There is so much that has been learned about knowledge management, and getting people to share what they know with others, over the years especially the importance of KM being about so much more than the technology, with the need for organizational change management given that it’s a change to the traditional way of working.

These research-based statements from Dave Snowden are super-helpful for KM success:

  1. Knowledge can only be volunteered it cannot be conscripted
  2. We only know what we know when we need to know it
  3. In the context of real need few people will withhold their knowledge
  4. Everything is fragmented
  5. Tolerated failure imprints learning better than success
  6. The way we know things is not the way we report we know things
  7. We always know more than we can say, and we will always say more than we can write down.
