Why do we fail to get out the most applicable ideas? Why do ideas languish in fading memories, repositories or hard drives? <br><br> The answer to these issues is conversation. Conversation-based knowledge-exchange holds the promise that diverse voices will co-create insight in an emergent way. <br><br> But conversation isn&#039;t always productive. At Columbia University Information and Knowledge Strategy Master&#039;s program, we saw that first hand. <br><br> By introducing the "Four Discussion Discipline" model, however, we demonstrably improved the productivity of conversation. The Four Disciplines -- Integrity, Courtesy, Inclusion and Translation – make conversation both more generative and more actionable. <br><br> Published in <a href="" target="_blank">Smarter Innovation</a> in a research project for Motorola Solutions, who deployed an enterprise social media instance, we found that the Integrity and Courtesy disciplines correlated with lifts in community-building, whereas the Inclusion and Translation disciplines correlated with idea-expansion and innovation. <br><br> And, the existence of all four online discussions improved productivity across the board. <br><br> At the London Knowledge Caf&eacute;, we hope to have a lively discussion about how Integrity, Courtesy, Inclusion and Translation figure all of our practices – from online discussions, to knowledge cafes, to team meetings, and to innovation jams. <br><br> <b>Sponsor: </b>Keith Patrick, Westminster Business School <br><br> <b>Venue:</b> <br> University of Westminster <br> Westminster Business School <br> Marylebone Campus <br> 35 Marylebone Rd <br> London NW1 5LS <br><br> <b>Room: </b>MG14 on the Ground Floor <br><br> <b> Map and directions: </b> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> <br><br> Opposite Baker St Station and Madame Tussards <br><br> <div style="text-align:center;"> <iframe width="640" height="480" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src=";f=q&amp;hl=en&amp;geocode=&amp;q=University+of+Westminster,+35+Marylebone+Road,+London&amp;aq=&amp;sll=51.524232,-0.136857&amp;sspn=0.016635,0.01884&amp;dirflg=w&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;hq=&amp;hnear=35+Marylebone+Rd,+London,+Greater+London+NW1+5LS,+United+Kingdom&amp;t=m&amp;ll=51.525941,-0.155439&amp;spn=0.012816,0.027466&amp;z=15&amp;iwloc=A&amp;output=embed"></iframe><br /><small><a href=";f=q&amp;hl=en&amp;geocode=&amp;q=University+of+Westminster,+35+Marylebone+Road,+London&amp;aq=&amp;sll=51.524232,-0.136857&amp;sspn=0.016635,0.01884&amp;dirflg=w&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;hq=&amp;hnear=35+Marylebone+Rd,+London,+Greater+London+NW1+5LS,+United+Kingdom&amp;t=m&amp;ll=51.525941,-0.155439&amp;spn=0.012816,0.027466&amp;z=15&amp;iwloc=A" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small> </div> <br><br> <div style="text-align:center;"> <button name ='register' style="width:190; height:80; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: bold;" type='button' onclick= 'javascript:Booking("Generative+Conversation+03+March+2017","_blank",600,400,"resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=yes,menubar=yes,status=yes,location=yes,directories=yes"); ' style='font-family: Arial;font-size: 10px;' >Register for a place on this event or cancel an existing booking</button> </div> 9B4AB2862C4E631A802580BC002CC782 Fri, 10 Feb 2017 07:12:46 +0000 David Gurteen KM UK 2017 Link: <a href="">Gurteen Knowledge</a><br>Date: 14 - 15 Jun 2017<br>Organizer: Ark Group<br>Location: London, United Kingdom<br><br> 8026D22FC3C0817680257911002FD541 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 10:02:08 +0000 David Gurteen KM: The Scores Link: <a href="">Gurteen Knowledge</a><br>Date: Mon 27 Feb 2017<br>Organizer: Helene Russell, TheKnowledgeBusiness<br>Location: London, United Kingdom<br><br>Learn about KM measurement from the author of "KM Handbook" and "Practical Projects in Legal KM", and contributor to Ark's "Measuring the ROI of KM" second edition.<br> This afternoon workshop will give you all the theory you need, digested into practical advice, and also give plenty of scope for putting the theory into practice with examples and discussions.<br> Learn how to avoid gaming, balance your measurements and find the right measurements for the right projects, so that you can more easily work out which projects are giving you the right ROI.<br> Leave ready to implement practical and workable measurement systems for your KM projects straightaway. 84CE7E77F6201B3B802580B50050DEE2 Mon, 30 Jan 2017 09:00:32 +0000 David Gurteen Utilising Blockchain Technologies in Financial Markets Link: <a href="">Gurteen Knowledge</a><br>Date: Tue 20 Jun 2017<br>Organizer: Chloe Bogo<br>Location: London, United Kingdom<br><br><p>Since its inception, Blockchain has dominated the news due to its extensive potential. Originally mentioned in conjunction with Bitcoin, since then, some of the core focus has shifted towards looking more closely at Blockchain which is the distributed database behind Bitcoin used as the ledger for transactions.<br />Unlike the volatile Bitcoin, the technology behind the digital currency offers users an abundance of opportunities away from its original use, and the promise of a lucrative reward if implemented correctly.<br />Quick to explore further, financial companies grow increasingly keen to find out more about Blockchain and how to implement it within their industry; both as an attractive alternative for new clients as well as a tool for regulatory compliance.<br />The sessions will include an introductory discussion on understanding the basics of blockchain; what it is and how it works before providing delegates with exclusive insight on how your firm can prepare and utilise blockchain, accompanied by various case studies.<br />Following lunch, the next session will focus on the current regulation around blockchain, the conceivable restrictions as well as the potential benefit to get around capital constraints. In the final session, delegates will get a chance to hear an interactive panel discussion between thought leaders and early implementers of blockchain.<br />Risk is delighted to announce its very first Blockchain Seminar in this new, one day style format. Attendees of all levels of blockchain sophistication are welcome, giving delegates an ideal platform to discuss and assess the value of blockchain for their company as we enter the era of Finance 2.0.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 13B62A5BB98E27FA802580CA004B6A67 Mon, 20 Feb 2017 08:55:25 +0000 David Gurteen
