One of the key enablers in organisation-wide KM implementations is having your policies relating to information management, records management, IT security, privacy, knowledge sharing, etc, all integrated and aligned with each other.

Some of these clients have had experience in doing small scale experimental KM through a variety of projects and initiatives, and now they want to broaden and integrate their efforts – this often comes from the need to start reaping larger scale value from previous knowledge management efforts. At the same time, this organisation’s environment is demanding more integrated, larger-scale, coordinated, and faster responses.

Green Chameleon » Two Pillars of Implementing KM Initiatives

User Benefit Users regard a tool as useful, if it is simple and does not require additional work; ideally, the tool should be integrated in their daily job. In order to engage these stakeholders for your KM solution, I suggest three approaches. Third, integrate KM-related KPIs into the appraisal targets ; do this for all employees but especially for the middle management.

Integrate with E-Mail In an ideal world, we would be much less dependent on e-mail; we should use mash-up pages and use our applications directly; no need for e-mail notifications. Nice examples for this are Highrise and Basecamp by 37signals; these tool provide a very neat integration and allow users to respond to forum questions and send client e-mails to the system.

What doesn’t work is a superficial sheep dip approach where a guru is just used to draw crowds, and zips in and out without interacting, and delivers dumbed down content that’s more sex appeal than substance. I tried to take the consulting approach in data collection but I have very little capacity to do it myself. I see the consulting firms as the vehicle that carries various research outputs, mix them, and integrate them into customized solutions to various clients.

Green Chameleon » How to be a KM Guru #1

Green Chameleon

I guess we shouldn’t expect perfection, as this will only cause us grief, but we can aim to do things with integrity, and if that means remaining anonymous - then so be it, even if that means we won’t be inheriting the earth - its the sacrifice we agree to in taking on this job. I was not suggesting that gurus represent KM at large - I do think they play an important role in validating and integrating KM knowledge and practice.

Green Chameleon » Creativity, Courage, Charisma - What Has It To Do With Management Buy-In?

Green Chameleon

Some project managers have sadly become less imaginative and creative as a result, preferring to stick to safe, tried and tested approaches to implementing their projects. I have recently published a blog about “KM by stealth&# and, similarly, I think that indirected approach is effective to make quick wins and inroads in a bottom-up approach, although I feel it is not enough in order to ensure the successful implementation of a KM programme.

Is SharePoint "Worth It" as a Collaboration Tool? - Joe Shepley

Joe's two earlier columns - SharePoint Collaboration: If You Build It, Will They Come and SharePoint Collaboration: Build So They Will Come - advocate similar practices and approaches to what I wrote in my two books, SharePoint Roadmap for Collaboration and User Adoption Strategies. In such a case, "integration" with existing email and IM platforms would be far more critical.

Education Technology Action Group consultation

The common theme here is that at the level of policy relating to schools, the use of technology for education is being perceived as a separate, specialist area, rather than an effective and integral range of approaches and tools to support learners and learning communities. This isn’t, of course, to say that there is any shortage of schools and school staff making effective and creative use of innovative approaches that are supported, or made possible, by the use of technologies.
