Certainly there are other critical success factors in the reuse of organizational knowledge, like alignment to strategy, processes, and technology enablement, but if there’s a holy grail of knowledge sharing it would be the change management required to incorporate the ...
Too much access to information has turned us into “overwhelmed” employees. Nearly every company sees this phenomenon as a challenge to productivity…
Victor Jimenez's insight:
Knowledge Managers will appreciate and benefit from this read.
As we all know, embracing KM can increase productivity and should be approached from a system-wide view as a strategy for the entire organization. The author touches on a number of topics which influence KM but are not always labeled as such. Good coverage of a complex topic.
Around the world, there is enormous enthusiasm for the type of technological innovation symbolized by Silicon Valley, with many attempting to replicate the ingenuity that they regard as America’s true comparative advantage. But there is a puzzle: it is difficult to detect the benefits of this innovation in GDP statistics.
Victor Jimenez's insight:
Managing knowledge is an act which demonstrates what it means to be innovative. Innovation is Knowledge Management.
Early adopters to the belief that we are moving into a Knowledge-Based Economy will have an advantage. Their challenge will always be to identify ROI for managing knowledge to those who doubt it's value. What evidence must be gathered? What must be measured? Are our current indicators appropriate for assessing the value of innovation (and Knowledge Management)? For a Knowledge Manager, these questions must be continually asked and revised as they apply to an organization.
Wondering if Big Data is something you need to be paying attention to for your work?
Maybe you have already decided “Yes”, but are unsure where to start?
I think this essay by Jeff Marshall is a solid introduction to the big data discussion and is well worth following. Here, Mr. Marshall begins to breaks down big topics into easily understandable pieces. Topics are brought in and presented clearly from among data modelling, database logical layer design, strategic planning, and probably even more areas as the discussion continues.
Here are my own take-aways from this essay:
* Organizational strategy should drive data selection (understand strategy to understand questions that need to be answered by big data)
*What is BIG DATA? (a mix of structured, unstructured, and streaming data)
*Key to understanding your big data is in understanding the connections, not necessarily the components
*Managers and Users of data need tools to guide the search for relevant data and for acting on it
*An ontology can provide the organizing structure and a guide for these the creation of these tools by:
--Organizing internal data to uncover relationships and meta-tags for use in search
--Driving different searches (deliberate, robotic, and anecdotal)providing a structure for queries and classification schemes
--Don’t forget. During all this tool building, we still need to stop and check our data. Is it safe, is it reliable, is it accurate?
Good tips on the value of KM from David Griffiths, PhD. I especially see #12 as critical to KM success in any organization. The realization that sharing of information is a business need among all areas of the organization is not something that comes naturally to most. Yet those who can step outside their domain and see the greater context have a better chance of making the best decisions for their mission the first time around.
Our UK office is on the third floor, a choice i regret when carrying a thousand books up the back stairs. Today, the Social Leadership Handbook has arrived from the printers in Latvia. Latvia? Yes,...
