Oscar Berg: Introducing – The Digital Collaboration Canvas

Oscar Berg: Introducing – The Digital Collaboration Canvas | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Although the tasks we need to perform come in all shapes and sizes, most rely on a number of basic capabilities such as finding information or locating expertise. The more interdependent our work becomes, the more important these capabilities become to us. If they are weak, our ability to collaborate and create value together as an organization becomes crippled. Therefore improving such capabilities can both reduce a lot of the waste in knowledge work and enable people to work smarter together.

Over the years I have developed a framework of 9 capabilities that are important for knowledge work in general and for collaboration efforts in particular. I use the framework to help clients understand their current ways of working, identify problems and opportunities for improvement, and to explore better ways of working – with digital tools. The framework is illustrated below, inspired by a model by Harold Jarche who combined Ian McCarthy’s honeycomb of social media with an early version of my capabilities framework.

Forget the Vision, Make the Connections

Forget the Vision, Make the Connections | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

New leaders don’t spend nearly enough time and effort being intentional about how they show up and how they spend their own time. The effort they devote to forming meaningful connections with the people in the organization is almost an afterthought.

So true, Kenneth! I'm working with an organisation just now where connecting is exactly what is required for a better future, yet what happens is the meet all the time, till they are begging for respite, and all they talk about is tasks and transactions!

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 22, 2:31 AM

Executives in transition often spend too little time on what matters most: building relationships. Making effective personal connections requires persistent introspection and intention.



donhornsby's curator insight, April 27, 9:51 AM

(From the article): How can you be more intentional? Hall frames intentionality in her own work in eight words that guide each of her interactions: “I want it to matter that we met.” And it should matter for both her and the person she is meeting. There is an implied flexibility in the time horizon; it may matter immediately or several years down the road. Challenge yourself: “I want it to matter that I hold this position,” or “I want it to matter that I am your boss.” How does this affect how you will show up to deliver short-term results and create long-term impact?

Hierarchies in perpetual beta

Hierarchies in perpetual beta | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
One solution to hierarchical teams are self-forming teams. Many of the organizations described in the book, Reinventing Organizations, are based on the principle of self-organization where hierarchies are temporary, negotiated structures. Bosses are often voted on by their peers. Self-organizing teams are much more flexible than hierarchical ones, but they require active and engaged members. One cannot cede power to the boss, because everyone is responsible for the boss they chose. Like democracy, self-organized teams are hard work. But they are best to deal with complexity. As I have said before, hierarchies work well when information flows mostly in one direction: down. They are good for command and control. They are handy to get things done in small groups. But hierarchies are rather useless to create, innovate, or change.

Networks are not a rejection of hierarchy. Networks are a rejection of rigidity. ~ @hjarche

Juliana Loh's curator insight, January 4, 6:18 PM

Why is co-creation and collaboration such a challenge? What barriers are present that prevent co-creation from taking off? Is it individual needs unmet? business goals diffused?  Undefined user needs?  logistics? This is something that needs to be studied before silos can break down. In the end, it's still about knowing who your audience is and tackling issues based on understanding their motivations.

Group-Think: Decision-Making Is Best Done Alone, Relying Too Much On Friends And Family Isn't A Good Thing

Group-Think: Decision-Making Is Best Done Alone, Relying Too Much On Friends And Family Isn't A Good Thing | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Is collective decision-making superior to individual instinct? The over-use of information derived from friends and family produces a sub-optimal result, or so says an international collaboration of scientists — and the irony here is not lost on Medical Daily. In a new study, this team of researchers found “individuals overly rely on social information and evolve to be too readily influenced by their neighbors.” Over time, with individuals failing to honor their instincts, the group becomes less responsive to changes in the natural environment, much to the detriment of all.

What Is Learning? 12 Principles of Peer-Led, Connected, Interactive Education

What Is Learning?  12 Principles of Peer-Led, Connected, Interactive Education | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Here are a baker's dozen of the main principles of connected learning. As you will see, they form an “ecosystem,” where each component influences and changes the others. These apply in any field (although differently in each field). These principles draw from constructivist, engaged “public educators” (Stuart Hall’s term)  going back as far as Lev Vygotsky and John Dewey and including Howard Gardner, Franz Fanon, Jacques Rancière, and digital pedagogy theorists including Yochai Benkler, Howard Rhinegold,  Mizuko Ito, and many others.

