Blog>> Re-inventing KM

Green Chameleon

KM per se is not a sexy term - when speaking to others, particularly those I’m keen on building relationships with, flaunting ‘KM’ does not often jump-start inspiring and enthralling conversations. What I believe is by repositioning what KM can bring to an organisation under a new mantra can kick-start much more exciting and relevant conversations. My name for KM concepts?

I have always been very cautious about KM Maturity Assessments. They carry a lot of assumptions about how KM should be implemented, that may not always be true for everybody.

KM Principles

Collaborative Thinking

A concise and very effective set of guidelines from David Snowden : Knowledge can only be volunteered it cannot be conscripted. You can’t make someone share their knowledge, because you can never measure if they have. You can measure information transfer or process compliance, but you can’t determine if a senior partner has truly passed on all their experience or knowledge of a case. We only know what we know when we need to know it.

Green Chameleon

Every now and then we are asked by clients or potential clients whether we can help them conduct a KM Maturity Assessment. We have used KM maturity models in the past, but I (along with others) am quite sceptical about their utility as KM assessment and planning tools at the start of a KM journey. b) The KM maturity landscape in large organisations tends to be uneven, with peaks and troughs – some parts are more mature than others.

I like the structure of this award, it is impact and not checklist based similar to the actKM Awards and the iKMS KM Excellence Awards. But does it make sense to treat KM as a distinct category from policy participation, service delivery and accountability? Surely that’s what KM should deliver, if it’s not to be an end in itself? The UN has a Public Service Award with knowledge management (you have three more days to submit a nomination!),
