Good knowledge management efforts often flounder because senior champions move on. I am thinking about what sorts of positions and structures can provide effective, high level continuity–or the appearance of high level continuity–during periods of disruption.
I hear colleagues talk about the importance of scope decisions in a blog. Some create separate blogs–or separate twitter identities–for different topics. Others write about a wide range of professional and personal interests in the same forum. I assume these decisions involve several elements:
- What is my identity as a writer, communicator or blogger?
- What do [I think] others want to hear?
- What am I trying to achieve?
I hope to connect with thoughtful people who share some of my interests. Although other parts of this site focus on my professional life, I intend to share eclectic interests and questions in my posts. As a systems thinker, it would be hypocritical to have separate blogs for–let’s say–knowledge management, complexity thinking, leadership and work with boundaries.\
