Subject: RE: [learning-to-fly] Re: Top 3 challenges in KM
This may be a bit off the wall, but assuming a) climate change is happening and b) there is irrefutable evidence it's at least partially caused by man then how will / can KM help people to share knowledge internationally without travelling and meeting so much face to face in Peer Assists etc...? (ie, less aircraft emissions).
This has been at the back of my mind for a coulpe of years now. I doubt that the answer is solely, or even mainly, technology.
For me, the main challenge right now is the organisation not mistaking busy-ness for effectiveness. ie, it takes time to go through the KM processes but it pays off many fold longer term...
All the best,
suggestion from the fringes: perhaps use a network of NGOs to diffuse the knowledge where it can be used by people? ICT can be used quite effectively to share knowledge internationally without travelling and meeting. You may wish to take a look at an article by B. Shadrach called 'India's Development Information Network: Lessons Learned' (available online at http://www.asis.org/Bulletin/Jan-02/shadrach.html) which describes an initiative of the British Council in India to form a network of development agencies and use ICT to share knowledge.
I used to work at the British Council's library in Calcutta (or Kolkata, as it has been renamed) during that period, and witnessed the manner in which INDEV empowered NGOs who joined the programme. The INDEV website has now been transformed into an entirely different platform, but the lesson remains: change can be brought about more effectively by organisations working with people at the grass-root level than by government diktat. The INDEV experience was an eye-opener for me in the manner in which ICT could be used to create a network and then use that network to diffuse information and enable participants to communicate among themselves.
As KM professionals, we should be able to identify: (a) sources of the knowledge that we'd like to spread, and (b) the networks that we could use to spread such knowledge. An excellent initiative that comes to mind is the 'Archives for Africa' scheme (see http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/4760074.stm) . The global community would be best served if more repositories of knowledge could be made available to those who need it - but can't pay for it. Are there others in this group who can help identify relevant sources/ networks?
