Knowledge Management is... INTEGRATED (Visual)

Knowledge Management is... INTEGRATED (Visual) | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Posted by David Griffiths

"This week I was asked by a large EU corporate client to put together a visual that could be shown to their Senior Management Team to illustrate the integrated nature of KM activities – with an emphasis on KM being more than just SharePoint.

This was the response and I am sharing it in the hope that it might be of use to those struggling to move away from the more traditional IT-centric view of KM."

The integrated nature of KM activities > not only IT-centred!

Social media engages employees and increases productivity, according to Deloitte’s Centre for the Edge - WhaTech

by Jennifer Germano:

"Peter Williams, Deloitte’s Chief Edge Officer, said even though the average Australian spends around 22 hours using social media each week, many organisations are unaware how the smart use of these skills can improve productivity and engagement.

The recently released report, Rethinking social media: Building the social organisation through HR, produced by the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) and Deloitte’s Centre for the Edge, examines social media usage by HR practitioners.

“Social media is becoming increasingly important as a way of building an organisation’s social capital” (refer definition below), said Mr Williams. “Social tools help organisations connect networks of people, promote idea sharing among their employees and drives innovation. Tapping into the collective wisdom of an employee base can help an organisation ‘know what it knows’ more quickly than relying on more traditional knowledge management systems.”

Karen du Toit's insight:

Social media to be harnessed in organisations. Even better than traditional knowledge management systems!

Why do I need KM? | Harold Jarche

Why do I need KM? | Harold Jarche | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Why Do I Need Knowledge Management asks @HaroldJarche http://t.co/yGSKbwI2Ac PKM skills are now vital

 

"In response to my post on relevance, my long-time friend Ralph Mercer asked, “Why do I need KM at an institutional level when information is ambient at a global level and personal at a hyper local level?” This illuminates an observation made by Thierry deBaillon, which I have often quoted, “The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” We are surrounded by information and have many ways to collaborate, but unless each person has effective sense-making processes, social business networks are mostly noise amplification.

Collaborative knowledge work must be coupled with cooperative knowledge sharing. Cooperation, or sharing without any quid pro quo, is the foundation of personal knowledge management. PKM is based on playfully seeking knowledge, not task-driven searching. It is also about sharing to inspire, not because you have to. The results of PKM can then be used in collaborative work."

To [...] 

"articulate the value of knowledge management in less than 230 words.

If you prescribe to the concepts of Tacit and Explicit knowledge, then you’ll appreciate that not everything can be documented or added to a knowledge base. The lemonade stand scenario was able to reflect situations that could occur if key expertise was to exit organisations. Below is an explanation of the rational behind some of our other inclusions:

 

1. Knowledge Health Check
2. Lessons Learned
3. Collaboration
4. Technology"

Knowledge management and community – a free virtual issue of JASIST | Exchanges | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"JASIST, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, has published a wealth of scholarly papers on knowledge development, knowledge sharing, communities of practice over the years and other KM-relevant topics.  We reproduce here a recent Virtual Issue covering in particular the theme of knowledge management within a community.

There is a substantial body of knowledge management (KM) literature that deals with how individuals and groups develop knowledge and share it within different organizational structures. Along with a sampling of such studies, we also present others that touch upon how these communities exchange knowledge in interdisciplinary collaborations, what behaviors and intentions with respect to knowledge sharing (KS) and knowledge consumption they exhibit, what individual motivations they might have when sharing knowledge online, how communities of practice use technology, and how knowledge sources can influence KS. We similarly include papers on the application of these KM ideas and frameworks to other fields of study.  (See full editorial for this Virtual Issue here)."
