Work Live Integration – 23 and 1/2 Hours


Instead, a long while ago I have made the transition into what some people have been calling work life integration, where one of key words / concepts that has started making the rounds in the last few years, that is, flexibility, is gaining more and more importance and relevance as we move forward.

It’s All About Work Life Integration; It’s All About You!


Because, in my own experience, it’s not about striking a good work life balance, but eventually it’s all about Work Life Integration. After all, we are all smart and very productive knowledge workers, aren’t we not? That’s where work life integration kicks in!

Integrating Transactions and Interactions: A Fable

Portals and KM

In the last two days, I wrote about: Integrating the Interactions with the Transactions, and Maybe Enterprise 2.0 I this post I want to share an example of an early success with this type of integration using old school tools.   We did this before the term knowledge management was pervasive. This approach was new, as the people had never been asked this question. This practice, aka knowledge management, has met with varying degrees of success in other firms.

Blog>> Trends in Knowledge Management

Green Chameleon

Traditionally, KM was more often than not a top-down driven approach. For example, document taxonomies and knowledge sharing procedures were defined; identified experts shared their knowledge in defined communities. Today, we can identify six strong trends that lead into new concepts of knowledge sharing and collaboration: Exploring. builds on management to pass some control on to the network; they empower the knowledge workers to work and act autonomous.

Blog>> Knowledge Management in Intranets

Green Chameleon

Knowledge sharing happens partially with technology, and also successfully without software. In my experience, these knowledge sharing tools are often add-ons to the classic intranet platform. Recently, many people argue (see also New Edge in Knowledge , chapter 1 ‘Primary Directives’) that knowledge sharing activities should happen in our daily work, in order to overcome usage barriers. Then, knowledge sharing tools that are an add-on might not be the right approach.

Appreciative Inquiry and Knowledge Management? No problem.

Chris Collison

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) pre-dates Knowledge Management. Having facilitated a number of KM-related workshops using an AI, I can vouch for the positive engagement power of the approach. It’s only in the last few years that I’ve come to appreciate(!)

My KM World Notes: Evolve From a Tactical E-Discovery Approach to Search and E-Discovery

Portals and KM

    It is titled:  Evolve From a Tactical E-Discovery Approach to Search and E-Discovery   by  Brian W. Lacking an end-to-end approach to gather and filter information, few enterprises report having a holistic approach to e-discovery. One search approach is key words but you only find what you are looking for. There are a number of shortcomings with this approach.

As the Knowledge Hub faces closure, might a creative Twitter mob help with re-invention?

Social Reporter

Or it may be that the Knowledge Hub may survive but without much staffing to facilitate conversations. What’s certain is that there is no structured consultation with the 150,000 or so people registered in the Knowledge Hub system, which seems rather strange when the practice of “consulting the residents” is fairly well established in local councils if big changes are in prospect. If Knowledge Hub doesn’t close this time, it may well do so in future.
