A different perspective on tacit vs explicit knowledge
by , 2016-08-29

I was relaxing over the weekend listening to one of my favourite podcasts* which featured an interview with neuroscientist Dean Burnett, author of Idiot Brain: What Your Brain is Really Up To. The book is about how our brains work, or fails to work! The interview was mildly entertaining, until Dr. Burnett mentioned "fluid intelligence" and "crystallised intelligence".  The Cattell-Horn theory of fluid and crystallised intelligence says that intelligence is made up of different abilities that interact and work together to produce overall individual intelligence, with fluid intelligence being "…the ability to perceive relationships independent of previous specific practice or instruction concerning those relationships." and crystallised intelligence is "the knowledge that comes from prior learning and past experiences, . . . based upon facts and rooted in experiences." Does this sound familiar? It looks very much like the KM idea of tacit and explicit knowledge!

Let's Talk
by , 2016-08-08

At the talk held by Dorothy Tsui on Appreciative Inquiry held on the 9th July, one of the ideas presented was the difference between a "deficit based problem solving" approach and a "strength-based appreciative enquiry". That is to say intead of looking at where thing are going wrong and solving those problems, we look beyond that to what we are going right and build on that. The led me to think that the world, or at least the Devloped World, is becoming less about action based survival problem solving to more about social interaction.

Leadership is a state of mind
by , 2016-07-26

Anyone Can Be A Leader.jpgI recently finished reading Work Rules! by Lazlo Bock. It is about the work culture in Google and is a highly interesting read. I would definitely recommend it for your summer reading list. Each chapter ends with a helpful list of bullet points that summarise the content (great for those with little time to read or a short attention span). The bullets in the first chapter reminded me of a this Gaping Void comic (one of my favourite business comics, I highly recommend subscribing to their blog). The bullets in Work Rules! were:

  • Now act like one

 

An appreciation of Appreciative Inquiry
by , 2016-07-11

fish.jpgLast Saturday afternoon KMP hosted an event on Appreciative Inquiry (AI) with Dorothy Tsui as our guest speaker. We started with an "interview" of someone we did not know to discover their best KM moments. It was a wonderful reminder (especially for me) to listen to others without a) formulating my response, and b) try to solve the problem. Co-creation begins with a shared mental model and that can best be developed by listening to one another. Ideas can then be developed with others rather than for others.

Seminar by Professor Bratianu
by , 2016-07-04

Model.jpgAs mentioned last time, I will go into more detail of the seminar given by Professor Constantin Bratianu at the PolyU on Knowledge Dynamics. There were two things that struck me at the seminar. The first is that knowledge is not an "object" but a "mental representation and interpretation of the world we are living in. It is a cognitive approximation of the real world" - hence the soup metaphor we talked about before. Knowledge is our internal model for understanding our world. The other thing was the split of knowledge into "rational", emotional" and "spiritual" knowledge.
