Perhaps this is why knowledge sharing is either difficult, or fails?

In about 1,5 hours, I will go present to a network I’m part of. It’s about knowledge sharing. Or rather, that’s one part of it. I come from a technical background, with a special interest in solutions for knowledge sharing, collaboration and communication. The technical platforms which let people think, do and talk. In other words, the essentials of daily work – at least to me. I’ve been thinking a lot lately, about why it is that sharing knowledge is…

If you work with knowledge, think like a farmer

There are many aspects to being a knowledge worker, this day in age, and a lot of disengaging factors as well. I’ll disregard the subjects of organization, leadership and teamwork for a minute, and focus on one very basic subject: Understanding what knowledge is, and why you can’t EVER escape the social element, if you’re in the business of knowing, and generating knowledge. Where does knowledge fit into the picture ? One model I came across, which I find very…

Vil du med i transparenscirkus?

Forleden dag under Internet Week Denmark, var jeg til #Unhype Social Media oplæg af Anders Colding-Jørgensen. Som altid var Anders morsom, havde skarpe pointer, og såede nogle gode tanker om blandt andet transparens, og hele det her Social Business cirkus. En af pointerne, som jeg opfattede den, var at transparens bør være en kontrolleret størrelse. En planlagt forestilling – et transparenscirkus, så vi ikke utilsigtet ryger i uføre. Fordi fuld transparens giver dig indblik i nogle dele af en verden…

Den der interne firmafacebooktingest – den er spild af tid, lav noget i stedet!

Hørt ofte ? Jeg har hørt den relativt ofte, eller noget lignende, og især fra en leder. Der kan endda sagtens være noget sandhed i det (det som dog ikke er sandt er, at jeres løsning er en intern Facebook. Faktisk mener jeg at Facebook helt bør elimineres som sammenlignelig løsning). Men det er ofte ikke fordi samarbejdsværktøjerne ikke virker. Ofte er det virksomhedens kultur eller manglende viden som gør, at påkrævede elementer af alt det ikke-tekniske, simpelthen mangler. Nuvel…

Boganmeldelse: Livsfarlig Ledelse

Ledelse har i mange år været en passion for mig. Ud fra den erkendelse, at jeg har oplevet meget få gode ledere (subjektivt), hvilket har påvirket mig som menneske og medarbejder. Jeg har brugt rigtig lang tid på, at reflektere over ledere, deres ansvar, deres sti mod lederskabet, og sågar min egen plads i hele den ligning. Ligesom jeg havde en følelse af, at tingene kunne gøres anderledes, da jeg læste “The Digital Workplace” af Paul Miller, så har jeg…

The accountable leader

I once had a boss. And when I say boss, I mean bosshole. He was no leader. I’m pretty sure Robert Sutton would’ve called him “a gigantuous asshole“. Well, Mr. Sutton’s not writing this, I am. So you should hold me accountable to those words. In any case, we were to have a meeting once. It was supposed to be about one thing. It turned out, that meeting took an entirely other direction. He basically drew a scale on a…

Get on the bus, or get off…

I recently read an article on LinkedIN, titled When it’s time to go: A look at the psychological contract. The article in itself was a good read, and I can definitely relate to what Dr. Marla Gottschalk points out. But what caught my attention was one of the comments (which appear to be removed). It said something along the lines of: Get on the bus, or get off. But don’t stand at the busstop complaining. While I completely agree with…
