Giovanni (I realise this reply automatically disqualifies me, but that’s okay, I‘m not applying)

I just wanted to say how refreshing your email was, and to highlight the following telling phrases:

Consultants who:
"can be seriously engaged in innovative projects”
can demystify the unnecessary hype
can manage expectations,
Dreamers need not apply;
hostility toward the indiscriminate usage of the word "disruptive" preferred

If we had used Bostonian in KM job advertisements from the late 1990s, KM might have progressed faster than it has.

Dear Friends,

I am looking for people with a broad professional and skill profile, able to provide traditional library services as well as  more modern Information Science consulting services to internal stakeholders, and even become influential thought and action leaders in ML, AI etc.

In regard to the deployment on more modern AI/ML projects, I am looking for people who really *know* what is going on, can demystify the unnecessary hype, can manage expectations, can be seriously engaged in innovative projects, are able to create a true perception of what these innovative disciplines can realistically achieve, and can deliver accordingly.

We'll be flexible regarding physical location, but Boston (or vicinity) residence is a plus.

If interested, please reply to giovanni.b.piazza@.... Replies to the group are immediate cause of disqualification 😁

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Webinar: COVID Vaccination Misinformation - 24 Feb 21 #COVID-19 #webinar

Matt Moore
 

More info & RSVP:
https://www.meetup.com/Information-Innovation-UTS/events/276123820/

As a result of a massive medical effort, we now have multiple vaccines
for COVID-19. However developing vaccines is not sufficient to solve
this planetary challenge, people have to take them. Vaccination is a
communications and information challenge as well as a biomedical one.
In the session, we will discuss:

- Why people are hesitant to take vaccines
- The role that different actors (e.g. governments, tech companies,
the general public) play in vaccine information provision
- What this means for the effective roll out of the COVID-19 vaccines,
particularly in Australia

Adam Dunn is Head of Biomedical Informatics and Digital Health at the
University of Sydney. His research programs are focused applied
machine learning in clinical epidemiology and public health. The
multidisciplinary teams he leads have examined the epidemiology of
health misinformation for more than 5 years. Their work includes the
first analyses to examine associations between estimates of
information exposure and vaccination coverage, and now looks at when
and how to address health misinformation safely and effectively in
online communities.

Alex McIntosh is strategy lead at Reset Australia, a research and
advocacy organisation focused on preventing digital harms to
democracy, with a current focus on the rising wave of medical and
COVID-19 misinformation and the threat it poses to our vaccine
rollout. Over the past year she launched Misinformation Medic - a
campaign raising public awareness of social media platforms roles in
amplifying harmful content during the COVID-19 pandemic. She also led
the development of Reset Australia’s Live List policy - a proposal
which would mandate transparency from the social media platforms to
equip health experts with the data they need to tackle COVID-19
misinformation.

More speakers to come.

I’m reaching out because we have the State of Community Management survey in the field for another 10 days or so and last year we did not have enough internal participants to compare average community programs to advanced programs - and that is something I would love to be able to do because it is far more insightful - see these two infographics:




What I did notice in the data last year was that it is bimodal for internal community programs - a small set of organizations are doing this very well and the majority is not. I would love to expose that so others can see/learn from it.
 
I would like to invite members of the SIKM Leaders Community to participate.  The survey link is here: https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/5996017/SOCM2021
 
The survey takes about 20 minutes and in return participants will receive a maturity score and a PDF of their response - and a gift card for coffee as a thank you.

Hi

Naturally, we are all, KMers around the world, concerned with this same issue.
In ISrael the KM forum collaboratively writes and publishes a book every two years- the one that was written (not yet publised) in the past months- This exactly is the title.
I will publish your call for abstracts, to all those who have contributed a chapter.

Hey Araceli, 
I have not worked as a knowledge manager in a district but I have worked in a district as a curriculum technology specialist at the district level for several years, and now I'm a Knowledge Manager at a software company! If you ever need someone to ping ideas off of our discuss happy to help! Interesting I have never come across a district with the position but I can see how useful it would be!

several years ago I was a member of the TechSets committee for California schools.  My role was as a IS/KM/Cybersecurity advisor.  One topic we really focused on was KM for teachers to help spread good practices and materials.  We also discussed curriculum issues but as I recall most of those dealt with teaching IS literacy and cybersecurity literacy to students.  KM was in the discussion also.  Let me know if you want to talk sometime, not sure I have a lot more to add but I'm not sure what you are looking for....murray jennex

a huge challenge. Like John I don't know anybody doing such a job but you may maybe find someone by contacting the following organizations.
 
