CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Listening
| TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2018
When working a strategy session with clients, I seed the discussion before hand with the challenges and background material, and ask that everyone think on their own before we begin collaboration. Listening, as I mentioned, in this case to Guy Wallace. As one of the premier promoters of evidence-based design, he responded to my question about what to post on with: Any “How Tos” using methods, tools and techniques that you’ve found to work in L&D and Performance Improvement.
HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] a vision for learning
| SUNDAY, JANUARY 14, 2018
People in a network era learning organisation need more than training: they need ongoing, real-time, constantly-changing, collaborative, support. Harvard Business Review described The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge, as one of the seminal management books of the previous 75 years. The five disciplines necessary for a learning organisation are: Personal Mastery. Mental Models. Shared Vision. Team Learning. Systems Thinking (which integrates the other four).
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] And Listen
| WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 2018
And so, listening is an important part of communicating and collaborating. Listening is a vital skill. It’s something that made my mother very popular, because she listened, remembered, and asked about whatever you said the next time you saw her. She cared, and it showed. I wish I was as good a listener! But it’s critical to really listen (or as some have it, not just listen, but hear ). It’s part of a skillset necessary to innovate.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Let’s talk
| TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2018
Indeed, my colleague Harold Jarche points to the book Collaborating with the Enemy and argues that’s a good thing. “Conversations are the stem cells of learning.” ” – Jay Cross. I recently read something that intrigued me. I couldn’t find it again, so I’ll paraphrase the message. As context, the author was talking about how someone with a different world view was opining about the views of the author.
HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] collaborating with the enemy
| SUNDAY, JANUARY 7, 2018
Collaborating with the Enemy by Adam Kahane gives a framework of how to work with people you don’t agree with, like, or trust. Kahane developed it through his years of conducting collaboration workshops such as the Mont Fleur sessions to prepare for a post-apartheid South Africa. If they can change the situation but cannot effect change unilaterally, then it is possible that conventional collaboration can work, but only if the change can be controlled.

CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] 2018 Trajectories
| WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 3, 2018
The cognitive perspective suggests everything from training & performance support, through facilitating communication and collaboration, to culture. Given my reflections on the past year, it’s worth thinking about the implications. What trajectories can we expect if the trends are extended? These are not predictions (as has been said, “never predict anything, particularly the future”).
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Expertise
| THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2017
The key is working collaboratively and transparently. Expertise is an elusive thing. It comes from years of experience in a field. However, it turns out that it doesn’t just accumulate. You need very specific practice and/or useful feedback to develop it. And the more expertise one has, the better you are able to apply it to situations. Which has implications for what you do and when and how you do it. Expertise is valuable.
HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] looking to the past for the future
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2017
The conclusion they came to from this data was that the brain, the neurological system, and our hormonal systems have had 90,000 years of programming us for talk and collaboration, and only 10,000 years for competition and fighting.” “Pass on what you have learned. Strength, mastery. But weakness, folly, failure also. Yes, failure most of all. The greatest teacher, failure is. Luke, we are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters.”

CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Higher Ed & Job Skills?
| WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2017
You might use a presentation tool, a writing tool, or a spreadsheet, maybe even collaboratively, but it’s not typically tied to external resources and data. I sat in on a twitter chat yesterday, #DLNChat, that is a higher ed tech focused group (run by EdSurge ). The topic was the link between higher ed and job skills, and I was a wee bit cynical. While I think there are great possibilities, the current state of the art leaves a lot to be desired.

Even in work environments where workers have some flexibility many are still constrained with a job description, meaning that someone in marketing cannot decide to collaborate with another person in human resources, without getting special permission through a circuitous chain of command. “What processes will be effective in helping people to unlearn the disposition or stance that made them successful in the ordered domains of Cynefin?

| WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2017
The network era workplace requires collaboration and cooperation because complex problems cannot be solved alone. My recent blog post on our future is networked and feminine has had more online attention than any other post I have written in the past two years. I was even asked to change the title, something that has never happened before. For me, the topic is not new, and I have presented these ideas to live audiences many times.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] My Professional Learner’s Toolkit
| TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2017
A range of communication and collaboration tools : I use Google Drive to collaborate on representations. My colleague, Harold Jarche, recently posted about his professional learning toolkit, reflecting our colleague Jane Hart’s post about a Modern Learner’s Toolkit. It’s a different cut through the top 10 tools. So I thought I’d share mine, and my reflections. Favorite browser and search engine : I use Safari and Google, by default.

