I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

What we need is to exercise personal knowledge management, or PKM. PKM is distinct from organizational knowledge management, which is widely used today. Only PKM can meet my needs, which only I know at any given time. Three Key Components of PKM. Sharing knowledge, using any number of media that fit our personal needs, work styles, and professional social networks.

Here's how I'm approaching Personal Knowledge Management

I was interested in how I could share my links and when I was a manager of 12 trainers/instructional designers, the benefits of a pooled set of favourites/bookmarks, tagged and annotated made me salivate.  I realize now that this is really level one use, a group uploading their faves to the same place, mainly an efficiency savings and an access winner. . I’m no longer a manager with employees, I’m an independent.  Do I connect it to twitter?
