How Social Media Can Spur Organizational Transformation

How Social Media Can Spur Organizational Transformation | Dave B's Collaboration in Organisations | Scoop.it
Executives for the most part don’t get social media. But it’s not their fault. After all, many corporate execs don’t even read their own email – how are they expected to realize the benefits of new platforms if many don’t use them personally?
David Bramley's insight:

Introducing social media into your organisation is the easy bit, if you want to transform the way employees work it needs executive support and participation.  This post provides further support to the arguement that a shift in philosophy can unlock competitive advantages

Facilitating collaborative learning: A recipe for success « Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies | Dave B's Collaboration in Organisations | Scoop.it
David Bramley's insight:

Cooperation in action.  Jane Hart and Harold Jarche share their recipe for designing and delivering facilitated collaborative learning.  I have participated in a number of their courses and have no hesitation recommending the experience from a learners perspective.  However, it is the quality of the activities and the skill of the facilitators that makes the recipe successful

 

This link will also take you to the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies, which is full of fantastic resources..two for the price of   one :)

"This year, I’ve been trying to make work better at my firm by building a large collaboration movement. Part of that has been getting people to know about and use a new social platform."  John Stepper

 

I love Malcolm Gladwell's "Tipping Point" and this blog is a great reminder of how the principles can be used in a very practical way.  I'm trying to to encourage collaboration in my oganisation and I'll certainly be looking for "Tastemakers"

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge

Really interesting post on Collective Intelligence from Thomas W Malone, founding director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence.  Also, love the reference to collective stupidity :)

 

Not sure if I'm missing something...there's no reference to social learning or connectivism!  Not very promising for edX MOOC's :)

What L&D Professionals Should Know About Tin Can API | Upside Learning Blog

What L&D Professionals Should Know About Tin Can API | Upside Learning Blog | Dave B's Collaboration in Organisations | Scoop.it

This is my first introduction to the Tin Can API and my immediate thought is that this holds the potential to revolutionise continuing professional development (CPD).  In the first section Aneesh sets out how he learned about Tin Can API:

 

"- I trawled through multiple blogs
- I participated in discussion forums on Linkedin
- I viewed quite a few You Tube videos
- I viewed presentations on Slideshare
- I had numerous one-on-one conversations with my colleagues as well as peers in other   organizations
- I used my mobile phone to chat with my boss about this"

 

It seems Tin Can API can record these activities in  a Learner Record Store, which makes you wonder why the UK government is spending millions developing Unique Learner Records?  But that's another question!

"It’s estimated that 75 percent of enterprise-level organizations will adopt a social collaboration platform in 2013.  It’s time for these platforms to have their moment in the sun, not because they’re the “next big thing,” but because they are essential to the future of how business is done."

Are You Giving Up Power?

You know that social interactions with the marketplace are becoming a source for innovation, strategy, product development, organizational alignment, and pretty much every important thing your organization does.
David Bramley's insight:

Organisations will only leverage the full benefits of social interactions if senior staff can adapt to empower all members of staff.  This blog provides the following advice:

 

"Thriving in the Social Era requires different skills: collaborating rather than commanding, framing and guiding rather than telling, and sharing power rather than hoarding it. Can you make the change? Yes. Will you? Well, only you can decide that."

"I suggest starting with a core group who understand the specific context of how they can they can better share knowledge and collaborate in their unique organization. Over time they can model the behaviours for others in the organization. However, leadership needs to be engaged and supportive."  Harold Jarche

 

We can talk about learning organisations until the cows come home', but if people don't start to share and collaborate, it's never going to happen!

From Hierarchy to Collaboration: Changing the Way We Work and Learn | Business 2 Community | Dave B's Collaboration in Organisations | Scoop.it

“To today’s innovative worker, collaboration is what work is all about. In the old way of thinking, employees make themselves valuable through what they know. But in the new way, people make themselves valuable by seeking opportunities to work with others and tapping into the expertise that others possess."

 

This is a quote from an IBM report written in 2008.  It's taken time to happen,but it is time to break up the silo's!
