"The knowledge sharing paradox is that while sharing our knowledge is good for the organization, each individual has to see a personal benefit as well. The more the enterprise directs knowledge-sharing, the less likely it will happen. Conversely, the less structured the process, the more difficult it is for the organization to benefit. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t, or so it seems."

Social media engages employees and increases productivity, according to Deloitte’s Centre for the Edge - WhaTech

Social media engages employees and increases productivity, according to Deloitte’s Centre for the Edge - WhaTech | Knowledge Managment | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Germano:

"Peter Williams, Deloitte’s Chief Edge Officer, said even though the average Australian spends around 22 hours using social media each week, many organisations are unaware how the smart use of these skills can improve productivity and engagement.

The recently released report, Rethinking social media: Building the social organisation through HR, produced by the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) and Deloitte’s Centre for the Edge, examines social media usage by HR practitioners.

“Social media is becoming increasingly important as a way of building an organisation’s social capital” (refer definition below), said Mr Williams. “Social tools help organisations connect networks of people, promote idea sharing among their employees and drives innovation. Tapping into the collective wisdom of an employee base can help an organisation ‘know what it knows’ more quickly than relying on more traditional knowledge management systems.”

Should we believe more in Big Data or in magic?

Should we believe more in Big Data or in magic? | Knowledge Managment | Scoop.it
Data analysis is very similar to performing magic. With great skill you can pull things together and create the perception of surprising relationships. Often the magic is getting people to look at one thing, when they should be seeing another.

"but the use of big data is worth the risk. Statistical analysis is an imperfect process, but it’s all we have to make sense of big data. With any new, transformative innovation there exists potential to take it too far or use it incorrectly. The same can be said for cars, airplanes or new financial products. The benefits of more innovation and information usually outweigh the costs. We can minimize these risks with greater awareness of a new innovation’s limitations. McKinsey advocates more training and apprenticeships so we have more people who can run and manage data. This is certainly necessary, but not sufficient. We must also view any statistical result with the same humility and skepticism we experience when we see a magic trick."
