Jay Cross recently mentioned in his Learning Blog a Harvard Business blog post by John Hagel III, John Seely Brown, and Lang Davison about The Collaboration Curve.  I was struck by this statement from their article:

…the more participants–and interactions between those participants–you add to a carefully designed and nurtured environment, the more the rate of performance improvement goes up

This is why Questionmark Live is so important. Think of it as crowdsourcing content from participants who may previously  have been indifferent to the assessment process within your organization. As participation and collaboration increases, the quality of your questions will improve and become far more job-relevant. Look at the following quote from our friends at the Harvard School of Business and replace collaboration curves with Questionmark Live.

Collaboration curves hold the potential to mobilize larger and more diverse groups of participants to innovate and create new value.

Questionmark Live is a vital tool in the creation of a true learnscape.
