10 Destructive KM Myths

10 Destructive KM Myths | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

By David Griffiths:

"These 10 Destructive KM Myths seem to permeate conversations around the digital KM-sphere. They are not ranked and I am sure you could add to them, but, from my perspective, they need to be put out to pasture.

1. KM is technology

2. KM is about developing tools

3. It’s okay to start with KM and worry about the rationale later

4. Build it and they will come\

5. The SECI and DIKW models are the foundations of the field

6. KM emerged in the 1990′s

7. It’s okay for KMers to manage ‘parts’ in isolation (i.e. lessons learned)

8. It’s hard to determine value

9. KM is fuzzy and hard to define

10. KM is dead"

Great list!

A thought-provoking list. Would be interesting to see some responses to these in a KM Forum. I'd like to see some of them put out to pasture but I don't think we have all the answers yet.

Six tips to improve the best free Knowledge Management tool available today

Six tips to improve the best free Knowledge Management tool available today | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"So, what is the best free Knowledge Management tool?


Conversation!


Conversation is the lubricant to knowledge exchange and, in the right hands, or is that mind or mouth, it is the most valuable knowledge management tool available today. The problem is that so many people do a bad job of it. They don’t think about the structure of their face-to-face or text based conversations and they are not making the most of the best free knowledge management tool available to them."

Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers | LawyerKM

Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers | LawyerKM | Beyond KM | Scoop.it
I am constantly reminded of the importance of communicating effectively.  And I am repeatedly convinced that a simple message delivered in a simple way is most ("Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers" by @LawyerKM

 

Connections  Are the Key…

My favorite (and primary) way to communicate KM to lawyers — and the representation in the KM card, above — is to speak in terms of connections.  It’s about “connecting people with people, connecting people with knowledge and information, and the processes, procedures, and technologies required to make those connections.”  I like this approach because it is broad, yet meaningful.  It allows me to talk about various aspects of KM from culture to technology, without eyes glazing over.

I carry the KM cards with me at work (and elsewhere).  When I need to explain KM to someone, I talk about connections.  After my elevator speech, I hand them a card as a take-away mnemonic.   “Here’s an easy way to remember what we do,” I say,  “the KM department’s email address is on the back.”

The more “complex” definitions of KM are fine when talking to people in KM circles and getting into the depths of knowledge management, but when talking to busy lawyers, spouting some convoluted, jargon-bloated, “nonsense” is the surest way to lose their attention.  Lawyers are no strangers to jargon.  They know it — and will reject it (and you) — the second they hear it.
