Lessons Learned: Capturing Knowledge-Soup, is it a waste of...

David Griffiths 24 Feb 2013 at 06:13

Knowledge Management says someone.  Go forth and capture knowledge says another.  Why? Do you ever wonder if you are just wasting valuable energy and resources on solutions where there was never a problem in the first place?  No? Perhaps you should. Knowledge Management is the...

The nature of complexity? Predators needed!

David Griffiths 22 Feb 2013 at 03:31

The economic environment is a diverse ecosystem that, while threatened by ‘extinction events’ such as the banking crisis, endures and evolves; though clusters of strong ties exist, demonstrated by the domino effect brought about by the sub-prime lending fiasco, the ecosystem survives...

The KM Value Pyramid

David Griffiths 22 Feb 2013 at 03:29

One of the common themes that has surfaces in conversations from Helsinki to Indianapolis, to Washington DC to Norfolk (VA), has been the need to move from talking of ‘feelings’, when discussing the value of KM, and the development of the KM value proposition, to conversations driven by...

Black swans, fat tails and risk – So what?

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 13:24

I was recently reading a blog by Nassim Taleb, where he decried the lack of understanding surrounding his book, ‘Black Swan’ when it was originally launched in 2007 – apparently too many people thinking it was about the prediction of outliers (black swans).  I’m not a...

The data, information, knowledge flow

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 12:59

Information and knowledge cannot escape human agency I was speaking with a colleague in the Middle East this week and it never ceases to surprise me that there is still confusion around data, information and knowledge – the prevailing opinion being that all three can be managed without...

Need a powerful way to solve problems? Then this is for you!

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 12:57

“'Elementary', he said". This is about reasoning, as it applies to solving complex problems in organisations. For those of you about to switch off, give it a chance.  You’ll be surprised to find out that there is a lot of academic posturing over something that is...

Time for HR to come in form the cold

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 12:32

Organisations need to manage the boundaries of their operations if they are to coordinate their knowledge resources and, in doing so, become more dynamic, agile and adaptive. This boundary management means engagement with human resources (take a look at my latest keynote upload for more on this)....

Is your Learning and Development function doing enough?

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 12:29

I cannot stress the importance of the Learning and Development function enough when considering the characteristics of complexity, the need to ‘Sense-Probe-Reflect-Respond’ (a synthesis of David Snowden’s ‘probe-sense-respond’ model and Kolb’s experiential...

Keep your currency high, keep asking why, why and why?

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 12:26

Leonardo da Vinci is credited with saying, “Blinding ignorance does mislead us. O! Wretched mortals open your eyes”. I have seen that fundamental blindness mislead projects to their demise.  I have seen managers set out down paths that are obviously misguided, blinded by a...

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 12:23

What does the journey say about the organisation’s culture, values and norms?  Does it reflect the strategic or operational needs when it comes to complexity, resilience and Knowledge Management? If you answer in the negative, what are you going to do about it?  This journey is your...

Putting resililence into practice

David Griffiths 21 Feb 2013 at 12:01

There is no agreed definition for resiliency in practice, which, much like the early work on Knowledge Management, opens it up to fads and ambiguous practice that lacks an appropriate evidence base.  You have probably already seen, through our other blogs, that we are trying to make our...
