The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.

 

Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:43 AM
@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:54 AM
@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.

Lots of good thinking and activities here - must read!

Tom Hood's curator insight, January 26, 2013 10:02 AM

Collaboration is the #1 skill wanted by global CEOs according to IBM's Global Ceo Study from 2012. Don Tapscott is one of my favorites since I saw him live at an Association DigitalNow Confernce around the year 2000. He was a major influencer in our generational work and hs great book, Grown Up Digital. Also Wikinomics and MacroWikinomics are great reads.

The Networking of Knowledge and Storytelling: David Weinberger for the Future of StoryTelling 2012

"Western culture's traditional system of knowledge is a stunning achievement," says author and Harvard Internet scholar David Weinberger at the outset of this thought-provoking video. "It made us the dominant species on the planet." But it was constructed as a series of stopping points: you asked a question, and you got an answer—on the page of a book or newspaper, say, or from an expert or a teacher. That system worked well when knowledge was put down on paper. Now knowledge lives on the hyperlinked Net, and links offer a never-ending invitation to go further, to know more. What are the implications of a future in which human knowledge is no longer a finite compendium of scholarly works but rather a limitless, intricately connected network of people, ideas, and works?"

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

David Hain's curator insight, January 28, 2013 4:32 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.

The New Enterprise Literacy

The New Enterprise Literacy | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it
Each new advance in communication and learning technology has expanded the possibilities for communication, knowledge capture and distribution. In each case, it took a while to understand the possibilities and the implications. Much of sensitive communication with most enterprises occurs through direct person-to-person conversations, or at least through e-mails. Even users of e-mail are becoming more aware of how public they can be. Now with the increasing use of social media, asynchronous transparent conversations are on the increase. What does this mean? The invention of the phonetic alphabet around 700 B.C. made enabled a number of unforeseen and unintended capabilities.

In the pre-writing oral tradition, the conditions for the preservation of ideas were mnemonic. To promote memory, instruction and knowledge preservation made use of verbal and musical rhythms; however, these rhythms placed severe limits on the verbal arrangement of what was said, as in Homer, and the need to memorize used up cognitive energy that otherwise could have been devoted to learning and innovation. Because of the heavy memory load, the epic poets did not actually memorize content verbatim; they created new versions from a set of possibilities as they went along.

What is your firm's strategy to manage knowledge? - Daily Nation

Knowledge management is emerging as a major challenge in the ever-changing organisational labour market due to increasing mobility, even at senior levels.

Businesses are grappling with managing institutional memory that comes as a key plug in solving regular problems.

It is critical, therefore, to understand the components of knowledge as a firm’s intellectual property. This understanding helps in the development of an appropriate knowledge management strategy.

Exploratory Design for Curated Collections: Empowering Spatial, Experiential Interaction Through Information Landscapes

Exploratory Design for Curated Collections: Empowering Spatial, Experiential Interaction Through Information Landscapes | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Scott:  This is a thoughtful and helpful perspective which is simultaneously theoretical and practical.  The ideas are intriguing and I look forward to exploring them further.  If 'search' and 'browse' don't seem to scratch your itch, I think this article is well worth reading.

 

 

Robin Good: Tim Wray explores the new frontiers of curated collections (from a museum perspective), and in doing so, he analyzes the concept of "landscapes", a possible emerging metaphor for how large sets of relevant information items could be better organized for viewing, even outside the specific museum setting.

 

His goal in doing this is one of finding out how to build effective interfaces that reveal and unravel narratives within collections. How can that be designed into the collection?

 

Tim Wray is particularly interested in this research, because he is also the brain behind a new and upcoming app called A Place for Art, and which has likely lots to do with art exploration and discovery.

 

The key point he makes in this interesting article (part of a longer series) is the illustration of the two concepts of "containers" and "landscapes", and about how they closely relate to the organization and access of curated collections.

 

In Tim Wray's view, the future, especially when we look at large collections, is in the increased adoption of "landscapes" organizing approaches versus the ever-present "container" approach we use for most collections today.

 

He writes: "I hint at the necessary shift from the former to the latter as a mechanism for providing context for objects, and how landscapes – combined with engaging interaction designs and the notion of pliability – can used as a way of providing immersive experiences for museum collections."

