White Paper: 12 Ways to Save Money Going Paper-LESS

White Paper: 12 Ways to Save Money Going Paper-LESS | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it
The concept of an office without paper, and possibly a paperless society as well, has challenged business’ imagination and innovation like few other subjects.

Since 1975, when an article in Businessweek announced that the workplace of the future would operate without paper, using automated processes and technology breakthroughs, the idea of living paperlessly has become like the search for cold-fusion. The attached white paper from Office Gemini underscores 12 ways the paperless office can benefit you NOW...

Knowledge Is Not Power. The Ability To Act On Knowledge Is Real Power.

Knowledge Is Not Power. The Ability To Act On Knowledge Is Real Power. | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it
Some even suggest that in complex organizations where cross-business and cross-functional interventions aren’t likely to happen unless someone from the top team takes express responsibility for them, appointing a CKO would seem to be a good idea. That’s unrealistic. No P&L ownership means no influence. We need a better reason to justify another chief.

 

Forget a knowledge-management strategy, this is what the snake-oil salesmen/consultants invented to make them look good. Why we keep calling many things something they are not. Everything we are talking about is called “management”. If we take strategy, organization, knowledge, innovation away from management, what’s left in management? Perhaps for some management means the art of doing nothing.

 

Management is a systematic way of ensuring carrying out of all activities is smooth and well aligned. It is different from leadership. Yes, now should I propose companies should add another chief – Chief Leadership Officer? Unless someone tells me knowledge is more important than leadership.

SharePoint excels for NSW Institute of Sport

SharePoint excels for NSW Institute of Sport | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Two years ago, Greg Baxter, Manager of Information Communications and Technology at NSWIS became concerned about the state of the organisation’s records management practices.

Unsurprisingly, given the number of athletes, peak sporting bodies, coaches, medical scientists, administrators and other involved stakeholders, the Institute was awash in paperwork. And although the organisation used a document management system, the software only offered a very basic level of support. Users could view lists of all the document folders on the system, but there was no way of easily identifying folder contents. As each year passed, and more scholarships, correspondence, medical and athlete records were added, it was becoming increasingly difficult to locate anything.

Research confirmed to Baxter that both requirements – the need for better document management and a more user friendly intranet – could be solved with the help of Microsoft SharePoint.

No Business Is Too Small To Implement A Document Management System

No Business Is Too Small To Implement A Document Management System | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

When you talk about document management, you think first of those large businesses with 200+ employees that will save tons of money and speed up their processes by implementing a document management system. But think again! Small businesses can also profit from implementing document management systems; even a car wash business.

 

Bubbles Car Wash from Houston, Texas has been in the business for over 20 years now and by implementing a document management system they have improved their office efficiency. Being a two-part business, Bubbles Hand Wash – a boutique car full service car wash and detailing center, and Bubbles Express – a high volume value driven car wash, they needed a solution that would remove manual paper-based procedures and turn them into efficient, automated workflow processes.

 

The system Bubbles Car Wash went with is Cabinet SAFE – a complete document management solution that allows small businesses to increase efficiency and security, migrate compliance risks and save physical space in the office. It offers much easier searching and archiving of files and your employees can treat it just like they would treat any other real-life filing system. Of course, you can try other document management software as well – like DocStar, which will allow access to your documents anywhere in the world; simply log in into their cloud system and your files are waiting for you right there.

 

When asked what their business life was like before implementing a document management system, a Bubbles spokesperson said “We would spend hours saying ‘If I were Natalie, where would I have filed this?”… and sometimes never even find a document. We’d spend hours searching instead of getting more important work done and meeting deadlines. Our offices would probably be messier with paper files and lots of filing cabinets and we’d be spending a lot of money on consumables like paper, filing folders, printer ink, etc.”

A business of any size can implement a successful document management system, it’s just a matter of finding the process and/or technology that works for your business. That can be something as simple as email or a web based service.

 

So, if you’re running a small business and you have trouble handling your files, maybe a document management system can help you out. Don’t be frightened by the word “system” – document management is helpful, both for big and small businesses.

