Informl PKM revisited
The Unworkshop is still in my mind and has to some extend changed my (business) live. In particular the concept of Personal Knowledge Management (see informL | PKM) keeps me thinking, experimenting and thus learning …
Today I have revisited the PKM resources on our informL wiki and I am suggesting to rearrange the seven PKM skills.
Instead of: “(1) retrieving information; (2) evaluating/assessing information; (3) organizing information; (4) analyzing information; (5) presenting information; (6) securing information; and (7) collaborating around information”
Use: (1) retrieving information; (2) evaluating/assessing information; (3) organizing information; (4) analyzing information; (5) composing information (6) presenting information; (7) securing information
Why do I suggest this?
- Analysis and synthesis are two different tasks and require different skills and should each be represented as a separate stage
- The new skill #5 composing (or re-composing) information can be seen as the work of an individual or of a group and would therefore implicitly include the missing skill-sets on collaborating around information.
What do you think? Please let me know if you are still tuned in even though I will only be posting sporadically on my blog in English.
