  7. 7. Cynefin Complexity
  8. 8. 2. Context for K-Hub KM • Getting knowledge into the hands of decision makers – Research should NOT sit on the shelf or in your head only • Building relationships with decision makers and ‘bridgers’ – You don’t have to it all yourself • Generating solutions for range of important challenges – Often complex – Collective intelligence needed – No time to reinvent the wheel • Learn and share – Legacy for our institutions, countries and region – Adapt to changing environments
  9. 9. 3. Some KM Definitions “Knowledge management is the process of capturing, creating, distilling, sharing and using know-how.” – Davenport (1994) / Collison&Parcell (2001) “Knowledge management is the art of transforming information and intellectual assets into enduring value for an organization’s clients and its people.” - Stan Garfield, Deloitte (2014)
  10. 10. 3. KM Definitions cont’d “Knowledge management is about ensuring that conversations and documentation help us learn to be more effective, innovative, relevant, purposeful, connected and connectable.” – Ewen Le Borgne (2012) “It is what makes us more resilient, adaptive and innovative, beyond the immediate challenge we are facing.” – added in 2014
  11. 11. 4. KM Processes – Codification, systematization of information, systems, operations • Explicit knowledge, lessons learned, collection – Sharing, creating via experience, conversation, reflection, improvement • Tacit knowledge, connecting people, connection – Reflecting, learning, adapting and applying • Resilience, complexity (collection + connection) – Networking and collaborating • Collective intelligence, connection – Visualizing • Making the invisible visible, sense-making (creation)

  14. 14. Activity: After Action Review Peer Review Process for ‘Knowledge Product Concept Notes’ – What was intention? – How is it going in reality? – Strengths/Weaknesses of system – Improvements or ideas for moving ahead Volunteers: facilitator, recorder, timekeeper (15 minutes) Ref: http://www.kstoolkit.org/After+Action+Review
  15. 15. Questions I ask with my KM hat on: • How are we learning as individuals & how can the K-Hub learn as a network? – What legacy are we leaving? – What happens if ‘Bob’ leaves? • Are we re-inventing the wheel? • What tools can help facilitate change? – And quickly! • How can we cope with complexity?
  16. 16. KM the big idea
  17. 17. 5. KM in the K-Hub Where might KM help overcome challenges and achieve your aspirations for the future? Activity: 1. Looking back at our journey map, assign a KM star where you think a tool or process might be helpful. 2. Volunteers to share ideas…
