Mathemagenic: Public weblogs for (internal) knowledge management
Efimova describes why public employee blogs are good for internal (to the company) knowledge management. In the second post on this page, she talks about blogs as knowledge traces...
In her two posts today she makes some fabulous points:
- Public blogs are more findable and reach greater audiences for feedback
- "Knowledge flows are powered by questions" -- you won't get an answer if you don't ask the question and you don't know who to ask...
- How do you motivate employees if the questions seem to be outside of the existing workflows?
She also suggests ways to point out external employee blogs in internal newsletters and in other materials. (done!)
Definitely some food for thought here. Thank goodness the European summer is over :)
