Taking stock of KM strategies - https://km4meu.wordpress.com/2015/02/08/km-strategy_taking-stock/

A lot of people on KM4Dev and outside are wondering how (and if) to develop a KM strategy.

I faced the same issues a while back, so I started pulling together resources that I found interesting on this topic and turned them into a blog post. 

Sorry for the self-promotion here but the point is this could be very useful to many KM4Devers: …

All tips and tricks to get blogging: The art of blogging, taking stock

Blogging has been one of the umost important activities in my life as knowledge worker over the past five to six years, both for personal knowledge management (to process my thoughts, curate information and analyse my work and surrounding) as for wider knowledge sharing with other individuals and institutions.

I would encourage anyone to start blogging if they haven't done so yet, and to see for themselves. However it takes some time and tips can help, so I compiled this overview of…

What is the role of positive deviants in knowledge work of development organisations?

Hi everyone,

Following Nancy/Gauri's discussion and the recent Lucie/Charles discussion on 'moving away from knowledge products to knowledge sharing processes', here is a topic that is little explored but could have great potential in helping all of us develop an enabling environment for change, learning, critical reflection, sharing etc. This third episode in the new discussion series means that I will be collecting answers to the question for the next two weeks and then will provide…

KM4Dev needs you: Please take the #Learning &#Monitoring baseline survey: http://ow.ly/bbAGi

For some of us, KM4Dev has been an incredible source of inspiration, learning and action, whether individual or collective. Yet we have very little evidence of this.

As part of the KM4Dev action plan 2012-2013, we have a Learning and Monitoring (L&M) plan that aims at exploring what KM4Dev really provides its members and where it can improve.

This baseline survey is looking at various learning areas that matter a lot to understand how KM4Dev brings value. It…
