And last week I attended KMAP 2006 in Hong Kong, organised by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (disclosure: I teach for them) the City University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Knowledge Management Society. Some of this diversity is what you’d expect from an academic conference, it’s what universities can contribute to the conference scene.

It must support not just a diversity of tasks, but a diversity of interests and knowledge domain specialisations, not to mention the ability to reconstruct historical events, generate new applications and innovations, and reflect and support work types that change at different velocities. It will be more on the side of diverse knowledge organization mechanisms when it is trying to break down groupthink and create greater innovation capabilities.

Communities of practice: the ape in the corner office

Joitske Hulsebosch

I have read a book by Richard Conniff, The ape in the corner office ; I actually read the Dutch translation which is 'Gorilla's in krijtstreep'. On the website there is a quiz , music, postcards, you name it, and it's there! Couldn't resist the quiz ofcourse and this is my result: The Ape in the corner office says: Well, now! (5 5 of 7) You clearly know how to read your environment and use it to stay alive.

Practical examples: community of ICT4D trainers

Joitske Hulsebosch

The timeframe which must be kept in mind is quite long, bearing in mind the diversity of trainers’ practices involved. I'm happy that I can finally link to a four-page summary of the community readiness assessment we did last year, titled Train the trainers or let the trainers train themselves , a collaboration between IICD , Learning Alliances , and an intern from new media and digital culture. The full report of the internship is available at the IICD website.

Practical example: Experiences with communities of practice in India

Joitske Hulsebosch

The paper ends with some lessons learned, comparing CoPs to 'Learning alliances' where a CoP would regroup peers and a learning alliances a wider diversity of people. I think this is semantics, and you'd have to find the right balance in drawing in a sufficiently wide diversity of people also within a CoP, so that you have sufficient innovation going on.

Culture: inburgeringstest

Joitske Hulsebosch

The inburgeringstest clearly doesn't do justice to the diversity within the country (otherwise I would have passed :)). Ousseini Zongo sent me the link to the nationale inburgeringstest : In de test komen vragen aan de orde die te maken hebben met kennis van Nederland: de Nederlandse samenleving, geschiedenis, gewoonten, normen en waarden. De vragen zijn opgesteld door dezelfde deskundigen die de echte inburgeringexamens samenstellen.

How big, how diverse do we want to become. Diversity in the group is already high, different levels of comfortability with e-tools, different expectations of the group. Use the diversity of the group as an opportunity for contribution. Based on the input of John Smith , learning facilitator Don't plan ahead too far, outline a few steps, practice a lot. These wise words summarize quite well the advices given to our e-collaboration by the learning facilitator John Smith.
