Re: KM Project Management #project-management

PMI BOK is a useful document for the transactional aspects of project management, but almost devoid of insights in the intangible aspects snd soft skills. It has very little pragmatic advice on building capabilities within a project or the benefits of a project beyond the project itself.
It may be a good guide if a knowledge professional want you learn how to MANAGE a project, but that is a VERY different thing from successfully engaging people in a knowledge creating initiative. Successful KM is largely about Stimulating the flow of knowledge through an organisation to create value (mostly in ongoing iterative cycles to inform strategy). PM (as guided by PMI PM BOK) is largely about focusing on “the Iron Triangle” of Time, Quality, Cost & Scope to deliver a predefined objective by controlling the whole process and then closing it off.
I argue that management is a convergent (Inward focused) mindset and behaviours, whereas a great KM program is much more divergent in character (see image). We need both of course, but many KM initiatives have too much management and insufficient leadership. Happy to share deeper thoughts on this off Forum.
