  • About Headshift headshift is a social software consulting and development group who apply emerging tools and ideas to the real-world needs of organisations: consulting & engagement prototyping and experimentation development and integration
  • What’s happening today • We are wasting a lot of brainpower in organisations • We are wasting a lot of time with e-mails and in meetings
  • Knowledge • ‘Knowledge is not a tree, but a pile of leaves.’ • New problems, new challenges, new ideas
  • Better and more opportunities to... • Talk to each other and share expertise • Ask questions • Get a group together to find an answer or solution for a problem • Observe and watch what and how other people do things • Browse and search for answers • Create and produce something together • Compare different ideas • Invent • Explore a new territory • Encounter tacit knowledge
  • Better and more opportunities to... Learn from each other!
  • Social software • Is people driven • Lightweight • Makes information and people find you
  • Key elements of ‘enterprise 2.0’ • Social tools (blog, wiki, tagging, bookmarking, IM) • An ecosystem of data (RSS, microformats, APIs) • Subscription and aggregation (feeds, people, places • Participatory culture (co-production, discussion) • Social search
  • Collaborative, community based learning • Learning is problem and content driven • Organising knowledge that is significant and relevant to people • Discussion and reflection • Co-production • Personalised formal and informal knowledge and learning spaces
  • Towards collaborative intelligence • Communities of practice • Networked individualism
  • Some concrete use cases • Information and knowledge sharing • Collaboration in and between teams • Innovation and R&D • Internal communication • Social networks and communities

  • Building a better personal radar • Build a better radar, use social tools and trust to make decisions • More peripheral, contextual information flows • Less dependency on e-mail • Better findability, not storage
  • Sharing = scaling and... ...building trust
  • Software is not enough To reach second wave adopters, we need to create ‘situated’ applications that are mapped to existing practice in order to make them relevant & contextual. Engaging people with new ways of working is not easy.
  • Learning ≠ training • Structured training and object based learning are suited for repetitive jobs • Learning is about connections and content • IT systems need to augment, not manage learning.
  • We live, we learn • Learning is interaction • Learning is social
  • And what about... • Time • Resistance • Tool competency • Information literacy • Different learner types • Changing the workplace - changes in behaviour
