IBM Collective Intelligence

IBM Collective Intelligence | Social Media, Social Might | Scoop.it

"Can an organization that chooses to ignore the insights of employees, customers and business partners expect to thrive? For many, the answer is no. In a global environment where innovation cycles are shrinking, customer expectations are rising and talent is becoming more distributed, companies are seeing the need to more effectively apply the knowledge and experience of individuals, regardless of their vocation, affiliation or organization status.
Fortunately, the opportunity to more effectively apply Collective Intelligence – the aggregated knowledge, insight and expertise of a diverse group – has become a reality. As individuals become more adept and comfortable sharing thoughts and ideas in virtual spaces, companies can use these insights to address critical business challenges. Harnessing Collective Intelligence can play an important role in generating new ideas, solving age-old problems, disaggregating and distributing work in new and innovative ways, and making better, more informed decisions about the future."

CultureLab: Cooperation, the secret weapon of our species

"RICHARD SENNETT'S Together is the second in a planned trilogy of books about "the skills people need to sustain everyday life". The first instalment, The Craftsman, proposed and explored the notion of an innate human impulse to do things well. Together is about the craftsmanship of cooperation.

Sennett, a sociologist, worries that humans suffer from a deeply ingrained tribalism that "couples solidarity with others like yourself to aggression against those who differ". "
