Luis Suarez

Yesterday evening, my time, I attended a rather interesting webcast with Sandy Carter , IBM’s Worldwide Sales Vice President, IBM Social Business, Collaboration, and Lotus Sales and Evangelism, along with Jeremiah Owyang , Industry Analyst at Altimeter Group , on the topic of Why Be Social?

Google Plus – One Social Networking Tool to Rule Them All

Luis Suarez

Like I have mentioned yesterday, it’s been a few days already since I jumped the shark and joined the bunch of early adopters who have been hammering down, and taking for a spin, the latest iteration of Google to get social with Google Plus , right after Google Wave and Google Buzz.

Simple standards facilitated with a light touch, enables knowledge workers to capture, interpret and share their knowledge. Personal knowledge management is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively.

Starting to work out loud

Harold Jarche

Most people are too busy managing in the industrial/information age workplace and have no slack to try to learn how work in the network age. I strongly suggest that the first step of starting to work out loud, as part of personal knowledge management, has to be as simple as possible.

PKM in 2013

“The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” Personal knowledge management (PKM) is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively.

Manual, not automatic, for sense-making

Harold Jarche

I started Friday’s Finds three years ago , in an attempt to make my finds on Twitter more explicit. I had been using Twitter actively for over a year at this time and realized that I was not making much sense of it.

Network Learning: Working Smarter

PKM: aggregate, filter, connect

Harold Jarche

Knowledge Squared equals Power Squared, says Craig Thomler : However the knowledge hoarding model begins to fail when it becomes cheap and easy to share and when the knowledge required to complete a task exceeds an individual’s capability to learn in the time available.

The title of the article / book chapter is “ The Humanity of the Web: Reflections of a Social Computing Evangelist ” and you would be able to find it as well over here. How hoarding and protecting your own knowledge would be very limited in the long run.

Sense-making with PKM

Harold Jarche

People learn socially. 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. Making Explicit: There are many ways of making knowledge explicit. Social. Twitter.

Active sense-making

Yesterday, during my presentation on personal knowledge management to IBM BlueIQ I was asked about the role of blogging in my own sense-making processes. This strikes me as the core of collaborative knowledge work.

Stealth mentoring

by pointing to things on Twitter or leaving bookmarks at a social bookmarking site), you can put together what’s interesting to them and what their resulting thoughts are, and start seeing the trajectory of their thinking and learning. One of the ways to accelerate your own growth, part of your personal knowledge management path, is to mentor folks who represent the type of thinking you believe is interesting and important. meta-learning social

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.

Creating your PKM processes

Harold Jarche

In Sense-making with PKM I described some personal knowledge management processes using various web tools. Personal knowledge management is one way of addressing the issue of TMI (too much information). Follow interesting people on Twitter. Use Social Bookmarks.

Social media workshops

Harold Jarche

Please pass this on to people in the area who might need an introduction to social media, without any hype or sales pitch. Workshop #1: Social media for training & education (9:00 AM to noon). Focus: understanding web social media and how they can be used for training, education and personal learning. Personal knowledge management – a sense-making process. Workshop #2 Social media for small business (1:30 PM to 4:30 PM).

Personal Information Management for Sense-making

Harold Jarche

Tweet George Siemens calls it information management (what I describe as PKM). I specifically use the term information instead of knowledge. We encounter a continual flow of information – most of it will never become “knowledge”.

Why the Government of Canada needs PKM

Harold Jarche

However, blogging is not enough because managing information overload is more a question of attitude than skills. Blogs, or their equivalent, are only one part of the knowledge management equation. I think that public servants really need PKM ( personal knowledge management ). Feed Readers & following on Twitter ). social bookmarks ). Blog posts & Twitter Posts ).

Knowledge sharing, one at a time

Harold Jarche

“Every amateur epistemologist knows that knowledge cannot be managed. Education has always assumed that knowledge can be transferred and that we can carefully control the process through education. That’s what personal knowledge management ( PKM ) is all about.

Social tools for networks

Harold Jarche

Effective knowledge sharing is what many organizations do not do well, or as Lew Platt past-CEO of Hewlett-Packard said, “if only HP knew what HP knows, we would be three times more productive&#. That’s the key benefit of personal knowledge management, in my opinion. If each person can better manage knowledge creation and capture, then it becomes easier to share it. I also make available information and perhaps knowledge that is useful to others.

Learning to work smarter

Harold Jarche

In my view, smart working is the outcome of designing and putting in place systems, working environments and governance principles that are known to be associated with effective business performance, including workforce autonomy and self-determination, and which seek to maximise opportunities to use and develop people’s knowledge, skills. We have over-managed information because it’s easy and we’re still enamoured with information technology.

PKM in 2010

Harold Jarche

Personal Knowledge Management. Knowledge = the capacity for effective action (know how). Management = how to get things done. Knowledge. Sources of Info & Knowledge. Informal, social learning is the primary way that knowledge is created in the workplace.

Develop Work Skills

Tony Karrer

Stuart Henshall had asked on Twitter about ideas for posts. 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.? As he suggests I must be as I did get this post off Twitter and visited his blog.

Last Year's eLearn Magazine Predictions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Sure, many of these efforts are naïve and overly-simplistic, but these people are smart, fast learners, so their lack of knowledge and understanding of education doesn't last long. Not only that, but they are hiring teachers and educators for their staff, management, and advisory boards.
