For those interested in the pursuit of Knowledge Management, I would like to recommend a couple of people/links. Most of these people I have had personal contact with, and found them to be very knowledgeable and helpful.
You can’t do any better than to get connected with the Association of Knowledgework (AOK), and Jerry Ash. AOK is an online community that examines all aspects of Knowledge Management, and attracts the top minds in the field to contribute to its body of knowledge. Once a month, AOK hosts a STAR Series where you can go one-on-one (online) with some of the leading KM professionals. Go to: http://www.kwork.org . AOK is now a part of the Ark Group, the producers of "Inside Knowledge" Magazine (formerly KM Magazine) http://www.kmmagazine.com/.
John Barrett of ITI Associates is very up to date on how KM can assist the HR professional, and his business is centered on consulting with companies that want to capture their company’s intellectual capital (not just for the HR professional). You can find John at: http://www.iti-associates.com/index.asp
Another personal contact, and a very knowledgeable KM expert is that of Bryan Davis of the Kaieteur Institute for Knowledge Management. I attended a 3-day seminar at Kaietuer and found the training to have appropriate levels of knowledge for the expert and the neophyte. Bryan not only does training, but research and consulting as well. Find out more at: http://www.kikm.org/vision.html
One of the better all purpose KM sites is that of David Gurteen. What more can I say…http://www.gurteen.com/
Of the blogs that are out there, I would recommend a couple. The first is Jack Vinson's "Knowledge Jolt" which is located at: http://blog.jackvinson.com/ . Another is Denham Grey's weblog at: http://denham.typepad.com/
I will have others as I check them out.
If you’re already a KM professional, or you just want to immerse yourself in significant KM thought (meaning cutting edge), one of the absolute leading minds in the area is David Snowden of the Cynefin Centre. You will find articles of all levels. I’ve seen David live at a conference, and he is absolutely riveting, covering complex subjects in a down-to-earth, understandable, manner. http://www.cynefin.net/
As time permits I will list other contacts that I know, as well as new sites and blogs that I have the chance to check out.
