About a year ago, Dr. Michael Koenig wrote in these pages that unlike many business “fads,” knowledge management didn’t fall into the typical 10-year pattern of boom and bust, with four or five years of explosive growth, followed by a slightly longer period of almost equally dramatic decline. His conclusion: KM is here to stay. Posted March 01, 2007

About 11 years ago, a group of us were starting to ask ourselves whether all this "information management stuff" might have a greater purpose than merely to store information in a file server somewhere. That maybe—just maybe—information could be applied to the type of work and to the level of decision-making taking place in business at such a famously accelerated pace. And in providing that information to the right person at the right time, the promise of a truly knowledge-based economy could be realized. In the 10 years since ImagingWorld became KMWorld magazine, we've tried to address the discipline (practice? theory? religion?) of knowledge management from each of its well-known constituent components—people, process, technology.

Blogs began springing up more than a decade ago as a way for individuals to maintain online diaries, voice their opinions on politics and vent about consumer products. They proliferated rapidly, and thousands became millions. Tainted perhaps by the image of bloggers as gossipmongers, blogs were not taken seriously as enterprise applications until fairly recently.

Any decision is only as good as the information behind it. Companies know that accurate information is their most important asset, capable of shedding vital insight onto current customers, prospects, competitors, partners and suppliers. However, such information is also volatile, highly perishable, often scarce and costly. Professionals who develop client relationships spend a significant amount of their time obtaining, reviewing and evaluating information. Aside from the enormous cost of ad hoc research conducted by “information amateurs,” having the best-possible business intelligence available is crucial to a company’s competitive advantage. . . .

Have you ever heard this?: “I could have told you that would never fly…” “How come we didn’t know about that…?” “We’ve looked at that before…?” Have you thought this?: “How the heck did that happen…?” “If only I knew then what I know now…” “This might be very useful to us, but who should I tell…?” “I wonder who would know…?” “Where could I find…?” Operating in a competitive world plagued with information overload and attention deficit, these are, unfortunately, typical experiences. How many times do individuals and companies reinvent the wheel because information was not effectively captured and shared? How many times do we find out after brutal surprises that it was a simple failure to connect the dots, all of which were there? . . . Posted October 01, 2005
