Tara did an excellent job of skewing my thoughts in a totaly laterall manner - yeah its like getting pulled by the short hairs and dragged across the floor type of syndrome.
Both thoughts and counters thoughts is resonating well with me on this round, especially the "voice of the community" -
If a marketing paradigm is slightly shifted --as in a pinko style thoughts, then I am seeing that the concept of "VoC" maturing. It's like a canopy opening over the the communites of issues, practices and learning. Is this the unknown parameter, that we researched , --debated, disected and tried to bring about thought convergence on the Xerox- Gurteen Knowledge letter of 2003 ?
(SideBar : take time to go thru the powerpoint KM manifesto - yes its short-I promise :)-.
However, for these emergent processess to actually mature, then a "briefing of radicals" needs to take place and then only will understanding on "The difficulties many organizations have had with change management depends in large part on an inadequate recognition of interdependencies among technology, practice, and strategy. Recognizing the critical role that interdependencies play in affecting outcomes leads to new analysis and theory". [more here ]
Geeee.... its time I cut another "This I Belive" and sharpen the saw on this concept. Thanks Tara, much appreciated, for locking down my thoughts in a nice way !!!
Looking forward to seeing you more often in Toronto .
