensitivity and visual attention in people with sensory processing sensitivities

Eide Neurolearning

Our understanding of sensory processing sensitivities and disorders has taken a leap forward in the past few years though the field is still messy because people come to the topic from so many different disciplines and viewpoints.

Mind the SME (and process)

Clark Quinn

Along the way, it provides useful coverage of topics like shared representations, process, and the value of project management. At the recent Distance Teaching & Learning Conference I keynoted at, I met up with Jon Aleckson who, among other things, provided me a copy of his new book MindMeld. As the subtitle tells you, the book is about “micro collaboration between elearning designers and instructor experts&#.

Design, processes, and ADDIE

Clark Quinn

In reading another post pointed to by Cammy Bean, I see a cogent discussion of how processes can be stifling or supportive. The point being, that the processes we learn are scaffolds for performance. Used inappropriately, we pay lip service to the stages, doing the same cookie-cutter process we butcher when we do bad ID. I come to check briefly on what’s happening, late on an evening, and find a flurry of discussion that prompts reflection.
