392801 - Follow up ref SDS 76 0000, ref SDS 73 0000.
392803 - This record shows two distinct branches of KM roughly summarized as
392804 - people and tools. Both are needed to foster a culture of knowledge.
392805 - John explains KM as "people" skills, having earlier cautioned against
392806 - "mechanized knowledge." This could encompass TQM, leadership and
392807 - project management. KM, also, recognizes that tools can help, e.g., a
392808 - car carries more groceries, a plow plants more crops, a backhoe builds
392809 - more bridges. The multiplication table helps understand quantities
392810 - for planting and building. Similarly, alphabet technology renders
392811 - human thinking in a form that helps leaders construct, convey and
392812 - preserve understanding. Since engineers have not yet created tools to
392813 - replicate human cognition that converts information into "knowledge,"
392814 - some people conclude tools cannot support KM, so KM is defined as
392815 - "socialization" that does not require tools. This avoids the burden
392816 - to balance natural "people" skills, with technology that augments
392817 - intelligence, which is a relief, because learning technology skills
392818 - that change every 5 minutes is impossible. Engineers reason that,
392819 - since technology is helpful, KM can only be accomplished by tools that
392820 - "think." This provides cover to ignore "social" skills, by saying
392821 - that when tools can "think," then KM will be used. Both camps
392822 - continue to rely on IT, which causes bumbling, stress, conflict and
392823 - loss due to information overload. SDS strives for a solution that
392824 - extends alphabet technology by combining time and information
392825 - management to deliver computer aided thinking. This seems to improve
392826 - social skills to think, remember and communicate, and so leverages the
392827 - power of leadership in a faster paced world.

393433 - John's letter today, appears to ignore the opportunity for
393434 - technology to aid leadership, cited in POIMS. ref OF 1 G5RF
393435 - This conflicts with the record of leaders using telephones,
393436 - automobiles and broadcasting to enhance communication and
393437 - mobility. On the other hand, many in the technology camp,
393438 - seem to ignore the fact that tools alone are not enough. The

393440 - and two parts people, ref SDS 83 5E5F, confirming discussion

393446 - Socialization Endemic to Life Yields Critical Knowledge
393448 - Business and government are forms of community. Therefore,
393449 - socialization skills are critical to success, as in any
393450 - community setting. This has always been so, and will always
393451 - be true based on human biology, which is immutable over long
393452 - time spans. Most social skills are acquired in childhood over
393453 - many years observing and interacting with adults, going back
393454 - to the beginning of time.
393456 - ..
393457 - Some people are better at socialization than others, and
393458 - doubtless all of us can learn better socialization skills.
393459 - Sociology is a field of study that focuses on socialization,
393460 - but likely does not impart stronger "people" skills, which
393461 - John seems to have in mind from the context of his letter
393462 - today.

393469 - How are fantastic social contacts from using KM different from
393470 - social contacts created by Thucydides, Plato, Disraeli,
393471 - Clinton, et al, who do not use KM, but are effective applying
393472 - Dale Carnegie's ideas in his book "How to Win Friends and
393473 - Influence People"? Or, are we saying that people have been
393474 - doing KM from the beginning of time, but didn't know it, or
393475 - call it that?
393477 - How does Knowledge Management improve social contacts
393478 - better than other methods? Or, are we saying that all
393479 - socialization is KM? If so, why is a new phrase needed?
393480 - Why not stick with "socialization," "people skills,"
393481 - "leadership"? These are perfectly good terms that
393482 - everybody understands.
393484 - ..
393485 - Does an address book, or a Contact software program, aid KM
393486 - because these tools help manage social contacts? See below,
393487 - on idea that KM should add value to existing practice.

