How Private Social Networks Facilitate 21st Century Knowledge Management | Enterprise Social Network Blog - tibbr | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

By Babra Gago:

"The future of knowledge management is about letting employees curate their own information consumption, empowering them to be in charge of their own learning and professional development.

Conversations need to be indexed, but so do updates from processes, customer interactions, and news about related projects. External data needs to be brought in to enhance internal data, and people need to be able to act in real-time–not ask 5 different people for a file or wait until tomorrow because their manager is half-way across the world.

Information today needs to be searchable, and it needs to be accessible anytime, anywhere. Relevance is subjective, but 21st century knowledge management provides different experiences for everyone, adding the right conversations in context. This is the power private social networks can provide.

You can categorize content all you want trying to make it more contextual to different groups of people, but at the end of the day, I know what I need to do my job well. With private social networking, I can follow the people I need to follow, search for subject matter experts that can help, get updates from the business applications I use, and tap into the on-going conversations happening around me, so I can spend less time in meetings, searching for files, or waiting for the answers I need to do my job more effectively."

Why Knowledge Management has Failed & Enterprise Social Should Replace Email | Enterprise Social Network Blog

Why Knowledge Management has Failed & Enterprise Social Should Replace Email | Enterprise Social Network Blog | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

posted by Emilie Doolittle:

In an interview with McKinsey Quarterly (http://www.mckinseyquarterly.com/Organization/Strategic_Organization/Making_internal_collaboration_work_An_interview_with_Don_Tapscott_3052) , Don Tapscott, an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto, describes why knowledge management requires replacing email with microblogs and enterprise social networking platforms.

“Knowledge management has failed,” Don says. “We had this view that knowledge is a finite asset, it’s inside the boundaries of companies, and you manage it by containerizing it.”

“Knowledge is an infinite resource,” Don says. “You don’t achieve it through containerization, you achieve it through collaboration.”

Moving beyond email and file systems, social platforms are the collaborative tools enabling affective knowledge management. More robust platforms allow knowledge sharing, ideation and project collaboration to happen across systems and applications.

"Social networking in the enterprise has great potential to enhance knowledge management and collaboration systems. But to understand what the true potential is, we need to clarify what we mean when we say “Enterprise Social Networking.” In my experience, there is a lot of confusion out there, with some IT executives feeling pressured to implement social tools when they don’t see the value."
