Knowledge Management Mentoring

Would you rather learn how to implement knowledge management rather than have a consultant come in and do it for you?

I have just finished a project where I mentored/coached the main person on the client side through the creation of a Knowledge Management Strategy. She was knowledgeable and had, in fact started a strategy but got stuck. I have to say I enjoyed the experience, I wasn’t sure at first how it would go, and certainly it took longer than it would have if I had just done the work, but in the end she has a strategy that she can sell to management and she feels comfortable with how and why it was developed that way.

A win for all, I’d say.

I’m thinking I need to do more of these types of engagements, so watch for announcements.

    Good example of the classic adage about the value of teaching someone to fish rather than handing them a fish. The client acquires skills they didn’t have and you add even more value.
