The Man Who Should Have Used Lotus Connections – On the Misuse of Email

Elsua

A different matter would be email as a collaboration tool, although that’s perhaps the subject for another blog post at some point in time. Funny enough, if you would ask me for the number #1 misuse of email file sharing will be it, by far!;

Well, it is proving to be a little bit of a challenge to eventually share it out there, because there is just so much that I want to include in that current draft (#3 at the moment) that I doubt it would fit in within a single entry. Email.

It has been nearly a month since the last time I put together a blog post over here on how I’m doing living " A World Without Email " and, while looking into the last few weeks, I have just realised that I’m almost on the closure of the second year experiment of giving up on corporate email altogether. However, for week #51 I am going to share it over here, so you can get a quick glimpse of what the last three weeks have been like put together in combination.

Living “A World Without Email” … in Google Plus

Elsua

but what I am rather surprised about is the fact that hardly anyone has talked or blogged about the fact that Plus does present a real threat to the king of communications, collaboration and knowledge sharing: email! Worse still, e-mail is a black hole for knowledge.

A World Without Email – Year 2, Weeks 29 (CBC’s Spark – A World Without Email)

Elsua

I have been able to get a whopping number of 10 emails in a single week ! Yes, 10 emails from last week, you are reading it right! Last year, the first time where I hit 10 or less emails in a single week was on week 46 , with just 3 of them (During a vacation period, to be noted as well). I mean, if on week 29 I am already hitting 10 emails per week, I wonder what it would be like on week 50, for instance.

Elsua

Well, it looks like over the last four weeks the number of incoming emails has been rather steady going from a range of 18 to 34 emails received. And as usual, I owe it to the "wonderful" email capability called " Reply To All " Two or three conversations, three or four replies (I know, that’s nothing!), If you would remember, all along I have been mentioning how I don’t think that the email is going away any time soon (Email is not dead!).

Elsua

With a highest number of 60 emails in a single week, and 3 , the lowest number in a single week as well. But still my new challenge is to go well below the limit of 20 emails a week and perhaps just use email to process calendaring and scheduling events. Go ahead and share them.

Lessons Lost

Chris Collison

Following on from my last post comparing operational effectiveness with knowledge effectiveness, I’m reminded of the “Choke Model” from my BP days. I think there’s a similar perspective that we could take looking at the way in which knowledge is lost during our efforts to “refine it” and transfer it to customers. Let’s take a walk through an organizational learning cycle and see where some of the “chokes” in our knowledge management processes might be.
