I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

The answer lies across several domains of a knowledge worker’s practice. These are good practices that help us grow our knowledge, but what we really need are mindful, disciplined processes for managing it on a daily basis.

Personal knowledge management is, above all else, personal.

The Twitter Chat Conundrum (Part One)

This goes beyond the normal chat etiquette, but as self-directed, socially minded gatherers of knowledge, what is our role? How can we make chats be an even more important part of our knowledge man.

Becoming a Social Business – Beyond Culture Change

Learnnovators

Over the past few years, the need to become a social business and to promote enterprise-wide collaboration have taken hold in many organizations. The crux of the problem lies in our inability to see how the culture of organizations stem from and is shaped by the very discourse of management that we have collectively subscribed to ever since the Industrial Revolution and the manufacturing era.

Integrating Social Learning In The Workplace

Learnnovators

I have been writing about social learning and its related concepts – communities of practices , working out loud and skills for the networked world for quite some time now. Social learning has become a buzzword in the workplace learning space, and every other organization is claiming to have “social learning” as a part of the mix. The catch is that “social learning” cannot just be implemented or enforced. Nor can one be sent off to attend a class on social learning.

It’s called ThruWork… because everything flows through the work.

Social play can be Social Learning

Ideaon

I have been asked a half-dozen times about my thoughts on Social Learning within corporations. At work we do use social tools such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger and YouTube for learning purposes. When I ask about social learning in the work place, I normally get blank stares from potential clients, “Do you mean I should allow my employees play on Facebook at work?” This makes me wonder whether everyone is classifying social learning as social playing.

Bottom-Line Performance

Social Learning is not a “new” course or LMS feature…it’s something that happens naturally.

We learned this through our launch of College Hoops Guru, the latest question pack we created for our Knowledge Guru game engine.

I Believe in the Value of Connectedness

Tom Spiglanin

Social connectedness is essentially a measure of how people interact and to what end. Most employees have far stronger connections through the organization’s hierarchy consisting of layers of manager/direct report relationships. While strong, hierarchical connections also vary greatly across the organization depending on the nature of the work and individual management styles. Today, social media connect people around the world.
