    [Learning, Practice] Expert Level Answers via Social Networks
    I've been really enjoying the discussion around Does Deliberative Practice Lead to Quick Proficiency? In fact, Sue Waters said in a comment that being a Connector (well connected and knowing how to leverage those connections) is really what it's all about: I don't need to know the answers because my personal learning network is so extensive, and extremely diverse, that I know who can help me with the answer.

    However, only 16 percent make it a regular practice to intentionally offer these opportunities for employee development, suggesting a missed opportunity to boost learning in a way that offers substantial benefits. The news release below makes an excellent point: aligning external volunteer programs with internal training and professional development activities can be very synergistic with strategic talent initiatives.

    It was truly an amazing professional development experience, and by the end of the week, my head was so full of ideas that I was practically chomping at the bit to get back to work (not what I usually feel when I enjoy a conference). I learned so much that will benefit me directly in my work, helping me to be a better manager, coordinator, seller of ideas, and project manager. I will treasure the experience and look forward to putting much of what I learned into practice

    [Learning, Practice] Badgeville Integrates with IBM Connections
    As I know from personal experience, cross-group communication is essential in this environment to share best practices. But how do you change 20 years of learned communication behavior? For example, sales best practices are often hard to get out of busy sales people, thought it’s a common goal of social software platforms to capture it. This sales best practices example is one of the ways that Badgeville integrates with IBM Connections.

    Although in principle this is a good thing, in practice what happens is that managers realize at the last minute that theyre supposed to be doing staff training at certain times during the year, so they run around trying to find a topic and a trainer to satisfy the requirement. And they must be able to incorporate what staff are learning into the daily work of staff.

    You start by setting up a blog (which becomes your learning journal for the rest of the journey), you venture into Flickr and social tagging, setting up RSS feeds and blog readers, application sharing, wikis, and podcasting among other things. Part of the programme is that you set up your blog/learning journal within a community of fellows, however, so my guess is it would be most effective if you are following this journey with compatriots to share the insights, learnings and questions.

    Level 2 Develop localized and repeatable practices, move to next level through applied knowledge. Level 5 Innovate, continuously improving practices. The well-established path from "data to information to knowledge to wisdom," is giving way to the new model of "sense, respond, learn, adapt" through new applications of technology (use of cell phones and even networked cars (like BMWs) to develop new capabilities in new, unexpected ways).

    [Learning, Practice] Enterprise 2.0 Isn’t a Checklist
    When speaking at national Data Warehousing conferences years ago I was surprised by two clear patterns: Each year, over 50% of the people in attendance were new to the field and often were there because they’d ‘inherited’ responsibility for a data warehousing initiative, but knew nothing about the industry or the practices. This appears to be indicative of all emerging disciplines/practices. initiatives are the antithesis of typical IT practices.

    As an introvert myself, I had to agree and pointed out in a comment on her post that I think that the entire practice of blogging, as well as other online social media tools have really been a Godsend for introverts in terms of providing them with a platform for equal expression with the extroverts who seem to rule the "real world." I'd love to know what others think though - and how we can learn from each other's experiences.

    By being active, you can also enable practice opportunities such as simulations, scenarios, and games.

    Indeed, the lack of reference to external resources belies the wider community of thinking and practice around intranets, within which James is an influential thoughtleader. More varied references would help to legitimate this book as sitting at the centre of broadly validated thought and practice, and not simply an individual’s point of view. I am increasingly of the opinion that no knowledge management effort can avoid the intranet.
