On The Train, Feb 14, 2007
On the way home I got to think about KM and Learning, and realized how little one can separate the two. If we look from the point of view of outcomes Learning would try to enhance performance that ultimately translate to better decision making and innovation. At the same time what KM is trying to bring to organizations are also better decision making and innovation. If we look at the process, although the initial discovery would be a bit different, the actual process of learning and KM would almost be the same if not intertwined with each other. The mere process of learning is also knowledge creation and acquisition to KM. Teaching is knowledge sharing, transfer and also a form of mitigation for knowledge lost. Coaching and mentoring are also knowledge transfer, sharing and mitigation for knowledge lost. I could go on and on.
