One of the common constructs used to ‘frame’ knowledge management activities is that of Collect or Connect. Connect takes us into the areas of networks, communities, social networking, expertise profiling, knowledge jams, cafes, conversations and randomised coffee trials.

Secret Objectives v Shared Knowledge. Open Performance Management anyone?

Chris Collison

OK – most of us know our own objectives, but Dilbert has a point… Perhaps this is all a bit obvious, but, inspired by a recent talk from Euan Semple not to eschew stating the obvious, I thought I’d pose the question: Why is is that even in enlightened organisations who emphasise collaboration and connection, personal performance objectives still seem to be treated with the same level of protection and secrecy as personal salaries?

John Tropea - Delicious Social Network

Connect To Thrive. Social Connection Improves Health, Well-Being & Longevity. But how many of us know that social connection is as important? Social connection improves physical health and psychological well-being.

The Foreword for Doing Business with IBM Connections (2013) - by Jeff Schick

Michael Sampson - Currents

Here''s the Foreword that Jeff wrote for my new book - Doing Business with IBM Connections. The thinking at the time was that it was becoming easier and easier to publish and share information on the Internet and that this same phenomenon, if applied to the business enterprise, would really help people do their work. At the time, fledgling social networks on the Internet were so easy to use that even non-technical people could post and share content.

What poets can tell us about ‘openness’ and ‘sharing’

Jenny Connected

The ModPo MOOC ( Modern and Contemporary American Poetry ) is surprising me in many ways, but mostly because in the poems we have studying in Weeks 1 and 2, there seem to be so many connections with my research into online teaching and learning. No registration or ‘signing up’ was required and it was expected that participants would ‘openly’ share their knowledge, expertise, ideas and thinking in the course.

Connected Learning in an Open World

Jenny Connected

Open’ means open in all senses, particularly in the sense of open sharing of thought processes, and should be the default position in Universities. But Universities are resistant to openness in the sense of open sharing, and content providers do not want people to have free and open access.

Doing Business with IBM Connections Workshop in Switzerland – hosted by WebGate

Michael Sampson - Currents

Today I presented the Doing Business with IBM Connections workshop in Switzerland, at the invitation of WebGate Consulting. In my book Doing Business with IBM Connections (2013) on which the workshop is based, there are a couple of case studies aligned with each of the ten core scenarios. I really liked being able to tell their stories, and then being able to invite them to fill in the blanks or give some more insights into the use of Connections.
