    The 2 things for better cognitive load management

    In their prediction for the skills we’d be needing now, by 2020, the Institute for the Future identified Cognitive Load Management in the Top 10.

    It's about how we cope with all that information.

    But it’s not one thing; I see Cognitive Load Management involving 2 capabilities:

    🔹 To discriminate + filter information for importance, and

    🔸To understand how to maximize our cognitive function (using a variety of tools and techniques.)

    The answer is not about having a new app to manage, store or retrieve our own information better. We need to be able to firstly identify what’s important in the information we’re exposed to. And then we need to work with our own thinking, listening and sensemaking capabilities to handle that information better than we currently do.

    I’m helping teams (via 1/2 day workshops) and individuals (via 1:1 skills sessions online) to build skill and change the way they cope with information.

    It could be the best value session of your development program this year - being able to handle information better. What’s that worth to you?

    We can make information overload worse 

    To handle the never-ending flow of information we face, it’s useful realising that the way we currently do things could be making it harder for us to take in information with ease.

    We can be so wedded to the automated and habitual way we do tasks: thinking, prioritizing, decision making, listening, note taking and learning, that we’re often blinded to the benefits and potential of newer ways.

    This is why some newer ways of working are known as ... new ways of working. Of course!

    I see this when I'm working with people, helping them manage their cognitive load. We’re used to our preferences (and we defend them), when we’re reading a document or listening to a presentation for example, yet we struggle with information overload and its effects. The devil you know, right?

    We tolerate the inefficiency and discomfort of overload. Many people wrongly believe it would be too hard to learn a new way or the benefits wouldn't be worth the effort.

    But newer ways of working are revealing better, easier and more effective ways of tackling all that information. 

     Would you be willing to try some new techniques to handle information overload?

    Map your expertise

    Yesterday I lamented the waste of not knowing what people have experienced when they join the team. So here’s what to do: Map the expertise.

    Not a spreadsheet or a folder of resumes/CVs that no one will ever read. Make a map of your expertise and make it visible and available. I call them ‘experience maps’.

    1. Schedule an 'experience share' meeting now.

    2. Give people time to prepare their map.

    3. Everyone talks through what they’ve done and shows their experience map.

    4. The map lives on and can be updated over time.

    A learning-focused organisation sees the efficiency, and practicality of involving people to capture, hear and see the experience in the business. And then they leverage it. It’s wasteful, ignorant and unproductive not to.

    What about you? What skills or experience do you have that people wouldn’t know?

    Learning and Development

    L&D: does it stand for learning and development or long and drawn-out.

    Is it time for L&D to be more responsive, to lead the way in agility, experiments and lean solutions?

    I was speaking with an L&D team about running my ‘ish' workshop for the organisation - where people learn to challenge perfectionist tendencies and work until it's 'good enough', working in increments and iterations. The L&D team said, "Actually, WE need that!"

    Often an organisation’s learning program is embedded in an annual calendar; by the time the dates come around there’s other/better/more responsive things out there, the market has shifted, and the skills need has shifted. Does your organisation still work on an annual calendar? (Sure, a calendar works for availability, logistics and managing budget).

    Is it time to get more agility into L&D? How responsive is something that’s planned a year or more out? How does a team or project and the skills and capabilities they need change in that time?

    Could L&D run on shorter 90-day cycles for example, responding to the needs in the business and what’s happening in the market, offering stuff swiftly to build skills now, not in 365 days time?

    Retrospective: Look back with some structure and process

    The end of a project, calendar year or quarter and there can be lots to wrap up, finish up and look back at. 

    For some of us, things just keep on keeping on. The calendar or end of project may be irrelevant; perhaps there's not even a whiff of time to slow down to review anything. 

    When you do have a moment to pause, reflect, gather some thoughts or input or review in readiness for what's ahead, here's a little something for you. It's for you or for your team, unit, project, organisation...

     

    A Template for a Retrospective

    Retrospective. It's a word that comes from Latin roots meaning 'I look back at.'

    So get together and start looking back. That is, have a conversation or meeting to talk about what went well and what didn't go so well and how you can make the best of all of that. You don't need to dwell on it all for hours and hours; in fact this tool helps you take what happened and shift it forward for change. 

    Rather than a dull meeting based on vague questions or a meeting where loud mouths reign and interrupt quieter members of the team... here's a tool for you to lead the conversation with. 

     

    A Visual Focus

    The power of visuals in meetings, conversations and communication are undeniable. They help people hear each other, they help us focus, they help us stay on track because we can actually see the work to be done.

    Use this template to not only lead the meeting or conversation, but to capture some of the content that's contributed by the team.

    I've put together some instructions if you need 'em in a PDF here or a little video here

     

    Alone or together

    Whether you do it alone, in a team (or a family, yeah that's a great idea), with the project team or across units and divisions, spend just a little valuable time looking back and reviewing with a more formalised structure and process.

    A retrospective view helps give people the opportunity to contribute, to participate and voice their thoughts. Plus it gives you a rich trove of insights and sensemaking from which to do more or to make some changes and adapt for what's up next.
