Blow your mind (sort of)

Talk about conflicting influences :-), how about mixing a NGO crusader with ex-GE “Neutron” Jack Welch? Last year I had a bit of a shock when reading Hildy Gottlieb’s blog reflections about goals and means, and the way many organizations become focused on means and forget what their mission is. Actually, the shock came when … Sigue leyendo

El plan estratégico y la hora de comer (II)

Casualmente me acabo de encontrar con mi amigo, que me ha comentado los resultados de la Junta de este mediodía. Han avanzado bastante, y lo cuento como me lo cuenta (en primera persona): – Se ha definido una Vicepresidencia de Organización y Calidad encargada de la definición de los procesos de la nueva organización. A … Sigue leyendo

El plan estratégico y la hora de comer

Hay cosas que se dicen medio en broma medio en serio, muchas de ellas mientras se comparte la comida con amigos y compañeros de trabajo. En los últimos días, un amigo (que por supuesto no trabaja en mi empresa) me cuenta que sus colegas y él están concibiendo un plan estratégico para dar la vuelta … Sigue leyendo

Say “tag”… I mean, “category”

Now isn’t it great :-). After yesterday’s reports that Oracle had brought its mind around the concept of social tagging (a nice harbinger for large corporates), here comes WordPress and changes the rules. Actually, what they’ve done is recognize that “tags” (or keywords) are not the same as “categories” (or taxonomies). In their own words, … Sigue leyendo

Folksonomies, keywords, tags, and ECM

Never say never: I didn’t hold them as a reference but I was evidently wrong. A colleague has just pointed me to a recent (July 2007) paper published by Oracle, and which can be found here, that discusses the concepts of tagging and folksonomies. It bridges (quite well) the gap with pre-web 2.0 taxonomy and … Sigue leyendo

Schumpeter y Arbonies en Pamplona

Y voy yo y me lo pierdo. Leo en el Diario de este domingo que esta semana (fecha sin precisar) se celebró un desayuno patrocinado por el ESIC y el propio diario, con ponencia de Angel Arboníes sobre “Nuevos enfoques en la innovación de producto”. Me lo habría perdido de todos modos porque sólo estoy … Sigue leyendo

A relevant webinar on Tuesday

I just found out, and I hope to find also time to attend: Forum One’s Bill Johnston, Intuit’s George Jacquette and Shared Insight’s Aaron Strout are hosting a WebEx webinar about online community management topics on September 25th. Go have a look at the topics covered, they may be interesting for you. They won’t be … Sigue leyendo

Google Presentations… in Plain English

Not bad. The people at Common Craft have actually managed to find another useful, collaboration-related topic that’s hard to explain and useful indeed. They’ve gone after Google Docs, the online suite of applications that enables not just productivity beyond the desk, but also very relevant collaboration possibilities. In many a sense, Google has built “groupware … Sigue leyendo

Live KM from Vietnam

Last time seen posting from western African villages, and just arrived at Vietnam: if you want a look into basic KM with a background of impressive photographs and some good stories, head over to the latest posts at Michelle Laurie’s blog. You won’t find deep analysis or new theories. But you can do worse than … Sigue leyendo

Now auditioning…

… for yet more projects :-). This is getting crowded and yet they come. Remember June? That was nothing. The previous betas are still on course or growing into services, alliances are being seeked (and some even struck, amazingly), contracts drawn, meetings attended, contacts rekindled, software installed and configured, servers fitted, best practice manuals come … Sigue leyendo

Ideas sobre fusiones

Aviso: este mensaje refleja exclusivamente la opinión de su autor, sin acceso a información privilegiada de ningún tipo. Pero qué quieres, después de leer este verano a Jack Welch hasta indigestarme, y de comparar con la experiencia de fusiones previas, hay cosas que no se quedan dentro. En lo que el comprador sigue revisando auditorías … Sigue leyendo

With the slandering populace

Nancy White shared a snippet and link on Friday (over at On-Fac mailing list) that’s worth commenting. http://www.theage.com.au/news/web/firm-sues-forum-to-silence-critics/2007/09/12/1189276778252.html Apparently a software firm down under (2Clix) is suing a forum where its products were being subject to very harsh criticism by many users. 2Clix claim to have asked the site to retire the offending posts, and … Sigue leyendo

Gestión del conocimiento en España (V)

Aprovechando que abrimos curso, vamos a ver lo que se mueve. En primer lugar, los materiales de Nancy White y sus diapositivas (borrador) para la presentación dada en Bogotá el 18 de Agosto pasado sobre Comunidades de Práctica y del conocimiento. Lástima de grabación :-), pero la presentación está muy bien documentada y toca muchos … Sigue leyendo

Using Open Source in a sensible business model

Even today, when so many companies and products are making their mark using Open Source as a fundamental part of their business models, I come across lots of people that find it incredible that this can happen or have a future. There is quite a lot of misunderstanding about the issue. Yesterday I remarked on … Sigue leyendo

How much do they spend on communities?

They’re at it again: the fellows at Forum One’s research outfit has produced a nice report, summarised in this interesting post. It gives definite answers and numbers on a few interesting issues, namely: – How much are companies saying they spend on “community”? (You’ll be surprised: they say it’s high). – Can they find the … Sigue leyendo

Post-vacational reading

Well… it had to happen. I’m back from the beach and there’s broadband and time to idle (well, not so much, these are the first ten minutes I can grab since yesterday morning :-)). So here’s a recap of interesting reading done while clearing back email. Hope you find it as interesting as myself. Open … Sigue leyendo
