Ownership over Accountability

(I really should be at the piano but I find that there are few things on my mind this morning).

Decentralize City

Is your organization highly centralized or highly decentralized?

MLIS classes: Knowledge Management in Organizations

Out of all the MLIS classes I’ve taken so far, Knowledge Management is the one I’ve enjoyed the most. It’s one of the core modules for the Knowledge Management specialization and it consisted of a two and a half hour seminar once a week, which was reduced to around two hours part-way through the semester. 757 more words

V. L. Hunter reblogged this on Dominican University LIS 750 and commented:

I took a KM class in my MLIS program and have worked in KM for 9 years at a major oil/gas company. I initially managed a Community of Practice and later had the more comprehensive role of Organizational Learning Lead. It's my experience that the opportunities are behavioural and cultural vs tools and document storage repositories. At the recent SLA Annual Conference I saw several vendors offering excellent tools, but less discussion about implementation and measuring value by the enterprises that undertake a KM approach. I believe we need at least equal attention to both parts of the process, and I've observed that even the best tools don't solve the problem if people don't utilize them appropriately.

The power of questions

Anyone who has had children has experienced the endless barrage of the “whys” around the age of three years old. “Why is this, Daddy?”  “Why is that, Mommy?” The purpose of this phase of development is to learn as much as possible about the world that these children have been brought into. 467 more words
