Amit Shwartz's insight:

You already have an engaged workforce – it’s just that they’re engaged in other things. No-one has trained them on their use of Amazon or eBay or Hotmail or Facebook. They didn’t read the (non-existent) manual about their phone in order to send a text message. The truth of the matter is that they figured it out for themselves or sought help from someone they thought could help (an “expert”).

Only if you let it ... and that can happen when you don't live the way you say you will or work they way you say you will.  How relevant is your culture statement today?  When was it last updated?  Who had input?  Do you have a culture based in the 1800s or one based on today?

When Your Intranet and Enterprise Social Network Get Married

When Your Intranet and Enterprise Social Network Get Married | KM Factory | Scoop.it
Pop the champagne and get ready to celebrate: your Intranet and Enterprise Social Network are getting married!As we prepare to toast this joyous integration, remember that the Intranet and the ESN are strong, independent entities with many individual merits. As in any marriage, each partner must remain unique with its own purpose. By tying the knot, however, the Intranet and the ESN will complement each other’s strengths (and minimize their weaknesses), improving the overall employee commu Topic: Social Business.

The "8 Cs" Audit of Knowledge Management

The "8 Cs" Audit of Knowledge Management | KM Factory | Scoop.it

Paul Gebel This is the second of a three part series on Knowledge Management in organizations. [...] by Nancy M. Dixon. In this post, I’ll take a look at a high-level survey of eight attributes of the state of KM within an organization. As a snapshot poll, this survey could be structured as a simple 1-10, or more likely a 1-5 performance scale. Or if an organization were to sample a set of knowledge superusers, this audit could also solicit unstructured, free-form responses for more qualitative feedback. Any way it is administered, the feedback gained from this audit is foundational to developing action items for KM improvement based on the goals of the organization.

Posted by David Griffiths

"This week I was asked by a large EU corporate client to put together a visual that could be shown to their Senior Management Team to illustrate the integrated nature of KM activities – with an emphasis on KM being more than just SharePoint.

This was the response and I am sharing it in the hope that it might be of use to those struggling to move away from the more traditional IT-centric view of KM."
