Collective Intelligence: A Goal for HR

Collective Intelligence: A Goal for HR | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

There’s a new buzz phrase in town, and HR should pay close attention to it. Collective intelligence. There are many definitions, but it’s roughly defined as the “all of us are smarter than any of us” principle. Collective intelligence is more than consensus decision-making or crowdsourced ideas. As one writer put it: The wisdom of crowds comes not from the consensus decision of the group, but from the aggregation of the ideas/thoughts/decisions of each individual in the group. There has been a lot of research on the topic lately, as everyone is trying to unlock the key to creating those teams that produce extraordinary results. One study clarified that the collective intelligence has little to do with a team’s individuals’ intelligence. They found three factors that impacted the collective intelligence: > Social perceptiveness or social intelligence of group members > Degree of equal participation of group members > High communication levels amongst members This new research is critical for HR, as they seek to tap into the secret sauce that makes a high-performing team. Individuals, even the smartest or most creative, who work in a siloed environment just can’t compare to a collaborative team, working together to come up with something better than they could alone. A distant cousin of collective intelligence (but often confused with it) is institutional knowledge. This is another concern for HR, as today’s job hoppers and short-tenure employees move on quickly, and the long-term Baby Boomers are retiring. Both take critical institutional knowledge about an organization with them, leaving teams to have to constantly reinvent the wheel. A stable team of dynamic individuals must be built and maintained, so that the organization can benefit from their collective intelligence, and the insights they gain and strategies they implement will become part of the body of institutional knowledge of the organization. A constant revolving door of employees is never good for HR. This is why engagement and retention are key. Because it’s the people, the employees, that are the organization. Your organization can go anywhere with the right team, because all of us are smarter than any of us.

This is cool. I do not like, however, that there is no "about" or other information on the company/project whatever it is.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.
