Notes from Twitter and Microblogging – part 3. 10 April

Uses and risks of micro-blogging in organisations by Soureh Latif Shabgahi from Sheffield University The research focused on SMEs as these may be more receptive to business improvement interventions. However, initial research found larger organisations as early adopters of enterprise micro-bloggers (EMB). Found little research on EMB, especially in the UK. Research has tended to focus on communications […]

Social Learning Business (?) linkage [03092012]

A few interesting links and snippets: New free 27-page book from @jaycross – Learning is Business – a short, succinct and good read A good summary here on communities of practice in organisations-as-networks – ie, social business (not social enterprise and without getting all humpty dumpty, I enjoyed this: Take ‘social business’, a term I […]

More monkeys with typewriters

I completed Jemima Gibbon‘s book Monkeys with Typewriters just before Christmas. As I mentioned in my comments on the first chapter here, I enjoyed the span of sources drawn on such as Arie de Geus and his book, The Living Company to de Moivre on distribution curves to Charles Darwin. As such, I found the […]

Monkeys with typewriters

I’ve received mt copy of Monkeys with Typewriters by Jemima Gibbons. The book launch event has a good write-up here. I’ve only read the first chapter so far but find the writing style really engaging – I could have stayed up and read a whole lot more …. What I particularly appreciated was the discussion […]

roundup of interesting stuff: edupunk and social business

More on edupunk/ hacking the education “system” here Although I think there is a conflation of two issues here: (a) the brand recognition and market value of possessing a recognised degree (preferably from a prestigious university and (b) the power of the www to enable lifelong learning. So one is concerned with the confirmation that […]

informality 2.0

A very interesting post from Dan Pontefract on the integration of corporate learning and development and enterprise 2.0 in to learnerprise 2.0. Obviously, the concept needs further development but makes a useful point that too much L&D provision is focused on formalised learning and this is exacerbated in the context of much e-learning which relies […]

riding the Google Wave

… well technically more like watching someone else ride the Wave. Anyway, a very clear and helpful post on Google Wave from Dion Hinchcliffe here. The potential of Wave in terms as [tacit/ social] knowledge ‘management’, collaboration and learning is immense [or will be a big disappointment – assuming, of course, that organisations have the […]

web/ enterprise 2.0 – mindset and culture

Interesting post from Penny Edwards here on the recognition that enterprise 2.0 adoption is a mind-set, and therefore, cultural, issue rather than a technology one. In particular, to be truly effective, it requires a different conceptualisation of management as being something focused on motivation, empowerment, support and co-ordination rather than organising, controlling, commanding and (possibly) […]

change management and social media

An interesting post from Leandro Herrero on change in organisations and the use of social media. He states: I was interviewed recently by Sean Dodson at The Guardian and we got talking about social media as a disruptive technology. I hadn’t given the subject much thought at the time, but I have done since. I […]

web 2.0 [links]

A new report has been published by the CIPD on web 2.0 in organisations/ enterprise 2.0 – the download is available here (at least to members anyway). The research is largely empirical and coming from a management innovation slant (as the researchers are from the Management Lab at London Business School). No surprises in the […]
