Eight Dangers of Collaboration

Eight Dangers of Collaboration | KM Insights | 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.
Dick Cheuk's insight:

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

David Hain's curator insight, January 28, 2013 1:32 AM

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.

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.

Lessons From Great Storytellers: LinkedIn Speaker Series with Nancy Duarte

Lessons From Great Storytellers: LinkedIn Speaker Series with Nancy Duarte | KM Insights | Scoop.it

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.
