My Favorite Knowledge Management Story and its Lessons Learned for Today

Portals and KM

In fact, Ryder had to issue a disclaimer when one of the yellow Ryder trucks was on newspaper covers across the US hauling votes up to the Florida capital to be recounted in the last Presidential election. Knowledge management has been around for over twenty years now. I still feel it was the precursor to enterprise 2.0 and social business. It had its own precursors like performance support. Here is a story of its midpoint. It was my favorite project because of the people we worked with.

We were driving from New Orleans to Florida for a summer vacation to escape the heat. The music penetrated my daydreaming and it directed my thoughts to some of the run down hotels we saw on the road to Florida. I was thinking about Elvis the other day as I listened again to some of his early songs. He recorded his first song “That’s All Right” on July 5, 1954. The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock and Roll credits him as the first rock and roll star, which is a fair statement.
