Eight Dangers of Collaboration

Eight Dangers of Collaboration | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Most of what is written about collaboration is positive. Even hip. Collaboration is championed enthusiastically by the Enterprise 2.0 experts, as well as leading thinkers like Don Tapscott, as the crucial approach for the 21st century.

Via Dick Cheuk
David Hain's insight:

Sound sense.  It's often portrayed as "four legs good, 2 legs bad". But the cost of poorly thought out collaboration is high and only breeds cynicsm against the best reasons for applying collaborative methods.  Also, collaboration takes more than one form and the method should be chosn carefully for the problem and context.

Collaboration just likes everything.  Use it correctly, it helps; use it incorrectly, it hurts.

PKM in 2013 | Harold Jarche

PKM in 2013 | Harold Jarche | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

"Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. But what we loosely call knowledge, using terms like knowledge-sharing or knowledge capture, is often just an approximation. As knowledge management expert Dave Snowden says, we are not very good at articulating our knowledge; “We always know more than we can say, and we will always say more than we can write down.”

 

...

 

PKM is a framework for individuals to take control of their professional development while working in organizations or across networks. Disciplined personal knowledge management brings focus to the information sea we swim in. The multiple pieces of information that we capture and share can increase the frequency of serendipitous connections, especially across disciplines and outside organizations. As Steven Johnson, author of Where Good Ideas Come From says; “chance favors the connected mind“.

David Hain's insight:

I think this is a fantastic concept and thank all the mmbers of my own PKN on Twitter, Scoopit and LinkedIn!

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 27, 2013 1:04 AM

"knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore learning consists of the ability to construct and traverse those networks. Knowledge, therefore, is not acquired, as though it were a thing. It is not transmitted, as though it were some type of communication."


One of the dangers of our ability to learn "on the go", anywhere and at any time, is that we will not take the time to synthesize new information.  


Knowing your purpose, checking in often and then blogging is one way you can be sure to connect the wide array of dots collected during the day.

Imagine getting all of the key notes of the thought leaders in the conference pushed to you in real time. That is why we love Twitter with our conferences.

 

We have found twitter to be a great learning augmentation and support tool for conferences and key leanring events. We use a hashtag and then produce a tweetbook post conference and share with attendees. These community notelbooks are great to recap conferences in blog posts, share learning with people unable to attend, and extend the insights from the conferences.

Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library & Museum announces first Wikipedian in Residence — Wikimedia blog | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Graduate student and Wikipedian Michael Barera became the first Wikipedian in Residence at a U.S. presidential library last week. Barera, who attends the University of Michigan’s School of Information, is serving as resident at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library & Museum, which is located on the university’s Ann Arbor campus.

 

This fresh partnership is a wonderful example of how outreach and education about Wikimedia projects can be key components for fostering opportunities such as this. Barera, who has been editing Wikipedia articles and uploading photographs to Wikimedia Commons for over five years, joined the Michigan Wikipedians, a student club on campus, and the first of its kind in the United States. Through the club, Berera attended a seminar held by the Wikipedia Education Program in the fall of 2012. The seminar educated attendees about the opportunities for using Wikipedia in the classroom as a learning tool and showcased partnerships being held around the country.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 17, 2013 5:23 PM

I love this article because it points to 3 specific stories that need to be shared in order for social change to happen.


If you are a business or nonprofit focused on making a difference in the world and advocating for social change, these 3 stories are critical to craft and tell.


As the author Cynthia Starks says, the stories need to be:

  1. The story of Self -- why YOU are passionate about this cause. This is the story that most people/organizations ignore. But if people don't know who you are and why you are involved, minimal trust and influence will be built. 
  2. The story of Us -- which is a story of inclusiveness. In crafting social change stories, people want to come together in community. 
  3. The story of Now -- which is a story that builds urgency and galvanizes action.


This is a quick article with more insights than I shared. So go read it :)

And if you look at what’s working where the places that are growing economically in America, places that are doing best around the world, you have these creative networks of cooperation."
