Working Smarter in the Enterprise

Jay Cross

On April 27, 2011, Clark Quinn and I kicked off a meeting of the Chief Learning Officer Executive Network at Symantec in Mountain View. The Executive Networks people took notes; here are the main points from my presentation. In 1986, 75% of the knowledge that a worker needed was stored in their heads. The needed information is no longer in the worker’s mind but it is “out there” in the minds of others. Social Networks. Andrew McAfee: Enterprise 2.0.

Work Literacy and what I plan to do about it

Web Tools for Learners

From the Work Literacy blog: Work Literacy is based on the beliefs that: With the growth of new technologies, explosion of new information, and accessibility of experts around the world, there’s a growing gap between the work practices and skills that most knowledge workers possess and the resources available to them. As knowledge workers we need practical skills, methods and tools that will improve our effectiveness and help us stay on top of our game.

Thus not only do we lose out on diverse inputs and knowledge, we also proverbially reinvent the wheel many times over and feed into systemic inefficiency.

Jane Hart

Social technologies now play a big part in everything we do, and it is quite clear that many knowledge workers use a variety of social tools and networks not only to help them get work done, but also to learn efficiently while on the job. We also know that this informal, social learning accounts for 80% or more of how people learn in the workplace, so it is not something to be dismissed as irrelevant or trivial.

I have recently taken on enterprise community facilitation and was curious to see how people are interacting on our enterprise collaboration platform. This is especially true of communities in enterprises.
