Portals and KM

This will change everything in workplace IT support from designing workplace information strategies for collaboration, to delivering content experiences to people across channels, to engaging the next-generation workforce to serve customers better. On Friday I attended Driving Business Excellence With Formal, Global Networks led by Dan Ranta , Director of Knowledge Sharing, ConocoPhillips. This activity has triggered a big need for knowledge sharing.

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

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.

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.

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. BIG is supporting 15 partnerships over five years in its Fulfilling Lives: Ageing Better programme, and as I wrote the other day I think there’s a lot of scope to extend the impact.

Using Unconference in the Enterprise – Manifesting Social Business

Along with all the great knowledge-sharing and network-building that typically happens, an Unconference can be one of the key catalysts for the culture change needed to evolve to a more social business : a day of suspended organizational hierarchy, authentic communication (no PPTs), collaboration, learning and relationship development. Unconferences tend to be very effective when there is a large group of knowledgeable people struggling with a complex problem set.

Blog>> Knowledge Management Explained in Five Disciplines

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