KIN is a membership based community linking business practitioners from industry leading organisations, world-class researchers and some of the world's leading experts in knowledge management and innovation. KIN is linked to the IKON group at Warwick Business School and is focussed on the strategic, organisational and behavioural aspects of knowledge management and innovation.
KIN members are world and industry leading organisations including Oracle (Technology), Orange (Telecoms), Schlumberger (Oil & Gas), Mars (Food & Beverage), PwC (Professional Services), Baker & McKenzie (Legal) and many more. We only involve one member from each industry to promote open knowledge sharing and collaboration free from competitors and vendors. We are currently looking to involve organisations from Financial Services, Pharmaceuticals, Media & Publishing, Engineering, Automotive and Bio-Technology.
Collaboration and knowledge sharing takes place through our Special Interest Groups (SIG's): Communities of Practice, Virtual Teams, Learning from Practice, Social Network Analysis, Knowledge Retention and Gaining Buy-In to KM. each SIG has a Facilitator and an Associate who is a world leading expert in the field e.g. Richard McDermott (CoP's), Rob Cross (SNA).
Video: BLU Lesson 5: How I discovered blogging by David Gurteen
One of six BLU lessons on how I discovered blogging and its applicability to knowledge management by David Gurteen.
In April 2005, BLU, the UK's Business Link University which no longer exists hired Fifty Lessons to produce a series of video stories for them to which I (David Gurteen) was invited to contribute. This is one of those stories.
