Knowledge has no power unless it has been shared!

Gina Gilbert's curator insight, April 14, 2015 2:54 AM

Highlights why the climate of an organisation is important (in terms of overcoming barriers to knowledge sharing). Hiding knowledge is not found to be beneficial to fostering creativity.

Yoke Wong's curator insight, April 14, 2015 9:26 AM

The importance of a supportive organisational culture. Knowledge hoarding behaviour just doesn’t pay. Missed opportunities of knowledge being expanded … and risk forming tunnel vision.

Learning-by-doing is a good way to transfer knowledge.  The key is to transform the knowledge to fix its own culture and context.

Dick Cheuk's curator insight, June 21, 2013 2:36 AM

Not all knowledge values the same so I like the point "Organizations need to know what they need to know before determining how best to manage it."  And this needs to be done bottom up.

Tom Hood's comment, April 3, 2013 7:34 AM
This has been my experience with social media as a tool for sharing and collaboration. It has created that "serendipitous insight' that allows me to connect the dots more easily and make great friends in the process. "As we share our knowledge more openly with each other, our world becomes more connected, which can lead to greater recognition of our diversity and our common humanity – ultimately leading to greater understanding, and hopefully a world of greater harmony. "
Tom Hood's curator insight, April 3, 2013 7:38 AM

Leadership is about connecting and collaborating. The number 1 slill identified by IBM's Global 2013 CEO study is collaboration. It is also one of the top five comoetencies for CPAs in the future from the CPA Horizons 2025 report. Sharing knowledge has been my experience with social media as a tool for sharing and collaboration. It has created that "serendipitous insight' that allows me to connect the dots more easily and make great friends in the process.                                                                                                      I like this quote in the article, "As we share our knowledge more openly with each other, our world becomes more connected, which can lead to greater recognition of our diversity and our common humanity – ultimately leading to greater understanding, and hopefully a world of greater harmony."



Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 3, 2013 6:14 PM

We need to continue to develop effective ways to share knowledge.

Eight Dangers of Collaboration

Eight Dangers of Collaboration | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Most of what is written about collaboration is positive. Even hip. Collaboration is championed enthusiastically by the Enterprise 2.0 experts, as well as leading thinkers like Don Tapscott, as the crucial approach for the 21st century.

Via Dick Cheuk, Brad Abbott
David Hain's insight:

Sound sense.  It's often portrayed as "four legs good, 2 legs bad". But the cost of poorly thought out collaboration is high and only breeds cynicsm against the best reasons for applying collaborative methods.  Also, collaboration takes more than one form and the method should be chosn carefully for the problem and context.

Dick Cheuk's curator insight, December 27, 2012 5:41 PM

These three parts presentation slides show how organisations can better use social media to help their people sharing their knowledge.  One point I like about what they suggested is they see social media not as individual tool but a collective tools to do KM.  Some organisations use social media separately: a blog is a blog and a wiki is a wiki.  The power of social media only can be seen when they are used in a mix and match style that suit your needs.

 

The other important point they made is knowledge management is not about capturing knowledge and put it somewhere, but to connect the knowledge seekers and knowledge providers.  Knowledge is only valuable when being used.

Pavlos Nomikos's curator insight, January 7, 2013 8:50 AM

Social Learning and Knowledge Management

Social Learning and Knowledge Management | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
For about five years around the turn of the century most of my days were spent helping clients manage their knowledge. Back in 2000 knowledge management (KM) was really big. Every year I’d head off to Amsterdam for the obligatory industry conference, KM Europe. We even had our own home grown conference, KM UK, with pretty much the same people but with less impressive venues. Then suddenly things went quiet – KM Europe was suddenly cancelled in 2005, KM UK limped along (and is still going today). KM had lost its way. The promises hadn’t been fulfilled. Of course KM just didn’t disappear overnight – it just degraded gracefully. One client, a very large UK multinational, shed their KM teams and announced that KM was now ‘embedded in the business’.

KM still goes on but it’s likely to be on the margins and not essential for peak organisational performance whereas in 2000 KM really was positioned as a game changer.

So what happened?
