The power of Knowledge.. I think I understood what critical thinking in our works is

I am almost ready to have the first KBAM complete file so that I can send the outline for feed forward. . . . Reflecting back to what happened I realized that knowledge is powerful. The point is that I am planning to add a little bit knowledge management in my project thus I spend before KBAM more than 100 hours for studying the soft perspective of KM in SMEs (organization culture, structure, people, etc…….). Consequently I used some of this material in my PMA…………

However when I looked back in the PMA as well as in the project the common parts is totally different………. I used the same references but the outcome was different….. In my eyes that is amazing and clearly reveals the power of knowledge. . . . . It also reminded me what Deming has said in SoPK “Information is not Knowledge, knowledge requires theory”. Again this guy was right.. . . :P

Also I think that this is what the tutors expect from us when they say this mysterious critical thinking and writing. It is nothing more or nothing less than taking the info in the journals books or conference papers and adding your theory to create knowledge in respect to the problem you are solving. . . . .

At the end of the day PMAs Projects Universities and I may say everything is Knowledge Management………………………………

  2. Yes I agree with Deming on that information is not equal to knowledge.. Information is essentially when raw data is contexualised, categorised, condensed etc. Essentially information is found “in answers to questions that begin with such words as who, what, where, when, and how many” (Ackoff 1999).
    Knowledge is more than that, I would say it encompasses- contexual information, framed experience and values, expert insights and intuitions. In essence is is more closely linked to doing, and implies knowhow and understanding…
