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.

Why BIG’s #ageingbetter programme needs added digital innovation

A recent study prompted the headline that loneliness is causing as many deaths among the elderly as cancer , and another that loneliness is more deadly than obesity – so it is clearly important to explore and share ways to tackle the issue as rapidly as possible.

Along with all the great knowledge-sharing and network-building that typically happens, an Unconference can be one of the key catalysts for the culture change needed to evolve to a more social business : a day of suspended organizational hierarchy, authentic communication (no PPTs), collaboration, learning and relationship development. Unconferences tend to be very effective when there is a large group of knowledgeable people struggling with a complex problem set.
