The Gurteen Knowledge Community Group on LinkedIn has grown to almost 4,000 members and is one of the more active of the KM LinkedIn groups. There are a number of interesting threads but if you are interested in why various people got involved in Knowledge Management then take a look at Does anyone mind sharing WHY they went into Knowledge Management?

I'll be at KM UK this week in London and look forward to seeing a few of you there.

I'll be running a Knowledge Cafe at the end the first day. Given that all the research says rewards are ineffective, if not downright harmful, I will be asking if we should still be using rewards to motivate knowledge sharing.

I will be setting the context for the KCafe using a re-mixed YouTube video that I have created that includes video clips from Alfie Kohn, Dan Pink and a scene from the American version of "The Office". If you have not taken a look at the YouTube video editor yet, it is a powerful tool and exceptionally easy to use. I can see myself using it a lot more in the future.

I have only ever trigged a Knowledge Cafe with a video once or twice in the past so this is a bit of an experiment. I will release the video after the event.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