IKIT at the University of Toronto developed the popular knowledge building theory, founded Knowledge Building International (KBI) in 2012, and is running annual Knowledge Building Institutes around the world.
 
ISKME has engaged in Knowledge Management in the past. (see paper) Current focus is on Open Educational Resources.
 
APQC is at least a leader in the field of Knowledge Management.

Re: Knowledge & Evidence in Decision making - What does the literature say? #research

Murray Jennex
 

I've been slow to respond to this query and I apologize for that but to be honest there is so much material that I just didn't know where to start.  I was the founding co-editor in chief for the International Journal on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (the journal just ceased operation in 2020 but has several years of publications) so have seen much of this literature.  I just don't know where to start, but I am attaching a paper we did on logistical decision making during wildfires (in San Diego actually).  If the question can be more refined I'd be happy to point to more literature.....murray jennex

For the Fire Department there is a lot of information on the https://www.fireengineering.com/ https://www.firehouse.com/  https://www.firechief.com/ https://www.iawfonline.org/wildfire-magazine/ https://www.iaff.org/magazine/ 
Previous knowledge came from there. I was a firefighter, engineer, and lieutenant from 1998 to 2008
You could also look at how the militaries do this type of crisis management when they make operational decisions.

In the spirit of Stephen's suggestion, and to analyse your key point ...

We were wondering if you were aware of any research or data that allows us to understand how operational decisions are made and the types of response activities that are undertaken during an incident response by operational staff? 

 An interesting context is a challenge of introducing Integrated Primary Mental Health Care in Rural and Regional contexts. The history of this goes back to the introduction of Medicare rebates for psychological services in primary care via general practitioners/family physical referrals (introduced in Australia in 2007). When this policy change was enacted, there was not a commitment to the sort of system-based and operational reflexivity you are referring to Stuart. IN many ways, this lack of attention to system-based reflexivity is common across a lot of knowledge intensive industry networks and perhaps is an area that the domain of KM could have advocated for, supported and enabled over long periods of time. Arguing for both empirical and intuitive responses to system pertubations. 

Many psychologists have been arguing and promoting such system-based reflexivity - an example of a recently released publication is this https://link.springer.com/referenceworkentry/10.1007%2F978-981-10-5012-1_9-1 (declaring my sister is the author of this article), published in this book Handbook of Rural, Remote, and very Remote Mental Health.

Noting that the language of practitioner decision-based reflexivity as we would use this in KM does not permeate other knowledge-intensive industry networks such as those that make up any integrated health care service systems. 

I am aware that the Vic Govt emergency service networks have done some very good work over a period of time in emergency management along the lines you are describing, but I cannot for the life of me remember the context in which I heard about this. But given your networks, I am sure you are right on to this. 

For the moment, 


Richard

Hi Stu,
I don't have any specific research, but I think you might find some productive starting points in clinical practice. For example the document below has an extensive section on the process of evaluation and revision of clinical practice guidelines:
Specifically I thought this might be helpful as an overarching approach for your work:
Among possible methods for evaluation of guidelines are the following:
• comparing changes in clinical practice or health outcomes, or both, in areas of exceptionally high guideline promotion with changes in areas of exceptionally low guideline promotion;
• comparing health outcomes in areas of exceptionally high guideline uptake with outcomes in areas of exceptionally low guideline uptake—focus group testing can be useful to elucidate factors that have influenced this uptake.
When evaluating the guidelines it is important to focus on the guidelines themselves, rather than on the clinicians or other service providers. If there is little change in practice, or little adherence to the guidelines, this may be a consequence of a wide range of factors, among them the guideline development, dissemination and implementation process.
This would map nicely to a SenseMaker approach if you were so inclined and wanted to drill down into specific clusters.
Cheers,
Stephen.

Hi all,

The CFA R&D team are currently developing the "Our Operations" section of the 10-year Research Implementation Plan. 
 
We were wondering if you were aware of any research or data that allows us to understand how operational decisions are made and the types of response activities that are undertaken during an incident response by operational staff? Links to the broader decision making field would be appreciated, but anything specific to emergency services is what we are after.
 
We were hoping to design some research which captures the current baseline of response decisions and actions, evaluates their outcomes, and provide recommendations for improvements. This includes the difference between actual decision making and the official planned and reasoned decisions that are often talked about in retrospect once the outcome is known. 
 
It would be wonderful if you could point us in the direction of any people, existing resources, or data that would help us to better understand this space.