393491 - Convincing speech, dialog, conversation are powerful first
393492 - impression capabilities that aid socialization for getting
393493 - people to say "yes," and indeed dominate human character and
393494 - community, distinct from all other forms of life, as explained
393495 - in POIMS. ref OF 1 23H5
393497 - ..
393498 - Conversation directly employs human capacities for seeing,
393499 - hearing, speaking, and feeling that create and receive
393500 - information. The human mind processes this information by
393501 - connecting it into chronologies of cause and effect relative
393502 - to objectives, beginning with basic biological needs for
393503 - sustaining life. This conversion produces "knowledge," mostly
393504 - on automatic pilot in the subconscious mind. see POIMS
393505 - ref OF 1 0561
393507 - ..
393508 - Accordingly, there is no intent, nor threat to reduce talking
393509 - and listening as important tasks. These are essential for
393510 - coordination and collaboration.
393512 - ..
393513 - "Meaning drift" and other weaknesses of oral communication
393514 - that generates and receives information through direct sensory
393515 - perception using eyes, ears, taste, feel, etc., and relying on
393516 - the involuntary subconscious process of producing our
393517 - "knowledge," are set out in the record on 991108. ref SDS 23
393518 - 4505
393520 - ..
393521 - These inherent weaknesses of people skills have been addressed
393522 - over the millennia by developing various tools. Thus, it is
393523 - folly to ignore the proposition that leadership can be, and is
393524 - in fact, supported by tools of some sort everyday.

491005 - The tradition of oratory and conversation reached its zenith
491006 - about 400 BC with Socretes, sophists, poets and others, when a
491007 - breakthrough technology, called the "alphabet," began a new
491008 - tradition of literacy. This new tradition compliments the
491009 - power of dialog, and eventually improved the character of
491010 - human thought by spawning the "alphabetic mind," which has
491011 - dominated western culture for 2,000 years, by empowering
491012 - people to structure, craft, shape and preserve human thought
491013 - in an external objective form, so that it can be improved over
491014 - days, weeks, years and generations. see review on 991108.

491021 - a letter submitted on 001122, ref SDS 76 UO6G, reflecting a
491022 - long standing debate.
491024 - ..
491025 - Since the time of Plato, the relative merits of orality and
491026 - literacy have been debated. see Phaedrus cited on 991108,
491027 - ref SDS 23 2320, and reviewed in detail on 991209. ref SDS 24
491028 - 3416 On 991010 Gutenberg was credited for contributing the

491030 - inventing enabling technology that magnified the power of
491031 - literacy across cultures and time. ref SDS 21 2548
491033 - ..
491034 - Was it a mistake to honor Gutenberg for inventing the printing
491035 - press, in that someone else with stronger "people" skills
491036 - helped civilization in greater measure? For example on 001227
491037 - a professional psychologist, Sheldon Brahms, noted that people
491038 - think differently today from 500 years ago, ref SDS 84 CK9J,
491039 - because alphabet technology provides a method to consciously
491040 - construct "knowledge" by capturing information, and connecting
491041 - it over time, through a practice of literacy. This closely
491042 - aligns with Havelock's view, reported on 991108. ref SDS 23
491043 - 0844
491045 - ..
491046 - Thus, information is produced by talking and listening;
491047 - knowledge is produced by thinking that aligns and organizes
491048 - information into chronologies of cause and effect. More time
491049 - spent on information, means less time creating knowledge. see
491050 - POIMS on trade-off between thinking and doing. ref OF 1 2049
491051 - Literacy, also, produces information that is guided by memory
491052 - of talking and listening. This makes memory critical to human
491053 - reasoning, reported on 900319. ref SDS 1 0702
491055 - ..
491056 - Literacy can, also, aid the thinking process that connects
491057 - cause and effect to produce knowledge, but there is not a
491058 - tradition to do this because it takes extra time, relative to
491059 - relying on human memory, ref DIP 1 006P, as set out in a
491060 - letter to the DKR team on 000920. ref SDS 52 GQ5J
491062 - ..
491063 - Professional writers do some of this on a broad scale, for
491064 - example, in news reports, the Bible, and history books.
491066 - ..
491067 - One aim of KM might be, then, to speed up and enhance the
491068 - traditional process of literacy that tests the accuracy of
491069 - impressions from conversation and daily events, so that the
491070 - benefits of professional broad scale critical thinking can be
491071 - applied to daily work.

530606 - called out above, ref SDS 0 EK3I, using emotional appeals for
530607 - customers to say "yes" to improve productivity, earnings and

530611 - After WWII ended, Hughes Tool Company was accused of using
530612 - women and liquor to influence procurement officers and work
530613 - inspectors to gain favorable treatment on government projects.

