Our keynote presentation was by Harold Jarche, international specialist in networks, social learning and leadership. Harold took us through:
- the difference between different domains of activity: simple, complicated, complex and chaotic. Each requires a different approach blending networks and hierarchies
- the importance of developing our personal capacity to manage knowledge
- a model of different network types ... those for action, sharing practices, and connecting more widely
- the roles of network weaving, facilitating and coordinating in building and supporting networks
- the importance of trust
- cities as physical nodes in multiple knowledge networks
- making decisions in networks
- the idea of value network analysis
In this presentation Harold starts at 1' 40", after my introduction. You can find a blog post here on the model of network types.
During our lunch break I was able to interview Harold on the key points.
Harold has just started one of his online workshops: details here.
