A homework-inspired tip for building knowledge management portals

April 4, 2008 – 10:58 pm

I’m reading Alfie Kohn’s book called The Homework Myth. It triggers to me to think that many corporate knowledge management portals fails because it evolves into a type of mandatory “homework” for the participants.

Kohn suggests that “… homework… should be designed to promote two things: high-quality learning and the desire to keep learning.

Now, take replace the word “homework” with “knowledge management”, or any other knowledge initiatives you’re responsible for. Any engagements designed with this in mind will definitely be more successful.
