Building a Solid Library of Use Cases

Luis Suarez

I have been advocating for social software tools (as an opportunity to explore their huge potential in terms of how they help us become more effective at what we do by becoming more open, collaborative and innovative) from as early as 2000, when I was first exposed to different instances of blogs and wikis, whether inside or outside of the firewall, along with what today would be known as social profiles.

Two months of blogging

Dave Snowden

Someone also tried to be clever by asking for a translation of a phrase used I one blog (quoted in social media out of context and that resulted in a polemical blog with a Welsh theme on the need for people to be more open to being challenged and educated.

What is thought to be is rarely real

Dave Snowden

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. This can use predetermined categories relevant to the organisation or can just be left open. It's an open source method but I'd recommend mentoring the first time you run it.

Scaling knowledge

Harold Jarche

People who participate in structures like open source software projects can join and connect to others at will. Designers of these open organizational structures understand that in complex un-order, loose hierarchies and strong networks are best. Organizations that deal with complex knowledge and require creativity from workers need looser hierarchies to maintain flexibility in dealing with changing situations.

The aging workforce (part 3)

Dave Snowden

In my two earlier posts on this subject I started by challenging the knowledge management orthodoxy of codification and then proceeded to make some more sophisticated points about the nature of explicit knowledge. In particular I argued that explicit knowledge arises as a result of and complement to, tacit knowledge. A wholly explicit knowledge is unthinkable. while valuable in creating works of art was not valuable as a knowledge repository.

Click here to enlarge Today, while other areas of information publishing have experienced tremendous cost efficiencies and scalability through single-source development, content reusability and cross-platform delivery, eLearning has barely budged from its tactical approach. That’s because rapid eLearning has nothing to do with the learner and everything to do with the Instructional Designer and how they want you to see their knowledge.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

” This is why I think personal knowledge management is so important. I want every knowledge worker to discover his or her own processes. I recently wrote about PKM and innovation and concluded that in order 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. I discussed knowledge artisans in my recent white paper , and what follows is an excerpt.

Meaning & the content heresy

Dave Snowden

Nothing to be honest you can't do in Facebook, but there are approaches that take this approach and it has utility for storage, but not really for research and only partially for knowledge management. Instead of asking Does your manager consult you on a regular basis? Just to make it clear, while most of our methods are open source, the methods of self-signification outlined here are patent pending so they are not open source and are a part of SenseMaker®.

Harold: Having had the advantage of starting this early is that it was small and there really was this openness, transparency, democratic sharing, open source everybody thinks of. So a network is this very loose, open thing. The stuff I’ve got and explicit knowledge.

Social Media Goals

Clark Quinn

Drupal is an open source CMS that’s been used for social media, and Elgg similarly started as an open source portfolio tool but has expanded. Vignette’s story about building on their core content management system supporting knowledge management makes sense from the point of view of mining value out of the discussions. A more direct measure, the knowledge grown, seems to be a really exciting opportunity.

Bullet Journaling for Nonprofit Professionals

Beth Kanter

Planning and managing in different time “resolutions” : future log, monthly log, daily log. It doesn’t fully replace digital tools for project management (especially when many people are involved or code is developed), or organizational knowledge management tools. For me, BuJo makes time management and planning more enjoyable. Also, in a way, BuJo is an open source movement with its basics, many versions and user community.

Identifying a collaboration platform

The options then become: Open the LMS so it can be used in the daily workflow. I’ve noted before that the main objective of the modern training department should be to enable knowledge to flow in the organization. Work with management to fund and develop better tools and processes for workers. This is a follow-up from yesterday’s post that the LMS is no longer the centre of the universe and Jane Hart’s post today on A Transition Path to the Future.

Sense-making with PKM

Harold Jarche

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. We constantly go through a process of looking at bits of information and trying to make sense of them by adding to our existing knowledge or testing out new patterns in our sense-making efforts. Tags are labels that can be attached to digital knowledge objects and an objects can have many labels.

The key to understanding what’s going on

Jay Cross

Extreme swings toward technology and institutions were Taylor’s Scientific Management, robber barons, Business Process Reengineering, and narrowly-defined eLearning (removing all the people to make it work.) The pendulum had swung far in the opposite direction when we had flower children, itinerant hippies, anti-war protests, and, more recently, the Open Source movement and the proliferation of blogs. Knowledge management and corporate learning may never be the same.

I’m also interested in the use of open source software platforms for learning. 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.

Innovation Geography Based and Innovation in eLearning

Tony Karrer

Because I believe that innovation in classic eLearning (courseware based) is lessening and the opportunities are going to fall to providing open-source, free-hosted and other commodity type solutions.

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. The employee goes to Google, dives into Wikipedia and other open source efforts. 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.? Stuart Henshall had asked on Twitter about ideas for posts.

Less-democratic processes will lead to a clearer distinction between expert-generated knowledge and the overwhelming quantity of information available everyplace, making it easier to discern information quality. Predicted: The "middle path"—proprietary lock-in services, like Vista, iTunes, Facebook, and Second Life, will be abandoned for more open commercial alternatives rather than free and open source software and content.

Harold Jarche

The market form, the third form of organization to take hold, enables people to excel at openly competitive, free, and fair economic exchanges. There are strong indicators that society is heading toward a quadriform structuring (T+I+M+N) with network culture dominating in many fields: open source insurgencies , Blockchain financial transactions, political manipulation through networks, crowdfunding , etc. All of these can be done at a manageable scale.

The revolution brewing in the world of work: Q&A with Rod Collins

Steve Denning

Is it also about management? Rod : The book is actually about both leadership and management. I used leadership rather than management in the title because there seems to be more interest these days in leadership over management. Perhaps this is a result of the popular notions that leadership is "in" and "management is "out" and that leaders "lead people" while managers merely "manage things."
