Similar to the InnoChat that we held on Twitter to discuss highlights of #DSCC11, we’ll be holding a KMersChat on Tuesday, Nov 15 at 12 noon Eastern time to discuss Collaborative Innovation and Knowledge Management.
Information on the chat is available on the KMers.org site.
The discussion takes place on Twitter and is open to all, so please join in! Simply use the hashtag #KMers on Nov. 15 12-1pm Eastern time.
Here is the framing post for our Nov. 15 discussion:
One of the interesting studies I’ve seen recently was done by Baseline in 2010, which found that companies who link KM and collaboration initiatives have much greater success rates in reaching their KM goals.
Some of the questions that I see us discussing on #KMersChat on Nov. 15 are:
Q1: What role does KM play in collaborative innovation?
Q2: Are there different KM needs at different points of the innovation cycle (e.g., R&D, product launch, early adoption, growth, maintenance, obsolescence)?
Q3: Which internal and external groups have you seen collaborate (e.g., engineering, manufacturing, marketing, sales, legal, suppliers, customers)?
Q4: What are some ways to include ideas from customers or suppliers in KM & innovation efforts?
