HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM Roles
| SUNDAY, JANUARY 12, 2014
I like to frame personal knowledge management as a combination of seeking knowledge, making sense of it, and sharing it with others. But in fact, like most things, different people have different personality types, and different personality profiles in relation to their personal knowledge affinities and capabilities. – PKM: A DIY Guide to Knowledge Management. This is a good guide for work groups to find out how knowledge is co-created and shared.
JANE HART [Knowledge Management] Reserve a seat for my webinar: In conversation with Harold Jarche
| TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2012
Topic : PKM (Personal Knowledge Management): making sense of the Social Web. He has been described as “a keen subversive of the last century’s management and education models”. You can read more about Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) on Harold’s website here: Personal Knowledge Management. My guest in my next In conversation with … webinar is my Internet Time Alliance colleague, Harold Jarche.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Socialcast and social learning
| THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2011
Exception management through social networks gives management clear insight into the resources needed for handling these exceptions. A more recent post on the evolution of knowledge management clearly shows the need to support the sharing of tacit knowledge in a complex and creative economy: This is a blog worth subscribing to.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Grappling with Knowledge
| FRIDAY, MARCH 23, 2012
Paper-based knowledge can’t scale. The Net scales knowledge. The difference between IM [information management] and KM [knowledge management] is the difference between a recipe and a chef, a map of London and a London cabbie, a book and its author. It is folly to ever call it knowledge, because that is the domain of the brain. Of course, I speak here of individual knowledge. Knowledge Inventories via @IsabelDeClercq.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM Workshops
| SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2012
The final scheduled personal knowledge management workshop finishes this weekend. Here is a great explanation from Jack Vinson , who shared his years of KM experience during the workshop: Personal knowledge management is the idea that individuals have to be responsible for managing to get things done. With four workshops this year and 110 participants, I have learned as much as anyone else.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM and MOOC
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2013
If we think of the MOOC as a vehicle for shared understanding, and not content delivery, it becomes the collective equivalent to personal knowledge management. Workplace training and education too often resembles modern playgrounds: safe, repeatable, easily constructed from component parts, requiring that the child bring little of their own to the experience – Johnnie Moore. When adults design for children they have a tendency to dumb things down.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Network Learning PKM Workshop Notes
| WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 2011
It is focused on mastering social media for networked learning, and is based on my work with PKM (personal knowledge management) since 2005. Tweet The Network Learning workshop will be held in Toronto on 27 May 2011. I use Seek-Sense-Share as an initial framework to explain how to set up a personalized PKM process: 1. Finding things out on the Web (SEEK). Keeping up to date with new Web content (SEEK). Building a trusted network of colleagues (SEEK & SHARE).
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] The 21st century workplace: moving to the edge
| TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2011
This information can be mapped, and frameworks such as knowledge management (KM) help us to map it. We can also create tools, especially electronic performance support systems (EPSS) to do work and not have to learn all the background knowledge in order to accomplish the task. This is how simple and complicated knowledge gets automated. Complex , new problems need tacit knowledge to solve them. Sharing and using knowledge is where business value lies.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Resetting learning and work
| MONDAY, JUNE 27, 2011
Our informal learning needs will continue to grow, as Robert Kelley showed over a 20-year CMU study of knowledge workers. He asked: “What percentage of the knowledge you need to do your job is stored in your own mind?”. Here’s a quote from Peter Drucker’s 2005 article Managing Oneself, in HBR ( Slideshare Synopsis of Managing Oneself ): The challenges of managing oneself may seem obvious, if not elementary.
JOHN HAGEL [Knowledge Management] Scaling Learning in an Exponential World
| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2016
Training rooms are fine for transmitting existing explicit knowledge, but not very effective for developing new shared practices. Expand learning well beyond knowledge management platforms. Knowledge management platforms have largely been organized around sharing existing knowledge. Tacit knowledge is far more valuable than explicit knowledge. Tacit knowledge becomes accessible through shared practice.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Systems thinking & complexity
| WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21, 2017
There was a lot of value in setting objectives, designing things based on how things should be provided you had the sense to realise when you had reached a threshold of what I started to call manageable ambiguity. When I started to enter complexity theory I was working from a background in knowledge management and a focus on tacit knowledge, the partly knowable aspects of work that could never be codified in such a way that human experience was not necessary.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM Workshop: learning out loud
| WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 2012
The Personal Knowledge Management workshop , starting this Monday, 23 April, provides a loose framework to try out some new ways of learning for yourself, but with a small group of people to help and support you. Sometimes it helps to learn out loud – LOL. That’s why we commit to formalized activities. They can help us try something new.
JANE HART [Knowledge Management] Online Workshops in May and June at the Social Learning Centre
| WEDNESDAY, MAY 2, 2012
Personal Knowledge Management. “One of the most useful aspects of both this and the previous course was learning how to organise and manage an online course. In May and June, Harold Jarche and I will be running another series of our popular public online workshops at the Social Learning Centre. These take place over a 2-week period and involve 5-6 web-based assignments, some individual activities, as well as conversations and discussions with other participants.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] The Power of Pull and PKM
| WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2013
John Seely Brown & Lang Davison looks at how digital networks and the need for long-term relationships that support the flow of tacit knowledge are radically changing the nature of the enterprise as we know it. It is also an excellent reference book for understanding many facets of personal knowledge management. PKM helps people stay focused on the edges of their knowledge and look for innovation and opportunity. The Power of Pull by John Hagel.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] New challenges of management
| TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2009
Anthony Poncier (in French) covers the eight challenges of management in the virtual era, which I’ve loosely translated: Being concurrently nomadic and collaborative. The production of collective knowledge. Managing with both IQ and EQ (emotional quotient). This list brings out the challenges of managing in a networked environment and highlights some of the different facets that managers will need to focus on.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM is not a technology
| THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2012
My definition of personal knowledge management is quite short: PKM: A set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, work more effectively, and contribute to society. Usually the barriers stem from the organizational structure or from management. Knowledge – connecting information to experience (know what, know who, know how). Management – getting things done [not being managed].
JANE HART [Knowledge Management] PKM and Online Communities Workshops
| MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2013
Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) Workshop. If you are a knowledge worker then this workshop can give you a head start in better managing what you know and where to find it so you can get things done. Sessions cover: Planning your community; Launching your Community; Maintaining your Community, Role of the Community Manager. Here are the details of two upcoming workshops and one free webinar at the Social Learning Centre.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM as pre-curation
| THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012
The most important part of personal knowledge management (PKM), in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making. The knowledge gained from PKM is an emergent property of all its activities. Merely tagging an article does not create knowledge. I can practice PKM and over time develop a wide variety of knowledge artifacts. I think that people who have a professional PKM framework have some of the skills and knowledge needed to be good curators.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Awareness
| MONDAY, APRIL 2, 2012
Tweet Part of Personal Knowledge Management is seeking sources of knowledge (Seek-Sense-Share). Wolfgang Reinhardt has looked at knowledge workers, researchers in particular, and examined how they can be aware in their fields of expertise. Wolfgang graciously sent me a copy of his PhD thesis (Awareness: Support for knowledge workers in research networks) which he will be defending on 5 April at the Open Universiteit Nederland in Heerlen.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Network Learning Workshop Toronto May 2011
| SATURDAY, MARCH 5, 2011
In the past several months many people have approached me asking for tips and techniques on managing digital overload. Network Learning (also called Personal Knowledge Management or personal learning networks) is an individual, disciplined process by which we make sense of information, observations and ideas. I’m running a one-day workshop with University of Toronto’s iSchool Institute on 27 May 2011.

