Knowledge is out there and blogging is one of the best way to capture there. Record what’s in your mind and whats in your brain. Writing it and sharing it is a start and it will not take long to have abundance of knowledge. Now we need to start managing it as well. And think how we are going to manage this knowledge efficiently to be able to use it effectively.
But what should be the next step as we know how to capture the knowledge very well now. Time is to connect all the dots and extract the information and set the future trend through it. Data analysis is a known field and helps in setting the trends and base the decision on that. But we need to step ahead and start using techniques to change the future and start predicting future rather than adhering to the predicted future. As we not always want to follow but rather lead. And that we can do only if we predict the future way in advance with the help of available knowledge and use strategic ways to change it.
Every organization has their knowledge base and then they their systems also sometimes talk to other systems. Centralization of the control of all these systems is being done in silos at times due to various reasons like: security, privacy etc. I am giving some thoughts in this direction and will produce some posts regarding the knowledge management soon. As I am working in the same field so it helps with the previous experience. But I am looking more from the perspective of using all the available options to manage the knowledge to produce useful outcome. And how it can make every days life more easier as at the end of the day its people we need to manage and deal with. Knowledge is important but people are the key.
Feel free to discuss any thing regarding Knowledge Management (products, trend etc). I will be happy to answer any query or discuss related topics.
