Today is an auspicious day, for those who are superstitious 6–6–6 might have some particular meaning…. If you’re not superstitious, that’s ok, but today is your last chance to get in as an early bird for our marvellous Appreciative Inquiry course on July 5th and 6th. Appreciative Inquiry is a technique to facilitate organisational change. It’s […]

“I hate paper and would never recommend my organisation use it because so many people just write absolute drivel using paper.” Sounds ridiculous? Well substitute ‘blog’ for paper and that’s an opinion I’m hearing from senior executives. Hey, here’s the secret: blogging is only a technology, just like paper is a technology. Both technologies enable […]

Seth Godin put it nicely when he said that blogs are like watching a movie, if you are not there from the beginning it can be a bit hard to follow. As a result he invented Squidoo lenses that allow you to highlight important posts (among other things) based on a topic. I’ve been playing […]

Because I’m on the organising committee for Melbourne KM Leadership Forum (KMLF) and we have a blog where we are posting about KM things happening in this fine (but sometime wet, windy and cold) city.

Patrick Lambe over at Green Chameleon has written an interesting post which is half critique and half reflection.

Hexies sure are popular these days. We have just made shopping for Hexies easier. You can now buy ‘postage paid in Australia’ packs of hexies directly from our shop. They range from single packs of 12 hexies to a bulk pack of 5 x the pack of 12. They’re worth a look. After all, Hexies are better than […]

I’ve been asked by a client to propose a way to help embed knowledge behaviours. My approach will consist of creating situations where the organisation’s staff work things out for themselves and develop their own interventions (as is my way), but it did get me wondering what knowledge behaviours might be. Here are some I’d thought […]

Designing interventions requires new perspectives

Posted by  Shawn Callahan —May 28, 2006
Filed in Anecdotes, Culture

Designing interventions for complex environments requires the designers to see new patterns. Before I elaborate on this idea here is a story Steve Denning told today on the workingstories email list.
