DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Abrogation not assumption
| SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 2010
The fundamental error from my perspective is linked with the basic error in knowledge management, namely the tyranny of the explicit. It used to be a process of judgement (a word sadly missing in management these days) to determine pay for people who reported to you. It required the ability to defend a judgement based on knowledge of the individual. Managing people should be about exercising human judgement and taking responsibility for human decisions.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Good food and good company
| THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2009
Both old friends from the knowledge management world. His interest there is in large project management, and that got me on to the work with the AGILE and SCRUM communities on using Cynefin as a framework for understanding different approaches to management based on the level of constraint needed. I argued for an modular approach to project management, linking to Graham's view that projects should always be seen as a portfolio.

DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] The unmerciful seat
| MONDAY, AUGUST 3, 2009
That started as an adaption of Boisot's i-Space (then it was a two by two) for use in knowledge management, and then migrated into the five domain model over a few years. I spent form just after 1000 this morning until around 1530 sat on this stool with a break for lunch and the odd coffee. We had a great crew with Producer/Director, camera and sound and Chris sat in for good measure to advise and take notes. The idea was to professionally tape a load of material.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] The narrative papers
| WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23, 2013
There have been a fair number over the years, particularly in the area of knowledge management which is where all of this got started. Back in the Knowledge Management days I produced a lot of material in the more popular journals. Simple but not simplistic talks about seven characteristics of Story and expands again on the archetype work but also introduces the use of fables for managing the mission and values of an organisation.
STEVE DENNING [Knowledge Management] Laughter in the workplace
| SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2010
If you’re not hearing laughter, it’s a sign you’re still in the land of 20th Century management. The laughter of the new management is not laughter at the misfortunes of others or at those who have offended a powerful patron. By contrast, my encounters with traditional management were always deadly serious. In traditional management, the power structure is no laughing matter. In radical management, jokes about the hierarchy are possible.

Interesting things I learned on twitter this past week: American Bar Association article on Personal Knowledge Management. Lawyers are knowledge workers who must cope with an ever-increasing volume of information flowing within and outside of their workplaces. We have seen that this fact has important implications for the management of system design.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Innovation through network learning
| TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2010
Tim says that innovation is the process of idea management , which makes sense to me. Tim Kastelle introduced me to the concept of Aggregate-Filter-Connect for innovation, which I used for personal knowledge management (network learning) and later changed it to Seek-Sense-Share. Being an effective network learner is a basic skill for any knowledge worker today, and that’s pretty well anyone who wants to earn more than minimum wage. Tweet Innovation.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] On knowledge
| WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 2009
Some things I learned about knowledge this past year. About knowledge management : Codified knowledge (documents, lists, reports, best practices) is effective in organizations that have mostly new staff or high turnover, like a pizza franchise. Knowledge is the capacity for effective action (know how) and it is the only aspect of knowledge that really matters in life. While learning may be generated in teams, this type of knowledge comes and goes.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Why the Government of Canada needs PKM

However, blogging is not enough because managing information overload is more a question of attitude than skills. Blogs, or their equivalent, are only one part of the knowledge management equation. I think that public servants really need PKM ( personal knowledge management ). 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.

Great article by Dion Hinchcliffe - The State of Enterprise 2.0. Increasing evidence abounds that Enterprise 2.0 adoption has begun in earnest with a typical example being Wells Fargo taking the plunge , having rolled out Enterprise 2.0 platforms to 160,000 workers.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] A letter from Bad Homburg
| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2009
I started off with a key quote from Polyani, to argue (i) that Nonaka's SECI model was a gross and dangerous misinterpretation of tacit knowledge and (ii) that we need to aim for a synthesis of human and machine intelligence to enable, and enpower sense-making in organisations and society. While tacit knowledge can be possessed by itself, explicit knowledge must rely on being tacitly understood and applied. Hence all knowledge is either tacit or rooted in tacit knowledge.

DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] The tyrrany of the abstract symbolic
| THURSDAY, JUNE 24, 2010
The key quote here is this: If we think about apprentice models of knowledge transfer, we see the importance of acquiring experience over time for both knowledge transfer and development of the field as a whole. Contrast that with the simplistic approach to complex situations involved in the sick stigma cult and the focus of knowledge management on the hopeless task of making tacit knowledge explicit.

Today's Dilbert raised one of the classic issues in knowledge management. Back in the 1990s people argued that core knowledge walked out of the door each evening and might not return. The solution to this was to codify that knowledge so that it existed independently of the knowledge holder and thus became a corporate asset not a private one. Dilbert is one of the issues raised today in a classic knowledge management.

I was and remain dubious that knowledge is an capital asset within the normal meaning of the word. Knowledge is primarily a capability and changing the name was one idea that Karl and I discussed. Principle is to simplify then exaggerate to communicate knowledge effectively.

DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Gott ist tot (or reflections on KM keynotes)
| TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2010
November has of recent years become the month in which I think about Knowledge Management. OK the proper objects of KM, decision making & innovation I think about a lot, but the world has moved on and the KM language tends not to be associated with them outside of Government, the legal profession and some engineering organisations.
DAVID GURTEEN [Knowledge Management] Blog Post: Hot tweets: July 2010

Other then my website and this knowledge letter of course, it is one of my main ways of sharing and communicating. Knowledge for the Public Good (Societal Knowledge Management) [link] #KM. Questioning the use of targets in a world that has been taught that if it cannot be measured, it cannot be managed [link].

DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Information ecologies
| SATURDAY, MARCH 6, 2010
I was part of a small but select group discussing the information ecology of crisis management. There was a general recognition that the old style information centric knowledge management approach would not work (although many government agencies are going down that path). An interesting day yesterday in New York.

Dale is Director, ABS Knowledge Management (Australian Bureau of Statistics) and starts by telling us its a story of failure! The initiative was mandated top down for the IT people (around 400) following a consultancy recommendation to senior management (there in lies many a story of failure). Attention increases in the audience. They had one of the early, and sophisticated Lotus Notes systems.

Narrative approaches to knowledge management. Bereavement management Northern Ireland Health Service. I will be flying on to Australia Sunday for a couple of weeks before moving on to the US. The week starts in Perth with a seminar on complexity and then a project start up on indigenous issues. Wednesday is Canberra for a range of meetings and one public slot for ActKM at the National Archives. That runs 1500-1700 and the only cost is a donation to afternoon tea.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] Change for Cognitive Edge

A second will focus on social computing and the links to knowledge management. One of the best books I have ever read on marketing is Moore's Crossing the Chasm. It looks at different periods in the life cycle of a product or service and identifies different strategies that should be adopted. In the early days you tend to deal with enthusiasts who know as much about the subject as you, so selling is conceptual or detailed.
TONY KARRER [Knowledge Management] Where Will the Change Come From?

What's likely to happen here is that all sorts of innovation in learning, knowledge management, etc. A few weeks ago, I posted a summary around the November LCB Big Question "Are ISD / ADDIE / HPT relevant in a world of rapid elearning, faster time-to-performance, and informal learning?": eLearning Technology: Significant Work Needed to Help Instructional Designers Some interesting thoughts in the comments.

These groups assemble to achieve distinctive aims and to provide the satisfactions of sociability…Management thinkers, influenced by economists, have been slower to see the importance of social groups in organizations.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Normal isn’t normal anymore
| FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2010
Trends in Knowledge Management – “a short synthesis & worth a read : Traditionally, KM was more often than not a top-down driven approach. For example, document taxonomies and knowledge sharing procedures were defined; identified experts shared their knowledge in defined communities. The traditional approach to workplace learning has been about managing and controlling the learning experience, keeping it really top down.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Talking about PKM
| TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2010
KMers.org runs a regular TweetChat on knowledge management (KM) issues and today’s was on Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) , with the following agenda: What effective means have we found to aggregate, filter and share information? — @markgould13 For me, PKM is a precursor for social knowledge sharing, so I use Delicious, Twitter and Wordpress. — @petertwo Incentive for PKM is PCM (Personal Career Management).
CLARK QUINN [Knowledge Management] Training Specialist
| WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2008
To me if you make the definition of "e-learning" so expansive (and yes, I realize there is overlap between e-learning and knowledge management but to classify knowledge management activities as learning seem silly) it makes the term almost meaningless. Yes, everything you do should be about learning and creating knowledge, but this is different from Learning with a Big-L and little-l learning.
CLARK QUINN [Knowledge Management] Learning Quotient?
| THURSDAY, MAY 1, 2014
I had the good fortune to be invited to the Future of Work event that was held here in Silicon Valley two weeks ago, and there were four breakouts, one of which was on learning and knowledge management. You can guess which one I was on (though tempted by the leadership and culture one; there was overlap). Within that breakout the activity was to pick four topics and further break out.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Knowledge Transfer
| WEDNESDAY, JUNE 2, 2010
I have accepted a term contract as Knowledge Transfer and Partnerships Officer in Research Services. I also intend to discuss issues around technology and knowledge transfer in the context of higher education. You can expect more knowledge management type discussions. This will definitely be a learning experience and I look forward to expanding my network and my knowledge.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Information is free; Experience is expensive

juneholley: Emergence and management. Yes, it is certainly true that the role of managers is probably exaggerated (with their pay). But the project of changing management is unnecessary. Over-managed firms will self-destruct, possibly at great cost to themselves and others, simply because managers have to be paid for and management that is not necessary simply makes a firm unwieldy, inefficient and unprofitable.

HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Work is learning, learning work
| FRIDAY, MAY 1, 2009
My current interest in Web social media is that these tools and platforms give us a better way to engage in collaborative work and help us integrate learning into our daily pratice, such as personal knowledge management. As host of this month’s Working / Learning Blog Carnival , David Wilkins challenged participants to think about the intersections between working and learning: When does work become learning? When does learning become work?
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] The future of certification
| TUESDAY, JANUARY 27, 2009
For example, I think technology in learning and performance is at this point a core skill, as are informal learning approaches and sister competencies such as knowledge management and performance consulting. At some point in the life of a discipline there is a drive toward certification. Want to be a real estate agent ? It’s a quality thing, so we’re told.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Network Learning
| WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2010
Tweet I mentioned in my last post that the term “personal knowledge management ( PKM ) does not adequately describe the sense-making process that I attribute to it. It’s rather obvious that knowledge cannot be managed, as Dave Jonassen has said many times: Every amateur epistemologist knows that knowledge cannot be managed. Sharing knowledge produces network effects.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Personal Information Management for Sense-making
| TUESDAY, AUGUST 24, 2010
Tweet George Siemens calls it information management (what I describe as PKM). I specifically use the term information instead of knowledge. We encounter a continual flow of information – most of it will never become “knowledge”. From my perspective, the knowledge aspect of PKM is an emergent property of the activities conducted, many of which are merely information management. For sure, merely tagging an article does not create knowledge.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] From Mark Twain to the Future
| FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2010
Has Knowledge Management Been Bad For Us? But I think we’re missing the point about the real value of knowledge. Here are some of the things I learned on Twitter this past week: Mark Twain’s Posthumous Bombshells by @cburell. Why is Mark Twain’s autobiography only coming out now, 100 years after his death? Because he stipulated so before dying.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Schwerpunkt: Management
| THURSDAY, JULY 8, 2010
Human Resources (HR) seem to be out out of sync with organizational needs as well, nicely summed up in a recent FastCompany article: I think successful organizations are very rigorous and creative about getting profitable work from their employees, their managers, and their business units. But the real culprit is management and that’s what needs to change. The fundamental assumptions, attitudes and values are at odds with those of traditional management.
HAROLD JARCHE [Knowledge Management] Learning is the Work
| FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 2010
One of the most effective mechanisms for knowledge transfer which has emerged in human history is the apprentice scheme. While in the early stages of knowledge transfer there was a degree of rote learning, increasingly the apprentice learnt by practice and by tolerated failure.

One role that will likely gain importance is that of Community Manager. The role of community manager in an organization will be to manage organizational communities of practice, communities of interest and have an understanding of some of the other communities that touch each of us. Workplace-related communities often address only the knowledge and economic aspects but as human beings we need more.

My personal knowledge base is now over 1,400 blog posts with +3,000 comments. I have settled on an average of 15 per month which seems to be enough for personal knowledge management (implicit => explicit) and I don’t feel under pressure to publish.

One of these is to use SenseMaker® to provide a more effective feed into Net Promoter Score (NPS) and the other with a similar dramatise personæ to start the process of formalising our knowledge management offering. The market life cycle has moved on and our offering strategy needs to reflect that much of the work we (and others) have done to establish complexity as a new approach to management is paying off.

In keeping with that philosophy we seek to move on from the case-based approach that dominates social and management science, shifting to a model in which theory and practice coevolve to create effective and resilient solutions to intractable problems in both government and industry. Applications include culture & attitudinal mapping, organisational change, market research, knowledge management, and impact monitoring.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] On writing

I managed to write a whole article from start to finish today. I can say that as Jim has accepted it without knowledge of the creative process! Getting user orientated articles out was one of the things the Institute for Knowledge Management was measured on so it was a necessary feature of life.
DAVE SNOWDEN [Knowledge Management] The place of belonging
| THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2013
The new move is to allow direct entry to senior ranks without first spending time on the beat as a constable and makes the classic knowledge management error of ignoring the need for experience and ritual in creating identity. We manage the emergence of beneficial coherence within attractors, within boundaries. By managing what we can we now only do more with less, but we also allow locally contextual solutions to emerge. I was thinking a lot about identity today.
STEVE DENNING [Knowledge Management] The Leader's Guide to Radical Management: The myth of the single.
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2010
Instead better “ execution ” or “ playing hardball ” or “ ruthless management ” will save us. If not, then surely better “ talent management ” or becoming a " learning organization " will do. Then again, some think “ knowledge management ” will help us learn. None of them will address the complex array of problems that management now faces. Again to management's astonishment, traditional hierarchy suddenly doesn’t work any more.
