Visions 2: first reviews in

I was already getting twitchy when the first preliminary comments from one of the peer reviewers came in (well, they came in a while ago but I only just saw it :-)). The gist goes like this: 1. generally speaking, this paper is not as well argued as you have gotten me (and your readers) … Sigue leyendo

Visions of KM in practice, and in plain business English

Well, the draft is finished and in the hands of trusted reviewers (or travelling toward them) for a first intensive round of kicking. So what I’m linking here is just a preview ;-). A rough-edged, bland, pretentious and too-easy-to-understand 25-pages brick. As a friend said, it’s a sort of «KM for dummies«… but aimed straight … Sigue leyendo

Upcoming: Visions of KM 2

As announced, and thanks to the slack provided by the medical issues of this month, work in the second installment of the last series is coming apace. Or something close :-). It will deal with the business manager’s perspective of KM. Indeed a friend of mine has called it (the early draft) «knowledge management for … Sigue leyendo

Writing about visions of KM: the business angle

As mentioned yesterday, I’ve just retaken the last series of white papers. The aim is to give different perspectives into what it means to use KM, and how to go about it. It’s all well and good to know that the high management «get» the need to «do KM» but that does not mean anybody … Sigue leyendo

New business models

As I set out to write part two of «Visions of KM in practice«, I think I’ll start with the acknowledgements. This piece by JP Rangaswami (CIO and visionary) includes, together with many other sensible things, a nice sum-up of management principles that need to be taken into account in modern firms. Two snips: «As … Sigue leyendo

The basics of KM

It takes a computing student to underline something that gets forgotten in the 2.0 feeding frenzy. Here, Anupom takes the trouble to remind us: KM is meant to improve business efficiency. Period. It starts with the basics: documenting processes, documenting applications, documenting code, documenting decisions. Explaining what is what and why it’s so, in a … Sigue leyendo

Systems planning and KM strategies

There’s a recurrent theme in companies that try to adopt KM strategies and tools, and which look into implementing Web 2.0 ideas and technologies: the need of the management (and most specifically, of the systems management team) to get a clear, nice, well-defined plan to stick to. That doesn’t usually work anywhere, but least of … Sigue leyendo

Visions of KM in practice (draft PDF)

As you (*) may have noticed, I’m somewhat interested in the more practical issues of knowledge management from an organizational perspective. In other words: what is KM good for, what does it deliver, how does it fit in the organization, what are the roles of management and IT, and what does all that «2.0» buzzwording … Sigue leyendo

Nuevo white paper: Sistemas y gestión del conocimiento

Por una vez y esperando que sirva de precedente :-) publico una versión española completa de uno de los white papers de Macuarium Network. Como indica el texto, se trata más bien de una recopilación de las notas que deberían acompañar a cinco diapositivas, hechas con la intención de explicar mi visión de los ámbitos … Sigue leyendo
