Organisations and Networked Work

Now that the video is ready, I can add this post on a second thread from the KM4Dev2009 EduHuddle, which is related to networked ways of working. I didn't participate in the breakout discussion on this, but what really resonated with me from that group's report-back was the idea that from an organisational perspective it is not only unnecessary but unsustainable to think in terms of having all the knowledge-related capacities relevant to your work within your own organisation. It is becoming… Continue

Some thoughts generated by the KM4Dev2009 EduHuddle

Getting to this a bit late, but maybe it's still of interest....a couple of threads I found interesting from the EduHuddle (attended Day 1 only) relate to capacity building, the first more around individuals and the second around organisations and networks. In a small breakout group discussion, we heard about Jocelyne Kompaore's work in Burkina Faso, where she works on providing training using a powerful model for building up training materials. This involves working with knowledge-holders… Continue

WASHuddle agenda

In the end we were only a small group. Too bad Shamila from Wateraid and two WSMP colleagues from Ghana didn't manage to join the event.

Here our on-site amended agenda

Graphic Facilitation Open Space

All right. This year's KM4Dev workshop took place. Yes, it was in Brussels (which I rather liked, despite of the cold and the rain) - fun, and stylish city. And yes, the workshop was incredible - so many interested and confusiastic people joining efforts to learn together. A real organism. There's nothing like the real thing.

On the third day, we did an Open Space. As part of that, Nancy, Binetou, Annette, Lilia, myself and a few others spontaneously huddled together to… Continue

#KM4Dev: blogging session

Pretty unexpectedly I ended up doing a session on blogging at #KM4Dev workshop. It was part of the social reporting afternoon and was supposed to provide the participants with opportunities to get hands-on experiences with various tools and actually do social reporting of the group work done beforehand.

It didn't really work that way: we drifted away from blogging as social reporting tool (I'm not surprised, but that's a topic for another post) and couldn't practice as some other… Continue

Reporting out from the gender huddle...

Who is outspoken? Who is willing to learn?

Find these people, and it will be easier to do more gender-aware knowledge sharing. This is what I learnt from listening to Roselinie Murota, who works in Zimbabwe for SAFIRE, the Southern Alliance for Indigenous Resources, talking to Hannah. That's them talking on the right, and me writing it up below...

SAFIRE works on three broad themes... benefit driven… Continue

Social reporting using video

After some very - but very basic - basic editing, I'm just now uploading my first social reporting in the form of a video reportage of the 'get to know your KM4Dev community buddies' bingo 2009! Need to find a more serious, but hopefully shareware video editing tool, to make the video's more appealing to watch. Go to the video directly: click here.

Exploring Social Reporting from KM4Dev 2009

This afternoon KM4Dev community members attending this year's KM4Dev workshop in Brussels will be trying to share a few gems from the various discussions that have been going on in different sessions.

One of the goals - aside from the obvious one of sharing with the broader community of interested people who cannot be physcially at the meeting - is to put people with a lot of experience using social media with those with only a bit of experience to help build capacity as we all… Continue

Some thoughts on #KM4Dev

[cross-posted from my weblog]

It’s nice to be a newcomer – you can go around, say that you are new and don’t know much and ask stupid questions. This is what I have been doing at KM4Dev meeting so far.

It’s always nice and strange to discover a network of people who do work and think on issues close to those of my own, but were pretty invisible from my perspective until now.… Continue
