KM Questions

Q: I would like to know your insights regarding practical examples on how KM saved or made a huge impact on saving TIME and COST.

A: Here are three suggestions:

  1. Read KM books such as those highlighted each week in this blog. For example, Part II: Cost Analysis in the book featured above includes:
  • Chapter 9: Knowledge Return on Investment by Timothy W. Powell
  • Chapter 10: Time Saved: Not a Politic Justification for Knowledge Management by Michael E. D. Koenig
  • Chapter 23: Knowledge Management at Caterpillar by Reed Stuedemann, whose work on justifying communities at Caterpillar will be helpful.

2. Post your question to one or more of the leading online KM discussion forums. Denham Grey blogged on this topic. See KM on-line discourse.

3. Attend a KM conference, build a personal network of contacts, and ask them for examples from their experience. Examples of US conferences were provided in a previous blog entry.