530616 - Howard Hughes admitted during Congressional hearings that he
530617 - agreed to use these methods in order develop fantastic social
530618 - networking for constructive dialog on a common vision to build
530619 - faster and cheaper planes, and other war materiel. He pointed
530620 - out that he personally didn't want to bother with fantastic
530621 - social networking. He wanted to build better products that
530622 - save money and lives, in the case of a war setting.
530624 - [On 010218 cited Hughes example. ref SDS 91 NH5R
530626 - ..
530627 - Hughes learned that people responsible for improving earnings,
530628 - and finding better methods that reduce time and cost, don't
530629 - like to investigate the merits and make judgements about
530630 - advantages of changing existing methods that are comfortable.
530631 - We like to use methods we already "know," because our common
530632 - sense and experience says that is faster and easier. We
530633 - prefer to go by what everybody else is doing, what has been
530634 - written up in the WSJ, HBR, or what we heard at a seminar.
530635 - Our religious tradition urges common sense decisions based on
530636 - credibility. If God says "A," lets go with it, because that
530637 - is easier than analysing the merits of a new method, that
530638 - conflicts with our common sense, per analysis of "faith," on
530639 - 921205. ref SDS 3 8493 When people are busy, as in a war,
530640 - there is less time to think about new ideas. More recently,
530641 - Andy Grove noted in his book, reviewed on 980307, that helping
530642 - people improve work to save time and improve earnings is like
530643 - "walking through the valley of death." ref SDS 17 0502 So, in
530644 - order to help the country, Hughes testified, it was necessary
530645 - to use fantastic social networking that encourages people to
530646 - change what they are doing whether they want to or not.
530648 - [On 011010 analysis of salesmanship shows saving time and

821044 - Knowledge Conversion, Correlation of KM to IT??
821045 - What is "Knowledge" Different from Information??
821047 - John mentions "knowledge creation and conversion" which
821048 - implies a process that converts something, possibly knowledge
821049 - itself, into something else. ref DRT 1 745L

821060 - On 001118 Mark McElroy, another member of KMCI, offered that
821061 - Knowledge is "validated information." ref SDS 73 OV5G
821063 - ..
821064 - So, this is one view of knowledge creation, which John
821065 - indicates today is a process that occurs somehow, some
821066 - where. ref DRT 1 745L

A21402 - Over the Horizon Thinking Requires a New Idea
A21404 - John shares occasional frustration that KM thought leaders are
A21405 - often operating over the horizon. However, that concern is
A21406 - assuaged by the fact that many tenets of KM have gone mainstream
A21407 - and are significant planks in the KM zeitgeist. Active KM
A21408 - practitioners often have a short memory, but should be quite
A21409 - satisfied that key concepts like shared vision, systems thinking,
A21410 - mental models and related KM doctrine, are now, in fact,
A21411 - mainstream. ref DRT 1 T96J

A21414 - On 000908 Doug's DKR team was described as "over the horizon"
A21415 - visionaries, whose vision does not include a customer. ref SDS 51
A21416 - 0001
A21418 - ..
A21419 - "Over the horizon" sounds like ideas that might help meet new
A21420 - challenges of emerging conditions, characterized as "new
A21421 - realities," see Drucker, reviewed on 931130, ref SDS 5 1855, and
A21422 - Grove reviewed on 980307. ref SDS 17 1209
A21424 - ..
A21425 - Over the horizon could, also, mean a new way to accomplish key
A21426 - tasks, for example an engine to power the lawn mower, instead of
A21427 - pushing it; or, a vacuum cleaner, instead of a broom and dust pan.
A21429 - ..
A21430 - In what sense does "fantastic social networking" reflect a new
A21431 - idea to meet new conditions, or improve past practice? How can
A21432 - that be said to be "operating over the horizon"?
A21434 - ..
A21435 - Name a "KM thought leader" and one new idea that improves
A21436 - socialization and dialog, since the time of the pyramids, when
A21437 - shared vision, systems thinking and mental models were used?
A21439 - ..
A21440 - It is useful to define KM as "socialization," but how useful is
A21441 - such a definition? Why not stick with socialization? That is a
A21442 - perfectly acceptable idea, per above. ref SDS 0 B8TW
A21444 - ..
A21445 - A new term, like "KM," should add value, add a new dimension or
A21446 - capability that improves past practice.
A21448 - ..
A21449 - To the extent KM can be defined as amplifying the power of
A21450 - literacy by integrating time and information management to improve
A21451 - alphabet technology, which many argue has been the engine of
A21452 - civilization, what thought leader has given this idea a moments
A21453 - thought?
A21455 - ..
A21456 - "KM zeitgeist" tends to impart an existing body of knowledge that
A21457 - has established "planks, possibly significant. For example,
A21458 - project management has the idea of time and cost control. General
A21459 - management has ideas of accountability, organization,
A21460 - communication, traceability to original sources and continual
A21461 - learning. see review of PMBOK on 950721. ref SDS 11 6N5J

