I’ve long advocated that the best way to encourage a learning and sharing environment is by enabling Connections rather than relying on Collections of codified knowledge stored in a database or in a web site. In other words, bring people together who share a common goal or issue; connecting peers and/or connecting experts with practioners. All of this is embodied within the new KM Strategy I have developed for the Improvement & Development Agency. A brief introducton to the strategy can be found on the IDeA web site.
