3. Most Active Group had to be Tom Condon‘s Knowledge Management in Government. I accidentally set the fire by saying “Knowledge management is change management, isn’t it?” and sharing a link to Michael Murray‘s provocative blog post titled “But I Don’t Wanna Change.” That’s really all it takes to embroil that super smart group in a great exchange.
2. Quote of the Week honors are also found in that conversation as Paul Villano, a Knowledge Management Officer for the Army Chaplaincy Center, said:
Please ignore John Bordeaux and that man behind the curtain (Google “The WIzard of Oz Effect and the Future Emerald City” to know what that refers to). My job title is Knowledge Management Officer so it must be my job…and only mine…::Insert mad laughter:: Mine! Mine! All Mine! Okay, John’s right, the stinker. But don’t tell my bosses. Or at least encourage them to keep paying me the same money or more even if they change my job title. :o) Seriously, the coaching and caring of community through sharing that I consider to be Knowledge Management…must not be treated in the same academic sense as something (which I consider to be foreign and nauseating) like mathematics.
1. Finally, Rockstar(s) of the Week has to be shared three ways by Candace Riddle, Cynde Jackson Clarke and Brandon Jubar for their really helpful and quick responses to “Rub Virtual Elbows with Acquisition Experts! But Who?” They planted some seeds for a sweet new initiative we’re launching soon on GovLoop…stay tuned!
