I have listed links to the back issues below. Enjoy!
- The Gurteen Perspective: Avoiding jargon
Jargon is one of the major barriers to the adoption of KM – it is a sure fire way of antagonising both senior management and the people in the organisation who you wish to buy-in to KM. It’s okay to use the jargon among ourselves, but when talking to others who know little about KM we should do our best to avoid it. We should explain concepts in simple language and always provide an example that ties the concept in to a real business problem or challenge within the organisation. January 2007
- The Gurteen perspective: David - Get a Life!
I discovered weblogs back in 2002 when a colleague suggested I take a look at them. At first I stumbled across the mass of personal weblogs that held little interest for me but then I found a single weblog that changed my life. November/December 2006
- The Gurteen perspective: Personally Speaking
A while back, a friend told me that she had forwarded my monthly knowledge letter to a number of colleagues and that several had commented that it was strange that I used the word ‘I’ a lot. October 2006
- The Gurteen perspective: Taking Responsibility
What is a Knowledge Worker? “Knowledge workers are those people who have taken responsibility for their work lives. They continually strive to understand the world about them and modify their work practices and behaviours to better meet their personal and organisational objectives. No one tells them what to do. They do not take ‘no’ for an answer. They are self motivated.” August/September 2006
- The Gurteen perspective: On perspective
We all see things in different ways. This is determined by our culture, education, life experiences and much more. No one sees the world through the same lens. And no one sees the world through the same lens day to day. Depending on the context we see things differently. We see the world relative to whom we are and where we stand. July 2006
- Thought Leader: Stop apologising for knowledge management! KM is not going away. Indeed, it is becoming more important than ever. The term is an established one. Books, courses, conferences, workshops and university modules and degrees abound on the subject. So can I suggest we use the name with pride? June 2006
