Emergent Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

There's been a long running discussion around what Knowledge Management is going to look like going forward and whether big systems that manage knowledge are going to be there. As I read through these, I began to wonder what happened to the idea that KM was going to move along the lines of what Andrew McAfee talks about around Enterprise 2.0. KM would become more of an issue of how you provide structure and get leverage on these free-form tools.

Knowledge Management Core Issues

Tony Karrer

Great post by Denham Grey - Perennial KM issues that are very similar to the core problems that we deal with in eLearning: How to speed learning, increase awareness and share experiences. With an ever deceasing half-life of knowledge , just keeping up has become a major corporate imperative. Sure we have improved search engines, more stuff on the web and many ways to make connections, but the difficulty is making sense and finding people really 'in-the-know'.

Learning and KM: Separated at birth?

Jay Cross

T wo years ago, DevLearn and KM World took place simultaneously in downtown San Jose. I sensed that learning and knowledge management were converging and invited bloggers form both sides to get together at the Tidehouse to share viewpoints and guzzle beer. KM World 2009 is next week. I’ll be in Hope, Arkansas; Washington, DC; and Barcelona during KM World this year, so I’ll miss the show. People already share knowledge within the enterprise.

Learning, KM vs. SM, Information, Web 2.0, and Second Life

Instead, the study found that students use a limited range of technologies for both formal and informal learning and that there is a "very low level of use and familiarity with collaborative knowledge creation tools such as wikis, virtual worlds, personal web publishing, and other emergent social technologies."

What does Google Trends tell us?

Tony Karrer

Google Trends is quite interesting to play around with to see how different search terms have been used within Google. For example, I looked at eLearning as compared with Knowledge Management. You can see that eLearning and Knowledge Management have both been trending downward in searches. Does that imply something as is suggested in: Organic KM: KM Is Losing Steam - Evidence From "The Database Of Intentions" ?

How to speed up Knowledge Transfer  

Learning Wire

billion a year by failing to share knowledge” ( Babcock , 2004). A very confronting figure, but actively managing knowledge can help companies increase their chances of success by facilitating decision-making, building learning environments by making learning routine, and stimulating cultural change and innovation. Due to the current pace of change, Knowledge Management (KM) and Knowledge Transfer (KT) have become essential for business organizations (Tyler et al 2007).

Conversation on Conversations

Tony Karrer

It somewhat started with my post Reduce Searching Start Talking where I suggest that there are points in our concept work where we need to be ready to move from search to conversation. Drafting a program to teach adults to use the right means of knowledge transfer is probably at least as difficult as teaching children to be discerning about information accessible on the Internet.

Knowledge and Learning In The News - 5/23/2005

Big Dog, Little Dog

Most learning management systems are purchased for specific business projects, but it isn't long before they start catering for employee interests, too - such as superannuation or share-option plans. How video games help us learn: Searching for the mechanism. Once and future KM. You're just getting wind of the relatively new concept of knowledge management, which, at it simplestâ€"getting the right information to the right people at the right timeâ€"makes perfect sense.

How Avaya Built Its Own Version of Khan Academy

TechSmith Camtasia

This was a conference focused on services transformation and TSIA asked that I talk about how we at Avaya put together this video knowledge base, including challenges we faced. As most of you have heard, the best example of using video to share knowledge is the Khan Academy. By this point, I hope you are asking yourself why you aren’t already using video for your knowledge base. How to Setup Avaya Aura Session Manager.

Online Coaching

Tony Karrer

A culture that provides access to other people who support learning in a wide variety of ways Easy access to materials that support learning Skills in utilizing electronic tools to manage learning. In other words, possibly supporting ongoing learning to build management skills for a group of new managers. For a knowledge worker, generally its something like the start of a new project or a new kind of situation that sparks the need for learning.
