Too bad that it is only in Russian, as I can't make much sense of whether there is real value in there or not. Or is it there a western language edition?
RPattinson-Daily's comment, October 14, 2012 5:20 AM
Robin Good, thank You for attention to my comment. Unfortunately, due to crisis of 2008 plans of creation its western language edition were terminated. However, concept, technologies, business model of such recommendation service for creative goods (books, movies, music) were described in book “The Economics of Symbolic Exchange” by Alexander Dolgin (2006) (http://www.amazon.com/Economics-Symbolic-Exchange-Alexander-Dolgin/dp/354079882X). I was content curator, market researcher and editor of this book.
It can be read by parts/chapters depending on interest (see its Contents in Amazon). For example, chapter 1.3 about consumer navigation in creative industry such as online music market, ch.2.7 – survey of recommender systems. The music industry was first where recommendation systems based on collaborative filtering were implemented (for example Last.Fm, and many others). How well they are working you may check out for music – Last.Fm (www.last.fm), for movies – Netflix (www.netflix.com).

Lessons From Great Storytellers: LinkedIn Speaker Series with Nancy Duarte

Lessons From Great Storytellers: LinkedIn Speaker Series with Nancy Duarte | KM Insights | Scoop.it
Great ideas can change the world. But, they can only do so when effectively communicated. A powerful story is one of the best ways we can share our world-changing ideas.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 11, 2:52 AM

Nancy Duart explains the art of storytelling, distilling it down to 3 key points:

 

1. Build a structure to your story. The shape of great communication follows a simple 3 act structure – beginning, middle and end. And, it has an undulating structure moving back and forth from what is to what could be, ending with a new bliss.

2. Understand what will resonate. Great storytellers send signals that resonate with their audience. They talk to audiences at their resonant frequency in a way that moves them. And they make the audience their hero with the goal to move their audience from one state to another through the power of story.

3. Imagine and poetically describe an amazing future. Great storytellers take a step back from their current reality. They declare the future using their prophetic imagination, and craft their words well. Their speeches are expansive and also contemplative, giving their audiences space to dream.

Absorptive Capacity, Knowledge Management and Innovation

Absorptive Capacity, Knowledge Management and Innovation | KM Insights | Scoop.it
Let’s start with some defining statements. Innovation is totally dependent on becoming aware of external ideas and innovations. We can ‘fall over these’ or we can find ideas or concepts through exp...
Dick Cheuk's insight:

Cohen and Levinthal (1990, p.128) purpose the concept of absorptive capability which is the “ability to recognise the value of new information, assimilate it, and apply it to commercial ends”.  Compare to this three stages knowledge absorption process: recognition, assimilation and application, Zahra and George (2002, p.186) extend absorptive capability into “a set of organisational capability to acqurie, assimilate, transfrom and exploit knowledge to produce a dynamic organisational capability”.  They separate absorptive capability into potential absorptive capability which focuses on acquiring and assimilating external knowledge; and realised absorptive capability which focus on leverage and reuse the absorbed knowledge.

 

A key component for absorptive capability is prior knowledge.  The ability to evaluate and utilise outside knowledge requires the organisation’s prior related knowledge .  In another word, prior knowledge is a fundamental component for knowledge assimilating and reusing of absorbed knowledge.
