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. When we study relationships from a purely identity management focus, we look at the people, process, and technology arenas such as: how the organization ensures that authenticated and authorized employees are securely accessing information and applications.

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. Now when you focus it like that, it’s one big financial prize to get after. 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. And of course, just because it’s stored, it doesn’t mean it’s shared!

Knowledge sharing happens partially with technology, and also successfully without software. For this post, let’s focus on the first: technology. 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.
