http://www.durantlaw.info/blog/1 — KM musings

I ran into Graham Durant-Law’s blog somewhat serendipitously…we’ve traded comments on his posting on KM as euphemism for management.  He rightly rails against an emerging tendency in KM circle to:

exclusively privilege the people component then what distinguishes the discipline from human resource management or even management in general? At the moment I can’t help but feel knowledge management is akin to alchemy!  

Per my earlier postings, I’m always suspicious of a single-threaded approach to a complex problem.  Such an approach is just too brittle and failure-prone.  In KM, I think it is inexcusable.  If one is involved in KM, than one should appreciate that information comes in different forms, requires different and sometimes formal processes and tools, etc.
