Brainstorming around Smart Work

IBM’s holding another one of its awesome collaboration jams (72-hour web-based brainstorming/discussion), this time on Smart Work.

I’m passionate about helping people connect and collaborate. All the topics highlighted are things I’m deeply interested in: teams, Gen Y, collaboration…. After I get through my 9-12 AM leadership development class (whee!), I’m looking forward to joining the Jam.

Anyway, I was inspired to make this:

There’s so much more to say, but I still have to figure out how to say it… =)

Join us for the Jam and/or the videocast!

  • I liked the slide show! Well done explanation. :)

  • Slides 20-22 talk about the effects of social networks on early adopters. Are you familiar with research specifically on this and where I could find it? Thanks…

  • Hi Sacha,

    I am in the process of educating myself on the all the social media. I loved your presentation, the graphics and the change theory behind it. As an business and life coach, I understand change….what I am having to learn is how it relates to the technology and my work.

    Thanks for a flip chart friendly way of showing me how I might make this work for me. I am all about living an awesome life and smart work!

  • Hi Sacha…

    Really enjoyed your slideshow today on why social media matters. What you offer is a great example of clarity in what often feels like a very, very complicated part of our world.

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve already passed it along to many of my co-workers.

  • I just love your presentation. Stick figures, hand written text, no flashy animation, yet so clear and entertaining at the same time! I work on developing explanations, and I like to show this one as one of the best examples I know. (I especially like the ghost illustration!) Bravo!

  • I’m glad you like it, Astrid! You may also enjoy the Commoncraft videos, if you haven’t seen them yet – they do the “In Plain English” series.

    Another entertaining approach (though impossible to do in real time!) is shown in the RSA Animate videos illustrating short talks that sponsors by various interesting folks. is a link to an example based on a presentation from Dan Pink summarizing his new book, Drive.
