Organizational Knowledge Mastery?
FEBRUARY 2, 2016
By the ‘test and learn’ process of doing experiments and reading reactions, you can gather data quickly. 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.
