the workflow of learning

Harold Jarche

One of the things I’m trying to figure out is the most efficient workflow for moving from reading >> notes >> sensemaking >> drafts >> publishing articles. In my own case, I collect (seek) information through my social networks and then collate them in my social bookmarks or my blog posts, especially my Friday’s Finds. I was asked today about my sensemaking routine.

Why your Enterprise Social Network is your most valuable social learning platform

Jane Hart

In the workplace, social learning comes through social collaboration. Social learning is a natural everyday phenomenon; simply put, we learn from our colleagues as we work with them. For this reason the new enterprise social platforms (like Enterprise Social Networks (ESNs) that underpin social collaboration are your most valuable social learning platforms. Social learning

Google+ may miss the big opportunity: spanning internal and external social networks

As many others have expressed, it is very frustrating to be delayed several months into the hottest new social space because we are more dedicated Google users than others. Individuals build social networks around their Profiles, and companies, brands, media etc. build Pages (in Facebook) in which there are slightly different parameters on how you communicate with their network. Some of your colleagues will also be in your social network.

Social as a Weapon of Class Destruction

Dan Pontefract

The aforementioned line is recognized as the first known use of the term ‘weapons of mass destruction’ But today, in 2013, I want to discuss a new weapon — a weapon of class destruction — and that weapon is social. Let’s first define what I mean by ‘class’ I’d like the term class in my social as a weapon of class destruction thesis to denote two things for purposes of this piece: societal & organizational status.

Social Media is not Social Learning

Dan Pontefract

Social media is not social learning. Brian Solis took a crack at defining social media as follows: <the> democratization of information, transforming people from content readers into publishers. Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein define social media as: <a> group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, So why is social media not social learning?

Five Myths of Social Learning

Home > Social Learning > Five Myths of Social Learning Five Myths of Social Learning December 3rd, 2009 Goto comments Leave a comment There is no question that the rise of social networks is creating a profound shift in the way training departments are delivering knowledge to their employees, partners, and customers. Social learning is disruptive and training organizations need to evolve or die, there is no disputing this. E-Social CM Media?

learning in the flow of work

Harold Jarche

Networked humans in a connected society: Our increasing inter-connectedness illuminates the need for cooperation. Implicit knowledge is often developed through conversations and social relationships. Social learning networks — with trusted relationships — enable better and faster knowledge feedback loops. Hierarchies constrain social interactions — so command & control management models need to change. Management’s primary job is to support social learning.

Visualize the workflow of a physical job: produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce, produce. Now visualize the workflow of a creative knowledge worker: nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, flash of brilliance, nothing, nothing, nothing.” —Jay Most of these five triggers can be enhanced through informal and social learning, and the individual practice of personal knowledge mastery. Online social networks and communities of practice cooperate.

Workplace Learning: Adding, Embedding & Extracting

Charles Jennings

Adding Learning to Work When faced with the opportunities to help with workplace learning, many HR, talent development, and learning professionals react by simply adding learning to the workflow. Typically, adding learning involves integrating structured away-from-work learning (courses, classes, and eLearning modules) with learning activities within the workflow. There is excellent work being carried out that supports embedding learning within workflows. ‘

Implementing working smarter: top-down or bottom-up?

Jay Cross

At yesterday’s meeting of the CLO Executive Network, people asked whether it’s better to start at the top or the organization or to grow things from the bottom. We’ve seen grass-roots efforts go viral and spread from humble beginnings to enterprise-wide collaborative network. We’ve also seen mandates from senior executives kick off powerful in-house social networks.

agile sensemaking

Harold Jarche

Increasing awareness of new ideas, methods, and processes often comes through serendipitous encounters outside the workflow. Radical innovation only comes from diverse networks with large structural holes, according to Steve Borgatti. This is why our social networks cannot also be our work teams, or they become echo chambers. Communities of practice then become a bridge on this network continuum.

The Power of Reflection in an Ever-Changing World

Charles Jennings

This is one reason for the increased interest and activity in experiential and social learning in the past few years. Learning Through Conversation : we learn through our interactions and dialogue with others – through informal coaching and mentoring, and building social networks inside and outside work. We learn through taking the opportunity to reflect both in the workflow and away from our work.

What is innovation?

Harold Jarche

Innovation is dependent on learning in networks. Social learning is about getting things done in networks. Effective working in networks requires cooperation, meaning there is no fixed plan, structure, or direct feedback. Through social learning we can co-develop emergent practices. Social learning is how we move from transactions to relationships and foster knowledge mobilization. Innovation is inextricably linked to both networks and learning.

Working Socially

Harold Jarche

Why should I, as an OD/HR/L&D professional, concerned with the human aspects of organizations, have to understand social media and enterprise social networks? Saying we don’t need to understand social media is like saying we didn’t need to understand speaking, reading or writing to do our jobs before. However, working in online social networks takes practice to be proficient. It means being social in our work. Social means human.

