Creating Order From Chaos: 9 Great Ideas For Managing Your Computer Files

Creating Order From Chaos: 9 Great Ideas For Managing Your Computer Files | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

It’s frustrating isn’t it when you can’t find that file? When you’ve searched every folder imaginable on your computer, and somehow it got lost….or worse, deleted. Now, there are excellent search tools for Windows that allow you to find your files, but they only work if you know the name of the file. And you don’t want to open up a program to find every file and folder that you need. It’s just nice to have things neat and easy to access whenever you need them.

 

I’ve put together a list of 9 things you can do to manage computer files and get the most out of your computer. Because that’s its purpose – to be moreuseful, not less useful. But computers are often more complicated in some ways when they’re not set up and used properly, which is essentially counterproductive.

Modern knowledge management in practice

Modern knowledge management in practice | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Knowledge is power! However, today this is a truth with modification since knowledge becomes outdated much faster than before. Consequently, you will gain less if you save the knowledge in your own hideouts. The challenge for companies and the public sector but also schools is to manage to translate individual knowledge into organizational awareness and then to manage the knowledge-base with constant updates, focus on usability and pedagogy.

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

 

 

Susan Gunelius does a great job of suggesting how to put to good use the content curation potential on your own blog site.

 

Here her first two recommendations:


1) Publish Editorialized Content that You've Curated:
It's important to understand the difference between content aggregation, content syndication, and content curation before you can effectively curate content to publish on your blog.


2) Publish Curated Round-up Blog Posts:
You could publish a weekly round-up post where you share links and descriptions of great content from multiple sources about a specific topic. You can even add your own brief commentary with each link.

 

 

 

Good advice. Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

Customer sentiment analysis: A shift to customer service

Customer sentiment analysis: A shift to customer service | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Customer sentiment analysis is a method of processing information, generally in text format and often from social media sources, to determine customer opinions and responses. Analysis of the data allows organizations to assess whether customer reaction to a new product was positive or negative, or whether owners of a product are experiencing major technical difficulties. Analysis of aggregated data over time provides insights into trends, while analysis of individual cases in near real time lets companies address and resolve customer issues quickly.

At the heart of customer sentiment is text analysis, a complex process based on statistical and linguistic analyses. Text analysis is used for many different applications, including fraud detection and analysis of scientific or intelligence data. The broader the range of content, the more difficult it is to get a clear interpretation. In addition, many of the social media streams are filled with slang, abbreviations and sarcasm, all of which are difficult for analytical tools to process. Depending on the application and the software tool, users of customer sentiment solutions have varying degrees of success.

The Failure of Knowledge Management – Swystun Communications

The Failure of Knowledge Management – Swystun Communications | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

“Knowledge management has failed,” says University of Toronto professor Don Tapscott in a video interview on the McKinsey Quarterly site called “Making internal collaboration work.”

The problem, he believes, is that executives think corporate knowledge is a finite asset that can be confined within a “container.” They are wrong: “The most important knowledge is not inside the boundaries of a company. You don’t achieve it through containerization, you achieve it through collaboration.”

The author and strategist describes why effective knowledge management within enterprises requires replacing e-mail with social media.

advantages of electronic document management

advantages of electronic document management | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Electronic document management systems can be an engineer’s best friend – a tool that is proven to enhance the productivity of its users and will liberate engineers from the most tedious aspects of their job, improving the quality and accuracy of their work through accurate documentation. Integrated electronic document management systems – electrical computer-aided engineering (E-CAE) – automate all manually performed functions. In the past, separate systems have been used to automate some of the tasks using multiple software programs, e.g., a computer-aided design (CAD) package to create graphical schematics and a table-based Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to create parts lists. Those programs do not share data with each other, which necessitates a great deal of manual (and redundant) data entry, cross-referencing, and error-checking. These approaches have a great potential to foster incorrect documentation. Today’s advanced E-CAE programs have automated these and many other tasks. Engineers are able to provide correct documentation on a timely basis, eliminating tedious error checking tasks that once took days or weeks to complete.

A personal knowledge management challenge for senior managers

The higher up an organisation an employee climbs, the more likely it is that their working knowledge, of how those lower down the hierarchy complete daily tasks, will diminish.  

Why?  Because it is very easy for senior managers to become detached from the day-to-day functioning of their organisation and the activities they (as more junior employees) used to complete; not because they want or intend to; nor because they in any way feel they are now “above these things”; but because an endless succession of meetings, and being fed volumes of ‘management information’, gets in the way and prevents them from so doing. 

This lack of knowledge can lead to poorer decisions being made and the accusation levelled from those on the shop floor that the management team “are not in touch”.  So how can a senior manager address this issue and reduce the risk of being, and being seen to be, out of touch?

One difficulty of knowledge capturing is the value of knowledge only realises when the knowledge is needed, so it is hard to know what to capture and what to keep.  Many organisations decide to keep anything they captured for everyone which makes locating the right knowledge more difficult.

Why You're Not A Leader - Forbes

Why You're Not A Leader - Forbes | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Everybody thinks they’re a leader – most are far from it. The harsh reality is that we live in a world awash with wannabe leaders. As much as some don’t want to admit it, not everyone can or should become a leader (my take on the born vs. made argument). Simply desiring to be a leader doesn’t mean a person has the character, skill, and courage necessary to be a leader.

 

If you think you’re a leader, but haven’t been recognized as such, you have a problem. Either you’re incorrect in your self-assessment, or those you report to don’t recognize your talent. Here’s the good news; handled correctly, either scenario can be resolved if you’re willing to do some work.

Progress and knowledge

Progress and knowledge | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

 

When it comes to knowledge, are we making progress? And if we are, why does it so often seem like we're  sliding backward as we try to climb Mt. Smartypants?

From the gitgo, the question of progress has a ton of assumptions packed into it. For example, Sidney Pollard in 1968 wrote that "a belief in progress implies the assumption that a pattern of change exists in the history of mankind, that this pattern is known, that it consists of irreversible changes in one general direction only, and that this direction is toward improvement."

Now, we don't have to think that all of human history exhibits progress to wonder if we are now making progress in knowledge in the current age. But we do have to face the fundamental question buried in the concept of "improvement?" If we say (as Charles van Doren did in 1967) that progress is improvement from "a less to a more desirable state of affairs," we're pretty much at the nub of the problem: What do we desire? And what if we don't all agree about what we desire? And, most of all, what if the changes we're experiencing are changes in what we desire?

Pushing the boundaries of the knowledge sciences

Pushing the boundaries of the knowledge sciences | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

We are living in extraordinary and unprecedented times. Never before have we seen the convergence of so many different approaches to, and the need for, the discovery, transfer and application of knowledge.

Such times demand nothing less than the increased expansion of both the inner and outer boundaries of human awareness. While we KM'ers like to talk about tacit knowledge, we tend to avoid using words like consciousness in the same conversation. But as we move into a more complex, closely interconnected society, we can no longer limit our discussions to purely objective science.

Knowledge by nature has a threefold structure: subject, object and the process by which the subject and object interact with each other. Eastern philosophy tends to be deeply subjective and seeks to avoid any attachment to objective reality. Western science tends to be the opposite, even to the point of forbidding the introduction of any semblance of subjectivity during an investigation or experiment. That fragmented, reductionist approach to knowledge discovery is the root cause of many of the gaps in our knowledge today.
