CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] The meta-program
| THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018
I think things like the ability to research questions, design and run experiments, communicate results, collaborate, ask and answer questions in ways that work, and more. A couple of weeks ago, I posited what I thought might make the basis for a sustainable degree program. That is, one that prepares students for a world with increasing change. In it I talked about the domains that I thought would provide a solid basis, but I did not talk about something else important.
HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] retrieving gender balance
| THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018
The network era workplace requires collaboration and cooperation because complex problems cannot be solved alone.

HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] working smarter case study
| FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2018
In 2010/2011 Jay Cross and I worked worked with a corporate university of a large US company with the objective to cultivate a fully engaged, high performing workforce through rapid, collaborative, informal, self-directed learning. The aim was for employees to learn fast enough to keep up with the demands of their jobs and grow into experts in their field.
BOXES AND ARROWS [Collaboration] Case Study: How to Build a Digital User Experience Monitoring System
| TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2018
It was critical to collaborate on these goals with stakeholders; not only did we need their support to implement our system, we also needed stakeholder alignment. Most software user experience and product management teams have similar questions: How do users feel about our products? How is our product experience changing over time? How do users feel about a recent change we’ve made in the product?
CONVERSATION MATTERS [Collaboration] The Metaphor That Leads Organizations Astray
| FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2018
When a problem arises between two people the “argument as war” metaphor precludes our consideration of collaboration or of considering the other’s perspective. The metaphors we use when we talk about work have an impact on how work is designed in organizations. The predominant metaphor is “labor as a resource” as in Human Resources. That metaphor results in those who design how organizations function limiting their conception of workers as a means to an end.

CONVERSATION MATTERS [Collaboration] The Central Challenge of Collaboration
| TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2018
. The following is from a review of Adam Kahane 's new book "Collaborating with the Enemy: How to work with people you don't agree with or like or trust." Kahane explains that collaborating is increasingly difficult and increasingly necessary. The enemyfying syndrome that I have observed and enacted is at the heart of the challenge of collaboration. In politics and at work and at home, collaboration is both necessary and difficult.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Developing Decisions
| WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 2018
Collaboration in learning is second best to collaboration in problem-solving. I mentioned in yesterday’s post that one thing I do in getting objectives is focus on decisions. And, simple ones will get automated; we can train AI to handle these. What will make the difference between ordinary and extraordinary organizations is the ability to make decisions in this new VUCA environment (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous).
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.”

Secondly let’s align towards a common goal of a decentralized economy based on collaboration (not competition), equal opportunity, open participation and shared prosperity.” Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds. US Net Neutrality Debacle will Impact People in Canada.
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.

HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] self-managing for complexity
| WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2017
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?

HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] bias thwarts innovation
| 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.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] #AECT17 Conference Contributions
| THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2017
These included three thing: heuristics, tools, and collaboration. In short, I suggest that while collaboration is good, many corporate situations want to minimize staff. Consequently, I suggest identifying those critical points where collaboration will be useful. So, at the recent AECT 2017 conference, I participated in three ways that are worth noting.
HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] professional learner’s toolkit
| WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2017
Communication & Collaboration : Zoom for meetings and video conferencing is my preferred platform and I have a Pro account which is well worth the $15/month price. Jane Hart describes a Modern Professional Learner’s Toolkit as having several components: resources, networks, devices, etc. I have used Jane’s framework to look at my own practice. Browser & Search Engine: I use three browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and two search engines ( StartPage & DuckDuckGo ).

Authentic learning is very much collaborative problem-solving. Thomas Reeves opened the third day of the AECT conference with an engaging keynote that used the value of conation to drive the argument for Authentic Learning. Conation is the component of cognition that consists of your intent to learn, and is under-considered. He used the challenges from robots/AI to motivate the argument.

