Knowledge Management and the Subprime/Credit Crisis

Its been a while but eventually I knew we were going to have to post something about the current economic crisis and how it affects Knowledge Management, so here we go, not one but two posts about Knowledge Management and the Subprime/Credit Crisis.

The first post "The Credit Crisis and Social Software - Part 1 - Why we need a return to credit based on social relationships" from the Fast Forward Blog discusses a social Credit system and how wealth within organisations doesn't necessarily mean how healthly your bank balance is but how healthly your social network is.

The second post Knowledge management and the world financial crisis from the Brad Hinton Blog describes how important Knowledge Management is and will be during the current crisis. From the post...

"Knowledge management also works to reduce costs through improving workflow, facilitating efficient and effective information capture, access, and dissemination, facilitates conversation and human networks, and enhances collaboration and connectivity between individuals for common purpose"

The second blog post is definitely worth reading.
