  • Vince Poscente the author of Age of Speed describes that increasing the speed for which we do things and absorb information is integral to surviving today and tomorrow. He also recognizes that demand and desire for speed has blurred the lines between work, home and play. This new environment has changed the paradigm of compartmentalized life. While some of us see this as a negative, Vince Poscente describes ways that using more flexibility a prescription of how having more flexibility --not in compartmentalized way but mixing and matching the different aspects of our lives—can actually help in doing those things we value and find significant.I recognize that some of you probably don’t believe me. However, it is important to recognize that others are working in this way and more and more will seek the flexibility of work and play.The key is managing, filtering, and balancing all that is thrown our way.\"Speed leads to a more pleasant, less stressful experience.“ http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1670550,00.html XxxWe want things faster, but we don't necessarily want to do things faster.“This time where we really have to decide, and our employers have to decide, how we're going to respect our time and the choices we can make and the boundaries that we want to have to be able to really truly have the time for those significant things. That's where the overwhelm is coming from. We have no time to think or do anything. This survey that I did, it's really interesting; 56% of people felt that in order to be successful they had to slow their lives down. But 77% felt that things would only speed up in the next five years. So the knee-jerk reaction is that in order for us to feel like we're enjoying anything, we have to slow down. [But] things aren't slowing down.”So you don't have to use your speed to be speedier.No, that's the thing. You don't have to use the speed to be busier. We make these choices so we can have the more significant things in life, the things that are really important to us. What is the impact of all of this speed on families, when parents are so speeded up that they can't pay enough attention to their families?I think we're in some dangerous times and I think it is a bad thing. We are not choosing the extra time that all this technology and all the products and services that are supposed to provide. We aren't making the choice in many cases to say, 'wait a minute, I'm going to use this extra time with my kids.‘What about the old saying, \"Haste makes waste\"?Haste can make waste, [but] a stitch in time saves nine. If we use the technology to accelerate, use the products, use the services that are designed to buy us this time, then you can change from the word \"haste\" to \"leveraging the speed.\" Harnessing this oncoming force and use it to our advantage. That's the opposite of waste. That's where we have bought us the time to have more life than we have and enjoy it even more. It turns out that the fortuneteller was wrong. xxxx<number>

  • Information, Technology and Information Worker Productivity Sinan Aral NYU - Stern School of Business; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) - Sloan School of ManagementErik Brynjolfsson Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) - Sloan School of Management; National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER)Marshall W. Van Alstyne Boston University - Department of Management Information Systems; MIT - Center for E-BusinessAbstract: We study the fine-grained relationships among information flows, IT use, and individual information worker productivity, by analyzing work at a midsize executive recruiting firm. We analyze both project-level and individual-level performance using: (1) direct observation of over 125,000 e-mail messages over a period of 10 months by individual workers (2) detailed accounting data on revenues, compensation, project completion rates, and team membership for over 1300 projects spanning 5 years, and (3) survey data on a matched set of the same workers' IT skills, IT use and information sharing. These detailed data permit us to econometrically evaluate a multistage model of production and interaction activities at the firm, and to analyze the relationships among communications flows, key technologies, work practices, and output. We find that (a) the structure and size of workers' communication networks are highly correlated with their performance; (b) IT use is strongly correlated with productivity but mainly by allowing multitasking rather than by speeding up work; (c) productivity is greatest for small amounts of multitasking but beyond an optimum, multitasking is associated with declining project completion rates and revenue generation; and (d) asynchronous information seeking such as email and database use promotes multitasking while synchronous information seeking over the phone shows a negative correlation. Overall, these data show statistically significant relationships among social networks, technology use, completed projects, and revenues for project-based information workers. Results are consistent with simple production models of queuing and multitasking and these methods can be replicated in other settings, suggesting new frontiers for bridging the research on social networks and IT value.

  • We analyzed the *content* of the email messages and found that in fact employees with more diverse social networks did have access to more diverse information (as measured across the content of their email). We also found that this link - between network diversity and information diversity - explained productivity and performance differences: Workers with access to diverse information through diverse social networks generated more revenue, completed more projects and completed projects faster, controlling for a host of traditional demographic and human capital variables such as age, gender, education, industry experience etc.The paper can be found here:Aral, Sinan and Van Alstyne, Marshall W., \"Network Structure & Information Advantage: Structural Determinants of Access to Novel Information and Their Performance Implications\" (January 18, 2007).

  • Workstreaming describes a new model of business process enabled by the creation of workstreams, i.e. digital footprints[1] and activity trails formed during work-related collaboration and communications. Workstreams and are made possible through the use of specific technologies and the movements toward more open, distributed and accountable business processes. Workstreaming is a best practice of social business design (SBD).Workstreaming tools are often designed with architectures supporting real-time activity streams sometimes called flow applications but applied within the context of workWorkstreaming is a best practice instituted by businesses that desire increased openness and transparency (sometimes also referred to as socialprise or open enterprise). Such businesses place an emphasis on cultures of participation, centralized accountability and collaboration among a distributed workforce.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workstreaming Result of the use of social and collaborative technologies and the movements toward more open, distributed and accountable business processes. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Workstreaming flickr.com/photos/tomsaint/2782080849<number>

  • Strategies for managing information and technology growthAdapted partially from Floyd Davenport’s Keeping Up With Technology by Floyd DavenportFirst and foremost, relax. Don’t let technology overwhelm and stress you. There are over 100 million blogs covering thousands of different subjects, you can’t read them all. Studies have shown that up to 90% of software features go unused, don’t feel you have to learn them all. Recognize your own limitations and priorities and understand that you are not alone. http://www.flickr.com/photos/zunami/2283133585/ Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 GenericYou are free: to Share — to Remix — Under the following conditions: Attribution.

  • Strategies for managing information and technology growthAdapted from Floyd Davenport’s Keeping up with TechnologyStay curious. Embrace your inner child and don’t be afraid to play. People over the age of 25 didn’t grow up in the digital age so we can be out of our comfort zone when experimenting with new technologies. We like to understand what will happen before we press a button. Don’t be too quick to judge the value of a new service or technology until you have had a chance to experience it. Look for potential and be creative.http://www.flickr.com/photos/jerobins/2760299430/ <number>
  • Strategies for managing information and technology growthAdapted from Floyd Davenport’s Keeping Up With Technology by Floyd DavenportUse a “start page” service like Netvibes (http://www.netvibes.com/) or iGoogle (http://www.google.com/ig) to organize and review information. These easy to use services help you create your own “home” page and aggregate information and applications into one location. They list numerous resources which can keep you current on everything from the newest gadgets to the latest services in social media. Choose a couple of news services that Techmeme (http://www.techmeme.com/) that bring the latest news on technology.<number>
  • Strategies for managing information and technology growthAdapted from Floyd Davenport’s Keeping Up With Technology by Floyd DavenportNetwork with your friends and colleagues. We can communicate, share information and engage with more people today than ever before. Take advantage of services like Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/) or Twitter (http://twitter.com/) and build relationships with individuals who share your interests. My personal favorite is Twitter for its portability and casual conversation. Don’t underestimate the power of networking. Your network can become the single most important filter for relevant information.<number>

  • Filters for information must be automated, manually constructed, and continuously re-tuned. All solutions for filters are temporary. It's not an information overload problem, it's a filter failure, and we, as individuals, have to create, rethink, and re-tuned the filters. Today, we design the filters so the privacy works the way we want it? Updating the old filters is not the fix.<number>

My rewording: In large groups you can easily have lurkers. In small groups, you must be able to contribute in some way--just lurking is not permitted. It's a mental shift--rethinking the model--we are the same as fish in the ocean--we are just in the flow. My rewording: The ocean isn't the problem. The question is: how do we navigate the flow? Rethinking the model because before the Internet the filter of the information was at the source. Now the filters are with the people. Updating the old filters is not the fix. We should re-think the social norms. When you think you have information overload, think about what filters broke. How is email broken? What are the solutions? Other methods of sharing, wikis, blogs, Twitter,FriendFeed, instant messaging. How are feeds from newsreaders broken? How do I streamline and choose what feeds I read? Constantly changing feeds in my reader. What about other solutions? Friendfeed and Twitter for manual filtering? Still not working? More solutions coming. <number>