I am writing this on the plane to Hong Kong where I am doing a couple of workshops and then off to Washington for a meeting of The World Bank's Knowledge Management Commission which isn't really on the way home!! I reckon I can write that title as it does feel as if I have "done" all of it - or at least a lot of it. Twenty individual events in thirty six days, four long haul flights within Australia crossing the country from all angles, and lots of small flights and car drives.

blog posting regarding what I witnessed as the death of Knowledge Management in the U.S. Within the email exchange, I was asked a question – what do I see as the difference between Information Management and Knowledge Management? It is folly to ever call it knowledge, because that is the domain of the brain. Of course, I speak here of individual knowledge. The difficulty is applying this understanding to organizational knowledge.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] learning and the future of work
| TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2015
The last personal knowledge mastery in 40 days online workshop for 2015 started this week. Both complex and creative work require greater implicit knowledge. Implicit knowledge, unlike explicit knowledge, is difficult to codify and standardize. Implicit knowledge is best developed through conversations and social relationships. Social networks can enable better and faster knowledge feedback for people who trust each other and share their knowledge.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] From observation to breakthrough
| SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2012
It also aligns with personal knowledge management ( PKM ) or those routine behaviours that we can practice and perfect in order to enhance learning and innovation at an organizational level. We use our understanding of our communities and networks to discern with whom and when to share our knowledge. From multiple observations come ideas. From multiple ideas can come new insights. From multiple insights we can create stories. From our stories, we can change beliefs.
ROSS DAWSON [Knowledge Management] The focus of big data should be creating value FOR customers
| WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2014
In the mid-1990s I became involved in knowledge management. So I wrote my first book, Developing Knowledge-Based Client Relationships , to frame knowledge as primarily about creating value WITH the customer. Big Data is one of the hottest trends at the moment, as shown in this Google Trends chart below. However much of the big data discussion is about how to market better to customers, gathering data ABOUT them so companies can sell more to them.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] A simple approach to KM
| MONDAY, MARCH 10, 2014
Knowledge management (KM) does not have to be a major enterprise effort. But the lack of KM strategy can be a drag on innovation or hamper decision-making in a knowledge intensive organization. This is mostly explicit knowledge that ensures the organizational memory remains clear on what key decisions were taken and why others were not. This will reflect implicit knowledge more so than the other two levels, and individuals can share their PKM as they see fit.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Organizational Learning in the Network Era
| THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2014
Edwards Deming, American management visionary, understood that systemic factors account for most organizational problems, and changing these has more potential for improvement than changing any individual’s performance. Therefore the role of executives should be to manage the system, not individuals. But the real barrier to systemic change is hierarchical management, as it constrains the sharing of power, a necessary enabler of organizational learning.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Connecting learning and work and life
| SUNDAY, AUGUST 19, 2012
This is the premise of personal knowledge management. In discussing how communities of practice can bridge the gap between innovation (new ideas) and getting work done (usually in project or work teams), I derived this graphic. For a detailed explanation of my thinking behind this, see my presentation on communities and the coherent enterprise.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Shifting responsibility by taking responsibility
| MONDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2013
Knowledge workers collectively make the relationship capital that creates value in the network era. They need to be not just knowledgeable, but creative as well. Knowledge workers need to take control of their networked learning. We need to build our own knowledge networks; seeking out others, sense-making, and sharing. I think that the principles of PKM can be the foundation for an aggressively intelligent citizenry that manages its own media.

In the latter, “ Literacy becomes a wide range of evolving information skills developed around the activities of learning – the ability to acquire knowledge and skills through the resourceful and responsible utilization of information. ” Self-instruction, the basis of personal knowledge management , is a necessity in effective peer-to-peer networks, as networks are how we will govern ourselves more and more.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Enterprise 2.0 transition
| THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012
The E20 Meetup in Paris today discussed the role of “Organizational Development” (OD) and “Human Ressource Management” (HR) in the Enterprise 2.0 I have not seen organizations move toward a more social business model without changing management. That may mean reducing the number of managers; empowering people who are customer-facing; or significantly opening up the workflow and making it more transparent.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Activate your knowledge
| WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2013
Most of all, PKM is a framework to actually do knowledge work. It is a framework that helps move from an awareness of knowledge to activation of its use in the context of getting work done. My earliest inspiration on the power of personal knowledge management came from Lilia Efimova and her research on blogging as knowledge work. Activation of knowledge happens in the context of tasks and so the cycle continues.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Starting to work out loud
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2012
Most people are too busy managing in the industrial/information age workplace and have no slack to try to learn how work in the network age. I strongly suggest that the first step of starting to work out loud, as part of personal knowledge management, has to be as simple as possible. John Stepper discusses how people can get started working out loud and shows examples of different types of networks that one could connect with.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM: The Book
| WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 2012
I have been writing about personal knowledge management on this blog since 2004. The more and better we share our knowledge, the more resilient become our networks. With each workshop I see people whose eyes are opened to the possibilities of sharing, cooperating, and co-creating knowledge. It could be a great opportunity to show your investment in promoting knowledge work and intra-organizational cooperation.

