Complexity and Knowledge Management Navigators…
The latest figures from the 2011 Baines & Company 2011 management Tools Report provides disturbing reading for those of us calling for changes to KM practice. KM usage is in steep decline. The following diagram is KM’s usage within organisations as part of their review of the top 25 strategic management tools (responses from over 1500 executives informed these findings).
The facts deliver a simple message, we’re getting it wrong! The executive summary for this report clearly states that innovation is the biggest concern for executive management teams. KM is perfectly placed to respond to this and yet KM is in decline!
I’ve blogged a lot recently about the need for a response from KMers and I’ll leave those posts to do my talking for me here. The clearest message is the grey line in the chart above.
