g-f(2)280 The Big Picture of the Digital Age (5/18/2021), MIT SMR, What Happens if ‘Absorbing by Observation’ Disappears?



Extra-condensed knowledge


  • The way we work is changing, and the way knowledge is shared inside of companies will need to adjust. Here are two creative ways I have seen the induction of joiners playing out.
    • Innovate with technology. It’s a given that companies are now innovating with technology. Take, for example, consulting firm PwC, which has used platforms and virtual reality to help onboard the over 1,300 new hires that began working at its U.K. offices in the past year.
    • Curate interactions. I’ve been fascinated by how CEO Christy Johnson leads the Seattle-based virtual strategy consulting practice Artemis Connection — and no more so than how new members are introduced to the company.
  • We are only just beginning on our journey of creating practices and processes that help new joiners understand their organization’s culture and build tacit knowledge. 
    • The experiences of Brown and Johnson show what could be possible.
  • Here are my three takeaways.
    1. First, developing knowledge beyond what’s found in formal training is crucial for new joiners, and as we shift our ways of working, we need to keep sight of this. 
    2. Second, the observed/observing metric is one worth measuring.
    3. Third, being in “the room where it happens” is a very valuable experience.
