Konnect is our in-house developed social software that mashes content management with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter type features. It’s viral, thriving and emergent.
In our knowledge intensive world, people need to ask. If they don’t ask, they don’t receive. If they don’t receive, the sum total of them – the organization doesn’t learn. The above cartoon is to drive people towards the right place to ask. But if you ask, and not receive – it triggers a vicious cycle. People will not trust the system (the plumbing) and they will stop asking. Dave Snowden, a Knowledge Management guru articulates this very nicely in his post from 2006. That’s the philosophy we have followed at MindTree with exceptional results. Thanks Dave for that!
