Muller and Chua - brainstorming for japan - chi 2012

  1. 1. Brainstorming for Japan:Rapid Distributed Global Collaboration for Disaster Response Michael Muller & Sacha Chua IBM Research & IBM Canada michael_muller@us.ibm.com , sachac@ca.ibm.com 1
  2. 2. Agenda• IBM Connections Communities for Conducting Jams• Jamming for Japan – Geographic distribution – Metrics – Social Network Analysis• Outcomes• Conclusion 2
  3. 3. IBM Connections for Conducting Jams• Company-wide Jams 2001-2010• Re-use a smaller-scale, existing IBM-internal genre from customer engagements = Customer Idea Jam• IBM Connections Communities – a tool for online groups• A “community” is a bounded online space containing - Members - Feeds - Activities - Files - Bookmarks - Forums - Blogs - Wikis how to become “the connected city” Example: Consulting to a city administration about 3
  4. 4. Japan Jam TOPIC 1: Increasing resilienceTopicsInitial TOPIC 2: Leveraging technology in rebuilding TOPIC 3: Nation-wide continuity planning for the future TOPIC 4: Address public perceptions TOPIC 5: Engaging global supportExtended Topics TOPIC 6: Managing energy consumption TOPIC 7: Improving supply chain resilience 4

  13. 13. Outcomes• The “canonical” analysis of emergency management – Planning Responding Recovering Preventing• When IBM entered the situation – Responding Recovering Preventing Planning• Our Jam took place after IBM’s initial response Recover Respond Prevent Planning Pre-Jam assistance 13
  14. 14. OutcomesResponding Preventing• Use current tools in new ways (e.g., • Harden existing networks adapt weather forecasting to • Improve storage redundancy in radiation spread) remote regions• Use laptop shock-detectors as • Provide rapid-recovery for distributed tremor sensors medical and city records• Telemedicine without power gridsRecovering Planning• Smart utility management through • Use knowledge management modeling power demand and and social media technologies impact of planned rolling power to collect best practices from outages other regions• Resilient information technologies • Develop technical and social for hospitals and cities simulations to test resource resilience and social response 14
  15. 15. Conclusions• Mobilization of a large, entirely-volunteer work “entity” – Were we a “community?” …of what? – Or a “team?” … but without an assignment, manager, or deliverable – Emergent online-community genres of • remote, intensive work structures (working practices) • online structures (flexible, structured community spaces)• Online resource was transformative – 43 countries + 1250 people, including 275 contributors in 3 days – Very low articulation costs + Very low contribution costs – Post-jam analysis was crucial• Work practices were transformative – Practiced expert facilitation from rapid customer engagements – Practiced employee-participation based on previous jams – Organizational climate that encourages new initiatives A new family of integrated resources for emergency response & management 15