Personal Knowledge Mastery. Harvard Business Review described The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge, as one of the seminal management books of the previous 75 years. Personal knowledge mastery ( PKM ) is a framework I have developed over the past 12 years. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts as we build on the knowledge of others. As knowledge workers or citizens, PKM is our part of the social learning contract.

Senior managers need to understand social media in order to support learning in social networks which will enable practitioners to produce results.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Absorbing complexity with PKM
| MONDAY, MARCH 24, 2014
One of the most spectacular possibilities that social technologies offer is that our individual creativity and knowledge is exponentially expanded by connecting to our personal networks – both within and outside organisational boundaries. The process of seeking out people and information sources, making sense of them by taking some action, and then sharing with others to confirm or accelerate our knowledge, are those activities from which we can build our knowledge.

| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012
I think it boils down to three things: Openness, Knowledge-sharing, and Diversity. If workers cannot connect with anyone they need to, then the knowledge needed to address a problem may never be revealed to those who need it. People need to practice knowledge-sharing through the narration of work and personal knowledge management.

A recent posting for a six-week knowledge management contract was posted by the UNDP. The only way to enable the latter is to get everyone involved in knowledge sharing and then harvest what emerges. Here is a simple guide on how to enable organizational sense-making, not the mere management of data and metrics. Establish methods that enable tacit knowledge to flow. Examples of knowledge-sharing need to be made by decision-makers.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Prepare for the future of work

This is what personal knowledge management is all about. It starts by seeking people and knowledge sources and the Seek-Sense-Share cycle finishes by sharing with communities and social networks. My recent workshops, both online and in person, indicate a need for PKM skills in all types of organizations and for people at all levels, from freelancers, researchers, managers, executives and more.

” Initial inspiration for PKM came from Lilia Efimova , whose blog was a view on her doctoral research into knowledge-sharing. Dave Snowden’s views on complexity and knowledge management have informed much of my work, and I have watched his thoughts evolve over time, shared through his blog. It’s International Working Out Loud Week , also known as #WOLWeek. Working Out Loud is a relatively new term for me, picking it up from John Stepper in 2012.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Organizations, work, and learning
| TUESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2014
It is an overview of personal knowledge mastery ( PKM ). Key point: The mainstream application of knowledge management and learning management over the past few decades is mostly wrong; we over-managed information, knowledge, and learning, because it was easy to do so. Key point: Knowledge in a networked society is different from what many of us grew up with in the pre-Internet days. Key point: Organizations have to become knowledge networks.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Networked Learning (PKM) Workshop in Toronto
| SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2011
My consulting work this past year has shown a great need for two aspects of knowledge-sharing in organizations: 1) systems & processes to enable better collaboration & sharing, and 2) individual skills in narrating work and learning in networks. Personal knowledge management (PKM) is an individual, disciplined process by which we make sense of information, observations and ideas. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts as we build on the knowledge of others.

