Variation on information interpretation . . . How we differentiate ourselves from the others?
There was an era when having internet in your company was a competitive advantage by itself... However in our days internet is a necessity or else a must. . . . Think that in Kano¢s model of needs . .... .
So how you can gain competitive advantage, in manipulating and exploiting the infinite sources of information? I think it is the process itself and not the IT support. . . .In KM terms it is the soft aspect (people, culture, structure) rather the hard aspect of KM. This is why in my eyes organizations should focus more on people than in IT when it comes to KM. . . . .
MBE learnt as how to search for information. Instead of providing us with lectures and offering us the knowledge, out tutors gave us the driving forces supported as and let us search for knowledge by ourselves. ,. . . . I think this is a success that can highly be attributed to MBE culture. . . .
We tomorrow will find easier to search for info than other students of traditional courses. . Again MBE is different and made us different as well……….. Also we have learnt how to filter this info. . . Paul today said our problem is that we have a lot of information available and easy accessible………………. Yap we can find anything any time we wish……. Then the thing that will differentiate us from the rest is the way we translate the same information into knowledge ……..
This differentiation some of us will call it competitive advantage. I prefer to call it variation necessary for improving the whole system….. :P
