Microsoft buys LinkedIn for $26bn - What does this tell us about the value of Human Capital and Social networks? | KMInstitute

Microsoft buys LinkedIn for $26bn - What does this tell us about the value of Human Capital and Social networks? | KMInstitute | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it
So the truth is out - paradoxically in an age of digital transformation, human capital is becoming the great differentiator. Microsoft’s eye watering price paid for LinkedIn makes the argument for the increasing value of Human Capital and Social Networks. Indeed the case is even more compelling when you understand that LinkedIn is still a loss making company . . .

Knowledge Management (KM) Certification & Training Training Certification Transformation

Marie Jeffery's insight:

We recently featured a two-part article by Lesley Crane, considering the question of whether knowledge management is a science.    Alongside the article, we included an open survey asking readers what they think.  This caused quite a stir, and we had 186 responses in total. So, what did the community think on this question?

To Social or Not to Social? | KMInstitute

To Social or Not to Social? | KMInstitute | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it

By Rebecka Isaksson | Director, KM Programs - Microsoft

I am coming back to a popular and dear topic to many here: e-mail vs. conversations (I’ll use ‘conversations’ loosely, to refer to ‘enterprise social’ platforms in general). The discussion that seems to occur most often in my own experience, is regarding the “WHAT” (e-mail or ‘social’ tools) but not nearly as often on the “WHEN”, "HOW", or even more importantly in my opinion: the “WHY”.

Thanks to Jose' Carlos Tenorio Favero of Global Knowledge Management for his insights this week on the KMI Blog.

Marie Jeffery's insight:

Key point from the article, "What has changed from 1st generation Knowledge Management is that “social” technology has being integrated into the fabric of people and we didn’t have this before.  Workspace collaboration is changing as we speak and we can´t turn a blind eye to Gen Y and Millennials social behavior."

Change Management for Agile Projects | KMInstitute

Change Management for Agile Projects | KMInstitute | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it

Through our years of designing, developing, and implementing knowledge and information management technologies, we’ve consistently regarded user understanding and buy-in as key criteria for success. The change management profession aims to reduce the purported 70% failure rate on large projects by concentrating on the people side of change. Change professionals focus on communications, training, and stakeholder engagement activities for projects ranging from the rollout of a new document management system to a new records retention process to a corporate reorganization.

Workplace Evolution – Tuning in to Worker Expectation | KMInstitute

Workplace Evolution – Tuning in to Worker Expectation | KMInstitute | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it

We now want the same digital experience and service levels at work as we get in our personal life


The world of work is undergoing significant change. Worker expectations have shifted in so many ways. Employees want to use their own devices and applications to get their work done. They expect to have their views and ideas aired and to get rapid feedback. Access to information and to decision makers is often more important than financial remuneration. Transparency and Collaboration are the new corporate mantras.

Human Capital - The Last Differentiator | KMInstitute

Human Capital - The Last Differentiator | KMInstitute | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it
by Rooven Pakkiri | Social Business Consultant
 

We are now operating in a world where the commoditisation of IT is fast becoming a reality for the current workforce. And it will be totally non-negotiable for the future workforce. BYOD is rapidly becoming BYOA. In this brave new world of Internet 3.0, the playing field has shifted - company size and history is less important than responsiveness and agility. The now legendary story of Blockbuster's rejection of the Netflix offer to form a partnership is instructive. The way in which talent finds its desired company and the terms on which it wants to engage are evolving rapidly. Going forward the single greatest differentiator for a company will be its ability to consistently leverage the talent and knowledge of its workforce to the maximum. Companies who are bound by tradition and hierarchy will struggle to compete and many household brands will become obsolete. . .
