Knowledge Transfer: When to Use What Method

Transferring knowledge from one part of the organization to another is at the heart of knowledge management. But a general call to encourage more knowledge sharing or transfer is not very effective because there are many ways to transfer knowledge. You need to be sure that you are investing in the best method for what you want to accomplish. There are two questions that influence the choice of method.  

  1. What is the transfer problem you are trying to solve? For…

Think Knowledge Innovation Instead Of Knowledge Transfer

     The African Rice Center* has been very successful in transferring knowledge about how to process rice in a way that makes it more nutritious and has less breakage. In a study conducted in Benin, 92% of the 600 women farmers took up a new process for parboiling rice. That is an amazing percentage for the transfer of knowledge. But the real story is the remarkable way they accomplished the transfer.

     I should note that in Benin parboiling rice is a major economic activity and…

Why Visualize Data?

If a picture is worth thousand words, then what about a neat data visualization? Displaying information in graphics to generate better insights is not a new phenomenon, but, with the advent of technology and increased access to data, it has become far more prominent. Once restricted to analysis of economics, finance, and science, data visualization has emerged as an industry of its own.

There are now multiple tools to visualize…

I have. And it didn’t turn out quite how I expected.

Like every time you switch on your computer there is a world of noise about what’s happening ‘out there’, but at the end of the day you (and possibly your team) are trying to reach your goals unsupported?

Over 40 internationally focused nonprofits and social enterprises, from across Oregon in the USA, got together to combat this challenge through collaborating – and I want to help you do the same.

What happened:

Enquiries on a short Knowledge Management Course in Europe or Asia

Dear colleagues, I am looking a short course on Knowledge Management and Organisational learning in Europe, Asia or Australia that myself and team could attend. Anything between a week to three weeks will be good for us. If there are practical attachment in addition to the course, that will be fantastic.
