Dear Ninez,
this RFP might be of interest to a couple of KMers I know, that have their own company. I will share the message with them :-)

Thanks for letting us know.
All the best,
Ginetta

Re: MS Teams Attendance Tracking and GDPR #tools

Susan Hanley
 

I reached out to a Teams and GDPR expert, Martina Grom from Atwork (atwork (atwork-it.com)
Here is what she said: 
I can only answer from my customers perspective and there was not a big issue as it was seen the way that everyone in a meeting already sees who attends and can keep that list. BUT – this are some companies and others might see it differently as GDPR is only a guideline with thousands of interpretations by worker councils and others. If a customer has a Data subject Request process in place, he will be able to answer those requests also for those attendance lists. That means: if a customer has a ready policy set for all things GDPR, he can use the functionality, but he needs to be aware about the impact.

Re: Knowledge management system types in Public Institutions #question #public-sector

Gordon Vala-Webb
 

Having worked in the public sector (and quasi-public sector) including building a KM program, I'd suggest that KM tools / systems aren't different there.

They are related to the nature of the business problem that you are trying to solve (e.g. a call centre's KM problems are the same whether it is public or private; complex knowledge work is the same whether it is lawyers in a law firm or policy advisors in Cabinet Office).

Re: Exceptional KM Examples #question #case-studies

Paul,

Congratulations on the success of your KM program.  I like that the emphasis is based on a business strategy and the alignment of the KM program to the business needs that supports that strategy.   Makes sense that the executive leaders would endorse the program.

I do have a couple of questions:
  • How broad was your program? Was it a Department wide program, or targeted to achieve a specific goal on behalf of the Board?
  • What kind of human capital components were involved in the program? Onboarding, blended in-person / eLearning, other?
  • Of these I am curious to know if ISD (Instructional Systems Design) was part of the planning, design, implementation, and delivery requirement?
  • What classes of knowledge were delivered? Documents, consumption-based Q&A? Explicit cognitive knowledge presented in eLearning formats?
  • How long has the program been in effect?  
  • Is the program adaptive, meaning, does it evolve as external conditions change?
  • How large was the team that developed the program?
  • Are other departments looking at your program as a successful template?
So good to hear KM success stories.  That is why I am asking these questions.  KM needs to be celebrated every way we can.  

Thanks for the good work!!

Hi Bit – I did not realize you were on this list. Good thing I did not embellish your comments. :-). (The KM community is small and I might have assumed you followed this group)   

I think it would be terrific to push it out to the group with the caveat/request that it not be shared widely - unless we want to jump the gun on Reed’s line up <smile>  Of course your call. 

And Jane I don’t recall if I thanked you for sharing the podcast that we did. Appreciate it.

If you would like to receive a copy, send a mailing address to seth@... and I will get one out to you.

Subject: [SIKM] ontology #taxonomy

 

Dear SIKM members
In my company (Framatome - we design and build nuclear reactors), we are in the process of launching an "ontology initiative". The intent is to build a top level data model that could be used across many knowledge bases of the company as a standard classification structure. In essence, it is about building a set of about 20-30 homogeneous taxonomies, for example "company activity", "manufacturing process", "organization", "product", "method/tool" etc... where different classes would be related to one another, such as hereunder on a simple example.
The idea is of course to both to enforce better interoperabilty of our knowledge bases, and to improve collaboration across the company through the use of a common dictionary of metadata, tags and keywords.
In essence,it is about building Framatome's "lingua franca".
We have two issues with this project
A- very few people in my company understand the concepts of terminology, taxonomy, ontology, or knowledge graphs. So gathering a team of passionate people around such an initiative is hard, and we cannot have all the stakeholders involved.
B- we believe we need some form of coaching to facilitate our working group, chartered to develop a high-level ontology starting from a set of classification taxonomies that are often used inside the company, with of course some variations from one knowledge base to another.
So my question to you is: do you have a contact with a taxonomy/ontology consultant who could help run our various workshops ? And if this person could be based in France, Germany or the UK, it would be even better.
I look forward to your valuable advice.
Many thanks in advance, and warm regards,

Martin.
