  • Making a start on digitalness – digital behaviours are simple but hard

    Slightly warily, I am considering a series of posts on one theme. The theme is ‘making a start on digitalness’. I am wary because I have started this kind of project before and lost momentum. I am considering another attempt for this topic. In drafting this idea as one post I became lost in notes […]

  • Sticky is (still) a good thing

    The phrase “sticky website” feels like something of a throwback to me. I remember first hearing the phrase and debating it as a product objective when I worked in the search industry. At the time Ask Jeeves (yes, I am that old) was popular and well used but not habitually used. Search was and still is […]

  • A digital echo of a missing friend

    I have paused my work to record a moment of my social media day. It’s one of those moments where technology, data (or the lack of it) and commercial imperatives combine to create an unintended jarring moment. Over a desk picnic, I was endorsing friends and colleagues on LinkedIn. I am happy to do this and […]

  • Face to face and anonymous – Sli.do and sliding

It was really refreshing in […]

    Another dose of shameless self-promotion here. I do think there is a purpose though, so bear with me… In a few weeks I am presenting at the CDO Forum on the topic of “Developing a Digital Learning Service for the New Workplace”. As you can see from the agenda, this is not an eLearning or L&D event. […]

  • Defining digital or what it isn’t. Not easy…

    First an admission. Around 18 months ago I was tasked by my boss to offer a smart and easy answer to the question “what do we mean by digital”? The question was asked in the context of creating a digital learning service. I admit that I have, as yet, not completed this task. This is […]

  • Practice but not (I suspect) perfect

    During the course of the last few weeks, I have attended a few conferences and seminars, both as delegate and presenter. They have been interesting and thought provoking events. At each, I have been invited to share and consider best practice. To offer stories about how things have been done well and to consider stories […]
