In networks, cooperation trumps collaboration | Harold Jarche
"In networks, cooperation trumps collaboration. Collaboration happens around some kind of plan or structure, while cooperation presumes the freedom of individuals to join and participate."

Stumbling and Mumbling: Organizational failure
"Here’s a theory. It’s to do with organizational brittleness. Here are some background principles:
- The death rate for firms generally is high. Of the UK’s biggest employers in 1907, only three are still independent, stock market-listed companies today.
- Companies embody specific vintages of organizational capital. Their expertise depends upon the state of technology when they were formed. It’s rare for a firm to transform itself from one activity to a completely different one

Harold Jarche » Experience-Performance-Reflection
"First, knowledge is the result of information (e.g. learning content) AND experience. Knowledge is directly influenced by one’s own experience. Therefore there is no such thing as “knowledge transfer“. Second, performance is taking action on knowledge. This is what is evident to others in the workplace. They observe what we do. It’s not what we know that is important to others, but what we do with it. In the workplace, what we do with knowledge is usually in a social context. This influences the third key point, that reflection of one’s performance is an important part of the learning process and this is often in a social context as well. "

Emerald | Journal of Knowledge Management | The unacknowledged parentage of knowledge management
"Purpose – This paper aims to argue that the current malaise and fragmentation within knowledge management are at least partially caused by a lack of awareness of its own historical roots.

Design/methodology/approach – A comprehensive literature review shows that very explicit knowledge management concepts and practices were in circulation 50 years ago and that current knowledge management literature has very little historical depth."

Excess capacity is a good thing - Knowledge Jolt with Jack
My take on information overload and general "personal effectiveness" has always been to start with the individual and then look out to the system.

A pace layering view helps to sort out a spectrum of possibilities, from looking after awareness needs (which faster, more fragmented, more context-bound tools provide) through to socialisation tools (thanks Olivier) which strengthen inter-personal connections, trust-warrants for where is good to pay attention to, and knowledge flows

Matching activities supported by a weblog to different stages of idea development — Mathemagenic
In the study of my logging practices (Chapter 3) I looked at my weblog from two perspectives: focusing on its uses as a personal knowledge base (using insights from the research on personal information management to identify those) and the ways it supports the process of growing ideas over time (awareness and articulation, sense-making and turning them into a product). The table below matches those, summarising how different stages of idea development are supported by the activities around the weblog content: low-threshold creation of entries

Transform your structure - Knowledge Jolt with Jack
# Make the move from hierarchies to networks once and for all.
# Make the cultural shift from silos and knowledge hoarding to openness and knowledge sharing.
# Move from slow, random learning to a systemized approach for fast learning.
# Become fixated on systemic improvements rather than point solutions.
# Move from saying, "That'll never work here," to "Let's find a way to make it work."

Knowledge Management Research
This position paper addresses the way knowledge is conceptualised in knowledge management (KM) literature and practice. Using the work of Lakoff and Johnson on metaphors it will show how people use metaphors to think and talk about knowledge. In KM literature at least 22 different metaphors for knowledge are used. Further research shows that these metaphors are primarily Western metaphors while in Eastern philosophy many other metaphors for knowledge are used.
