Mlik Sahib's curator insight, December 9, 2013 8:19 PM

"On-line, nearly everything we do influences the structure of the network (through stigmergy). This calls for responsibility with regard to our role in shaping mankind’s collective memory. As we become simultaneously readers, authors, critics, editors, curators, librarians… we must come to integrate the notion of citizenship of the knowledge society. In ethical terms, this entails that we help others orient themselves in the collective memory."

PKM and Corporate Memory - a dichotomy?

The presentation looks specifically at the changing nature of organisations and the emergent power of networks and networking. Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is a competence we must all learn in order to remain relevant to our organisation. But who ultimately “owns” the ‘corporate’ knowledge that we gather through the workplace networks we nurture and sustain, and do the organisations we work for even recognise the importance of these networks as places for continual learning, knowledge sharing and incubators for innovation?
