    [Blogging] more than mere digital transformation
    Hatcher Blog. Is the automation of what has traditionally been human work inevitable? I know what you’re thinking – there’s some things that robots can do well, but there’s a lot of things that they can’t, and it will be a long, long time before they can match or outperform humans in these tasks. Construction, food preparation, agriculture, mining, manufacturing… while many of these jobs can be automated, my job absolutely cannot be taken by a robot.

    Self-published works, like blogs, can contribute to official documents like white papers and brochures. Fake news. PR hype. Content marketing. Advertorials. Click bait. Propaganda. Doublespeak.

    By David Gurteen If a big part of Knowledge Management is about improving decision making then we should take more notice of fascinating research such as this: Decisions Are Emotional - Not Logical: The Neuroscience behind Decision Making. Are You Easily Disgusted? You May Be a Conservative. Scientists Discover An Environmental Message That Resonates With Conservatives. This isn't about liberal verses conservative thinking. It is about how we all think and make decisions.

    [Blogging] Blog Post: Empowering conversation in the workplace
    By David Gurteen Conversation is not a nice-to-have but a critical competence of a 21st-century organisation. But often we take it for granted and fail to capitalise on the power of conversation to drive performance, transfer learning, build relationships, make better decisions, innovate and more! On May 11th, I will be taking part in a 1-day workshop on Empowering conversation in the workplace , organized by the Henley Forum.

    By David Gurteen You may have come across the phrase "speak truth to power" a lot in the last year and wondered quite what it meant, and it's origin. The Quakers coined the phrase during in the mid-1950s. It was a call for the United States to stand firm against fascism and other forms of totalitarianism. I think it can take two meanings.

    By David Gurteen I am often asked how the Knowledge Café got it's name. Well, it is not just a name for a conversational method to bring people together in conversation but a metaphor for that process. Let me explain. The term "café," frequently written as "cafe" without the e-acute accent, comes from the French and means "coffee.". And of course, a café is a small restaurant which mostly serves coffee, tea, other drinks and an assortment of snacks.