A whole bunch of other collaboration and CMS-type tools didn’t exist.

In July 2005, on the heels of the successful ALA Annual 2005 Wiki, I developed the Library Success Wiki. Here’s what I said about it then : “I would like this wiki to be a one-stop-shop for inspiration.

BOXES AND ARROWS [Collaboration] How to Use Gamification in Mobile App Onboarding
| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2017
Interactivity causes onboarding to seem more like a collaboration than a boring tutorial, and if done right, it can make users feel as if their input really counts. Playing games is a human impulse. People get a kick out of competing, collecting things, and finishing tasks. You can apply game design elements to anything, which is called gamification. Mobile app onboarding is a useful place for a touch of competition or goal-setting.
HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] distributing power for the network era
| SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2017
Networks also enable work to be done cooperatively, as opposed to collaboratively in institutions or competitive markets. A certain amount of command and control, exercised through a hierarchy is often necessary to get work done. I suggest temporary, negotiated hierarchies so that teams can form and re-form depending on what needs to be done. Reorganization can be inherent in the enterprise structure and not a cataclysmic event that happens only when management systems fail.
INFORMATION WANTS TO BE FREE [Collaboration] The ballad of the sad instruction librarian

In response to what Nick Schiller tweeted, my collaborator and friend Lisa Hinchliffe wrote: I wish librs would stop hiring ppl to teach it aren't good at teaching. I have instructors who really collaborate with me around determining the shape of library support for their classes. Instructors often underestimate librarians, seeing them more as service providers who demo databases rather than as instructors, experts, or collaborators.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Radical Coherency
| WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2017
Where people are communicating and collaborating in ways that apply best principles in an way that integrates them into an aligned whole that’s greater than the sum of the parts. Tied to my last post about insufficient approaches, I was thinking again about the Coherent Organization . Coherency is powerful, but it could be a limiting metaphor. So I want to explore it a bit further. First, coherency is powerful. Lasers, for example, are just light, the same as comes from your lightbulbs.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Simple Insufficiency
| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2017
PKM, WoL (SyW), 70:20:10, teaming, collaborating and communicating, etc, are all elements, but they need to be tied together. As things get more complex, organizations are looking to get more agile. And they’re looking at a wide variety of approaches in different areas. It can be agile, digital transformation, design thinking, and more. And, by and large, these are all good things. And all of them are quite simply insufficient. Why do I suggest this insufficiency?

From my experience in the field of mass collaboration, my view is that it’s almost certainly the latter.

Collaboration was really important, and the team made best use of expertise from across the university. Fabian Franke from Bamberg university library in Germany spoke about government information literacy at German universities and the role of the library in this. Information literacy has to fit into the digital strategy of the university. Librarians need new skills in order to be part of this digital strategy, and that this should be part of the curricula at library school.

INFORMATION LITERACY WEBLOG [Collaboration] Stephane Goldstein: information literacy and the future of work : Pam blogs from #ECIL2017
| TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2017
Stephane introduced some long term workplace trends, for example a trend for less hierarchical organisational structures, that work is becoming less routine and there is an increase in project work, meaning more collaborative and team work. A more optimistic vision of the future is that the workforce will be "ageless", "mindful", "intuitive" and "collaborative".

It also fitted in with what Goldstein characterised as a "rosy" view" of the workforce as ageless (meaning, you can work as long as you like without discrimination), mindful, collaborative and intuitive. From this: what are the information needs of these people, and how can the idea of collaborative information use and sharing be squared with this more precarious and isolated way of working.

| THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017
The idea is to address a particular tactical goal as part of a strategic plan, and to do so in ways that both embody and develop learning and a collaboration culture. In doing so, you’re having the team collaborate with digital tools (even if/while working F2F, but ideally you have a distributed team). Ultimately, you are developing both their skills on the process itself and on working together in collaborative ways.

The key question is then: when should I commission a review of my intranet?

It is often when forcing our position is not possible that we realize we must collaborate.
