International Society of Knowledge Organization

Promoting the theory and practice of organizing knowledge and information

In the knowledge economy, knowledge is currency – right? So why should knowledge workers share their hard-won wealth? Knowledge is also seen as power. Who would want to emasculate themselves through careless generosity?

The organizational landscape is littered with the carcasses of failed knowledge sharing initiatives. Many impressive initiatives have failed to break through the barriers they’ve encountered; lots of “solutions” have foundered on the rocks of resistance. During this session we’ll explore the features of failure, and learn about the simple measures that help ensure success. The practical, interactive, element of the session will demonstrate the power we each have to create a culture of trust.
