Transparent Office

» December 26, 2007 In-the-Flow and Above-the-Flow I often hear from wiki champions inside organizations that "Its hard to get people to use wikis" Theres something right about that comment, but also something wrong.

Why Knowledge Management Didn’t Save General Motors: Addressing Complex Issues By Convening Conversation

Conversation Matters

GM was brought down by a flawed strategy, but an organization’s strategy is clearly a product of the knowledge that exists within its walls. The knowledge existed within GM to develop a more competitive strategy. But between 2000 and 2008 knowledge management did not help GM bring that organizational knowledge together in a way that could have saved it from bankruptcy.

The Bamboo Project Blog: More on Scarcity vs. Abundance Thinking

The Bamboo Project Blog

Allen points out that scarcity thinking is the enemy of change management everywhere, not just in relation to IT projects or nonprofits and I completely agree. He suggests that good planning can help people adjust their scarcity beliefs, although I wonder if the right kind of planning is possible when management is in the grip of the scarcity mindset themselves. Posted by: Marie | March 20, 2007 at 07:25 PM Helen, I agree that scarcity thinking is a problem everywhere.

How to Learn From Experience

Conversation Matters

Generative questions are the gold standard of learning from experience becasue they surprise us, engage both heart and spirit, build relationships, and reframe reality ( Bushe 2007 ). Modules developed by leading management thinkers guide these meetings. There is a 10-15 min lesson offered by the management expert on the topic. . Each session has one client, the person with the issue, and up to 11 peers who have some knowledge or interest in that same issue.
