Knowledge sharing and reuse

  • Sharing: It's good enough for me, but not good enough for you
  • Creating a demand for knowledge?
  • Communities

  • Diversity, community and knowledge management
  • Online communities: silo breakers or silo makers?
  • What are your thoughts on these?

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

    Eric Herberholz
     

    My 2 cents worth...

    1. Consider attending and networking with those attending the Enterprise 2.0 Conference (www.e2conf.com). This conference last year in Santa Clara was rife with companies selling activity stream based collaborative business software. 

    2. Consider attending, if you are in San Francisco area, the upcoming event of Online Community Managers at our CLSWest Meetup (meetup.com/clswest), and network there to find case studies, etc.

    Oh, OK, so there's 3 cents worth...

    3. Check out a company/product that I discovered called Podio.com. It is great for creative activity stream-based collaborative work. They may be willing to share use cases.

    University of Edinburgh: 2011 KM survey #survey

    Edited

    http://web.archive.org/web/20110327013223/https://www.survey.ed.ac.uk/kmoglobal2011

    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.

    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)

    Wikis:
    http://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/customers.jsp
    http://www.socialtext.com/customers/casestudies.php
    http://www.mindtouch.com/customers_and_partners/case_studies

    Microblogging:
    https://www.yammer.com/about/case_studies
    http://www.socialcast.com/resources/customer_stories.html

    Collaborative Bookmarking:
    http://innotecture.com.au/2010/02/13/bookmarking/ - Since I wrote this article,
    Connectbeam (like Cogenz) seems to have disappeared.

    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.
