Knowledge, Learning, Community
Interesting post describing "seven principles that work together to make the most of collective knowledge in conference settings as well as in-house meetings."
- get connected to each other before trying to construct new ideas together
- organize in circles. "Circles represent unity. They help individuals in the group view themselves as part of the whole."
- "Learn in small groups – integrate knowledge in large groups"
- diverge first, then converge. "Without time for divergence the many differences within a group are not expressed and without their expression they cannot be made use of by the group."
- Experts from outside "can provide much needed cognitive diversity, but experts cannot provide solutions."
- "Connect new ideas to what knowledge workers already know"
- Put ideas into words, into action "puts an idea together in a way that allows him or her to explain the idea to others, that the idea takes shape."
