I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

The answer lies across several domains of a knowledge worker’s practice. These are good practices that help us grow our knowledge, but what we really need are mindful, disciplined processes for managing it on a daily basis. What we need is to exercise personal knowledge management, or PKM. PKM is distinct from organizational knowledge management, which is widely used today. Personal knowledge management is, above all else, personal.

BIG DATA, GOOD INFORMATION & A WAY FOR YOU TO USE IT

Wonderful Brain

This is the difficulty with information management in the era of big data; it’s like trying to take a sip from a fire hose.

And therein lies the third concern of massive information management. In this article I want to explore 3 connected ideas.

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

But let’s be clear, even when newer social and informal approaches are added to this old model that let you learn things a little differently, if your learning experience has in any way been organized (and/or managed) by someone else , this is still “old fashioned” learning. It is a very useful approach for getting you up to scratch quickly on a topic with an existing body of knowledge or wisdom. New domains of knowledge are appearing which have yet to be structured and organized.
