We’re at an interesting stage in our open research project on how expertise is valued and leveraged in organisations. We’ve collected something close to 200 stories (which are still feeding into the project blog) and we’ve conducted four sensemaking workshops so far, three in Australia (thanks to Michelle / KMRt , Anecdote / actKM & Kim / UTS) and one just completed yesterday in Dubai (thanks to Luke Naismith and the Knowledge and Human Development Authority), with more planned for Singapore, USA and maybe Hong Kong.
The workshop outputs are being posted into the project wiki. (If you are interested in hosting a workshop somewhere, let us know… we don’t charge as it’s a community research project, we just need to figure out travel and expenses).
We’ve now got to the point where we’re starting to get some insights that we’d like to check out on a larger scale through a survey. It’s short and snappy, and you’ll get to see the responses so far once you’ve completed (or go back and visit as the survey unfolds). Please do visit and take the survey and pass it on to anyone else you think might be interested.
