These are my live blogged notes from the opening session at ASTD’s TK12 in Las Vegas.
2012 is the year of collaboration. Why now?
Opening video produced by video – Search on in 2011 – the year in review. “2011 was the year of…” – go Google it and watch it.
Q4 2010 smart phones outsold computers.
Sharing lots of stats…800,000,000 on Facebook, iphone sales, tablet sales, etc. This is not a flash in the pan.
The New Social Learning by Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner - “how can we help people bring this social media tools into their learning environment?”
Seth Godin “if you wait until there is another case study in your industry, you’re too late.” – we need to di it now.
Telus (Canadian telecom company) – they equip workers with flip cams while they’re on a post high up in the air and they’re sharing those with each other. Dan Pontefract at Telus – creating a culture of collaboration. We’re all responsible for sharing our knowledge with each other.
NetApp – advanced app where you can learn, onboard, ask questions.
Mayo Clinic – creating a culture of collaborative caring. They set up a twitter account to share with the public, prospective patients, med/research communities. A woman with wrist pain started following @mayoclinic. She learned about a doctor…she got the correct diagnosis and got surgery she needed.
CIA – we need to share. Created the CIA WIRe (World Intelligence review). Share info too broadly, people can die; share too closely, people can die.
Hilton – using mobile to support formal efforts, etc. making it more personal and accessible. lpads for senior leadership.
- think mobile (design for the device)
- realize small successes – don’t expect overnight transformation
- find an executive sponsor
- partner with IT and others
- use low cost software tools available today (yammer, etc.)
- Drive IMPACT vs. ROI
- Govern lightly
