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?

Why PKM?

Harold Jarche

I was recently asked by a friend if I knew of any resources on the subject. This helps me get my ideas together, in a more manageable format than a full-length paper. By making these public, I often find out about related resources, recommended by readers.

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.

Somebody else, outside the hierarchy, is only one click away, and perhaps easier to deal with and a better source of information and knowledge. This is becoming obvious in the business world and frameworks such as Social CRM (customer relationship management) are one attempt to address it.

A simple approach to KM

Harold Jarche

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. Forcing PKM does not work. I would then work on PKM skills development.

An organizational knowledge-sharing framework

Harold Jarche

There is a lot of knowledge in an organization, some of it easy to codify (capture), and much (most) of it difficult to do so. Understanding how best to commit resources for knowledge-sharing should be in some kind of a decision-making framework that is easy for anyone to understand.

A personal learning journey

Harold Jarche

I became interested in knowledge management (KM) as I was introduced to it in the mid 1990’s while practising instructional systems design (ISD) and human performance technology (HPT) in the military. In the late 1990’s knowledge management was part of our solution suite at the Centre for Learning Technologies ( CLT via The Wayback Machine). I became a consumer and simultaneously a sharer of online knowledge.
