Learning is the Work ~ The Future of Jobs

Learning is the Work ~ The Future of Jobs | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

"...automation is replacing most routine work...[leaving] customized work, which requires initiative, creativity and passion."

Valued work, and the environments in which it takes place, is becoming more complex. Professionals today are doing work that cannot be easily standardized.


______________________________

...the optimal way to do work is to constantly probe the environment and test emergent practices...[which] are dependent on the cooperation of all workers [and]... the free flow of knowledge.

______________________________

 

"In complexity, we can determine the relationship between cause and effect only in retrospect. ...[This] puts into question most of our management frameworks that require detailed analysis before we take action. It also shows that identifying and copying best practices is pretty well useless.


"In complex work environments, the optimal way to do work is to constantly probe the environment and test emergent practices. This requires an engaged and empowered workforce. Emergent practices are dependent on the cooperation of all workers (and management) as well as the free flow of knowledge.

 

"Work in complex situations requires a greater percentage of implicit knowledge,...Research shows that sharing complex knowledge requires strong interpersonal relationships. But discovering innovative ideas usually comes through loose social ties. Organizations need both, and communities of practice can help to connect tight work teams with loose social networks.

    

...this new world of work needs individuals who are adept at sense-making. One framework for this is personal knowledge management."


The most effective learning in the new world of work will be when engaged individuals, working out loud, share their knowledge. Training and education will remain inputs, but minor ones.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Harold Jarche make the point of loose -tight structure and customization, dependent on open, sharing environments.  Curation, such as these newsletters on ScoopIt, is a type of personal knowledge management.

Other posts shared in this stream offer the types of open networks and giving, learning, helping environments that can create the needed loose - tight structures for learning.    ~  D

Leaping Learning Lizards! Lanyrd integrates with LinkedIn

Leaping Learning Lizards!  Lanyrd integrates with LinkedIn | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

Integration can be powerful.  This reverberates for many industries including learning, conferences as well as the professional speaking industies.

 

Excerpted:


Lanyrd now helps LinkedIn users discover conferences and professional events based on their LinkedIn connections and profile information.


This fills a gap left by the shutdown of LinkedIn's events application and allows event organizers to continue to take advantage of LinkedIn to promote their events.


LinkedIn users can also use Lanyrd to build their own speaker profiles, get event information on their mobile phones and network more effectively with others at events.

Pinterest is Taking Curation to a Whole New Level - Here's Why

Pinterest is Taking Curation to a Whole New Level - Here's Why | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

Networks, people and business continues to intertwine themselves gently and fiercely, especially on Pinterest.  People don't want brands in their face, except for, perhaps, a favored few.  That may be enough for Pinterest.

.

I use ScoopIt for business & Pinterest for fun / people networks.  Check out my own boards on Pinterest and find out why, along with the review of Pinterest's success below.  


Also, my low-carb chocolate cake Pinterest referral link is here.

 .

Excerpts:

  • Pinterest has pulled quite a bit of attention away from Facebook.   From Oct. 2010 to Oct. 2011, the site grew from 40,000 to 3.2 million monthly unique visitors. That’s 8,000%. 
.

Pinterest curation in action:

  • Pinterest leverages web content from Tumblr like no site that has ever existed, thus riding on top of its network-effect while not requiring user generated content like many services.
  • They've also perfected in-network virality (pin, repin, like) in addition to out of network sharing (Facebook, Twitter) to grow virally.
  • For these reasons Pinterest could conceivable be the most successful site of its kind in the future.
  • Pinterest is [planning to] threatening to monetize, as those Midwest housewives are literally using it for shopping discovery, which Pinterest can profit off of by taking attribution for purchases that originate off its platform.
  • Several people have purchased stuff spontaneously via random discovery on the site.
.

Pinterest should be thriving a year from now .  The author suggests 30 million users next Thanksgiving - and spawning hundreds of copycat startups in other verticals.

Beyond the Hierarchy: Networked Professional Development

Beyond the Hierarchy:  Networked Professional Development | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

It can be difficult to see oneself as a node in multiple networks, as opposed to a more conventional position within an organizational hierarchy.

We have become used to titles, job descriptions, and other institutional trappings. But network thinking can fundamentally change our view of hierarchical relationships.

      

For example, I once ...helped a steering group see their community of practice in a new light. For the first time, they saw it mapped as a network. They immediately realized that they were pushing solutions instead of listening to their community. As a result, they decided to change their Charter and develop more network-centric practices. Thinking in terms of networks can enable us see with new eyes.

    

...As we learn in digital networks, stock (content) loses significance, while flow (conversation) becomes more important – the challenge becomes how to continuously weave the many bits of information and knowledge that pass by us each day.

    

Conversations help us make sense. But we need diversity in our conversations or we become insular. We cannot predict what will emerge from continuous learning, co-creating & sharing at the individual, organizational and market level, but we do know it will make for more resilient organizations.

Pinterest Drives More Traffic Than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn Combined [STUDY]

Pinterest Drives More Traffic Than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn Combined [STUDY] | Agile Learning | Scoop.it
Pinterest now beats YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn and MySpace for percentage of total referral traffic in January.


Wow!  Pinterest is growing like gangbusters, like an 8000% increase, (another Pinterest post in my Peer/Social Learning & Curation stream here.)   It remains to be seen what that means for the company and it's sustainability.


  • Pinterest has pulled quite a bit of attention away from Facebook. From Oct. 2010 to Oct. 2011, the site grew from 40,000 to 3.2 million monthly unique visitors.  That’s 8,000%.   Source:  All Techie News


Excerpts from Mashable:


The darling network of brides-to-be, fashionistas and budding bakers now beats YouTube, Reddit, Google+, LinkedIn and MySpace for percentage of total referral traffic in January, according to a Shareaholic study.


Pinterest accounted for 3.6% of referral traffic, while Twitter just barely edged ahead of the newcomer, accounting for 3.61% of referral traffic. In July 2011, Pinterest accounted for just 0.17% of referral traffic, proving the site’s blockbuster growth.
