12.9, check your calendars for knowledge, learning and innovation

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

On wednesday 12.9 around 19:00 Yritys 2.0 book project (Enterprise 2.0) will host an informal session in Café Luft, Helsinki (Aleksis Kiven Katu 30). The session is open and free for anyone to join, but we ask you to register yourself beforehand (more information here). We plan to host these sessions about once a month.

I have promised to lead a conversation entitled “Havaintoja tiedosta, oppimisesta ja innovaatioista organisaatioissa” (Observations on knowledge, learning and innovations in organizations). The conversation will be in finnish, but we are not turning anyone down simply because of language barriers. The main focus will be conversation among the participants rather than “sage on the stage”. You are welcome to join us.

Horizontal technologies for learning

I have an article on horizontal learning in our company blog. I thought it would be worth reading for some of my readers.

My top 10 tools

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

I just came back from a vacation. I’m full of energy and great ideas are waiting to be implemented in the coming months.

To get things done, I use several different tools. Some time ago I created a mindmap of my knowledge working landscape, categorizing various tools I use under labels like gathering, processing, networking, sharing, scheduling and listing various contexts in which the work gets done.

It’s a great exercise to see what tools you are using to complete different tasks and gives a quick overview how your knowledge working flow could be improved. I will share this mindmap later because some people have asked for it.

Until then, here is a link to my list of top 10 tools on the website of Centre fro Learning & Performance Technologies. They are in no particular order and do not include the 100+ other tools, but are some of the most frequently used in my toolbox. If you want to browse and get great new recommendations for experimentation, see what other professionals on the field are listing as their top 10 tools.
