Some more (social media) predictions for 2010

Following on from my earlier post, here are some more predictions for 2010:

  1. Fresh Networks has a posting about 2010: Community Management predictions: "What will community managers be talking about? What legal changes are
    bubbling away? We asked some fantastic community managers for their
    2010 predictions, and if their thinking comes true, 2010 is going to be
    a very exciting year."
  2. Bersin & Associates have a posting which summarises their 12 Predictions for Corporate Learning & Talent Management in 2010, one of which is "Learning management systems will remain important but evolve rapidly
    into talent and informal systems.  Collaboration and content management
    will drive the next major evolution in learning technology"
  3. In November 2009 Richard Nantel of Brandon Hall Research listed Reness Robbins' 10 Predictions for How Social Media Will Impact Learning in 2010. More of the same but Google Wave's on the list
  4. Michael Stephens has provided his Predictions for Social Technologies & Libraries in 2010, inlcuding "Libraries will become community leaders in teaching social tools".
  5. Back in October 2009, Jennifer Leggio, on the ZDNet Social Business blog, provided a list of 40 people's predictions in her posting: 2010 Predictions: Will social media reach ubiquity? For instance Jeffrey Dachis of the Dachis Groups says "As businesses begin to realize the power of becoming more socially calibrated dynamic organizations, cross function/ cross platform social business metrics and analytics will begin to take shape and drive meaningful discussion around creating real value."

    The truth is that most organisations NEED to use both techniques.

    Defined programs, courses, qualifications etc. invariably demand the training approach as it is easy to specify and assess the outcomes. However, everyone is dependant upon the nature and quality of the specified program and the formal delivery strategies – and we are all familiar with the failings here. These failings are exacerbated by the funding strategies which demand that everyone who signs on completes and passes, thus further undermining any impartial and objective assessment of the learning attained..

    Whilst many employers complain that they do not have “smart workers”, the environment they maintain serves to make such behaviour impossible or it goes unrewarded or even punished thus stamping out any moves longer term in that direction.

    In the competitive, aggressive, dog-eat-dog over-worked environments where knowledge is power, the biggest barrier to the “smart worker” and non-training development is culture, environment and attitude. However, if organisations are to survive in the current economic environment, there has never been a greater need for the application of smart attitudes and practices.
