ECOSYSTEM: Is the Concept Jive, Jargon or Justified?
Living in Learning
OCTOBER 16, 2014
One of the more recent buzzwords surfacing in our L&D lexicon is “Ecosystem”, and I see it as having more significance to a sustainable learning and performance strategy than acceptance. Why seek what you already have? Answer: It’s not really a question of having an ecosystem; the real question is – "Are you managing the one you have effectively and efficiently?”.

Is Multiple Activity Streams the Way Forward for Enterprise Platforms?
FEBRUARY 7, 2012
Before I move on let me briefly explain how Jive --whichpowers our social platform--works. Jive offers users the ability to customizetheir two activity streams--one stream reflects everything the user is Following on the platform and thisincludes people, places and content. The other reflects what the user is Tracking --and Jive makes a subtledistinction between " follow "and " track ". Some of it will get taken care of by smart, automatedfiltering options like Jive's Recommendation engine, which suggest contentbased on the user's prior activity on the platform.

6 Hot Graphic Design Trends for eLearning Gurus in 2015
JUNE 1, 2015
However, if this style does not jive with the rest of the material, don’t force it, as it comes across as hokey and disingenuous. A huge part of the eLearning experience is the visual aspect. That’s why a graphic designer is such an important part of any eLearning team. Flat Design. Monochromatic. Pixel Art. Skeuomorphism. Minimalism. Sketch.

experience behind the firewall. R/WW reports tonight that Jive Software is releasing Clearspace2.0 USAToday recently said that "Jive Software wants to be the Apple Computer of corporate social networks." Jive calls itself a "social productivity" service. I've been watching Clearspace as one of those Enterprise products that just might have that something special that finally brings the Web2.0 tonight. The service takes on Microsoft's Sharepoint with a feature set that looks like something many consumer software users would be envious of. Sweet!

MAY 18, 2012
And big hat tip to Sumeet Moghe of Thoughtworks for sharing his presentation at LSCon on implementing a social learning platform (they went with Jive). If you know me, you know I'm a bit of an extrovert and I crave social interaction. And, like most of us, I like to learn through collaboration and conversation. Ideally, while roasting marshmallows around a campfire.). So last month when I prepared for my LearnNow conference presentation on "Implementing Social Learning", I reached out to my social networks. Jane Bozarth's diigo pag e was another great resource.

Ridiculous research findings on informal learning
MAY 15, 2011
It’s hard to imagine informal learning not going along for the ride when a company embraces Jive or Chatter or Yammer or Socialcast or similar networking environments. An analyst reports that her company’s research finds that only 30% of U.S. companies spent money on informal learning tools or services last year. What an astounding finding! Just Jay

Ok, so have I gone off the edge of the hazy cosmic jive? I am a native Californian, after all, but I’m thinking that this makes real business sense. I think we can do this, and that the outputs will be better too, in all respects. No one says it’d be easy, but my suspicion is it’d be worthwhile. Noodling: I’ve been thinking about Working Smarter, a topic I took up over four years ago. Working smarter, of course, means recognizing how we really think, work, and learn, and aligning our processes and tools accordingly. But there’s another approach.
From “learning technologies” to “social technologies”
JUNE 14, 2012
These might be proprietary systems like Jive , Podio , Yammer , Socialcast , or open source software, like WordPress / Buddypress or Elgg.

Lurking is Not a Static State
JULY 20, 2011
The analytics told me that over 40% of the users are Active Users (a term Jive uses to describe all users who log in to consume content without necessarily interacting with the content in any manner). Lurking and its role in communities has been on the forefront of my mind for the past few days. They are lurking on the edge, consuming content. They are the free riders. Not really.

Content Curation: One More Role for an Enterprise Community Manager
DECEMBER 27, 2011
This in the context of a social business platform like Jive requires--among other things--consistent tagging, proper aggregation, enabling quick search options, providing guided navigations for frequently accessed pieces, and grouping of similar groups and content in an appropriate manner. Faced with the tsunami of information, we are all floundering to find our way to content that actually matters. From setting up filters--both of the automated and human variety--to trying to make sense of what we find, we are in a fix, so to speak. The scene within an enterprise is not much different.

And we want it launched as soon as possible.” ” B: “Ok.” Rather, it should be developing an e-learning strategy. Education? Please.

More employees are sharing knowledge through activity streams on platforms by IBM, SAP, Jive, Yammer, and Socialcast, to name a few. An effective suite of enterprise social tools can help organizations share knowledge, collaborate, and cooperate – connecting the work being done with the identification of new opportunities and ideas.

JANUARY 16, 2009
However, Element K has made substantial, progressive improvements to their LMS, most recently by building custom integrations between Jive Clearspace and KnowledgeHub, Element K’s LMS. Probably just three years ago, if you said Element K I would have immediately thought about off-the-shelf courseware. They announced this in October, 2008. Via email, I asked Sue Rodeman, VP., Platform Prod Management & Marketing, Element K about their social media capabilities. This is fueled by the various Web 2.0 Thanks to Sue, from a fellow upstate New Yorker! Generation21. GeoLearning.
Mentoring or Coaching: What’s Best for Your Company?
APRIL 10, 2014
Some enterprises have tried using social software such as Yammer or Jive to connect individuals, but without a formal mentoring or coaching structure, this approach is not sufficient to achieve measurable results. Mentoring and coaching strategies translate to better employee engagement and retention. But it pays to know the key differences between coaching and mentoring to implement an effective program. One of the major effects of the recession was a lack of investment in developing business skills for younger, midlevel workers. There is a difference between coaching and mentoring.

5 Questions to Ask When Setting up Communities
AUGUST 16, 2011
have mentioned in my earlier post here that we have launched an enterprise-wide collaboration platform powered by Jive. While the terms community management and community manager are more popular, I have never found them very comfortable to use. It is perhaps to do with the word management --which reeks of Taylorism, hierarchy, command and control--all the connotations that to me are anathema to creating a sense of belonging, infusing passion, and leading. I am happier with community leadership or community facilitation. facilitator is an enabler, a helping hand and a guide.

PKM can be facilitated by an enterprise social network like Jive or Yammer, but an ESN often forces a one-size fits all approach if it is the only knowledge-sharing tool available. It has been over 10 years that I have examined, practiced, and developed models for personal knowledge management/mastery. Here are some reflections on how my thoughts have evolved over that decade.
