Tips from a Veteran Knowledge Management Practitioner

Jun 11, 2018   |  By admin

In a recent post on Lucidea.com, well-known KM expert, Stan Garfield shared his tips for "Seeking Outside Help" in selling KM to others within your organization.  We at KMI have found that this is a common issue faced by knowledge managers, and hope you find Stan's advice useful. . .   

You don’t have to go it alone to sell KM to others in your organization. Take advantage of outside help by scheduling visits with others who are doing KM well, joining and participating in KM communities, using industry analyst reports, or using an outside consultant.

May 31, 2018   |  By Mary Little, Sr. Consultant, Enterprise Knowledge

What is Knowledge Management and Why Is It Important?

Apr 03, 2018   |  By Zach Wahl | President and CEO, Enterprise Knowledge

As I’ve often asserted, Knowledge Management struggles with its own identity. There are any number of definitions of KM, many of which put too much stress on the tacit knowledge side of the knowledge and information management spectrum, are overly academic, or are simply too abstract. At Enterprise Knowledge, we’ve adopted a concise definition of knowledge management:

Knowledge Management involves the people, process, culture, and enabling technologies necessary to Capture, Manage, Share, and Find information.

Knowledge Management is about mindset and people - not technology

Mar 13, 2018   |  By Rebecka Isaksson - Director, Knowledge Management Adoption - at Microsoft

This is an article that has been brewing at the back of my mind for a while. As I have engaged with more and more organisations, on the topic of “Knowledge Management Strategy”, it has been proven over and over again that most of us are making the same mistake: We tend to think that transforming our teams and our companies into a “Knowledge-centric organisation” is all about acquiring the latest collaboration tool, or (re-) defining our processes and scorecards. I can tell you with confidence that it is not.
