The second part contains several case studies looking at applications of KM to e-learning in businesses, government agencies, and universities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., and Europe. The book concludes with a summary of future trends by experts at these organizations. This book ties knowledge management (KM) with e-learning as complementary approaches, highlighting the leading and emerging work being accomplished in this space. These chapters explain knowledge capture, retention, transfer, and sharing."

Ken Keiser's insight:

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.

Social media versus knowledge management

Social media versus knowledge management | Knowledge Management |

What’s the difference between the two?

On the surface they sound very similar, particularly for someone who had had experience with knowledge management.  Both involve people using technology to access information.  Both require individuals to create information that is intended for sharing.  Both technologies profess support for collaboration

Ken Keiser's insight:

As a knowledge manager and a user of social media, I can appreciate the distinction that this article makes--if only to start a discussion between the appropriate roles each might play in an organization. We have had success in both structured and social formats, but we have also experienced deadwood, duplication, and dispersal in both due to the numerous personnel and purposes our organization has included in the creation and use of knowledge and information. It is the challenge of our organization to best use each location appropriately over time and as knowledge grows and matures, and we have the same issue with our personnel. Sharing is one thing, but we also have the challenges of individual preferences and also the priorities people bring to the creation, use, and maintenance of information. I will use this article as the basis of some brainstorming our organization will conduct in order to understand whether we are doing all that we can as best we can. Thanks for this insight.

Another interesting point about knowledge management in this Gartner blog. Knowledge is described as “free flowing”. Using social medial for KM, allows the freedom of the individual to express their knowledge in a way that makes sense to them.

Is social media just another kind of knowledge management, or is it something altogether different?

David J. Williamson, MBA, PhD, PMP, ITIL-F's curator insight, March 15, 7:34 PM

Knowledge management is formal and top-down, typically, while social media is organic, bottom-up, networked.
