RealKM asked the
actKM Forum the following question:
If someone came to you and said “I don’t know the first thing about what KM is, but I want to learn more about it – where should I start?”, what is the one resource (website, article or book) you would point them to?
Bill Kaplan from
Working Knowledge suggested The Knowledge Edge series. Bill began the series in 2009, as a sequence of short but specific vignettes on his evolving perspective of KM. Over time he will add additional perspectives.
The Knowledge Edge series includes:
KM Concept, Strategy, and Practice
Fundamentals of Knowledge Enabled Organization
One View of Knowledge
High Performing Knowledge Enabled Organizations
CoPs (Part 1) [Communities of Practice]
CoPs (Part 2) [Communities of Practice]
Knowledge at the Point of Execution
Developing Knowledge Workers Through Senior Management Leadership
Understanding KM Certification
