With an unprecedented digital data storm raging through the business world, knowledge workers may spend up to 30% of their working day looking for people and relevant information to do their job. A waste of precious time and human resources that can be dramatically reduced by providing employees with appropriate structures, practices and ICT technology —putting mobility, collaboration and knowledge sharing on the foreplan. #kmers #CoPs

"The two key elements of the transformation are the flexibility of the work process and the interconnection in company networks and the individuals inside those companies"

Stephen Dale's curator insight, October 11, 2013 11:21 AM

From the article:


The collaborative enterprise is actually being born demanding a series of positions and competences like: the capacity to make decisions independently, flexibility to work in any place and at any moment with any person, and the capacity of organization. These are the basics of Smart Collaboration.

The Modern Workplace: Introverts Need Not Apply

The Modern Workplace: Introverts Need Not Apply | Collaboration | Scoop.it

Workplaces are increasingly designed to foster teamwork, guided by beliefs such as these:


  • "None of us is as smart as all of us"
  • "Innovation ... is fundamentally social"
  • "Many jobs that we regard as the province of a single mind actually require a crowd"


Open plan offices and group brainstorming sessions are physical manifestations of this mindset. The problem is, they may actually decrease productivity, particularly for introverts. To understand why, we must understand the drivers of introversion.

The modern workplace is not for the introverts 

Dr. Alison Eyring's curator insight, October 6, 2013 8:54 PM

Forget that title! Introverts who perform are most welcome in modern workplaces. They need to ensure they are spending time building relationships and are getting their views heard by others. At the same time, extroverts need to ensure they are not hogging all the space in the conversation or dominating groups when they lack sufficient knowledge. A modern workplace also is an inclusive one.

It’s easy to remain agile when you are part of a small team. But how do you stay productive as you grow? Talking. Lots and lots of talking.

We like to attribute magic-like qualities to most startups. Collectively, we marvel at their ability to focus on a single, potentially world-changing product. We praise the inclusiveness and camaraderie of their employees. Their ability to move quickly is the envy of every major corporation.

Come Together, Right Now - It's Good for Business | Collaboration | Scoop.it

Companies that collaborate on certain projects with other firms can reap greater rewards than going it alone.
    

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

According to a new study in Advances in Strategic Management from Jason Davis at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, companies can synchronize their product development work in three ways:


1. By deliberately collaborating with partners;
2. By reacting to signals from other companies; and
3. By combining these two strategies into a hybrid approach.
