Managing Social Communications | Project Management Tips || Project Management, Collaboration and Knowledge Management Blog

Managing Social Communications | Project Management Tips || Project Management, Collaboration and Knowledge Management Blog | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

"We’ve all seen business stakeholders on their smart phones in meetings or sponsors who whip out their iPads in project board meetings. But is this really productive? And do project managers need to be in on it too?

In a new book released in September, The Handbook of People in Project Management, I explore what social communications are and how project managers can tap into social communications to improve the collaboration on their projects. Here’s a brief introduction to social communications in a project environment.

Introducing social communications

Humans are sociable creatures, and we’ve been finding ways to interact with each other for thousands of years. In that respect, social communication is not new. However, the tools in use this century make a big difference to the way in which we can communicate and collaborate with others.

Social communications are exactly that – communicating and collaborating with purpose. In a work environment it’s not about sharing funny pictures of cats or telling the world what you had for lunch. It’s about using web-enabled technology to get things done more effectively, tapping into the way people are running their lives outside of your project team.

Ultimately, for project management professionals, it’s about doing things the way that other people are doing them and being easy to do business with. A project manager who insists on monthly status updates on a complicated slide template is not going to be popular with stakeholders who can get real-time information that displays clearly on their smart phone screens on any other topic except your project."

(This is an edited excerpt, reprinted by permission of the publishers from ‘Managing Social Communications’ in The Gower Handbook of People in Project Management, edited by Dennis Lock and Lindsay Scott (Farnham, Gower, 2013)."

Knowledge Management and Intellectual Capital Excellence Awards 2015: An Anthology of Case Histories

Knowledge Management and Intellectual Capital Excellence Awards 2015: An Anthology of Case Histories | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Eight examples of the application of knowledge management and intellectual capital principles are described in the case histories presented in this book. These case histories have been chosen by a panel of international experts from 70 case histories submitted to a competition for the Knowledge Management and Intellectual Capital Excellence Awards conducted by Academic Conferences and Publishing International. The authors of these eight examples have been short listed and invited to present their case history at the 16th annual European Conference on Knowledge Management (ECKM) held at the University of Udine in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia (near Venice), Italy in September 2015. The best three case studies will be awarded a prize at the conference.

I will have to look into this book to see whether it meets my needs. My organization has an interest in both aspects of KM and e-learning, for internal purposes as well as our constituents and customers.
