KNOWLEDGE MUSINGS [Workflow] Putting the I back in IT
| FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 2008
Of course, IT vendors will say that the technology can take many of these decisions out of the users hands, with auto-tagging of content with metadata and built-in workflow. Ever since knowledge management took off, organisations have looked to IT to provide a 'silver bullet'. All along I've stressed the need to put back the I (Information) into IT. Now a recent report from TFPL and Cap Gemini (see the Information Opportuntity Report ) says the same thing in a slightly different way.

HAROLD JARCHE [Workflow] Agility through collaboration
| MONDAY, AUGUST 9, 2010
In short, tying back to my post on collaboratively designing job aids, I think we need to be collaboratively designing workflows. Instead of factory-style production teams, agile programming uses far fewer, but better, programmers. The principles of communicating, focusi ng on simplicity, releasing often and testing often are also applicable to developing good instructional programs. Does instructional systems design (ISD) need more agility ?

Bolting anything on to the workflow just shows what it really is: an impediment to work. John Stepper describes his recent experiences in discussing working out loud in Berlin. The recommendations are those many of us are familiar with: Make it simple. Just changing someone’s home page can make the platform seem much more accessible. And curated suggestions of people, groups, and content relevant to a person’s division and location make the value more apparent. Start small.
HAROLD JARCHE [Workflow] So you (still) want to be an elearning consultant?
| MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2011
Working smarter in the 21st century requires the integration of learning into the workflow. Tweet Last week I commented that many people in the “learning” field are too absorbed in their own interests and not the businesses they are supporting. This has become a necessity due to the increased complexity facing today’s networked business. Ericsson’s video, On the Brink , provides a good overview of this emerging networked society.

Until software researcher, Ward Cunningham, invented the concept of a Wiki in 1995, all major knowledge management systems required that administrators begin by designing information taxonomies and content approval workflows.

It can’t be managed and controlled in the way discrete training and learning injections into the workflow can be. Thank Goodness It’s Monday! This is my second TGIM post. Mondays for freelancers mean new opportunities. Weekends are often times to get work done when it’s quiet. Mondays are good days to take a day to reflect, as clients are usually busy going through their inboxes and catching up. So happy Monday to everyone.

That it’s not just about taking people away from work and doing things to them before sending them back, but facilitating productive engagement and interaction throughout the workflow. One of my arguments for the L&D revolution is the role that L&D could be playing. I believe that if L&D were truly enabling optimal execution as well as facilitating continual innovation (read: learning), then they’d be as critical to the organization as IT.

” His point is that it would drive people to more workflow learning, more social and shared learning, etc. The other day, I was wondering about the possibilities of removing mandatory courses.

Applications that are not designed around the user’s workflow have to explain their conceptual model while they are being used: “where things are stored, how to make changes, who to send things to. Each step of a workflow is subject to delays and distractions. It is an honest question: how smart are your users? The answer may surprise you: it doesn’t matter.
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] 3 keys to dispersed team success
| TUESDAY, JULY 5, 2011
Despite the proliferation of options for communication, the way workflow, responsibilities, and collaboration are managed in this scenario can be quite different from on-site or partially dispersed teams. So as you’re planning workflow, milestones, and deliverables, consider whether your dispersed team will be working exclusively on this project, or on others at the same time. It’s one thing to work in a team with one or two off-site members.
HAROLD JARCHE [Workflow] Is management on the table?
| SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2012
That may mean reducing the number of managers; empowering people who are customer-facing; or significantly opening up the workflow and making it more transparent. Tweet As you soon as you try to address a problem, it gets more complicated, because that’s what conventional management does; I wrote last week in Managing collaboration , and Paul Chepolis commented: I couldn’t agree more. How many times has this occurred with leadership teams and organizational leaders.

And the iMac has the power to make mutli-display workflows very smooth, even in cases where you might require a lot of muscle. Even my stock entry-level 27-inch model at $1,699 seems to be able to handle whatever I can throw at it, and hasn’t yet choked up the way my old iMac had a tendency to do under the heavy crush of tabs and apps left open for days that makes up my usual workflow.

| THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2010
This typically is formal learning, but can be delivering performance support tools in the workflow as well as creating access to social media in ways that match the way the learner is thinking about it. The cry used to be “content is king. Then it became “well then, context must be emperor. Well, I want to tell you that Experience Rules. Here’s the deal.

First, I followed my own advice and mapped out my business workflow. I write about Enterprise 2.0 for several blogs, including this one, but I am an enterprise of one so many of the tools do not apply to me. However, there are many that do seem useful.

The workflow and access restrictions are there. Interesting post by Vic Uzumeri where he responds to a question that I asked him. I'm going to also address the broader concept he raises about Work Networking.
