Sharing your knowledge: What’s in it for you?

Challenge to Learn

Knowledge Is in the Cards

Association eLearning

Can organisation-wide social networks capture tacit knowledge?

The eLearning Nomad

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.

ID Reflections

As I read the post on Resolvingthe Trust Paradox by John Hagel, I was reminded of two things—the talk on the power of vulnerability by Brene Brown and what Morten Hansen says about tacit knowledge sharing in hisbook Collaboration:How Leaders Avoid the Traps, Create Unity, and Reap Big Results. hadwritten about the latter in my post Molotovcocktail = Weak ties x complicated knowledge.

Organizational Knowledge Mastery?

Clark Quinn

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 ;). But I  must be missing something, because unless I’m mistaken, big data can’t give you the type of insights you  really need. Ok, I get it. And I’m all for this. How can such a process detect the disruptive influences?

Learning 3.0: How to uncover hidden knowledge in your organization

Docebo

Uncover hidden knowledge through conversion. The knowledge conversion process supports the need for organizations to focus on knowledge creation (when learning takes place), starting at the individual level where it’s first internalized and then shared with others. There are two things at play: socialization and tacit knowledge — or, knowledge that is personalized and that’s difficult to formalize and communicate but is deeply rooted within an individual. The challenge for organizations is converting that tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge.