Efficient Knowledge Management Techniques

Efficient Knowledge Management Techniques | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it
“Diamonds are forever. E-mail comes close.” June Kronholz may not have realized how true to life this quote is and people would take this one seriously! But how true it is for organizations where true dependence on emails for all kinds of conversation is a ritual? Well strange it may sound but most of the time organizations are simply unable to retrieve maximum information from their inboxes!

Did you know the major driving force behind un-productivity and inefficiency at work is inability of workers to discover useful stuff from the inboxes of their colleagues? This results in management blunders and emails a place where knowledge reaches to experience a slow yet sure death.

The problem can be evaded with efficient management techniques such as use of collaborative platforms such as Jive, use of Grexlt to make emails more effective and efficient and most importantly, exploiting the real worth of this communication tool!

Algorithms Can Help Curators Pre-Filter, Discover and Learn From Like-Minded Colleagues

Algorithms Can Help Curators Pre-Filter, Discover and Learn From Like-Minded Colleagues | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

 

Scott:  Point #1 below is exactly why I use Scoop.it and follow Robin. Thank you!

 

Robin Good: Alexis Dufresne of Faveeo, an up and coming information filtering and discovery tool not yet available to the general public, has been posting some interesting articles on topics related to news curation, filtering and discovery.

 

In particular, I found interesting his recent analysis on automated solutions and algorithms designed to help scale curation efforts, as these are generally discarded as inappropriate for any type of professional work. But, as he rightly points out, there are several tasks inside a curator workflow that can indeed help and reduce the curator's workload without limiting his ability to manually select and edit what he finds most appropriate.

Alexis pinpoints at least three different areas in which algorithms and automated operations can indeed greatly help the curator's work. These are:

 

1) Discovery of new sources and networks: ...By teaching a machine about the kind of sources and users a curator is looking for, a machine could process from the incredible mass of sources and people out there to figure out those who are likely to be trusted sources of information. By using techniques of text analysis, social reach, semantic density, popularity and more, this task could be done by a machine.

 

2) Learning the profile of a curator: A lot of engines are focusing on filtering the semantic meaning of an article in order to recommend other content. But by using advanced NLP techniques and text extraction methods, we could go further and have an idea of the tone, the lenght and other signals that can indicate the preferences of a human curator, other than simply the actual keywords used in the text.

 

3) Social recommendations: ...By detecting users that seem to click, like, share or save the same articles, we can connect them together to mutualize their search and discovery operations, in order to speed things up.

 

Rightful. Helpful. 8/10

LinkedIn is certainly the best social media platform for the business contacts and network. To be in harmony, it’s important to respect few rules and good sense. This post will give some information about that. [note Martin Gysler]

How many connections should you have on LinkedIn? I'm asked that question frequently, and there isn't a magic number that works for everyone. LinkedIn isn't a popularity contest where the person with the most connections wins. LinkedIn is about building relationships and connecting with others, which is very different than the monologue communication of Twitter.

That term has nothing to do with learning to become an entrepreneur, he says. Rather, it has everything to do with how you foster a disposition of constantly looking around and understanding how to see new resources, grab new resources and do new things, developing what he calls a "questing disposition." The essence of entrepreneurial learning is being constantly alert, aware and interested in the resources available and in how we build connections.

KMWorld 2012 Promise and Reality award winners and finalists | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Throughout each year, KMWorld is introduced to the best and brightest of the suppliers and practitioners in the trade. We conduct dozens of interviews, hundreds of briefings and review probably thousands of press releases and e-mails.

Then ... we have to pick the best. Each year the magazine's judging panel chooses its "KM Promise and Reality" award winners from among many nominations, and from the judges' own market knowledge.

The recipients of these awards come from each side of the "value" continuum. On one side is the inventive, technological spark that frequently ignites new and long-lasting trends, marking our industry as central to the advancement of information management thinking and action.

On the other side is the pragmatic, practical application of that "innovative spark" by a practitioner that recognizes the value in thoughtfully and creatively deployed technology tools and sound business practices.

The KM Promise Award goes to a vendor that has risen above the noise enough to make our editors take special notice. The KM Reality award goes to an organization that has applied KM practices and technologies in a unique and special way.

