A workscape perspective | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"There are few best practices for the network era workplace, but definitely many next practices to be developed. A good place to start is with an integrative performance framework that puts formal training and education where they belong: focused on the appropriate 5%.

Toward an Organizational Knowledge Management Strategy

Toward an Organizational Knowledge Management Strategy | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"I came across a few very good learning opportunities last week that have helped move some of my thinking about knowledge management further ahead. First, Jane Hart and Harold Jarche (two people well-worth following) had an online conversation about personal knowledge management. Of particular interest to me was the idea of PKM consisting of “seeking, sensemaking, and sharing”

Provoking Thought: Sustainable Knowledge: A Story

"Let me tell you a story. A cautionary tale, actually. Once upon a time there was a Knowledge Management Consulting group doing some client work in a terrific, intelligent, innovative organization. The objectives were clear-- help the organization learn how to identify, transfer, reuse and develop new knowledge, innovation, ideas and learning. However, no one had set the objective for sustainability. (And there, my friends, lies the caution)."

Is Social Business Just Knowledge Management 2.0? | Social e-learning network

Is Social Business Just Knowledge Management 2.0? | Social e-learning network | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"Where Knowledge Management and Social Business diverge is the organic nature of Social Business. Knowledge Management was about the capture, structure, organization and availability of information from all sources. Social Business is about encouraging people to share what they know, to feel good about doing so, establish relationships with others in the organization which span the organization tree and genuinely do something extraordinary. This might sound like a utopian dream, but I believe there are legs to Social Business which all organizations can benefit from."

Workforce collaboration in the network era | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"One of the biggest challenges I see on a regular basis is getting people to think in terms of networks, then in terms of relationships. From a learning perspective, this is what connectivism is about: knowledge exists within systems which are accessed through people participating in activities. It is by doing our work that we co-create our roles in our networks."

On the ineffable tacitness of knowledge « Eight to Late

On the ineffable tacitness of knowledge « Eight to Late | Beyond KM | Scoop.it
Knowledge management (KM) is essentially about capturing and disseminating the know-how, insights and experiences that exist within an organisation. Although much is expected of KM initiatives, most end up delivering document repositories that are of as much use in managing knowledge as a bus is in getting to the moon. In this post I look into the question of why KM initiatives fail, drawing on a couple of sources that explore the personal nature of knowledge.

Knowledge Management in 2012? Probably Dead

I saw it coming in 2011. But no one believed me. I guess it's difficult to turn your back on something that you fervently believe in... To me, KM — as we know it — is finished. It's going to die. It'll probably be dead before the end of 2012.

 

That's a horrible thing to say, I know. But I also know that KM is going to be reborn. It is going to be reborn into something related — but different from KM as we know it."

Wanted: Knowledge Assets – Dead or Alive?

Wanted: Knowledge Assets – Dead or Alive? | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"There have been a few threads on LinkedIn KM groups on the topic of “knowledge assets” recently.

It’s one of those words which gets thrown around by KM people without any agreed definition. For many people, they are interchangeable with the term “information assets”, but sound sexier. (Much like databases became “knowledgebases” a few years ago.)

Now I’m not going to assert definitions here – rather to give my view on the different perspectives, and share the way I distinguish between knowledge assets and information assets, building on the descriptions that Geoff and I wrote in “Learning to Fly”.

"Executives and thought leaders describe the collision between limitless information and limited human capacity. All the enterprise information management, knowledge management and content management in the world may not be the right tack.

 

Right now, the corporate masters of the universe are struggling with big data – making sense of “the firehose” of structured data. There’s a related – older yet even more formidable – challenge facing every knowledge-based organization: Knowledge management. How can individuals and teams make sense of all the unstructured information at their disposal? Some recent accounts answer: They’re not."

"A recent discussion in Linked-In suggested that the role of the Chief Knowledge Officer is poorly defined, and very difficult. That made me think. Certainly the role is very difficult, but I would not say it is poorly defined.

 

We see the role as evolving over time. To begin with, the CKO is in charge of Knowledge Management implementation. Then, once implementation is over, the CKO is in charge of the effective operation of the Knowledge Management Framework. Roles and accountabilities in these two phases are as follows ..."

Formalising water cooler talk | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"I’ve been speaking a lot with Brian Moon from Perigean Technologies about the need for KMers to formalise the water cooler; the talks that happen through not-so-chance encounters that take place at the fount (or font, depending on your preference) of all knowledge, the water cooler.

 

…Every office space has its expert, its own John of Damascus, s/he stops at the water cooler and is soon joined by desk pilgrims in need of guidance (I would hesitate a guess that we have all done this at some point in our careers)."

It has inflamed the debate around what knowledge is, what KM is, and the fact that you just cannot manage knowledge. KM is a Gordian Knot and, in my opinion, we spend too much time and energy tightening the strands instead of finding a way to slip it."

Model II is a way of interacting that results in knowledge and learning for everyone who is engaged in the conversation. The goal of Model II interaction is not to win an argument, but to create a space for joint learning. A person using the Model II skill set holds in their mind the underlying assumption that, “I have part of the information and others have other parts that I may not be aware of.”
