KRIMinal Activities Afoot

We’ve been doing a lot of work recently with Marita Keenan on the interface between knowledge management, information management and records management. We call it KRIM for short : )

There are all sorts of important connections that KM, IM and RM purists miss if they don’t talk to each other: for example when buying document management systems, installing portals, designing taxonomies, changing their information management or content management policies, designing knowledge management policies around sharing. In one organisation I know, the KM team was well on their way towards finishing a new KM policy focused on promoting sharing, when they discovered that another department had just got a new information security policy approved by the CEO – directly contradicting some central elements of the KM policy.

Now I note that APQC is picking up the theme with a new benchmarking study on “Knowledge and Records Management: Navigating Compliance in the Face of e-Discovery” (thanks Ron).

We’re in the early stages of planning a Forum on this topic together with Marita (in Perth) and John O’Brien and Robert Tornack (in Hong Kong) later in the year. Drop me a line if you’re interested.
