Twelve tips to unlock the knowledge-ready advantage

1 Agile KM helps to stay focused and deliver quick wins. Agile methods can contribute to KM in a number of ways, said Bill Kaplan, founder of the consulting firm Working Knowledge. Pilot projects are a way of testing KM initiatives, direction and assumptions. KM challenges today include keeping up with operational tempo, adjusting to or creating new behavior and evolving new metrics. “KM is a long-term journey but you also need to show quick wins,” he said, pointing to after action review (AAR) methods as an example of a quick win. Agile KM helps an organization develop new possibilities, new mindsets and new capabilities.

2 Tie knowledge to learning. “It is not enough to promote a knowledge sharing culture; you need to promote a learning culture,” advised Nicole Sy, KM specialist at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. She shared a range of case studies of Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) Award winners from Hong Kong and China. KM metrics will also have to evolve and cover a range of activities and impacts, such as user adoption, knowledge sharing, user benefits and customer satisfaction. Different kinds of learning tools and channels can be explored. MTR, Hong Kong’s metro train system, uses its own video channel called M-Tube for training, and has produced a hilarious but effective video of KM practitioners in a rap song about the organization’s KM features.
