Idea from Will Richardson: what do you do when you read a blog post and come across an interesting few sentences? What do you do with that system?

Consultation/Training Needs Analysis checklist

ID Reflections

The Pre-Training/Consultation/Training Needs Analysis checklist could be something like this: 1. Is there a stated training need, i.e., has clear areas of performance gaps been identified by the LoB manager/training department? Does the top management believe in or is willing to open up to the e-learning approach? If there are no defined training needs but a general feeling from the top management that some improvements are required, the situation becomes tougher.

KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT IS A SIMPLE PROCESS ONCE THE RHETORIC IS REMOVED

Wonderful Brain

The benefits of knowledge management (KM) are a monster value-add to any organization. A Flash History of Knowledge Management. Then each would become a teacher and spread knowledge throughout the empire. If knowledge transfer has grown into a complex system, it’s only because the nature of organizations to pile on layers of management seeking justify the effort and deflect external examination has become endemic. What is Knowledge Management.

How To Build A Successful Consulting Business? Here’s One Small Contribution We Can Make

SmartUp

“For a fee, an expert will provide professional feedback about how your business can be more successful and give you a recipe about what you should do” Although this is a very loose definition of what a consultant or a consultancy does for their clients, it touches on why businesses hire consultants: insights, advice, knowledge, and action. Arthur Dehon Little founded what was widely believed to be the first management consulting firm in 1886.

Blogs as knowledge management

The Learning Circuits

Blogs are knowledge objects that can make bottom-up (i.e. useful) knowledge management a reality. In his Journal of the Hyperlinked Organization ( JOHO }, David Weinberger describes the role of blogs inside corporations : I continue to believe that for many companies the best path to blogging is by using them internally as a knowledge management tool. Doesn't this make more sense than paying consultants to install some humongous KM system that nobody uses?

WITH REGARDS TO mLEARNING: A CASE IN POINT OR UP IN THE AIR

Wonderful Brain

A few years back as a VP for a large computer solutions company in New York, one of our account executives specializing in elearning opportunities had managed to seduce a notoriously reticent airline into considering change from their mostly instructor led training to online education.

The emergent nature of MOOCs can have interesting outcomes: They can enable the formation of Communities of Interests (CoIs), which can evolve into Communities of Practices (CoPs) if participants are keen on building the domain knowledge and practices.

EMERGENT WORKPLACES: LEARNING IN THE NETWORKED WORLD

No longer is knowledge and information tied to workplace hierarchy. In an insightful article from HBR called From the Knowledge Economy to the Human Economy , there is this telling para that reflects the organizations and workers of the future: “ In the human economy, the most valuable workers will be hired hearts. The know-how and analytic skills that made them indispensable in the knowledge economy no longer give them an advantage over increasingly intelligent machines.

THE CHANGING NATURE OF WORKPLACE LEARNING

They require the sharing of tacit knowledge, which cannot easily be put into a manual. In addition, tacit knowledge flows best in trusted networks. This trust also promotes individual autonomy and can become a foundation for organizational learning, as knowledge is freely shared. Without trust, few people are willing to share their knowledge. Recently, I read two posts that to me reflected the changing nature of work — from divergently different perspectives.

However, while technology advanced forcing us to work differently, the human mindset and the accompanying organizational management models did not. And this takes us back to Taylor, command and control, hierarchy, and the other well-known and esteemed pillars of modern day management.
