Re: Your KM vision requested #vision

Thanks Arthur for the comments, legal is a big issue and what got me going on it was a paper a MBA/JD student and I presented at the KM track at the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, it was titles "Yours, Mine, or Ours: Discussing Ownership of Collaborative Works in the Cloud.  What we found that in the US the laws are almost counter to collaborative intra-organizational work.  I'm happy to share the paper if anyone is interested....murray

Hi Murray,
Thank you for your insights. The potential synergies between KM and law are enormous, though challenged by the fact that most KM value comes from the application of tacit knowledge in specific contexts and leveraging relationships.

These things are difficult (but possible) to measure and hard to say exactly where the value came from as it is often through socialisation of diverse expertise that the new knowledge is created (so where does it get credited to - something laws and budgets prefer to make clear). I wrote a piece on measuring and estimating tangible value creation from seemingly intangible outcomes in 2009 explaining how to create plausible connections between what happened and valued outputs. This is necessary in order to influence business stakeholders in the language they understand (dollars). The real challenge in law is assigning the value to POTENTIAL, because IP does not have realised value until someone appl ies it. Knowledge and IP are like cash - simply existing does little, they need to flow to create new value. This requires trusted relationships, a wildness to constructively engage in open say sands preparedness to share the value created. Difficult things to clearly define in a legal contract as history of legal disputes shows.

There has been a lot of good stuff posted so I won't reiterate it, however, I will point out the darkside trends we have to be aware of:
KM will have to work with security to create a secure way of storing, sharing, transferring, and using knowledge
KM and the legal system will have to work together to catch up so that the law understands and supports knowledge creation, sharing, and use in intra-organizational teams, and in particularly, with teams that work across national boundaries
KM will have to overcome the large numbers of thought leaders that will be retiring (not just over the next 3 years but for awhile), this will be the great challenge, making succession within organizations, industries, and societies seamless, it is important as if we can't do this then why do KM?
measuring national creation, usage, and sharing of knowledge measures more reliable and real (this is the KAM and KEI) and will become better measures of the knowledge society
KM and knowledge society will continue to work together, especially as the Internet of Things grows to be more predominant
Probably more but this is it for now
