Creating Online KM Course - Requesting Input #kmers #learning


Cindy Young
 

Hello!  I am creating an online KM course for beginning professionals on their KM journeys.

I am starting it off with some history on KM (for instance, Polanyi, Nonaki), basics on tacit and explicit dimensions, terminology: knowledge sharing, transfer, creation, knowledge sharing networks/CoPs, and knowledge mapping,..but I just don't want to get too deep since this is a beginners course.  I will be doing videos for it with pdf transcripts. I would also like to highlight some of the more experienced people in KM in video interviews for this course.

  • I haven't decided on how many modules I will have, but what do you consider are the most essential ideas beginning KM professionals may be looking for to do their jobs?
  • What concepts for beginners would best help them get set up for success?
Thank you for any and all feedback!

Regards,
Cindy

Great question, Cindy! How exciting! Looking forward to the responses. 

I’m very much about techniques, why they work and what contexts are they best for.

Thank you, Aprill.  Looking at how deep to get into everything as well.  I don’t want to introduce something and not give it enough depth to be of help to a beginner. That’s my biggest challenge right now.

Again, thank you.

Regards,
Cindy

The KM Practitioners Class my team runs for Joint Enabling Capabilities Command is a 3 day, 10 Module event.

Focus is on overview/doctrine and our methodology. That includes battle rhythm management, decision support, process mapping, a look at tools,  and gaining leader buy in.

Brett, 

Is this a DoD-contracted COI?  I’m not getting heavy in the DoD path with this since 1) I work for Leidos full-time and 2) so I don’t mix the DoD KM strategy with how a civilian employer can do business.  I know that APQC straddles those lines. 

If you are in the Hampton Roads area, I would love to meet up with you when I get further down the line with course creation.

Regards,
Cindy

Thank you, Murray!  I will do that. I usually talk about the WIIFM for management so that is definitely a skill worth learning at the beginning.

Hi Cindy!

Examples of different KM projects and industries that are heavy-users of KM can help you build case studies so students have an idea of the type of KM work they can apply for

Hi Cindy,
The answer to your question probably depends on your target audience, including the participants' backgrounds and motivation to learn.  Is this class part of a program where they have to take this class to graduate or is it totally independent and the participants have selected this course?  Do they need to understand enough of KM to understand its value and potentially become KM champions within their organizations or do they need to understand enough of KM to become KM managers?  With one course, it's unlikely they will be adequately equipped to become KM managers, but there are lots of people in KM roles who have no specific KM education.  

I have taught KM online for undergrads in the past in a business/management program and I also teach KM to graduate students in a face-to-face workshop format for the Organization Development and Knowledge Management (ODKM) Program at George Mason University.  The syllabus is online, though if the course needs to be moved online in the fall, I will have to make adjustments.   Again, this syllabus was developed to meet a specific set of needs within a broader program.  I also created content for what was meant to be an online course on KM for project managers, with recorded mini-lectures and activities.  That's gathering virtual dust on my hard drive. 

Regardless of format or audience, I'd stay away from anything too abstract and theoretical.  Polaniy and Nonaka in small doses, explained, not just as readings, because in my experience, few students/participants will do any serious readings.  Keep it simple. My biggest mistakes in teaching KM have been around trying to do too much and making things too complex.  So, I'm going back to where I started this message.  You need to start with the students/participants and where they are.  Until you know who they are, how much they already know (or don't know) and why they are in the class, it's difficult to tell where to start and what to cover.  Make it as real, concrete, and practical as possible.  KM can be presented as a fluffy thing with a lot of kumbaya around the value of knowledge sharing and there are so many KM tools and techniques to present that it easily becomes overwhelming. 

Happy to discuss further once I have a better understanding of the target audience for the course and the online modalities. 

Best,
Barbara Fillip

Hello, Barbara,

I will be keeping it at a basic level with my target audience being professionals just starting in a KM career or people who just want to learn about KM basic in general.  I am not looking at the university audience or any certification. I will respond more when I am on a computer tomorrow.

My biggest mistakes in teaching KM have been around trying to do too much and making things too complex.  So, I'm going back to where I started this message.  You need to start with the students/participants and where they are.  Until you know who they are, how much they already know (or don't know) and why they are in the class, it's difficult to tell where to start and what to cover.  Make it as real, concrete, and practical as possible.  KM can be presented as a fluffy thing with a lot of kumbaya around the value of knowledge sharing and there are so many KM tools and techniques to present that it easily becomes overwhelming. 