Social media can facilitate the sharing of tacit knowledge through conversations to inform the collaborative development of emergent work practices.

| WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2013
Clark Quinn says that mobile technology makes a lot of sense, as “ it decouples that complementary capability from the desktop, and untethers our outboard brain “ Sense-making is a critical skill for most knowledge workers today, and frameworks like PKM can help. When I refer to personal knowledge management, especially my blog, I often call it my outboard brain. The future of workplace learning is social, cooperative and especially mobile.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] PKM and innovation
| TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2012
One way to practice these skills would be to promote personal knowledge management (PKM) in the workplace. Knowledge is the new capital, but it resides in each person’s head. To address complex problems, businesses have to rely more on individual tacit knowledge, but this type of knowledge is never easy to convey to others. In the FastCoDesign article, How do you create a culture of innovation?
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] What is thought to be is rarely real
| WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2014
As I described yesterday, my use of narrative started with the need to discover decisions and their nature as part of creating a bottom up approach to knowledge management strategy. I should say that this type if mapping is not just of value in knowledge management. Of course you can also ask questions of the decision clusters - more on that tomorrow - and that also feeds into the dependency matrix that is at the heart of this approach to knowledge strategy.

Last time (and too long ago) I talked about some general principles, many of them society based, which presented possible solutions to issues of knowledge retention. I have long argued that apprentice models were (and to a degree still are) the most effective model of knowledge creation and transfer that the human race has ever developed. Co-evolution of knowledge is an essential feature of an apprenticeship model. Now compare that with modern management development.

Organizations that deal with complex knowledge and require creativity from workers need looser hierarchies to maintain flexibility in dealing with changing situations. When the sharing of knowledge becomes one of our primary work activities, we have to be careful how we think about growth and management. Using terms like “scalable” and “knowledge” in a linear, accounting fashion can cloud our thinking.

An effective suite of enterprise social tools can help organizations share knowledge, collaborate, and cooperate – connecting the work being done with the identification of new opportunities and ideas. More employees are sharing knowledge through activity streams on platforms by IBM, SAP, Jive, Yammer, and Socialcast, to name a few. Due to the very personal and intimate nature of implicit knowledge, people will only freely share it if they feel they are in control.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] network management update
| TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 2016
You cannot manage a network. As networks become the dominant organizational form, the way we think about management has to change, as well as the way those in positions of authority try to influence others. Management in networks is fuzzy. Here is how I define network management: It is only through innovative and contextual methods, the self-selection of the most appropriate tools and work conditions, and willing cooperation that more creative work can be fostered.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Working in the dark
| THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2012
What may be considered a knowledge management problem, finding the right information at the right time, is really a transparency one. For more contextual knowledge, I ask my network via text message, Twitter, blog or forum. The reason I can do this is that either the knowledge or the knowledgeable person is visible on the web. I discuss transparency a lot on this blog. I see it as one of the three principles for net work.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Knowledge filters
| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011
Naive filtering is what too often happens in our knowledge searching. Expert filtering worked when knowledge was more stable but in an interconnected, interdependent, digital world we have to ask, who are the experts? You can also link to existing communities of expertise/interest such as KMers on knowledge management. Tweet. This graphic is part of the Seek-Sense-Share PKM model and is based on Five forms of filtering by Tim Kastelle.

For example, after 6 months on the job, with access to micro-sharing, company blogs and the development of a personal knowledge management framework, you could ask similar questions. Do you have to regularly access information and knowledge to do your job? Have you learned to access information and knowledge faster than when you started 6 months ago?
JANE HART [Knowledge Management] Pick of the Month: April 2012
| TUESDAY, MAY 1, 2012
If the diversity is valued, then the pedagogy must do away from its ‘one size fits all’ approach, and accept that the twenty first century of globalisation demands a different understanding of knowledge use and that this has implications for the use of technology. Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) skills. It could be a neat way to make sense of all the knowledge out there, by keeping the best learning bytes on a collaborative learning playlist.

DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Resonance in meaning
| SATURDAY, JULY 1, 2017
Many moons ago in the early days of knowledge management I argued that the ubiquitous DIKW pyramid was both flawed and dangerous. I was speaking before one idiot who was setting out his stall as the founding father if wisdom management. Those of us managing knowledge were obvious an inferior form of life. The father of wisdom management didn’t realise he was being satirised and for the next year kept wanting to come and talk to his wisdom board about ER.
JAY CROSS [Knowledge Management] Do your business
| TUESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2011
Notions like corporate culture, the learning organization, and knowledge management are lagging indicators. Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy. Blaming organizational problems on corporate culture is like saying something’s a communications problem: it doesn’t get you anywhere. The purpose of business is business. These days the goal is often to become a responsive, real-time business. The organization is what supports doing business better.

