I have known Edwin for a long time and respect and appreciate his investing significant effort and resources to generate high quality podcasts. These can help increase awareness of the importance of knowledge for decision-making. We need more services like “Because You Need to KNOW” podcast to supplement aligned knowledge services like Real KM Magazine and SIKM Leaders forum. If the KM community don’t support initiatives to widen the scope and understanding of the role of knowledge, then we can’t expect those outside our knowledge communities to notice that it is of value.
The COVID crisis has highlighted just how important timely Knowledge-informed decisions are, to achieve optimal outcomes as well as real time generated knowledge being acted on as it emerge. Where leaders have listened to the people reflecting and acting on real time data as it is generated have fared best in this crisis. These principles apply to a much wider range of activities in life than a crisis. When we get more people (and especially leaders) to understand this, society will benefit. Interestingly, the same thing happened in the 1918-9 ‘flu pandemic, but when many authorities relaxed their measures too early the second cycle hit. More died in the second than the first because they acted as if it was al over (including San Francisco who got through cycle one relatively unscathed, through disciplined constraint control).
There is no doubt that “return to normal” being sought by many is not a realistic possibility. What we do know is that we will be in a very different place with different expectations of society and probably with different structures. There was a lot broken about the “old systems”, especially far too much short term thinking and actions over longer term strategic sustainable decision-making. This is driven by an “extraction mentality” to harvest the planet, rather than recognising that there are constraints on the ecosystem. With more behavioural adaptability and open to new normal alternatives, we will get to better paces when people are more aware and more open to knowledge principles and practice Lets support the wider sharing of what we know, to assist others to know …
