Re: McKinsey reports making the case for KM #value
If I could build on Arthur’s insight, I would add that another useful question one should as: “What outcome(s) do you want from your investment and focus on KM to solve the (specific) business and operational challenge(s) addressed in 1 and 2 below. This helps you to get from where you are to where you want to be.

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:
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. 😊
