Changing with technology: the example of collaborating with slack

Joitske Hulsebosch

driven by new technologies. I think it''s a funny example of the influence of technology on our communication and how our habits are sometimes matching older technologies. It is like some of our habits are one step behind the new technology and can not catch up.

Re-Inventing Collaboration: CRM as Social Technology

Alchemy of Change

Social technologies change the way we collaborate. Though we don’t often see it as such, CRM (or Customer Relationship Management) truly is a social technology. Twitter, Facebook and other social network services have mastered what it takes to scale all three orders of engagement with massive investments in technology. But the same principles operate in all firms – just on a smaller scale, and in ways that are less technology-intensive.

Using Open Space Technology

Chris Corrigan

A post I made to the OSLIST today… I seek simplicity in trying to describe where and how Open Space does it’s magic. One of the ways I have had excellent success over the years in describing this work is derived from David Snowden’s work on the Cynefin framework. The short story is this: We are faced all the time with problems that are basically knowable, and problems that aren’t. Knowable problems mean that with the right knowledge and expertise, they can be fixed.

Responding to Clark Quinn: Technology or preparation?

The influence of social media for learning - technology is more than just a means to a goal

Joitske Hulsebosch

I often hear: "technology is just a tool and should be the starting point, let's start with the goal and the technology will follow". In this blog post, I argue that technology is much more than a means. Social technology is a driving force behind social learning.

Useing Semantic Technology and Machine Learning for Consumer Advice; Retrevo

Portals and KM

He has a PhD in Computer Science with a specialization in Machine Learning and Statistical Pattern Recognition, as well as significant experience with business applications of this technology. This is a great example of the right place to use machine learning and semantic technology.  With all the publicity over IBM’s Watson, there has been a lot of discussion about how far computers can go to “replace” people. Of course, I think that is not really the question to ask.

Can Starting with the Technology Be Business Aligned?

Michael Sampson - Currents

One of the concepts I have been talking about for a while now is starting the collaboration journey with “Really Understand the Technology” (the R in the ROADMAP model I outline in my book Collaboration Roadmap ). In the ideal (or perhaps idealistic) view of the world, the use of new collaboration tools and approaches is solely “driven by the business.”

Why is it called Open Space “Technology?”

"Focusing on Improving Practices" - Oscar Berg re Collaboration Technology

Michael Sampson - Currents

Writing for CMSWire, Oscar from Sweden advocates focusing on improving practices via collaboration technology : " The key question is not if people have adopted a certain technology, but rather how they are using it and how new and improved practices are being adopted. For an organization that seeks to improve its operations and management, the adoption of a certain technology isn’t really interesting unless it creates value.

Semantic Software Technologies Explained and Examined

I have been reading a very interesting and comprehensive report, Semantic Software Technologies: Landscape of High Value Applications for the Enterprise by Lynda Moulton of the Gilbane group.   I am not the only one as I often see conference sessions with such labels as “Is semantic technology real?”. Lynda wrote that she deliberately chose title of this study to refer to semantic software technologies not simply semantic search technologies.
