KM tool —> blog
One thing I like blogging is that we can translate our thoughts into words that can be shared. This is the immediate thought that came to my mind when I read the comment from my friend. She said that we shared similar feeling towards the MOC simulation and I did not realize it until I read the comment. This is the power of blogging. And this is also the power of this knowledge management tool. let me divide the usage of this tool into stages of KM.
1st stage: knowledge generation and recording
Writing blogs helps me to covert my tacit knowledge into words that can be shared. These thoughts can be recorded for later use.
2nd stage: knowledge sharing
This is a media for us to search for knowledge and exchange ideas. Discussion are stimulated and continued to generate more knowledge.
3rd stage: applying knowledge
last but not least, apply knowledge in appropriate situations. every situation is unique and it may worth to be recorded as a new knowledge.
Then, the cycle repeats.
KM tools can have their best effects when people are engaged. Like the stimulus of writing this blog, I can feel I am understood by my friend only when she tell me through her comments. sometimes, i did inspire by the blogs from the others but there is lack of motives to start the discussion. i guess it might be the problem of the cultural thing. but things cant be changed only when actions are taken... right?!
