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.

Already then, KM was a term that was not well recognised; at the time, we did not label our KM-related consulting services with Knowledge Management.

Bring Back the Corporate Knowledge Managers - as Collaboration Connectors

Michael Sampson - Currents

The "hub" is a person who curates what's going on and both shares it more widely in the organization and also suggests connections for people who are seeking collaborative help: " The very premise behind extended collaboration is that sharing information broadly will have benefits. Think of the challenge of connection productivity as one of tipping the scales at the individual level. On the other side is the payoff to the individual — new ideas gained, shortcuts learned.

My Favorite Knowledge Management Story and its Lessons Learned for Today

Portals and KM

Knowledge management has been around for over twenty years now. This is also one of the clearest cases I have seen of an organization moving to a knowledge-based business model and then aligning its knowledge management system to directly support this new model. In the 1990s, Ryder’s management began to notice important changes in the company’s markets. A key part of this strategy would be to move to a more knowledge-based business model.

Knowledge Management and the Divided Brain

Chris Collison

It got me thinking again about parallels between how the brain manages knowledge and how organisations manage knowledge. I think a holistic approach to knowledge management which mirrors the brain will pay attention to breadth, depth, living connections and reflection. I believe that an effective knowledge management strategy will creatively combine each of these components in a way which is balanced to the current and future needs of the business.
