Complexity and Knowledge Management Navigators…

Happy Birthday K3: 2 days of free consulting time to celebrate

*** Update (Dec 3rd 2012) – We received 11 correct entries for the competition and at 17:10 GMT today Paul Thomas followed competition protocol and selected Mark Gould, Head of Knowledge Management for Addleshaw Goddard LLP – Mark was the first to respond to the competition (actually within 15 minutes of the posting) and so I am very pleased that it went to him.  We had 8 entries from the UK, 1 from Germany and 2 from the United States – thank you to all who entered and look out for next year’s competition for 3 free days) ***

K3-Cubed officially turned two this week.  We were lucky to have our start-up funded by the University of Edinburgh and, as part of our commitment to give back, we are celebrating by giving away 2 days of free consulting time (one day for each year and we will keep doing this every year…gulp!).  This is open to individuals or organisations, regardless of sector/location, and the only caveat is that you are responsible for expenses (at actual cost) if travel is required.

If you are interested all you have to do is answer the following question:

According to our research, in what year was the term ‘Knowledge Management’ first used? (the answer is in the blog)

Please email your answer to – this competition is open until 17:00 GMT on Monday, December 3rd 2012.  All entries will be assigned a number and the winner will be selected by random number generator, with the whole process being managed by a third party who has nothing to do with the company (just to avoid bias).

To those who have trusted us to solve their challenges over the last two years, a big thank you.  To those who read this blog and make us feel as if it is all worth it, thank you.  Finally, if you haven’t already, and if you like the content of this blog, please take the time to support us by following us on Twitter, ‘liking’ the K3 Facebook page or endorsing skills and expertise on LinkedIn

Here’s to another exciting year… starting with a visit to Turin and Dubai in December, then onto Indianapolis, Naples (Florida, not Italy), Helsinki and Kuwait (our first KM professional development course at the American University of Kuwait – see our Facebook page for the flyer) – Fun times!

One last time, thank you – David Griffiths (Founder)

    Hi David,

    Wishing K3-Cubed a happy second birthday. I have followed your progress and many excellent articles with interest. You are always topical and seeking to push the boundaries beyond established comfort zones. Your success in so many areas reflects the very positive impression you make with those people and organisations you work with. What an offer you are making. I think you might be facing something of a stampede in your direction. I look forward to hearing more from you : – )

    Best wishes,

      Cheers, Glenn.

      I’m hoping that this will provide an opportunity for organisations/individuals who need support, but are struggling to find budget in the current economic environment.

      I did get a correct response within 15 minutes of posting, which, I have to be honest, I found really heartening.

      Thanks again for the kind words…
