Creating Global Knowledge Sharing Networks at ConocoPhillips

Portals and KM

On Friday I attended Driving Business Excellence With Formal, Global Networks led by Dan Ranta , Director of Knowledge Sharing, ConocoPhillips. Here is the session description: “In 2004, ConocoPhillips launched a large initiative to create internal communities of practice that would enhance knowledge sharing within the firm. Moreover, they recognized that each had to be focused on solving difficult business challenges. They grew by sharing success stories.

Building a knowledge sharing network about Ageing Better from the ground up

Social Reporter

In my last few posts I’ve promoted the idea of more digital innovation in the Big Lottery Fund’s £82 million Ageing Better programme, and ways to share knowledge and experience both among the 15 local partners and more widely. It is, of course, very welcome that Big Lottery Fund, consultants and others tweet from events … but it isn’t a substitute for well-curated resources and more organised ways to share knowledge.

Re-visiting the challenge of networking civil society as Khub closes

Social Reporter

News that the Local Government Association is closing its Knowledge Hub as part of a £2 million savings plan provides a reminder of how difficult it is to maintain big one-stop-shop knowledge-sharing systems. It may be the Knowledge Hub , with 18,500 users, could have continued if LGA hadn’t faced a big cut in support from Government, but I suspect there is more to it than that. Help me save the Knowledge Hub (in some form).

How I use social media

This afternoon I’m spending a half hour on a Skype video conversation to share a bit of how I use social media. I remember Ran Avrahami, a professor in Israel, and how he jumped into the conversations and reached out and connected with us. Finding and connecting with people.

Green Chameleon » AWARE of Poor KM

Green Chameleon

A 25-year-old NGO, the Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), was recently taken over by a group of people with connections to a christian fundamentalist church. Put all these issues aside, if we look at this episode purely from a knowledge management perspective we get a classic case of exactly what not to do when a new team takes over. Without a doubt, those are more valuable knowledge classes than documents, as they are alive and take time to build.

Social Reporter

There’s a lot of links to earlier posts on this site about knowledge sharing and the Social App Store idea. Earlier today I went to an excellent seminar on the Business of Collaboration , about online systems and support for knowledge sharing and collaboration.

Modelling, not shaping

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Tweet In social networks we can learn from each other; modelling behaviours, telling stories, and sharing what we know. There is strong evidence that we need to integrate learning into our work in order to deal with the increasing complexity of knowledge work.

Happiness at Work Starts with #NoeMail

Elsua

Why is it so difficult then to challenge the status quo of corporate email and somehow accept its extended (ab)use as a necessary evil ? Just like that, all along, it’s been our choice to do something about it, and yet, are we up for the challenge? How could we get connected?
