An interesting new development courtesy of the ODPM – the TALK web site (Transferring Across Local Knowledge). The blurb says “thiswill go beyond key products, manuals and reports, to investigate andpublicise local knowledge and know-how to help practitioners acceleratetheir change programmes.web site”. See: TALK
It was announced at the Local eGov Expo on Wednesday (5 April).
I’m wondering how this will differ from the IDEA Knowledge web site IDeA ? Is it another case of re-inventing wheels in the public sector (this particular band waggon has more wheels than I’m able to count!)? Still, knowledge management is important and we just can’t have enough of these web sites (not sure irony comes across very well in blogs?!)
About Post Author
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!
