This post from Jack Vinson titled ‘Knowledge management is hard?’ reminded me of a presentation I give at the iKMS Conference in Singapore in November. During questions someone asked ‘why is KM so hard? Its not like its rocket science?’ A gentleman in the audience responded “Hmmm, I am a rocket scientist. In rocket science I can generally find a demonstrably correct answer. You can’t do that with KM. KM is harder than rocket science because it is so ‘soft’”.
I also met some great people at the conference. The happy snaps shows (L to R) me with Noor Faridah Rahim, Jerry Ash and David Gurteen. Thanks to Farida for the photo.
