What Are the Required Skills for Today's Digital Workforce? - Dion Hinchcliffe

What Are the Required Skills for Today's Digital Workforce? - Dion Hinchcliffe | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Are there new ways to think about our digital workplace skills that allows us to take our thinking up to a new plane, the next meta-level of thinking and working where we have much higher leverage, can manage change that is an order of magnitude or greater in volume than today, work in fundamentally better and smarter new ways — and perhaps even work a bit less — yet produce much more value?

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"

By David Gurteen:
"Many years ago when I worked at Lotus Development we had a similar yearly review system to the one described in this article The Poisonous Employee-Ranking System That Helps Explain Microsoft's Decline.

I hated it then, mainly as it was gamed, long before I fully realised the consequences and its impact on knowledge sharing and collaborative behaviours. "

Use of Deming's [...] fourteen key principles for management for transforming business effectiveness.

Making Organizational Learning Stick: How to Set Your Knowledge Goals and Blend Technology and People Processes to Reach Them

Making Organizational Learning Stick: How to Set Your Knowledge Goals and Blend Technology and People Processes to Reach Them | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

WRITTEN BY KATIE SMITH MILWAY AND ANN GOGGINS GREGORY:

 

"Henry Ford once observed, “Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” This is as true for nonprofit organizations as it is for individuals.

 

[...] look at effective blends of people and technology processes to achieve each of the four goals. While they all require a mix of approaches, two goals—idea generation and collaboration—lead with people, while technology often comes first to support good practices and external influence. "

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."

Yessss - totally agree. Knowledge management today is about putting people in the center of knowledge management - not documents/wikis/blogs. Knowledge sharing requires trust, which is built in personal conversations and relationships. www.experience-network.org
