SI KM Leaders Call - Using Expertise Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Using Expertise - The Story So Far Matt Moore Innotecture November 2009
  • 2. Our purpose
    • Human expertise critical to organisations (if we believe management rhetoric)...
    • ...and yet very little research carried out on how organisations manage this expertise (or fail to).
    • Joint project between Straits Knowledge in Singapore (Patrick Lambe & Edgar Tan) & Innotecture in Sydney (Matt Moore).
  • 3.  
  • 4. Our methods
    • Narrative collection & sense-making (based on Cognitive Edge).
      • Blog for collecting & sharing stories.
      • Workshops with anecdote circles & archetype/issue extraction (outputs available on wiki).
    • Online survey.
    • All outputs are publically available under CC.
  • 5. Narrative
  • 6.  
  • 7. Blog
    • http://usingexpertise.blogspot.com/
    • Seeded with stories from previous projects.
    • Responses from all over the world (Singapore, USA, Australia, UK, India).
    • Supplemented with anecdotes collected in workshops.
    • 180+ stories so far.
    • Some commenting.
    • Press interest (Australian Financial Review).
  • 8. Workshops
    • 5 workshops completed so far:
      • Melbourne, Australia
      • Canberra, Australia
      • Sydney, Australia
      • Dubai,
      • Washington DC, USA
    • 15-40 participants per workshop
    • Happy to do more (just pay for travel)‏
  • 9. Anecdote circle
    • 8-20 people per circle, 45-90 mins
    • Focusing question – e.g. “Can you remember a time when you saw expertise being valued – or not?”
    • Guide participants away from generalised opinions or facts – otherwise sit back and let them talk.
    • Starts slowly but difficult to stop.
  • 10. Sensemaking
    • Stick stories on the wall - from participants and other sources (e.g. blog).
    • Ask participants to identify characters & incidents -then apply adjectives.
    • Remove adjectives & ideas then mix.
    • Create archetypes & challenge statements.
