The connected leader

Learning and Working on the Web

Leadership, like culture, is an emergent property of people working together. Networked contributors (whether they are full-time, part-time, or contractors) do the bulk of the knowledge work at the edges of the organization.

Structuring for the network era

Learning and Working on the Web

It is only through  enforced  standardization of  methods,  enforced  adoption of the best implements and working conditions, and  enforced  cooperation that this faster work can be assured.

New Work and New Work Skills

Clark Quinn

really was all about new work skills - skills we should be learning. Actually, it's also about the fact that there's not really new work as much as there is new work skills. Work Skills Changing Most of us who used to use these things know somewhat know that they really aren't in use anymore. In presentations, I often will cite this as an example of the kinds of changes in work skills that have occurred and are constantly occurring.
