  7. 7. Can you answer What is KM ?
  8. 8. KM 1.0 = Imposed Technology Incentives Groupware Taxonomies Fileserver Knowledge Database ERP System Reference:
  9. 9. KM 1.0 doesn’t work , because it… … defines knowledge as a transferable good, which can be centrally provided … demands knowledge-sharing without providing context … wants to manage knowledge Reference:
  10. 10. Record. Store. Ignore. <ul><li>Write your knowledge into a database . </li></ul><ul><li>Find an adequate level of detail. </li></ul><ul><li>Maybe somebody will use your knowledge some day. And… maybe not . </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t spend too much of your time on this. </li></ul>Reference:
  11. 11. Real KM = People + Process + Technology
  12. 12. In KM 1.0 the human element was missing.
  13. 13. <ul><li>“ I only know what I need to know </li></ul><ul><li>when I need to know.” </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>“ We always know more than we can tell . </li></ul><ul><li>We always tell more than we can write .” </li></ul>Reference:
  15. 15. “ I like to help, but I have my every day job to do!”
  16. 16. The web enters business .
  17. 17. Enterprise 2.0 <ul><li>Makes KM real. Everyday . </li></ul><ul><li>Helps organizations embrace KM . </li></ul><ul><li>Doesn’t just store knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides knowledge in context and just in time . </li></ul><ul><li>Makes KM a side effect of daily work. </li></ul>
  18. 18. A modern -day tale.
  19. 19. The Challenge: <ul><li>“ We want a snapshot of our </li></ul><ul><li>organization! Who does what, </li></ul><ul><li>when and how?” </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>“ Documenting what we do will help us capture our organization’s knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>Then we can be collaborative and transparent.” </li></ul>
  21. 21. Wrong!
  22. 22. The Journey . <ul><li>Recording information </li></ul><ul><li>in server files and an ERP </li></ul><ul><li>system, on Gantt and flow </li></ul><ul><li>charts and emailing </li></ul><ul><li>doesn’t work. </li></ul><ul><li>“ My department still </li></ul><ul><li>doesn’t know what your </li></ul><ul><li>department needs.” </li></ul><ul><li>— Vice President of Solutions </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>“… but I don’t know what I need </li></ul><ul><li>to know until I need it.” </li></ul><ul><li>— Vice President of Engineering </li></ul>
  24. 24. Information is still in silos.
  25. 25. <ul><li>Information gatekeepers needed </li></ul><ul><li>a new way to look at things </li></ul><ul><li>and a real-time way to </li></ul><ul><li>share information. </li></ul>The Solution .
  26. 26. <ul><li>Team building training techniques led to an </li></ul><ul><li>improved corporate culture and an </li></ul><ul><li>organization ready to embrace </li></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 technology. </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>It’s not enough to buy the </li></ul><ul><li>technology, you have to buy IN . </li></ul>
  28. 28. Enterprise 2.0! = the real KM
  29. 29. People Organizational Culture
  30. 30. Process How the organization gets things done
  31. 31. Technology Tools the organization uses to get things done
  32. 32. A Tool is only a Tool.
  33. 33. <ul><li>Technology without people and context is like using a wrench as a hammer instead of as a wrench. </li></ul><ul><li>It may work, but it’s not the best tool for the job. </li></ul>
  34. 34. The Results . <ul><li>It’s no longer reading the best documents, but most of all finding the right contact person . </li></ul><ul><li>With Web 2.0 we are able to build and maintain networks . </li></ul><ul><li>For Enterprise 2.0 to be successful, it requires the successful implementation of the right cultural, organizational and technological conditions . </li></ul>Reference:
