Building on Traditional Ways of Knowledge Sharing

Portals and KM

Here is where knowledge has been exchanged for some time and continues to be shared. The first example, in this case from another country in Europe, where I was involved a situation where we were tasked with creating a way for plumbers to share best practices on how to fix residential heating systems. While having morning coffee, they would share their best practices. I am sure there are many other traditional patterns of knowledge sharing in developing countries.

Yammer for internal knowledge sharing for health care and policy making

Joitske Hulsebosch

Yammer is booming, especially in the Nederland within Europe. I also meet many organizations where it is set up spontaneously by someone and then it remains a small group of employees who sign up , or people sign up, but very little sharing is going on. What is Yammer?

Shared Service, Outsourcing, Multi-sourcing, Re-insourcing. the great circle of life!

Governance in a Networked World

We had 'grown up' together at a large multinational where we transitioned from a local 'IS Shop' through to a corporate shared service, a corporate shared service servicing external accounts and finally sold/outsourced. Western Europe and Asia for example, have the opportunity to find the right balance without having to 'overshoot' by total outsourcing and then swinging back. I had dinner recently with a friend who had recently taken on the CIO role at a federal agency.

Why do a PhD by Publication?

Jenny Connected

That kind of PhD seems quite common in some countries in Europe and in Canada. Why do a PhD at all? I have considered this question many times since I completed my MA in 1997 when I was asked by the awarding University department to continue to do a PhD. I declined.

Wasting time at work, discussing the News, sharing communication on a birth, engagement, marriage, death?

Green Chameleon » A Brief History of Arrangement

Green Chameleon

Until the 1730s, at least in Europe, the practices of arrangement, classification, categorization, and taxonomy work, were all part of the same cluster of concepts. Born in the same year (1707), Linnaeus and Buffon occupied very different social stations, sat at opposite ends of Europe, and set out opposing positions on the ordering and arrangement of knowledge about species. They could be grouped according to the environments that they shared (eg air, land or water).

How do you engage and empower publics (groups of people) to act on communally shared issues? However, most of Europe is dealing with same issues. Every city in Europe has such a map of vacant plots.
