Successful Knowledge Management Storytelling at Fluor - Jeff Hester

Successful Knowledge Management Storytelling at Fluor - Jeff Hester | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

by jeff hester:

"Before we developed written languages, storytelling allowed us to pass down our history and knowledge from one generation to the next. Even today, storytelling remains a powerful medium. A well-told story with a meaningful message is easier to remember, internalize and share.


Earlier today I chatted with fellow knowledge management (KM) colleagues at KMers.org on the subject of corporate storytelling and knowledge management, and I promised to share my storytelling story."

 

"At Fluor, storytelling almost always takes a written form. Naturally, people share their stories in person or in teleconferences, but our emphasis is on written stories. This definition of “storytelling” is different from many other organizations.

Our stories are real-world examples that illustrate the value of knowledge management. I recognize that there are stories that do not involve either success nor any form of knowledge sharing. While they can be valuable in their own right, they fall out of my organization’s scope.

These KM success stories are collected both informally and formally. Informally, we simply ask people to share examples of how knowledge sharing (a more accessible term than KM) and collaboration has benefited them, their project or the client. This past year we asked this question in on of our KM discussion forums and had over 30 responses — some good, some great and some everyday examples of KM at work. The best of these were identified and more formally captured."

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Timeline is a Javascript open-source solution that allows anyone to create a visual timeline that integrates text, tweets, images, maps, audio recordings and video clips on an infinite scrollable bar. 

 

A project funded by the Knight News Innovation Lab, Timeline works great with stories that have a strong chronological narrative. It does not work well for stories that need to jump around in the timeline.

 

Mashable Sonia Paul writes about it: "Timeline is similar to Storify in that it allows users to aggregate media on the web, it differs in its operation.

 

With Storify, users can drag and drop content into a post.

 

With Timeline, users can either embed the code onto their website using JSON, or — if they don’t want to mess with any coding — they can fill in a ready-made Timeline template on Google Docs.

 

The project is currently hosted on GitHub, and users can find specific directions on how to both embed the code and use the Google Doc template there, too.

 

Future plans for the project include support of more media type, as well as iPhone compatibility, B.C. time support and better seconds and milliseconds support." 

 

Here is the GDoc ready-made template: https://docs.google.com/previewtemplate?id=0AppSVxABhnltdEhzQjQ4MlpOaldjTmZLclQxQWFTOUE&mode=public&ndplr=1&pli=1#
