KM Method Cards

Ok, they’re finally here! One of the reasons why I’ve been keeping my head down over the past few weeks has been our KM Method Cards project.

For the past few years now, we’ve been growing a set of concise summary cards covering KM approaches (eg CoPs, Information Literacy, KM Champions), methods (eg AARs, Pre-Mortems, Anecdote Circles) and tools (eg Wikis, Taxonomies, Competency Frameworks). We’ve used them in a variety of activities with our clients, often in helping them to visualise and plan how they are going to operationalise their KM strategies. Our clients have used them to provide quick reference guides to their KM activists and champions, and also to identify training and competency development needs. They’ve been so successful, that we finally decided to bite the bullet and produce a commercial version of them. And now they are here!

The graphic below gives you a sneak peek, and the Guide to Contents image below can be clicked to download the pdf of the overview guide. You can buy the KM Method Cards securely online using a credit card courtesy of Plimus, or by contacting us directly at (makes more sense for buyers in Singapore, if you want to save the postage costs by picking them up at our office).

Enjoy! Buy! (If you like the artwork, visit Joseph’s portfolio blog!)

A great resource and excellent initiative. Removes a lot of the mystic behind ‘KM’ by explaining the practical techniques in nice bite-sized chunks. A must-have for any serious KM practitioners. Will be linking from my blog!

Well done Patrick and Co. I recieved my pack today and I am very impressed with the product and can only imagine the amount of work that has gone into compiling and making sense of all these topics.

I am sitting down with my team this week to brainstorm the opportuinities to use them (Iam already to try out a few).

I can see these being handy for practitioners and customers of practitioners alike.

Think I might have to oerder a couple more packs.

Well done.
