This week was all about the lead up to Easter. Although I’m not religious by any stretch of the imagination, it’s the one holiday that I can’t ever imagine being away from family. I can travel overseas during Christmas but Easter is sacrosanct for family.
So this week, while my days were spent working on conducting more interviews to get an understanding of the business needs around how to enable their people to become continual learners, after hours were spent planning and preparing food for Easter Sunday.
There is much I’d like to share about the work that I am doing especially my process for how I’m going about to identify user cases in the organisation to pilot the new curation and social collaboration platform that has been implemented recently. As the organisation uses different platforms all doing similar things, I’m exploring ways where this new platform may be particularly suited and what support may be needed to help guide people to use it for those specific needs.
You all know my stance about not forcing people to use social platforms so in a way, I’m now working backwards to retrofit and find specific groups where this platform would be well suited and then consider what training needs to happen. It’s not ideal but it’s a nice challenge. In the process, I’ve identified a much wider scope of work that goes beyond the focus of the platform itself to building a Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM) capability across the wider organisation.
I’ve been blogging my process inside the company and realise that my work will be invisible to the outside world. However, I’m using the same process as I do any performance consulting work – and I have written about this work in this blog in various articles around Analysing Performance Needs. So even though the process is the same – what comes out of it are different results and outputs.
However, enough about that. Let’s get on with what has happened this week…

In this post, it’s Work Out Loud Wednesday and I encourage people to show and share their work at their workplace on their enterprise social network. I give one example where I used the All Company feed on Yammer (an ESN) to share a problem I was working on how to measure value in online communities. It started a conversation across the business and identified two people who had worked on this issue previously on two communities of practices they built. They were quite happy to share their findings and their model with me which in turn saved time for me. This was a working out loud win!
Other Snapchat stories were more personal in nature this week as I shared stories of what we do as a family over Easter.
