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.

Is this Knowledge Management’s most effective tool?

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.

Defining Knowledge Management and Enterprise 2.0 – Sharing Your Story

Elsua

Can Twitter Serve as a Personal Knowledge Management Tool?

I have been using Twitter now for over two and a half years and, all along, if you have been following some of my recent twitterings , you would know how I seem to keep having a love / hate relationship with it. And I think I have finally managed to make it work.

Blog>> Knowledge Management Explained in Five Disciplines

Green Chameleon

Since 1999, my work has been related to Knowledge Management (KM). 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. Today I am holding an official position in Knowledge Management, still many people do not grasp the term and have a clear understanding of it. In my comprehension, the field of Knowledge Management has a few clearly distinguished topics.

Help! What’s the Next Big Thing in Knowledge Management?

Social Reporter

What’s the next big thing in local government knowledge management? The invite to contribute came in months back - courtesy I believe of a recommendation from my friend Steve Dale , who really is an expert in KM, and developing the Knowledge Hub for local authorities that I’ve written about here.

What's Next After Knowledge Management? A Scenario

How to Save the World

BLOG What's Next After Knowledge Management? O ne of the most important things I've learned in the last few years is that, except for senior management, no one in most organizations really understands what the business of the organizations is all about -- how decisions are made, what information is used and how, etc. Senior managers are insulated from the front lines and customers. The tragedy is that often neither they nor their senior managers think they need.

Launch Day of Communities and Networks Connection

Elsua

For a good number of years, almost from the very beginning since I have gotten involved rather heavily with social software in my role both as a Knowledge Manager and Community Builder, I have been saying that the major drivers of social software adoption within the enterprise are communities, whichever flavour you would want to consider (of Practice, of Interest, of Purpose, etc. Thus as you can see a tremendous potential for Communities and Networks Connection.

Lessons Lost

Chris Collison

Following on from my last post comparing operational effectiveness with knowledge effectiveness, I’m reminded of the “Choke Model” from my BP days. I think there’s a similar perspective that we could take looking at the way in which knowledge is lost during our efforts to “refine it” and transfer it to customers. Let’s take a walk through an organizational learning cycle and see where some of the “chokes” in our knowledge management processes might be.
