10 characteristics of a great KM Sponsor

Chris Collison

I’ve been thinking recently about the role of sponsorship in enabling knowledge management, and it took me back to some Change Management principles which I learned from ChangeFirst , when I was responsible for Change Management as well as Knowledge Management at Centrica. Think about the leaders who sponsors your KM activities as you read then through – or use it as a checklist to help you select the ideal candidate, if you’re still looking… 1.

The KM and Social Computing Culture Changes


I know that for a good number of years Social Computing and Knowledge Management have been walking different paths. They are both trying to help improve the overall productivity of knowledge workers. The good old KM pyramid graphic of tools, processes and people?

One of the Forum’s members (who’s now left in high dudgeon) was testifying to the utility of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) in KM, which met with a notable lack of sympathy and a reading list from Dave Snowden on why NLP is a pseudoscience. Management theory in general and KM theory in particular sometimes seems to forget that. PL] This is real KM.

Sometimes we know who exactly the next team (or teams) will be, and we can set up relationships, staff transfers, conversations, forums to ask questions, site visits, peer assists, peer reviews. We have to think equally as hard about how they would like to receive this knowledge.

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. 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. Let’s take a walk through an organizational learning cycle and see where some of the “chokes” in our knowledge management processes might be.
