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.

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. But it is a skilled business, and it costs.
