Coining the right term

Joitske Hulsebosch

Share your learning curve is a brilliant term for this. The Tedtalk supported what we had already discussed, and gave the blog a clear focus by coining the term 'share your learning curve'. I think a good term can help clients in an advisory trajectory to see something very clearly.

Information Overload Can be a Misleading Term

Portals and KM

It have been a while since I wrote about the Darwin Awareness Engine™ but it is alive and doing well gaining new customers. Nicholas Herold makes a nice point in the post, Information Overload?

Instead it organizes information into patterns that help the knowledgeable person make sense of what is happening in their area of interest.

One Account of the Birth of the Term Knowledge Management

Portals and KM

The term knowledge management has been around for much longer. There are various tales on how the term got started. Tom Davenport and Larry Prusak, provide an interesting story about the birth of the term “knowledge management” in their new book, What’s the Big Idea ? Not happy with the term “information,” they discussed the issue over tea. This year will be the 16 th annual KM World in Washington DC, on October 17-19. I plan to be there.

An Ant’s Eye Point-of-View: Does Terms of Use Affect Your Social Strategy?

If your company has started using the hot new network Pinterest , it’s worth considering how their Terms of Service might affect your strategy. Controversy surfaced in the last month or so about what the site discloses and how their Terms of Service are written. This example, along with a handful of others, show that before participating in the next hot social network you must consider how their Terms affect your use of the platform.

So what is design thinking? Well, according to Roger Martin, it's abduction - which is all very clever but not especially helpful.

Already then, KM was a term that was not well recognised; at the time, we did not label our KM-related consulting services with Knowledge Management.

Here I use the term Enterprise DNA which is consist of two compulsory structures.

Green Chameleon » “I Speak-a No KM”

One of the things Jerry said that struck me was his discomfort with terms like “knowledge capture”. While we know that a person’s knowledge is not removed, whether captured or transferred, these terms still require that accompanying explanation when we use them. It got me thinking about other terms in KM that we have loosely coined that may seem harmless when used in context but could be threatening and counter-productive especially when used on the KM uninitiated.
