How to make Knowledge Management Sexy Again

How to make Knowledge Management Sexy Again | Agile Learning |

Two articles surfaced recently that reinforce that point to how to make KM sexy again:

BBC – Did Minsky find the secret behind the financial crashes?

Time – Google’s flu project shows the failings of big data

If you want to make KM sexy again it means a shift in thinking!

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

The second article reference would probably cause Nassim Nicholas Taleb to say, of big data, "Of course!"  One of his quotes, "The fooled-by-data effect is accelerating. There is a nasty phenomenon called “Big Data” in which researchers have brought cherry-picking to an industrial level."

That said, I'm just back from the Knowledge Management Institute Showcase (next post) where "sensemaking" and combining narrative and social science methods was exactly what we were doing.  

My version of it, using "Open Space Technology" as a process technique to FRAME for enrichment, exchange, commitment will be in the next post.   ~  D

The Nature of the Future – Education & Change, Review by Harold Jarche

The Nature of the Future – Education & Change, Review by Harold Jarche | Agile Learning |

Marina Gorbis identifies unique human skills [that] should be the core of any public education program.

  • Sensemaking
  • Social and emotional intelligence
  • Novel and adaptive thinking
  • Moral and ethical reasoning

As Gorbis write... “Learning is Social”.

We need to learn how to work better with machines, letting machines do what they are good at.

Gorbis shows how machines and average people can outperform experts at playing chess. 

“Weak human + machine + better process

was superior to a strong computer alone

and, more remarkably,superior to a

strong human + machine + inferior process.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Sensemaking of MOOCs and adaptive learning.  Trust a smart process.  ~ Deb

It's not just the skills, it's the social and the process, lest all the talk about MOOCs and universities and skill training lead to engineering and accounting.  ~  Deb
