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 http://www.knowledgeboard.com/item/3048/23/5/3

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?

December 4, 2009 Leave a comment

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?
