Early opinion on the survey question set…

"Very good questions…" US Army
"Challenging and enlightening questions" Culbert Consulting
"Rarely has a questionnaire made me question my own practice so much…" United Nations

We have put together a survey and I know how precious time is, but we really need the help of people from this group if this is to be a success.

We have had fantastic feedback on the value of the question set and we
sincerely hope that you see the benefit in what we are trying to
achieve.

The survey has been designed for senior managers, executive managers or knowledge managers in organisations; consultants are encouraged to contribute, but this data will be separated out in the data analysis.

The Knowledge Management Observatory™ Global 2011 Survey has been designed to examine Knowledge Management activity across countries and sectors. Your responses will contribute to the contextualisation of current Knowledge Management practice and underlying satisfaction or dissatisfaction in performance.

All participants who fully complete the survey will receive an extended Executive Summary by email, detailing top-level findings; the full report is due to be published by Ark in first quarter 2012.

The report will be anonymous and all responses kept confidential, please see our data protection statement for further details. The Knowledge Management Observatory™ and K3cubed™ Ltd. exist as spinout projects from the University of Edinburgh, an institution with a valued reputation as a highly trusted research partner.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this project and we hope the intelligence gathered will bring added value to your Knowledge Management activities. The survey should take approximately 25-30 minutes to compete.

Re: Case studies of organisations that have dramatically reduced their use of email #case-studies #call-for

Jack Vinson <jackvinson@...>
 

I agree with Matt's observation: if companies aren't shouting about it, it probably isn't happening.  Another option is that for those companies who are getting some success, it is likely to be localized in pockets that aren't interested in rocking the boat.

The Traction User Group conference in October had several users of that particular software talk about the impact they were having on changing the approach to using email.  Rather than email reduction being a focus of their programs, it was a happy side effect of doing more and more collaborative work within that environment (Traction) than with email flying back and forth.  The website for the TUG has a number of the presentations posted, and even a few video interviews with customers: http://traction.tractionsoftware.com/traction/permalink/Public1863.  I don't recall which ones had specific references to email reduction.  I also mentioned email reduction in my summary of the conference. http://blog.jackvinson.com/archives/2010/10/18/observable_work_at_tug2010_owork.html

Two thought leaders in the knowledge management domain, Alex and David Bennet, will lead us through an explanation of what makes a knowledge management professional. Based on their deep and long engagement in the field of knowledge management, the Bennets suggest that a knowledge management professional is multifaceted individual -- a thought leader and facilitator of new ways of thinking, is an individual who ensures the flow of information and knowledge, is a capturer, context connector and translator of ideas, is a searcher for and identifier of ROI and performance measures, a strategic and a systems thinker, an application and information technology specialist, a strategist and systems thinker, a context provider, and a change agent and knowledge tapper.


Re: Case studies of organisations that have dramatically reduced their use of email #case-studies #call-for

Matt Moore <innotecture@...>
 

Dave,

This list is proving surprisingly hard to source. Here in Australia, ABS have
been working in their somewhat unique environment for nearly two decades. But
many organisations are not shouting about their independence from email which
leads me to suspect that many haven't got it cracked yet.

As for social media, plenty of case studies out there (mostly supplied by
vendors)

Would be nice to share a list of those organisations if at all possible.
Also, I am looking for any organisations that are putting social media to
good use for an exercise we are running at the IIM conference in May.

Hello,

I'm writing a position paper for a client around alternatives to email
within organisations so I'm looking for organisations that have actually
done this (yes, I have dropped a line to my former colleague Luis Suarez).

Any leads gratefully accepted. If I get enough then I may compile them into

Many thanks,

PAPER ONE

 

Valuing Knowledge-Based Initiatives: What We Know and What We Don’t Know

 

Hind Benbya (GSCM-Montpellier Business School, France)

 

The objective of this paper is to provide an overview of the current state of theory and practice on valuing Knowledge-Based Initiatives (KBI). Drawing on the literature concerning IT and business value, this paper summarizes what is known about valuing IT-based initiatives, discusses the specificity of KBI and outline main challenges that continue to limit research in this area. This paper also examines how managers deal with these challenges and what metrics they use to assess knowledge value. These managerial insights are derived from interviews as well as empirical analysis of several Silicon Valley firms. This paper gives an emerging approach for valuing KBI and illustrates its implementation with a case study from IBM.

PAPER TWO

 

The Effects of a KM Strategy on KM Performance in Professional Services Firms

 

Reimar Palte (Kühne Logistics University (KLU), Germany)

Knowledge management (KM) is a critical issue in professional services firms (PSFs). Many researchers define a KM strategy as a crucial driver of KM success in corporations. Research demonstrates that there is a positive relationship between KM strategy and the performance of KM processes, which are both closely related to KM success. In the longitudinal benchmark survey presented in this paper, based on an integrated KM framework and focusing on PSFs, the authors found evidence of such an effect, that is, KM strategy’s impact on KM success.

PAPER THREE

 

Knowledge Management: Realizing Value through Governance

 

Suzanne Zyngier (La Trobe University, Australia)

 

Knowledge Management (KM) governance is the implementation of authority through a framework to ensure the delivery of anticipated or predicted benefits of KM strategy development and implementation in an authorized and regulated manner. KM governance also relies on measurement and evaluation of the effectiveness and efficiency of all aspects of KM, particularly the outcomes of strategy implementation to ensure that strategic benefits are realized. This paper examines the results of a global survey of people involved in the development and implementation of KM strategies. Responses came from 34 countries across every continent. Using descriptive and inferential statistics, this paper finds clear evidence of the measurability of KM outcomes through KM governance. These research findings strengthen the proposition that KM governance supports the capacity of KM governance to realize and reveal the value from, or the return on investment (ROI) of KM strategy development and implementation; the selection of KM tools and techniques is less of a consideration in this regard.

PAPER FOUR

 

A Knowledge Management Tool for the Interconnection of Communities of Practice

 

Élise Lavoué (Université de Lyon, Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3, IAE Lyon, France)

Sébastien George (Université de Lyon, INSA-Lyon, France)

Patrick Prévôt (Université de Lyon, INSA-Lyon, France)

 

In their daily practice, practitioners belong to local communities of practice (CoPs) within their organisation. This knowledge is rarely capitalised upon because discussions are mainly verbal. Practitioners can also belong to general CoPs online. Within these general CoPs, discussions are rarely linked to the context in which they appeared, since the members are from different companies or institutions. This paper (1) connects these two levels of CoPs by contacting practitioners belonging to CoPs centred on the same general activity but who are geographically distributed and (2) capitalises on the produced knowledge by contextualising, allowing it to be accessible and reusable by all the members. The authors detail the main results of the research: (1) a model of the interconnection of CoPs (ICP) to support knowledge sharing and dissemination; and (2) a specific knowledge management tool for the ICP knowledge base. The authors apply the model and platform to university tutors by: (1) developing a use case, which links the model and the TE-Cap 2 platform and highlights the new possibilities offered by the knowledge management tool; and (2) conducting a descriptive investigation lasting for five months.

Cyborg Metadata article on Images #metadata

Matt Moore <innotecture@...>
 

Hello,

I was quite please with how this turned out (special thanks to David Riecks for
his assistance): http://innotecture.com.au/2011/02/24/cyborg-metadata-2-images/

Although I can imagine the howls of outrage about some particular image metadata
system that I have probably missed or misrepresented in some way.

Regards,

Matt
