Knowledge management and blogs (KBAM)
While doing work on knowledge management, I found out that a lot of techniques can be used to get the knowledge from the people in the organization. One of the ways is to use blogs. Blogs can be used to capture people's ideas, give them a medium to share their knowledge and get them into the habit of thinking and learning. Effective use of blogs can help the organization come up with new and innovative ideas which could solve its existing problems and improve the way it does business. The culture plays a very important role for effective use of blogs. The culture should be such that it promotes the sharing of knowledge, remove inhibitions that people have in sharing ideas and values their ideas.
This is very similar to the blogs we have in MBE. They have got us in the habit of thinking and learning from our daily reflections and they have helped us to share our knowledge with others. One of my colleagues told me that he is going to use the system of blogs in his organization, which is a very good idea. From the benefits that I have seen from using blogs myself, I am thinking that it'll be a good idea to use blogs in my organization. The only problem that I have is that a lot of people in my organization are not familiar with using computers. The options that I have is to train them or develop something manual, similar to blogs.
