How to make Knowledge Management Sexy Again

How to make Knowledge Management Sexy Again | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it

Two articles surfaced recently that reinforce that point to how to make KM sexy again:

 

BBC – Did Minsky find the secret behind the financial crashes?

 

Time – Google’s flu project shows the failings of big data

 

If you want to make KM sexy again it means a shift in thinking!

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, March 29, 4:11 PM

The second article reference would probably cause Nassim Nicholas Taleb to say, of big data, "Of course!"  One of his quotes, "The fooled-by-data effect is accelerating. There is a nasty phenomenon called “Big Data” in which researchers have brought cherry-picking to an industrial level."

That said, I'm just back from the Knowledge Management Institute Showcase (next post) where "sensemaking" and combining narrative and social science methods was exactly what we were doing.  


My version of it, using "Open Space Technology" as a process technique to FRAME for enrichment, exchange, commitment will be in the next post.   ~  D