- [Collaboration] Saying goodbye to the Library Success Wiki
A whole bunch of other collaboration and CMS-type tools didn’t exist. This should give people time to move information important to them to other collaboration tools and for a knight in shining armor who wants the hassle of managing the wiki themselves to emerge. 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
| WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2017
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?
- [Collaboration] In Digital Transformation, The Art-of-the-Possible and Average Practice Are Diverging
This kind of cross-entity learning primary comes in three forms, though there are numerous ways to do it: Industry consortiums, which we’ve long had, as well as more digital versions of consortiums such as collaborative multi-organizational Networks of Excellence and of course, the aforementioned Global Solution Networks. 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.

Collaboration was a key feature of library space. The data did not show how people moved through the space, but showed both collaboration, and people working individually. Danuta is dean of libraries and professor at the college of computing and informatics at Drexel University, USA. She proposed 3 ideas: the library as the learners' workplace; the relationship between space and learning is an emerging area of study; libraries are prime examples of this phenomenon.

CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Developing L&D
| 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.

So what is a good basis for finding ways to support people in the moment and develop them over time? We want to look to what research and theory tell us.

This has led to more use of materials in exhibitions, collaborative projects, digitisation etc. I am liveblogging this from the mini-conference on Models for Copyright Education in Information Literacy Programs at the 2017 World Library and Information Conference in Wroclaw, Poland. It was held in the Dolnośląska Szkoła Wyższa (University of Lower Silesia).
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Innovative Work Spaces
| TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2017
Time alone, time with colleagues, time collaborating. I recently read that Apple’s new office plan is receiving bad press. This surprises me, given that Apple usually has their handle on the latest in ideas. Yet, upon investigation, it’s clear that they appear to not be particularly innovative in their approach to work spaces. Here’s why. The report I saw says that Apple is intending to use an open office plan.

Today’s networks can be of any size, any form, and can effortlessly enable us to come together en masse and collaborate for purposes of creating incalculable human value — many of which were hitherto simply impossible, and all at a cost that relentlessly falls towards zero.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] L&D Tuneup
| TUESDAY, AUGUST 8, 2017
People need to develop those communication and collaboration, but it won’t come from classes, but from coaching and more. In my youth, owing to my father’s tutelage and my desire for wheels, I learned how to work on cars. While not the master he was, I could rebuild a carburetor, gap points and sparkplugs, as well as adjust the timing. In short, I could do a tuneup on the car. And I think that’s what Learning & Development (L&D) needs, a tuneup.

THEORIA CUM PRAXI [Collaboration] Remote work – some thoughts
| SUNDAY, JULY 30, 2017
Even though I don’t physically see or interact with my team or my customers very often (almost never), the evolution of social collaboration tools over the past 10 years has made it easier than ever to connect and execute projects at a distance. Jim and I had worked together off and on for nearly five years on this and other projects, and of course collaborated on crafting the talk and the slides.
CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] What is the Future of Work?
| TUESDAY, JULY 25, 2017
We’re seeing amazing new technologies: collaboration platforms, analytics, and deep learning. We now work digitally, communicating and collaborating. Just what is the Future of Work about ? Is it about new technology, or is it about how we work with people? We’re also hearing about new work practices such as teams , working (or reflecting ) out loud, and more. Which is it? And/or how do they relate? It’s very clear technology is changing the way we work.

From viewing to doing: connect, collaborate, create and do. Intranets2017 was three weeks ago, and we’ve now caught back up on some sleep. We had our best numbers yet, and the energy was running high from the first morning to the social evening, right through to the final informal drinks. A huge thanks to our wonderful speakers, who hailed from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, and the USA.
COLUMN TWO [Collaboration] Join us at the Digital Workplace Conference in Sydney (August 23-24)
| THURSDAY, JULY 6, 2017
Bigger than intranets or collaboration tools, but rather hard to define. Just a year or two ago, the phrase “digital workplace” seemed a bit out of place. How much has changed! Digital workplace is now well-defined as a term , and there’s a real sense that it’s helping to reshape thinking about helping staff get work done. So we’re excited to be presenting at the upcoming Digital Workplace Conference , coming to Sydney on 23-24 August 2017.
COLUMN TWO [Collaboration] Three must-do times to get your intranet reviewed
| TUESDAY, JULY 4, 2017
Perhaps it’s collaboration and social tools, search, navigation or governance. Intranets are complex pieces of machinery, with many moving parts. Is the intranet working well? Should it be providing additional features or functionality? It can be hard to tell. An expert review of the intranet provides answer these questions, shining a bright light on the intranet’s strengths and weaknesses. The key question is then: when should I commission a review of my intranet?

