Institutional Memory and Knowledge Management

Harold Jarche

The main themes are: Memories are captured as knowledge artifacts, each limited by what it can convey, depending on its nature and the knowledge of recipient. Knowledge management can provide a structure to capture institutional memory, but it requires more than one approach.

Knowledge Management for Decision Memories

Harold Jarche

As Brian Gongol notes: If a capital project has an expected service life of 20 to 30 years, it’s entirely possible that people working in an institution in their 20s will be middle or upper-level managers in the same institution by the time the project has to be replaced or upgraded.

From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management

Jane Hart

But in fact it has been clear for some time that many individuals are already taking responsibility for not only acquiring new knowledge and skills but for a wide range of activities for their continuous learning and professional development. So how effective are your own PKM skills?

Personal Knowledge Management

Jay Cross

Teach a man to fish… PKM: Figuring out what’s important to you, how to find it, how to keep up with it, how to make sense of it, how to recall it when you need it anew, and how to share it with others — this is ground zero for mining the riches of the web.

personal knowledge management & wisdom

Harold Jarche

PKM consists of practical methods for making sense of the increasing digital information flows around us. And while there are different ways to think of knowledge – processed, procedural, propositional – this model I think adheres to a more basic view.

PKM Roles

Harold Jarche

I like to frame personal knowledge management as a combination of seeking knowledge, making sense of it, and sharing it with others. Over 10 years ago Patrick Lambe wrote a very good guide on the various roles one can have in PKM.

Why PKM?

Harold Jarche

This helps me get my ideas together, in a more manageable format than a full-length paper. Knowledge Management for Decision Memories. With a searchable knowledge base of thousands of blog posts and social bookmarks, all curated by me, I can see the value of PKM every day.

Absorbing complexity with PKM

Harold Jarche

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. Sense-making is acting on one’s knowledge.

PKM as pre-curation

Harold Jarche

The most important part of personal knowledge management (PKM), in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making. One strength of PKM is the “manual” nature of sense-making activities. The knowledge gained from PKM is an emergent property of all its activities.

The PKM value-add

Harold Jarche

During my online conversation ( recording on YouTube ) with Jane Hart yesterday, we discussed personal knowledge management (PKM) and one very important aspect, in my opinion, is the need for active sense-making. Merely tagging an article does not create knowledge.

PKM and competitive intelligence

Harold Jarche

You may not need to hire anyone else to collate the data, but if you do, keep your team (who have industry knowledge) involved. Marketing, sales, developers and management should be actively involved. CI, like knowledge management, needs people to be continuously involved and engaged.

Barriers to PKM

Harold Jarche

A few weeks ago I asked my extended online network, “ What do you think is the biggest fear/need/barrier when it comes to adopting personal knowledge management (PKM) as a practice? Management thinks PKM is only for certain, higher-level employees (it’s not).

PKM and MOOC

Harold Jarche

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. In the complex domain , combining PKM with more structure for social learning, using the MOOC format, can be an important addition to how workplace learning is supported.

PKM is not a technology

Harold Jarche

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. If anyone is selling you a PKM system, they do not understand it.

PKM: the basic unit of social business

The main benefits for networked organizations do not lie in the outcome from teams, but in individual knowledge acquisition, in the ability to connect with the right people and to access the right information at the right time. Teams are for sports, not knowledge work.
