Active sense-making

Harold Jarche

Yesterday, during my presentation on personal knowledge management to IBM BlueIQ I was asked about the role of blogging in my own sense-making processes. These are my half-baked thoughts which I make public in order to share and to learn. In my Seek>Sense><Share model, seeking and annotating information is important but cannot stand on its own. Seeking information is an important foundation to PKM online but it’s of little use without action.

Network Learning: Working Smarter

Harold Jarche

Tweet “In the period ahead of us, more important than advances in computer design will be the advances we can make in our understanding of human information processing – of thinking, problem solving, and decision making…” ~ Herbert Simon, Economics Nobel-prize winner (1968). The World Wide Web is changing how many of us do our work as we become more connected to information and each other. This information overload has a direct impact on workplace learning.

Sense-making

Harold Jarche

The term personal knowledge management (PKM) isn’t about management in a business sense but rather how we can manage to make sense of information and experience in our electronic surround. Personal – according to one’s abilities, interests & motivation (not directed by external forces). Knowledge – connecting information to experience (know what, know who, know how). Management – getting things done.

Knowledge sharing, one at a time

Harold Jarche

“Every amateur epistemologist knows that knowledge cannot be managed. Education has always assumed that knowledge can be transferred and that we can carefully control the process through education. While knowledge cannot be managed, we can work at managing our own knowledge. That’s what personal knowledge management ( PKM ) is all about. Luis Suarez prefers the term knowledge sharing to knowledge management.

PKM in 2010

Harold Jarche

Personal Knowledge Management. Personal = according to one’s abilities, interests and motivation (not directed by external forces). Knowledge = the capacity for effective action (know how). Management = how to get things done. PKM is an individual, disciplined process by which we make sense of information, observations and ideas. Engaging others can actually make it easier to learn and not become overwhelmed. Information.

Sense-making with PKM

Harold Jarche

We may learn on our own but usually not by ourselves. People learn socially. In looking at how we can make sense of the growing and changing knowledge in our respective professional fields, I see two parallel processes that support each other. One is internally focused, as in “How do I learn this?” and the other is external, as in “Who can help me learn this?”. Making Explicit: There are many ways of making knowledge explicit. Social.

PKM: aggregate, filter, connect

Harold Jarche

Knowledge Squared equals Power Squared, says Craig Thomler : However the knowledge hoarding model begins to fail when it becomes cheap and easy to share and when the knowledge required to complete a task exceeds an individual’s capability to learn in the time available. This has been reflected in a longitudinal study of knowledge workers that Robert Kelley of Carnegie-Mellon University conducted over more than twenty years.

Why the Government of Canada needs PKM

Harold Jarche

David Eaves writes in Why the Government of Canada needs Bloggers : One theme that came up was that public servants feel they are suffering from information overload. I can’t discuss any specifics of what I observed but there is no doubt that senior public servants are inundated with information and that their time is not their own, with many days filled with meetings and other time-consuming activities. social bookmarks ).

Creating your PKM processes

Harold Jarche

In Sense-making with PKM I described some personal knowledge management processes using various web tools. Personal knowledge management is one way of addressing the issue of TMI (too much information). A sense-making routine can be regularly reading certain blogs and news feeds, capturing important ideas with social bookmarks and then putting ideas out in the open on a blog. Use Social Bookmarks.

Social tools for networks

Harold Jarche

Effective knowledge sharing is what many organizations do not do well, or as Lew Platt past-CEO of Hewlett-Packard said, “if only HP knew what HP knows, we would be three times more productive&#. That’s the key benefit of personal knowledge management, in my opinion. If each person can better manage knowledge creation and capture, then it becomes easier to share it. tools is that they are designed for knowledge-sharing as well.
