Nick Milton, Knoco Stories, shares a couple new blog posts with us today that focus on knowledge management (KM), of course. Do not miss:

  • The Chief Devil's Advocate role in KM - Group think is were there is no one challenging the status quo. But we've been there before when all but one within a group agrees on a topic. He might even say he is playing the devil's advocate but that isn't really who he is. If he is successful, he's a change maker. If he isn't, he's considered a troublemaker. Don't pooh pooh this person (and you know who he/she is). After all he represents what could become innovation, invention, etc.
  • KM at Mercer - Communities of Practice can be very challenging to set up and to get those who may (or may not) belong engaged. View this video where "Sitrion CEO Daniel Kraft talks with Jennifer Scopaz and Kathy Davidson about how social is improving collaboration." For more on Mercer's use of KM as a strategy, see Sitrion's case study: Mercer: Driving Employee Engagement & Innovation.