However, there did appear to be a lack of real collaboration between librarian and faculty. The value of "embedded" librarianship was seen as it being user-oriented, with closer collaboration, with sometimes even physical embedding within a department.

HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] look for disconfirming data
| SATURDAY, JUNE 24, 2017
Adam Kahane hosted a webcast this week to discuss his new book, Collaborating with the Enemy. Kahane opened the session with an observation from his research that “collaboration is often difficult and painful and doesn’t work”. He described collaboration as the fourth option, usually after these three are discarded: adapt, exit, and force. It is often when forcing our position is not possible that we realize we must collaborate.

HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] cities as learning platforms
| MONDAY, JUNE 12, 2017
Learning would be collaborative and experiential, encouraging self-evaluation and self-motivation as the norms. In 2008, CEO’s for Cities recommended a more inclusive way of supporting learning in the community. Basically, the city becomes the learning platform, not just for schooling but for other community support activities, such as policing and heath care.

You could also collaborate with the faculty member to have students reflect later on what they learned in your session that was useful in completing the assignment and how they’ve grown as a researcher over the course of the class. I have not used Poll Everywhere, but I have used Padlet , which is somewhat similar in that all students can anonymously post content to a collaborative whiteboard.
HAROLD JARCHE [Collaboration] organizing for the network era

willing cooperation” means lessening the emphasis on teamwork and collaboration and encouraging wider cooperation. In my last post I noted that many organizations today are nothing more than attractive prisons. The current organizational tyranny was a response to a linear, print-based world. These organizations are artifacts of a time when information was scarce and hard to share, and when connections with others were difficult to make and required command and control.

CLARK QUINN [Collaboration] Grappling with Groups
| WEDNESDAY, MAY 24, 2017
If they’re working in a collaborative environment that tracks contributions via versioning or some other way, then there’s a trail of work that can be scrutinized. I’m a fan of the power of social learning. When people get together (and the process is managed right), the outcomes of a negotiated understanding can be powerful. However, in designing learning, working in groups has some real negative perceptions and realities. The open question is: what to do?

CONVERSATION MATTERS [Collaboration] Using Teams to Solve Hard Problems: A Book Review of Collaborative Intelligence By Richard Hackman

The right mix includes 1) task expertise, 2) the ability to work collaboratively with others, while keeping the team 3) as small and 4) as diverse as possible. In terms of the second criteria, being able to work collaboratively with others, Hackman notes, “Even a single member who is a ‘team destroyer,’ someone whose behavior is egregiously disruptive and destructive, can cause a team to fail.”

For example, organizations have widely ( 25% of all orgs by some estimates) begun using cross-silo collaboration, such as devops, to break down the long-standing sclerosis that has built up through the accumulation of technology in the proverbial Legacy Mountain. What is the most important factor in realizing technology change today? Is it having the right technology or tools? Perhaps leadership support, as that is cited by so many (including myself) as a top success factor.

A multi-faceted approach to enterprise collaboration. Group collaboration is supported through practices like narrating your work.

The possibilities in virtual worlds to collaboratively create in 3D I still think is potentially cool, but even as the technology limitations come down, the cognitive limitations remain. In my inbox was an announcement about a new white paper with the intriguing title Human Learning is About to Change Forever. So naturally I gave up my personal details to download a copy.
