using postcards to Sudan for a post event evaluation

I attended the inaugural Knowledge Management Capacity Development in Africa event held in Khartoum back in Janury.

As part of the follow up to that event the conference chair and organiser Dr Gada Kadoda decided to use a postcard as a way of capturing some of the delegates perceptions. It showed a picture of some of the delegates on the steps of Freedom Hall Khartoum and an invitation on the reverse to submit comments and reflections.

What follows is her candid account of how…

Key questions to ask when putting together a Theory of Change for Research Uptake (Part 1 of 2)

It’s amazing how the process of answering simple questions can help you uncover so much complexity.

Unfortunately, when developing a Theory of Change (ToC) we don’t have the choice, like children, to leave those things alone we don’t like the look of. Developing a ToC gives us the opportunity to address problems, complexity, and opportunities that exist…

Widening the social circle and trust building

As detailed in Chapter 5 of my free eBook titled “Knowledge Transfer for the Military Leader” one of the major impediments to knowledge transfer is lack of trust combined with a tendency on the part of many individuals toward maintaining too small a social circle.

Trust building is very important in what we do. Why? The more trust a person has in another individual the smoother and more spontaneous the flow off knowledge and experience between them will be over time. People tend to…

The future of Science and Technology may depend on our paradigm of Consciousness

Something that most likely will influence the development of Knowledge Management (KM) as well as Science and Technology in the (near) future is the concept of Consciousness as the attribute of Knowledge which is concerned with  2 (two) choices of paradigm.  The first paradigm is “The (smart)  Universe or  Nature Knowledge is the center of…

Dear KM4Dev friends (with apologies for cross posting!)

Would be interested in examples of where ‘mash ups’ – bringing data and information together from multiple sources – has led to tasty results.  And also lessons on how to avoid an indigestible mush (the photo doesn’t look that promising!)
