For example, document taxonomies and knowledge sharing procedures were defined; identified experts shared their knowledge in defined communities. Today, we can identify six strong trends that lead into new concepts of knowledge sharing and collaboration: Exploring. builds on management to pass some control on to the network; they empower the knowledge workers to work and act autonomous.

Blog>> Knowledge Management in Intranets

Green Chameleon

Knowledge sharing happens partially with technology, and also successfully without software. In my experience, these knowledge sharing tools are often add-ons to the classic intranet platform.

Then, knowledge sharing tools that are an add-on might not be the right approach.

Impact assessment of knowledge management interventions

Joitske Hulsebosch

We (team of 3) are doing a study about Monitoring and Evaluation of Knowledge Management Interventions. After all, the aim is not to have a community of practice, but to have a functional community of practice and which functional I mean stewarding knowledge and innovating practices. One remarkable thing is the concept of Knowledge Management itself. Continuous conversations between the knowledge actors and the sponsors may be more useful in that case.

My Favorite Knowledge Management Story and its Lessons Learned for Today

Portals and KM

Knowledge management has been around for over twenty years now. This is also one of the clearest cases I have seen of an organization moving to a knowledge-based business model and then aligning its knowledge management system to directly support this new model. In the 1990s, Ryder’s management began to notice important changes in the company’s markets. A key part of this strategy would be to move to a more knowledge-based business model.
