From McGee’s Musings:
KM as a technology issue
What if knowledge management actually is a technology problem?
This perspective suggests that technology’s primary organizational contribution to knowledge management is in establishing a uniform infrastructure and contributing to a consistent language and terminology environment.
To me K-Logs represent the most interesting recent effort to address this need with a simple solution available right now. They offer a starting point that a knowledge worker can understand and build from.
The catch-22 I keep finding myself in is trying to encourage the grass-roots development of KM tools and sharing while simultaneously crafting an organized taxonomy for our klog network. Too much top-down planning and structure will stifle the creativity of klogs during the start-up phase. Yet not enough structural planning will eventually lead to chaos as the network grows.
Anyone worked this out yet?
