IBM Lotus Connections – We the Knowledge Managers

  1. Hi Jon ! Thanks a lot for dropping by and for the feedback ! Yes, I think so, too. At least, I have been advocating for it for a couple of years and I am really glad to see / read how more and more people seem to be agreeing that it is perhaps now a good time to move on. I just hope we would be able to learn from the past on what worked and what didn’t and use it to our best execution of KM 2.0, because the way I see it I bet it is going to be way too much fun and exciting ! So, bring it on! 🙂

  2. There’s another side to this as well. Traditional KM was not really about knowledge but the management of secrets. By that I mean that management had become so frightened by compliance – especially SOX – that they needed and wanted an iron grip control over the environment. They got that OK but completely stifled creativity in the process so rather than freeing up creativity, they locked it down. What we’re now seeing is KM as it should be – no constraints.

  3. Next generation KM (KM 2.0 if you like) has already arrived, its just the enterprise technology is finally catching up…”This next generation of knowledge management is more interested in social networks and the flow of knowledge between the people in them, than content management as we saw in the past. This latest evolution is reflected in the new Australian Standard for Knowledge Management (AS 5037-2005) published in October 2005.” Source: Knowledge Management: How to separate the wheat from the chaff http://users.bigpond.com/chieftech/downloads/kmwheatchaff.pdf (PDF, 108KB)

  4. Hi folks ! Thanks ever so much for sharing those thoughtful comments and for adding some really good input to the overall conversation. I thought it would be quite handy actually to share them both as a new weblog entry so that other folks who may have missed them may get a chance to go through them and add further up into the conversation. You can find the follow up weblog entry over here.

    Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and for dropping by !
