Organising Around Knowledge

I’m doing a spotlight session at the SLA conference in San Diego next month on “knowledge organisation”. This story from the New Republic - the most inspiring KM story I’ve ever heard – reminded me that it’s often not enough to organise our knowledge – we also have to be prepared to organise around our knowledge – to preserve it and to benefit from it. It’s one thing to build a taxonomy, it’s quite another thing to organise activities and business processes so that different business units can benefit from a common information and knowledge resource.

The group that was behind this extraordinary effort has started a non-profit called T160K – go visit and see how you can help.
