This Week on #TalkTech: Apple Slows Innovation, PKM Not a Technology, and Digital Natives

Bottom-Line Performance

Topic 1: The iPhone boasts improved specs and a larger screen size — but is it still an innovative product? Topic 2: Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is Not a Technology…so how do we help organizations learn informally? Harold Jarche, writer and consultant on social learning and PKM, often explains that informal learning is how we naturally learn and NOT a product that can be purchased. If anyone is selling you a PKM system, they do not understand it.

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

Workers will be inundated with a constant stream of information, so they will need to have a good set of new skills to deal with it all, in order to flourish and work productively. All this is collectively referred to as personal knowledge management (or PKM). PKM skills are vital in a social workplace, and they are also an essential set of skills for managing one’s own professional development through continuous learning. How do you help workers develop a PKM skill set?

Demystifying Working Out Loud

It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM. While the practice may seem novel, it actually taps into the basic human nature of sharing, learning and collaborating – aspects of humanity that traditional organizations suppressed in the name of efficiency, economy of scale and productivity. future_of_work informal learning pkm PLN wol workingoutloud Workplace Learning

From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management

Jane Hart

Finding solutions to their own personal performance problems and/or improving their own productivity – through quick and easy access to on-demand resources and by constantly reviewing the tools in their personal toolkit. The most effective workers are using Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) techniques, to manage this process and get things done. Here’s a short presentation by Harold Jarche that explains PKM and his Seek-Sense-Share PKM framework.

Social Learning Cannot Be A Bolt-On Strategy

Learnnovators

Social Business means that every department, from HR to marketing to product development to customer service to sales, uses social media the way it uses any other tool and channel to do its job. By encouraging employees to build their own Personal Learning Networks (PLN) and enabling them to use digital tools for more efficient Personal Knowledge Management (PKM), organizations will reap the benefits of this networked learning.

Buzzwords and Branding

Clark Quinn

Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM) , for instance, is a brand for a framework. And that’s worked, but it’s not quite enough to hang products on. I was reflecting on a few things on terminology, buzzwords and branding in particular.

I Believe in the Value of Working out Loud

Tom Spiglanin

In many other subjects, term papers were effectively show-your-work products that described a train of thought, taking the reader from preliminary premises to the conclusion. Those who continued onto graduate work had at least one significant show-your-work product: a dissertation or thesis. In early school days, our work was shown fully as we did it; that rough format was often the final submitted product with the answer circled.

Re-imagining Work & Learning in a Networked World

ID Reflections

As Dr. Gratton says in the book: "A crucial question for understanding the future of work is predicting what people will actually do with this unprecedented level of connectivity, content and productive possibilities. The key question then is: " How do we re-imagine the workplace such that organizations become platforms for individuals to come together to collaborate, and innovate, and deliver services and products that are valued? "The nature of work is changing.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

LMS technology emerged from a need to automate process management and record-keeping systems in the post-World War II era when the focus was on industrialisation and the development of mass production techniques. The Rise of PKM My diagram above points to PKM (Personal Knowledge Management) as an important focus area in supporting the learning-work interlink. Harold Jarche has written extensively on PKM and you can download his PKM Whitepaper from here.

Working out Loud and Serendipity

ID Reflections

Thus, w orking out loud is intrinsically linked to two critical aspects of becoming a good learner -- Personal knowledge Management (PKM) and building one''s Personal Learning Network (PLN). Serendipity is another by-product of working out loud. I started my day reading a post by Rawn Shah called Work Out Loud because Everyone is Figuring Out Their Job. The post of course struck a chord and reminded me that this is #wol week.

eLearning Innovation 2010 – Top 30

Tony Karrer

Google Buzz , Google Wave and PKM PKM stands for Personal Knowledge Management, which is a definite passion of mine (see Work Literacy and Social Media for Knowledge Workers ). I had an interesting conversation the other day about whether there’s that much new going on in eLearning here in 2010. The general sentiment around the room was that many workplace learning organizations were focused on nuts-and-bolts training, and that there was little innovation.

Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion

Tony Karrer

This is much like all the discussion around personal productivity tools, but in this case it is more focused on research oriented work that requires learning as a component of the activity. I also am finding myself ever more convinced that we are discussing basically the same thing being discussed in PKM circles and even some overlap with productivity.

A new literacy? There’s an app for that

Clark Quinn

In the Personal Knowledge Management framework of my colleague Harold Jarche, it’s be a new component of improving personal productivity. The ubiquity of powerful mobile devices able to download applications that enable unique capabilities, has led David Pogue to coin them “ app phones “ Similarly, the expression “there’s an app for that&# has been part of widespread marketing campaign. However, it turns out that apps are more than just on phones.

The changes they make to their products which are truly innovative and new are simple and relatively small. You might also enjoy: Idea Management and Design – You Mean PKM? Progress can seem like a scary thing sometimes. It can mean that the things we’re comfortable with are suddenly pulled out from under us. A world which everything is familiar can suddenly become a world we look around in and don’t recognize anything.

Mentoring Results

Clark Quinn

Expressed by my colleague was a concern that there was a conflict between&# (a) supporting someone’s learning and (b) being invested in the success of their work product&#. And I would think that the management is NOT directly invested in the product, only in the producer. If they’re not producing good output, they either need to develop the person or replace them, which indirectly affects the product.

It empowers learners to build their personal learning networks (PLN) and personal knowledge management (PKM) by leveraging technology to connect a distributed and diverse workforce. While we are wont to blame the management models of the Industrial Era and their continuing prevalence today for the lack of trust and transparency we see in many/most organizations, we have to understand that this model served its purpose when scalable efficiency and productivity were the desired outcome.

Uberizing Organizational Learning – Thinking Beyond Courses

ID Reflections

L&D needs to don the curator’s hat – a critical 21 st Century skill – that requires an ability to seek, sense and share ( Harold Jarche’s PKM model ) relevant content for a defined target audience. I also liken it to developing a service-mindset over a product-mindset. Make it an ongoing effort – Uberization takes away the comfort of creating a one-time product (a course), launching it, and moving on to repeat the process. Designing courses is passé!

LearnTrends: The Immernet Singularity

Experiencing eLearning

We focus on formal learning & productivity but ignore informal learning and performance. Knowledge Management is an oxymoron–you can’t manage knowledge Very interesting seeing this perspective after Harold’s PKM presentation yesterday. These are my live blogged notes from Tony O’Driscoll’s LearnTrends session on The Immernet Singularity. My side comments are in italics.

PKM: our part of the social learning contract Creating good content on a platform that lets users (teachers & learners) add context may be the the real killer application in education. Short fast messaging among people with common interests and objectives can be a real boon to performance and productivity. For the paste one week or so, I have been reading up on the importance of context as opposed to content.

Personal Learning Knowledge Work Environment

Tony Karrer

adoption is getting folks to manage their personal knowledge and adopt practices like blogging for personal knowledge management (PKM) and personal learning. What this has come to make me realize is that for the vast majority of knowledge workers (including myself), there should be no separation between my Personal Learning Environment (PLE), my Personal Knowledge Management system, and my day-to-day set of tools that enhance my knowledge worker productivity.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

This sounds a lot like a personal learning environment, personal knowledge management (PKM) and personal work and learning environment (PWLE) and PIM. For example, Personal Learning , PLE , PWLE , PKM are all pretty closely related. Productivity This series is going to be way too long as it is, so I have to draw the line somewhere. I'm not going to cover a core literacy for concept workers that is what I think of as productivity.

Nick Leffler

Idea Management and Design – You Mean PKM? — This was a new term to me, but it turns out to closely follow a term that I was already familiar with, PKM. When creating any product, it’s important for at least certain people to see the progress. You don’t just want to show someone a finished product and hope they like it, you want to know they like it before you’ve done too much work.
