What is innovation?

Harold Jarche

In writing almost 100 posts on innovation since 2007, it’s time to put the core observations together into a cohesive narrative. Here goes. Innovation is fifteen different things to fifteen different people.

Being brave

Euen Semple

Most of the organisations I work with have clearly defined groups whose needs they are intended to serve. Increasingly these days there is a desire reach out online to foster a real connection with those people, but most staff in most organisations find it ridiculously difficult to do so. As a participant in a workshop once said "How do you find your authentic voice while working in a stifling bureaucratic environment?"

Facilitate is the new train

Clark Quinn

Ok, so I’m being provocative with the title, since I’m not advocating the overthrow of training. The main idea is that a new area for L&D is facilitation. However, this concept also updates training.

meetings, bloody meetings

Harold Jarche

My introduction to organizing meetings was in the military, where different types of meetings had standard structures. The Orders Format was something any officer could recite from memory.

All hail the Houston Rockets—especially next year

Doc Searls

I thought the Rockets were great in last night’s game—and say that as a Warriors fan. (I I even had season tickets back in the Run TMC era, when tickets were still affordable).

Mutual aid

Euen Semple

The main focus of my workshops over the last couple of weeks for Jobs Australia has been helping people to catch up with the impact of technology on how we live and work. In our conversations I was reminded yet again how people have varying levels of comfort and ability in even the most basic use of technology. There is a very real risk of an emerging digital "underclass" if we don't do something about it.

Hub or spoke?

Clark Quinn

How are learning design teams are distributed (or not) in an organization? I’ve seen both totally separate teams in organizations (spoke), and t otally central ones (hub), and of course gradations in between.

“the strategic and purposeful production of ignorance”

“ You will not achieve an informed public simply by making sure that high quality content is publicly available and presuming that credibility is enough while you wait for people to come find it.

Here’s how Google can save podcasting from getting silo’d

Doc Searls

Give podcasting full respect by making it a search heading. Bing should do it too. Also DuckDuckGo. In fact all search engines should make podcasts a search heading. Simple as that. If they make podcasts a search heading, they’ll make podcasting too big a category to fracture into a forest of silos. This doesn’t mean Apple, Spotify and others can’t continue to offer subscriptions and other forms of aggregation. Or that ListenNotes will go out of business.

Civilisation?

Euen Semple

It is interesting to be back again in remote Australia where the incoming population exists pretty much in parallel with the indigenous one. These "first people" struggle to fit in with our modern world and are often disparaged for their lack of ambition and success. There is also a lot of alcoholism and drug use in their communities. Yet in their own past they were clearly deeply in tune with their environment and respectful of it in a way that we are only now beginning to learn.

Learning Lessons

Clark Quinn

So, I just finished teaching a mobile learning course online for a university. My goal was not to ‘teach’ mobile so much as develop a mobile mindset. You have to think differently than what the phrase ‘mobile learning’ might lead you to think.

movements and rackets

Harold Jarche

Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds. “Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.” ?Eric Eric Hoffer, The Temper of Our Time.

narcissists at work

Harold Jarche

The following series of tweets by @HoarseWisperer is an incredibly good examination of how people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) control those who work for them. I am sure many of us have witnessed similar behaviours in toxic workplaces.

a decade of finds

Harold Jarche

I started Friday’s Finds in May 2009 as an attempt to capture what I was finding on Twitter, as I had joined that platform in December 2007. I felt that I was making a lot of connections but at that time it was difficult to search and retrieve tweets. So I started curating weekly compilations.

Shaming, safety, & misconceptions

Clark Quinn

Another twitter debate , another blog post. As an outgrowth of a #lrnchat debate, a discussion arose around whether making errors in learning could be a source of shaming. This wasn’t about the learners, however, being afraid of being shamed. Instead it was about whether the designers would feel proscribed from making real errors because of their expectation of learner’s emotions. And, I have strong beliefs about why this is an important issue.

Muddling along

Euen Semple

Over dinner last night someone used the phrase "muddling along" to express optimism about the future. It seems a particularly British, or to be more precise English, phrase and attitude. It goes with the landscape. It goes with the weather. It goes with the "nation of shopkeepers" image. I have often thought that one of the greatest strengths of The Church of England is it's non-dogmatic, village fete, muddling along attitude.

Celebrating sameness

Euen Semple

I used to worry about the homogenising effect of modern culture - the fact that every shopping malI the world over is selling the same brand dominated tat - and I would still bemoan the loss of diverse and fascinatingly different cultures. And yet.here I am, sitting on the harbour front in Hong Kong, watching Chinese girls wearing ripped jeans taking selfies, and wondering if this will make it harder to start wars with countries whose daughters also wear ripped jeans

Competencies for L&D Processes?

Clark Quinn

We have competencies for people. Whether it’s ATD, LPI, IBSTPI, IPL, ISPI, or any other acronym, they’ve got definitions for what people should be able to do. And it made me wonder, should there be competencies for processes as well? That is, should your survey validation process, or your design process, also meet some minimum standards? How about design thinking ? There are things you do get certified in, including such piffle as MBTI and NLP.
