Is It Possible to Change a Knowledge Management Culture Without Addressing Organizational Culture?

Is It Possible to Change a Knowledge Management Culture Without Addressing Organizational Culture? | Corporate Culture and OD |

"...the approach presented by Raouf Naggar, head of strategic development at the Hydro-Québec Research Institute (IREQ), this past June in Montréal. At the Conference Board's Executive Meeting of the Council for Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM), Mr. Naggar presented IREQ's approach to managing ideas in an environment and culture that in the past would typically work against sharing ideas. This is essentially due to the nature of its R&D activities and to the possible competition between researchers to obtain projects."


"Is there an effective way to change behaviour in large and established organizations? Can changing the value proposition to focus on motivators and community building work to shift the behaviour while sidestepping the monumental task of changing the culture in this or other large and established organizations?

IREQ is at the beginning stages of this process of drastically shifting organizational culture. The Institute's efforts to establish communities and motivate idea sharing through tapping into employees values are a work in progress that, if successful, will gather, store, and work to develop countless ideas that have the potential to improve the business."

Why do I need KM?

Why Do I Need Knowledge Management asks @HaroldJarche PKM skills are now vital


"In response to my post on relevance, my long-time friend Ralph Mercer asked, “Why do I need KM at an institutional level when information is ambient at a global level and personal at a hyper local level?” This illuminates an observation made by Thierry deBaillon, which I have often quoted, “The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” We are surrounded by information and have many ways to collaborate, but unless each person has effective sense-making processes, social business networks are mostly noise amplification.

Collaborative knowledge work must be coupled with cooperative knowledge sharing. Cooperation, or sharing without any quid pro quo, is the foundation of personal knowledge management. PKM is based on playfully seeking knowledge, not task-driven searching. It is also about sharing to inspire, not because you have to. The results of PKM can then be used in collaborative work."
