Re: Agile Knowledge Management #agile

Franz Borrmann
 

Hi Lizzi,

sorry for replying late, I have just joined the group.
We are applying KM in the same manner as you (knowledge based company- we are strategic & engineering consultants). We are applying agile PM since quite a while (or some hybrid PM as most of our clients are not working agile). We have also seen that agility in KM is certainly a further need, as we often ask ourselves how we can use our knowledge in different environments, how to get the transfer to a topic that is not yet covered but could also profit from what is there. Our clients usually have KM systems (quite mature) but these are made for a purpose that has become obsolete (operation) and now have to adapt to a constantly changing environment (decommissioning).
 
Our way so far is a high level of flexibility in our KM solution. We are running a semantic mediawiki environment and we started off with some prefabricated packages that we currently replace piece by piece by our own adapted solutions (in most cases we find that we can do simpler, but more efficient). This allows us to adapt our KM system quickly within projects and then reuse the new structures with new projects. This sometimes leads to parts that are only filled with some content (because we did only roll out a certain feature in one project) but that's usually OK, because the KM system grows exactly where it is actually needed. As an SME company we can not afford to have a perfect solution. So my answer to your question, what is the best solution for an agile system part: your solution. A solution that allows you to easily edit the structure (without the need for a programmer or a service provider) gives an enormous freedom to do so. In our case the choice for SMW 10 years ago was the right solution as it exactly allows this. Every user can change and adapt structures by a simple wiki and query language. There are tons of examples and a brilliant documentation of this open source software available online. Of course, the solution might be a different one in your case, but I believe that a certain autonomy in the KM system gives you a lot of freedom to be agile where you need it. There are also parts where we try to keep things conservative, right as you describe. Everything that is the basic functionality needs to stay in place and needs to be aligned with the basic ontologies in order to stay compatible with the world outside. 
We have been through similar discussions with "final" reports with one of our clients. They have an own department for report finalization. Unfortunately, it takes them ages to do so. In most cases the reports issued are obsolete to a certain extend as the content is outdated. What we have proposed is to use a wiki for the content generation and issue a report from this content as a kind of snapshot from time to time. Changes that are relevant from the report finalization process can still be fed back into the wiki. The real difficulty turned out to be a cultural one: people have been valued by the number of reports they have issued within the organization and often their personal aims include such reports. For the wiki articles we have thus installed a maturity scale that gives the reader some advice on the content. A clear guideline exists on what needs to be fulfilled for which maturity level. So people quite quickly understand if this article is comparable to a chapter of a final report or if this is an early draft. The thing still to change is the organizations culture, to accept writing of a wiki article as being as valuable as a chapter of a report. If this is then also supported by the management (and part of the variable gratification system, if you want to use money as a motivator), then you might be on the right way to fragment your final reports into much smaller wiki articles (or similar) and thus become more agile and flexible with content. Well of course, I am aware that this is just my humble opinion from my small world, and that there might be additional hindrances and obstacles and numerous different solutions. It works for my company, my client still has a long way to get there, being a far larger organization. There are early adopters among the employees, the prudent and the reluctant ones. Making clear that the value is not the knowledge itself or its form, but its successful application in new projects might be an aspect that helps there.
Best regards,

Franz

Re: Studies of KM Market and Employment Trends #question

Tim Powell
 

Thanks, Nick, for this thorough and enlightening research.  I find your assumptions and method reasonable and credible, given the dearth of more empirical data on this.  (Don’t any government agencies or trade groups collect this important employment data?)

 

Have you done any vertical analysis, i.e., by industrial sectors?  Or even by gross categories like businesses, nonprofits, and government?  My sense is that “knowledge managers” tend to cluster disproportionally in the latter two – though my “evidence” for this is purely anecdotal.

 

Regards,

 

Tim

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.
