Knowledge Management Core Issues

Tony Karrer

With an ever deceasing half-life of knowledge , just keeping up has become a major corporate imperative. We have made little progress in preventing those repeating errors, as firms grow in size and complexity, building relationships that enable knowledge flows, keeping in the loop and finding stuff becomes a huge issue. Discovering opportunities and gaps in knowledge flows, improving personal networking and finding experts (in larger firms).

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

This sounds a lot like a personal learning environment, personal knowledge management (PKM) and personal work and learning environment (PWLE) and PIM. Tool Sets are Personal A caveat that I make in every presentation on this topic is that studies of personal information management repeatedly show that tool sets and methods for personal work and learning are personal.

Reduce Searching Start Talking

Tony Karrer

I just saw When Knowledge Management Hurts … Professors Martine Haas from the Wharton School and Morten Hansen from INSEAD , for example, examined the use of internal knowledge systems by teams of consultants in one of the big four accountancy firms trying to win sales bids. They figured that, surely, accessing more knowledge must be helpful, right? So I naturally looked at the citation to read the details … Does Knowledge Sharing Deliver on Its Promises?

Online Coaching

Tony Karrer

A culture that provides access to other people who support learning in a wide variety of ways Easy access to materials that support learning Skills in utilizing electronic tools to manage learning. In other words, possibly supporting ongoing learning to build management skills for a group of new managers. For a knowledge worker, generally its something like the start of a new project or a new kind of situation that sparks the need for learning.

Tony Karrer

Some include Knowledge Management as a form of e-learning. How do you separate knowledge management from eLearning?

Personal Learning Knowledge Work Environment

Tony Karrer

world that included a post by Bill Ives - Managing Personal Knowledge: Setting a Foundation for Transformation? adoption is getting folks to manage their personal knowledge and adopt practices like blogging for personal knowledge management (PKM) and personal learning. Learning-Knowledge-Work - they really are the same and I need to do them all at once. If you make these independent and distinct, it will be really annoying for us knowledge workers.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

This is something that gets discussed as emergent: see Emergent Knowledge Management , Direction of eLearning - Emergence or Big System , and Future Platforms for eLearning. Selling the Value Often it can be tricky to convince management of the value of providing these tools. Change Management – Ready for It / Culture - Incrementally moving into it is needed. Management Take it Seriously – Definitely an issue.

Training Method Trends

Clark Quinn

LMS - Learning Management Systems - are growing at one of the fastest rates of any of the established methods. I'm not surprised, but I'm sure there continues to be pain ( Learning Management Systems (LMS) Gotchas , Tracking Without an LMS , LMS Dissatisfaction on the Rise , Do You WANT an LMS? Some differences: Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) show greater increase in education - good luck with that.

In one, Nancy White talks about triangulating internal training and capacity building with external actors who part of the training and who validate it; that leads to more connections between people and has gained manager support. I've known Nancy White and John Smith for quite a while.

We will bring together people who look at different aspects of learning and knowledge work to understand better what's going on in those areas and how we should be thinking about this holistically. What should L&D managers be doing relative to these related efforts?

Getting Started

Tony Karrer

I am hopeful that a few will take on a self-directed learning task around some of the things I talked about in Tool Set to develop their own knowledge and proficiency, but certainly they would not be spearheading any broader learning mix initiatives anytime soon.

Drafting a program to teach adults to use the right means of knowledge transfer is probably at least as difficult as teaching children to be discerning about information accessible on the Internet.

Workplace Learning Professionals Next Job - Management Consultant

Tony Karrer

But there was another significant trend in the answers… Learning and Work Converge In a world where Knowledge Work and Learning is Inseparable , finding ways to support and improve work is the same as finding ways to support and improve learning. Jay Cross in Ten Years After puts it: In a knowledge society, learning is the work. Isn't that the definition of management. The main objective of the new training department is to enable knowledge to flow in the organization.

Develop Work Skills

Tony Karrer

There are also several studies of knowledge worker practices that suggest that a lot of what is effective is quite personal. It's always interesting to hear the perspective of someone with a background in Knowledge Management discussing these things. How can the organization capture the knowledge, learning, etc.? This will hurt them greatly as knowledge workers going forward and hurt their organizations who will have marginal learner workers

Thomas Davenport and Blogging - He is Wrong!

Tony Karrer

I've been slowly making my way through Thomas Davenport's book Thinking for a Living - How to Get Better Performance and Results from Knowledge Workers. Bill Ives argues that his own blog is really a vehicle for managing his own personal knowledge. If this particular use of blogs caught on broadly, it could represent a new approach to organizational knowledge management.

Learning Responsibility

Tony Karrer

He points out that we have responsibility around: Wide range of approaches (resources and job aids, portals, knowledge management, eCommunity, coaching, mentoring, informal learning, etc.), The big question for March 2008 is - Scope of Learning Responsibility? Karl Kapp helped me pull this question together and it's been interesting to see the responses so far. I wanted to capture some thoughts as I've been reading these posts so far.

FAQ 2

Enterprise 2.0 Has Arrived

Tony Karrer

Keep in mind Knowledge Management (KM). And my firm conclusion is that there are many new methods, skills, tools, knowledge around how to accomplish our work and learning (see Needed Skills for New Media ). 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.

Looking Back at 2007

Tony Karrer

Retooling my knowledge I've been paid to be a CTO type consultant on a broad range of topics. And if you are talking Reusable Learning Objects, Courseware Templates, Tracking Mechanisms, Content Management, etc. Of course, since I'm truly believe that the form of what we will be building in the future is changing and things like RLOs and Courseware are going to become much less important, then my current knowledge base seems diminished.

New Meme - Media I Consume - How about a change?

Tacit vs. Explicit Knowledge - Decisions Learning Professionals Make Everyday

Tony Karrer

A post by Jack Vinson pointed me to What's so great about tacit knowledge? and What's So Great About Tacit Knowledge? Basically, a lot of what we do in Workplace Learning is trying to extract tacit knowledge (in people's heads), make it explicit (write it down) and then we even turn it into something that can be learned so it will become tacit knowledge in our learners heads. He essentially argues that its only a matter of cost of extracting tacit knowledge.
