    [Knowledge, Knowledge Work] An unexpected side effect of remote work: Denser communities
    Will the rise of remote work mean we’re more spread out or more densely packed together? Obviously the latter, you could argue, pointing to the fact that logging in to work via the web allows colleagues to be spread from Abu Dhabi to Austin. But there is a case to be made that when the trend towards remote work is far enough along, the result will be denser communities of workers. Remote work won’t eliminate this need.

    [Knowledge, Knowledge Work] Leadership for the Network Era
    Leadership training usually does not work. Trying to directly shape behaviour can work when the task to be done is straight-forward, time is of the essence, and the learner is ready. For complex behaviours like leadership, consisting of several skills, modelling may be best, as there is much implicit knowledge to be learned, which takes time. But the valued work in the enterprise is shifting, as it increases in variety and decreases in standardization.

    A new model for work is required. They work well when information flows mostly in one direction: down. In matrix management people have more than one reporting line and often work across business units. While a certain amount of hierarchy may be necessary to get specific project work done, networks function best when each node can choose with whom and when it connects. The team, as a work vehicle, is outdated. Knowledge-sharing. Hierarchies.

    In most cases our current models for managing people and supporting their knowledge-sharing are ineffective. Knowledge workers today need to connect with others to co-solve problems but the best tools to do this are often outside the enterprise. Sharing tacit knowledge in this way is becoming an essential component of knowledge work. In the network era, learning and working are tightly interconnected. The first step is get everyone working out loud.

    The traditional model of collaborative knowledge is based on the type of knowledge (moving from tangible to intangible, explicit to tacit) and the place of collaboration (moving from the individual to the group to the organization). The assumption is that knowledge within an organization is housed and can be captured for use. The collaborative writing process has the potential to make the knowledge creation and transfer process more transparent to group members.

    [Knowledge, Knowledge Work] Skills for Learning Professionals…Part 2
    I like your meta skills, but … I was hoping that you would provide insight into the core skills and knowledge around communities and networks that learning professionals should have? As you know, I strongly believe that in the future all knowledge workers will need the ability to effectively participate in communities and navigate networks in order to perform their work.

    [Knowledge, Knowledge Work] Explicit work (#owork)
    There is more discussion bouncing around the idea of knowledge work and visibility, mostly collected by Jim McGee in Observable work - more on knowledge work visibility (#owork). The group has decided this is called "observable work." I've used "explicit" in my title simply to reference the long-running discussion of explicit-implicit-tacit in the knowledge management world. Who else benefits if your work is more observable?

    Tweet The notion that work is changing and that free agent knowledge workers will dominate the new economy was something I discussed in my Master’s thesis, published in 1998. I’ve been talking about free agents as the future of work on this blog almost since I started it. I wrote that free agents are the future of work in 2004 when I noticed that it was getting much easier to be a free agent. Only working seven days a week. Books Communities Work

    The short version in this post describes blogging practices of knowledge workers in respect to specific parts of the framework below that provides a view on what knowledge work entails. The open-ended and public nature of weblogs does not necessarily makes them a good tool to work directly on tasks, so in most cases weblogs are used for enabling work, rather than doing it. Choosing, managing and ‘working around’ tools is part of blogging.

    New Skills for Knowledge Workers. On the work literacy blog, Tony Karrer posted a framework, that I was not really satisfied with. Im not sure I acheived better as much as different or something that is closer to what I see are the new skills needed for knowledge workers. Some of this is based on work that I have been doing in distance learning over the last 4 years. Can this framework be used to identify types of organizations, knowledge work, personalities, or tasks?

    As we all know, technology is changing the way that many people work. At the same time, new software is enabling new ways to collaborate and new styles of work; there’s now a proliferation of tools, from simple hosted filesharing apps to complex integrated enterprise social networking tools. The array of choices in this “work platform&# space can be bewildering, especially as many of them are very similar.

    Projects and knowledge work need even more. Linking back to Esko’s contention that leadership “should be about providing a platform for discussing the meaning of work and the collective identity”, I think that one of the big learnings in making the transition from traditional manufacturing to the ” learning factory” is the emergence of relationships as a key lever in making the transition to new ways of working.

    What’s important for managers is that this also works the other way around. This works well for mechanical things, like buildings, watches and Quattro Stagioni pizzas. But it doesn’t work for complex systems, like brains, software development teams, and the local pizzeria. We lose it if we try to micro-manage knowledge work. Business must be more social the more complex the work and the greater the need for collaboration.

    If we are going to encourage people to improve their work - and the work of those around them - we have to acknowledge that not every brilliant idea can be implemented. We just don't have the time in a day to do or try everything that might work. What might we request from the steps before or after our work to smooth the flow for us. These ideas apply to knowledge work just as much as they apply to physical work.

    Our formal learning approaches too often don’t follow how our brains really work. It’s part of what my colleague Harold Jarche talks about when saying “work is learning and learning is work”, the notion that as organizations start empowering workers to adapt to the increasing complexity, there will be no difference between work and learning, and we’ll have to move away from the ‘event’ model of learning and start integrating learning more closely into our activities.
