Knowledge work is broken - can social fix it?

Knowledge work is broken - can social fix it? Presentation from Social Business Forum 2012 in Milan, Italy.

Knowledge workers spend from 15% to 35% of their time searching for information.15% of the time is spent on duplicating existing information.

The effective usage rates of enterprise software are down compared to two years ago, with users experiencing productivity losses of around 17%.It’s like giving everyone Friday off.

As work is being distributed across locations and organizations, current digital work environments - primarily designed for personal productivity - make people more isolated and less aware of what is happening at work. It cripples their ability to collaborate and be productive.

Thomas Salmon's curator insight, December 12, 2012 5:49 AM

Is the growing gap between skills via education and those required for work also partly related to this gap that exists in the workplace between digital distribution and barriers to collaboration and productivity? It seems logical that knowledge workers who have learned to work in smarter and more social ways online will be those that are both 'hooked in' and also educated from the start in more team based and participatory environments.

Social Re-Connects Enterprise Search

Social Re-Connects Enterprise Search | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Originally published in CMSWire October 23, 2012:

"Enterprise Search continues to go through transformations to improve its usefulness for all employees, since information is common currency for practically everyone in every organization. To be able to agilely collect and reconcile information across disparate repositories and formats, unified search platforms will have to combine multiple search capabilities from enterprise and internet search technologies, as well as BI search and other kinds of analytics. And for it to work well, people need to be able to make use of these layers of disparate search technologies through a single point of access.

It is critical that all employees have the ability to find and analyze information and data across the enterprise. Search is not a separate technology or program – it must integrate with business processes and corporate initiatives as vital infrastructure. Search for all employees aligns with communication, connectedness and collaboration – bringing us into Social constructs."

Researchers mine 2.5M news articles to prove what we already know

Researchers mine 2.5M news articles to prove what we already know | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
A group of British researchers recently analyzed 2.5 million newspaper articles in order to prove that new data analysis techniques, such as machine learning and natural-language processing, can accurately classify media content.

This research underscores the common big data maxim that knowing the right questions to ask is now the biggest challenge in gleaning insights from data. It’s increasingly easy to get data, analyze it and visualize it, so humans really just need to hypothesize and be able to explain the results. (This also seems like a good place to plug ScraperWiki as a great source for gathering potential research data from websites.)

Organizing P2P Organizations | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Security, dignity, civic/legal/moral equality, justice, education, love, fun…all these are common-sense, plain language values that almost every sane person shares. This is where any thought about the politico-economic arrangements of society, especially the “commons”, should begin. We should build up from these in the simplest and most direct fashion possible. And perhaps with as little theory and philosophy as possible.

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir - based on Virtual Collective Empathy?

Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir  - based on Virtual Collective Empathy? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Britlin Losee was a breakthrough for Whitacre's musical creative mind, not only through her dazzling admiration to the artist but most important through her deeply intimate and spontaneous endeavor. Her sensational YouTube video message is a load of emotional cues. This young girl inspired what is now referred to as Eric Whitacre's virtual choir. The hundreds of vocalists who responded to Whitacre's online appeal had to follow his "silent" directing gestures and provide their own tinge to the performance. Thus, the psychological phenomena underlying such amazing virtual collective action are worthy to be addressed.

How to build a killer content marketing strategy « Content Marketing Blog by Newsvend

How to build a killer content marketing strategy « Content Marketing Blog by Newsvend | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

All of a sudden, content marketing is bandied about everywhere online. But what does it really take to build a killer content marketing strategy?

 

Excellent article with some great take-aways for companies looking to drive more leads through online activities, especially content marketing. I particularly liked the quote from Hubspot:

 

Add more content

According to inbound marketing company Hubspot, businesses that add at least 20 articles a month to their website get five times more traffic than those businesses that write at most once a week.

 

I also liked the chart showing the broad range of content marketing you could be doing aligned along an axis of inexpensive and easy to expensive and time consuming.

Collective Intelligence

Collective Intelligence | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

As all the people and computers on our planet get more and more closely connected, it's becoming increasingly useful to think of all the people and computers on the planet as a kind of global brain.

 

THOMAS W. MALONE is the Patrick J. McGovern Professor of Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management and the founding director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence. He was also the founding director of the MIT Center for Coordination Science and one of the two founding co-directors of the MIT Initiative on "Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century".

 

Pretty much everything I'm doing now falls under the broad umbrella that I'd call collective intelligence. What does collective intelligence mean? It's important to realize that intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual brains. It also arises with groups of individuals. In fact, I'd define collective intelligence as groups of individuals acting collectively in ways that seem intelligent. By that definition, of course, collective intelligence has been around for a very long time. Families, companies, countries, and armies: those are all examples of groups of people working together in ways that at least sometimes seem intelligent.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.
