Seven years later, the ConocoPhillips' knowledge-sharing program is ranked as best-in-class across industries.”.

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

Social Reporter

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. It is, of course, very welcome that Big Lottery Fund, consultants and others tweet from events … but it isn’t a substitute for well-curated resources and more organised ways to share knowledge.

Chris Collison

This pattern has three phases: support and personal validation, connection to a community and/or network for practice and learning and finally, external validation. She feels her idea will accellerate knowledge sharing, increase learning and reduce duplication.

Lotus 203

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. The choke model was a way of modelling production losses at every stage in the process, for example during the refining of crude oil to produce the raw materials and refined products which customers want to buy. Good – but not a “watertight” process for learning everything that might be needed.

Why BIG’s #ageingbetter programme needs added digital innovation

Social Reporter

A recent study prompted the headline that loneliness is causing as many deaths among the elderly as cancer , and another that loneliness is more deadly than obesity – so it is clearly important to explore and share ways to tackle the issue as rapidly as possible. First in developing innovative approaches to services, and the ways people can use technology themselves to develop relationships. Which brings me to sharing experience.

One of the most amazing parts of the day is the topic selection process.
