Laws of knowledge management

  • Seven spiritual laws of successful knowledge management, by Marcus Speh Birkenkrahe [1. The Law of Unity; 2. The Law of Giving; 3. The Law of Cause and Effect; 4. The Law of Least Effort; 5. The Law of Intention and Desire; 6. The Law of Detachment; 7. The Law of Purpose in Life]

  • Are There Laws of Knowledge Management? by Stephen Denning, Michel Pommier and Lesley Shneier. [1. Knowledge sharing is essential to economic survival; 2. Communities of practice are the heart and soul of knowledge sharing; 3. Virtual community members also need physical interactions; 4. Passion is the driving force behind communities of practice; 5. Communities enrich organizations and personal lives; 6. Knowledge sharing has inside-out and outside-in dynamic.
    These six “laws” of knowledge management have three corollaries which are found across a very large number of organizations: Knowledge sharing is at some point confused with IT; Middle-management resists; Vibrant communities of practice attract new talents]

  • Five Laws of KM, by
    Inspired by Dr.S.R.Ranganathan!

    Knowledge is for use;
    Every bit of knowledge its user;
    Every user his/her bit of knowledge;
    Users time is precious;
    Knowledge and knowledge centres are growing organisms.

Do Knowledge Managers do what they preach - Share Knowledge?

by vijeesh papulli
"Well a dumb question you might say. But then if you were to take a deeper look at this question you may not find it all that stupid. Well I am aware of a lot of Knowledge Managers who share their experiences to the larger world. Recently I have come across a lot of Knowledge Managers in India who I don't find in any forums or on social collaboration sites. Yes of course India is relatively a late entrant to the KM Universe but then let me tell you though it is late it surely is making up for the lost time. Organizations have a shorter learning curve here and are quickly catching up with organizations globally. There are some active forums like the KM-forums from Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore and Mumbai (recently) but really not much participation from the Practitioners. Of course the participation has been more theoretical than experience sharing." continue reading
