As I have mentioned in the previous blog, people is a key thing for KM.  So, after knowing this, what can I do?  though we also know that people is a unique element for every company and we cannot have the "best" way to manage people, we still need to have the correct approach in viewing this issue.

I would like to mention the stimulation I experienced in MOC to discuss about KM here.

in the simulation, i was a shop floor worker.  I was very quiet during the simulation though I have so much thoughts running in my mind.  this was because there were so much dicussion going on and people were just throwing out their points, their solutions and their views without digesting the others'.  in this kind of scenerio, KM is difficult.  I mean when people are so eager to express their opinions is really a challenge for KM.  as an "educated shop floor worker" at that moment, i knew the importance to share my knowledge to the team.  however, i still failed to do so.  So, back to the reality, just letting people understand the importance of KM is not enough, encourage people to share is more effective.  it is an issue that every leader should pay attention to.  actually, when i was silent in the simulation, i was waiting for the leader to organize the chaos so that i could have an appropriate time for contributing.  Did i do the correct thing?

anyway~ just wanna relate my experience in MOC to KM in order to express that effective leadership is a driver for KM.=]

  1. Hi Violet, I have same feeling with you when I played role as a shop floor worker in the simulation. I am agreed with your point that in that kind of scenario, KM is difficult to achieve. I think everyone totally forgot using KM, everyone think about making more profits as much as they can in order to win that game.
    In fact, understand the KM is not enough. The manager of director who is top level of the organization should manage and encourage people share the knowledge, create a knowledge atmosphere, leading people share knowledge is much more important. Basically, knowledge management is based on people and focus on people. So how to encourage people share knowledge in the organization is the responsibility and challenge for leader.
