Building on Traditional Ways of Knowledge Sharing

Portals and KM

Here is where knowledge has been exchanged for some time and continues to be shared. When we create social business applications I think it is best to build on existing patterns of knowledge exchange and then simply adding an electronic facilitation can be one way to address these cultural challenges. The traditional, and non-electronic, means to exchange best practices was eliminated in a cost cutting move.

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

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.
