Lesser-Known KM Books; KM Toolkits; 32 KM Thought Leaders

20-Feb-06 Archive of Weekly KM Blog by Stan Garfield

NOTE: This is the first in a series of posts that restored the archives of my Weekly KM Blog from 2006–2008, first on Line56 and then on hp.com. After Setting up a KM Program: A wealth of resources and guidelines was published on February 8, 2006, this was the initial weekly blog post.

Welcome to the first entry in this series. Each week I will blog on the following three topics:

  1. KM Books
  2. KM Links
  3. KM Questions — I invite you to send me your questions and I will try to answer them.

KM Links

The Sveiby Toolkit is a support system for consultants, CKOs and individuals who wish to create a knowledge-focused strategy within organizations. The tools and methods included in the Toolkit are developed for conceptually agile people who are practical in their knowledge management approach.

The Saint-Onge Toolkit is a compilation of Hubert Saint-Onge’s signature PPT slides enhanced by rich media (video clips from live presentations). Add to this Hubert’s lessons learned from the field and you have a comprehensive blueprint for a knowledge strategy implementation appropriate for any firm.
