Re: McKinsey reports making the case for KM #value

Arthur Shelley


The case for knowledge is specific for each circumstance. The optimal proposal needs to be relevant within the context of your organisation. A good way to approach this is to ask a few questions to key people in the organisation:

A. What are the biggest challenges facing the organisation (internal & externally)?
B. What are the biggest barriers to our success in addressing these?

1. Analyse the answers you get for common patterns. 

2. Facilitate a conversation with a diversity of key experienced people to stimulate ideas on possible ways to address for knowledge principles to act on the challenges
This may help you on this aspect:  

3. Develop the best ideas from that conversation by combining them into implementable projects: You can use Cocreated Projects Worth Doing approach for this: 

4. Create a portfolio of projects that have been cocreated by the people in your organisation is then the basis of a knowledge strategy that will be supported and will generate benefits. A communication of stories sharing the benefits from this are the basis of your ongoing/evolving knowledge case. 

This process takes persistence if effort investment, and in doing do builds relationships, trust a flow of benefits. These in turn, develop a community worth being part if that attracts people and engages them in knowledge creation and sharing. It is not easy, but IS worthwhile.

We wish you well - share your stories of success here so others have the confidence to commit & implement as well. 😊
