Hmmm….. I’m going to have to think about this one for a while.
I am a firm believer in the idea of Personal Knowledge Management. This has been around forever, technology has simply made it different.
I also believe that Enterprise Knowledge Management exists. But it is not the knowledge of the individual members of the organization that is being managed: it is the knowledge of the organization that is being managed. I’ve been putting together an article/paper on this thought, based on the idea that organizations are intelligent themselves. Some sources for my ideas concerning intelligent organizations include The Genius Within: Discovering the Intelligence of Every Living Thing, Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software, and Investigations.
Slow, but sure.
