Microsoft buys LinkedIn for $26bn - What does this tell us about the value of Human Capital and Social networks?

Jun 14, 2016   |  By Rooven Pakkiri | Social Knowledge Management Consultant

So the truth is out - paradoxically in an age of digital transformation, human capital is becoming the great differentiator. Microsoft’s eye watering price paid for LinkedIn makes the argument for the increasing value of Human Capital and Social Networks. Indeed the case is even more compelling when you understand that LinkedIn is still a loss making company.

Digital Transformation & Productivity - Part III

Jun 09, 2016   |  By Rebecka Isaksson | Director, KM Programs - Microsoft

Too busy to get help?  In my second post in this Blog series, I talked about a situation that I think most of us find too familiar: being stuck in the “I don’t know but I don’t have time to learn!” dilemma. This week I want to start sharing some of my tips & tricks to breaking that vicious circle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Digital Transformation & Productivity - Part II

May 18, 2016   |  By Rebecka Isaksson | Director, KM Programs - Microsoft

Are you too stuck in the "I don't know but I don't have time to learn!" dilemma?

In my last post I talked a bit about Digital Transformation and how the multi-faceted and extremely high-paced transformation that most of us are in the midst of right now, is rapidly increasing the need for us all to “work smarter”. To some of you, this is a bit of a cliché and something that some managers/leaders repeated more often than actually applicable, some 7-8 years back. It was one of those buzzwords that got abused to the point of ridiculousness.

Digital Transformation & Productivity - Part I

Apr 20, 2016   |  By Rebecka Isaksson | Director, KM Programs - Microsoft

Looking at a few keynotes from one of our internal, semi-annual technical conferences, and reflecting on some of the many Microsoft and Customer stories I heard on my recent travels in Europe, it doesn’t take a lot to see how they are all converging around one thing: Digital Transformation.

Is KM a Science? The Verdict

Feb 10, 2016   |  By Lesley Crane, PhD

We recently featured a two-part article by Lesley Crane, considering the question of whether knowledge management is a science.  (Part I, Part II)  Alongside the article, we included an open survey asking readers what they think.  This caused quite a stir, and we had 186 responses in total. So, what did the community think on this question?

Learning from Dirt Bikes

The ability to learn and repurpose knowledge from a specific circumstance is a key to ingredient to innovation.  There are a number of ways that KM practitioners can leverage knowledge and learning.  Some of the techniques most used by KM practitioners include: (1) knowledge capture, (2) knowledge leveraging, (3) knowledge creation, (4) Lessons learned and (5) Best practices.

Is KM a Science? (Part 2 of 2)

Jan 20, 2016   |  By Lesley Crane, PhD

Lesley Crane continues her discussion as to whether or not KM should be considered a science. . . Our survey results will be published next week.

Consequently, one can envisage that a scientific field is characterised by dominant theory, a body of appropriate research and knowledge, and a lively research agenda. From an academic perspective, the field of Knowledge Management possesses all of these characteristics.

Is KM a Science?

It comes as no great surprise that a recent investigation of C-Suite respondents finds creativity and innovation, and creating a truly service culture to be top priorities. To this wish list we could easily add sustainability, managing change in a disruptive VUCA environment, and responding to the volatility of consumer demands. All of these issues share one thing in common – they position knowledge and knowledge workers front and centre.  Easy to say, not so easy to do.