Enterprise knowledge sharing requires trusted relationships

Harold Jarche

As the economy gets more networked, open organizations are becoming a necessity. Businesses are increasingly dependent on complex social interactions. Internally, work teams that need to share complex knowledge require tighter social bonds. But the major barrier to encouraging informal social relationships at work often comes down to a question of control. This is social. Much of our work today is in knowledge networks.

And of course the social network software – profiles and locators as well as communication and collaboration tools – should be under the purview of L&D.

the agile sensemaking model

Harold Jarche

But I, and many others, have thousands of connections on social media platforms like LinkedIn. Increasing awareness of new ideas, methods, and processes often comes through serendipitous encounters outside the workflow. Workers in a creative network economy are no longer replaceable machine parts, filling defined job descriptions, but rather knowledge artisans , choosing their work and tools. This is why social networks cannot also be work teams, or they become echo chambers.

Supporting self-managed team learning in the organisation

Jane Hart

So supporting self-managed team learning is not about providing them with courses as they do their work, helping them to find their own courses, or even helping them to create their own courses for one another – rather it is about helping them to share their knowledge, experiences, ideas and resources as part of their daily workflow. Helping to ensure knowledge sharing is part of the daily workflow – so it is not seen as an extra initiative – but an integral part of daily work.

Working Smarter in Social Business

Jay Cross

To be successful, a social business’s learning function must break out of the training department and spread throughout the organizational infrastructure. Installing social network software and encouraging people to exploit their connections is only the beginning. The fabric of the social business must incorporate structures and guidance to help people learn. This takes more than access to social networks, blogs, and wikis.

As complexity increases in the networked economy, we need to integrate learning into the workflow. Communities of practice bridge the gap between getting work done and serendipitously connecting to looser social networks. Learning and development in the networked workplace must move from content delivery to community enablement. Harold Jarche will discuss some new approaches to support informal and social learning in the workplace.

The Power of Networks in a Complex (Business) World

Luis Suarez

One of the things that I am continuing to find rather fascinating and intriguing altogether is how, time and time again, even now in 2013, I still keep bumping, every so often, into various different people who keep questioning the validity and (business) value of checking vanity pages, as they usually call them, when referring to social networking profiles from knowledge workers / practitioners. To them, social networking is just a complete waste of time.

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

As with knowledge artisans , many learners now own their knowledge-sharing networks. Today, content capture and creation tools let people tell their own stories and weave these together to share in their networks. What started as forums and wikis quickly evolved into more robust networks and communities. Since few people work in the same room as all their co-workers, they rely on online networks to offer them a common space to find and offer work narration.

Changing Role of the LMS

Xyleme

I have worked with an LMS bundled by a major ERP system provider which had, by far, the most unintuitive interface and user workflows I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Systems like social networking tools – which enable better communication across organisational silos. It seems that, for years, people have been writing obituaries for the corporate Learning Management System (LMS).

To the point where from a typical 8 hour work day, and we all know those have ceased to exist many years ago, despite current research indicating how beneficial 40 hour work weeks are , a large chunk of that workflow is dedicated to rather processing email or hop around from meeting to meeting (Even virtual ones!)

Learning in 2024 #LRN2024

Clark Quinn

While I couldn’t participate in the twitter chat they held, I optimistically weighed in: “learning in 2024 will look like individualized personal mentoring via augmented reality, AI, and the network” However, I thought I would elaborate in line with a series of followup posts leveraging the #lrn2024 hashtag. And I reckon most learners have begun to use technology in their own ways to get answers, whether via the Google, or social networks like FaceBook and LinkedIn.

The new workplace

Jay Cross

Today’s common wisdom is that most workplace learning is experiential, unplanned, social, and informal. People trying to figure everything out all out by themselves are whizzing their way to overload and breakdown; collective wisdom and social filters are the only way to keep up. Companies are connecting people with social network technology. The merged workflow/learning that flow through these networks makes or breaks the enterprise’s sustainability.

Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does!

and provides an image that addresses a good spectrum of skills for the network era. But when complex work, the driver of the creative economy, gets a stream of new ideas that have been developed in trusted communities of practice, which are informed by even broader social networks, then we have the foundation for a true digital workplace. Learning out loud in our social networks helps to seek new opinions and share our own with a diverse group of people.

Open Business Strategies – Helping Someone Else Achieve Their Goals

Luis Suarez

Over the course of the last few years, there have been a good number of occasions where, when working with fellow colleagues, customers or business partners, plenty of knowledge workers kept asking me what would be the best way for them to get started with their own adoption efforts of social software, both inside and outside of the firewall, so that it wouldn’t be too painful, but at the same time they wouldn’t lag behind too much in the attempt.
