I like the ideas put forward by Harold Jarche on personal knowledge management (PKM) in the workplace. Jarche says the idea of personal knowledge management “questions our basic, Taylorist, assumptions about work; assumptions like:
- A JOB can be described as a series of competencies that can be “filled” by the best qualified person.
- Somebody in a classroom, separate from the work environment, can “teach” you all you need to know.
- The higher you are on the “org chart”, the more you know (one of the underlying premises of job competency models).”