“Are there new ways to think about our digital workplace skills that allows us to take our thinking up to a new plane, the next meta-level of thinking and working where we have much higher leverage, can manage change that is an order of magnitude or greater in volume than today, work in fundamentally better and smarter new ways — and perhaps even work a bit less — yet produce much more value?”.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Talking about the Network Era
| SUNDAY, DECEMBER 29, 2013
Professional knowledge distribution will move away from institutionalized business schools into networked communities of practice. Self-instruction, the basis of personal knowledge management , will be a requirement in a growing number of peer-to-peer networks. New language for this principle is popping up everywhere – knowledge networks, intranets, communities of practice, systems thinking, swarming, social software, social networks, tipping points.

BETH KANTER [Knowledge Management] Learning is the Work
| TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 2014
Last month, I had the pleasure of participating in National eXtension Conference which was amazing for many reasons. I first did several professional sessions with this network back in 2007 and an online class on knowledge sharing and online collaboration – so it was great to long-time colleagues. The highlight was a master panel with Dave Gray, Harold Jarche, and Jane Hart on connected learning and culture change needed to embrace this type of learning.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Of experts and expertise
| SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2014
A long time ago when I first created the Cynefin framework in its five domain form my focus was on knowledge management. The first fully worked article looked at communities and deployment of knowledge and in those versions I talked about complicated (then called knowable) as the domain of experts. CoPs were then held to be the best way to host and develop expert knowledge, so calling it the domain of experts made sense.
CLARK QUINN [Knowledge Management] Org Development and Social Media
| WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2011
As the pieces of companies become densely interconnected, the differences between knowledge management, training, collaborative learning, organization development, internal communication, and social networking fade away. However, some of these fields are reasonably technology savvy, while others are more focused effective people processes. On principle (and for pragmatic reasons), I regularly think about how to define what I do, and to look for areas that are related.

I mean, if you look into it, within the corporate world, all along, we have always defaulted to work in private, close silos with team colleagues whom we knew rather well , or even just our very own selves, as we have kept protecting and hoarding our own knowledge thinking that would make us all become indispensable to the business. Remember the good old mantra of “ Knowledge is power ”?
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] How blogging changed my life for the better
| MONDAY, APRIL 30, 2012
My blog is a key part of my professional development and essential to my personal knowledge management processes. I guess I could be described as a hardcore blogger, as I’ve been writing here for over eight years. So I’m going to respond to Hugh MacLeod’s question about the importance of blogging to me. Like I said many times before, for those of us crazy enough to take it seriously, blogging matters, so does freedom, that’s why I wrote the book.

I think I first came across the T-shape concept – combining breadth and depth – in the well-known 2001 Harvard Business Review article Introducing T-Shaped Managers: Knowledge Management’s Next Generation. Today I can hardly say I have world-class expertise in the field, however the depth of knowledge I had in the past means I still understand the fundamentals of the space, and is highly complementary to the new skills I have acquired more recently.
STEPHEN DOWNES: HALF AN HOUR [Knowledge Management] Three Models of Knowledge Production
| WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010
And while there are different ways to think of knowledge - processed, procedural, propositional - this model I think adheres to a more basic view. The picture being presented by Jarche and his colleagues adhere to a 'mining' model of knowledge management (from which we get phrases like 'data mining'). It should be contrasted with some alternatives: knowledge production as mining - on this view, data is like a raw material that is searched for and retrieved.

In parallel I’m finishing off material for the new Cynefin Centre Masters programme which may be called The Management Apprenticeship , although the Trump associations might trigger a switch to Journey(wo)man or similar!

The vexed question of certification came up in conversation yesterday.
