Re: Scholarly Article - need your input #call-for

Guillermo A. Galdamez

Hi Scott,

I would love to participate if only I had more background and experience in sustainable development.  However, I would advise you to also reach out to the KM4Dev community, if you have not done so already. You will find many people with a background in both KM and development there.

As they say on the radio, "First time, long time" - first time calling in, long time listener. For my maiden submission, I wanted to ask for volunteers for an article I am writing with my colleague, Dr, Cor Niemand, from the University of Johannesburg, on KM and sustainable development. Please see below, and if you are interested I encourage you take take part in this important research effort. Thank you.


Subject: Call for participants in a study KM and sustainable development

Please consider this call for participants to serve as subject matter experts for a scholarly article on KM and sustainable development.

Purpose: understand, from a philanthropical organization’s perspective, the basic knowledge architecture pillars necessary to facilitate sustainable development in developing countries.

Experts needed: members of the KM community are invited to participate in this study, offering their perspective via the Delphi Technique, which requires the respondents to email their initial responses to Dr. Niemand, the responses are then summarized and scaled, then reworked and until consensus is reached.

Time and commitment: Up to two or so hours over a three-week period. As a member of the panel of experts, you will be asked to respond to a set of questions within 3-5 days, and then to review and rank the responses gathered from the full panel of experts, contributing further comments over the course of this iterative process until consensus is reached. We are looking to conduct this research during the month of August.

Interested? Please contact Dr. Cor Niemand, Head of Department, Information and Knowledge Management, University of Johannesburg. corn@...
