VISALIA, California: What if the Internet had been around in the classic rock era, and guitar players could reach out to say, Jimi Hendrix or Duane Allman for tips on how to be better players? Or, jazz fans


Dr. Dan Kirsch‘s insight:

And the connection to Knowledge Management?  It was this particular sound bite that got my attention: “What the Internet has done is sped everything up. Something that took me 10 years to get to a certain level, now I have students who will get there in about 18 months.”

The article discusses how students can now use the internet and associated tools to directly access musicians, and how that then reduces the learning curve — or from a KM perspective, the rate of knowledge transfer and the ability to capture and utilize knowledge.

Dr. Dan Kirsch‘s insight:

Best sound bite:  “The main enemy of receptivity is prior knowledge. As Epictetus said, “you cannot teach someone something they think they already know”. This means that if you give people problems they know how to solve, they will not look for additional knowledge, and they will not think outside the box.”

Dr. Dan’s Knowledge Management Quotes – Tom Davenport on KM Strategy


Dr. Dan:  Absent a Knowledge Management strategy, an organization is simply doing stuff.  Doing stuff doesn’t mean that you’re successfully implementing KM.  Failing to successfully implement KM means that you’re not utilizing organizational knowledge to gain competitive advantage.  Failing to gain competitive advantage is bad.  Don’t be bad.  Determine your KM strategy.


Dr. Dan Kirsch‘s insight:

“When an organization decides what principles it agrees upon with respect to knowledge management it can then create detailed approaches and plans based upon these principles.”

(Tom Davenport)
