No, Matt. That wasn’t there in the description! Yes, that would be a very important piece, although it could be discussed later in the interview cycle!?

Re: KM and Product Management question #question

Nirmala Palaniappan
 

Hi Lizzi,

If possible, could you - in a few bullet points - describe the functions of the product management team? That may help me suggest a few things. 

One of the ideas I’ve been working on recently is the practice of posing the “right” questions to ensure that the project team gains new knowledge, understands root causes and changes to be made and share learnings from mistakes etc.

Agile methodologies/practices could be infused with questions that lead to knowledge sharing, learning and action focused on business benefits.

We're in the midst of an agile transformation, and I'm looking for ways to make the need for connection between the work explicit, and how KM practices (like metadata tagging/retagging) can become more agile and nimble.

Any resources or best practices you can recommend? How to we make KM more agile?

Re: Information Professionals Wanted #jobs

Arthur Shelley
 

Hi Patrick and John,

 

I agree with Patrick that the success stories of KM can (sometimes, not always) be the small nuggets of gold in a dark pit of poor performance more widely across the organisation. I have found that sharing the failures can also be quite useful as they highlight what goes wrong and the impacts this can have. The fear of being embarrassed can be a wonderful motivator for those whose perception of their “position” is elevated. Although even this sometimes does not work. I remember advising of a series of risks that were likely to happen if the appropriate level of expertise was not built prior to a major milestone (with mitigating solutions). I was shouted down by the consulting partners on the project as being a “non-team player” and a pessimist. Management took the advice (and accepted the blind optimism) of the external consultancy party…

At the milestone, most of the highlighted risks happened (because the people responsible for the changed roles did not have the required knowledge to do them effectively). The milestone crashed the business and it lost $64 million in sales in the first month. The solution to the problem…? Hire another busload of employees from the consultancy business (at a cost less than 64 Million, but still requiring considerable unbudgeted allocation to be “extracted”). I guess I then understood what they meant by “non team player.” It appears I had chosen the “wrong team” to play with and misunderstood their purpose. The role of some consultants can be to create demand, and they certainly did that! We need to understand where the “knowledge” comes from and how credible their capabilities are and what their real motive is behind the advice they give.

 

It is good to have a range of stories to share that relate to a diversity of situations. Sharing something close to the bone, either as a positive or a negative, can be useful to influence stakeholders at all levels. Real examples are important and told truthfully, they can help influence decisionmakers – sometimes with optimism and at other times with a dash of pessimism (loaded with solutions to prevent the poor outcomes).

Hi John - of course I was speaking with the benefit of hindsight and also with tongue in cheek :)

 

The kernel of seriousness inside that was that whenever we turn something into a fad, the rhetoric always exceeds the reality,  the stories we hear are filtered for the extraordinary, the disappointments are shuffled into the shadows, and so we only get the Hollywood version, which does not reflect the everyday encounters we suffer in the field. I think it is not unrealistic to attempt to be more truthful and unvarnished, no matter the sophistication of our implements. That’s the lesson I try to take to heart.

If we had made it about the people and not systems we would also be a lot further along. The OPM group studying AI discovered that they need KM as a formal job series to aid them in understanding the practices. Now OPM is looking for federal contacts for people who hire or supervise KM. They have plenty of DoD where it is more prevalent. If we had also set forth a standard for what KM is we would be further along. Making it an inspected program would have done it also. In the past there are many was to identify what missteps were took along the way but remember those Giants of industry were plowing without their ox, using a hoe to do the work we are using tractors on.

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,

 

As the Head of KM at Takeda Pharmaceuticals, I am looking for a couple of *consultants* that fit the attached professional profile.

 

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.

 

Dreamers need not apply; hostility toward the indiscriminate usage of the word "disruptive" preferred   😉

 

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.

Hi John - of course I was speaking with the benefit of hindsight and also with tongue in cheek :)

The kernel of seriousness inside that was that whenever we turn something into a fad, the rhetoric always exceeds the reality,  the stories we hear are filtered for the extraordinary, the disappointments are shuffled into the shadows, and so we only get the Hollywood version, which does not reflect the everyday encounters we suffer in the field. I think it is not unrealistic to attempt to be more truthful and unvarnished, no matter the sophistication of our implements. That’s the lesson I try to take to heart.

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.

Columbia University Info and Knowledge Strategy program info session #learning

Brett Patron
 
Edited

*edited to include RSVP Info below*


For those seeking an interesting and challenging approach to studying applications of knowledge - one with both strong academic underpinning and immediate, real-world applications - please consider this program.

On Wed Feb 10 [6pm Eastern] Beth Semaya, Ph.D. will be hosting an online info session. Presenting will be a trio of IKNS perspectives, including one of my mentors Ed Hoffman and one of my Cohort classmates Naureen Aziz - all of whom are compelling.

Knowledge Management, and the associated disciplines regarding information and data, are rapidly evolving and increasing in value, especially in this COVID environment. Understanding that impact, and how to help organizations realize that value, is a critical capability.

The IKNS program could be the catalyst for a new career path, provide some useful perspectives to enhance your current management, business, or government role or, like for me, bolster your current or burgeoning KM career pursuits.

Veterans, Columbia University does an excellent job of incorporating and supporting you. GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program cover virtually all expenses, so there was very little "out-of -pocket". 

I hope you will sign up and attend this session.
RSVP – http://bit.ly/2O5VJhi
Event Date – Wednesday, Feb 10
Time – 6pm EST

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.
