It's Monday again and the work week is off and running. We are already in the homestretch of February. Can you believe it? Time seems to be picking up speed in these continuing days of COVID-19 lockdown. Let's hope it has something to do with news that the end of the worst of the pandemic is in sight. This weekend I read news to the effect that new infections were slowing, herd immunity might be building in hard-hit areas, and that vaccinations are proving very effective. Let's hope this is the beginning of the virus' end and not just a false sense of security. Speaking of reading and digesting new information and news, today's featured post focuses on the ways that we acquire the new knowledge that colors our decision-making processes. It's a very interesting read!
Also, be sure to check out our Events section below. Dewey B. Strategic blogger and industry luminary Jean O'Grady has some speaking engagements coming up that you might want to not miss! Conference season is starting early this year.
Lucky Number 7
We work with knowledge and information every day. It's our bread and butter. We filter it and curate it. We apply quality controls and cascade it strategically. We elevate what meets our needs, question what challenges our assertions, mold it to answer tough questions, and reject it when it lacks any redeeming qualities in our given use cases. But have you ever stopped to take a high-level look at where it all comes from? Nick Milton today maps out the ways in which we acquire the knowledge that fuels our success. As a KM expert, he knows that "knowledge acquisition is a core component of Knowledge Management". He makes his case and demonstrates the key knowledge flows in: 7 routes to knowledge acquisition.
