I don’t put much stock in lists and ‘best of …’ rankings as they rarely tell you the methodology behind the system. When Antonio Santo ( @akwyz ) shared a list of the top 50 influencers on ‘the future of work’, I asked about the methodology. Vishal Mishra ( @vmishRRa ), CEO of Right Relevance, kindly obliged.

    We find that working in teams, sharing and annotating our work, and developing learning and personal knowledge mastery skills all contribute. Just what is the Future of Work about ? Is it about new technology, or is it about how we work with people? We’re seeing amazing new technologies: collaboration platforms, analytics, and deep learning. We’re also hearing about new work practices such as teams , working (or reflecting ) out loud, and more. Which is it?

    [Knowledge] filter failure is not acceptable
    The challenge for any organization dependent on knowledge is to ensure that implicit knowledge from those closest to customers and the external world informs the explicit knowledge that is shared throughout the company. Knowledge flow has to continuously become knowledge stock. Individuals practising personal knowledge mastery have to be an intrinsic part of organizational knowledge management. Fake news. PR hype. Content marketing. Advertorials.

    [Knowledge] A Bad Tart
    We need to put learners into situations requiring applying the knowledge to make decisions. If you’re putting your energy into finding gratuitous themes to wrap around knowledge recitation instead of making intrinsically meaningful contexts for knowledge application , you’re wasting time and money. PBL is ok when rote knowledge has to be drilled, or after you’ve done good practice design. Good learning requires a basis for intrinsic interest.

    [Knowledge] The Hidden Knowledge Problem in Organizations
    Having had the opportunity to observe many conversations in organizations, I have come to understand that the greatest knowledge deficit in organizations is not the lack of sharing nor is it poorly designed repositories. When fear exists, critical knowledge is lost and serious problems remain hidden. Fortunately, along with the knowledge demands made by these critical shifts, has come a richer understanding of how to access this hidden knowledge ( Edmondson , Kegan , Turco ).

Professor Gobinda Chowdhury (Northumbria University) presented a keynote on an interactive data seeking and retrieval model. He started by talking about the pressures and rule changing that goes on the research field.
