One of the Forum’s members (who’s now left in high dudgeon) was testifying to the utility of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) in KM, which met with a notable lack of sympathy and a reading list from Dave Snowden on why NLP is a pseudoscience. Management theory in general and KM theory in particular sometimes seems to forget that. PL] This is real KM.

Circling Around To KM

Collaborative Thinking

Because there's no mention of blogs, wikis, social networks, Enterprise 2.0 or the dreaded "KM Architecture" (there might be one or more - but it is not an IT architecture in the traditional sense - I would consider a patterns-based argument for KM though). Technology is the tail wagging the dog when it comes to knowledge management - it always has been. Technology helps people discover, filter, aggregate, connect and so on. Excellent (the post below).
