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. Corporate learning and KM are both about getting the job done.

For those who haven’t been bombarded yet by the marketing campaigns, Siri is an intelligent software assistant and a knowledge navigator that essentially functions like a digital personal assistant. Couple of ideas pop into my mind right away about how technology like Siri could help learning – first, to function as an effective search agent within corporate CMS and KM solutions.

Conversation on Conversations

Tony Karrer

In Love the Conversation – Ken Allan discusses the complexity of helping concept workers with the skills around this: The question here is where to start. 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. Yet there is no doubt that discernment forms a large part of selecting efficient and effective means for knowledge transfer.

Online Coaching

Tony Karrer

As I've said many times, for concept workers work and learning are inseparable. 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. Role of Learning Organizations The learning organization's role is to provide support to these workers/learners as they hit learning ignition points. Make it easy for people to publish their knowledge and subscribe to the information they want.

Jay Cross in Ten Years After puts it: In a knowledge society, learning is the work.

8 Dirty Words

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

You think of improving skills and increasing knowledge. They are workers first, and learners second. Knowledge management may be two words, but it’s a single concept. Knowledge is inherently unmanageable. Traditional, top-down KM has failed over and over again. It’s based on the assumption that an elite can figure out what workers need to know, package it as explicit data, and serve it up in a database. CLO online edition. Dirty Words. by Jay Cross.
