Webinar 4: What's missing from Knowledge Management: a Zoom Knowledge Café with David Gurteen
1 July 2020 at 12 noon
David will close this series by discussing what might be missing from KM. KM has been around since the mid-90s and has evolved considerably since then. Nancy Dixon, in her article The Three Eras of Knowledge Management from 2017, describes that evolution from Era 1: Leveraging explicit knowledge to Era 2: Leveraging experiential knowledge and Era 3: Leveraging collective knowledge. David's view on the structure and evolution of KM is like Nancy's except he sees four levels of KM rather than three eras. In his definition, knowledge only exists in the human mind. Anything documented or stored in a computer is information, this includes encyclopaedias, patents, process and how-to information that is often referred to in everyday language as knowledge. David's four levels are "information management", "knowledge sharing", "sense making and decision making" and "agency and communityship". In this Zoom Knowledge Café, David will talk briefly about these four levels of KM as he sees them, especially levels 3 and 4 which he thinks tend to get overlooked. He will then pose the question: "What's missing from Knowledge Management?" and run a short Knowledge Café.
The above webinars will be facilitated by Stephen Phillips.