Happy to discuss further once I have a better understanding of the target audience for the course and the online modalities. 

Best,
Barbara Fillip

Hi Cindy,

 

I am doing exactly the same thing at this moment, i.e. working on putting together a “half a day” training workshop on KM that will be offered as a professional development course. I called it “ Become a Knowledge Management Ambassador”. Aside from some fundamentals such as; what is KM, tacit/explicit, history, KM principles, my main focus will be on practical examples that I have gathered throughout my career working in a professional services industry, KPIs for KM and what success looks like.

 

I am at the early stage, let me know if you would like to connect.

Is this a DoD-contracted COI?  I’m not getting heavy in the DoD path with this since 1) I work for Leidos full-time and 2) so I don’t mix the DoD KM strategy with how a civilian employer can do business.  I know that APQC straddles those lines.

Thank you, Roxana.  Sounds like you are doing well with yours.  Most of my KM engagements have been geared towards operational excellence, but a lot of the feedback I’ve had is about wanting to know how to use KM to improve prevention of knowledge loss and knowledge sharing.  I am going to stay away from KPIs for this course.  I would love to talk about this once I get further down the road because I think we could help each other talk through what we are seeing.

Regards, 
Cindy

Hi Cindy:

In response to your question I think it is important to define your target audience very clearly. This targeting, also taken into account a survey,  has helped us at CCLFI with developing a knowledge management practitioners course. It’s duration is about 6-8 months with 3 months theory and background on KM concepts, business cases, and 3-4 months in which the students select an organizational topic that can be solved or addressed through a KM solution. In the attached course brochure you can view the learning processes and outcomes; 10 KM lessons and the 30 basic km skills students will master. Maybe this overview gives you an idea on the flow and content.

Kind regards

Daan

Hi Cindy,
The answer to your question probably depends on your target audience, including the participants' backgrounds and motivation to learn.  Is this class part of a program where they have to take this class to graduate or is it totally independent and the participants have selected this course?  Do they need to understand enough of KM to understand its value and potentially become KM champions within their organizations or do they need to understand enough of KM to become KM managers?  With one course, it's unlikely they will be adequately equipped to become KM managers, but there are lots of people in KM roles who have no specific KM education.  

I have taught KM online for undergrads in the past in a business/management program and I also teach KM to graduate students in a face-to-face workshop format for the Organization Development and Knowledge Management (ODKM) Program at George Mason University.  The syllabus is online, though if the course needs to be moved online in the fall, I will have to make adjustments.   Again, this syllabus was developed to meet a specific set of needs within a broader program.  I also created content for what was meant to be an online course on KM for project managers, with recorded mini-lectures and activities.  That's gathering virtual dust on my hard drive. 

Regardless of format or audience, I'd stay away from anything too abstract and theoretical.  Polaniy and Nonaka in small doses, explained, not just as readings, because in my experience, few students/participants will do any serious readings.  Keep it simple. My biggest mistakes in teaching KM have been around trying to do too much and making things too complex.  So, I'm going back to where I started this message.  You need to start with the students/participants and where they are.  Until you know who they are, how much they already know (or don't know) and why they are in the class, it's difficult to tell where to start and what to cover.  Make it as real, concrete, and practical as possible.  KM can be presented as a fluffy thing with a lot of kumbaya around the value of knowledge sharing and there are so many KM tools and techniques to present that it easily becomes overwhelming.

Hello, Cindy and SIKM!
I ran the Information and Knowledge Strategy Master of Science for five years and taught the Foundation course for six years. 

Two important starting points were :

1. Morten Hansen and Tierny’s Codification v. Personalization model. (Others have discussed this. Very exciting how this is being challenged with voice to text and auto-classification of unstructured content!) (Harvard Business Review)

2. The neuroscience of leadership by Rock and Schwartz (free article in Strategy & Business). You may laugh, but the students really appreciate understanding that, with tacit knowledge elicitation, “ways of knowing” (declarative, procedural, conditional, relational, systemic) make a difference. (The latter model I write about in my book, Sharing Hidden Know-How, not Rock and Schwartz.)

I have all of the citations — and a pretty long reading list. Happy to share (and @Tom Barfield, I’ve shared this list with you for SIKM Keeeb.)

My best to you- so exciting to be doing this NOW with changes in virtual-ness, auto-classification/machine learning, and cross-organizational collaboration.
