How to Ruin a Knowledge Management Program

Mary Abraham of Above and Beyond the Law has published a link to an interesting post called "How to ruin a brainstorming session" as Mary points out many of the "bad practices" in this post can be applied to Knowledge Management. They include the following;

  • You have no clear objectives.
  • The group involved is too homogeneous.
  • Your boss is autocratic and doesn’t trust the creativity of his or her team.
  • You allow early criticism to smother creativity.
  • You settle for just a few ideas.
  • Your process lacks closure or follow through.

The problem is then how do you deal with them?
