Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (Could Local Government win an award in the future?)

December 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Having just read an article from Knowledge Board for the 2009 winners for the MAKE awards

It got me thinking.  Could we in Local Government aspire to this as well?

When looking at the key elements, why not

  • Creating an enterprise knowledge-driven culture
  • Developing knowledge workers through senior management leadership
  • Innovation (R&D, creativity and new product/solution/service design and delivery)
  • Maximising enterprise intellectual capital
  • Creating an enterprise collaborative knowledge sharing environment
  • Creating a learning organisation
  • Delivering value based on customer/stakeholder knowledge
  • Transforming enterprise knowledge into shareholder/stakeholder value

In places we have all of these, its just sharing it out amongst as all.

Do I have too much faith in Local Government, am I just a dreamer or am I trying to bite of more than I can chew? Answers’ below please.

These are the award winner from this year

  • BP
  • British Broadcasting Corporation
  • Ericsson
  • IKEA
  • Mondragon Group
  • Nokia
  • Royal Dutch Shell
  • SAP
  • Siemens
  • Uria Menendez

Could the F Theory help you ask a great question?

This seems to be a question that always crops up.  Mainly round the idea of creating an active forum.

And my response has always been

  • Think about the question
  • Make it simple and succinct.
  • Try and reduce the jargon and give enough of a background to the issue.

And last week I was shown the F theory which is used to design content for web pages and it seems to fit the structure of how I would ask a question.

From General

As a reader you do not wanta a large chunk of text.

So by following the F theory and keeping it simple, short and bullet pointing will this help

So my question is, how do you go about asking a good question?