Connecting the Dots

Connecting the Dots | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

The idea of seeing the whole picture is something that has continued with me; from developing meaningful lessons to my “Big Idea” visual notes and it was whilst planning this current post that led me to recall a quote from Steve Jobs:“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”

Despite the uniqueness of this quote, most people talk about looking to the future than the past, it rings true for so much that we do. In order to move forwards we must look to the past: to learn from it, to move on from it or to take ourselves somewhere new. There is no point thinking we can develop anything without building on the past, it is the way we have always been. Even Picasso said that all art comes from what precedes it and Kirby Ferguson talked about the remix culture in his TedTalk Embrace the Remix in 2012.

What "collaboration" really means (ThoughtFarmer blog)

What "collaboration" really means (ThoughtFarmer blog) | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
The word “collaboration” is so heavily over-used and over-hyped it’s becoming meaningless. People refer to all social software within a company as “collaboration,” and this causes confusion. Vendors get away with saying whatever they want because they’re not saying anything at all and companies end up failing in their “collaboration” initiatives.

Language is important and with this post I offer up a simple definition of the word “collaboration” — a definition that helps narrow the scope and domain of collaboration and clarify what it really is. Let’s begin with the story of how I’ve become known as “the language police” around the office when it comes to these topics.

The four global forces breaking all the trends | McKinsey

The four global forces breaking all the trends | McKinsey | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
While it is full of opportunities, this era is deeply unsettling. And there is a great deal of work to be done. We need to realize that much of what we think we know about how the world works is wrong; to get a handle on the disruptive forces transforming the global economy; to identify the long-standing trends that are breaking; to develop the courage and foresight to clear the intellectual decks and prepare to respond. These lessons apply as much to policy makers as to business executives, and the process of resetting your internal navigation system can’t begin soon enough.

There is an urgent imperative to adjust to these new realities. Yet, for all the ingenuity, inventiveness, and imagination of the human race, we tend to be slow to adapt to change. There is a powerful human tendency to want the future to look much like the recent past. On these shoals, huge corporate vessels have repeatedly foundered. Revisiting our assumptions about the world we live in—and doing nothing—will leave many of us highly vulnerable. Gaining a clear-eyed perspective on how to negotiate the changing landscape will help us prepare to succeed.

Hold space for complex problems

Hold space for complex problems | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Harold Jarche

"Every one of the major challenges facing us is complex. But our organizations are not designed for complexity. Our education institutions do not teach an understanding of complexity. Our workplace training does not factor in complexity. While not all of our problems are complex, the simpler issues are being dealt with. We need to take what Clay Shirky calls the cognitive surplus, and use it to wrestle with complex problems. Understanding complexity must be part of any informed discussions on government policy or governance. We ignore it at our peril."

Business Value Group International – It’s all about the Grey – A path to Collaboration, Innovation and Teamwork

Business Value Group International – It’s all about the Grey – A path to Collaboration, Innovation and Teamwork | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

I find that real collaboration is often as elusive as the woolly mammoth was just before they went extinct. Thousands of books and articles have been written and will continue to be written about such topics as collaboration, teams, and innovation. (I include innovation in this list as no meaningful innovation can occur without people working with each other in highly creative and productive modes). Many use exhaustive data research and analysis of industries/companies past performance in a quest to improve credibility, however in my humble opinion, little if any of the messages stick or cause behavior changes. Many of the concepts simply become brain candy for a leaders psyche. The lessons and language are mostly consigned to the sub-conscious repository of buzz words that are used to feed meaningless rhetoric and pretend/inauthentic dialogue that rarely yields results in a timely enough manner in this competitive and fast paced world.

The Tactics of Collaboration (SSIR)

The Tactics of Collaboration (SSIR) | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Understanding the tactics of collaboration can help make the unique value of working well together real. It’s important because the whole—all of us, humanity—can be greater than the sum of our parts. We often discuss collaboration in terms of its relationship to competition; competition, at its best, can make each part more valuable and more effective, but collaboration adds value to the whole by focusing on how the parts work together.

Effective collaboration depends on effective relationships between humans. If the right people are in the room, and if there is time and space for like minds and potential partners to find and engage with each other, then even the worst-designed gathering can be productive. If the right people are also talented, driven, and a bit entitled, they will make the space they need to be productive regardless of the meeting’s design. However, setting aside time and space is not the whole story. Effective collaboration also requires that all collaborators gain value from collaborating. When the value is reciprocal, other barriers become smaller and the collaboration is easier to sustain.
