Last week we had the „Working Out Loud“ week – promoting this great approach of learning and improving, connecting, sharing and collaboration.
As mentioned in my articles before „Working Out Loud in practice“ and „WOL – der digitale Blick über die Schulter“ I really love this open concept and promote and drive it already for quite a while in our company across the globe. Due to my „absence“ – being in USA for our HR Conference, I was not able to give lot of input to this promotion week myself.
At the end of this article you can find a collection of links around „working out loud“!
Within the video, you can get a good introduction and the various views you can have into it:
Lessons Learned form this call:
Bringing people from various continents into one LIVE Google Hangout (Video conference) is sometimes not so easy. Germany 11:00 am, Australia 05:00 pm and for me, being at that time in South Carolina / USA it was 05:00 am in the morning. But it worked out with some technical issues. Of course the bandwidth in Germany was a problem and – since I only had my iPhone with me – I used the Google Hangout APP – there were some limitations. So I could not display the – so called „lower third“ with the name and Company and after I dropped out 45 Minutes later, I was able to re-connect – but no one could see or hear me anymore (which I did not know – since on my side everything looked normal) – I realized that only after I reviewed the video just now.
