706 Show Your Work: A Management Perspective
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 31
Narrating our work—also known in some circles as “working out loud”—is getting a lot of attention lately as it offers great potential for connecting talent pools and capturing tacit knowledge, reducing rework and duplication of effort and maybe even meetings. While there is a lot of discussion around the value showing your work provides in the context of learning, there’s less clarity around how showing your work provides value to a business or organization.
In this session you will explore the value of narrating work from the point of view of management. You will discuss what it means to narrate your work in an organizational context. You will discover why this is critical to business outcomes and how organizations can encourage more people to narrate their work. You will leave this session understanding when to support showing work in the ever-challenging quest for surfacing organizational knowledge.
In this session, you will learn:
- A clearer view of what “showing work” means
- Ideas for choosing what to share and when
- Tips for identifying the most appropriate tools for narrating work
- Strategies for ensuring success at helping workers successfully show their work—and avoiding mistakes and pitfalls
Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
