Real Life Example

I am involved in Knowledge Management activity and have found that KM is something that doesn’t require processes and pressure to build a good corporate knowledgebase. Infact, I found that it is better if the management has least interference in KM activity is better for organization. Ultimately, we are dealing with people, in Information Technology, and they will give their knowledge just because the process says so or the management wants or culture of company demands…well then forget it.

I did some research and found out several tools to be used for KM but during this I discovered that tool is going to play a small role. It is the Tacit knowledge that has to be captured, which comes through Trust, Transparency and self motivation. I interacted with all the people who were suppose to provide the knowledge and most of them were willing to contribute but once I left the place, it was business as usual. I realized that the things are not very productive, although I got better response from bunch of guys, who made me felt that they are contributing just b’coz I was telling them to do so, thats the reason!!

I really don’t understand the solution to be brought up to get things moving….

Anatomy of a Blog

Now that you know what blogs are and have started reading them, you’ll notice some com- mon elements. Let’s take a quick look at eight of the most common elements of a blog:

1. Title and Tag line

The more obvious your blog’s title, the more quickly readers can figure out your blog’s topic. Sure, a clever title is nice, but if you want to get the right kind of tar-geted traffic to your blog, be obvious. I’d rather see a great blog with a boring, obvious title (and fantastic content) than a clever title that no one can figure out. Also know that you don’t have to have the word “blog” in the title of your blog. Include a tag line under the title to help add a little more clarity and focus to the topic of your blog. When you make your blog available to search engines, remember that your title and tag line should reflect important key words. What terms, queries, and solutions might your customers be looking for that relate to your products and services?

2. Posts

A blog’s entries are called posts. Typically, the most recent posts are displayed on the front page, in re- verse chronological order. As new posts are added, the older ones roll off the front page into the archives. Posts can consist of quick write-ups of helpful links you’ve found online, opinion pieces, long essays, short thoughts—anything goes. There’s no wrong way to write a post, except to be sterile and boring. If I want to be boring, I can go write a press release! Continue reading

What is a Blog

A blog, short for Web log, is often described as an online diary. The most recent entries (called posts) appear on the home page of the blog with links to archives of older posts. Archives are organized by date and can be categorized by topic. Often, each post will have a form for readers to add their own comments and to give opinions or reactions to the post content.  
The real genius in blogs shows itself in how theyare written. Continue reading
