We can re-build it …

If you are a person of a certain age, you’ll remember the 6 million dollar man.

Goodness I loved that programme when I was a kid.

I found myself saying “We must rebuild it” the other day (meaning the whole of an organisation’s KM strategy) and suddenly this intro flashed into my mind.

Sometimes KM is like being those surgeons.

We need to rebuild our service and product delivery using our KM knowledge so that it is “better, stronger, faster”.

It’s not a single thing that needs to be done to improve things. It isn’t *just* a database or *just* an online learning platform. Our KM strategy needs a balance of projects to improve creativity and learning, collection and use/re-use of knowledge, and connections between people.

Just like the bionic man’s bionic eye may be great, but it is considerably better alongside his bionic arm and legs. The combination is better than the sum of the parts.

What programme from your childhood is like your KM strategy?

Kings and queens of use/reuse? Congratulations, you’re the Wombles!
