I think this is called a precis review. Synthesize, synthesize.
My Working Out Loud pecha kucha – Go!
- I am a (self-appointed) corporate disorganizer, and one way I experiment in this role is by…
- working out loud, trying to make my tacit knowledge explicit.
- I set up shop under the stairs at work, connected a projector to my laptop, and began to work and to share.
- I am positing that “share is the new save” – we have enough data, we need more sensemaking.
- Under the stairs I unSquirreled by personal knowledge – all low hanging fruit
- All content filtered by asking “How can I help (my network)?” I had 15+ rich, diverse conversations that I would not have otherwise had
- The product was 2 pecha kuchas every day at 1130 and 1330, on topics wide and narrow, near and far.
- The goal is not to change the world, it is to reach people where they are, often individuals
- We have to start somewhere, like presenting to one person, Fred, and letting that conversation guide the iteration
- Because you do not know what will be useful to whom until you begin, there are unknowns unknowns! I invited everyone, and 30% of the office turned up…
- Is working out loud “productive”? If “work is the learning and learning is the work (after @hjarche), then yes, it is core.
- It was not easy, it was a big challenge, and often I became discombobulated. Hopefully, it was entertaining…
- The sharing, asking how can I help? – this is not egotistical.
- Indeed, working out loud is an act of generosity.
- The learning synthesis loop – try, learn, adapt – means I wanted to share my learning widely, online
- People in my network ran a working out loud week – #WOLweek – to test this out in a larger group
- Working and sharing beyond the firewall is the next challenge. Many of us are disorganizing, we should have a #ResponsiveCoffee!
- I learned the critical piece of working out loud is put people > process; make work as human(e) as possible
- I produced this pecha kucha by working out loud too – maybe too meta? Decide for yourself – #PKyvr33
- I know a few things, maybe this much. There is much to (un/re)learn! Working out loud helps. Let’s connect, so I can ask you How can I help?
You wanna watch me present, right? Go ahead…
