Personal Knowledge Management

Personal Knowledge Management

If organisations stopped spending so much time on processes and technology solutions and uncovered the latent potential in employees then real value could be harnessed through Personal Knowledge Management.

Social Media Explained (with the aid of a donut!)

Social Media Explained (with the aid of a donut!)

The Business Of Collaboration

The Business Of Collaboration

Some Background The last few years can be described as the age of social business and collaboration. The demands and expectations of today’s knowledge workers have been shaped by the plethora of social networks and social media tools. Communicating and sharing information has never been easier.  Staying connected with news and status updates from friends, family, or at work is real-time and no longer constrained to an office PC.  This has coincided with the business realisation that a greater degree…
