L2A Links for April 20th

  • Enterprise 2.0 Blog » Blog Archive » There is No Such Thing as Culture Change – Venk’s original blog post that sparked the debate on culture change (see next bookmark).
  • Venkatesh Rao and Stowe Boyd on E2.0 Culture – Stowe Boyd interview Venkatesh Rao about his keen ability to voice broad generalizations that push peoples buttons and generate conversation in the Enterprise 2.0 space. In his latest he proffers that an organizations’ culture cannot change so it must wait to be destroyed from without instead of changing from within. Scary stuff for all the Organizational Development and Industrial Psychology professionals (not to mention the leaders trying to lead change in their organizations).
  • Why Wikis? : Wikis in Education : THE Journal – Ruth Reynard provides a great overview of how wikis are the latest technology to effectively support the the goals of instruction at various levels

L2A Links for March 1st

  • Progressing Through Change – Introduction – Great (if I do say so myself) online tool you can use for free to see how you or your team are progressing through the changes your organization is facing. Chock full of tips to help you or your team work through change successfully.
  • The Unsociable, Radically-Individualist Soul of Social Media – Another thoughtful (and lengthy – I wish I could commit to typing like Venk does!) post from Venkatesh Rao explores the psychology of people who are successful in "social" media.

L2A Links for February 19th

  • SpeakerRate – For all you public speakers out there: SpeakerRate is designed to help you promote the talks you’re giving – and get that critical feedback you’re seeking.
  • Six ways to make Web 2.0 work – The McKinsey Quarterly – More about Enterprise 2.0 than Web 2.0, McKinsey provides a great business primer on how business leaders can leverage social tools to improve company performance. It is telling that of the six ways, 3 address organization culture, 2 address processes, and one addressed technology. Supporting again my assertion that culture is the biggest challenge of the E2.0 3-legged stool.

Learn to Adapt Links for December 15th through December 17th

  • Set in Our Ways: Why Change Is So Hard: Scientific American – A great article from Scientific American on the biology/psychology of why people are naturally resistant to change. Interestingly, it claims people are more tolerant of change during their 20s and then again after 60.
  • Pew Internet: Future of the Internet – Pew Internet research releases the results of its survey on the future of the Internet. Much as expected, with the exception of one finding that surprised me: "The transparency of people and organizations will increase, but that will not necessarily yield more personal integrity, social tolerance, or forgiveness." I think we may see more tolerance overall as everyone moves to "wearing a transparent kimono."

Learn to Adapt Links for November 11th through November 12th

  • TogetherLearn – From the site: "togetherlearn is a turn-key platform where knowledge workers can collaborate, solve problems, converse, share ideas, brainstorm, learn, bond, talk, explain, communicate, conceptualize, tell stories, help one another, teach, serve customers, clue in partners, keep up to date, meet, flirt, shout, forge partnerships, build communities, and distribute information."
  • A Critical Choice Regarding Innovation – O’Reilly Radar – Good post from Tim O'Reilly regarding innovation and the drivers behind it. It reminds us that collective intelligence is strong in problem solving and knowledge gathering, but there are other drivers at work behind successful innovation
  • Enterprise 2.0: Identify Problem, Find Solution, Then Tools | SocialComputingMagazine.com – Stephen Collins (who I had the great pleasure of teaming with to deliver Web 2.0 learning in Australia) posts an insightful entry on how technology is only the enabler for successful Enterprise 2.0: "Enterprise 2.0 is about the tools least of all – it's principally about people and organisations, the cultures within and among them…"
