Why share knowledge in International Development? KS-Workshop #2

To meet information needs

Static info

Producers of info/ knowledge

Dynamic info

convert K from tacit to explicit form

Adaptable to meet unique demand

monitor usage and impact

Some notes on how

Inentives (cake!)

Break the ice first

How K is "brought to the surface"

Create places for both formal and informal exchange (over coffee or by watercooler)

Don't forget DEMAND!

Benefits of sharing

Create trust

Increase impact

Capture knowledge before it leaves organization

Learn from each others "lessons learned" = Peer learning

Get needed information when needed

Get information in

Get information out

Barriers to sharing

Knowledge is power!

silos of knowledge

lack of support

organizational culture

limited resources for face-to-face meetings in decentralised organizations

lack of shared purpose or commitment

people have different preferred styles/modes of KS

dissonance between KS practices and support (in either direction)

When doing KS, remember..

what is the purpose

understand the consumers (demand)

Understand goals and context

Provide clear strategic values for all involved

Incentives

reciprocity - by giving you will get what you need

recognition, professional status

Create Alliances

makes work interesting and fun

increased awareness of what others are doing
