Axonify Solves the Employee Knowledge Problem
NOVEMBER 20, 2015
If you think hard, the common denominator for each of these challenges is knowledge. When employees don’t have the right knowledge, expecting them to be top performers (or even average performers) just isn’t realistic. Learning is only the first step in the knowledge equation. How do we move past this conversation and finally address the true knowledge problem?

Organizational Knowledge Mastery?
FEBRUARY 2, 2016
If we adapt Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Mastery (or PKM ), which is about Seek-Sense-Share as a mechanism to grow our own abilities, to organizations, we can see a different model. Here’s organizations seek knowledge sources, sense via experiments and reflection, and share internally (and externally, as appropriate ;).

How can such a process detect the disruptive influences?

Can organisation-wide social networks capture tacit knowledge?
The eLearning Nomad
MARCH 8, 2016
Most of what we do at work requires knowledge that can’t be captured into a 10 bullet checklist with clear do’s and don’ts. More than ever before, the success of our organisations is based on tacit knowledge (that part of knowledge that is widely embodied in individuals but not able to be readily expressed). The big challenge in any modern learning organisation is the sharing of this tacit knowledge. Tacit knowledge is not something that can be ‘captured’ and re-distributed. Sharing of tacit knowledge is done through solving problems together.