A21464 - What are significant "planks" of KM, where are they taught and/or
A21465 - published, and who is practicing them, per above??
A21467 - ..
A21468 - Who is an active KM practitioner? How is their work different
A21469 - from someone who does not practice KM?
A21471 - For example, people often show up for meetings and say
A21472 - whatever pops into their head, as they do with phone calls and
A21473 - email. Nobody is prepared, as shown in the study reported on
A21474 - 960205. ref SDS 13 5902
A21476 - ..
A21477 - Does a KM practitioner prepare for meetings, calls and email
A21478 - by reviewing the record, as explained on 950327? ref SDS 8
A21479 - 8822 How does anyone do this without getting the record
A21480 - prepared, i.e., KM might entail preparing a record, so people
A21481 - can "be prepared"?
A21483 - ..
A21484 - Another example is when people finish one meeting, they run to
A21485 - the next one, or the next call or email.
A21487 - ..
A21488 - Does a KM practitioner follow Andy Grove's recommendation to
A21489 - prepare copious notes after the meeting and get clarifications
A21490 - to avoid the ambiguity of mental maps, so mistakes are not
A21491 - spread at the next meeting, call or email? see review on
A21492 - 980307. ref SDS 17 3668
A21494 - ..
A21495 - Might a KM practitioner go beyond Grove's ideas, say "look
A21496 - over the horizon," as it were, and add organization, alignment
A21497 - and summary to convert conventional information from daily
A21498 - activity into useful "intelligence," as called out in POIMS.
A21499 - ref OF 1 0561
A21501 - ..
A21502 - Could a KM practitioner provide feedback to attendees to get
A21503 - feedback from attendees that strengthens accuracy of the

A21505 - others with "intelligence" showing actions items and
A21506 - alignment?
A21508 - ..
A21509 - Would this reduce meaning drift by building and maintaining
A21510 - shared meaning of common events. Could this save time and

Information Overload from IT Dysfunctional, John Maloney
Dysfunctional KM Caused by Email, Meetings, Cell Phones, John Maloney
A50501 - ..
A50502 - Information Overload from IT is Dysfunctional, But No Solution
A50504 - John says email, cell phones, meetings, etc., are contributing
A50505 - factors of dysfunctional knowledge management. While their
A50506 - advantages of connectivity cannot be argued, the lack of emphasis
A50507 - on context in the typical use of these applied media creates a
A50508 - 'sustainable disadvantage.' Hence, a frontier of KM is the
A50509 - execution of effective knowledge creation within the boundaries of
A50510 - advancing productivity and expanding innovation. ref DRT 1 008I
A50512 - Not sure this section has any substance.
A50514 - ..
A50515 - Email, cell phones, meetings support general "connectivity,"
A50516 - but quickly degrade to entropy from information overload,
A50517 - because general connections do not produce useful knowledge.
A50518 - see the record on 970707, ref SDS 15 0108,

A50521 - For example, on 001025 Doug Engelbart asked contributors on
A50522 - the DKR project to connect comments on the OHS Launch Plan to
A50523 - specific parts of the plan, and to other references.
A50524 - ref SDS 59 00VU So far, no one has done this, except for the
A50525 - letter to Doug that was generated using SDS. ref DIP 2 0001
A50526 - On 001126 Eugene Kim urged compliance; yet, Eugene provided no
A50527 - connections to anything. ref SDS 78 XV8L Another contributor
A50528 - reported that present technology does not support making
A50529 - useful connections. ref SDS 78 B15I
A50531 - ..
A50532 - The formulation "...contributing factor of dysfunctional
A50533 - knowledge management," implies KM is being performed by
A50534 - someone. Who?
A50536 - ..
A50537 - One way to cast the issue is how can instruments that provide
A50538 - effective support for IT, be rendered productive, rather than
A50539 - cause Information overload, which is destructive? The answer
A50540 - might be using technology for adding "intelligence" to
A50541 - information that produces useful knowledge by extending IT to
A50542 - KM, per above. ref SDS 0 VS4J
