Take a Day Per Month to Think Long Term

Michael Sampson - Currents

Roman Stanek, CEO of GoodData, recommends that CEOs should take one day a month to think about the long term : ‘I believe (and I don’t do enough of it) that a CEO should spend at least a day, if not two days, a month outside of the office on a bike or something,’ Stanek, who is also the founder of the data analytics company, told Business Insider.

Teams, communities and networks in terms of communication forms


There is not much in terms of shared goals and recurrent conversations, the ties are weak or latent. While I came with the communication egg model to talk about things missing in distributed teams I feel that it could be useful in more contexts.

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.

Using ’social navigation’ and ‘participatory surveillance’ terms for co-creation and joint action

Taming the spaces

I started to wonder about the terminology, it seems some of these terms have an overlap and we need to think which is the right concept we are talking about. Participatory surveillance term is explained by Albrechtslund (2008) in Online social Networking as a participatory surveillance. Albrechtslund refers that the term originates from Mark Poster and T.L. I believe that dynamic ontospace term can be used for the representation of our actions and meanings in social web.

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.
