  3. 3. Ecology ? <ul><li>Ecology is a branch of sciences dealing with the interactions between organisms and their environment (chemical and physical factors). </li></ul><ul><li>Ecology is a multidisciplinary science that appeals to Biology, Chemistry, Biophysics, Engineering, Mechanics, etc. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Knowledge Ecology ? <ul><li>It is an interdisciplinary field of management theory and practice </li></ul><ul><li>Focused on the relational and social aspects of knowledge creation and utilization </li></ul><ul><li>Providing the infrastructure in which information, ideas, and inspiration can travel freely to cross-fertilize and feed on each other. </li></ul><ul><li>Simultaneously creating, integrating, sharing, and using knowledge . </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Its primary study and domain of action is the design and support of self-organizing knowledge ecosystems </li></ul><ul><li>The traditional view of knowledge management primarily focuses on information, whereas the knowledge ecology adds the context, synergy, and trust necessary for translating such information into actionable knowledge.&quot; </li></ul>
  6. 6. Knowledge Ecosystem <ul><li>A knowledge ecosystem is a triple network : </li></ul><ul><li>a People network of productive conversations facilitated for continuously creating </li></ul><ul><li>a Knowledge network of ideas, information and inspiration, that cross-fertilize and feed on each other, supported by </li></ul><ul><li>a Technology network of knowledge bases, </li></ul><ul><li>communication links, sense-making and negotiation tools, </li></ul><ul><li>that generates business and social Value through the Action of its members. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>Organizational competence emerges from a knowledge ecosystem which can be understood as people networks creating knowledge networks, supported by technology networks. </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Knowledge network- we mean the frequently unmapped web-like connections not among people, but their knowledge and insights interacting with one another. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology network - It is comprised of all the technological means that support communication and collaboration for knowledge creation, sharing and utilization. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Operating Principles of KE <ul><li>Each individual has something to contribute from their personal history and current intentions, which will increase the richness and future possibility of their communities. They will be encouraged to contribute that and structures and practices will support that intention. </li></ul><ul><li>Each individual and corporation is capable of growth and development and the KE community will encourage institutions to create the conditions for that to occur. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing social knowledge is the basis for future viability of both institutions and those who participate in them and we will constantly challenge current knowledge in the pursuit of what is possible. </li></ul>
  10. 11. <ul><li>Freedom is the natural condition for individuals and each individual is responsible for their contribution to the whole and for seeking that which will connect them to the whole. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge compounds when it is engaged with the larger environment. It will be actively shared with others to enhance the possibilities of rapid development and application. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge is situated in individuals, communities and institutions and each has the right to be given credit for what they create and acknowledged for their contribution. </li></ul>
  11. 12. Myth of Knowledge Ecology <ul><li>Knowledge Ecology framework addresses such ‘myth’ about designing KMS </li></ul><ul><li>KM technology can deliver the Right info to the right person at the right time </li></ul><ul><li>KM technique can store human intelligence and experience </li></ul><ul><li>KM technology can distribute human intelligence </li></ul>

  14. 15. Thank you for your attention!
  15. 16. extra <ul><li>Synergy: Behavior of whole systems not predictable from the behavior of separate parts </li></ul><ul><li>Viability: Indicates the ability of a conservation target to persist for many generations or over long time periods. </li></ul>
  16. 17. KE? <ul><li>KE is &quot;ecological&quot; in the sense that the best models we have for knowledge designs that create, sustain, and foster organizational learning and development are natural &quot;learning organizations,“ </li></ul><ul><li>example, ecosystems and brains. Recognizing the value of understanding natural systems, we are also aware that the volitional, language based social systems bring new possibilities for design and feedback to our human institutions. </li></ul>
