    21. 22. <ul><li>Qualcomm’s technology connects you wherever you are in the world. </li></ul><ul><li>We manufacture wireless chipsets, license technology and provide communications services around the world. </li></ul><ul><li>In a global economy, we are the link to markets and opportunity. ... </li></ul><ul><li>We provide all wireless companies with the R&D to bring their innovations to mark </li></ul>

    23. 24. <ul><li>Business Problem: How to communicate and reinforce Corporate culture and values, disseminate information, identify trends, share attitudes and behaviors and onboard new employees? </li></ul><ul><li>Solution: In 2005, Qualcomm began to capture employee stories in a program called “52 weeks”... first emails and now a website ... thousands of employees receive emails and visit website ... hundreds submit stories with videos, pictures, graphics, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Result: “ Stories are powerful ways to communicate and in the case of “52 weeks”, they are enabling Qualcomm to maintain an innovative and high performing organizational culture.” </li></ul>
    24. 25. Google is not just the world's largest and most popular web search engine. Google provides multiple web services, desktop software products, and even their own branded Lava Lamps.
    25. 26. Business Problem: How do you continue to grow and innovate by attracting and nurturing the best and brightest engineers – who make up 50% of the company - from around the world. 
    26. 27. Business Problem: How do you continue to grow and innovate by attracting and nurturing the best and brightest engineers – who make up 50% of the company - from around the world.  Solution:   iEngEdu, Google’s engineering learning platform, enables the engineering community itself to design, develop and deliver consistent quality learning based on needs they define - with minimal external guidance and direct support and in a timeframe, depth and scale that a centralized function could not handle (e.g., ‘engineers teaching engineer’) Result: The number of engineers using the platform and the growth of the repository of learning content, are both trending to prove the value of the platform.
    27. 28. Considered the founder of the biotechnology industry, Genentech has been delivering on the promise of biotechnology for more than 30 years, using human genetic information to discover, develop, manufacture and commercialize medicines to treat patients with serious or life-threatening medical conditions. Today, Genentech is among the world's leading biotech companies, with multiple products on the market and a promising development pipeline.
    28. 29. Business Problem: How to deploy better ways to generate and cross-pollinate ideas, and build on ideas as they form; enable these many experts who want to contribute to self-organize effectively and efficiently; create a space for the sharing of diverse approaches, ideas, styles and perspectives; and, to push out into the organization the context and information necessary for effective decision-making.
    29. 30. Business Problem: How to deploy better ways to generate and cross-pollinate ideas, and build on ideas as they form; enable these many experts who want to contribute to self-organize effectively and efficiently; create a space for the sharing of diverse approaches, ideas, styles and perspectives; and, to push out into the organization the context and information necessary for effective decision-making. Solution: Combination of interactive learning methodologies (i.e., open spaces, dialogue, games, sites) and online community platforms based on Web 2.0 technologies (i.e., social networks, micro-blogging tools, alumni and mentoring communities, Google sites/docs). (e.g., Genepool) Result: In just 8 months, 680,000 page views representing comments to blogs, replies to discussion topics, edits to wikis, etc.), 4,000 unique (i.e., new) visitors each month... Increased employee engagement and management visibility .

    39. 41. Formalizing Informal Learning Training Magazine Network Free Tools to Enable Informal Learning & Organizational Business Intelligence Exchange & Capture What is Training Magazine Network?
    40. 42. <ul><li>The concept of “formalizing” informal learning isn’t to remove informality or the value of the informal exchange of information. </li></ul><ul><li>Formalizing means bringing informal learning within a formal structure, where the information exchange and consequent learning can be captured for the review and application of others. </li></ul><ul><li>Formalizing Informal Learning is to... </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Enable sharing of information with those who weren’t participants at the time </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Enable more members to “join the conversation” synchronously and asynchronously </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Capture the collective business intelligence of the organization </li></ul></ul></ul>
    41. 43. <ul><li>Training Magazine Network provides members with a free web-based and hosted application designed to: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Capture formal and informal communication </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Promote the application and sharing of learning </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Track the measurable results of applying training and learning </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Enable all members to contribute and exchange information and content through </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>discussions, discussion groups </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>online content publishing tools </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>goal-setting, progress-tracking system </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>online coaching system </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>tools to enable sharing of learnings and results </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    42. 44. There are few systems designed specifically for this purpose. In most cases, organizations are struggling to patch together Facebook, Ning and other applications that weren’t designed to support learning to accomplish these outcomes. In addition, organizations place themselves at legal risk when using applications not designed to protect employee privacy. As privacy policies change – as in the Facebook debacle – businesses may find themselves at risk where they were once safe from exposure to liability claims.
