Personal Knowledge Management
The definition from Wikipedia:
Personal knowledge management (PKM ) is a process of collecting information that a person uses to gather, classify, store, search, retrieve and share knowledge in their daily activities (Grundspenkis 2007) and the way in which these processes support work activities (Wright 2005). It is a response to the idea that knowledge workers need to be responsible for their own growth and learning (Smedley 2009). It is a bottom-up approach to knowledge management
Personal Knowledge Management is associated closely with the idea of a second brain…
…building a “second brain” is about creating a system – outside your physical skin-and-bone bodily boundaries – for storing, organising, and eventually transforming information. (via Maggie Appleton)
Tiago Forte has also been leading the space with the idea of a Second Brain.
What is a Community Knowledge Managent?
So, from a community perspective… (a quick attempt at a definition)
Community Knowledge Management is a process for collaboratively collecting information, insights, stories and perspectives with the goal of supporting a wider reach of people with their own learning and growth.
Community Knowledge Management:
- require rules, guidelines and moderation.
- need maintenance
- promotion and marketing to the people
- should probably work on being optimised for search engines
- seek feedback and ideas