Knowledge Knowhow in Outsourcing

Knowledge Knowhow in Outsourcing | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

Jim described the process of Knowledge Management throughout the Outsourcing Cycle. In his presentation Jim described how he promoted outsourcing knowledge in his role as director of procurement. In order to establish effective knowledge knowhow during the lifetime of an outsourcing contract promotion must begin during the draft and creation phase of a contract.
Before Outsourcing

End users must have an accurate picture of their business and what software and hardware they employ. Applications management must be up-to-date with a comprehensive understanding of architecture. SLAs must be in place and monitored while contracts with 3rd parties should be understand with reference to the new outsourcing contract and how this could implicate 3rd parties.
Users must know the current cost of providing the service and market research should be carried out in order to have an update view of the market, allowing for cost service delivery comparisons with the rest of the market. End-users must identify their experts on the contract and then ensure that the experts remain to give advice and guide the deal. Most importantly problems related to the contract must be known and either fixed or fixable so that users are aware as to how long and how costly the process will be.

The Discoverability Problem: How To Get Out of the Filter Bubble Recommendation Systems?

The Discoverability Problem: How To Get Out of the Filter Bubble Recommendation Systems? | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

 

IdeaEncore:  Discovering what people 'like me' are doing is one way to discover new content. But, it all comes down to how we define "like me".   For a professional knowledge sharing site, like IdeaEncore, it might be topic of interest or sub-sector or functional role or experience level.  But the most interesting, breakthroughs happen when we *cross* these traditional boundaries and explore solutions in adjacent or even completely different realms.  So maybe the 'like me' algorithms don't have it right.  Maybe the 'trick' to to discover by 'problems like mine' 

 

 

Robin Good: Brett Sandusky attacks the "discovery" topic with simple, straight logic, analyzing what all the new startups and the new tech fanatics seem to systematically look over.

 

How can you help me discover new stuff, if you are intentionally limiting your exploratory gathering to algorithms and to, however varied, network of contacts?

 

She writes: "The discoverability problem in books is a challenge. It’s about connecting users to new and interesting titles, that they wouldn’t normally have seen. This last part bears repeating: …that they wouldn’t normally have seen.

 

Ultimately, the problem with all these discoverability sites is this: their algorithms (if they are even using an algorithm) are based on aggregate data in a one size fits all model.

 

The more people who read something, the more often it shows up in your recommendations. But, that’s not discoverability. That’s the NYT bestseller list. That’s Nielsen Bookscan telling you the top sales of the week.

 

Just because most of my friends are reading bestsellers (because, duh, whose aren’t? In fact, that seems to just reinforce the concept of the term “bestseller”) does that mean I should only be shown these titles?

 

Obviously, the answer is no. But, how do we get there?"

 

The answer is that we need a) more expert and qualified human intervention to unearth and pick new stuff, and b) behavioral data coupled with data collected on customer preference to allows us to connect those selected materials to the users in the system.

 

 

Rightful. Timely. 8/10

RPattinson-Daily's comment, October 14, 2012 8:20 AM
Robin Good, thank You for attention to my comment. Unfortunately, due to crisis of 2008 plans of creation its western language edition were terminated. However, concept, technologies, business model of such recommendation service for creative goods (books, movies, music) were described in book “The Economics of Symbolic Exchange” by Alexander Dolgin (2006) (http://www.amazon.com/Economics-Symbolic-Exchange-Alexander-Dolgin/dp/354079882X). I was content curator, market researcher and editor of this book.
It can be read by parts/chapters depending on interest (see its Contents in Amazon). For example, chapter 1.3 about consumer navigation in creative industry such as online music market, ch.2.7 – survey of recommender systems. The music industry was first where recommendation systems based on collaborative filtering were implemented (for example Last.Fm, and many others). How well they are working you may check out for music – Last.Fm (www.last.fm), for movies – Netflix (www.netflix.com).

"I’m reluctant to “one size fits all” when it comes to knowledge management. I believe in the individuality of each organization and believe that a keyword for the future of knowledge management is “creativity”.

 

Approaches will have to be creative, even if they are based on similar tools: databases, networking platforms, expertise location, or collaboration systems for communities of practice.

 

Knowledgeheimer is already the most common form of organisational dysfunction and, if not treated properly, worsens as it progresses, eventually leading to death. As we become more and more knowledge-driven societies, its incidence is increasing from year to year."
