Gray2K : Boomer Retirement = Company Knowledge Void

Dr. Dan: This is what we need “Gray2K” – a clever tagline, something catchy (like Y2K, and with that level of interest).

From Klever (and if you haven’t already discovered Klever, take a look):


“Boomer Retirement = Company Knowledge Void
In the next five years, the so-called Silver Tsunami, or Gray2K, will sweep through every company as baby boomers start retiring en masse, taking with them a collective 3.3 billion years of experience that companies are already finding difficult to regain.  That knowledge is gone forever and the clock is ticking as the workplace collectively scrambles to capture the information before it retires with the employee.”

Collaboration Is as Easy as Knowing Your ABC’s

We wonder why employee engagement levels remain so anemic in today’s organizations.There is hope, however, and perhaps that comes in the form of adding to the definition of collaboration….

Source: www.huffingtonpost.com

Yes, we’ve all seen these kind of things before but I don’t recall seeing one addressing collaboration.  And since collaboration is good and is an activity that results in knowledge sharing (as well as possibly sharing an alcoholic beverage as two along the way) I thought that I’d pass it along.  It just begs “to be” something that you’ll hang on your bulletin board.

Dr. Dan’s Knowledge Management Quotes – Peter Drucker on Confusing Data with Knowledge

Dr. Dan:  Which is exactly why a focus upon Big Data isn’t the same as having a Knowledge Management Strategy.

“The computer is merely a tool in the process…To put it in editorial terms, knowing how a typewriter works does not make you a writer. Now that knowledge is taking the place of capital as the driving force in organizations worldwide, it is all too easy to confuse data with knowledge and information technology with information.”

Peter Drucker

As we learn, this model assumes, we steadily ascend in our knowledge and skills, leaving more elementary approaches behind.


Dr. Dan Kirsch‘s insight:

Best sound bite: “But in important ways, the staircase metaphor fails to capture the way cognitive change actually works. Research shows that children (and adults!) employ a variety of strategies to solve problems, not only the one “typical” of their stage of development.”

Why dialogue is so important for Knowledge Management

See on Scoop.itDr. Dan’s Knowledge Management


thanks! @LOMBARDI_GLORIA Knowledge transfer is a #social process: you have to engage with other human beings http://t.co/NjTLzxOMFb #esn #km


Dr. Dan Kirsch‘s insight:

Why is dialogue so important in Knowledge Management? 

“The majority of knowledge within any organization is held in people’s heads. Indeed some would claim that ALL the knowledge is in people’s heads, and that anything which is written down becomes information, rather than knowledge.”

Dr. Dan Kirsch‘s insight:

True that.

Can’t force collaboration – Knowledge Jolt with Jack

See on Scoop.itDr. Dan’s Knowledge Management


Collaboration is important to buisness, but it isn’t the only thing. And it can’t be forced by merely rearranging the deck chairs. Peter Vander Auwera gives me incentive to think about these things.


Dr. Dan Kirsch‘s insight:

Best sound bite:  “Commit to learning from one another as a regular part of how we do things.  No, not a “database”, but people.  Sure a database or SocBiz tools can provide pointers to people, but only the people can give you a feel for the experience and watch-outs.  They are the ones that can also ask interesting questions.”
