Reflections from 2011 – A World Without Email – The Documentary

Luis Suarez

Like I have been saying in a good number of occasions, there are a couple of incredibly good use cases for corporate email to still survive nice and dandy: 1) Managing Calendaring & Scheduling events and 2) Hosting 1:1 confidential, or rather sensitive, conversations in a private manner.

Don’t Underestimate the Power of (Social) Collaboration. It Is Not a Given

Luis Suarez

Indeed, I am referring to good old Knowledge Management and Collaboration, once again, just to detail a bit more the parallel roads both fields have been running all along. And it’s interesting to notice how when I used to work within the European Knowledge Management deployment team inside IBM, about 11 years ago, we faced the very same upsetting reality: KM (And Collaboration, for that matter), wasn’t the business top priority at the time.

Inspiration for Working Out Loud

Harold Jarche

” Initial inspiration for PKM came from Lilia Efimova , whose blog was a view on her doctoral research into knowledge-sharing. In fact, I’d go further: blogging has become my notebook and general repository of digital bits and bobs.

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).

Defining KM

Dave Snowden

Davenport and Prusak define knowledge as “ a fluid mix of framed experience, values, contextual information, and expert insight that provides a framework for evaluating and incorporating new experiences and information. In organizations, it often becomes embedded not only in documents or repositories but also in organizational routines, process, practices, and norms. ”. Management of the KM function will be based on a small centralized core, with a wider distributed network.

Clark Quinn

Learnscape architects have implemented miniature versions of the internet behind corporate firewalls that provide all of these things, from peer-rated FAQs to wizards, on-line help desks, and best practices repositories.
