Read Time:49 Second

Attended an excellent workshop on Wednesday 6th December on “Knowledge Management roles and capabilities”, and 7th December on “People – the hard side of Knowledge Management”. Both events organised by the Knowledge & Innovation Network (KIN), which once again brought together an effective blend of KM practitioners, academics and ‘experts’. Richard McDermott and Tom Young provided some good insight into roles in CoPs and roles in KM organisations on Wednesday. On Thursday we grappled with cognitive neuroscience (or how the brain works and its relationship to KM) – a thought provoking (no pun intended) presentation from Dr Itiel Dror, and still can’t believe I missed the gorilla! (Sorry – won’t mean much to anyone who hasn’t seen the presentation). With additional input from Dr Richard McDermott, Professor Harry Scarborough (on ‘Organisation design for knowledge sharing’ and Sally Vanson (Cultural change and KM). Grateful thanks to the KIN people for organising the event, and the Christmas dinner on the 6th (with silly hats and games – great fun!).

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
