Knowledge work is broken - can social fix it?

Knowledge work is broken - can social fix it? Presentation from Social Business Forum 2012 in Milan, Italy.

Knowledge workers spend from 15% to 35% of their time searching for information.15% of the time is spent on duplicating existing information.

The effective usage rates of enterprise software are down compared to two years ago, with users experiencing productivity losses of around 17%.It’s like giving everyone Friday off.

As work is being distributed across locations and organizations, current digital work environments - primarily designed for personal productivity - make people more isolated and less aware of what is happening at work. It cripples their ability to collaborate and be productive.

Thomas Salmon's curator insight, December 12, 2012 5:49 AM

Is the growing gap between skills via education and those required for work also partly related to this gap that exists in the workplace between digital distribution and barriers to collaboration and productivity? It seems logical that knowledge workers who have learned to work in smarter and more social ways online will be those that are both 'hooked in' and also educated from the start in more team based and participatory environments.

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong | Mid-Week Mentor | Scoop.it
Think you're a great leader? Make sure you aren't guilty of one of these three reality-distorting traits.

 

Every great leader possesses a degree of what Walter Isaacson (in his biography of Steve Jobs) describes as "an ability to distort reality."

 

What Isaacson meant is that Jobs forced his will on Apple, often pushing people to create things they never thought possible--a powerful asset in any leader.

 

But that reality distortion effect works both ways. It also means that every leader, to a greater or lesser degree, distorts the reality around themselves, leading to tensions, inconsistency, and bad decisions.

 

There are two reasons why leaders who live in a bubble become so dangerous to themselves and those they lead.

2012 Towers Watson Global Workforce Study

2012 Towers Watson Global Workforce Study | Mid-Week Mentor | Scoop.it

The 2012 Global Workforce Study provides a snapshot of the attitudes and concerns of 32,000 workers around the world. It sheds light on how employees’ views affect their engagement in their work and commitment to their employers, and ultimately, their behavior and performance on the job. As such, it provides us with important insights into the elements of the work environment that help shape employee behavior and performance in positive ways to support growth goals. And it presents a new and more robust definition of engagement — sustainable engagement — designed for the 21st-century workplace.

Globally, nearly two-thirds (65%) of the more than 32,000 full-time workers participating in our study are not highly engaged. While this isn’t surprising — considering workers have been doing more with less, and for less, for over half a decade — it poses a significant risk for employers. Are they at a critical tipping point in their ability to sustain engagement over time? And if they are, what actions can they take to turn the tide, given the significant implications of declining engagement on productivity and performance?
