Green Chameleon » Justification by Faith or Works?

Green Chameleon

Matt Moore has published a very nice, pragmatic white paper based on his actKM conference session, giving guidance on how to justify your KM efforts to your various stakeholders. It forms a very nice procedural companion to the white paper I wrote some time back on “ How to use KPIs in Knowledge Management &#. The assumption in Matt’s white paper is that you’ve been doing KM for some time and have some activity and output measures to show.

Technology's Contribution to Success: 20%

Michael Sampson - Currents

In a white paper from 2008, Oracle pins the contribution of technology to success at a maximum of 20%. Very cool to see a major vendor say this in its materials. Nearly 80 percent of the issues that can affect your deployment and overall solution adoption involve factors that are unrelated to software products. To achieve your highest potential, it’s important to consider the effect that governance, strategy, people, process, and technology will have on your implementation. ".

Watch this space as we will be releasing a white paper on this topic in the next week I got this quote from a recent Deloitte publication on Social Software for Business Performance.

The “Other” Consideration of Collaboration Tools; Welcome to the New World of GDPR

Given its wide scope, as the white paper below points out, it would be better to refer to it as the “Global” Data Protection Regulation. Collaboration tools provide amazing capabilities for helping people work together across time and space, and selecting the right tools for your organisation is important. However, there’s another side to the whole area that I haven’t often written about on this site: compliance.