 

I think that Tim's ideas reflect a growing critical issue for anyone who attempts to curate large collections of information items: having an organization and navigation system that helps the newcomer, find and discover what it may interest him the most.

 

I myself feel quite frustrated by the absence of curation tools that truly allow me to organize and make accessible / discoverable large lists of information items in more effectives ways than the typical list, table or grid.

 

But I am positive that the future of curation will inevitably revolve around those who will find, invent and design new and effective ways to do so.

 

P.S.: Tim Wray is a PhD student that looks at how computational methods and interaction design can be used to create beautiful, engaging experiences for museum collections.

 

Very Interesting. Must-read for app designers. 9/10

OMP Digital's curator insight, January 3, 2013 11:44 AM

This video is to be watched by all interested in curation. As curation and creatively becomes a much in demand skill, how can those content marketers looking for that easy share produce more content in less time? Well this video shall aim to answer that along with other inspiring ideas

IdeaEncore's curator insight, January 8, 2013 3:49 PM

Scott: Very helpful to see the subtlty of variations on curation

 

Robin:This is an oustandingly good video about "curation". After nine months from its first appearance, it undoubtedly deserves a second pass on my newsradar here, as I think this is a clip that, in less than three minutes, can do a good job to explain what curation really is to anyone not familiar with it. 

 

I find this video clip such a marvellous piece of inspiring content that I have decided to post it again, giving the opportunity to you - if you haven't seen it yet - to look at curation with eyes distant light-years from those of the content marketer looking for easy shortcuts to produce more content in less time, - and if you have seen it already - to look at it again and to pause and think about how you are going to take up and make yours some of the inspiring ideas shared in this clip.

 

Asking yourself more questions about how you curate and for what final purpose you do it, can only be a healthy exercise in refining this much in-demand skill.

 

 

To be watched by anyone interested in curation. 8/10

Managing Personal Knowledge, Data and Information – Scientific ... | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it
For some reason Christmas time makes me think about personal knowledge/information management. Perhaps it comes from the quest to track down the list of Christmas card addresses (did they move? do they have kids now?) or perhaps it comes from the scramble to sort out exactly what I taught and who I helped with research over the Fall semester. Maybe it comes from thinking about fun organizational tools to put on my Christmas list. No matter the reason, I thought I’d share a bit about my tools and strategies.

The tools I use to manage my own personal information can roughly be divided into two main categories: tools to manage information that I create, and tools to manage my acquisition and consumption of information created by others.

Knowledge Management and Innovation | The WritePass Journal | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it
Knowledge is a powerful weapon for any institution, whether belonging to business, politics, social work or art. It plays a vital role in the functioning of any organisation, especially if the organisation is a business organisation seeking to take maximum advantage of the knowledge that it is has collected and organised, making sure it is managed in a proper way. Systematic organisation of knowledge ensures superiority of the firm over its competitors. The concept of knowledge management refers to modifying the present set of organisational processes so that the level of productivity as well as its outcomes can be enhanced. The key to knowledge management is to understand the value of every part of knowledge; the fast-moving business environment of today is entirely knowledge driven and dependent upon it. The knowledge outcomes of an organisation are not directly managed, integrated or created by the knowledge management but knowledge processes of the organisation are influenced by the knowledge management and also influence the knowledge outcomes

The Crowdsourcing Revolution at KPMG: How to Harness the Power of the People

The Crowdsourcing Revolution at KPMG: How to Harness the Power of the People | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

At a session, titled at KMWorld 2012, Ian Coyne (now with Russell Reynolds Associates) began by asking, “What is the difference between a banana and pretty much every other fruit.” He then promised to explain why that question started a crowdsourcing revolution at KPMG.

In 2010, Coyne and a fellow KPMG consultant emerged from a meeting with a luxury ice cream maker with a problem to be solved. How could that manufacturer make banana ice cream more quickly and efficiently? At the time, the company was employing college students to peel bananas, and it wasn’t effective.

Having no idea how to solve the problem, they sent out an email to around 100 of their colleagues at KPMG. Here’s ho
