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.

Relationships and Identity: Two Sides of the Social Networking Coin

Collaborative Thinking

This outline forms the baseline of a discussion Alice Wang (Director, Burton Group) and I will lead at a workshop next Monday sponsored by Project Concordia. When we think of relationships, and study it from a social perspective, we look at: how people construct facets of their identity based on social structures in a particular context and activity. how “need to know” access and permission controls enable effective information sharing and collaboration between co-workers.

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.

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. Without a doubt, those are more valuable knowledge classes than documents, as they are alive and take time to build.

Blog>> Knowledge Management in Intranets

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. project reports) and by all in the intranet (e.g.

Why BIG’s #ageingbetter programme needs added digital innovation

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.

Since 1999, my work has been related to Knowledge Management (KM).

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. “Knowledge Management&# seems to be fuzzy and not specific enough; it does not refer to daily (work) life topics.
