You nailed me as a knowledge worker

Web Tools for Learners

Knowledge workers solve problems and generate outputs largely by resort to structures internal to themselves rather than by resort to external rules or procedures. In other words, each knowledge worker develops a different internal “configuration” based on changes wrought in their thinking and outlook by the situations they have encountered, the information they have absorbed and the particular way they have made sense of these.

Share Best Practices - Patterns

Tony Karrer

Dodged that bullet. :) Patterns and Knowledge Work I understand the concern that when you share best practices, you may come out with very different results. Making sense generates cues and allows one to recognize patterns, both in the nature of the problem and response. Through pattern recognition, the problem solver identifies actions to address the issue. Intent: A description of the goal behind the pattern and the reason for using it.

In response to: "Motivation is not what you think" by Jay Cross

ID Reflections

People need free reign in making their work what they want to do; that’s what works with intrinsically motivated workers. In Informal Learning , Jay writes about knowledge workers as: I like to work on things I help create. Such knowledge workers who are intrinsically passionate about their work are notoriously difficult to find and keep, writes Jay. Such innovative knowledge worker is a "different beast" to use Jay's words.

Workplace Productivity

One of the favorite quotes I used to use during presentations was Drucker - The most important contribution of management in the 21st century will be to increase knowledge-worker productivity. I firmly believe that all management and workplace learning professionals need to be constantly looking at how we can improve the performance of knowledge workers. However, when we look at concept workers, workplace productivity seems to be a fairly limiting phrase.

Background: I think most knowledge workers approach work from two perspectives. This is the place where complex ideas take shape and patterns emerge laying down the road map for the future. Knowledge of each other’s work, communication and learning styles. At the cost of sounding egoistic I have realized that like most experienced knowledge workers, I don’t appreciate being informed, I have to be involved.

Using SharePoint

In this post, I wanted to capture some of the patterns of use of SharePoint that seem to be emerging. However, one thing that was very interesting to find in the discussions is that I feel there is a gap between these patterns for using SharePoint and the idea of helping concept workers address the Knowledge Worker Skill Gap and begin to be able to work and learner better. I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint.

In the process of reflection we analyse what happened to generate new knowledge and insights (this might be done individually or in group, a method for systematic reflection in group is After Action Review). It is applied to gain a better understanding of relatively complicated or unstructured ideas and is largely based on the reprocessing of knowledge, understanding and possibly emotions that we already possess.

Demand for the services of these workers will grow as organizations continue to seek ways to improve efficiency and control costs.

Learning for the 21st Century

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Unprecedented changes in the role of the worker, the nature of business, the pace of innovation, the importance of intangibles, the explosion of information, and the shift from a manufacturing to a service economy have rendered traditional corporate learning obsolete. Neurons in the minds of learners forge pathways and form patterns that convert the booming, buzzing cacophony bombarding our senses into the simple vista we call reality. The worker is part of the deliverable.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

Cynefin is a sense-making model – where patterns emerge from the information and data – that explains how to respond to ordered and disordered systems. In complex and chaotic environments (where most knowledge workers reside) traditional training and development approaches that are carried out away from the context of the workplace have little or no impact. We need to help our leaders, managers and workers to better exploit the learning opportunities in their daily workflow.
