Corporate Memory and Personal Knowledge Management – A Dichotomy? | Communities and Collaboration

Corporate Memory and Personal Knowledge Management – A Dichotomy? | Communities and Collaboration | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it

Steve Dale:

"I was recently asked to give a talk to a breakfast meeting of the Managing Partners’ Forum (MPF). The focus of the talk was around the possible dichotomy (or misalignment) of the development needs of the individual and the demands of the organisation they work for. At times these needs align, sometimes they need to be reconciled and at other times they diverge. Nothing radical in that statement, but does the organisation believe there is an asset value in the personal networks that the employee develops, maintains, cultivates and nurtures whilst on the payroll, and if so, does it exploit it at the expense or detriment to the employee?  

These networks are increasingly likely to traverse the boundaries of the organisations’ directly employed staff, and embrace customers, stakeholders, partners and even competitors. This is what the much-hyped term “Social Business” is really all about. - See more at: http://steve-dale.net/2013/11/29/corporate-memory-and-personal-knowledge-management-a-dichotomy/#sthash.APKZPdf1.dpuf

Social Media vs. Knowledge Management - Prenen Management Consulting

Eric Prenen:

If social media is not knowledge management, then you need a different approach to create value out of social media — you need to become a social organization.  Anthony Bradley and myself have been looking at this, as we have seen more than our share of social media as next generation knowledge management fail to yield results.

Answering the question of, how do organizations gain value from social media, particularly in situations here they have not been successful with knowledge management rests in a new view of collaboration — mass collaboration.

Mass collaboration consists of three things: social media, a compelling purpose and a focus on forming communities

Knowledge Mangement Must Be Social | Enterprise Social Network Blog - tibbr | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
While some businesses are adding a social networking component to their existing knowledge management systems, others see it as a risk. Here's why they're wrong.

 

Conversation is still the best form of knowledge transfer. Social Increases Learning Social Helps Us Make Decisions Faster  Social Connects Employees to the Right Experts Social Harnesses Collective Knowledge Sharing 
Karen du Toit's insight:

KM should not be seen without the social component!

"The combination of a techno-centric infrastructure, an electronically-driven business core, and the rise of computer-based instructional techniques creates a campus environment ripe for e-commerce trends. While many books on the topic of Knowledge Management (KM) focus onFunctional Issues Relating to implementation of KM techniques, Knowledge Management and Higher Education: A Critical Analysis Addresses the social aspects of KM that are largely ignored. Using various Social Science Perspectives, Knowledge Management and Higher Education: A Critical Analysis provides critical analyses of KM in higher education, with an emphasis on unintended consequences and future implications."

by Ruven Gotz

"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."

Social Knowledge Management & Collaboration, from KMWorld

Social Knowledge Management & Collaboration, from KMWorld | Future Knowledge Management | Scoop.it
"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." The most critical challenge to information managers is connecting the dots between what we know, and the people who need to know it. And that's what knowledge management means—delivering information to people to make better decisions. It's hard, but it's not impossible. Applying unified indexing and insight technologies will lift the enlightened organization into the true information age. And turning data and information into actionable knowledge is the key to competitive advantage. How do you learn more? You can get insight into this philosophy in the latest KMWorld White Paper: "Social Knowledge Management & Collaboration." a special look at Coveo's unique approach to search and KM.

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.

My view: KM should include Enterprise Social networking, without being made redundant!
