What did Confucius know about Knowledge Management? - by Chris Collison

What did Confucius know about Knowledge Management? - by Chris Collison | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
Confucius is the next in my series of famous leaders on knowledge management, although he spoke much more about learning and wisdom than knowledge itself.Confucius introduced three key virtues:  Ré

Rén, Li and Yi.

Rén relates to humanity, and the relationships between two people. It causes people to remember that they is never alone, and that everyone has these relationships to fall back on, being a member of a family, the state, and the world.

(Or a network, I’m sure we could add today)

Li consists of the norms of proper social behaviour as taught to others by fathers, village elders and government officials. The teachings of li promoted ideals such as brotherliness, righteousness, good faith and loyalty. The influence of li guided public expectations, such as the loyalty to superiors and respect for elders.  Li is sometimes describes as “the way things society expects things to be”.

Finally. Yi is an internal controller which gives the person the ability to make right judgments about the people and situations and to react accordingly. Confucius stated that truth can be hidden sometimes and most common reaction to the situation is not always the best one and the possession of Yi principle helps to define the true nature of things.

What did Einstein know about Knowledge Management?

What did Einstein know about Knowledge Management? | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

By Chris Collison:

"...top ten favourite “Einstein on KM” quotes, which have been roughly curated into a journey from information to knowledge, through to learning and simplicity, experimentation, failure, curiosity and imagination…

Information is not knowledge.The only source of knowledge is experience.Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination."

What did Da Vinci know about Knowledge Management? - Chris Collison

What did Da Vinci know about Knowledge Management? - Chris Collison | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Posted by Chris Collison:

"My post on “What did Einstein know about KM” last week seemed to go down well, so I have continued my search for KM musings from great figures.

This week, we’ll hear from the Leonardo Da Vinci.  It wasn’t until I read Gelb’s ambitiously titled book “How to think like Leonardo do Vinci” that I appreciated just how multi-talented he was.  Painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, writer and no mean athlete  - you name it, he could do it.  Curious then that one of his quotations (one of the few which I disagree with) states “As every divided kingdom falls, so every mind divided between many studies confounds and saps itself.“.  I guess you can make yourself an exception  when you’re the archetypal Renaissance Man Polymath.
I wonder what he would have made of the ubiquitous availability of information and possibilities which we enjoy today?

So my curated top-ten quotes from Da Vinci will take us on a journey through different facets of KM: from knowledge acquisition, the way our perceptions filter knowledge, the superiority of expertise over opinions, the power of learning, seeing and making connections, the challenge and value of expressing knowledge simply and the criticality of seeing knowledge applied."
