The 7 Most Powerful Ideas In Learning Available Right Now | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

"Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y. But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise."

Nader Ale Ebrahim's curator insight, February 23, 2013 8:44 AM

In this paper, we present our more than two years research experiences on virtual R&D teams in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and draws conclusions, giving special attention to the structure of virtual teams required to support education-industry collaboration. We report the relevant results of an online survey study. The online questionnaire was emailed by using a simple random sampling method to 947 manufacturing SMEs. The findings of this study show that SMEs in Malaysia and Iran are willing to use virtual teams for collaboration and the platform for industry-education collaboration is ready and distance between team members or differences in time zones, are not barriers to industry-education collaborations.

What differentiates crowdsourcing from co-creation? These two buzzwords are used a variety of contexts today, which leads to a general confusion about the difference between these terms which are, let’s admit it, conceptually close. Even Quora’s answers are more confusing than enlightning!Joyce Van Dijk brings a valuable contribution to the discussion, and in this post we will complement it by findings from an academic paper, Crowdsourcing of Inventive Activities : Definition and Limits (Penin & Burger-Helmchen, 2011).

MOOCs are one of the hot topics in e-learning and Higher Education at the moment.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, April 2, 2013 8:13 AM

What follows - the manifest - is a list of 23 items which can best be seen as individual statements about what MOOCs are (or not) and what you can do with them (or cannot). It is not an (extensive) attempt to define MOOCs or a call for action on what we should do with MOOCs. Keeping that in mind, the list is useful as a summary of the many items that are raised in discussions on MOOCs (orginal in Spanish) (@pbsloep)

Draw Lines in the Sand to Jumpstart Virtual Team

[Nancy Sttle-Murphy & David Kershaw - Guided Insight]

Virtual teams are hard to see. That's why the boundaries that define the scope, accountabilities, roles, reporting relationships, tasks and deliverables can be pretty tough to grasp. That is, if they exist at all.

 

Why? Some teams simply assume that everyone has a shared understanding of the big picture. If that's true, the thinking goes, then no need to waste time discussing something that goes without saying. Other teams may actually prefer blurry boundaries, thinking that they may feel more unified if members aren't "put in boxes." And some teams just prefer to address any prevailing confusion or conflicts as they inevitably arise. No use having these "touchy-feely" conversations unless they're really necessary, right? There's so much work to do and so little time!

 

Here David and I explore some of the usual challenges virtual teams face when it comes to carving out clear boundaries, the challenges that emerge in the absence of such boundaries, and some possible remedies.

Oblique innovation strategies more likely to be successfull

Oblique innovation strategies more likely to be successfull | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

The most profitable companies are not the most profit-orientated. The most successful cities aren’t the most planned. And the happiest people do not pursue happiness.

At least so say’s John Kay in his new book Obliquity. He makes a convincing case that our goals are best achieved indirectly. This is contrary to the majority of businesses, economists and policy makers who still favour direct (mechanical and deterministic) strategies – where rationality is prized more highly than good decision making.
