I thought I’d share a few of them on this blog. However, when they become connected, local actions can emerge as a powerful system with influence at a more global or comprehensive level. As you know, communications is as much a qualitative thing as a quantitative thing.

Want to Know What Community Members (a.k.a. Customers) Need? Just Ask.

Online Community Strategy

In many cases there seems to be a real fear (or at least discomfort) in connecting 1 to 1 with customers. Answers could range from knowledge sharing, to providing mentoring, to ongoing professional or personal support. Are you “Member Shy”?

Target Practice

Chris Collison

All of this got me thinking about how on-target we are in the way we exchange knowledge, good practices, worst practices and stories. Despite our best efforts, do people sometimes miss the mark when it comes to knowledge exchange? . Urinals. Do you spend much time looking at them?

Both helped me clarify for myself the characteristics and dangers of “magical thinking&# in knowledge management, which I’ve blogged and spoken about before The Beyerstein article in particular caught my attention for the clarity it brings to the conduct of a rational pursuit.

Collaborative Thinking: Why Is Social Software So Important?

Collaborative Thinking

In many ways, business strategists are entering an age of Copernican enlightenment regarding the need to transform industrial-age management practices and the manner in which the organization communicates, shares information and collaborate; both internally and externally.

Breaking down silos, what does that mean? | @Greg2dot0's Blog

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

I shared what “improving collaboration” probably means to most people in the context of making business better. By building groups where you share a shared set of goals, you effectively have an area of focus with a group of people interested in the same area and/or outcome.

Collaboration vs sharing

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Engineers without Fears Sunday, October 14, 2007 Collaboration vs sharing James Robertson talks about collaboration tools as anti-knowledge sharing. A big part of the role of KM (or whatever you want to call it) is the development of shared contexts between groups within an organisation because without that shared context you cant transfer anything. Predicting what does need to shared (tricky).

We documented Bobs story in Virtual Teams --and, perhaps more importantly, he documented it himself in Building the Knowledge-Driven Organization. Not long after people in the collaboration community (which will have to be a subject of another post someday) started to use the term "communities of practice" came its partner-in-crime, knowledge management , whose history Karl-Erik Sveiby , the Swedish writer and consultant, has been tracking for years.
