Thought for the day - Three God's gifts with Ram Charan

"What he does is hard to describe. But the most powerful CEOs love it enough to keep him on the road 24/7 and make him the most influential consultant alive." Fortune's David Whitford reports.
God's Gifts:

  • "... this human being has a talent to figure out what the consumer really wants"
  • "... he has the will and the talent to find - no matter where it is! - the right technology that will deliver what they want."
  • "... he has the talent to create demand at the right time"

    Librarians and Knowledge Management

    GLIS 692 Assignment 1, Sept. 25, 2003

    Identification. Verification. Acquisition. Organization. Dissemination. These are the traditional services provided by librarians since the emergence of the field. The unspoken object of these actions has always been printed material: books, journals, newspapers, and so on. With the creation of audio and video recordings, as well as microfiche, librarians quickly expanded their discipline to include non-printed material, but the process for discovery, cataloging, and distributing library materials remained relatively unchanged. In the last few years librarians have again had to expand their area of expertise to include digital information, including areas of the World Wide Web. And they are being asked to redefine themselves again. This time to include the vaguely defined realm of knowledge itself...

    PM and KM Culture

    Eclectic Bill talks about a Project Management Case Study that he read on How Culture Affects Knowledge Transfer and quotes some important reasons why there is little knowledge sharing:
    -Masculine values - compete and dominate rather than reflect and build relationships
    -Perception of time as scarce
    -No concern about the past and limited concern about the future
    -Relationships based on respect and no unrequested interference
    -Private ownership of projects
    -Project managers don't need help

    PS. For ages people struggle to understand how the work culture of PM and KM can be or should be integrated. And the above is an excellent telltale.
