DIKW from an OD prespective

On August 16th the HKKMS hosted John Hovell, Head of Organisational Development  and KM for BAE Systems for a talk. He gave an interesting OD (Organisational Development) perspective of the dreaded DIKW triangle. He called the elements, diverstity, inclusion, collaboration (pity it doesn't start with a k) and, finally, wisdom. This makes a lot of sense, knowledge comes from collaboration with a diverse set of ideas, but in an inclusion mindset. Although I would have subsitutued innovation at the peak rather than wisdom!
