Partying and knowledge transfer!

Just reminded of an example quoted by Graeme (I think) during PIUSS..

Some organization, i think Rolls Royce (some high class luxury car manufacturer)  chose 5 of there employees , gave them a huge sum of money each (dont remember the exact sum) and asked them to spend lavishly.

What these employees would do is spend all the money partying and in expensive lounges, where a sample of their target customers would be, gather information and send it back to their centre.

Tacit knowledge transfer!

All that amount spent is nothing but an investment to gather tacit knowledge is'nt it? Crazzy ideas to collect tacit knowledge!

An anti–knowledge base view!

Something just flashed my mind (Think am being to critical these days!)

We are all in the view, and so does the literature suggests that knowledge is a valuable asset. Right knowledge available at the right time is what must be aimed through IT knowledge bases as well.

On the contrary, can we say that there could be cases, where extensive and elaborate knowledge bases (not only IT based) may be used as readymade solutions and could halt creative thinking!? Say,an organizationa has an excellent knowledge base, with effective collection, storage and dissemination, in such a case, could it be that a decision that'd be available from a previous experience cause a bias in the mind of the decision maker (even though no two problems would generally be exactly the same), and hence lead to ineffective decision making?

Maybe this is a part of knowledge 'Management'! But how can a trade-off be achieved!?

Eager to listen to your views..

facebook: a Knowledge Management System

U guys may be thinking that am gone crazy, which I myself agree, I am seeing KM in facebook now! But I just cant help being facinated by KM!

I was going thorugh some literature regarding KM, and for a break, I log in facebook. The next thing that comes to my mind is, this is knowledge base too! and that too, quite an effective one (ofcourse besides all the crap that we share)!

How do I think it is so appropriate?

For instance, a friend of mine (fellow civil engineer) shares, he is at a site for tunneling right now in Srinagar. He has had this opportunity to visit the site as a part of his job. Though, this information is of no use for me today, but, in case I am in such a kind of situation, or have a project relating this, there it is, somewhere in the back of my mind, that he may know something about this. Maybe I can contact. Maybe, the day I contact, he doesnt have much to share, but on the other hand, maybe he knows somebody who has!
