May was a busy month. Apart from helping establish then launch a real estate and mortgage business (Bees Homes) I was in Lisboa for Social Now and London for KM Legal UK.
I attended both in the expectation of learning more about the onrush of Artificial Intelligence and its implications for the Knowledge Management profession.
Specifically, I wanted to see how the encouragingly styled Talent and Knowledge…

As part of my ongoing research project I am looking for case studies that look into the construction of peace practices from a local knowledge and capacity perspective. The scholarly debates remain very conceptual, for which I am broadening my scope in search for hands-on experiences usually underlook in the academic literature. If any of you has recommendations or insights from your countries or fields of work (preferrably in Latin America) please refer… Continue

In trial-mode for my new methodology! So far I see a great learning curve from both facilitator and participants.

Today we had a fascinating Open Space conference with a great turn out of members from the KM4Dev community.
As you can see, many different topics were discussed and there was also much room for discussions between these breakout sessions.
One of the discussions during the first session was on impacts and indicators - an especially interesting question considering the SDGs were designed without any real consideration of indicators. It… Continue

It’s a proven fact that 40% of sales people cannot understand a customer’s pain. When a customer comes with a problem, Sales rep panic and end up giving the first option that comes to their mind, which can prove to be a disaster if their answer addresses the problem which the customer did not even have.

Growing up, one of the chores I associated with holidays was the sending of postcards to family and friends. With no social media or smart phones, we kept in touch via letters and cards. Yet the postcard is still highly effective as it is a tactile, non-technological and versatile object.

To prompt future stories
Often at big events (especially the annual corporate 'show and tell') delegates… Continue

A great customer support is what all of us look for in whichever part of the world we are: returning from the airport where the staff treats you well or in business favoring the supplier who not only meets its commitments but takes risks with us, going above and beyond to be there with you.
These same ideologies and benefits of excellent customer service and support apply to a complex enterprise as well. It is not just the mere exchange of goods and services but the perception we… Continue
