Diagnosing Knowledge Management Problems with a Social Innovation Framework

May 07, 2019   |  By Jamie Muskopf | Guest Blogger

Social Innovation can be defined as “the systematic disruption of social norms to effect social change.” As knowledge managers, we are quick to learn that much of the work we do involves not simply designing better processes and using technology advantageously, but disrupting the social and behavioral norms of people in our organizations in ways that enable their successful participation in new processes and technology related changes.

Mission to take KM to Where it Belongs: Charting a New Destiny for Knowledge Management

Mar 08, 2019   |  By Dr. Randhir Pushpa | Manager, DXC Technology

Recently scientists discovered a new organ in human body “Interstitium”, probably one of the biggest. It was always in the plain sight, but it was never recognized as an organ. Knowledge is also probably suffering from this overlooking. While it is underlying any activity done by organizations and the ability to manage knowledge directly impacts performance and competitiveness of an organization, this is completely missed.

If you have Netflix, you’ve probably seen Tidying Up pop up on your feed.

Jan 23, 2019   |  By Dr. Randhir Pushpa | Manager, DXC Technology

When charting a new destiny for KM, it is important that we get the basics right. The basics involves understanding what Knowledge is for organizations.

Making KM Clickable With Search

Jan 08, 2019   |  By Zach Wahl | Enterprise Knowledge

I’ve been in the business of Knowledge Management Consulting for the vast majority of my career and, in my experience, one of the most challenging aspects to KM is its intangibility. I’ve helped an array of organizations to define their KM Success Metrics and KM Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in order to make KM measurable and tie it to business value and hard return on investment. In these cases, though, many of these KM KPIs are only measurable over years and often have a stronger demonstration of value to the organization rather than the individual.

Undiscovered Assets - How Tacit Knowledge Can Bring Value to Your Organization

Dec 05, 2018   |  By Rebecka Isaksson | Open Text

I find that quite often when we say Knowledge Management, we actually mean Content Management or other aspects of explicit knowledge. That is a logical starting point for most of us, for historical reasons but also because it is the easier of the two knowledge dimensions to quantify and measure both progress and business impact.

Case Study: Revitalizing a Law Firm Intranet

Nov 14, 2018   |  By Oz Benamram | CKO, White & Case LLP

Law firms, like other professional services, are constantly looking to improve our knowledge-management strategies, i.e., to share and reuse valuable work product and leverage institutional knowledge. When properly executed, these programs translate into efficiency, higher quality work, happier clients, and more engaged employees.

"The Knowledge team took an incredibly complex backend product—one that searches a content-management system, matter-profiling system, client database, HR database and lawyer bios—and made the experience feel simple."
