Introducing the networkistas

Introducing the networkistas | Networks | Scoop.it
#networkista* *someone interested in finding ways to apply network thinking for social benefit

The idea of applying network thinking and theory for community and social benefit is not new. Some have been investigating and applying this for many years; others are newcomers to the idea. But we all think the time is right to spread understanding of network theory and network building more generally. We’re aware too that there’s a growing number of people who are interested in this and want to explore it further.

What Does the Collaboration “Field” Look Like? | Groupaya

What Does the Collaboration “Field” Look Like? | Groupaya | Networks | Scoop.it

I've chosen this piece becaue (a) collaboration is a topic very close to my heart as a KM professional and  (b) it provides actual data that confirms something I've long suspected - the gap between technologists and organisational change skills.

 

To quote from the author:

I was disappointed, but not surprised, that “collaboration” as a skill was mostly lumped with technology skills. Folks in the Enterprise 2.0 space, for example, have almost no overlap with organizational development professionals. It’s a troubling trend. Although people are fond of saying, “It’s not about technology, it’s about people,” there’s not much practice validating that mantra.

 

Value: 9/10
